World's Biggest Coffee Morning

UK Blogger, Liverpool Blogger, Charity, Marks and Spencer, Macmillan Coffee Morning,
There's not much I love more than a sweet slice of Cake & cup of Tea, but it's even better if it's for a good cause. For the 8th year running Marks & Spencer are the official partner of Macmillan's World's Biggest Coffee Morning & have helped to raise over £10 million for the charity. Not only are they holding Coffee Morning events in their cafes they are also donating 10% of sales from the Macmillan branded Tea, Coffees & Cakes as well as Macmillan homeware items. If that wasn't enough 5p from every Cake & Hot Drink sold in their cafes throughout September will also be donated to Macmillan. By fundraising for the charity M&S are helping to fund Macmillan professionals that support people living with Cancer in their local communities.

Macmillan is a charity very close to my heart, the care & support they provided for my Family was second to none in our time of need, which is why I'm honoured to be a part of the fundraising & helping to promote the event. It's an amazing opportunity to give something back to such an important cause, these fundraising events have a huge impact so lets make an even bigger difference this year. Getting together with friends, family or colleagues with a selection of delicious treats is a simple yet really effective way to raise money for a charity that goes above & beyond.

Pop down to your local M&S store on Friday 29th September for cake & coffee & know by doing this you're supporting a great cause, buy a slice & change a life. I'll be attending the Liverpool Coffee Morning to enjoy a sweet treat but to also to take a look at the other fundraising efforts the store have put together for the campaign.

The Transitional Puffa Jacket

When I was Five I had a metallic Pink Puffa Jacket & I wore it every moment I could, Twenty years later (wow I sound old!) the jacket that adds a bit of sass to your outfit is making a comeback in a big way, it's going to be a key piece for your A/W wardrobe.

With Autumn just around the corner the Matalan Red Puffa Jacket is the perfect trans-seasonal addition to your coat collection, it's light-weight yet super snug & cosy for those chillier days. It's practical yet on trend with it being a statement Red colour which is set to be the shade of the season. I have to mention how warm this coat has kept me, I'm always as cold as a block of ice so I was pleasantly surprised to discover just how toasty I was whilst wearing this. It's made me even more excited for the cooler months now, I can't wait to wrap up in my new Winter coat!

I've styled the Jacket in a casual way as that's my usual vibe, I love the contrast the from the black & white Gingham top paired with my go-to High Waisted Skinny Jeans. The Puffa gives the outfit a much needed pop of colour, it creates a bit of 'wow' to the overall look & I've definitely become a convert to statement coats after styling this outfit. It's the perfect jacket to go with a laid back look but I also wore it with a little dress & boots too when I was feeling a bit more adventurous, so there are plenty of ways you can wear this hero piece.  

My favourite thing about this coat? The amount of compliments I've received! This girl has been rocking it & found a new confidence since doing so. It's amazing how trying something that is a little outside of your comfort zone can actually make the world of difference to your confidence. I was a little apprehensive about whether or not the coat would suit me. With it being a more sporty style & seeing the way it had been styled on the model but hey I gave it a go & loved the outcome!

Pug Owner Problems

UK Blogger, Liverpool Blogger, UK Dog Blog, Pug Blog,
I have three squishy little furbabies who take up the majority of my time, whether thats cuddles on the sofa, walkies to the park, trips to the vets or feeding time at the zoo, my life revolves around them but I wouldn't have it any other way!

June Goals

UK Blogger, Liverpool Blogger, UK Beauty Blog, UK Lifestyle Blog,
How are already half way into 2017!? Setting out aims at the beginning of the month is something I really enjoy doing, whether I stick to them is another story but at least I try!

01. Blog Consistently. This is a big one for me as I get so much enjoyment out of blogging but rarely give myself the time to do it.

02. Use my time more wisely. I'm a "tomorrow never comes" kinda girl. I always say oh I'll do that later & do I get round to it? Nope.

03. Create more fashion content. I had a photo sesh with Becca a few weeks back, I waved goodbye to my comfort zone & had a lil pose. Keep your eyes peeled for sassy, stylish shots of me... lol.

04. Continue going to the Gym. I've started working out with my gal pal Carla & I absolutely LOVE it! I actually don't understand why people are so against exercise because the feeling afterwards is so rewarding... trust me & give it a go. My schedule is about to get crazy busy this month (hello six day working week... more on that later!) so I want to ensure I still get those workouts done.

05. Ease myself into my new routine. I start a full time job next week which is going to be a bit of a shock to the system after only having a 20hr contract at my previous job. I'll also be commuting for about an hour each way so my days are about to become super long. I'm scared but excited for the change & need to keep reminding myself that change takes time to adjust to!

What are your goals for June?
