Having graduated with a First Class degree in Human Resources with Business Management and been lucky enough to secure a couple of great jobs in HR I honestly thought my 'school days' were over. Then the opportunity of a postgrad CIPD diploma came up in my new job and the geek in me just couldn't say no!
I recently arrived home to find this:
And inside? My very own SOS kit to help me with my postgrad stress!
In the box:
Snacks - Kallo fruity muesli and yoghurt thins and a Little Miracles drink
Tools - a handy mirror to throw in my uni bag and a little sparkly denman brush
Beauty - fake tan, mascara and toothpaste
Hair - batiste cherry (my fave!), dry conditioner and plumping powder.
Of course the snacks didn't last long. I munched my way through the thins whilst doing revision and drank the drink on the day of my exam. Both delicious and highly recommended!
The mirror and brush live in my university tote bag because doing the morning at work and then being at uni until 8pm means all day on a Wednesday I'm running around like a headless chicken.
Hair wise, when you're pushed for time, leaving home early and getting home late there is nothing better than dry shampoo and a good plumping powder. Generally I spray the dry conditioner through the very ends of my hair when it's looking particularly dry and rubbish and I don't use the dry shampoo at the same time as the plumping powder. They're all incredible and I have nothing but them to thank for every single one of my good hair days since September!
I'll be honest, the mascara didn't blow my mind but it is handy to carry around for immediate volume and a makeup touch up.
I'm saving the fake tan for now, it's not something I use often and I want to keep it fresh for an occasion when I do use it. I love a bit of St Moriz though, it's so affordable and doesn't go orange.
I could do with having something similar delivered to me every month to help me survive the next year and a half!
Thanks for reading! xo
