Perfectly Pink in Paris' Le Parc des Buttes-Chaumont

Every now and then we stumble across those magical pieces we see and just know that we have to have. It doesn't matter what you came into the shop for,  nor what your current bank balance may say. Beg, steal or borrow, you will walk away with said item. 


How delightful then, when we flip the tag over with baited breath, only to see that the price is nothing short of a steal and the beautiful item won't cost us a kidney or a criminal record. Those are the moments I love to share on Jade With Envy.

What Notting Hill Carnival Is Really Like

I was going to write a post about mindfulness this bank holiday to get us all mentally prepared to return to you-know-where tomorrow but I thought, 'WTF Jade? No one wants to think about that today!' so I settled on writing about a massive street party instead - cue cheers and whooping. Let's talk Notting Hill Carnival.



What really made me want to write about the Carnival actually was the déjà vu of inviting friends to come along each year only to be met with a resounding chorus of, 'it's not my thing' from people who I know for a fact have never been. How can you know that you don't like something you've never tried? Having been to 'Carnival' many times since I was a small child and having been friends with these people for several years, I can say with much confidence that actually Carnival is very much 'their thing' because I've witnessed them make day drinking, dancing in the street and general merriment, often with total strangers, 'their thing' many many times. However for some reason, as soon as there's a cultural element with which they're not entirely familiar involved suddenly it's not 'their thing'. Well sorry but I don't buy the bullshit.

Neverland London | A BYOB Bar With A Twist

My social calendar has been off the charts this summer with weddings, birthdays and BBQs and whilst that fills me with joy, it also simultaneously empties my pockets. At these times I would usually retreat to my home, instead indulging in DIY drinks on my balcony until the pennies had replenished and I could afford to venture out into the city again. Not any more.


 It seems now BYOB isn't just for your best mate's BBQ and I couldn't be happier. Bring on the £5.50 Tesco prosecco, I'm heading to Neverland.

You Are What You Wear... in Paris

When I found out I was going to Paris for a long summer weekend my first thought was 'ohh the amazing outfits I can wear!'. 


Actually, thinking about it, my first thought was 'Oh the amazing carbs I can eat!' followed soon after by 'oh how will I still fit into all the amazing outfits I can wear?'. Luckily for me I somehow managed to enjoy both.

The Perfect Wednesday Night With Mary Kay

Last week I had the pleasure of attending the Mary Kay #PinkPositive Party in London's beautiful Dalloway Terrace with my fave, Jodie. It was the perfect midweek cocktail of pretty beauty products, delicious drinks and, most importantly, great company. Shout out to their girl Deborah who was hilarious, engaging and everything you want in a PR.



On arrival we were greeted with boujee rosé wine slushie machine cocktails made to order and I knew it had been worth the rush hour schlep across London.

Paris Is Always A Good Idea

I'm so tired I'm having to fight to keep my head from lolling onto my keyboard. I'm going to Paris weekend and I have so much work to catch up on in the meantime that I'm almost finding it hard to get excited to go. Almost. But not quite! 



This moodboard is definitely helping to lift my spirits. It's a mix of the tone of just some of the shoots I'm hoping to get done whilst I'm out there just to give you a little sneak peek! Click 'Read More' to see the rest of the board and shop the clothes I've pinned straight from my Pinterest board.
