5 years of galsgoss πŸ’•βœ¨

Five fucking years. What the hell?!

I can’t believe I’ve been writing this blog and I am now referred to as galsgoss for the last five years of my life lol.

When I started this blog it was on a complete whim when I still worked in Tesco, serving my best looks in head to toe bakery whites – a fashion blog being the obvious next step, no?

I always had a shopping problem (I blame my mum) and knew I was destined to do something in this line of work so this was the first little feel of that I really had. I worked really hard on my blog, writing at least two posts a week. Back then it was more of a thing to write than it was to post a photo to Instagram every day. My insta was full of my mirror OOTDs from my days off. I maybe should have kept them mirror selfies up, I could have been the next smyth sisters πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ.

Fast forward on some time and I started to get involved in some events in Belfast. Belfast fashion week being the first and foremost. Thankfully for Cathy Martin I was able to join the fab community of Belfast bloggers and meet some of my best friends that I have today.

The following year I took a leap of faith and accepted a job in topshop. A step back in terms of money and experience but I knew this was a risk I had to take. Within 6 months I was signed off as a team leader and within the following year I accepted a temporary position as personal shopping assistant. Again a role I knew was a slight step back and it wasn’t an easy 9 months to complete let me tell you but I got on with it and knew it would all pay off.

The minute I joined topshop I knew i wanted to be a personal shopper, the minute I was in the department I knew this was what I was meant to be doing and as it was only a mat cover role i knew some changes were going to happen. I bit the bullet and expressed interest in moving to another city for the role. Low and behold (without yapping on any further) I interviewed for a shopper role in London and April 2019 I moved to the big smoke.

When I sat down to write this post I was thinking what do I really have to say, I defiantly haven’t became some Instagram superstar, I haven’t worked with 100 different brands or have the following I would like but when I read all of the above I realise i wouldn’t be where I am today without galsgoss. I’ve been so lucky that my career and hobby if you will, coincide so well. I have been to some amazing events, I have worked with some amazing brands and I have met some of the best people. I’ve created a YouTube channel, I’ve watched my Instagram develop slowly but surely and know that this year I am going to put my all into becoming as successful and happy as I can be.

So a massive thank you to everyone who made it to the end of this post lol and to everyone who has been with me since the Thursday ootds back in 2015, I am so grateful I still have the passion and support to work on my little platform.

Here’s to another 5 years.

Speak soon,

Lotsa love

Confessions of a 20 something year old

The start of a new year is always nice, you set new goals, you make big plans but before you know it you’re thinking about another birthday that’s looming.

Long gone are the days of being 5 or 6 and being so excited to pick a few of your friends to bring out for your birthday party. It’s now more of drowning your sorrows pretending you have your shit together kinda situ.

This April I will turn 27. Now I know I’m not about to get my pension – but when I was 17 I defiantly thought that this would be the age you kinda just knew what you were at in life?

*tumbleweed*

Well 17 year old Aisling, no you don’t.

Instead it’s the age were you have friends who are married, engaged, having babies, moving cities, countries and getting big “proper jobs”

And then the “me” of the group. Just unsure of what their life is lol.

What are you meant to be doing when you’re a nearly 27 year old? All of the above? Or the latter?

Is there really any set “rules“?

As much as I would love all of the above, my main fear for “growing up” is not being good enough. Everything I do in life I want to be great at.

So for me, if I find something that I’m amazing at I will work hard at it to become the best I can be. This is my main concern on obeying the “rules” at this age in life.

As for the rest of the adults things, I guess they will just follow….

Because, well it has too. πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

Speak soon,

Lotsa love
