This June has been an unbelievably stressful and rewarding month of my life. Finishing my dissertation required a large amount of resilience and determination. My hard work and dedication enabled me to finish a piece of work that I am immensely proud of. Since, I have taken some time to fully relax which I have never had the opportunity to do before. My fitness levels have increased and as restrictions of lockdown have reduced I’ve taken the time to spend some quality time with close friends and family. With my 21st birthday approaching in July I am taking this unprecedented time to reflect on what I have achieved and plan what I want my future to look like. I hope you’re all happy and doing well!
After 3 rewarding years reading BA Hons Fashion Marketing & Management at University of Southampton, Winchester School of Art I handed in my Final Major Project/Dissertation titled Gucci Travel Club in June. Throughout my time at university not only have I been enthralled by a subject that I absolutely adore, but I also learnt the most valuable life lessons and formed friendships that will last a lifetime. My Mumma has always said that university is not only about learning your craft it’s mainly incredibly grounding for a person, I couldn’t agree more. I lived in university halls for the first year, then private halls for the second and third years which I nicknamed my ‘New York Apartment’. I feel incredibly overwhelmed that my university experience was cut short due to Coronavirus however, it gave me the opportunity to work undistracted on my final project.
I was incredibly fortunate to go on 3 trips of a lifetime while at university. In first year, I visited Berlin, second year I travelled to Florence and in third year I visited my bucket list destination; New York. Each trip I learnt numerous clandestine facts about the fashion industry. When visiting Florence, the group visited a perfumery named Sileno Cheloni where the informed experts offer a personalised scent experience made from all-natural ingredients. Sileno Cheloni creates the signature scent that Gucci uses within their stores; I find sensory marketing exceptionally fascinating.
Now that I have finished university and I have a small break before finding my dream fashion job I will take the time to post about my university projects on this blog. I may even make a few YouTube videos explaining the innovations. Expect a lot of posting coming your way!

THE MAN WHO DIDN’T CALL – BY ROSIE WALSH
CLICK HERE FOR LINK TO PURCHASE
Imagine you meet a man, spend seven glorious days together, and fall in love. And it’s mutual: you’ve never been so certain of anything.
So when he leaves for a long-booked holiday and promises to call from the airport, you have no cause to doubt him.
But he doesn’t call.
Your friends tell you to forget him, but you know they’re wrong: something must have happened; there must be a reason for his silence.
What do you do when you finally discover you’re right? That there is a reason – and that reason is the one thing you didn’t share with each other?
