I am a Ford Project Analyst | What do you do?


I’m a Beauty Blogger undercover as a Project Analyst for Ford, or is it the other way around?

Yes, I work for Ford motor company. It is an unbelievably complex cog in the chain of the motor industry and nearly a year into the job, I’m still learning every second! The job is stressful, intense and full of deadlines and targets! Every minute in my job requires my full attention and I need to be on top for all the time! Trying to explain my job role within the complex realm of processes with Ford leaves the listener baffled. I love my job, I do! I really do, it takes a lot out of me but I get so much in return. It took a lot of hard work, dedication and sleepless nights to get where I am today and it’s all been worth it.

What do you do? Are you still learning, at work or starting your own business? I’d love to know what you do apart from your blogs?

2) Do you dye it yourself or go to the salon?
Dye it myself, if I go to the salon I can guarantee I will be disappointed.

I try my hardest to try new styles, it’s difficult with my long hair at the moment because it doesn’t really have any style.

Every week!

For work its about 15-20 minutes, for a night out or something special its about an hour – I swear I really take my time!!!

8) What do you do first face or eyes?
If I am doing a dramatic smoky eye, then the eyes come first – just so that I can easily clean away any fall out. Normally its foundation first.
