Blog Every Day in May #2: Spring is Here!

Hello! It's been such a gorgeous spring day! And I've actually been able to get out and enjoy it for a couple of hours. Dare I say, I even caught the sun? As you can see, I am in such desperate need of a tan. Anyway, I love spring because it's the perfect excuse to go for a stroll, eat ice cream and fruit salads or even pack a picnic. So basically, I just love food. And sunshine and fun and friends. Oh and fashion. I can't wait to buy some new summer clobber and get my legs out. I've been squatting - I am ready! There's nothing nicer, on a spring day, than heading off to the park. Today, I wrote a little of my MA assignment in the park. I always feel carefree and chilled out, when the sun is on my skin. Just me? Having recently delved deeper into building on my career, I made some exciting plans today and although scary, it was a little bit nicer, doing it in this glorious weather. I grabbed an hour with a friend and even made my very first daisy cha

Melly's Musings: Criticism

My first post in over a month is an honest, straight-to-the-point one but it's positive. Enjoy...

Melly's Musings: Cyber Bullying

Morning. I hadn't planned to write this post - it wasn't scheduled or anything like that but I decided that something needed to be said. Over the past few days, I've had a couple of rather unpleasant comments on here. I won't dwell on them but the first one was a little cheeky. The second was downright mean and nasty. Now, I'm all for constructive criticism and I work constantly to improve the quality of what's on the blog, with regular features etc. And even invested in (read: was gifted with) a new camera. So, you have to understand that the blog is a work in progress. Also, might I add, a hobby. I work full time. One comment asked me my 'credentials'. My job is in Marketing, within the internet development team of a top UK jeweller. I don't need credentials to write a blog. Being a blogger is about having an interest in something. It's also about being brave enough to put yourself out there and I will always expect comments from people.

Melly's Musings: Working Girl

So, I've been rather naughty and neglected this blog a little but I'm back. And thought it’d be cool to show you what I’ve been up to, at work. As you’ll know, from this post , I’m a marketing copywriter for a fabulous jewellers . And as if by some miracle, the main crux of my job description is to blog. Woohoo! It’s like a dream come true. So, here are a couple of the guest posts that I’ve done for other blogs, on behalf of T H Baker. One post is all about how I’ll be rocking maxi skirts this summer. Which, as far as I’m concerned are the go-to item for this weird we’re-not-quite-sure-if-it’s-really-summer sort of weather. They look great with just a vest top or layered up with a gilet. Anyway, enough of my yapping, you can check the post out here . And secondly, I wrote a little Graduation Gift Guide – handy for this time of year, so check it out. I feel so blessed to have walked into a job, literally 5 weeks after finishing my degree. Although, it’s more excit

Fun at Focus Day

I had a bit of a change from the norm today. A welcome break from my new full time status and an all round brilliant one, at that. I awoke to a text from my old English teacher the other day, asking if I would like to go back to school to assist with Focus Day. I thought about my answer for all of about five seconds, before promising to get in touch with her, as soon as I had asked for the morning off work. As mentioned in my previous post , I have a new job. So I felt a little bit cheeky asking for time off but they were fine about it, on the condition that I made the time up. I arrived to a reserved visitors parking space but I didn't take a photo to treasure the memory (boo). It's always nice to pop in (very) occasionally and say hi to the teachers that you actually liked and blank out the awful bits of school. Media and English were where I hung out, so I was happy to be hanging out there. I thought Focus Day was fun, as a teenager but it's even better when you&
