My favourite spring coats under £50

 Recently I have been browsing the sites online looking for some new clothes as I feel like I need a new look or a refresh in my wardrobe at least. I started looking for Spring coats mainly as the coats I own are rather bulky and winter-esque. I have picked quite muted colours as I am not a huge lover of bright shades as they can make me look even more Casper-ish than normal!

My favourite spring coats
I have found 6 of my favourites which I have listed below including their links and the prices I saw them at. These were the prices as of 24/02/15 but understandably these can sell out quickly at these prices.
  1. Wool Blend Coat – £27 – newlook.com
  2. Chicnova Fashion Coat – £28 – chicnova.com
  3. Black duster Coat – £28 – newlook.com
  4. Monki White Coat – £29 – monki.com
  5. Grey tweed coat – £20 – romwe.com
  6. ASOS funnel Coat – £24 – asos.com

If I had lots of pennies I would have snapped them all up straight away so I plan to think about them properly before parting with any money, and I may spot another one I like in the meantime 🙂

Have you found any coats/jackets you can share with me?

Thanks

Defining Your own Success

The title may appear a bit vague but I really wanted to write a post about success and how to measure it. This isn’t success in your blogging or posting but I feel it’s important to talk about success in your life or career. I have a had a few up and down weeks recently with lots of things going on which has made me doubt myself or moves I have made in my career. Now it has all calmed down and I had some brilliant news in regards to a promotion, I wanted to share some thoughts with you all.

I am 24 and work for a very large company and have done so for just over 5 years now. When I started at 19 I wasn’t sure what my direction would be or whether I would still be there after 12 months etc. In my head I thought it would be short term to earn some money then go onto University. Needless to say that idea soon disappeared! I have moved up in my positions within the company and am now moving onto a role that will give me a stepping stone for the future and a lot of valuable experience. Some of you will be thinking “How can she think that’s not success?” or “She’s done really well!” and I will agree that this has finally sunk in with me recently.

I have taken some time to think about where I want to go in my career recently and have become really headstrong about the path I want and things I am going to do over the next 12 months to get moving up that career ladder. It’s hard to not get down about things and having interviews where the end result is a big fat NO! If I can say anything it would be to use every experience to your advantage and take in all the feedback they give you. I have worked so hard over the last 6 months to improve how I come across in interviews and how to impress people who have never met you before. My boyfriend is a huge support and is always right behind me helping me before interviews and cheering me on. He is really career focused as well which I think may have rubbed off on me now.

My sound advice after having plenty of interviews and rejections and not feeling like I was getting anywhere, is “Don’t let it get you down!” Inside of you somewhere is what they are looking for and you just need to have that belief that one day you will be where you want. Accept what people tell you and feedback as they aren’t saying it for the sake of it and it will be a benefit.

Have any of you had any sound career advice that you can share with me?
