The new year is in full swing and the sales are still on in most shops.  I have been busy getting some wardrobe essentials and I have been quite impressed with some of the sales in shops. The bargains are really good. It is worth having a look to see if anything on your shopping list/wish list is now on sale. I love buying items on half price or even less! The bigger the sale, the better. If you are after some fashion items this season, you may find these fashion and style tips very useful. It makes sense to go shopping with a list of what you do want, so you don’t end up with unplanned purchases that look good.

Classic shoes never go out of fashion

Apart from being comfortable, classic shoes are always in vogue. Which is why I am like going for classic footwear. They are stylish, comfy and always bang on trend. What is there not to like? If you are after some fashionable shoes this sales, go for classic shoes, they never go out of fashion.

 

Go for statement accessories

I love having statement accessories, they are always in style. Statement accessories can switch up any look for the better. This is the best time to add more statement accessories to your collection. Many are currently on sale as I type. I have seen a few I like in many high street shops, and I plan to add them to my accessories collection. I am particularly interested in necklaces and earrings. What sort of accessories do you like wearing?

 

Tartan pieces

Tartan is one print that never seems to go out of fashion. It is always trendy, which is why I am buying some Tartan pieces this season. I love the print so much and it is super easy to style. Are you a fan of the Tartan print?

 

Invest in a chic coat

Coats are great pieces to invest in especially if you live in a cold region. I like to have a couple of coats in different colours and styles, to create various looks. If there is one piece you need invest in this season, I would advise you go for a chic coat. They are always in style and super handy to have around. A woman can never have too many coats.

 

Add some colour to your wardrobe

It is so easy to end up wearing monochrome colours only especially at this time of the year. Adding some colour to your wardrobe will help wake it up a little and add some vibe to your look. I love going for colourful accessories and sweaters.

Skills needed

Finance based roles suit people that are quick and analytical thinkers; if you’re very logical and have fantastic problem-solving abilities, then finance based roles are likely to be something that you enjoy. Some people are naturally suited more to this kind of work because of the way their brains work, it’s not to say you can’t learn these skills but if you’re more of an abstract thinker then it might not be your ideal role. It’s not a bad thing at all, some roles require this kind of ‘out of the box’ thought processes, but finance isn’t one of them.

 

What kinds of jobs can you get?

Finance jobs range from corporate planning, to bank staff to accountancy, to investments. Yo could be working in an anti fraud department, or helping people get mortgages- and much more. You could be working with individuals, with companies or with banks so it’s impossible to generalise- finance careers are broad and varied. Have a think about what kind of role it is you want to gain within finance, as this might affect the process of working up to it. It might change the steps you need to take to get qualified and experienced if you have a specific route you’re looking to follow. 

 

What skills or education will you need?

There are lots of different degrees and types of work experience that could come in useful if you want to work in finance. For example, qualifications in mathematics, accountancy, economics and business will all be highly sought after. Otherwise, you could do a specific finance degree like an online MBA degree in finance. Take some time to think about what would best suit your interests, past experience and skills and the career you hope to gain going forward. 

 

Is a degree essential?

While a degree is desirable with most kinds of jobs, it’s not essential and there are other ways to get onto this career path. If you’re happy to work your way up from the bottom, you can start earning right away on a lower wage and build your way up. You don’t need much all that much knowledge to gain an entry-level position, as many companies will have their own training programs, however, basic qualifications in subjects like maths are something companies will be looking at. High performers are able to get ahead in finance careers quickly, so hard work and determination will pay off if you’re keen to do well.

 

 

Send Money Overseas with Paysend

I remember growing up in Nigeria and how difficult it was to send and receive money from country to country. We had to rely on middlemen and reference codes and numbers to get money across and from loved ones. It took a lot of time and multiple phone calls to get this done. I am glad this is no longer the case. It is now so simple to send and receive money abroad thanks to companies like Paysend. For those who have never heard of Paysend, it is a money transfer platform that allows you to send funds from card to card, or from bank account to bank account to over 70 countries. Headquartered in the UK, Paysend is authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). Paysend has a global 24/7 online support so help is always available.

Send Money Overseas with Paysend

Here is how my experience was with sending money to Nigeria with Paysend and why you should use this money transfer service –

It is secure

Some days ago, I decided to send money to Nigeria through Paysend. The whole process took me a few minutes and it was seamless. The first thing I did was to set up an account on the Paysend website with my details. Once that was done and my email address was verified, I could start sending money. To sign in, all you need to do is to type in your mobile phone number. Once that is done, you get a text with a security code to sign in. I love the sign in process as the security code bit gives me an extra piece of mind. The process feels a lot safer than just a regular password.

 

The rates are good

I sent money to Nigeria from my bank account to another bank account so there were no additional fees. However, if you are sending to a bank card, the fee is a flat £1, €1.50 or $2 . The process was very straightforward. All I had to do was type in the recipient bank details and the money was sent. The exchange rate was good as well. I compared it with other websites, and the rate I got from Paysend was the highest so their rates are quite competitive.

 

It is easy to use

Paysend is such an amazing money transfer service. I am glad it is now available for when I need to send money abroad. The fact that I can send money on their website or Paysend App on my iPhone makes it super convenient. This is one money transfer service I can see myself using over and over again. Paysend makes sending money as easy as ordering takeaway! The platform definitely takes the stress out of sending money to family and friends in Nigeria and beyond.
