Bournemouth Beach snapshots..

Last weekend, me and my family took a trip down to Bournemouth and spent the afternoon at the beach! I was so looking forward to going as I haven't been to the beach in years, I've also been wanting to go for ages so finally being here was great. The weather was perfect too, it was nice getting to just relax whilst you heard the waves of the ocean, I wish I lived a bit closer to the beach, it's such a great way to just chill. I took some photos that I of course had to share with you guys so take a look :)

Work Experience

As you may know, I'm currently studying Law at university and last week I had my first work experience at a law firm in London and I'd like to share my experience with you guys. The law firm I worked for was Howe and Co Solicitors, this law firm has been working in partnership with my university to hold a student law clinic, which I joined a little earlier this year. They were kind enough to offer us work experience during summer holidays as it's very important to get as much experience as you can as a law student, so I definitely took on this opportunity. 

I was only there for 3 days, which isn't much but it's better than nothing. On my first day I was greeted by one of the solicitors who has been working at the law clinic at my university and shown around all the meeting rooms and then was taken up to the offices to meet the other solicitors. Everyone there was super friendly and very helpful. During my time there I was doing research on a case that one of the solicitors was working on, before starting I wasn't too sure what exactly I would to be doing during my time there but I'm really glad to have been given the task of helping out on a case. 

It was quite surreal at first, I was actually working along side other solicitors, dealing with a real case! I mean, I've worked on real cases whilst being at the law clinic at university but there was something about being in the environment of a law firm.. it was so exciting lol. 

I'm glad to have been given this opportunity, I had spent some time trying to get work experience but couldn't seem to secure anything. I had a part to play in that though because I didn't apply to enough places soon enough (I'm a very last minute person, I know.. I need to sort that out) but I began getting very disheartened and almost having to accept the fact that I wouldn't be getting any work experience this summer. I am so thankful that Howe and Co were able to take me on and I'm hoping I can return during the Christmas holidays as well. For those who are also studying law, make sure you apply for plenty of work experience. One thing our lectures keep telling us at university is that once you graduate and go looking for a job, recruiters want to see what experience you've had, not just how good your grades are, which is of course important but so is actually getting some sort of experience. 

So there you have it! You'll definitely be seeing more posts any other work experience I do in the future.

Brunch at Fego

Yesterday me and my boyfriend went to a small cafe in Marlow for brunch. My best friend has recommended this place to me for a while now so it was about time I went! Besides, me and boyfriend love trying out new places so we were excited to be coming here. I'm surprised I've never seen this cafe before as it's right along the high street but as it's quite small, without an obvious sign, you might just miss it. After walking up and down the high street, with the help of google maps we found it in the end lol.

Yauatcha Soho

Last Saturday me and my family went out to London for my brothers birthday meal.. he is now 19 and I can't believe it, he's almost in his 20s and as the older sibling that freaks me out! Lol. He had found this restaurant on google just at random and we decided to book it straight away due to the great reviews and rating.

Do something about it!

I've been wanting to get this post up for the past couple of weeks and I'm happy to finally be taking the time out to write it. I've really been slacking with my posts lately and let me explain why.. For some time I've been feeling really low about my appearance, this has effected my mood massively. I was feeling down constantly not really knowing why, I became so unproductive with a lot, I wasn't in the right mindset to blog, I felt unhappy all the time.. all because I was no longer confident in my body and purely just unhappy with it.
