February buys – part 2

I had a small shopping spree last Sunday, so I have a few more products to introduce. Surprisingly enough, most are L’Oréal – I’ve got a mask, compact foundation and a big bottle of micellar water. I always end up with more than I need when I go to Remedium.

I also placed a second Avon order. We have an Avon representative at the office, so I get to browse the catalogue on a regular basis and consequently order often. The quality may be on par with cheap Polish brands, but at least a it’s (very) affordable. I paid only 10,- leva (€5,-) for the whole order, so my expectations are pretty low.

February buys – part 1

This is my first post about new acquisitions. I would like to share a short overview of my new buys from the past month. I ordered some Avon ‘True Colour’ products in the beginning of February and scored a Bourjois Healthy Mix concealer and Vitamin serum foundation from Lily. Unfortunately, I already used up my sheet mask from DM, so this one won’t get a photo. The Alverde eyeshadow base and the Douglas peel off nail polish base are in though.

Gym bag essentials

As a regular gym rat, my gym bag always has a set of essentials. I don’t like leaving the gym all sweaty, so I usually shower and dress up in street clothes before I leave. I often wash my hair as well. If I am going out afterwards, I also fix up my make-up. This is a short review of my favourite gym bag products: Aussie Miracle Moisture shampoo, a few shower gels and the Trevor Sorbie heat protection and straightening spray.

L’Oréal Nude Magique Cushion Foundation 06 review

I bought the cushion foundation by L’Oréal back in December from one duty free in Cyprus, but I’ve been waiting to finish up one of my current fdt before I open it. Well, my curiosity got the better of me and I finally broke the seal this week. I understand these may be coming to Bulgaria, so I wanted to give it a try before the official release and get ready to stock up if I like the cushion.

Career 101: CV for BPO

In the beginning of March I will hit my 3rd anniversary in Bulgaria. What brought me here was a job, so I think it would be appropriate to write a few words about career orientation and applying for jobs over here. This post is the planned as the first of a series, so don’t expect me to cover all topics.

Please note I will focus primary on the BPO (‘business process outsourcing’) sector, as this is the area where I am most experienced. BPO includes a lot of processes, but the most popular over here tend to relate to customer care and backoffice/financial administration. Just think of call centers and shared services centers.Of course, I will try to give some general directions applicable to other sectors as well. Keep in mind the most important CV-trick is to tailor your CV to the needs of the audience.

New beginnings

I have started over and over with this blog. After taking 2016 off, I’m ready for a new beginning. I plan to make 2017 my year and writing is one of the things I want to focus on.

Who am I? I have legal background, more qualifications than most people would need and currently work as a Benelux representative for a major technology company. I’m also targeted on both revenue and call stats, if you need a pointer how low on the totem pole I actually am. Being born in the 90s, this may not be particularly surprising.

I hit 26 a month ago, my personal life is a bit of a mess, I have a shopping problem and I’m addicted to my Moto G. I’ve lived in a few European countries, I speak about 5 languages,  and I’m currently based in Sofia, Bulgaria. I travel monthly, love discovering new places and exploring the local streets.

You will hear more about all of this in the upcoming posts. All older posts are now archived.
