It's been a while since I simply said hello.

There have been an assortment of beauty and style posts lurking over the past few months, but I haven't said a proper hello in a long time. 

In the short space of summer, quite a lot changed and life threw a few curveballs. Which at the time seemed pretty horrendous but really looking back now, it makes me want to roll my eyes into the back of my head and say hang on pal, it's gunna be fine. Which it is. Because of course life has a way of working out like that. 

So hello, here are five things to read on a Friday. 

1) Ch-ch-changes

To keep things short and snappy, here's a little recap of how my summer went down. Incase you missed my internal monologue on twitter:

Suddenly found myself without a job.
Started panicking. 
Panicked a bit more. 
Decided to learn to drive with new found free time (didn't happen).
Began to miss my train commute - WTF. 
Scheduled in multiple gym classes with new found free time (this half happened).
Somehow cancelled out above point by eating out way too often.
Accepted a brand spanking new dream job, all within a month of loosing previous job.
Took a mini break to Cornwall with Matthew in a 7 hour car ride and ate multiple cornish ice creams in one day. Living my best life. Then my family whisked me on a weekend break to Dublin, where we basically did a drinking tour of the city. And I ate 10 chicken wings in one sitting.

2) Then onto the good stuff

Started dream job in a higher position with a super cool company. So far there have been fresh, new challenges and a trip to Dallas in my second week (!) to meet my lovely new team. That means Sephora happened. J Crew happened. Watch this space.

3) Jetting off, again

Remember that time I spent 8 hours in a mini bus to Amsterdam back in January and saw like, zilch of the city? No, me neither. I have mentally blocked out that shit show. I am however jetting off on another city break (this is my life now) back to Amsterdam where Matthew and I will be staying at the swish Hoxton hotel to celebrate out birthdays in October. We blagged 25% discount by snapping up an offer on their email newsletter and now I am avidly planning our trip. Recommendations kindly appreciated.

4) Another year bites the dust 

It's true, I'm nearing the end of my twenties. Not too close! But close enough for people to bunch up their noses and ask why I'm not yet a house owner or married. So for number quatre in my 5 things and an answer to their confusion, let's leave this here and let the tumble weed roll. 

5) You need this...

Zara blazer in your life. The one I'm wearing above.

Check blazers might be all the rage this season, but really they are ugly as hell and they'll be in your local charity shop by February.
