From Desk to Dancefloor | Outfit

Like many others, I've been desperately soaking up the last of the summer sun lately. As the nights draw in, it becomes ever so clear to me how precious these sun-kissed evenings are. Funny isn't it, how we can spend all of July and August taking the summer for granted then, come September, we're all scrabbling to fit in after work drinks and make the most of it before the sunshine slips away for good. Guilty. 

Cue the 'desk to dancefloor' outfit. A trusty combo that's conservative enough for the office but can be sexed up come 5 o'clock so there's no need to feel drab during dinner and drinks.

DIY Pinterest Style Bouquet

If you love Pinterest as much as me, you'll have seen all of the images of stunning rooms adorned with roses, or piles of pretty pink and white peonies, delicately laid in glass vases on top of stacks of stylish books. Well, I decided to shamelessly recreate the look for my living room because well, I think it's gorgeous. I certainly don't have the budget to buy fresh florals every week though so in this post I'm showing you how to DIY at a fraction of the price. 

Read on for my tips, tricks and cheats to getting the look for less!

My Winter Ready Skincare Routine

 I know, I know. This title is wince worthy but the sad sad truth is that as much as we don't want to admit it, in the words of Ned Stark, winter is coming. This year I've decided to skip the first four steps of post-summer grief and skip right to the acceptance part. It's coming, there's nothing I can do about it, so I might as well embrace the autumn and get ready!

The colder months always take a toll on my skin, drying it out and causing it to look dull and grey but not this year! Read on for my guide to super soft and glowy skin year round.

Instagram & Snapchat Lately...

Hellooo! Sorry it's been a bit quiet on here for the last week or so, my work as a freelancer has been super busy but I'm certainly not complaining! I really love working for myself on projects I'm passionate about. In the meantime, I have been checking in on Instragram and Snapchat with outfits, cheat day meals and little snippets from my day. Here's a little peek at what I've been posting. If you want to follow me, my username is @missjadefraser on everything - nice and easy!

Healthy Chocolate Chip Frozen Yoghurt | Recipe

What's better than double chocolate chip ice cream? Something that looks like chocolate chip ice cream, tastes like chocolate chip ice cream and yet contains wayyyy less fat than chocolate chip ice cream - woop woop! All the nice, much less naughty. Yes, cool, creamy and oh so chocolatey, this delicious DIY fro yo tastes so decadent you'd never guess it's a healthier alternative to shop bought chocolate ice cream. It actually tastes more chocolatey than chocolate ice cream I think. Probably because there's less yucky fat getting in the way of all that rich chocolatey flavour.
I totally dropped the fro yo out of the cone when getting this shot... See Twitter for the fail photo! 

Bring it to this summer's BBQs and picnics to show off to share with your friends (or keep it all to yourself - no judgement here trust me). Either way it's a winner s read on for the super easy 3 ingredient recipe...

Rose Tinted Sunglasses | Outfit

It's no secret, I'm a golden girl. Silver may be cool yes but gold... Warm, rich and gorgeously glittering under the summer sun. Rose gold though, rose gold is magical in its own right. Not as bold as regular gold, but subtly striking instead. Cool and warm at the same time. Sassy in style statement yet still soft and feminine due to its pink accenting. 

When I saw that mirrored rose gold sunglasses were trending this summer I just new I had to get a pair. After a quick butchers on ASOS and other trendy sites at pairs for £30-100, I knew there was only one place that was going to be in my price bracket. Low and behold, pages and pages of glimmering mirrored rose gold sunglasses all at great prices.

The Perfect Posh Picnic Food | Recipe

Now that we're fully into the swing of summer, I've been taking every opportunity to dine al fresco. Breakfasts on the balcony, lunch breaks and dinner dates on a picnic in the park... Any excuse so soak up some sunshine whilst I eat is ideal for me. Something I always used to struggle with though is what to pack for the perfect picnic.

A BLT and crisps can feel a little basic, especially when you're pretending you're on the beach in Barcelona not on a blanket in Buckinghamshire haha. For this reason, I've rustled up some quick, easy and healthy dishes that will add a touch of class to your summer picnic, even when you're pinching the pennies.
