Fashion // DIY Denim Jacket with Dylon

Last year and creeping into this year, the embroidered trend is big business and doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. I loved the embroidered denim jacket trend last year and the pastel jackets on the high street so I decided to DIY my own jacket! Luckily Dylon Fabric Dyes got in touch around the same time to see if I would be interested in a collaboration, I jumped at it! The perfect denim The tricky part was finding the perfect denim jacket.  I knew in my head what I wanted but finding it was a whole new issue! After a quick scour of the internet, read Ebay I decided to head to the charity shops in my town hoping to find the perfect one. Luckily I stumbled across this jacket on a vintage stall in the town market hall! Colour  I knew I was after a pink toned jacket so I used the shade powder pink . It was so easy to use – literally just dampen your item of clothing; and pop in the drum …

Fashion // Winter Pastels 

It’s been a while since I last posted an outfit post, but during a recent Sunday lunch trip, I managed to convince the boyo to take a couple of outfit snaps. January and February are the coldest months of them all so I’ve found myself reaching for my pink coat, over the knee boots and hat and scarf combo. I asked Darren to take these pictures during a trip into Liverpool on the weekend as we had a lunch reservation booked. Expect another post later in the week about that but I wanted to share these few snaps. I picked this coat up from the M&S sale a few weeks ago as it was a bargain at half price, considering it’s still very much ‘on trend’ and such fab quality. I’m still loving my huge blanket scarf from Primark that’s seen me through the last few winters and these over the knee boots are still a relatively new purchase, that I got from Just Fab in October/Nov time after spotting them on Instagram! It was …

OOTD // How I Style Midi Dresses

Another day, another outfit post. I think I’m doing quite well in attempting to mould my boyfriend into an ‘Instagram Husband’ as he snapped these pictures on Sunday afternoon in the garden. However please forgive the fact I’ve got my hair up – I was *mildly* hungover when these were taken…    The weather was absolutely gorgeous so I decided to throw on this really, really old midi dress. I love the shape and it’s really lightweight making it perfect for work or just running errands – like we did on Sunday!  Midi dress – River Island Kimono – Primark Necklace – EBay Lace up sandals – Missguided

Only need the light when its burning low

For as long as I can remember I’ve wanted one of the Cambridge Satchel Company bags, but I just couldn’t commit so much money on a single purchase and had no clue what colour to choose. I invested in a Zatchels bag earlier this year, during their 50% off birthday sale, but recently Cambridge Company Satchels have been sneaking into my ASOS saved items more and more. And when I saw this beauty on ASOS for £115, I knew it had to mine . Berry is my favourite colour this season and the satchel will match my fedora and ankle boots perfectly- I can’t wait to give it its first proper outing this weekend. But, before that I just couldn’t resist taking a couple of photos. The leather is so soft and it is fantastic size, despite it being the smaller size at 11″. In a word- its perfect.

Weekend Round Up

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, this weekend was my turn to cook in my friends and I versions of ‘Come dine with me’. Being the only one who still lives at home, and in a bid to stop my Ma wondering through to get a brew, my turn was based at my best friends house. I do like to cook and quite regularly make a home cooked meal, but I’ve never cooked for more than 3 people, so 5 was a challenge. How the key was preparation and I decided to stick to what I know- Mexican! The challenge was to a three course meal, so I opted to do a nachos (always a winner), home-made enchiladas which turned out quite well and fruit and chocolate sundaes for desert. I did mean to photograph the cooking process of the enchiladas but manning pans and chopping veg, took priority so these are the couple of snaps I took! Ruth’s Mexican Menu! Nachos loaded with guac, grated cheese and sour cream to start Chicken and bean …
