Living a Lie


This is a tunic that I got for £7 in the sale at New Look. I added a black t-shirt underneath, black leggings and a thin pale pink cardigan with my favourite purple suede shoes.









Pickle decided to have a picture taken as well, he is such a poser!!

Many people have said to me that they haven't followed their dream and trained to their dream job, but life is way too short to live it with a job you hate. At school teachers have said that you need a good idea of what you want to do as a career as I will be leaving school in May time. I've never really decided, I mean, I had ideas like Fashion Designer, Beauty Salon owner, but never one that has made me think "That's what I want to do". That is until I watched Call the Midwife on BBC. Since then I have decided to train and become a Midwife. The job would be sad at times, but also rewarding and very interesting. I've always been interested in going into the Medical field as I love Biology. Midwifery is a 3 year course at Uni, and by the time I'm 21/22, I would be a trained Midwife (at you service!!!) and I can't wait! I am soooo excited! I'm going to be studying A Levels in History, Biology, DT Food and English Literature which hopefully will be challenging  but not too hard that my brain explodes with frustration  With the high birth rate in the UK the demand had shot up for Midwives which is great for me, because I won't have too much trouble getting hired, unless all of a sudden Midwives started invading the country (fingers crossed that doesn't happen)

Have you followed your dream and found the job for you?

  18. You know Lauren, I totally love that you are 16 and have that attitude. Don't let people get you down when they say you can't do something. If you can imagine it, it's possible. When I was younger I used to be obsessed with A Baby Story on TLC, and for a while I wanted to be a OBGYN (I was much younger than you at the time though). I am not doing that now, but I am getting my MBA (which I've been wanting to do all of uni) and my ultimate dream is to open my own business that will allow me to live all over the world. Don't let people discourage your dreams. I know mine will come true and I know yours will too! Also, great outfit, you are so adorable! xo
