New Job

My new job: my fresh start

If you had told me at the start of February what I’d be doing now, I would have laughed at you. I would have said that it was absolutely impossible that today, now, I’d be sitting on my couch writing a blog about my first week in my new career. I just didn’t think it…

Work Experience

My venture into the wonderful world of work experience!

I had a really exciting adventure this week. I took a couple of days holiday from my ‘real job’ and went on work experience. I know, I know, work experience is usually reserved for 15 year-olds skiving off school for a week to make tea and clean paint brushes, but why should kids have all…

Brexit

Let’s talk about earnings inequality, Theresa!

Theresa May has been Prime Minister for just over six months, and when she took over the country’s top job, she inherited a lot of baggage. The most hefty case she was given to lug was Brexit which, if you were in any doubt, means Brexit. One of the suggested contributing factors to the Brexit…

Southern Rail Strikes

Is Southern Rail’s reputation ruined?

I live in the North and drive a car, however the drama down South about Southern Rail has been hard to ignore. The company wants to remove conductors, leaving trains to operate with only drivers and, as a result, there have been a number of strikes. These strikes have left thousands of commuters stranded or…

Money Apps

Money management apps and where to find them

The internet is both a blessing and a curse. Yes, it’s full of trolls who create fake accounts to make nasty comments to strangers, but it’s also full of helpful websites and apps to help you improve your life. The new year is a great time to re-evaluate what’s going on in your life; whether…

New Year Resolution

New Year resolutions: are they really worth it?

I decided to write this post after someone shared a post from the Telegraph with me. It comes off the back of the New Year and the influx of resolutions. I’m a heavy Facebook and Twitter user, and you can’t move for ‘new year, new you’ posts. Everyone seems to be giving things up to…

Confidence Boost

Give your career a well needed confidence boost!

A few months ago, I wrote about impostor syndrome and how it could impact your earning. Talking recently with a colleague about my career aspirations and how I’d like to move more into a writing based role, these words came out of my mouth… ‘I assumed I’d have to look for internal jobs as no one…

Tampon Tax

The autumn statement: what it means for our tampon tax

A couple of weeks go, our dear chancellor, Phillip Hammond, produced his autumn statement – AKA ‘the budget’. Yep, instead of doing the budget in the spring, you know, round the time the financial year starts, the government is now going to review the country’s spending in the autumn. Apparently, this will give us more time to…

Ethical Christmas

Ethical Christmas gifts: kind on the wallet and the conscience

Christmas is right around the corner and, for some people (those less organised than me), that means a last minute trolley dash to find presents for their nearest and dearest. Christmas also carries with it two conflicting messages: one is the spirit of generosity and giving, and the other is of excess (over spending, over…

Borrowing Lending Money

Borrowing and lending money: the dos and definite don’ts

To quote Bill Shakespeare (or one of his characters, at least) ‘neither a borrower nor a lender be.’ To quote me (a fan of Shakespeare but nowhere near as skilled as the Bard) ‘borrowing and lending money can be a potential friendship anthrax.’ Now, when I sat down to write this article, I had no…
