Career Girl

I think it was Britney Spears who once said:
You wanna live fancy, live in a big mansion, party in France…You better work bitch.
Amen Britney! Although we love to party hard at the Dirthouse, during the week we work our tooshes off to climb that slippery ladder to success.
You know us as Queen L the feisty redhead, Queen B the pocket rocket with fantastic eye brows, Queen P the style savvy party girl and me the crude cunning linguist. However in between the hours of 9-5 (more like 8-7:30) we take on very different roles.
Ms L is the executive assistant to a property developing tycoon


Ms B, beauty editor of a popular online magazine.

Ms P, paralegal at an esteemed corporate law firm


And then there’s little old me who recently scored the gig as PR girl for one of Australia’s biggest lingerie brands

We are by no means at the top of our game in fact like most twenty somethings we are at the bottom of the food chain, working long hours in stuffy office buildings for minimum wage. Ok so maybe my office (pictured below) isn’t the worst working environment in the world.

Ew look at all that natural light! It actually dawned on me when I was taking this sneaky pic of my office while my superior was in the loo that our career lives are just as if not more news worthy than our personal lives.
As you know there’s more to it than just sex and the city, work and the city is an important factor in any chic urban girl’s life, not to mention it’s crucial for financing expensive paleo ingredients and cheeky Mynetsale purchases.
So from now on I’m going to feature more career related posts on the blog, but thats not to say that our professional lives are all work and no play…

Since we’re already quoting highly credible and awe-inspiring pop stars i’d like to conclude this post with a quote from Gaga:
I must admit following your dreams is really nerve racking shit, especially when you’ve just deferred university to take on a super demanding job. However, I know that turning my work life up a notch (or five) is exactly what I need right now to distract me from the man related problems that usually take up my mental capacity.
Good bye Mr A, B, C & D hello Ms Full-time Boss Lady 😉
