When I got back from Budapest last week, I couldn’t quite believe how cold it was in the UK. I’d actually over-packed for my trip with tons of chunky jumpers and when I landed back home in Manchester, I was shocked at how fast the temperature had plummeted.
Layering up for me is never an issue though! I much prefer winter fashion to summer, don’t you? Cosy knitwear, bobble hats and the perfect excuse to crack out my collection of turtlenecks (psh, as if I need an excuse).
Now I don’t know about you but I’m a bigger fan of layering up, rather than relying on one big chunky coat. It just makes more sense to throw on a jacket with a jumper and underlay, rather than cracking out the Patagonia and getting all sweaty on the walk to work. Excuse the TMI, but you know exactly what I’m going on about!
Every Christmas my fella puts a Lush giftbox together for me, complete with a Knot wrap. This year he decided to make one for my birthday too. It’s been a while since then and I’ve made my way through the full box. I generally don’t share things like this, but since we both love Lush I wanted to review the items and share them with you.

Shine theory is the simple belief that you won’t shine unless your friends do. It’s not a crazy notion. When our friends rise, they lift us with them and the good vibes resonate.
Please indulge me for a moment and let me talk about work. I never talk about work on my blog anymore. It used to be something I mentioned from time-to-time, particularly when I went through the horror of job hopping. However I haven’t posted an update since July 2016 (lol) and things have changed considerably since then.
Today, my partner and I will be celebrating our 10 year anniversary. We’ve been together since teenagers when he asked me out on Myspace – romantic, I know. I lived in Blackpool at the time, a long hour & half train ride away from him. He’s supported me through my GCSEs, A-Levels, my degree, ill health, grief, friendship breakups and we’re definitely stronger together than apart.
Having said that, we don’t live together, we have no plans of getting married (ever, don’t @ me) and neither of us really know what the future holds.
