Getting back on it.

Well, we've some how hit mid-week and so far I've been feeling really motivated. It would seem that feeling down about the unemployment situation is lessening, and I am willing to put it down to Walk 4 Work.

But I think I'm probably ready to stop talking about it now. Today I had an interview, although it was at a solicitors as a client receptionist, I don't think I would mind doing it so much. The interview was different from anything I have done before, we had a role-playing exercise and the questions were incredibly structured, they were writing nearly everything down(!) I think thinking on the spot may have got me somewhere but I'm a bit unsure.

Things seem to be looking up generally though, as I have another interview set up next week too. It seems to perhaps be more within the creative industry, but we'll see how everything goes.

This is what I wore to my interview. Nothing that exciting, I didn't wear the bowler hat but I thought I'd pay a final homage to Walk 4 Work. I wonder what would have happened if I had turned up in a bowler hat.

Naturally, I had to make sure I had a fresh coat of nail polish on. Closer magazine were banging on about nail art this week with a brief mention of Nails Inc's magnetic polish. Sadly I am not a millionaire and am not willing to fork out £13 for a nail polish, so I settled for getting excited about 17's version.

I bought it last week and opted for the lilac shade, it's pretty clever technology (if that's the right word). The polish contains tiny iron particles that make cool patterns when a magnet is held over it. It's awesome!
On it's own it's a nice colour but I'm all about effects, and it's a bit less intense than crackle polishes. I also think that for £5.99 RRP (although it's currently only £4.99 at Boots) it's a lot better value than it's counterparts. It's really good quality too, I mean maybe my top coat is just good, but it's fairly chip-resistant so far, I might even keep it on for more than a day. Last time I wore it I had it on for a whole 3 days, a record in my stopping nail-biting saga. I can't take my eyes of the cool 3D effect, it's available in 100 Boots stores nationwide now!
