This beaded jacket by boohoo got a lot of attention when I posted a couple of photos on my Instagram account last week. It's been a really popular item on the site, and it seems all the staff at boohoo have it, or one similar! It's quite funny in our office, we're all just waiting for the day when we turn up in the same outfit.

Recipes // Soy Spaghetti Bolognese

Another week, another recipe! This week we tried out a vegetarian spaghetti bolognese, using soy mince from Tesco. We have a habit of using lots of different vegetables in our meals, and then tend to go overboard with the quantities! But this is never a bad thing, as you can always freeze any left overs.

My Top 5 Flared Jeans

If you follow me on Twitter you may have seen my tweet from last week, mentioning that I'd bought my first pair of flared jeans! At first I had reservations. Flashbacks of my 14 year old self, wearing black flared school trousers, came flooding back. Those flashbacks were not helped by Stew's protests. However, after many positive comments on Twitter, I am coming around to the idea. In fact I do love the pair I've bought from boohoo (shown above).

I know flared jeans have been big with celebs this year already, and all those stunning bloggers we all wish we were as brave as. However, I do think they will be popular this Summer so it might be good to order a pair or two now, try them on, and get a feel for the flared look. That's what I hoped to do with my purchase, and it's worked.

Before purchasing, I scouted around the internet for any pairs that I liked the look of, and came across the ones mentioned in this post. Topshop have a variety on their site, in all different shades of denim. Whilst boohoo were the cheapest I found, La Redoute were the most expensive. However I've found a cheeky 40% discount code on, which could be put to good use!

Are you tempted by the flare trend? Do you own a pair? If you've blogged about them, please leave your link in the comments below. I'd love to see your outfit!

Last Sunday, after a tiring and busy week in Manchester with work, Stew and I took a leisurely stroll around Holland Park, soaking up the Spring sunshine. Holland Park was in full bloom with hundreds of tulips everywhere, taking me back to my trip a few years ago to The Netherlands. 

Not wanting to miss such a beautiful backdrop, I seized this photo opportunity, to photograph my new Poppy Lux Octavia midi dress

Recipes // Tuna fried rice

This was my favourite dish to make whilst living in Sydney, because I was often home alone in the evenings, and having to cook for one person is such a chore! So this recipe was my go to when looking for something quick, easy and tasty!
