Black Friday | Outfit

Hello hello! Here's another outfit post for you, this time a dramatic evening look I wore to dinner and drinks in central London. 

Despite my love of being matchy-matchy, I actually don't often wear all-black although I do love the look, especially now that it's winter. It goes so well with dark lipsticks and eyeshadow, which you know from this post that I'm loving this season. More picture after the jump!

The Lady is a Vamp | Makeup Tutorial

Hello, hello! Here's a nice (if I do say so myself!) wintery makeup look that you might have seen go up on my Instagram page yesterday. I've decided I want to start sharing more makeup looks here on my blog as well as on my YouTube channel.

 Makeup used to be my first love (before fashion took over) but I still really love playing with makeup and creating different looks from subtle to sultry. Winter is definitely my favourite time of year to experiment with different makeup looks too as, since there's no fear of sweating it all off, we tend more of it. That and the pretty colours really brighten up my day! Anyway on to the look. Product details and instructions after the jump!

Hurrah! Autumn Collective Haul Video | YouTube

Hurrah! After some technical issues last night (need to get an external hard drive stat, 6,000+ photos clogging up my macbook memory is not okay!) I have finally managed to get my latest YouTube video to upload - woohoo!

This one is a 'collective' autumn haul video meaning it's a bunch of stuff that I have picked up over the last month or so ready for autumn. Link after the jump -->>

Shoryu Soho, London | Eating & Drinking

Recently my sister and I met up for dinner and drinks in Soho and the food was soooo good I thought I'd share it with you! My younger siblings and I didn't always get on very well when we were younger (I have a sister who's three years younger and a brothers who's a year younger) but now that we're all older and more mature we get along well. 

As I don't live at home any more I don't see much of my younger sister so it's cool that now she's in her 20s too (as of yesterday - happy birthday sis!) we can do more sophisticated things like meet for dinner. It's no secret that Japanese is hands down my absolute favourite cuisine (remember this post from my trip abroad?) so when we decided to meet for dinner the choice of food was a no-brainer.

My Jet Set Style | Travel

With all the work I've been doing on Made by Jade, I'm now playing catch up with my blog posts and so I stumbled across lots of pictures from our summer trip to Barcelona that I have yet to post. These will be going up over the next few days along with a haul video on my YouTube channel so stayed tuned for that! In the meantime, this is what I wore to the airpot on the way out there. 

When I'm travelling I like to opt for loose layers because I'm usually going somewhere warmer than England, (where isn't?) so I like to have the option of instantly stripping down once I land.

I've Been A Busy Bee!

Hello, hello! I'm sorry that things have slowed down here a bit in the last couple of weeks. I've been really focused on creating new products for my online accessories web store, Made by Jade, and updating the website ready for the Christmas rush! 

Most of the new products are up now which means that I can back to doing what I love most - blogging! I'm so excited about our new products. We've added some new luxe leather dog collars, engraved heart tag bracelets and a new Express Shop where you can get some ready made phone cases if you just can't wait for a design-your-own one.

Healthy Blueberry & Banana Oat Pancakes | Recipe

Hi All! Here's a little mid-week pick me up for you. I've been eating these delicious, quick and healthy banana & blueberry pancakes for breakfast every day this week now and it's definitely boosted my week so I thought I'd share the recipe!

They're so ridiculously quick and easy to make and, even better, they're healthy because I've replaced most of the the sugar with a banana and swapped the usual flour with porridge oats for a slow release of energy to last you until lunchtime!

Here's the recipe (serves one)...

OOTD Jumpers and Jewels | YouTube

Hey! I found this Outfit of the Day video from summer which I never got around to posting so I thought it'd be nice to share it now. The A/C in my old office was always blasting cold in the summer so it's actually a rathe warm outfit that would be great for this time of year. Remember to watch in HD but clicking the cog in the bottom right corner of the video and, if you like it, why not subscribe to my YouTube channel so that you never miss a video? It's free and just takes one click here!

More details shots after the jump!

Scenario 1: It's Saturday afternoon. You've been invited to a Halloween party tonight which has inexplicably crept up on you and you're struggling to think of something more inventive that a bottle of Pinot to bring with you. 

Scenario 2: It's Saturday afternoon. You're hosting a Halloween party tonight which has inexplicably crept up on you and you're very close to resorting to dashing to your local supermarket for their 'Scary Fairy Cakes' and some Wotsits (because they're orange).

But wait! Before you despair, check out these super easy and quick Halloween recipes for tasty treats that are sure to impress.
