New YouTube channel and amazing socks!

This is just a quick post to tell you all about my new fashion YouTube Vlog account which for some annoying reason is boringly called: Lottie Jones ...

Anyway, on this channel I will be talking about my new purchases, videos of outfits and general chatter about all things fashion based :) here's the link:

The second thing this post is wittering on about is my amazing new socks that feature autumn winter colours and incredibly cute animals!

Summer Shopping Hauls

This summer I got a job, meaning I bought clothes, shoes and then more clothes again...
Okay, I admit it, I'm a shopaholic, but then who isn't if they have money to spend and a love of fashion! 

Today I simply wanted to share with you a few of my summer purchases which luckily came together to create a rather nice outfit! 

Favourite perfume at the mo!

Hat from Croatia, top= Primark, skirt= H&M, Collar= Dorothy Perkins, loafers= Primark, stripey top= Primark

Outfit of today #2

Today I felt like blogging but had no idea what to post so I though 'hey I like what I'm wearing' and so thought I'd share it with you! 

For this outfit I paired a blazer, shirt and denim jean shorts to create a smart casual look. The colours I have chosen also give a summery feel to my look without being too formal. I also added my bronze/gold elephant necklace from Accessorise to add a bit of bling!  

Sorry about my major posing in this photograph, however I think the background and filter I used in Instagram helps to give the overall photograph a calm sophisticated look. 

Please comment on your thoughts about my look and what you yourself are wearing this summer!

A Healthier start from a healthier breakfast

As we all know 'breakfast is the most important meal of the day'. Many people skip breakfast but I personally start to feel quite unwell without it and don't feel I can make it through to lunchtime! 
Although I'm quite into being fit and healthy, I am not one to put off a slice of cake every so often or just eat fruit everyday for breakfast. 

This morning I indulged in some soda bread toast (which is yeast free, so reduces bloating), providing energetic carbohydrates and just tasting damn tasty! However, this toast had a beneficial twist provided by my new favourite Manuka Honey and the unusual Almond butter (similar to peanut butter). 

Lots of supermarkets and health food stores provide alternatives to the average spreads, usually filled with large quantities of sugar. However, the two spreads I had this morning both contain healthy aids for your body. 

Almond Butter has a large amount of benefits. 
It can help  lower the rise in blood sugar and insulin after meals, provide good brain function and can reduce heart attack risk. The phosphorus in almonds also help to build stronger bones and teeth. 

Manuka Honey can be bad for you in large quantities because of the sugar it contains but nevertheless it can help reduce bloating and it's antiviral properties can also help when you detect the first signs of a cold. 

So take it from me, breakfast can be both health beneficial and delicious without tasting bland and boring!
