Hello! As I've finished university for the summer now I've been making the most of the beautiful countryside which is not far from m y home. I really don't appreciate it as much as I should! Hopefully we can have some more long sunny evenings in the near future if the weather co operates!

My sister Helen, whose blog you can check out at http://www.blogofbitsandbobs.co.uk/ is currently revising hard for her final university exams! It seems so strange that she is already finishing and will be entering the world of work! After being contacted by Simply Health with the opportunity to visit Botanical Gardens, Helen invited me to take the opportunity and I was very glad to do so! We're all aware of the need to make sure we're healthy but often with busy lifestyles we're pushed for time. It's hard to get a balance sometimes but Simply Heath's campaign emphasises that you don't need an expensive gym membership and the ability to work out for hours each a day! Small steps can be taken to ensure that exercise can be effective yet fun!

Hello! I'm coming to the end of my first year at university (!) and so I'll be able to post more in the next few weeks. I've got some outfit posts today and have realised I seem to have a slight obsession with floral trousers! Even though the sun is out in the UK it's not quite warm enough to delve into 'high summer' clothing just yet. These trousers are the perfect medium as the fabric isn't too heavy. Paired with my new Birkenstocks, which I cannot recommend highly enough, this is my go-to outfit for those 'not quite summer yet' days.

Hello! After all these months, my Zara coat is still my go- to jacket. It's still a little too cold here to go sans- jacket just yet unfortunately! I'm beginning to compile my summer wardrobe at the moment so I'm waiting for the weather to improve. My post today is quite a simple outfit. I teamed a white shirt (hidden under the coat!) with dark skinny jeans and nude brogues from Office for a casual daytime look.

Hello guys! Now that the awful weather we've had in the UK has been replaced by blue skies (!) I've started to turn my attention to spring fashion. It always comes to this point in the season when I cannot wait for the weather to change so I can wear my new pieces! I'm still in love with pastels for Spring 2014. However, I think it's time to the sugary hues up with some monotone prints, as seen in Topshop and Urban Outfitters . Here are my picks for the new season. 1. Zara Blue Mohair Coat, £129.99 This coat is very pricey at £129.99 but it is incredibly gorgeous! Beautifully soft and in a lovely baby blue shade, I think that it's an investment piece and will be great for winter 2014/15 too! I'd team mine with a white roll neck and some black and white check cigarette trousers. 2. Monochrome Cigarette Trousers, Urban Outfitters, £48 I love these black and white check trousers from UO. The cut and print have a gorgeous 60s feel. The high waist and cigarette cut make these trousers flattering and chic. Team with a fluffy pastel jumper and flat loafers.

Hello! Happy New Year! Hope you all had a great time over the festive period. I haven't posted in a little while so I thought I'd share some of my sale picks with you. I'm usually at the shops on Boxing Day morning for the sales but this year I did most of my shopping online, meaning that I didn't have to worry about the items I wanted going out of stock! Jack Wills dress, £34 I'd been looking at this dress for a while and was pleased to get it for half price! I love the pretty tapestry print and the casual smock style.
