LONDON FASHION WEEK A/W 2017








































My situation: september 2016





Hello Everybody welcome back on my blog. 
Today I'm back with another "my situation" article but this time is 2016 one. 
I have been during all this year quite (inactive) on my blog and I always say that "I'm really back this time " or I will be more active. I swear is one of my main goal this year I will tell you more about it in my article " Dear my year 2016-2017". 


In September 2015 I start my school in a particularly way, I was studying my last year of my baccalaureate by the internet. I have to say that was a pretty difficult year for me because I had to study on my own, to motivate myself ALL THE TIME. To September to November I was fine but after I work a bit less, I was tired and I was working during holiday time in a store which means I wasn't very concentrated on my school work. So I decided to stop my contract with the company because my education is much more important. Then to January to an end of April I try to catch up where I was late because my final exam was coming very soon and I had to do in the same time my short film done before the end of may, it's was a real challenge but I never give up. Arriving in May I had a month to be ready for my exam and I start being nervous. Thanks, Facebook I find a real help and find a new friend, we all support each other during this hard time. 

During the revision time, I realize that the course by internet wasn't useful at all and I have to learn everything in a very short time. If I can give an advice to some of you I will suggest don't do the "CNED" learn with books for each subject you will be more prepared and is really well explain ! 
Also, don't start your note a month before your exam makes them all along the year you will not waste time like I do and your revision will be easier and less stressful. If you need any advice to have effective revision let me know I will be very pleased to help you to give you my advice that works for me.

So I successfully got my exam with a sort of "mention" and I hopefully will go to university in September 2016 study Fashion Design in Cambridge in the same university as my sister. 
If you want to know my result in each subject please let me know and to know more about the short film you can find the link down below. 


Thanks for reading ♡




How i get inspired


Find an idea for a project can be sometimes a real problem, today I will let you know how I found for myself inspiration, I know that inspiration depends on the person you are, maybe this  article will help you.





Thanks to the genius person  who invented Pinterest which is my favorite website, I seriously spend my days on this website which I find it really cool and relaxing there are beautiful pictures with good quality for some is just a real pleasure spending time here look at the photography, create a board and find pins. Pinterest is the place where I find so much inspiration, the photography is very diverse and if you are working or looking for something especially you will definitely find pins might interest you. 






The other website I love to find inspiration is Vimeo I find always a video that boosts myself to create new things. Vimeo plays a big role when I create my short film for my baccalaureate, lot of director post their videos there and the quality is just insane. Youtube is also a place where I find inspiration I love watching the video of Claire Marshall, Jenn Im or Samantha Maria. Let me know in the comment down below if you have a favorite Youtuber.








As a little blogger, you probably guess that I love books about fashion, the collector one, the one with a beautiful and hard cover. You find famous photographer pictures and the information you need. 

Bloglovin' is the best place for a blogger to find the post, the blog or the blogger that interest you. Most of the time the picture from Bloglovin' are really good and very inspirational.



And to finish, of course, music. I love listening to my music on Spotify because the player is accessible everywhere on the laptop and also on your mobile. Create playlist are so much easier on Spotify you should download the app if you haven’t done yet.



I hope this article will help you to find inspiration.♡





working in a foreign country



Hey ! Aujourd'hui je vous retrouve pour un nouvel article , comment trouver un petit job dans un pays étranger. Je suis actuellement vendeuse chez Next, une boutique de prêt-à-porter britannique. Dans cet article je vais vous raconter comment j'ai procédé pour trouver un job.

En septembre j'ai commencé par imprimer mon CV en plusieurs exemplaires pour ensuite les distribué aux boutiques qui m'intéressaient et qui recrutaient. Nombre d'entre elles ont pris mon cv et l'ont transmis à leurs manager. Parmi ces entreprises, je suis allée chez Zara , qui m'ont aussitôt annoncé que j'avais un entretien le lendemain matin. Dans la soirée je me suis préparée et mis dans les conditions de l'entretien. Quand je suis arrivée là-bas c'était un entretien de groupe, cela me stressait encore plus car c'était mon tout premier entretien d'embauche, dans une langue étrangère. J'étais face à des individus qui avaient déjà de l'expérience. L'entretien s'est bien passé, mais était assez long. Zara a clôturé l'entretien en nous annonçant que nous serons prochainement rappelées pour nous dire ce qu'il en est. Je n'ai eu aucune nouvelle de l'entreprise, pas même un appel de leur part.










Pendant quelques temps je n'ai pas eu le moral et la motivation. J'ai donc envoyé mon cv en ligne à différentes boutiques. Un matin j'ai reçu un appel de l'entreprise Next. On a effectué un entretien téléphonique. J'étais stressé car j'avais peur de pas comprendre , de pas entendre correctement la question. L'ensemble des questions était beaucoup plus simple que celles posées par Zara. Les questions posées en général sont: votre date de naissance, vos disponibilités, pourquoi vous avez postulé pour ce poste ? Qu'est ce qui fait une bonne équipe ? Qu'est ce qui vous motive ? Parlez de vous , Quel est votre plus grand achèvement ? Une fois l'entretien terminé on m'a demandé d'être présente le mercredi pour "l'assessment" , c'est un test, pour savoir si vous correspondez au poste. Si vous arrivez à aller jusque là c'est bon signe. Durant l'assessment j'ai été 45 minutes devant le magasin, dire bonjour aux clients, ranger les rayons et les autres 45 minutes j'ai été en cabine. Une fois l'assessment terminé la manageuse m'a demandé si j'étais disponible le samedi pour l'induction. Avant de partir elle me donne une carte cadeau de £10 et £10 pour payer mon déplacement. Sur le chemin du retour je n'étais pas vraiment sûre d'être engagée, c'est quand je suis arrivée chez moi que j'ai lu l'a carte que j'ai réalisé que je l'étais. Le samedi, quand je suis arrivée nous étions une dizaine de personnes à assister à l'induction. Nous avons d'abord regardé une vidéo sur la sécurité et les normes du magasin, puis nous avons visité les locaux puis nous avons terminé avec une activité de recherche sur les produits du magasin.





Mon premier jour de boulot c'est bien passé, j'avais un peu de mal à tout comprendre mais mes collègues m'ont apporté beaucoup de soutien et d'aide. Au fil des semaines j'apprends de plus en plus sur mon poste de vendeuse et également à connaître mes collègues. Ce n'est pas parce que vous ne parlez pas couramment la langue, qu'il faut vous prendre pour une moins que rien,D'autres français qui travaillent dans un pays étranger ont rencontré le même souci. A part cette petite parenthèse , dans l'ensemble je suis très contente de travailler dans cette entreprise, ça me permet d'en connaître d'avantage sur l'industrie et le business de la mode et d'approfondir mon anglais.

[ENGLISH VERSION ]




Today i'm back with a new article, how find a job in a foreign country. I work currently at Next as sale consultant, Next is a British fashion and home shop. In this article i will told you how i find a job .
In September i start print my CV and i send it to company i like. Most of them take the CV and give it to their manager. I been also at Zara where they told me i have an interview the next morning. During the night i try to reply at some question that could be ask during the interview. When i arrived there it's was a group interview with other people who had already experience. I was quite stressed because it's was my first interview and in a foreign language. The interview has done well but was quite long. Zara told us they will contact us soon to say what going on. I never had a call from them.




During a time i wasn't motivated at all. I decided to send again cv but online to different company. One morning i had a call from Next company. I had an interview by phone. I was stressed because i was scared to don't understand and to don't heard her question. But most of the question was easier than the one from Zara. Most of the time the question asked are when are you born ? What motivated you? When are you available ? Talk about yourself ? What's your biggest achievement ? After the interview she asked me if i can be there the next wednesday for the assessment. Is a test to know if you are the kind of person they are looking for. If you arrived to the assessment is a good thing . During the assessment i been 45 minutes in front the store, say hello to the customer, tidy the shelves. And the other 45 minutes i been into the fitting room. When the assessment done the manager ask my to be there saturday for the induction. Before i leave the store she gave me £10 for my shifting and £10 discount in the shop. On the way back i don't realize if i was taken or not. Is only when i arrived at home, when i read the back of the card that i realize i was taken. The saturday we were 10 people at the induction, we watch video of safety and health , after that we visited the store and we finish with an activity.




My first shift was fine, i hardly understand everything, but my colleague help and support me. Week ago, i learn more and more about my job and about my colleague. Isn't because you don't speak fluent english that people have to treated you madly. I knew some french people who is in the same situation. But i really enjoy working for this company learning more about the fashion business and industry and also improve my english.
