Hello everyone! I'm finally back from my lovely family holiday to Koh Lanta in Thailand. I honestly didn't want to leave, I had such a wonderful time! I spent most of my days swimming in the pool and sea, wandering around the resort, visiting town, talking with the staff, taking many photographs, eating plenty of yummy food and spending time with my family. It was definitely worth the three planes, two little boats, a cab ride and plenty of waiting it took to get there. If you don't mind, for the next few posts I'll be posting about my holiday, I have so many photographs that I'd like to share with you! Also, I'm so behind on replying to comments, emails and reading your blogs, so please bear with me! I'm looking forward to catching up with all of your London Fashion Week posts seeing as I couldn't go this season, but luckily for me Vitamin Water kindly sent me a LFW goodie bag which was a lovely little surprise when I arrived home. Love, Jazzabelle. P.S. Natural hair, no makeup and actually showing bare legs, can you believe it?!

Hello everyone! I haven't mentioned it on my blog in quite a while, but I'm off to Thailand tomorrow for a lovely holiday! I'm going with fifteen other family members,  so it will be quite the reunion seeing as we are dotted about the country and some of us only see each other a few times a year. I've only been to Ireland, Portugal and Paris in the past so this is definitely my biggest holiday to date. I'm both really rather nervous and excited, for various reasons. My main worry is that my self confidence issues will get the better of me, but I'm trying to stay postive! My uncle is bringing his laptop and iPads (yes, he has two - ridiculous!) with him so I'm hoping I'll be able to blog once or twice whilst I'm out there, but if not I'm sure I'll be tweeting every now and then. See you soon! Love, Jazzabelle.

Another Monday spent volunteering in my favourite charity shop; drinking tea, sorting through donations, tidying up, pricing and hanging up clothes, managing the till, serving customers and just generally having loads of fun. I of course picked up plenty of bargains myself, including a Topshop dress and two pairs of jeans, a few gold frames, a book, an old issue of Love magazine and a bag full of old unused matchboxes. I didn't spend more than seven pounds, so I'm very happy with that! Have you picked up any charity shop, car boot sale or jumble sale bargains recently? I'd love to know, I'm always interested in knowing what secondhand bargains people find. Thank-you for all of your lovely comments regarding my little magazine feature! Love, Jazzabelle.

I actually can't quite believe it, but I have been featured in a magazine! Never would I have thought that something like this would happen me, so I feel ever so lucky and proud that my little blog and hobo jumper (haha) are worthy enough to be printed in a publication. When Emma emailed me at the end of last year asking if I would like to be featured in Gallery Magazine, I couldn't quite believe it, though I was rather worried as I know I'm not the best when it comes to writing. Nevertheless, I really enjoyed writing my interview answers (some of which had to be cut out or shortened due to lack of space - or probably due to fact that I rambled so much), you can view the latest issue here, I'm on page sixty! I'll be treasuring this magazine forever. Love, Jazzabelle.

This isn't my usual style of posting, but I've been really rather busy (in the best way!) over the last few days, so to be honest I've just found it easier to post everything I've been up to in one go. If Iwasn't so darn fussy with everything I do, I definitely could have got a few posts out of this, but nevertheless, it makes a nice change. I honestly can't believe the amount of things that has happened all because of my little blog recently. It can be quite overwhelming, really. How do you cope and find everything that has happened to you since you started blogging? Thank-you for all of your lovely comments of late, I don't deserve them all. Love, Jazzabelle.
