Hello first post of 2014! How exciting that it’s already a new year, fresh full of possibilities and excitement at what’s to come. 2013 was such a manic year – take a look at my summary here – and I’m sure this year will be just as crazy. Have you all made your resolutions yet? I just want to keep up all the things I started in 2013, especially my new healthy, fit lifestyle, which has helped so much with the pain and illness I suffer from my health conditions, and the beginnings of my career as an author. I’d also like to relax a little more and force myself to actually take days off. Being self-employed, it’s so easy to work all the time, but taking time for yourself is so important.

I’m super happy we’re starting off 2014 with this shoot as Verulamium Park in St Albans is one of my favourite places in the world. I can’t believe we’ve never shot an outfit post here! Callum and I love taking morning walks at the weekend through the frosty, chilled grounds, cuddled up in our warm coats, meandering lazily round the lake and chatting about our weeks and all the things on our minds. It’s our chill-out spot in summer too – and pretty much the whole of St Albans’, because man does the place get busy with sunbathers! – but there’s something hard to beat about a wintry morning walk.

It’s especially nice to do it all cosy and warm in my new parka from Boohoo. With its furry animal-print lining, it manages to hit the perfect balance between an easy, everyday coat and something with a little more detail. I’m also super excited about finally having found a pair of leather-look trousers that actually fit! These skinny quilted pair are exactly what I’ve been after – and if you’ve followed my blog for a while, you’ll know I’ve been looking a looooong time. Until I stumble upon thousands of pounds to buy a real leather pair from Balmain (easy!), these will do me just fine. I love how they look with this cute little tartan top. Total highlander chic 😉

Hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend sweeties. See you next week! x
