Coat - Boohoo // Shirt - eBay // Jeans - Missguided // Shoes - ASOS // Bag - eBay

Although it’s spring, April has a real autumn feel about it, with the still relatively cold evenings and plenty of rain. I’d like to be reaching for cute little dresses and summer sandals but unfortunately my wardrobe is still full of coats and scarves and an outfit like this is still pretty normal at the moment...

It feels like it’s been a while since we last spoke, so hello! I used to post 2/3 outfit posts a week and now I’m lucky if I do that a month so it feels like I miss out on telling you a lot! Since I switched my layout up I’ve been really inspired with my blog. I’ve been making a lot more effort, although last week probably says differently! I’ve been meaning to get this post up for a while but I’ve just been so busy. I have about 14 posts which are either half finished, a little bit done or just an idea. I’m making my way through them all, slowly but surely!

Last Sunday I celebrated my 27th birthday... I was 21 when I first started this blog! Now, that is crazy. Saturday was spent shopping in Nottingham at intu Victoria, I’m working with them on a little project at the moment which I’ll be sharing soon.  Although we’re less than half an hour away from the city centre we stayed in a hotel for the night, my parents had very kindly gifted us a voucher and thought it would be the perfect time to use it. Saturday night I ate Italian food, drank cocktails and was asleep by 1am, perfection! Sunday we met my parents for brunch, I had scrambled egg on toast and blueberry pancakes on the side, perfectly acceptable to have 2 breakfasts on your birthday right?

Since then it’s been downhill, I’ve been battling a ‘worse than a cold but not quite flu’ virus all week which has hit me like a tonne of bricks. It’s also meant I’ve missed all of my exercises classes for the week which is making me feel worse! Ugh. I’m just writing this week off and will start again Monday as I’m away all weekend. I’m off to London for the LookFantastic #LFBLOOMS event which I’m really looking forward to, I miss all the events I’m invited to as they’re always in the week but seeing as this is a Saturday I can go, yay! I’m also going to stay at my parents for the night to have a catch up with them. 

As you can see I took my Chloe Faye dupe for a spin, isn't she dreamy? You can read all about her here.

  11. There are two basic roofing systems, low-slope roofs and steep-slope roofs. According to our roofing contractor in Houston Tx the commonly seen residential roofs are steep-slope roofs, and they are incredibly beneficial for your home. Discuss your options with our professionals.
