Lots and lots has happened recently. Lots that you guys don’t know about because I have been neglecting my poor blog. Well, brace yourselves; the time has come for an update and a half.
Where to start. I’ll start at the very beginning, a very good place to start.
Shortly after my last post I got invited for an interview for a start up company, Group Commerce. An American company specialising in e-commerce, they’d come over to London (and moved into a very nice office in Leicester Square [with a fully stocked drinks fridge]) to take over the daily deals market.
As an avid Groupon hater, of their writing style that is, I was sceptical of the position GC was offering – a copy writer. If you haven’t read Groupon copy you will get the jist from the great article below ->
But I went for the interview, in which I was given a laptop and 15 minutes and instructed to write a deal for a French restaurant. Using the word finesse and a joke about it being cheaper than a Eurostar ticket landed me the job! (I was also flattered to hear they’d been searching for a long time, so were happy to have finally found me too ;)).
So I have spent the last three months making some great new friends, having a lot of fun, becoming an independent woman, quitting smoking (two weeks clean bitches) and writing for Nectar, Evening Standard, Telegraph, OK magazine and Daily Express. I turned 22, drank a lot over Christmas, I had all my hair cut off on stage, travelled around the country, I partied a lot, met Borris, kind of joined a gym and I’m super excited about 2013.
Here are examples of the stuff I’ve been writing for those DYING to see. And more importantly, here’s some pictures of my last three months. (with some of my winter outfits too).
