Lemons, limes, peaches & cream

Morning cherubs! I've been blogging a lot this week now that uni is finished, I'm loving it. Over the next few weeks I'll be working part-time as a barista, trying to save my pennies for some unpaid internships I'm taking over the summer. They are both in Junior PR roles which I am so very excited about! 

In the meantime, having no immediate work to do lets me concentrate on catching up with my friends, family, and plenty of time for blogging of course!

Peaches & Cream necklace - c/o Love My Custom
Mint Jumper - c/o Next
Lemon shirt - Glamorous
Leggings - H&M
Chelsea boots - Schuh

I thought I looked like a bit of a fruit bowl in this outfit, hence the blog title, and this post is in part the next instalment of features on new jewellery designers. This one comes from Love My Custom, who specialise in distinctive, statement acrylic pieces. My favourite is definitely this Peaches & Cream necklace, the design reminds me of bunting which is so fitting given the week!

This jumper came courtesy of Next at their press day I went to a couple of weeks ago. I was absolutely chuffed to bits (love and hugs to Hayley for picking the shade) since I have been after a mint jumper for so long! This one is particularly lush, oversized and snuggly, and has been worn and well-loved by some other bloggers of late too I notice.

If you haven't already noticed I've been updating my blog quite a lot this week, and it comes complete with new pages dedicated to an "About me" section, a page on my PR & advertising policy, and a soon-to-be complete FAQ page. There is also a sneaky label "Shop" which is being developed as we speak, but more on that another day! ;)

  7. Great outfit I wouldn't say you looked like a fruit bowl, at least not mine because my fruit bowl is not as glamorous as this outfit! Enjoy your time off before you go into that job!
