1. Now that there is a bit of a chill in the air I thought It about time to invest in some A/W jumpers. Fell in love with this fluffy cropped jumper from Topshop.

2. Couldn’t resist these pretty oil spill earrings and cute midi-rings, Freedom @ Topshop.

3. This little book caused uncontrollable giggles in the card shop.

4. The great iOS 7 wait….

5. What does everyone think to iOS7? It took 5 hours to download onto my phone! I rather like it though.

6. Another jumper, this time in hot pink. Just the colour to brighten up dull winter days. 

7. These chocolate and red velvet cupcakes were just too good.

8. Teamed my new fluffy jumper with my tulle strappy midi dress also from Topshop. Meal out to celebrate my big bro’s birthday.

9. Lasagne and chip tea. So good I could have eaten it twice.

2. I have a bit of a thing for stars and crescent moons so I couldn’t resist these super cute Topshop midi rings. (Sorry can’t remember how much they cost!)

3. Never before owned a pair of tan coloured sandals, until now. These pair were a bargain from Faith.

4. Got these two MAC lipsticks, Please Me & Honey Love, FREE, yes free by swapping 12 empty eyeshadow pots as part of the Back 2 MAC scheme. Happy Jemma!

Instagram Diary


1. It was such a lovely day this past bank holiday Monday that I took a trip out to Belvoir Castle with the family. We had a wander round the Castle and I spent the entire time sighing “I wish it was mine” if only my dad was born a Duke….

2. The grounds of the Castle are beautiful, its such a fairytale place. If you live near by and have never been, earmark it as your next day out.

3. Been meaning to put together a MAC palette for ages and just never got on with it. My make up bag was getting a little cluttered with all the individual eyeshadow pots rattling round in there so I got myself online (www.maccosmetics.co.uk)  and ordered a Pro Palette and a 15 space insert. And also a cheeky eyeshadow (this one’s Shroom), well it would be rude not to.

4. Costa have started doing chocolate teacakes. They’re new so I had to test them didn’t I?

5. Nails. Bit disappointed with these as they didn’t last long. The glitter is fab but the black chipped really easily. It’s an Essie polish so I’m surprised as I usually find Essie polishes to have good staying power. 

6. All my shadows in my MAC Pro Palette. I actually enjoyed depotting them all, it wasn’t as difficult as I anticipated and I managed to avoid third degree burns and ruining any shadows while doing it! Winner! Only have three slots left so I better get filling them…

7. This House Is Haunted by John Boyne. Current reading material. A Victorian ghost story, right up my street. 

8. New dress. Total bargain from TK Maxx £12.99!

9. Finally bit the bullet and brought a new Apple laptop. Bit of an expense but my old black Macbook was slowing down and packing up in degrees, will miss the old fellow. I went for a 13″ Macbook Air. 

10. If I walk past a bookshelf in a shop I honestly cannot resist buying. Damn Sainsbury’s and their bargain book prices! Enticing me in. Here I have The Light Between Oceans by M L Stedman and The Age Of Miracles by Karen Thompson Walker. Think the Age of Miracles will be my next read. 

11. Little bit obsessed with my new twinkly backlit keyboard. Turned it up to the brightest it will go without shame.

12. Quick nail change. A simple and easy design that looks really quite effective.

Instagram Diary: Week In Pictures



1. Soap & Glory’s Sugar Crush body wash. It smells of lime! LIME!!

2.My Topshop T-Shit bargain. £20 in the sale.

3. This week I’ve been in a ‘I wish I was Megan Fox’ phase. And, when I say this week, read it as the past couple of years. 

4. Mamma Smith brought me this skull print scarf and popped it in a Audrey bag. She knows me so well.

5. Physio time. It nearly killed me this week.

6. My first Costa of the week didn’t happen until about Thursday. Not good enough.

7. Went to see Les Mis at the pictures. Best. Film. Ever. Now on a mission to see it on the West End.

8. Ok so a bag of chocolate Buttons might have happened while watching Les Mis. Might have.

9. Obsessed with this malt bread toastie loaf. Toast never tasted so good.

10. Random night time Monopoly, I beat Mamma Smith’s ass and laughed myself silly in the process. As you do.

11. Two beauty looks I love from the Feb issue of Company Magazine.

12. I umm-ed and ahh-ed over this Topshop dress but in the end it was a no. The material was way static, very annoying. 

13. Second Costa of the week was very satisfying in sub-zero temperatures. 

14.Couldn’t resist these frilly socks. I just like saying frilly socks. Frilly. Socks.

15. This is my last Topshop purchase for a while I SWEAR. Until next week.
