A Makeover

Something New

If you've followed me since the very beginning, you'll know that I've hardly changed my blog layout at all since I've started. The main things that have changed are the header and colour scheme, but that's pretty much as far as it normally goes!

But alas, here we are! A brand, spanking new design from the lovely Pipdig (aka the blogger's choice for amazing layouts) and I couldn't be more pleased with it! I knew that I wanted something to show off my Instagram feed and this gorgeous design does just that. It was also chosen with the help of my lovely friend April and it looks flipping wonderful.

It's funny how a new layout can make everything seem a little bit more exciting and clear and I'm so glad I'm able to show off my blog even more now. It all feels very professional, not going to lie! 

So here's to a new chapter in the Hello Miss Jordan saga, and hopefully to lots more awesome content!

Share the Happiness

Cosy By The Fire

I think it's reached that point of the year now where we're saying a sorrowful goodbye to the golden Autumn and a hello to the chilly frost and Christmas decorations. BUT, not all is lost! This means time for cosy clothes, spending time with family and eating way too many mince pies. 

It also means the Fat Face have released their brand new collection for Winter, and oh em gee it's absolutely gorgeous! Think hygge-esque knit wear, adorable bobble hats and all the cute pyjamas, they've absolutely got me sorted for the Christmas season. 

So, I headed out for a fun day with the family to the local pub and for a frosty afternoon walk to explore the countryside and take my brand new threads for a spin.

Lush Christmas, 2016

I'm dreaming of a Lush Christmas...

Back around the end of October, I created a little post all about Lush's Halloween collection which you guys absolutely loved! So I thought I'd do the same with their absolutely gorgeous Christmas products and show you a couple of my faves.

As you may or may not know, I work at Lush, which means I very luckily get given a staff Christmas box containing a few of the team's favourite products to try out! Opening the box was literally like Christmas coming early, and I couldn't wait to give them all a sniff and a try and feel just very clean and awesome by the end of it! 

So, here's a little run down for you lovely lot, just in case you either haven't tried Lush's Christmas range before (YOU MUST!) or you're a bit unsure of what to buy this season. There's so many gorgeous gift ideas, or just opportunities to treat yo' self.

Beautiful Words


If there's one thing I love, it's something personalised. There's just something about owning something that has a special meaning to you and you alone. Even if someone chose the same thing, it would never compare to your original choice, as their reasoning will always be different. 

For me, a personalised piece of jewellery is almost like a tattoo. It's something that can be worn all the time and eventually becomes a part of you and your daily routine. I also love explaining personalisations to people, and I love hearing people's stories behind their choices! 

So when the lovely people at Under the Rose got in touch and offered to send me something from their website, I chose their stunning Silver Circle Quote Pendant which immediately caught my eye as soon as I saw it, mainly because you have the option of having quite a long quote on it.

9 Things for a Pinterest-Worthy Christmas

It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like...

Some people might say that it's a bit too early to be getting into the festive spirit, but for me, a self-confessed Christmas ADDICT, it's never too early to start shopping for all of the festive homeware, candles and silly accessories.

The Tea Files - Grosvenor House

Tea & Cake

So, it wasn't until I looked back on my post history that I realised I haven't done a Tea Files post since MARCH! I can't believe where the time has gone! But, not to fear, I'm back with a brand new, delicious review for all your afternoon tea adoring eyes. 

This time, we went to the Grosvenor House on Park Lane to dine at the beautiful Park Room and enjoy an afternoon tea that not only looked incredible, but had unlimited champagne. My mama was best pleased.

5 Ways I'm Combating SAD This Winter

Stay warm

Time to fess up; I have never liked Autumn or Winter. *gasps!*

I have always hated the leaves falling off the trees, the gradual decent into closing darkness and the need for countless layers that make me cold sweat like a melting ice cube has been shoved under my clothes. The worst part of it all is the SAD. Both my mum and I have suffered from it for as long as I can remember and have often found that escaping to warmer climates during December has been a great solution to the problem.

Pink Frills & Backpacks

Northcote Road

As I was writing the title of this blog post I started chanting, "I LOVE PINK FRILLS" in the style of Sia...and now I've probably got that song in everyone's head. 

So I haven't owned a backpack since I was in year 7. Do you remember it? Hoards of year 7s with oversized (yet actually rather sensible) backpacks knocking their way through the corridors in a frantic struggle to get to lessons and find the right room. The very idea of it has been ingrained in me and for a long time I settled to be the "cool kid" and avoid backpacks at all costs. 

But the cheeky little designers at Radley completely changed my mind when this little babe landed on my doorstep...
