Because No Two Paths are the Same

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll already know that I’ve decided upon my new May mantra: “A flower does not think of competing to the flower next to it, it just blooms”.

Guest Post: Keep Calm and (Job) Search On

For those of you who are unaware, I’m happy to say that my blog has recently been accepted into the Her Campus Blogger Network. This has been an amazing opportunity for me, as I regularly converse with fellow bloggers about any questions that I have, sponsorships, reviews… but the best part of it all is making cool new friends from across the globe! I recently made a connection with Tiffany Khyla from Endless Bliss who was nice enough to have me write a guest post for her Motivated Mondays series!

If you haven’t checked it out yet, I highly recommend anyone, regardless of your age and industry, to check out my post about how to stay motivated during your job search. I’ve definitely needed to take my own advice lately, so hopefully you guys can benefit from my tricks as well.

Happy job hunting!

So if you’re like me and this weekend just sort of, got away from you, check out my tips for recovering from your lazy weekend.
