That Camel Coat Hype


New Look Camel Coat

Aww Jess. Why do you do it? Why do you think you can handle your drink? This, my friends, is the face of someone that sank one too many pints on a night out and was feeling a little sorry for themselves. In a bid to not totally waste my Sunday in bed, I made myself get up, shower and have a walk around the town I live in and perhaps even partake in a blog shot. [After the above activities were done I did, however, take myself off swiftly back to bed]. Nice effort though right?

So the camel coat, I think pretty much nearly everyone may own a camel coat or dream of owning one and I can kinda see why. I half-heartedly searched for one last year and couldn't find one I really liked so abandoned the operation. However, this beauty I picked up in New Look was a game changer. Lightweight and smart making it perfect for work but also versatile enough to also style with  a tee and trainers as I've done so here. Mainly cos yano I was hungover to shit and needed all the comfort. The best part of this all? The coat only cost me £25 as I had a 30% discount code to use.

The leggings are a favourite of mine this time of year as they're so fricking thick and suck in all the parts I hate [looking at you hips], I practically wore them to death which is showing as some of the leopard print detailing has started to rub away and it's making me all kinds of sad. I've tried to find a replacement pair on eBay with no luck so until then it's patchy pants. The T-shirt I love mainly because of the length and you can never really have too many slogan Tee's can you?

This Weekend and an Ode to my Best Friend



Before we start I have a little PSA: 

Guess which dumb ass lost her camera charger and is unable to take any pictures for her blog this week?

Aye it's me.

I bought a new charger and everything and the bloody thing doesn't even work so things are gonna be a lil quite round here until I re-order a new one which bums me out as I've got a ton of stuff I wanna share and super exciting collabs.

I've got a really packed few weeks coming so I was thinking of dabbling in weekly vlogging even though I freaking hate hate hate video editing mainly cos I don’t know what the frig I’m doing but I’ve decided to try and concur it and make it my bitch. Hopefully.

This weekend has been great, I got to get my make up done all profesh and shit and stay in a hotel in Leeds, I got to spend time with my oldest friends celebrating my best friends wedding. I'm so unbelievably proud of her. She went to San Francisco with her now husband and got married, just the pair of them they went off and did their own thing, they did it their way and I couldn’t be more thrilled for them. We spent the evening laughing, creating memories, drinking way too much prosecco [I’ve got the hang over to prove it] and throwing some interesting shapes on the dance floor [I’ve got the bang over to prove it] oh and not forgetting mine and Charlottes special performance to Lady Gaga’s ‘’Telephone’’ that was erm interesting. . . . .

Theres an episode of SATC where the girl are out having breakfast and they’re talking about soul mates and finding theirs and Charlotte goes onto say what if they’re each others soul mates. It reminded me of my friendship with Charlotte. She picks me up when I’m down, dust’s me off and builds me back up again. I’ve had some of the best times of my 20’s spent with her, be it her rustling up something amazing for tea or going into town and drunkenly hiding in bushes from people chasing us. Making space cakes and watching that frigging duck song on YouTube over and over and ‘’got any grapes’’ being the funniest thing ever. Waking up with a macaroon stuck to her back and then eating it [lol] to sending voice messages to each other repeatedly saying ‘’clam chowder’’ 

Charlotte was Wilson now Wace, we make a good team, I love you man x

”I Love a Crop Top, Especially in October. . . .’'

MXCI Harley Tank

Ok so this isn't strictly a crop top but I heard it on the radio this morning and it made me ugly laugh so for the sake of the title lets just pretend its loosely related ok? ok.

So we all know I get a lot of internet girl crushes and we all know one of my biggest internet girl crushes is the mega babe Amy Valentine, I don't know what I crush on more, her or her dreamy wardrobe, I probs reckon it's like 50/50. I always see her posting gorge item's from MXCI and basically, I wanted to get me some of that. 

I settled on this Harley tank that I am all kinds of in love with. I really like the deep plunging neckline, it means I can show off my cutest lace bralettes which makes the loveliest of combos.Tucked into my black skort, I may have just found my new fave outfit. However I do a bit f a confession, this has been held up in my wardrobe for a little over 3 months now as I just haven't had the chance to wear it despite wanting to live in it since it arrived at my door. I just never had the opportunity to crack it out, that was until I went out with a few of my old work ladies for a lil reunion a few weekends ago and loved the end result of styling it with my Primark skort. I was a little apprehensive choosing the top in Oxblood as I thought t would clash horribly with my hair and then I remembered who I was and also remembered I'm all about the clash [not the band]

My Aesthetic? Oversized T-shirt Dress and Velvet Vans of Course.

Topshop oversized T-shirt Dress

It's getting to that time of year again where I'll be dressing for warmth and comfort instead trying to get a lil ~experimental~ with my outfit choices. As much as I love to experiment with what I'm wearing I struggle to come up with interesting outfits when all I want to do is wear the nearest thing that resembles my bed October to March. Basically all the layers, all the warmth all the oversized.

On the flip side, I absolutely love that this time of year means all the glitter and metallics and velvet errythang and oh boy I'm excited. James has helped me pick out the beginnings of my festive wardrobe today starting with some metallic goodness. 

But for now, let me introduce you to this little beauty.

The oversized T-shirt

I met up with my very lovely blogger pal Bry and we had a wander round York chatting all things blog, eating beaut things from Bills [FYI the brioche with hummus and topped with haloumi and sweet chili is out of this world] having a good old shop and a general catch up. I spotted this in Topshop and decided there and then I needed it and whipped out my Topshop card [lol can't adult] its cool though cos Bry got me a 10% student discount so yeah.

I love it so much. I love that I am essentially just wandering around in a big t-shirt and passing it off as a dress and it only just covers my butt but meh 26 years as a half-giant I'm used to my butt being nearly out. With my big scarf, that's basically a blanket and my velvet Vans I picked up from Japan last year this has rapidly become my favorite outfit AND as mentioned in the above previously, this is probably the closest I'll be to channeling my bed in an outfit.

Two and A Half Years



I've got a little soppy appreciation thang about to happen up in here, you'll be forgiven to click the cross at the top of your browser if sap ain't your thing, heck sap isn't mine but when you fully appreciate someone well it kinda just spills out of nowhere and your past cynical self would be disgusted with the next few paragraphs I'm about to write. But when you meet your best pal its kinda hard not to.


I have been with James 2 and a half years today. 2 and a half years we've been virtually inseparable. 2 and a half years of creating memories, facing tough times and getting to know each other through and through weird habits and all. But you know I wouldn't change a thing about him for the world.

Reasons Jim Jam is da bomb

1) He lets me call him Jim Jam even though he hates it . . . .

2) One time I was really hung over and James would usually trapes up to Subway in town to get me all the carbs but this time, I was like dead. I woke up after a 5-hour epic nap and he had been into town and laid a Subway on my pillow for when I could consume food without feeling queasy

3) He helps me chose what to wear AND is the best shopping partner a girl could ask for

4) We once stayed up half the night having a competition to see who could whisper ''pooey'' in each
other's ear the quietest and we thought it was the funniest thing ever. [we are 12]

5) He makes me laugh a lot

6) He opens my parcels when I online shop, wears what I bought then sends me a picture of himself in it looking sassy as f*uck

7) He's always got my back, no matter what

8) Another time I was a little tender from drinking the night before [I don't have a problem honest] he put on my blue wig and pretended he was having a FRONT DIY  alt girl - equse shoot and paraded around in just his boxers, I still have the image of him having Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets placed strategically between his crotch etched into my mind FOREVER.

9) Best.support.system.ever

10) He's the bet cat dad ever to Cassie my child, even though he hates cats.
