Yesterday afternoon was the perfect time to debut my new dress and shoes I featured in my last post, and oh how I love them both! Simple, classic outfits are always a favourite of mine, so both the shoes and dress are top of my list to taking with me to Las Vegas and Los Angeles next month! I never really thought smock dresses would suit me, so I'm pretty darn surprised that they do and shall definitely be investing in a few more. I'm lovin' checks and general black and white prints at the moment too, so I'm sure you'll be seeing plenty of new garments popping up in future outfit posts! I hope you like the black and white shots my mum took of me, it makes a nice change on the blog, don't ya think? Love, Jazmine.

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.

This year really has gone by ever so fast, it seems like only a few weeks ago I was celebrating new year's with some of my family! I'm now fast approaching my twenty-first birthday, which is very exciting and a little scary, I have to say. Havin' some tough years as a teenager, turning twenty really let me close one chapter of my life and start afresh, and as clichéd as it sounds I really feel like I've found myself in my twenties, so I'm intrigued to find out what the next year will bring. Will twenty-one be the age I find love, discover my dream job or win the lottery? Probably not, but I'm not ruling any of those things out. I'm (often) happy and (somewhat) healthy, and have many years ahead of me to figure everything out. I keep reminding myself everyday to try not to fret about the future and take each day as it comes - so this month especially, I'm determined to have a more positive outlook and do-as-I-damn-well-please attitude. Hopefully my new found carefree nature means I'll be posting a little more than usual too! Speaking of new posts, if you'd like to find out what I got up to yesterday afternoon, do take a peek at mine and my mum's new blog post over on Barri & Belle! Love, Jazmine.
