C O S M O // my work experience week

'It's not what you know, it's who you know'
This phrase couldn't be more true! I managed to get myself a week of work experience at the elite magazine, Cosmopolitan, in the October half term. It was quite possibly the best week of my life! I was working alongside the features team. I spent my days making tea and coffee, as most workies will know that all too well. I also did some research for articles, a few transcriptions, and several other things for particular articles. And I believe I am going to be lucky enough to have my name mentioned alongside the very talented feature writers on a few of the articles I helped out with. It was an inspiring atmosphere to see how the magazine's issues are piece together. 
The location of the work experience added to the amazing week I had. It was located just off of a street I know all too well, Carnaby Street. I spent my lunch breaks browsing the shops and sipping on my Starbucks vanilla latte.
On one of my lunch breaks I was stopped by an ASOS Fashion Finder, and then a photographer from Glamour stopped me (the images will hopefully be in a Glamour issue soon!). The following day, I was again stopped by the ASOS Fashion Finder. I will post the photos and links below, along with some very rushed amateur shots of a couple of my outfits before I ran for my early morning train.

(To finish off my week on an extreme high, I have been asked to return to Cosmo in January for a couple of days, eeeeek!!!)
