In the occasion where I only have 5 minutes to get ready, I always go for comfort and 99.5% of the time I’m not happy with what I have chosen to wear. This picture is a perfect example, I have my slouchy Uniqglo shirt, my brogues from Asos, and my skinny jeggings from Gap.
I would likely wear this to get a pint of milk, not to go to work in. I love dressing up for things rather than dressing down. The idea of saving your best clothes for special occasions is nonsense. You look good, you feel good. I think I need to be a bit more organised in the morning and leave the comfort look for the milk run.
I bought this gorgeous knitwear from H&M for £39.99, not a high price to pay for warm and comfort. The only thing it does is shed hairs but I can live with that.

I bought some velvet joggers from H&M. I initially bought them to lounge in but after trying them on, they are super soft and lovely not to wear out, I just need to dress the top and the shoes so it doesn’t get swallowed up in the land of lounge.
I wore mine with my open shoulder top from Gap and smart ankle boots.
Well done me.
When you find some fake specs to make you look intelligent and you grab them immediately .
These are £12 from Urban Outfitters, not much to look like a genius.
Stop! Look at these. I’m so in love with my ankle boots from Office, not only are they lush but they are so comfortable which is a rarity for me.
I have to check the weather so I don’t wear them in the rain, otherwise it will be ruined. It’s made of calf hair and feels and looks luxurious. I must look after these.
I recently bought a camera, the Sony cyber shot. My iPhone camera has let me down and as with everyone in the world it’s the most used and valued. I am devastated and it’s rather annoying as everything has become a photo or video opportunity, I’m not entirely sure what we used to do before the camera was on our phones, but I couldn’t take it anymore so thought a camera would be much cheaper than purchasing the iPhone 8.
The picture above is me trying the 10 second timer on the camera, I’m pleasantly surprised seen as I was alone and managed to take this, the lighting could be better but for a first attempt it’s not a bad effort.
My dress is from urban outfitters and so are the fake spectacles.
The Sony cyber shot was £89.99 from argos

Zara hates me, it’s true. She has targeted me from thousands of people and I just can’t let the relationship continue. I’m talking about the store, not an actual person. After a couple of purchases all sporadic and varied from shirts to jumpers to jackets I noticed a pattern.
The reason for the end of our relationship is after numerous purchases they just weren’t to the highest quality I would expect, the most annoying part being finding a problem just shortly after bringing the item home. If this did happen I would obviously return the item but I really really prefered not to. This is after careful consideration, imagine finding the perfect jacket that fits you like a glove, after a week it had a great big hole that had appeared.
My last purchase was at Christmas, I despise winter which means along with it I despise cardigans and jumpers but on this particular day, I was meeting someone at Regents Street and was 15 mins early and with a limited amount of warm clothing I popped into Zara and found a lovely charcoal jumper. I wore it ONCE and to my dismay bobbling hell decended on it, it looked like I had it for a hundred years.
I emailed Zara with a Ra Ra Ra message of disatisfaction. ‘Bring it back into any store for a full refund or exchange’ they said. No, i thought and i didn’t, because I am done with you Zara, you win, I love you and you hate me! I am fully aware this is just bad luck as Zara is everyone’s favourite high street store. I just can’t cope with the consistent annoying inevitability of a new exciting purchase ending up back where it came from.
I’ll probably change my mind, but for now, it’s off my radar. Sorry Zara.
The bobble jumper is my bedtime jumper so not a soul can see the bobbleness shame.
The end, cry*
