Hello, and a huge warm welcome to my blog! My name’s Charlotte Jayne Jackson and I’m currently based in Shropshire, England. The main focus of my blog is fashion, food and adventures so if that sounds great to you stick around, take a look, and enjoy! ~ x
What do you guys think of my new jacket? It’s faux leather!
Got this lovely jacket from ASOS Design and I’m crazy about it ~ It ties at the waist and even has slight shoulder padding!
I’ve been LOVING the 90’s grunge style recently just because of how genuinely ‘cool’ I think it makes people look…
I made sure to get faux leather as I have a plant based lifestyle and therefore always try to avoid buying animal products if I can help it (sometimes that’s hard but I try!).
I should say that this jacket is very oversized when it’s not tied but the belt pulls in the waist so nicely that it doesn’t matter that much – as I usually prefer more fitted clothing ~
Can’t wait to wear this out in the spring when Lockdown ends in the UK. It will honestly go with SO much.
I’ve already had a few people on Instagram message me about it, so as always I will link it down below xox
*Also I’m sorry that a lot of my photos are inside my house atm, but I’m not allowed to go outside to take photos because of the national lockdown restrictions where I live. I’m hoping that will change soon so I can give you better photos in more professional and interesting backdrops!*
Heya guys, I have something a bit different today!
My mom recently ordered me some BFF serum for both my face and eyes as a gift as I’ve been looking for a tinted moisturiser/ bb cream for a while.
Usually I wear a full face of make-up with foundation and concealer but I wanted something much lighter and natural for when I’m just at home or having a relaxing day with my boyfriend~
I really don’t have bad skin in all honestly but because I’m a red head I have a very pale complexion, meaning that I get very bad dark circles. It usually gets better when I got in the sun but because of the many lockdowns I have barely been outside and my complexion has gotten so much worse.
Therefore, a light coverage which I can quickly put on without brushes under my eyes and on my face (paired with filling in my eyebrows of course as they are very light otherwise!) is something I want to start trying. I want to look more natural and fresh! Haha.
So, as I was saying my mom decided to buy me a BFF cream and eye serum from Trinny London. It’s quite pricey but when I put it on my hand the coverage looked sooo good, even though it’s only light.
It came in beautiful sliver holographic packaging (LOVE), and the product tubes themselves have lovely holographic lids that just pull off easily. From the photos I’ve added you can see that there is also a third product. The serums came with a free mixing pot which I’m excited about as I LOVE to mix my eyeshadows, foundations, blushes etc.
I’m excited to use Trinny London as I never have before! I’ll post another blog update soon with a before and after of using the products 🙂
For Christmas this year I decided to invest in a proper winter coat. I owned many coats and jackets but I did not own one that was suitable for really cold weather… which is problematic when you live in a place with cold, damp winters.
I ended up choosing this beautiful white puffer coat from Zara. A size small (S) fits me great and it’s ever so warm :).
It’s fleece lined making it soft and cozy, but most importantly, it’s NOT made with down.
So many winter puffers are made with duck feathers and I wanted to find something gorgeous and suitable for the bitter cold that was also cruelty free!
I was definitely successful. This coat is suitable in temperatures -5C to -20C so perfect for winter breaks away (skiing!) or cold bonfire nights.
The pockets are lined and there are even straps in the back to stop the coat from falling off you as it’s quite heavy.
I love styling it with a turtle neck, some jeans, ankle boots/ snow boots, and a little black cross body bag.
Thanks for reading and thank you to all the people who have followed my blog recently ❤
