Bloggers' Fashion Week Pre Party | Fashion

Back in September I attended an event for Bloggers Fashion Week and I was so busy with Fashion Week stuff at work at the time that I never got around to posting them. I didn't really know what to expect but the words 'pre party' couldn't be bad and I love being in the city for whatever reason so when I heard that it was being held in Leicester Square I knew I had to go.

Easy Kardashian Halloween Costume | YouTube

Here's a fun Halloween costume I did on my YouTube channel a couple of years ago. Can you guess who I am?  None other than the fabulous Kim Kardashian of course. This was kind of a tongue in cheek/lazy last minute costume suggestion for those parties that seem to creep up on you out of nowhere.

Stuff a cushion back there to give your trunk some junk and you're good to go!

Orange is the New Black | Mani Monday

With Halloween just a few days away, I decided that today's Mani Monday post should fit the theme. These nails are actually from a party nails post I did a couple of years ago, but I think the orange colour is also perfect for any Halloween parties you might have this weekend.

Colours: Fluro' Orange, Disco Heaven and Ibiza Mix by Models Own

I loooove mixing up different shades and textures of nail polish for a carefree look for the weekend. So that's nails sorted but I've yet to decide what I'm actually going to dress up as on Friday...

I Mean Business | Outfit

Hello All, so as promised, here are the outfit pictures that Monday's nail shot came from. This is the type of outfit I'd wear to a creative work meeting in the city. The trainers keep it casual and will ensure I'm comfortable on the inevitable standing tube ride. The coat is structured and chic enough to show that I mean business. 


As always with my outfit photos, there are lots more photos with the 'read more' link!

Throwback Thursday: Pretty Party Nails


Hi guys! Today I met my mum for lunch followed by a creative meeting for our jewellery and accessories line Made by Jade. We've got lots of really exciting new products coming in ready for Christmas as well as some old favourites coming back and I'm super excited about it all!! It means a lot of extra work for us both for the next few weeks but creating pretty things is such a rewarding process when you see the finished product so I know it will be worth it! 

I soooo wish I still had this ring. It was only cheap from New Look or somewhere but I love it!

Anyway, our meeting ended up going quite late and I didn't get to edit the outfit pictures I wanted to for today's post and, not wanting to mess with my posting schedule for the rest of the week, I found myself wondering what-oh-what could I post today at short notice... Then I remembered that it happens to be Thursday which is the perfect time to delve back into the archives of my blog and share some pictures past and pretty.

Cute Bath and Body on a Budget! | Haul

With it being Wednesday, aka 'Humpday', I've decided to share some little pick-me-ups that I have been relying on lately to get me through to the weekend. I don't know about you but nothing sets me up for the day better than an indulgent shower with my favourite bath and body goodies.

 Now, like many other girls, while I do love the little luxuries at Lush, I find them on the pricey side and there are times when I just can't justify spending £5 on shower gel. So imagine my excitement when some aimless lunch break wandering led me to stumble upon these super affordable goodies in none other than dah-dah-dahhh...

My September Favourites | YouTube


Hey, hey, heyyy! I just uploaded the first of many new videos on my YouTube channel. This one is my September Favourites video in which I'm showing some of my favourite fashion, beauty and other miscellaneous products I was using throughout the month of September. Click the play button below to check it out and, if you like it, you can subscribe for free to my YouTube channel so that you never miss a video! Just click this link here: Subscribe.



 As I mention in the video, the footage is ever so slightly out of focus as I had to set it up alone. Frustratingly, when I'm filming the screen I look into on my camera is sometimes too small to show if it's not 100% focused. So I can film an entire video without realising - fun times! Well, now I know for next time! Luckily it's not too bad. Remember to watch in HD for the best quality. You can select HD by clicking the little cog icon in the bottom right corner of the screen. Thank you so much for watching!

Blue Monday | Mani Monday Nails

These are the nails I'm rocking this week. Electric blue, one of my absolute favourite colours. There's just something so deliciously rich about it, I love it! 

Bracelet: Made by Jade // Nails: Barry M: Cobalt Blue

This is a sneak peek shot from a monochrome outfit look we shot on Sunday. I added the blue nails for a pop of colour so that the outfit wouldn't look so flat. The rest of the pictures of this outfit will go up on Sunday. I've decided that on Sundays my outfit posts will go up and on Mondays I'll do these 'mani' posts as I love refreshing my nail polish and creating fun, nail art designs too. I've spent the entire day today going through my photo library and finally planning in all of the photos and videos I've taken over the past god-knows-how-many months. I've planned out all of my blog posts and YouTube videos for the next two weeks now. There'll be something new up every day so keep checking back!

I'm Back!

Hello hello hello! Long time no blog...

I thought it was about time that I update here and explain my recent absence. Clearly I have not been abducted, nor have I completely abandoned my blog. Quite the opposite in fact. This week, after much deliberation, contemplation and general frustration, I finally gave up my full-time job to focus more on blogging and I couldn't be more excited!!!


I have an ever-growing list of ideas for blog posts and YouTube videos from outfits, lookbooks and hair and makeup tutorials to delicious recipes and cool DIY decor, but I was always too exhausted from work to get around to them all. Now that I'm switching to freelance work, I'll be able to make my own hours meaning more time to focus on all of the above. Not to mention that I'll be able to spend more time making jewellery and accessories for my online store madebyjade.co.uk - I can't wait!!

All this to say - keep watching this space! I hope that you start to notice that I'll be posting much more frequently both here and on my YouTube Channel from now on. Onwards and upwards!
