my mind forgets to remind me you're a bad idea.

Well, what a week it's been for me! The first week at my new job has been just lovely, and of course ever so busy! I've really enjoyed the consistency of workin' nine to five (what a way to make a living indeed!) Monday to Friday, yet because of my role I've really been kept on my toes which is a pretty perfect mix for me. I have to say it's been quite the novelty having the entire weekend off, however it does mean that after swapping my busy 'work hat' for my 'Jazmine hat', I have been left alone with my negative thoughts a little. General loneliness and a lapse in my confidence have been getting me down, but I haven't let those issues ruin my time off!
Today I went for a lovely wander around Battersea Park with my Mum and Grandma, before ending up in my favourite local restaurant for dinner. After havin' an uninspired week with my style, I thought I may as well dress up a little to make me feel a little bit special. I always feel pretty lovely whenever I wear my chelsea boots and leather look skirt, so teamed with a fitted lambswool jumper I definitely did feel rather sexy and sassy - well, as sexy as one can look in a wool jumper! I've been getting a lot of wear out of this coat recently, plus the Cath Kidston shawl (which I got for half the price I mentioned above thanks to staff discount!) completes the outfit perfectly, picking up the tones from my jumper, coat and skirt.
I'm wishing you all a wonderful week ahead! Don't forget to follow me on Twitter and Instagram to see what I get up to in between my blog posts! Love, Jazmine.

  3. I love how you can take two items that have horrible-looking pictures on their websites and make them look amazing. Wish I had that insight when looking at online clothing
