It's a problem free philosophy..Hakuna Matata!!

Pretty much ever since I was born, I have always been obsessed with Disney. Disney Barbie's, posters, bath toys, dolls, videos (DVD's when they were invented), songs and obviously thinking I'm a Disney princess. I always wanted to be Belle but these days I have so much love for the sea I think I would have to be Ariel. Plus I have red hair so that's perfect and how cool would it be to be a mermaid.

I definitely couldn't pick a favourite.. Beauty & the Beast, Lion King, Pocahontas, Hunchback of Notre Dame, Nemo, The Little Mermaid, Snow White etc.. There is too many I love. Old Disney is for sure the best, I mean I love Tangled but I think the older Disney films and characters/songs are so much better. Maybe it's because, that is what I have grown up with. I had so many Disney princess outfits when I was little, my favourite was the gold ball gown Belle wore, I rocked that dress (awesome picture below).
I am currently trying to replenish all my old Disney videos onto DVD's. Disney DVD's are just so expensive. I know they are classic's but I'm no millionaire. So my plan is to be aware of Tesco's Disney deals and basically ask for one every year for my birthday/Christmas. So far I have received at least 2 every year..I'm getting there.

Last Christmas was extra special, instead of a DVD my mum bought me tickets to go and see Disney on Ice at the o2 Arena. I'm not going to lie I screamed. One of the best presents ever. It was such a good show and I came away with more merchandise than most of the children (a tad embarrassing) but who cares. It was a bit awkward that in the row where I was sitting the average age was about 4. Stood out like a sore thumb.

I have found that when I'm watching Disney films these days, you notice the darker side of the films which obviously when you are younger you haven't got the foggiest about. So I did a bit of research and was reading about the real stories of some of the Disney princess. They are a tad different to the films (by tad I mean a lot) but quite interesting, I would definitely recommend having a little read on the internet. I do think that as a child it gives children false hope about life. As for me, I was the na├»ve child that thought I was going to meet my prince charming and live in a castle. And here I am still living with my parents, worrying about first world problems and singing Disney songs to my dog. (Saaaaaaddd).

My love for Disney will never fade, I feel it will only get stronger. YES DISNEY!

Yes I'm still unemployed!

So my life currently consists of looking for jobs, making a brew, looking for more jobs, watch Jeremy Kyle and continue job searching!

I'm not gonna lie and say it's the most thrilling experience ever..it's definitely not. I am so determined to keep looking and find a job that I know I will rock at. For me that is PR. I have such a passion for PR and social media. This is definitely the industry I want to go in to. So far it's been pretty clear that there is so many jobs in London, but the competition is stiff. 

I couldn't count how many times I have seen a job specification, then seen '1-2 years experience required'. If I see this again I will scream. It baffles me that so many companies want fresh talent (a graduate one would think) but are not willing to let a graduate show what they've got. So where in gods name are we ment to find jobs then?? In my opinion graduates are the ones that want the job more and are willing to work so much harder to fulfil their potential. 
 
I think it's so important to have an open mind and not give up. I've had a few interviews and too many rejections (it's almost embarrassing). You will never get anywhere without trying. I'm a massive trier and will NOT give up easily! If anything see every interview as relevant experience than you can learn from and use in the future! 

So basically, it's the hardest thing ever to maintain positive and keep going. It will all pay off in the end..I hope!

CLASS OF 2014

YAY I FINALLY GRADUATED!!!!
After the hardest but most exciting 3 years of my life, I'm leaving Brunel for good. This is a bitter sweet moment. I couldn't even describe this experience, it was amazing..fantastic..challenging..fun..perfect..hard..a life lesson!! There is so many ways I could describe it.
I can't even believe when I was in sixth form I was considering not going, pretty much the best decision ever. Brunel was the best choice, it was like a little village. Everything you could need (alcohol, alcohol and more alcohol) was in walking distance. Basically, a students dream. Although I hated the typical 'I'm so poor' every 2 seconds. I may have spent 97.9% of my time worrying about money but it was well worth it. I think that's the one thing I won't miss, is not having much money but then again I loved living away from home and being independent.
I'm now an independent woman!! LOOOOL

I really don't think I could pick one highlight. I think third year was my favorite. Even though it was the toughest when it came to the work I made the bestest of friends in my third year and lived with some right legends who I hope will be life long friends. I mean freshers was amazing..the stuff I remember! Like chatting at 5 in the morning because we had nothing better to do, but the arguments I was unfortunately involved in, in first year made it a little difficult. I think first year made me more fun but also made me more argumentative and out-going. Seeing as I used to be the quite girl in the corner, I for sure won't let anyone walk all over me. Don't mess with Hayls.

I will miss all the great friends I made and I'm sure they will be life long friends.

Graduation could of possibly been the greatest most proudest day of my life. I may have only got a 2.1 but it was such a proud moment. I think my parents were proud, they don't really show much emotion. But it was the most special day.

Shoes from New Look

Start of my journey! (Cringe)

Soooo, I've started this blog to basically write my whole journey in the big bad world. Sounds cringe but I'm loving life and I love everything to do with social media and being a Bzzzz. What better way to feed my addiction (least I'm not addicted to drugs) than starting my own blog. Great idea right.

I do tend to talk quite a bit so this is perfect for me. Anything from general life questions to jobs to fashion. I love so much in life, the possibilities are endless. 
Hope you enjoy, even if it is just a little. That's Cool.

So Hi world I'm Hayley (Known by Hayls), I have fabulous ginger hair which I love lots. Its my trade mark and I'm definitely a proud ginger.
20 year old graduate ready to take on London. Bring it.

MWAAAAAHHHHHHH
