STYLE: JACK WILLS PLAYSUIT

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that last week I went on to Majorca on holiday. Yes, it was very depressing coming back to rainy England last Sunday after a week of soaking up the sun! But I have 4 holiday related posts coming up over the next week so I feel like it's not quite over yet...

25 BEFORE 25



Last week was my 24th birthday and man am I starting to feel old! I was talking to one of my friends the other day and we were saying how old 24 actually sounds. You can no longer get away with calling yourself ‘early twenties’, you’re now ‘mid twenties’ (see the difference there?!). When I was a kid, I had a whole load of things that I wanted to achieve by the time I hit 25 and thinking back on it, most of those things I wouldn’t want now anyway. But there are some things I want to do before I’m 25 and I thought if I wrote them down I might actually get around to doing them. So here goes...

RECIPE: SWISS ROLL

RECIPE: SWISS ROLL

It’s been a while since I posted a recipe on the blog but with the return of the Great British Bake Off on BBC, my baking fever is higher than ever. Even to the point where we’ve started to do a mini GBBO in the office at work and here is my first creation - a classic swiss roll. I was quite surprised how well it actually went. I remember at school making a swiss roll that cracked as soon as I started to roll. But I think being patient and allowing the cake to cool properly paid off and I’m super chuffed with the result (even if  could have done with some more jam!).

STYLE: ASOS PLEATED MINI SKIRT

Today's OOTD comes from a recent trip to Frome Market and Kilver Court (mine and Seans favourite combination on the first Sunday of every month). We spend the morning tasting allll the food at the market, followed by a spot of shopping in the afternoon. Sean drools over cycling clothing from Rapha (yawn), whilst I look at handbags I'm never going to be able to afford in Mulberry. Ahh one day!

BEAUTY: FACE WIPES - FRIEND OR FOE?

Should We Use Face Wipes


Quick, easy and cheap, it's no wonder that face wipes are so popular. Up until recently I always used face wipes to remove my makeup but I've been seeing a lot of hate towards them and I couldn't understand it, so I thought I'd do a little research and find out why!

STYLE: RIVER ISLAND SWING DRESS

Sean and I had a date night last week and I thought I'd take the opportunity to take a few cheeky snaps of what I wore for the evening. I actually choose to wear this beautiful River Island swing dress which I bought via ASOS and was perfect for the occasion. The only downside is that the slip underneath the dress does ride up (#bigbootyproblems), meaning I spent half the night pulling it back down. But hey it's worth it. I paired the dress with an old River Island lace box clutch bag I often steal from my mum and I had photographed my beach waves advice post in the morning (see they do last all day!), so it was easy peasy to get ready.

CRAFT: DIY WIRE GEMSTONE RING

DIY WIRE GEMSTONE RING

In case you haven't realised, making jewellery is probably one of my favourite crafts. I could sit and stare at pretty beads for hours, just playing with them until I find the right combination for the perfect bracelet or necklace. So when the guys from Bead House contacted me asking if I would like some items to make a piece of jewellery with, I said yes straight away.
