CRCC Asia Internship in Shenzhen: Part 2. Welcome to SZOIL and Commuting 

(If you haven’t, check the first part of my latest blog series ‘CRCC Asia Internship in China’ before reading this one: https://findingmyselfinsideme.com/2017/09/25/crcc-asia-internship-in-shenzhen-preparation-arrival-and-induction/)

After a long three-day weekend of being ill and trying to recover, my first day of work as an intern in China came. I had to wake-up early and meet the rest of CRCC Asia interns in the lobby of Apartment One, to take a group picture before heading to our internships. Most, if not all, interns worked for companies which weren’t near our accommodation. Fortunately, for the first day of work, CRCC staff members took us by minivan to our workplaces. I was not the only CRCC intern working in SZOIL, my assigned company, there were three others CRCC participants coming with me: a student from a university in Northern England, a student from an American university, and a fellow Sussex student. I had only spoken briefly to two of them before the start of the internship, so I didn’t know much about any of them, but hoped for the best, as they would be my co-workers for a month.

Glowing & Grunge with Alternative Vibes

Yesterday I went to visit my mum and siblings in London. I always dress up to go to the big metropolitan, so this time it couldn’t be any different! Furthermore, natural hair season has just began for me and the weather was nice. So of course, I had to make a small photoshoot for my look. Hope you enjoy it!

Black, Pink & Mustard With Retro Influence!

Two weeks ago I went on a lunch date with one of my best friends in university. I liked the outfit I wore, it was simple but nice. So, here is a post dedicated to it!

I didn’t wear a lot of make-up, just eye mascara (Benefit Cosmetics) and a lip taint home mixture made of a pinkish lip balm (Natural Collection) and a pink sparkly lipstick (Lush). Apart from on my eyelashes, I also applied a bit of the eye mascara in my eyebrows and used wet cotton to blur it. It was the first time I ever “experimented” with make-up (both for my lips and brows), and I was quite happy with the results. The make-up matched wonderfully my accessories, a colourful sparkly necklace (bought in a shop in Singapore) and a pair of long small-bead earrings (People Tree). I was very pleased with how I looked. I’m mainly glad that my facial skin looked pretty well without anything added to it, other than moisturizer!

My main piece of clothing was a mustard tube dress (New Look), which I wore with black tights (H&M) and a pair of long black faux suede boots (Amazon UK). I loved how the dress looked on me, though it didn’t hide my chubbiness and even made me appear bigger than I am (still, it made me look extra cute in the last picture!).

Finally, here is the full outfit. Wore a long black coat (H&M) and a big black bag (H&M) with a black beret (Amazon UK). This is probably one of my favourite casual outfits to date, it is simple but stylish, with a touch of retro style.

To end this post, here are casual pictures of me in my university campus after coming back from the lunch date. If you enjoyed this post, please like it and leave your comments below, also share it if you wish!
