My 5 things on a Friday


Hi guys, how are you on this Friday? Good I hope — and I hope you have a lovely weekend planned. So many of you are on holiday right now so I hope you’re having a brilliant time.

We’ve had another nice week of the school holidays. The weather has been pretty good to us and we’ve done some nice things.

So as it’s Friday (YAY!) here are the 5 things that I wanted to share with you guys from me this week:

1/ The Handmaid’s Tale.

We have just started the first series and it’s weird but very addictive. Dave also really likes it. I hadn’t read the book but knew that people out there loved it; I’d heard good things. It’s so different to anything around right now, which is good. I’ll keep you updated.

2/ Blog it.

I read a BRILLIANT post by Chloe at The Little Plum blog about blogging. I absolutely loved it. I agree that blogging is an art and that some of us still love to read posts and write them. Her blog is actually one of my favourites (even though we’ve got such different lives) — I always connect with what she says.

3/ The White Company.

I was delighted to work with The White Company recently, producing a blog post for their website. I am a customer of theirs, they’re one of my favourite brands and I adore their homeware and clothing. I was therefore honoured to collaborate with them. You can read the post here.


4/ Inspiring women.

I am going to write a blog post soon regarding the women who inspire me, but this week I listened to a really inspiring and genuinely lovely interview with Dee Campling by Cheltenham Maman — I had to share! Dee has a successful business and online presence and yet is thoroughly down-to-earth and so sensible about the world of influencing. Definitely listen if you want to feel inspired about women in business and growing your brand online.

5/ Clothes.

And finally…here are the clothes and accessories that I’ve got in my online shopping basket to hopefully check-out on a few new things this weekend too. They’re fab — I hope you agree.

Happy weekend guys and I’ll see you again next week.

Love, Jess x

    Have heard so many good things about the Handmaids Tale, and we need something to watch as we have just finished watching Safe on Netflix (which was brilliant). Brilliant news about your collaboration with the White Company, it’s always lovely when you get to work with a brand you absolutely love. Have a lovely weekend Jess x

      It’s amazing Tracey you’d love it – highly recommend it. Bit odd at first to watch (a strange storyline) but stick with it. Addictive! xx

    Really love the H&M trousers, Jess. And thanks for the recommendation of a new blogger because I adore blogs and so rarely get the time to read that I have to hone in on my favourites! I really hope that it’s not a dying art form though. I also love the White Company and you and your little family suit the brand perfectly. Gorgeous article 🙂 xx

      I hope so too – there’s very few people still regularly blogging but thankfully a lot of us still love to read 🙂 xx
