My first week at my new job has come to an end, the excitement hasn't worn off yet... Sometimes when I'm at my desk my thoughts of how grateful I am to be there distract me. I still get nervous and am shy (my brain goes blank at the sight of beautiful people!), I hope I get over it soon... I wish I wasn't so shy.
On Wednesday I had an, "In-Store Experience" scheduled at the Mecca Comestica store in South Yarra as a part of my induction. The make-up artist there gave me a makeover! I now want to purchase everything that she put on my face.
So dramatic. So oriental.
I'm a beauty noob so it was educational and fun getting made-up, but I must admit I felt a little self conscious returning to the office. The girls back at support centre could tell straight away which products I had on my face, amazing.
I picked out a couple of items in the store, they happened to be colour coordinated too. I find Kit products to be perfect for my hands, I have super damaged (dry, itchy, cracking) hands and they already feel great after a week at work where they have their products at all sinks. I bought the hand balm to take with me where ever I go. I also got a bronzer from NARS, Laguna, apparently it's a bestseller. I also got a Frederick Malle candle to gift to a lecturer who I need to thank 3254354956 times for his support and providing me with so many opportunities (had to open it to suss out the packaging though)... But come to think of it, I don't know how to mail it out to him.
A handful of the other newbies and I went out for another nice lunch at Top Paddock with our buddies (they have a buddy system like in primary school!). I liked the trout more than the snapper I had earlier this week (both are delish).
The following day they were giving away a load of nail polish in the office so I took a couple. The purple matched my dress perfectly! I currently have the glitter layered on top, funky.
I had lunch on my own at a pie shop, had the cheese veggie pastie. Must start packing lunch!
I met up with Dean after work and this poster caught my eye so I dragged Dean on our bikes down to the Ellery sale. I did witness some gorgeous garments but they were still out of reach for me (price-wise), it was like $1000 pieces for $500.
We tried out Richmond Oysters (?) and it was a success! The service is great but their eye contact is intense, haha. We got so full, couldn't believe that everything we ordered was entree size!
Today the other new girls and I paid a visit to the company warehouse to get a tour and help out. HR organized lunch boxes from Top Paddock for us, so sweet! I'm so spoiled, I got fed Top Paddock three times this week!
It's been a good week indeed. Hope everyone enjoys their long weekend!
