Travelling with my Eastpack!

Rucksacks are finally cool again yay! Being a woman who always feels the need to carry everything (with exception to the kitchen sink) in her handbag the resurrection of the rucksack came with a cheer! Purely down to the even distribution of weight being carried around and hey a rucksack has more room than a clutch bag to carry ALL those essential items! In today’s post I wanted to discuss

Festival Wellies by Aigle you won’t want to take off!

It’s the famous Glastonbury weekend and after watching Adele on tv last night yeah, I’m feeling a bit of FOMO! Music, friends, and nothing to worry about apart from who to go with and what to watch next sounds like an inviting option…oh, and the mud! Yes, you read right – mud! So, in order to correct this mud-less low, I decided to go and take the dog for a

Christmas at Not On The High Street

  It’s November and officially the acceptable time of year to start getting excited about Christmas! The Central London Christmas lights have been turned on, the Christmas window displays are in full show, and supermarkets stocks are piled high with mince pies and mulled wine. If you’re someone who likes to be super organised (as much as you can be), then it’s time to start thinking about Christmas gift ideas

Liberty in Fashion the exhibition

  On a rare weekend kept purely free for a bit of me time, I decided to venture to the Fashion and Textile Museum to immerse myself in everything Liberty! Liberty and its iconic prints have firmly been a part of the British fashion scene for the past 140 years. Founded by Arthur Lasenby Liberty, the company started off as a warehouse importing textiles. It later expanded into areas such

Joules design your own wellies competition

Do you like the rain? I don’t! Apart from the obvious fact that we need rain for the environment and for our sheer ecosystem to exist, rain is merely a hindrance to my hair (the dreaded frizz) and to my fashion sense! No one looks good soaked to the bone. The one silver lining that I tend to cling onto on rainy days is that I get to show off

The Innocent Big Knit at Oliver Bonas

Way back in August (crazy as it seems), I gave you all an exclusive Christmas preview of some of the new Oliver Bonas AW and Christmas ranges launching in store from early October that you can read here. One of these so called launches was the wonderful partnership between Innocent Smoothies and the Charity Age UK. Slightly confused about what I’m talking about? Then here’s a little picture to remind

Oliver Bonas Christmas Preview

I’m the kind of person that loves to shop and give cards and gifts for every occasion. Whilst this can become quite an expensive affair, it can also become a logistic nightmare. In cases like this it’s best to have that one go-to brand or shop that can fulfil all your shopping needs and save your partner from moaning being dragged around 5 shops. And that store folks is Oliver

Mrs J’s Advent Christmas Gift Guide Day Four

It’s day four of my advent Christmas Gift Guide and the temptation to eat all the chocolates in the Star Wars team advent calendar and replace it with a One Direction Advent  calendar is only just a little bit too tempting! Feeling like a slightly naughty child, panic starts to set in as I remember that buying gifts for our niece and godchildren is something that me and Mr J

Baby Shower Options

So this Sunday saw the traditional activity of women gathering together to share their words of wisdom with the new mother to be! Mr J was quick to mock this union of women stating that it is clearly invented by the Americans to feed a consumerist society.  What he didn’t realise is that whilst the term ‘Baby Shower’ is a 21st century invention, the idea of showering the mother to
