Witching hour

Missguided Grunge Outfit

Recently I became a huge advocate of getting my nails did, by getting my nails did what I actually mean is buying a pack of Elegant Touch nails for like £6 and replacing them with new ones every two weeks or so. When I was in Boots this weekend, I saw the tackiest set of Henry Holland collab nails that were being discounted slightly longer and pointer than I'd usually wear like seriously I legit feel like I have claws and basically I can't type and this whole post I guess is gonna take me 483832 years to write. As equally impractical as they are pretty. 

~ Traditional tangent outta the way ~ 

So grunge is pretty cool yeah? You feeling it too? well, you should be, there's something so aesthetically pleasing about the whole grunge/witchy vibe. Can I use aesthetically there? Does it work? whateves, it's staying grammar YOLO or something. 

Unsurprising I was browsing through the sales again and unsurprisingly I bought something but its hard not to when Missguided have these on point sales. They have been filling the Ark shaped hole that's been left in my heart and I really really couldn't leave this witchy symbol print skirt thing on the site cos well look at it. I was a little hesitant as its so crisp and white and well for me that's just a disaster waiting to happen. All the spillages and stains because I am 4. AND the best part is that it was only £3 and oh so flattering! I  also managed to grap this sheer/mesh top in the sale which I may add is the softest thing ever and as felt they would make the perfect summer grunge outfit I had been after for a while. Everyone needs a mesh top that has a pom pom frame that goes around your boobs fact.

If only I could pull off those floppy fadora hats and well I'd be sorted.

27.07.2016


I kinda wanted to stop doing the thing where I prattle on for a good paragraph in my blog posts before I get to the actual point of why I'm writing one up in the first place apparently that ain't happening anytime soon. I've had so much go on in actual life I haven't had the mental capacity to actually update my poor old neglected blog. I feel like the days where I used to update at least 3 times a week are well gone after I've tried so hard to bring that blogging practice back.

A lil roundup/ insight into what's been going on for you all.

I lost my marketing job a few weeks ago. I was gutted and basically, I have spent every spare bit of my time looking for a new marketing role. I got offered one yesterday and as of the 15th of August I'll be doing something I love again but this time as a marketing executive. Go me. 

Alongside, all the job hunting and interview prepping I've been training for a 10K and honestly I think I've burnt myself out a bit. My body hurts and I am physically tired. Mix that with and unhealthy mindset of how I perceive my body its kinda taken its toll on me mentally and physically. I struggled with my eating or not so much of it a few years back and well after getting help, I no longer do the bad things I used to do but sometimes its just so damn hard to shake that monkey off you shoulder making you feel so incredibly guilty for eating, this is what's happening right now. It's something I spend a lot of my energy daily trying not to be bothered about. Some days I find it easy to ignore some days it's all consuming. This is the first time I've addressed this ever publicly, I've always been so private about it but the words have just seemed to come out. For now, my connection with food and how I feel about it is something I'm kinda stuck with at the moment. It comes in fits and starts, sometimes I'm ok with it, sometimes not so much. 

However, I do like exercise and I do think it is good for my mental well being, I'm just tired right now and just want to hit pause on everything. 

I was going to go into an #OOTD type post, this wasn't at all the intended post theme at all, I just kinda got word vomit and well here we are.

25 Facts About Jess



Soooooooo my recent Twitter poll tells me you lovely lot want 25 facts about me [if you voted the witchy OOTD soz, that'll be up next, pinky swear] . That's cool that's cool, it's nice to break up all the #OOTD's with something a lil different. I was kinda looking forward to writing this up, did that sound narcissistic? I hope it didn't sound narcissistic? I realised it's actually really hard to think up of 25 loosely interesting facts that will keep ya'll reading and not skimming trough and giving up at fact 14 ahem. . . .

1) I am still terrified of the dark at 26. Still.

2) I'm kind of a hippie, in the sense that I believe people have auras, karma and Posi vibes

3) I am a veggie and it's hands down the best decisions I've ever made, save the animals!

4) I'm really quite scared of getting old, like it proper irks me man

5) I am a huge Paramore fangirl, like I proper love them, Yano? I also have a huge massive girl crush on Hayley Willaims, like that girl is all kinds of goals. I met her when I was 17 and I thought she was gonna flash me, turned out she just wanted to show me the NFG shirt she had on that matched the patch on my backpack

6) My best Friend Charlotte means the entire world to me. I wish her nothing but happiness, she deserves a bloody medal for putting up with me!

7) Quentin Tarantino is bae. I'm lowkey [fulll on] obsessed with him, his films or anything he has had a hand in. Marry me [sorry James]

8) Contradictive of the above point. I.hate.films I just don't think I have the attention span, I am a four-year-old. It makes James really mad cos he loves them and I'm just like mehhhhh. Unless it's a Ghibli or Japanese.

9) I really really really really live Vivienne Westwood, she's the only designer I keep tabs on, shame my bank balance can't

10) I love art, I have done since I was a child and able to hold a pencil. Serialism if probably my favourite movement closely followed by cubism. Salvador Dali was a genius, I'd like to take a peek into that crazy mind

11) I love to travel, I went away for a year when I was 19 and visited some incredible places including America, Austrailia, Africa, Hawaii and Thailand.

12) Despite my love for travel I really freaking hate planes, essentially my trip to Japan last year consisted of me having a breakdown for 14 hours with all the tears and none of the sleep

13) I love my cat, she brings me endless happiness. I always make sure I give her the love, respect, and life she deserves. I don't ''own'' her, she is a part of my family that lives along side me. She also has really long hair that grows out of her ears and Grinch-Esque toes


~ lol ~

14) My mind and imagination are so odd. It's probably why I'm scared of the dark still and why I hate planes. It likes to get a bit carried away

15) I got my first tattoo when I was 16 [lol]

16) I always lose my debit card, I *think* I'm onto my 9th one this year?

17) I found out I was dyslexic when I was 9, I really really really can't spell, DON'T even get me started on there, their and they're

18) I find the ocean fascinating

19) I like learning about really gruesome things in history, like medieval torture, disease, basically how gross humans lived back when. I also really love ancient history and was in love with the Egyptians and their interpretations of the afterlife etc

20) I really like photography [although I'm not that great, probs amateur at best] and cameras, the older the better. I have a shelf full of really old cameras

21) I think feet are really really gross and hate getting mine out in public hahaa

22) I'm really really shy, then once I get to know people I never shut the fudge up

23) I worry too much

24) I love to run, I'm completing my first ever 10K race in August and I'm terrified I'm going to fail

25) I am consumed by all things Japanese


You did it! You made it well done. Now I'm off to go watch Ocean waves and collapse on my bed with my cat and my boy. Until next time, peace x

Why I’m no longer afraid of culottes

River Island Rust Culottes

I've well and truly fallen onto the culottes band wagon head first. Which is surprising as I've had a mild [huge] phobia of them since I was about 6 and swore never ever again. Ever.

Basically, when I used to go to Brownies, part of my uniform were these god awful culotte things in a shade that can only be described as poo brown that were itchy as shit and as a kid and having to wear them every Tuesday night for a couple of hours traumatised me to no end so much so I've now brought that into adulthood. Whenever I've seen them hung up in shops or whilst browsing sites online I'd shudder and think all the nopes.

I was on very looking for the perfect dungarees [which I still haven't found, black denim not skinny plz if you wanna send links my way] when these babies popped up. I didn't instantly hate them and have flashbacks to my youth, and I actually quite liked them and I really liked the colour and I was also mad I hadn't found the dungarees I wanted originally so I was all like fuck it and added them to my cart quicker than I could say ''stop Jess you have a problemmmm'' I don't [I do]

I'm so happy I did, they well and truly saved my butt this weekend. Not only was I all kinds of in love with them as soon as I had put them on, I was having an existential crisis trying to figure out just exactly what the hell I was going to wear to my best friends hen do. I had ordered a million and one dresses and sent them all back, raided my wardrobe and hated everything I put on - nothing felt ''right'' I looked over at them and was like can I really wear culottes to a hen do and well you can and it also turns out they can make you feel sassy as hell. Paired with my Topshop cami I picked up last year I think I've just created my fave go to summer [or what's left of it] outfit. side note, I *had* put on my strappy black and gold Zara heels that I love oh so much but feel like they murder my feet. No jokes, like I wore them to my Christmas do and I swear I couldn't feel my feet for about 6 months after pretty but equals death to feet.

LYDC Holiday Collection

Untitled #7


Holiday season is well and truly in full swing [ahem] well sporadically from all this rain we seem to be dealing with. I don't know about you guys but my hairs not coping well, remember that friends episode where Monica's hair went all crazy big and she tamed it with those questionable cornrows complete with shells? Well, that's me at the moment, I'm ready for the shells.

With the holiday season comes holiday fashion ready to gear us all up for the sunny spells, whether you're escaping Britain's rain in exchange for a tropical destination or all the festivals. I myself won't be attending any festival this year, I weep BUT I am running off to Paris next month and after the past few weeks, I've had in ready for a city break.

I, of course, need to get myself a new LYDC lovely from their holiday collection because well they are my baes and they are always so on point. 

As per it was tricky business to try and whittle down from the fab fruity collection to select the perfect holiday bae and well because I have problems I chose two. Whoops. For me, I'm all about the novelty so I of course for my first option I went for something of that nature. LYDC are novelty bag connoisseurs and always seem to get their collections right every time. 

The first bag that caught my attention was the super cool watermelon slice, why? Well, guys, have you seen it!? Hilariously perfect for holidaying and well bringing all kinds of fun elements any outfit I team it with. PLUS it's got that erratic dancing enabling strap that I just gotta have. Remember that snap hat takes over I also did in March? It's the same bag LYDC gifted to the lovely Grace Neutral that I met hand poked the soot sprites on my leg. Verdict: watermelon clutch = holiday winner.

My next pick is great for anyone wanting to get their tourist but remains super stylish. No socks and sandals here. [even though I am quite partial to that . . . . ] I have this version in pink, but you know I love it so much I'd get it in this monochrome version with a yellow twist too. Plus the stripes do give off some Parisian vibes.

What would you choose from the holiday collection? If you click this link you can have a cheeky look and if Yano you fancy anything here's 10% off using "Jess10" cos you totes deserve a holiday treat!
