Seeing as I've been treating myself quite a bit recently, I thought I'd share some of my recent acquisitions with you! I've been stuck in a little bit of a style rut, so I thought by adding a couple of simple, classic, easy to thrown on dresses to my wardrobe they'd help me get my inspiration back. These dresses are both so 'me' and lovely - they'll look great worn with the heels I also purchased, or with a pair of Converse with a little denim jacket - perfect! I also finally took the plunge and bought an iPad mini, and now I have it I honestly don't know what I did without it! Between that and my new Huawei Ascend P6 phone, they've really upped the quality of my Instagram pictures and are great for general blog reading/tweeting. Get me being all fancy with my new clothes and gadgets! 
I've had the most busy couple of weeks, I have to say. For two days last week I was chosen to work on Rizzle Kicks' upcoming new music video shadowing their stylist which was such an amazing experience, then a few days later my mum and dad threw me a surprise birthday party! All of my family, friends and colleagues turned up, my cousin made me the most beautiful William Morris cakes, plus I received so many wonderful presents. I feel so lucky to have such amazing people in my life. On Monday, I celebrated my actual twenty-first birthday and had a nice little day out with my mum, starting the day with a trip to The Breakfast Club, seeing Monsters University at the cinema (which was so darn brilliant!) then ending the day at my favourite local restaurant. On Tuesday I did a spot of modelling for Mint Vintage, and in between all of that I've been busy at work visual merchandising as the new collections are slowly coming in - phew! I'm now tucked up at home resting after having had a wisdom tooth extracted, finally being able to soak in everything that's happened over the last busy couple of weeks. Speak to you all soon! Love, Jazmine.

  22. The White Pepper gingham dress is so gorgeous! All these dresses would look perfect with little Mary Jane's and cute frilly socks (if your intent is to look like a 6 year old, of course!). xx


  23. After reading this I went straight onto to the ASOS website and added them save to later.. I seriously need to learn to hide my bank card when I read your blog, haha! You have the most wonderful taste and those dresses are both perfect - can't wait to see how you style them : )

  26. I'm really interested to hear more about the huawei phone as I've heard it's great for bloggers. Is the photo quality better than the iphone 5? Would be great to know more, i've never actually heard of the brand until last week - but i'm not very good with being in the loop of the mobile phone world! Hope you're well, Jazmine. x

    1. i don't have an iphone 5, but the quality is really great! it's got a 5 megapixel camera on the front, plus i don't really notice a difference between my huawei and ipad shots on instagram! i'd definitely recommend it and i've only had it a week!

      i'm great, thanks. hope you are too! xx

  27. Gosh, I just love those dressy shoes. Having just a simple strap is one of my favorite looks!



  28. I adore that whitepepper dress! Waiting till I have enough money and hoping it's still in stock.
