Dream Catcher

When you take a break from one of your greatest passions, it will always find its way back to you.

I’ve had one of the greatest years of my life, full of life-changing moments which I will treasure forever, but it has not all been easy, and I have had to face up to some very tough realities. Sometimes I wonder if it’s possible to have it all?

When I wrote my last blog post I had just got a heart-breaking rejection from Cath Kidston, a job which I so desperately hoped and dreamed of for many years, but a job that sadly, was not meant to be mine.

Rejection is such a difficult path to go down, and one that drains the part of you that hopes, wishes and still believes. I stand by the thought that whatever life throws at you, however many times you get knocked down, you have to find the strength to carry on. I’ve taken a little time away to work towards a brighter future, and I hope this marks the start of a new chapter.

I’ve really missed you.



  1. I'm delighted to have you back, Alice! I've always believed that things always happen for a reason and although you were devastated by not getting the CK job something will happen soon which will help you to see why it wasn't to be.
    Sending you loads of love, Vix xxx

  2. Nice to see you back, missed your posts! Glad you are feeling a little more positive too :) xx

  3. I can really identify with this... I really do believe that when things go completely wrong it can be an opportunity to move forward in a totally different way. Good luck :)


  4. Yey you having you back. I know what you mean about job rejection. Happening so often to me lately that i've been on the edge of just not bothering and giving up completely.

    Good luck xx

  5. So happy to see you back Alice! I've missed you :) xxx

  6. Lovely to have you back Alice. I too have had a year of rejection on the job front, I am beginning to see however that these rejections are helping me to take stock and think what it is I Really do want. A few of the jobs I've been rejected for have been what I have thought would be "dream" jobs, but maybe they were not meant to be because the reality would have been different? I don't know, but I continue to take stock and hopefully move to a more fulfilling stage in my life. Hopefully this will also be true for you too. Take care. Linda xxx

  7. Hey Alice, everyone had been missing your blog posts so much. I just know that something great is waiting for you soon. Hoping you're feeling a little brighter each day x

  8. So happy when I saw your post on my blog feed, welcome back! Hope you are feeling better :) xx

  9. Happy to have you back :) something bigger and betetr will be along soon xx

  10. Oh I'm so pleased you're back Alice. I know I've been terrible at commenting recently but I have still been reading and I've missed you!

    Sad to hear about the CK job but there's nothing to say another similar opportunity won't come up very soon. Keep trying - I know you'll get what you deserve :)

  11. I understand the wondering if you really can have it all. Nobody can without neglecting some area of their life. As a mom I struggle with this daily, if I do it all I'm not doing it all to the best of my ability but if I do a few things I can do them better. Best wishes for that brighter future. =)
