AUTUMN JUMPER HAUL Skip to main content


Since the academic year has recently started I thought I'd do a quick post to share some tips that I used or wish I knew at the time! I often found myself feeling pretty prepared and motivated at the start of the year but hopefully, some of these will help that to continue all year round, or more at least!

Attitude and Behaviour

Put in the effort now - when you get further into the year you'll thank yourself for putting in the time to learn everything properly, especially when it comes to revision as you'll already have materials to look back at.
> Mistakes are good - it can be disheartening when you make mistakes or don't get the feedback you hoped for but learning from them is a really productive and useful way to help improve.
> Strengths and Weaknesses - everyone has things they are better at and things they may struggle with, finding that out now and setting time aside to focus on the things you find harder will help reduce stress. You could also study w…


It's finally that time of the year when everyone gets their jumpers back out and I have to say, I have been waiting!! I thought I would try something new today so here is a sort of Autumn haul thingy of some of my favourite jumpers. None of these jumpers are recent purchases so you can't get an identical match, however I have done some nosing around to find something similar!

The first jumper is actually more red rather than purple toned in real life but burgundy is one of my favourite colours to wear at this time of the year. I picked this up in New Look for around £15-£20 a couple of years ago and it has become a wardrobe staple for me. Obviously you can't get the same one but this Pull&Bear one on Asos is pretty close and it's only £19.99.

This next jumper is much lighter than the rest and is definitely great around the start of Autumn when the temperature starts to drop. As it is much thinner it is also easy to wear to layer with coats, plus white goes with everything so you really can't go wrong! I got this as a Christmas present so I'm not too sure on the price, however I do know it was from H&M. Unfortunately I couldn't find any white boxy style jumpers that were similar, however this one from Pretty Little Thing doesn't look to thick and chunky!

My grey sweatshirt is always something I grab if I need an extra layer over a t-shirt. I really like the text on the front as it's something different from the other typical knitted jumpers, I seem to remember them being really popular a while ago and I think I must have got mine around then too. This particular one was from New Look but Pull&Bear currently have some really cool sweatshirts, ranging from around £20-£30, that have different text/logos on them.

So far all of the jumpers have been on the lower end of the price range, this next one from Jack Wills however is more expensive at £89. You can definitely feel the improvement in quality and it keeps me pretty warm so it's worth the price in my opinion! Especially if you need to invest in some more jumpers this autumn! Check out Jack Wills for the jumpers they have in for this season.

I bought this final jumper from Primark in December last year because I loved the dark green colour, it's perfect for the festive season! It's a bit longer than the others so would be great to wear with leggings and hey, you can't get much comfier than that! This was £7 but you can find some slouchy, oversized jumpers for similar prices from Boohoo -  I love their knitwear range because they have so many different styles and colours so I'll definitely be purchasing some soon!

I have a load more jumpers that I also love so I could definitely do a part two to this over the coming months!

Christmas is approaching so today I thought I'd share my gift guide to hopefully give you inspiration for the people you are buying for this year. I am going to do a combination of gifts for her, gifts for him and then gifts for anyone!
 Knitted Jumper - Perfect for this time of the year and something most people would appreciate. Head over to Asos for a huge selection!  Jacket - Another one that is useful for the colder weather, personally I'd like a denim jacket this Christmas but you could also go for a leather, smarter or bomber jacket. Have a look on Topshop for some inspiration!       
 Shirt - This is definitely something I know my Dad would appreciate and would be a great present if you tend to dress smarter on Christmas day! There are some great choices at John Lewis and Marks and Spencer.  Slippers - Another ideal gift for this time of the year and so cosy, Next have some great ones!  Converse - Another one that is on my list this year, basically a wardrobe staple b…


Last Saturday I turned 19 and to celebrate, my boyfriend kindly paid for a trip to London. So on the Friday we morning, we made the journey from our little town to the busy streets of city life. The journey actually went really quickly, (around 2 hours) though we were both very hungry when we got there!

We stayed in The Grange St. Pauls hotel which was absolutely gorgeous and I would 100% recommend it to anyone. The room itself was a perfect size - spacious but still felt cosy and the bed was super comfortable, something I was very appreciative after the long day! However my favourite part and one of the reasons I chose this hotel were the leisure facilities. The pool itself was amazing and it was so nice to be able to use it on the Friday afternoon and again on the Saturday morning before we checked out. There was also a jacuzzi, sauna, steam room and a gym, as well as a spa, which you could book various treatments at. Unfortunately we didn't really use too many of these as most…


March is always a pretty busy time, it's known as the 'birthday month' in our family because between the 1st and 21st, 7 of us have celebrated our birthdays! This means that there is a lot of family time, a lot of presents and a lot of cake which is a pretty good mix - plus there are loads of things I've been loving this month so I'll get started!
Something I had to mention in this monthly favourites was the rather strange weather we had! We'd not had any decent snow since 2013 and then we had multiple snow days in March, so I think it's fair to say that Spring was delayed! I actually really like the snow, it's so amazing to look out at, especially when it is untouched! Although I did slip over on the ice, straight on my that wasn't as great!


This month I have worn my denim jacket constantly, I don't know how I've lived without one for so long! Besides the random snow days, we've definitely had a few milder and m…
