Hello I'm Chloe Tomalin, but everyone calls me Clo. I'm a 2nd year Fashion Management and Marketing student from Birmingham (No, I don't have the accent.
) in London (No, I don't have that one either.
) with a thirst for visuals, sustainable fashion and strong black coffee.
A fully trained and qualified make up artist (MUA
), the original plan was to go into beauty marketing, that was before I discovered my passion for fashion retail, styling and visuals. I detoured and I'm now on track to become a visual merchandiser after graduation, with my dream job being in International store expansion. That's the goal.
I currently work for H&M in their underwear and accessories department. I love H&M and I love my job. (Inserts generic 'I do not represent the company sentence' here. Blah, blah, blah
When I'm not at uni or work I'm forever seeking out something new to try, visit and do. I never sit still, but when I do, I've got my head in a big book. When at home I can be found watching GIRLS, PLL or Big Bang Theory but there's nothing I relish more than cooking up a vegetarian storm in the kitchen or hosting the ultimate bake-off with my boyfriend, Adam.
Hello I'm Clo started 3 years ago in 2013 and turned into a place where I'd document my likes and dislikes and my journey into adulthood and I believe it's a true representation of my thoughts and feelings. I documented my struggles and treatment with skin disorders ezcema and acne and ran a series on skincare, which has been used for journalists and TV researchers on multiple projects and that is something I'm very proud of.
For now the focus is writing my 3rd year papers for university, moving to London with my boyfriend and progressing within H&M. The most accurate phrase for this year would be GIRL BOSS
So please join me on this crazy random journey that is my life; from exhibitions to travel and veggie food, Hello I'm Clo
is an eclectic mix of life as I live it, with no rose tinted Instagram filters in sight!
