Works Weekly Fashion

What a week! Just when I thought life was seriously plummeting downwards after returning from my incredible adventure in Tanzania... Friday has come about with an absolute BANG!

But let me start from the beginning...




I have been absolutely LOVING yellow blazers for so long, seeing them on all my blogging friends fashion posts left, right and centre! 
South Africa just doesn't seem to have many edgy, funky clothing that is affordable so when I stumbled across this awesome blazer in Mr. Price (the equivalent of UK's Primarks...) I could not resist! I know I'm supposed to be saving my money away right now to pay for my ridonkulously expensive dentist bill and to also eventually fly over to Mauritius and Bali... and India.... and Ireland for St. Patty's day...... I'll stop now! Many travel plans ahead! It may just take a while.... 


On Thursday I had to do a show house for work (I work at an international real-estate agency). 
You know all those boards people drive by on their way to work that have FOR SALE printed across it or in my case: SHOW DAY....???? The boards everyone LOVES to vandalize or steal??? 
Yeah well it was my job to hammer in about nineteen boards. Only one got stolen though, across from a local pub.... figures. 
Another got cracked in half. 
Back to the point ... I decided to wear my: KEEEEEEYAAAA!!!! (insert karate sound there) clothing. Hammering in nineteen real estate boards is HARD! It got seriously hot and tiring and it was a beautiful Spring day too so I suffered big time! It was much better than being cooped up in an office all day though so I really have no complaints. 


Friday.... today everything changed for me. 
I had been feeling really low and stressed out to the point where even blogging seemed like a chore to me. I have been really quiet lately and for that I'm sorry. 
I spoke with the real estate agency and was extremely honest with them. I told them that after a month there I've realized that it really isn't the environment for me. 
They are sad to see me leave and made me feel really good by saying that I had been such a huge help to them and was a fast learner but that they understood. 
Directly after that I was offered a job at a Fine Arts Gallery in the centre of town!!!!!! 
I was so unbelievably happy I hugged the lady who interviewed me (who also happens to be my English Teacher from school days!!) and she gave me a big hug back, welcoming me to the team. 

So real estate is no more than a distant memory to me. 

I now have acquired my absolute dream job working in an artistic environment, a beeeautiful fine arts gallery in town. It is so much more 'me'. Words cannot describe the relief and happiness that I feel right now. 

Working in that environment is going to be such a huge inspiration for me while I study my photo journalism course too. Finally it feels like this could be it.... this could be where I am supposed to be. I hope and pray that it is and cannot wait to start there hopefully as early as next week!

Have an incredible weekend bloggers! I know I will :) 

Peace and love!
