Things I Love Thursday

1. Jack Wills. I'm not sure how cool Jack Wills is deemed to be these days. I'm well out of the age bracket that it's targeted to so I'm just not sure. But, I stumbled across the brand again recently as I searched for loungewear and I like it! The prices are high but I think I'll check out their summer sale... anyone know when it's held? July? August?

2. This cake. I have a birthday coming up. I also love photography and own a Nikon. This looks like it was made for me. I love it!


3. Espadrilles. I'm so glad these awesome shoes are in fashion. They totally take me back to my childhood. They're fun and practical for summer. New Look have an amazing range starting at only £6.99. I just can't decide which colour to get.

4. This quote, which can be purchased framed, is just perfect. I often think something along these lines when I look at how my life has turned out so far. Except Asha Tyson said it much better than I ever could.

5. The Lake District. I'm off to The Lakes tomorrow morning for a long weekend. We'll be climbing Scafell, biking through Grizedale Forest and generally enjoying life. I took this photo during my last visit in October. Let's hope the skies are a little less grey this time.


And a few more honourable mentions: The Apprentice ♥ Thunderstorms ♥ Boux Avenue - I didn't want to leave their Trafford Centre store last night. So luxurious and tempting ♥ Evening power walks with friends - free and fun exercise! ♥ Vegetarian curry ♥ Coloured ankle grazer jeans like these.

  11. I love Jack Wills aswell, even though at 26 im probably "too old" for it!Its fab stuff! You can apply online to be part of the JW outlet it takes a couple of months to be accepted into it but there are some good offers to be had! The cake is also wicked! :) Have a great weekend hunni xxx

  13. Hi! I literally just discovered your blog last night and am already a follower. It's lovely! Espadrilles remind me of childhood too and if they are only £6.99 in New Look then I reckon I can get at least two colours! Oh and that cake looks delicious.
    Have a great time in the lakes! Hope it stays sunny! x

  15. Love that Nikon camera cake! Such a good idea. I'm not sure when the Jack Wills sales are but if you sign up to their mailing list it usually lets you know a day or so before :) xx
