My life is one big turtle neck jumper.

Jumper & Coat - H&M
Jeans - Topshop (Joni)
Shoes - New Look

Apparently it's only Autumn but I feel like my body is in shock from the cold, yesterday I popped out with my sister to get a coffee and ended up buying a whole new winter wardrobe, I don't know how that happened, specifically; you know when a turtleneck is just sitting there and it's grey and oversized and it's screaming buy me?! It accompanies me to the till.. I also finally got my new winter coat, I was deliberating which sort of coat to get as I did want this one, but obviously settled for a completely different one. I also want the fur lilac one from Whistles though, *adds to christmas wishlist*. This is just turning into me reeling off things that I want. Leave me a comment and tell me good places to shop for winter bits, just don't mention H&M, i own every grey knit in the place….! Anyway, this jumper is super warm and comfy and I know I will be getting a ton of wear out of it in the coming months, I also find turtlenecks super easy to wear 'hair wise', the very quick hair tuck is super chic and easy and allows me to have an extra 15 minutes in bed, win win.

I hope you have had a lovely weekend, I also hope you enjoyed this post which premier's my living room room and my dad's majorrrrrrrr love for Marilyn haha, lots of love, Jyn xoxoxo

Man Repellers


Sunday, 2 November 2014


So Kylie Jenner has everyone going crazy for the perfect pinky brown pout. I for one, am obsessed. Every time I spy a mauve, browny toned rose it goes into my basket and I am actually really enjoying wearing something that isn't red toned for once!

Although there has been a ton of speculation on what she wears, the most alike is Mac's liner in Whirl, although this is incredibly drying so I have listed all the dupe's I have found… none of them are high-end picks so you can copy Kylie 'til ya hearts content. 


(L TO R) - Soap & Glory - Nudist, Kate Moss for Rimmel - 08, Maybelline Colour Sensational - Velvet Beige, GOSH - Nougat 


Mac - Whirl , Mac - Spice, Maybelline Colour Drama - Nude Perfection

Does anyone else like any of these picks? Have you found anything similar?? 
Lots of love, Jyn xoxox

Cami - Weekday via ASOS
Culottes - Topshop
Mules - Next (no longer online)

There is currently a trend happening, it's called 'jordan wears black and white and takes photos for her blog'. I would like to say I 'sometimes' wear colour, but I actually don't, I should probably switch it up a bit and buy something printed i.e that leopard print, Alexa esque skirt from Topshop which I have been lusting after since forever! (If you're a size 8, you're in luck, here). Every time I check the site it teases me with 'back soon'. What are you doing Mr Green…… Did anyone manage to get their hands on it??

Anyway, this is what I wore Saturday. My weekend has involved black forest hot chocolates from Costa (they are finally back!!!!), seeing Breeze (small plug from me, a v awesome band from Birmingham, find their soundcloud here), drinking vodka so strong I died a little, eating Five Guys, finding out my best pal Gemma chews two pieces of gum, one on either side of her mouth (does anyone else on the planet do that?!), waking up and feeling live my ovaries had been shot at repeatedly (sorry if thats TMI), making pancakes and then watching Peaky Blinders.

So yeah in conclusion, a good weekend has been had. I am now going to crawl into bed with Ibuprofen and feel sorry for myself.  Waaaaah.

Hope your weekends were lovely. Lots of love, Jyn xoxox

New Balance - via ASOS

Once upon a time, the likelihood of me wearing trainers was non-existent. That was until I discovered New Balance, although I do strongly dislike most of them (I am referring to the ones that are fifteen different shades of neon). They are also the comfiest things I have ever brought, I have recently been recovering from blisters caused by my Zara mules (worst.pain.ever) so these haven't come off my feet... Who would have thought it? Do I now need another pair of trainers?!

Lots of love, Jyn xoxoxo

Jumper - ASOS
Jeans - American Apparel
Bag - Zara (old)

This jumper is the softest, warmest, comfiest, cosiest jumper I have ever owned. Like a hug from a bear, or Alex Turner (I imagine that is a good hug). Anyway, I plan on wearing it every day for the rest of eternity. Paired with my American Apparel Mom Jeans, this makes for the comfiest outfit for Sunday errands, blogger error - I didn't get my feet in but I had my trusty Converse on. 

Oh, in other news, I reached 500 followers?! How did this happen? I find it insane that 500 people would read anything I have to say. It is even more insane that I started this blog in 2010, when I was 16/17 and now I am 21 and I am STILL posting about Alex Turner?! A girl can't deny his face OK. 

Thank you x1932084093250 beautiful sassy ladies xxxxxxxxxxx

I think I will call these culottes the ultimate 'man repellers', not that I dress very sassy anyway but I feel like these definitely confirm that fact. I actually love them though, paired with crops or with t-shirts tucked in, I am finding they are perfect for work and after work drinks, raspberry mojitos please. 

How are we all anyway? I am more excited for the Great British Bake Off than I can even explain. I thoroughly enjoy the multitude of puns and Mary Berry. Did anyone see that oriental style bomber-jacket?! Most fabulous lady! 

I will now go and drink a much needed glass of wine,,,,it's been a long 3 days! Lots of love. Jyn xoxox
