| A Pair Of Jeans Big Enough For Two | 26/01/17 |

Finally, I have gotten round to creating a blog post using my new camera. For those interested, it is the Nikon Coolpix L340 Bridge Camera, and so far I'm loving it. It is definitely not the most professional camera developing high quality images, but for the price I paid and for the fact I am very much a beginner with photography, it will certainly suffice. 


As you know, I am incredibly comfort orientated, and typically avoid 'girly' looks that realistically are completely uncomfortable and leave you unable to even eat without being strangled by the waistline on your Topshop Joni jeans - lol. So, on a day-to-day basis, a pair of good jeans are vital. I have been loving straight leg/mom jeans recently, because they're incredibly comfortable and look so effortless with a chunky knit. Over the past few months I have been expanding my denim collection, and my most recent purchase are these ASOS mom style jeans.

These jeans are both amazing and a bit pants (pun very much intended). Firstly, they're a heavy denim, rather than stretchy, jegging-like which I love because it allows them to look a little bit more expensive, and consequently a little less prone to wear and tear. They are also exceedingly comfortable, as despite being a heavy denim they remain soft and don't dig into the skin in any way. However, these jeans are let down in certain aspects. Firstly, the waistline is incredibly inaccurate. Generally, I wear a W26 in jeans, which usually fits snugly but without fitting too tightly to the skin. But with these jeans, I could literally fit another person in there (a very small person, mind) because they're just far bigger than they are described as. Definitely shop a size smaller if you want to purchase these jeans!! Secondly, as baggy jeans are, these jeans are evidently loose around the leg. However unlike other mom/boyfriend/straight leg style jeans I own, these are loosely fitting in an unflattering way, I feel. They have very little shape to them, and are far baggier than a straight leg jean would be - not overly impressed. 

Despite the fact these jeans are not what I imagined, I do still like them and do still wear them, however they're more of an around-the-house go-to, rather than for out and about. 

The end of January generally marks the end of everyone's attempt of a New Year's resolution, if you haven't failed miserably already, and to those of you who have stuck to your resolutions, a huge well done. The New Year is a great way to discover new things, and throw yourself at a new beginning. So, I hope that all of you are enjoying 2017 so far, I certainly am. Keep doing whatever you're doing that's making this year even better than last, and don't forget that your dreams and goals can be reached one small step at a time. Your future is always going to start today, so don't let 'I'll do it tomorrow' be an excuse. 

So, that's all for today, I hope you have enjoyed reading this post. Please do let me know how you feel about the pictures in this post, as obviously they're using a camera instead of my phone so I'd love to know your thoughts. See you all next week for a new post!

Peace out x

Winter Coat Styling & The Most Important Aspects Of Life.

Evening everyone, I hope you are having a wonderful weekend so far and are keeping warm and cosy in this awfully miserable British weather. I also expect that you have seen the John Lewis Christmas Advert for this year, or else you're a slight scrooge and complete disappointment. Watch it here before you continue to read this blog post, if you haven't already indulged in the festivity because it is wildlife-filled and exceeds the word cute.

American politics aside, I am hopeful that you have all had a great week working hard, and are being rewarded with a relaxing weekend so far. There's nothing quite like a chilled out weekend after a busy week. Lush.

This week I thought I would go all guns blazing with a wintery blog post, as I have been desperately waiting to start wearing this gorgeous coat. Although, I'll be wearing from now until probably April before we see sunshine agai…

| I'm Feeling Tropical | 15/06/17 |


In less than a month I am tooting off to Spain for the festival Benicassim with George and some friends, so the next couple of posts are going to be pretty central to outfits relating to festival attire and what I've been wearing during my trip. So, this is the last 'normal' outfit I will be posting for a few weeks, yet to be honest, this is still relatively holiday appropriate. Hope you enjoy.

Shirt: ASOS
Shorts: ??not sure??
Trainers: ASOS
Earrings: ASOS

sorry about the awful brow

The focal point of this post is evidently this insane shirt by ASOS. When I first came across this shirt on the ASOS website, I absolutely fell in love with the back detailing of it, and also the sketchiness(?) that the print provides. I was also really digging the orange and pink vibes, alongside all the other colours proudly displayed on this piece. However, I must say when it arrived by the lovely DPD that knows me very well now (lol) it really didn't loo…

| Autumn Is On The Way | 12/09/17 |

I am in absolute shock at how quickly this year is passing us by, how is it already September? As we all know, September is that time of year where everyone goes back to school/college/uni and we begin the much anticipated warm up to hot chocolate, fluffy socks and CHRISTMAS. Fear not, don't run away, I'm not one of those crazy Christmas people who begins to prepare the following Christmas in January, its just something to think about...

Autumn is becoming apparent now, and leaves will soon be falling from the trees, boots and coats will be dusted off from last year, and we will all begin to say those forbidden words, 'I am so cold'. Alongside many, Autumn is one of my favourite times of year, particularly in terms of fashion. I am a huge fan of comfort over style (ironically) so Autumn gives me the perfect excuse to allow my baggy jumpers and checked shirts to pass as fashion pieces. So today, I thought I would share with you all my first composed AW17 look. Please e…
