5 Tips To Make Your CV Stand Out

Writing a CV always takes a lot of time and can be one of the toughest challenges of job hunting. This is the case whether you are starting from scratch or updating your details to make it zing. As someone who writes a lot, I find that family and friends come to me when it comes to checking over these sorts of things, and for me, there are many parts of the CV that are being let down.

Recently, TMI Resourcing asked me all about how I make my CV zing, and so here are my 5 tips to make you CV stand out from the crowd...

Taking Our First Family Holiday Abroad


For years we dreamt of being able to take the children abroad. Each time we did, something came up to stop us being able to afford it - or J turned up which meant no travelling whilst he was too young to enjoy it.

Gaining Body Confidence With Hunkemöller


As someone who suffers really badly with my self-confidence, going on holiday to Spain and wearing a bikini whilst there, would have never normally have been on the agenda. Usually a swimsuit would have sufficed, and I'd have still been conscious about my body whilst wearing it. 

But over the past few month I have been working on my self-confidence loads. Going to the gym to help me lose weight, and firm up, eating better, and just trying to love myself for me.

Miele W1 WWG120 9KG 1600RPM Washing Machine Review


Having a large family means that we go through tons of loads in the washing machine each week. As soon as one load is washed and dried, another is going in to be washed. This means that we need a machine that is reliable and can cope with the amount of washing that I'll be throwing at it. 

I was lucky enough to receive the Miele W1 WWG120 washing machine from AO.com and it arrived the day after we got back from Spain so it had a very good workout in it's first few days with us - 11 loads in fact!

Dyson AM06 Cool Fan Review


Bank holiday weekend has been a gone, and since we got back from Spain, the weather has been scorching. It's been the perfect week full of gorgeous weather - I think we may have brought it back with us!

The day after we arrived back from our holiday, as we were starting to melt from the British sun, a fabulous Dyson Cool AM06 Fan arrived from AO.com and it was out of the box and ready to be used in no time at all.

When it comes to going abroad for the first time with a child, it's important to have a couple of things with you to make the transition easy. Playing outdoors, and in the pool all day, can come with it's own problems so having items ready to combat this is the perfect way to start a holiday.
