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
One of my favourite (and I mean FAVOURITE) pieces to wear this winter has been this white turtleneck/ roll neck jumper from Topshop.
It’s very soft, knitted and definitely keeps me warm in the cold winter tucked into a pair of dark jeans/leggings and layered with a coat 🙂
I wear a UK size small (S) and LOVE to style it with the little black bag you can see above ^. A small on me is quite loose but not oversized so I would size up for less fitted look. The fit around the shoulders is baggy, but more tapered in the arm, making it fit great in a coat!!
(I got this jumper while Topshop was still independent, so now to buy it you have to got through ASOS.)
Happy New year and I hope, if you are reading this, you are well!! 🙂
On the 18th of January I celebrated my 24th birthday with my family in England’s THIRD national lockdown…
I had planned to have a party last year but decided against it because of my Master’s degree being very demanding at the time and thought I would have one this year instead 😂. That obviously did NOT go as planned and so a little family celebration it had to be!
It was lovely in all honesty. We had a buffet, cake, cards, gifts, and a close friend even sent me a little surprise balloon.
I hope eventually I’ll be able to celebrate properly with friends, but I’m not holding my breath haha.
I hope 24 ends up being an exciting year. It’s hard having to stay in every day, never really achieving anything or moving forward. I want to turn 25 having done something I’m proud of.
Hello and I hope you are having a wonderful December first! I haven’t posted much on here lately as England went into a second lockdown at the start of November and I didn’t want to post something just for the sake of posting, ya know?
Happily, that lockdown finishes TOMORROW (Dec 2nd) so I want to post a lot of Christmassy content this month (well at least I intend to…we’ll see haha).
BUT before I do that I want to write about last March when the literal last thing I did before the Rona took over was visit a sky bar in Birmingham!!
It was my friends idea as she’s lived in Birmingham for a couple years now and really recommend it for a fun evening…
Before we went we had a day shopping and eventually got tapas at a Spanish restaurant, which was incredibly divine. Of course we also had some cocktails 🍸
We headed up to the bar around 10:30pm and sat outside with a view of the city ~ inside they had a piano and places to dine and it was honestly just a really lovely place to go.
It’s weird that it’s March again in 3 months…this year has gone so fast because none of us have done anything!!! I hope 2021 brings back some normality and adventures.
Hello! I hope you’re having a great week and are excited about the current Halloween season (I certainly am like always!).
There is something really epic about Halloween for me as every year I get crazy excited to celebrate it…
I think it’s because I’m in love with anything and everything gothic, eerie, dark and spooky. Movies like ‘Van Helsing (2004)’ and ‘Sleepy Hollow’ are some of my favourite films to watch and this time of year I have an excuse to watch them!!
I decided to calve some pumpkins this year (the small one turned out cuter than the other haha).
It’s super messy and time consuming but honestly a huge laugh and a lot of fun!
I’ve noticed a lot of people in the UK doing it this year which I’m happy about as the UK isn’t that big on Halloween usually!
My boyfriend came round a few days ago and we also baked some Halloween pumpkin biscuits together which was a lot of fun ~ he also wants to calve a pumpkin so I’ve bought two more for us to do together in the week (including a stencil kit this time as that orange pumpkin turned out to be a massive failure)…
My bf wasn’t happy I put sprinkles on ‘his’ biscuit …
