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
