Update: My First Day at Mariposa

Hey everyone! I just wanted to let you know about a little update in my life and since it's a bit about fashion I thought it was relevant to post about here. I recently got a full-time job as the warehouse assistant at Mariposa Clothing and Soul Footwear in Takaka. Today was my first official day at work and it was awesome!

The best thing is the fact that I can go about doing my tasks, learning new things, working with wonderful people and really enjoying it all as the time flies by - and then I remember that I'm actually getting paid to do something that I love doing anyway!

I spend most of my time in the warehouse and occasionally cover in both of the shops. I get to do alot of walking between so I get out in the fresh air often. Oh and if you buy something from our online store then it will probably be packed and sent by me!

I'm so impressed by all of the processes that go on behind the scenes here, everything is so well organized. I also really love the ethical factors of this business. The owners actually go over to Bali and Thailand and meet the people who make the clothing and make sure it's good working conditions and everyone is paid properly. As you know one of my passions is ethical fashion so it's a huge plus to work somewhere with similar values.

It's truly fantastic to be a part of this amazing team of people. Thanks so much Kerryn and Steve for giving me this opportunity!
