It’s happened – I have finally started properly kitchen planning. Sure, I had an idea of what I wanted a year ago but it’s only recently that things have progressed past the IKEA kitchen planner! Our kitchen at present is just hideous.

I always maintain that this is a personal blog, so I’m going to take a break from beauty today… I’ve had a silly amount going on this week; I always think I’d love to be one of those jet-setting celebs, but the reality is I wouldn’t last a week.

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m so ready for autumn fashion. I may hate the cold, but there’s something so appealing about stylish coats and winter boots… I need to update my wardrobe, so I’ve been going crazy searching the ASOS site. You can spend half the day on the site, and have only covered shoes – there’s just SO much stuff. I took the liberty of compiling my ultimate ASOS autumn basket, and it’s just perfect –…
