The Secret PA : Day 1099

Published on: 21 Mar 2014

For those of you who missed my last post, Pixie Geldof’s new fringe, Miranda Kerr’s new sprinkler video and Kate Hudson’s new LBD collection aren’t the only new things this week. I started a new job this week in Fashion, and it’s in the West End only minutes from my old job and Whiz Girl’s new job. The best part is, I love it. I’m glad I temped in a different industry though as while it gave me an insight into working as a PA in Finance it also made me realise what I really wanted out of my career and that it just wasn’t the right fit for me, even if the pay incrementally increased the investment in my ‘Fun Fund’ (for shoes, shows and seaside holidays).


The first day at this new job was in stark contrast to my first day working with Scarlet and Pepper. Instead of feeling like I’d fallen down a rabbit hole after several tequila shots I felt like I’d had a mimosa followed by an espresso shot and was surfing into paradise. Ok, that’s a bit over the top but I was definitely happy and nervous in a good way, with far more composure than I had three years ago. And I was anxious about making a good impression and fitting in, instead of worrying about a ladder in my tights, a potential lunchbox spill in my handbag and good locks gone wild. 

Anyway, coming back to this job, it’s been hectic for a first week (HR pretty much sprinted me through the induction!) but they had a post work Pimm’s party as it was sunny, which was nice as it gave me a chance to meet others on the floor which wasn’t really possible at work given the pace of things. It’s kind of like working for Scarlet and Pepper in some ways, with the constant flurry of activity. I’m back to the Buzz …. I’ve returned from the world of Suits and Sarcasm and it’s great.

What are the new bosses like? That’s another post in itself but I’ll save that for next week.

Have a fab weekend xx 

P.s. I can’t believe I’m going to a VIP event with the boss. It’s like I’m living a piece of the script from The Devil wears Prada. Not that I’m uber excited or anything..I’m wearing my blasé face to it ;)
