Autumn Walks with Joules

Dunham Massey

If you went back in time to my blog this time last year I could guarantee you would be reading the exact same words in a similar of sorts blog post - I love Autumn. Always have, always will. The beautiful colours, the crisp cold air and the call for boots, cosy knitwear, hats, scarves and gloves.

Suitcase Relationship

living out of a suitcase
This blog post goes out to all the ladies and fellas who spend their lives unpacking and repacking every week or so to go and stay with their boyfriends or girlfriends. You're totally gonna relate to this. So to paint a picture, I've been with my boyfriend for a good year and a few months. We're happy plodding along as we are, spending most weekends together making a pretty good team. Now I don't want to mislead you and say I am in a long distance relationship, we're not exactly on different sides of the country or planet. However we are on different sides outside of the city (and it's a big old city here in Manchester and Greater Manchester) and a simple 'just nipping round to the boyfriends!' is actually a 25 minute trek down the M60 and most likely in Friday night 'Everyone just wants to get home so I'm going to drive like an asshole in my asshole Audi' (no hate on Audi owners, I'm just jel) traffic. This means that I really only get to spend time with him on a weekend making the trip worthwhile with my little wheelie holdall crammed full with my life belongings. But I guess whether your long distance or your boyf/girf is 10 minutes down the road, you're still gonna constantly be hauling your belongings with you for a sleepover anyway.

Too Thin, Too Fat - Life on Weight Watchers

weight watchers app
Okay admit it, is this not the weirdest topic you think you've ever read about on my blog? Probably not... Well let's get to it. 2016 so far has been a funny one. 50% of it has been super tough. But I don't want to focus on that, I want to focus on the super awesome bits because those bits are the best. Remember those new years resolutions you take where you vow to lose weight, get fit and sort your life out? But then after like 2 weeks you forget all about it and your back to rummaging the cupboards for left over Christmas food. Well this year, I was not that girl! I upped my gym game (When I say 'upped' I mean I actually made a conscious effort to spend more than 30 minutes in the gym and more than twice a week). As well as this I took the decision to join Weight Watchers and completely change my lifestyle. Don't wanna be no cliche but, totally new year, new me.

Stila Eyeshadow Discovery

stila eyes are the window

Don't you love it when you discover an incredible make up brand? A few months before Christmas myself and my gal pals had a girly night in. In true cliche style this included wine, chocolate, facials and make overs. No you haven't just wondered onto the set of a 80s teen movie. One of my friends is a make up pro and has a make up collection every girl dreams of. From Dior to Tom Ford, you name it, she has it. Needless to say we took it in turns fight over whose make up she did next.

Payday Beauty Hoard

Doesn't it feel like it has been years since the last payday?! No...just me? Seriously, I have way too much month at the end of my pay! I also had such a rubbish week last week as I was suffering from a horrific illness that started off as a week long dizzy migraine to a heavy cold that stopped me sleeping. Feeling so sorry for myself by the end of the week, I decided a little retail therapy was a definite must over the weekend. And naturally spent the majority of my pay in the space of the first weekend. Woops

A Little Chanel Obsession

chanel lipstick coco chanel book

Ah I am so excited to write this post! Purely because I am Chanel obsessed. I've been fascinated with the brand Chanel since I was young and I witnessed my mum receive a gorgeous Chanel compact mirror and Chanel No 5. Since then my obsession grew with a fascination around the history of Coco Chanel, her miliriary inspired famous suit and of course, the 2.55 Chanel handbag! It's on my bucket list to one day own one of those babies (when I win the lottery or become CEO of the universe of course)! I was treated to a gorgeous coffee table book for Christmas called 'Coco Chanel' by Megan Hess on the history of Chanel. I definitely recommend it, it has the most beautiful illustrations on each page (Yes I am fan girling over Chanel once more).

January, I'm Just Not That Into You

Looking into the distance and thinking WHY JANUARY WHY
Raise your hand if you personally feel victimised by January (if you get the Mean Girls reference then kudos to you, skip 3 weeks and head straight for February). Didn't January go on for like 5000 years now?  Granted, I got the fantastic opportunity to pause January, go on holiday to Center Parcs for a week and celebrate my boyfriends 30th birthday. But as soon as all that fun ended January grabbed me and threw me under the bus. It went on as I say, for 5000 years and we have crawled into February completely broke and cold (summer where you at girl?)
