Hi lovelies! I got a hair cut today. It wasn't anything drastic, just a badly needed trim, but now that my hair has grown out I have been thinking what I want to do with it colour wise. I think I'm definitely going to head down the ombre route.

Ben Caplan band t-shirt (with sleeves cut-off) / Burgandy Maxi Skirt - vintage Laura Ashley / The Jackson Sunglasses by *MKL Accessories - Karmaloop / Loafers - vintage via Shag Vintage / harmonica pendant - Corky Saint Clair / Eternal Lilac 210 gel nail polish by Maybelline New York
Happy Spring lovely readers! It's finally the perfect time of year for my favourite kind of garment: maxi skirts. This particularly gorgeous skirt was found on an op-shopping adventure several years ago and I have been loving it ever since. It is an old Laura Ashley piece made from a lovely crepe silk. I love the way it drapes and how it shimmers in the sun shine.
The top is a piece of merchandise from a very beardy musician that Jess and I discovered at Woodford Folk Festival last year. Ben Caplan had some glorious shirts and this was my favourite; I love how wave-like and peaceful his beard looks.
Hope you're all enjoying this beautiful warm weather. It is my favourite time of year. What have you been waiting all winter to wear in the warmer months?

Hi lovelies! So I thought I'd do a quick post about the beauty bits I have been loving using lately. Whilst there aren't many new bits, they are all things I've been doing everyday recently.

Homemade baked beans have been popping up on cafe breakfast menus of late. This is a delicious version my lovely friends, Sam and Rhianna, taught me and I'd like to share it with you.
This recipe takes over an hour to cook so I like to cook it the night before and heat it up when I'm ready to eat.
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 red onion, finely diced
400g crushed tinned tomatoes
2tbsp tomato paste
2tbsp red wine vinegar
1tbsp brown sugar
400g cannelini beans
fresh bread, sliced and toasted
Heat olive oil in a frypan over very low heat. Add garlic and onions to the pan and cook until caramalised; about 20-30 minutes, stirring occaisionally.
Pour in crushed tomatoes and paste and cook for another 20-30 minutes, continuing to stir. Add in the red wine vinegar, brown sugar and continue to cook for another 20 minutes. Finally add the cannelini beans and cook for 15-20 minutes.
Serve on toasted fresh bread with sliced avocado, a wedge of lemon and cracked pepper.
Sorry for the double recipe post but ice just been cooking a lot lately and wanted to share.

Hi lovelies! So I am a pretty fussy person when it comes to jewellery. I tend to prefer simple pieces over flashy ones. Something that I can wear everyday, regardless of what
I'm wearing. And it has to be silver. That's something I've always been very definite on. I'm not sure why I have such a strong preference for silver over gold, I just always have.

Hi lovelies! I've been flat out with assignments and uni in general at the moment. So I've really been relying on some chilled out music to get me to sleep at the end of a long day. This is just a combination of the artists I've been tuning in to recently.
The photo's from a more relaxing time too, last year at Woodford Folk Fest, can't wait to head back there soon.
