Listening to: Penny Lane- The Beatles 

I've been very organised this weekend and done all the legwork for a couple of posts (!!!!) hopefully that would mean I will be donating more time towards blogging as I do love it. Plus I hopefully have bought the PERFECT pair of jeans from Primark (who  I personally think have the best fitting jeans) that I can't wait to wear! 

Other than that a few positive (and some negative)  things have happened- which I cannot WAIT to share with you all (the positives anyway I don't like to think of things that are negative)- but still remain just as awful in how I feel as I did at the beginning of the weekend. I obviously need a proper holiday away from everything. 

I don't know if its the weather or PCOS related but I just feel so... meh. 

My dad always used to say "if you don't go to school, you don't go out to play"- and one bank holiday stuck at home and you're turned off sick days for life- so I never really stop (unless its contagious and I'm physically not allowed at work- which has happened.... once in 7 years) when I feel ill so I just want to snap out of it. I've got a lot of plans in the next few weeks I need to be on the top of my game. I don't feel like I've  doing anything (nothing stops my plans) I just wish that I woke up every morning and felt refreshed.

That and having the energy to cook/ bake tasty healthy treats for my lunchbox (possibly my favourite part of the day is opening my lunchbox and seeing what I packed).

Skirt: eBay
Tee: Topshop
Oversized Denim Jacket: Charity Shop (similar here)
Scarf: Clairs Accessories
Lips: Kiss of Life (Rimmel)
Bag: River Island (similar here

The tee was a Christmas present and is beautifully baggy and super soft. I've got into the habit of knotting baggy tops above high waisted bottoms to flash a tiny bit if tummy- I like it. Plus again the beanie (I really think its amazing).

The scarf I have had for at least 10 years- its frayed a bit but I can't bare to stop wearing it, so I've started to braid it and wear it as a necklace (and is actually quite warm). I wear the Kiss of Life lipstick pretty much everyday- its my perfect lipstick!

I love this skirt, I bought it a few months ago and never had a chance to photograph it. Before you ask if I was cold- I had a thick pair of tights underneath. I love mine, and there is always a few (or various conditions) but my favourite are from ASOS Marketplae here, here and here.

  22. ahhhhhhhhhhhh Jodie I LOVE THIS - it's so 90s! 90s is my favourite decade EVER EVER EVER. I have serious outfit envy!!!!

    LFW is creeping closer and closer, I'm getting so excited! Have you planned your outfits yet? I need to! Last time I didn't and it was such a last-minute panic. I won't be there until the 17th onwards though as I'm in bournemouth :(

    Thank you for your lovely comment, my granddad should be ok but he needs to have such a serious operation as it's in his mouth - he'll be in ITU for ages after in a vegetative state breathing through a tube in his neck which is horrible to think of :( but he's a fighter!

    Hope you're ok and feel a bit better soon. Sending lots of hugs! x

  23. love the plaid skirts so much!!
