Happy Quantaversary to me!

Soo just a quick little post saying that it's been over 1 year since I started working at Mary Quant's London office! I haven't posted a tonne about it, mostly because all my creative energy has been going towards work so I've barely been active on my own social media...

 But yes I work at MQ at the moment, as day jobs go, it's pretty great!
Yes- Mary Quant is still active as a brand- mostly in Japan, but we do ship worldwide so if you're interested, please check out Mary Quant Europe's online store here:
(disclaimer- work haven't paid me to post this blog post but I do work at Mary Quant so...) 

I've still got a tonne to learn but I'm really enjoying it, plus I get staff discount on cosmetics yesss :D 

I hope you guys are doing ok! Stay safe gang!!

This post is a yearly tradition for me, I write a list of things I want to achieve in the next year. Unfortunately, due to *the current situation*, I didn't really get to tick off many things last year, but hey, here's hoping this year can be a bit better.
