You're looking at a Thompson Travel Rep!



Dress - Primark - £12
Earrings - Oasis
Shoes - New Look (old)

I actually bought this dress a fair few weeks ago as soon as I spotted it in a Look Magazine email however I thought to do a post with it as I know it is still in Primark stores. I was a bit sadden when I picked it up to realise it was made of a material I do not enjoy too much, a polyester that clings to your figure more than a magnet to a fridge. So I have therefore always opted for the Bridget Jones' pants whilst wearing this dress to tuck away the podge.

The earrings I won in a give away with some elf makeup too, from the wonderful Tasha of Wand Included! They are from Oasis and are absolutely gorgeous, golden and magical as are cute butterflies!

Right, now to tell you all the fabulous news. On Saturday I headed over to Luton for an Assessment day with Thompson Travel, a day of which I did last year but was straight away unsuccessful. However I managed to get through to the second half of the day this time and today I received THAT phone call telling me I am now a Thompson Travel Representative and will be working abroad in a hotel abroad for 6 months as of April! I am so excited as I have wanted to do this since about the age of 10! I thought I would never get the chance!

Also, I have somehow reached an Incredible 331 followers! I do not know how to thank all of you gorgeous people enough, I do really think anything can take this happy mood away from me!!

  26. First of all I want to say thank you for commenting on my blog as now I have found your blog, whICH I think may be possibly one of my favourites EVER!

    Also I have attended the Tui interview in luton and my oh my is that a hard interview,so much harder than Thomas Cook! so well done for getting offered your summer placement. I have also heard on the grapevine that Tui/thomson/firstchoice are a bettercompany to work for and the benefits are better:)

    As I said I attended the TUI interview but turned my summer placement down (I got benedorm) for Tenerife which I was offered by Thomas Cook, I had an amazing season repping and most of all because it lead me to meet my other half, two years later we are still together. Thomas Cook have a lot to answer to but also they gave me the best summer of my life.

    If you need any tips or tricks for preparing for your life as a rep please get in touch,even if its what an earth do you bring for 6 months to kee in with luggage allowance, I warn you now this is a NIGHTMARE!

    One thing I am sad about is when you leave to go repping you will not ever, no chance in hell have time for blogging trust me its such hard work. I will make the most of the next 5 months as I just love your blog.

    sorry for such a long comment, but I needed to say the things I did

    lots of love
