Today I had my interview with Bordelle. I got to see their showroom in their design/production studio…
Just imagine Beyonce’s bedroom, but 10 times more beautiful than that.
I want to live in there, it’s the most stunning place on earth.

This is the final design for the next part of my thigh sleeve. The theme of the sleeve is family, as my family is very important to me! The meaning and importance of this part is my ancestors. Some of my ancestors were Romany gypsy’s, therefore I want this on tattooed on my thigh. I cannot wait and my tattoo is booked for friday :)
How did this turn out in ink? would love to see
I’m fed up with this society. I am going to start my own.
The struggle for young people compared to our parents generation is disgusting.
I am a prime example of that. Yes my career path is going well, but it’s down to the simple survival where there is a crisis. I’m 21 years old, and a student. In terms of applying for jobs, that basically listing my self as disabled. I have applied for hundreds of jobs, and have not had one positive reply.
I have been without a job for some time now, I barely have enough money to eat, let alone go out and enjoy life. I am trying to be an adult and move on with my life and live away from the parents nest, which is becoming impossible.
The main reason people fob me off, is because I am a ‘student’ - I’m sorry but doesn’t that in itself show that I am committed to improving myself, in meeting goals and deadlines. That I am punctual, intelligent and very able. So why does this effect my right to work, to earn a living doing a ‘normal job’. Please tell me why exactly I am incapable of greeting customers with a smile, and helping with their shopping experience. If I can present myself to one of the biggest Creative Directors in the fashion industry„ I”m sure I can handle serving a few strangers perfectly well in a retail environment.
Don’t get me started with ‘We regret to inform you we have picked a more experienced candidate’.
- How the fuck do you expect us to get experience if no one will give us the chance to get it in the first place -
And when is there time to get experience, now the age of legal study has raised to 18, then expected to go straight into uni…
Where is the incentive for us youths to grow up, leave the nest, become self sufficient human beings? Instead we are being forced to live with our parents, fend off them untill we have left university. That is NOT acceptable. It in turn is effecting our parents generation, when they should be enjoying a quiet house, and leisurely activities, enjoying retirement, instead they have to extend their working & parenting years, and continue to provide for their young grown up children. It’s robbing them of their time and money aswell.
Yes okay, we get it, we are expected to get a great paid job once we have left uni. But hang on , we will be presented with around £50,000 in debt to clear before we can see a difference in our money situation, that’s if we can GET a graduate job, if they are available.
- I could go on and on -
Please Mr Cameron, can you explain in detail how this is working out for you? And where do you see our future as a generation?
