The Jumper Dress Edit


So right now, I'm going a little bit crazy for the ol' jumper dress. Thrown on over a pair of knitted tights, this is surely the most effortless way to keep cosy and look chic at the same time, as the weather gets colder. It can be styled with heeled boots for a more sophisticated look, or dressed down with a chunky knit scarf and your trusty converse if you're looking for something more casual. Last night, I took to ASOS - as you do when yore sat in front of Monday night TV - and scrolled through the huge variety of styles that they have to offer online...

But undoubtably what is most important, they are just d e l i c i o u s...

Latergram: My Summer In Pictures


That beautiful time where sunny days seem to somehow magically role into one another is finally coming to a close, so I thought I would write up a brief résumé of what has been going on over the past few months. If you already follow me on Instagram, you may already have recognised that I haven't spent an ostensible amount of time at home over the summer and instead, have been doing my own little escapade of globe trotting. This year has had, and still holds, some big birthdays for my immediate family and so we decided to celebrate by making some kick-ass memories together in St Lucia. Note to self: encourage family decisions like this more often...

Little Miracles


Ever since the New Year hit, I've been much more concerned with 'going organic'. With a higher level of antioxidants, fewer pesticide residues and an overall less detrimental impact on our environment than the farming effects of some conventional foods, surely it's a no brainer. However, it is undoubtably a slightly more expensive lifestyle and indeed, one product under the organic umbrella that a student budget doesn't quite stretch to, is the soft drink. Then, last week I received an email from from the lovely 'Little Miracles' who undoubtably seem to have filled that so desired niche for an inexpensive, organic and delicious beverage...
