The Comfiest Winter Coat You Need This Year

This year, I was one of those people who managed to buy their Winter coat nice and early and believe me, I am taking full comfort in knowing that when the temperatures truly drop (which is round about… now), myself and my new coat, are fully prepared. For me, there was only one style of coat I was going for this year… the Teddy Bear Coat. The truly comfiest, softest coat that will have you reaching out wanting to stroke every one you see. But, truthfully, the best thing about a Teddy Bear coat is that it encompasses all of the Winter coat needs: warmth, length and style. Normally I struggle to find the perfect coat that ticks all three boxes, but the Teddy Bear coat truly does and more.

Why I’m ok with not having it all together

Why I’m ok with not having it …

Alongside running this blog, I work part-time in a local pub. The one thing everyone asks me in that pub is ‘what are you going to do now you’ve got your degree?’ And minus a few people, most people don’t understand why a) I’m working in a pub in the first place b) I haven’t got a full-time fancy job in London yet, my own flat and my own independence… three months after receiving my degree. Most of the time, this chat doesn’t bother me, I’m well aware that they are simply making small talk with someone they know nothing about apart from going to university. But recently, I’ve had more people tell me the ‘horrors’ of getting degrees and you may not believe a number of times I’ve been told ‘it’s so hard getting a job with a degree now’ ‘my sisters cousins friend got a degree years ago and still hasn’t got a job’, ‘oooh, bet your in loads of debt now!’, they say with a grin on their face. Most of the time I just laugh and agree, because I’m sure most of is true but I can’t quite fight the niggling thought in my mind of… ‘these people don’t think I have together’. Do these people think I’m wasting my time? Wasting my degree?

Night-To-Night with PrettyLittleThing x Olivia Culpo

Girls never need an excuse to dress up, right? So you can imagine the excitement I felt when an email landed in my inbox asking if I would like to try some of the items from the Olivia Culpo range at PrettyLittleThing… how could I say no?! PrettyLittleThing have been on my radar for a little while, I forever see people sporting their stuff over on Instagram and I regularly find myself scrolling through the ‘new in’ section like its compulsory.

The Autumn Wardrobe Wish List

As I type this, it’s currently pouring down outside, the wind and rain are the only sounds I can hear and the heating is on. Autumn is well and truly on its way. Of course, grey and rainy days only lead me to do one thing… a bit of shopping. Well, when you can’t go outside and walk around a shopping centre without getting rained on, a bit of online browsing in your PJ’s is definitely the next best thing!

What I love About Autumn

What I love About Autumn

Ok, ok, I know…. I’m slightly early to the whole ‘Autumn’ thing but honestly, ever since our two-week Summer ended, I have been secretly (well, not so secretly if you follow me on Twitter) wishing for Autumn to come its merry way. It almost seems a blogger requirement to adore Autumn but for as long as I can remember I have always craved for chilly air, short days and nights surrounded by blankets and fairy lights. I have fond memories of walking around London on beautiful grey days (yes I actually like cloudy days), early morning walks in the Autumn sunshine and cuddling up around the fire with Harry Potter on in the background whilst it rains outside.

Walking Away From What You Don’t Need Anymore

Walking Away From What You Don’t Need …

It has taken me years to learn that ultimately, happiness comes from you. You are the creator, the motivator and the teacher of it. My mother always tells me and has always told me throughout my years, that surround yourself with positive things and positive people and it will quite literally breed positivity.
