Today really hasn't been the best of days for me - for one I've been feeling quite down and ill, plus this afternoon, whilst volunteering in my favourite charity shop, I either misplaced my mobile phone or it was stolen from behind the till. I really do believe it was stolen, and whilst it was my own fault for not keeping it in my bag or in a drawer, I'm pretty darn upset upset about it, though a little part of me is hoping it is only lost. In more positive news, I'm really rather happy with the style of this post, I definitely think I'll do more of these in the future, if you'd be interested? I recently added a poll to my sidebar asking what you'd like to see on my blog, so I'd be so grateful if you could vote! Above are a few details of what I wore today (I'll be showing you the full outfit in the next few days), plus a few of my more recent acquisitions. I picked up the adorable little tan satchel in my favourite charity shop, the floral duvet cover was a gift from my nan and I bought the vintage Playboy mirror from Battersea car boot sale. Isn't the mirror amazing? It was only three pounds, so quite a bargain indeed! Also, just a quick note to say thank-you for all of your kind comments as of late, especially regarding my blog's birthday, sorry I'm so slow at replying to them all! Love, Jazzabelle.

  4. I love the photos, and everything looks so lovely. If someone stole your phone thats disgusting, it's bad enough to steal from someone ever, but from a charity shop just makes it even worse.x

  8. This is such a lovely style of post :) most probably because i'm a nosey parker and like seeing what people get up to, but moreso because yet again you've picked up some lovely things! The bag is gorgeous, i don't even want to hear how much it was as I'm sure I'll only groan with envy!
    So sorry to hear about your phone- fingers crossed it's just been misplaced x

  25. I love looking at your photography, so any kind of post is fine by me!
    That mirror is amazing! I can't wait to get back to London so I can hit up the Battersea charity shops!
    I hope you find your phone too, it's horrible when things get stolen.

  26. I hope your phone turns up, as it would be awful to think somebody stole it from behind the till and the fact that it was in a charity shop makes it all the more worst.

    I hope you are feeling better today.

    The Playboy mirror is so iconic and will make for a great feature on your wall. I really like the way the frame is too xxx

  28. So sorry to hear about your phone, and I think it's made me think to be a little more careful about leaving mine behind the counter at the charity shop where I volunteer. I love the satchel, good find.
