I have been a fan of Charlotte Tilbury’s make up ever since it came out a few years ago – I think the lipsticks and the original mascara are stand out products. While I have not tried much of the skincare line (I think (!) I tried the magic cream a few years back and remember thinking it was nice enough), I was very excited about the launch of the cleansing duo last December. I was also finishing up the cleanser I was using at the time (Philosophy’s Purity Made Simple) which worked well with my ‘one out, one in’ mentality when it comes to skincare & make up.
I have been working mostly from home for about 6 months now and, you know what? It can be really isolating at times! Like most of the time. I have fallen into a trap where I stay in my PJ’s all day, with my hair up in an odd shapeless bun and start working before I even had my breakfast.
I was going to do a post on things to do when you are bored and include completing a Coursera course as one of them but actually the topic really deserves an entry of its own.
If you are unfamiliar with Coursera (or EDx which is also a very similar concept), the website hosts hundreds of courses on a wide range of topics – from data science to political science to personal development courses. The courses are sourced from Universities around the world and usually consist of video content, recommended readings and assignments.
Long time no blog… I started this blog after my trip from Japan when I was still so wonderfully jetlagged and needed something to do at 4am in the morning. And then the jetlag went away and reality of day-to-day life sunk in.
So what’s happened since? I moved jobs multiple times. Then moved from London to Dubai. Then 2 weeks ago quit my job to pursue a Masters course in International Relations and am working off my 3 month notice. No one can say this has been an uneventful few years!
With my new found freedom and flexibility (once my notice period is over), I want to resurrect this blog and share my experiences of studying again, life in the Middle East and trying to figure out my next steps.
Secret Style of a City Girl 2.0 is on!
Things have been busy (and, in all seriousness, when are they not busy?). Work, social commitments, more work and trying to keep on top of the laundry pile take up 90% of my time.
… I know I made some.
It’s one of the iconic Carrie Bradshaw’s lines and also one that I mutter to myself quite often.
