I'm sure you all know how much I adore the simple things in life, so inspired by the launch of my new favourite magazine, I decided to spend the day doing some of my most loved simple things. In the morning I watched my favourite show (The Big Bang Theory, of course!), drank plenty of tea and coffee, rearranged my bedroom and flicked through some magazines. Then this afternoon I had a quick look around my local charity shops and went for a wander around Battersea Park with my mum to take some outfit pictures in my favourite spot.
As I was at home for most of the day, I spent a more time than usual on my hair, makeup and clothes, just to try something a little different. My pink lipstick (Creme in Your Coffee by Mac) and messy ponytail made a welcoming change from my usual bun or beehive and bare lips! I'm also sporting my favourite Cath Kidston top (I got half price due to my staff discount), which matches the colours of my secondhand bag and jean jacket perfectly. It was also lovely to have the confidence to wear such a short pair of shorts out, too! It was a lovely, sunny afternoon - it felt only right to wear a touch of colour and to get my legs out! Speak to you all soon. Love, Jazmine.

  2. I read The Simple Things curled up in my book-nook (slope-ceilinged corner at the top of my stairs) with some homemade lemonade and felt like I was living The Good Life. It has become one of my favourites after one issue!

    Whenever I see a denim jacket these days I always think 'Jazmine'. One of your signature pieces :-)
