This week I have been so intensely exhausted that vast quantities of caffeine have been the only conceivable way to get me through the days. I’d like to say that it was because I’ve been working so hard, but actually it’s probably got more to do with the fact that I have been up until the early hours of the morning each night this week absolutely glued to the book that I am currently reading. It’s so good.

So I’ve vowed that this week I will be asleep early every night to put me in top form for the week ahead. I’ve now fully embraced my new role at work and I’m spending all day every day writing, researching and coordinating marketing campaigns which is just so much fun! It certainly takes more brainpower than my old job and I’m thinking that’s probably another reason I’m so sleepy!

This weekend I went to Liverpool with my best friend and her boyfriend to see the Andy Warhol exhibition that is currently on at the Tate which was incredible. I left feeling inspired to actually begin to put into practice all of the ideas that I currently have bouncing around in my head. I miss producing art every day, I miss taking photographs, editing, filming. I miss modelling. So I am absolutely determined to start doing more of the above, and next year on a much larger scale so that I can start living the life I both love and want.

I hope you’re all having as inspiring and fun a weekend as I have!

    Haha I know exactly how it feels with the sleeping thing, even though I get up early everyday for work and love my sleep I seem to be incapable of going to bed early! It's definitely my resolution to try and sort it out soon as well but I can't see me sticking to it, I'm too set in this pattern of having little sleep I think!Louise /

      It's ridiculous isn't it?! I'm sure I'll feel much better all round if I actually get a proper nights sleep one of these days! xo

    Sounds like you've had a busy week! If you don't mind me asking, how did you get into a marketing campaign kind of job? Did you go to Uni? It's something I'm interested in going into myself 🙂 xxHannah x | hannatalks

      I did go to Uni, however I didn't even complete my first year due to medical reasons – I was studying photography and journalism but I don't think it had any indication on getting this job. I actually joined the company in an administrative role and when the marketing role became available my boss (who knew I blogged and loved writing etc) asked me to put together some mock campaigns for him which he showed the other directors. They were that impressed with them they gave me the job – it just sort of proves that if you want something enough and work hard enough for it you'll get there in the end 🙂 Good luck with it! xo

      Thank you for the response! Glad to see it can be done without uni. I'll make sure to continue blogging and work hard! 🙂 xxHannah x | hannatalks
