Crafting with Fever London

I've never been the craftiest of people in the world, but I've always wanted to learn how to be better at it.
I was recently invited to a crafts event with Fever London and I knew this was my one chance to showcase some skills and see just how talented I can be (turns out not so much).

We were met by the very lovely team and some delicious snacks. We then got crafting. We started off by making a brooch or hair clip. I haven't held a needle and thread in years so it took some getting used to and I definitely struggled with the sewing. I did get the hang of it (a few minutes behind everyone else) and pretty soon I had some that could be worn. It also required me to use a glue gun, which I had more fun than I should have!

Next up was making our own jars. This is what I'm most proud of. We had a clear jar which we got to decorate how we wanted. I kept it fairly simple and liked what I came out with. It now houses various of my candles.

We also made very small drawstring bags, which was definitely the hardest to do. I eventually got through it (thanks to the help of a very patient teacher) and again was happy with what I made.

Fever London is based off Oxford Street and definitely worth popping in to, especially if you love your vintage. They've got some great prints and styles while the team travels around to find the best vintage inspirations.

Sunday Lunch

Our large family Sunday lunches are becoming quite the (loud) tradition. This means that I have to keep coming up with casual outfits, but still attempt to look stylish.

I recently walked into Pull and Bear for the second time and I was surprised that I've never been there before. I picked up so much, including this cute top. And we also had some nice weather this weekend, which meant that I could get the new Celine sunglasses out.
I got these from Smart Buy Glasses, who do a large variety of glasses and sunglasses from brands such as Ray Bans, Gucci and Tom Ford.

Also - major love for these heels. They're from the new Next collection and they are the prettiest! I love how a pair of shoes like this can really spruce up an otherwise casual outfit. Absolutely loving the newest Next range. There's a lot of really cool pieces that I'm really excited to buy and wear.

Fearne Cotton for Very

We're definitely full on into the Autumn Winter season. Which means it's time for AW fashion. Now, I'm not a fan of AW at all. I much prefer hanging out in floaty dresses and pretty flats, rather than coats and jumpers. But the new Fearne Cottton range for Very is pretty cool and is making me want to dip my toes into being more experimental with winter fashion.

The coat is so pretty. I usually stick to back coats but I really do like the blue detailing on it. Definitely a nice stand out coat.

And some excerpts from her recent Q&A with Very:

What colour do you think is hot for autumn – and how do you wear it?

There’s lots of yellow in my AW14 collection. Most people associate yellow with summer so it’s nice to mix it in to AW too and have a nice burst of colour showing when summer is fading out.

Every day you’re papped wearing a completely different eclectic look, how much space in your house do you dedicate to clothes and getting ready?

Quite a lot of space. I have a new amazing walk in wardrobe that Jessie has about 3% of so that’s quite good. Not all my clothes fit in there so I have a few wardrobes upstairs in the top floor of the house.
