My name is Olivia Agar and I’m a second year Marketing student at Nottingham Trent University and I am looking for an industrial placement in the Health and Beauty industry, commencing summer 2017.

I have 11 GCSE’s all A* to C including English and Maths.

I have A Levels in Business and Economics (B), Psychology (B), Product Design (C) and an AS Level in English Literature (D).

My most recent achievements are achieving two Firsts and one 2:1 on my first three modules of second year.

So far in second year I have studied modules in: Buyer Behaviour, Managing in Marketing and Research for Marketing.  I am now studying modules in Digital Essentials, Delivering Customer Value and Marketing Communications. I should finish this year with an additional certificate in digital marketing and have started my journey on the way to being a Chartered Marketer.

  • I am a creative individual, hopefully this blog is evidence of that. I also started my own soap company, Utterly Bubbles, at the age of 14. I designed all the products and packaging, I sourced the raw materials, manufactured the products and sold them at local craft fairs. I also branched out into bath bombs, lip balms, lip srubs and had a go at trying to create a vegan ‘shower jelly’.
  • I am also fiercely ambitious. If I want something I’m not going to give up on it. Since I was a kid I always knew I wanted to be a business woman and that’s something I’ve never given up on, success is a massive motivator for me. Evidence of this would be on New Year’s Day this year I signed up to run a 10K at the end of May, to give you some perspective I am a woman who wouldn’t even run for a bus but I am determined to do that 10K and cross the finish line with a good time. I now train at the gym multiple times a week because I’m not prepared to let myself down and be called a failure.
  • I am very committed. This blog has just celebrated its first birthday, and I intend it to celebrate many more, at first my posts weren’t that frequent but for the last 6 months I’ve delivered every week and I have no intention of stopping anytime soon. It’s a joy to write every week and I feel so proud when friends or other people at university as me for makeup advice or say ‘oh I read that post on…’
  • I love working in groups. I am a ‘people-person’, I love discussing ideas with others and working together to develop a solution to a problem. It can sometimes be tough if there are conflicting opinions but some of the best ideas come from groups of people who genuinely care about a project and are willing to argue their case.

My blog has given me a wide knowledge of cosmetics and the beauty industry, I’ve also written about serious topics close to my heart such as microbeads or my own personal battle with hairloss.

When I’m not studying or writing my blog you’ll find me watching makeup tutorials/reviews on YouTube, shooting at my university’s archery club, baking blue cakes or going on nights out in wacky fancy dress.
