How's that brick lane coming?

September has been the craziest old month! It started with an internship and ended with me moving back to Notts and into my new place ready for uni to start the first week of October! 
September really did feel like it was full to the brim and I was a real little busy bee, but in the end that kinda felt really nice! As always I'm bringing you a good ol' look back on my month through my Instagram lens! I'm completely obsessed with Instagram, so if you like what you see my account is, holljc or check it out here! But onto September, and that cheeky look back at all that it contained;

Lady Luck

Jumpsuit - C/O Boohoo  Bag - Skinnydip London at ASOS
Shoes - Topshop  Necklace - Primark 

So summer is pretty much over which means thicker clothing and lots of layers are in store for the next few months at least! If you've been following my blog for a while now you'll know that dressing weather or season appropriate isn't always what I'm best at! But then Boohoo came along! This jumpsuit is great for those warmer days as it can be worn on it's own, but it's also fab for when autumn and then winter finally hit as it can be layered up in so many different ways, which is always rather handy! I absolutely loved pairing it with my statement Skinnydip London bag, as the contrast between the all black jumpsuit and the bold statement bag really makes it pop! 

God bless

Blogging Bloopers

Every time I take outfit pictures there is guaranteed to be a couple of, what I am calling, Blogging Bloopers! Pictures that didn't exactly turn out the way they should've! Some of them are blurry, some of them are a result of the wind, others catch me mid sentence and well frankly, others are just plain hilarious - exhibit A is above! 
As a mini celebration of my 3 years blogging (nearly a month ago on September 1st) I've decided to bring you guys a selection of my recent blogging bloopers! So sit back, enjoy and have a good ol' giggle at my expense, cause I admit some of these are priceless!  

God bless

A couple of weeks ago myself and a friend attended #TheBloggersMarket! Its a shopping event hosted and organised by 5 amazing UK bloggers including Carrie from Wishwishwish, Liv from What Olivia Did and Dunya from Dearest Deer. The first Bloggers Market was held at the beginning of the year in Camden, however being from the Midlands I couldn't justify going all the way down to London for just the market. 
BUT they had another one! And this time it happened to be at the end of the 5 weeks I was in London for my first internship, it actually was the day I went home, so it was a pretty great way to spend my final morning in London! 
The girls were selling some of their really beautiful old clothes for some amazing prices, plus there was make up by Benefit, hair braiding and live illustrations being done! Oh, and food from Krispy Kreme and Yo Sushi, it kinda felt like a dream come true! 
It was such a fun morning, and I picked up a gorgeous pink dress that you've already seen, and it was amazing to be able to go with my friend Jess! This is another event that I vlogged so make sure to head over to my YouTube Channel (here) to see that if you fancy! 
If the girls organise another Bloggers Market then I'll definitely be heading down, as it was so so much fun! But here's my photo diary of the morning, and all the lovely things that were going on!      

God bless
