July Favourites 2017


Hellooooo everyone! Soon this is a little late for a July Favourites but I've been a busy bee at work, I've recently moved to another branch and I'm settling into my new job role which is exciting!
Something else exciting has happened... I PASSED MY THEORY TEST!! Finally!!! So I've also started driving lessons and I'm so excited to hopefully pass my driving test and be on the road!
Anyway, let's crack on, shall we?


 Where has July even gone?! How are we in August already? It's been an interesting month and the happiest I have been in a long long time so I'm putting July in my favourites as it's been a real eye opener and made me think a lot more and not take so much for granted, you never know what's around the corner.

My love for converse has come back with a hit, every single day that I go out and do something, I automatically just pick my converse, partially my white ones as they go with absolutely everything! (Picture below is an outfit I wore to a get together at Joe's moms and the converse just made the outfit so much much comfy and laid back) I also wear black leather converse for work as my converse obsession continues. 



I am loving this bag! It's from Primark and was literally £10... £10!!! they come in this peachy nudey colour, black and grey; I love it so much, it can hold just the right amount of stuff inside, it has a pocket inside with a zip, and then two without a zip which are very convenient - this is my everyday bag and it's so much more convenient than just carrying about a bag in the crook of my arm - Game changer!

It also has a pocket ton the front with a rose gold/copper zip, one pocket is real and the other is more for show (the bottom one) and it's a very convenient place to put your keys!



I got new glasses! Two new pairs actually...They're from glasses direct and I love them, you get 30% off as a new customer and you also get emails with codes for discounts which I think is amazing  - I love my new glasses but I just need to get in the habit of wearing them more because I should actually be wearing them right now whilst on my Macbook buuuuut they're over the other side of the room and you know, this girl lazy. 


See you soon!!

New Purchase!

Soo... I may have made a sneaky little purchase without my O/H knowing until a few days after it had arrived.. Quite good going I must say😏

My earphones have been irritating me recently, I have two pairs and the one hurt my ears after a while and the other pair tend to fall out every time I move... annoying..
 So I looked on Amazon for some wireless headphones as I gathered, no annoying wires either! Win-Win situation, am I right?

Of course I chose the pretty Rose Gold colour to match my iPhone and Macbook (Oh so materialistic) but hey if you're going to buy something.. it must match right?! That's the reason I'm using to justify it! Plus it was the nicest colour... 
These are the headphones that I brought: Wireless headphones

They come with a little leaflet to explain how to set them up and what all the buttons do, and what each of the wires are for. Upon opening I did discover that not only did I receive a wire to charge my headphones but also a wire to use them as just ordinary headphones which I was quite impressed with - they seem to have thought about everything!

The earphones can fold away nicely to fit into your bag to store away which is a nice added bonus, another reason which made me keen to purchase these headphones. The sound is amazing given the price of them, the sound given makes them seem a lot higher priced than what they are.

The headphones come with buttons on the side to turn them on/off, skip songs, higher volume, change between mp3 and radio (added bonus, again) and also to accept calls. 



I am very impressed with my new headphones and can see myself getting lots of use out of them too, they're beautiful in colour and sound amazing too. 
I highly recommend if you're looking for some new headphones which won't break the bank.

See you soon!

All New Skincare.

 Soo, recently I have found I'm breaking out so much and my skin is looking oh so terrible, I remember seeing either on youtube or someone's instagram the GinZing facial scrub, so off I headed to the Origins website... and done some damage to my bank account. 
That being said, first thing I added to my basket was the GinZing Facial Scrub which is £15.50 it smells so lovely and really wakes your skin up and makes it a whole lot brighter, one of my new favourites and one which I find myself grabbing for every morning.

Next up is Deep Pore Cleanser With Saw Palmetto and Mint which is £16.50 I love this face wash too! I struggle with oily skin and since using this I can say that has been n o where near as oily as it was, I'm not as keen on the smell of this one as the other one prior, but I still love it.

I was a little naughty with this purchase as I had no intentions of buying it but once I saw how much it should be in comparison to how much it was... I couldn't resist. 
Day & Night Refreshers the whole collection is worth over £70 but as a set is £36.50 so I couldn't resist! 



I haven't yet tried anything out of the set other than the Ginzing Eye Cream as I already have a tub of it, and it is the best day cream I have ever used, it makes my eyes look and feel refreshed and is amazing! it lasts a long long time because the tub is fairly large and you only need a little!

I'm Home!



Guess who’s back, back again.
Jess’s back, tell a friend.
Guess who’s back, guess who’s back, guess who’s back, guess who’s back. 

Yes, okay, I'm a terrible blogger, I come and I go, I use the excuse of 'oh I have too much too do' or 'too busy!' but let's be real, I'm not... I'm just extremely lazy. This must change! I love to blog, I just need to pour my heart back into it and get going again.

So Hi! For those of you who may not know me, I'm Jess! (the terrible blogger) but that will change in time, trust me this time :) anywaaaay, so what have I being doing since I've been away from the ol' blogging life I hear you ask? Welllllll, I moved out! Me and the boyf are now renting our own flat, it's not huge, nor small, it's a good size for the two of us and I loooove it!

I did lose my way with the whole exercising and mission hot-bod but i'm hoping to be back on it soon, because I'm just not feeling confident or happy with my whole body image thing that's going on.. I'll keep you posted on any progress (if any lol).

Hopefully my next blog post will be a little more interesting, see you soon!

25 Facts About Me

This is me and I just thought I'd do a little post to help you get to know me a little better, I saw this circling around youtube and thought I'd give it a whirl myself. Having a chilled Tuesday night with a glass of lime cordial and a belly full of chicken pie and chips and I'm ready to get going, so lets go.


  1. Full name - My full name is Jessica Ann Hayes 
  2. Zodiac sign - Libra but I have heard that they've changed recently so I think that makes me a virgo, although I could be wrong
  3. 3 Fears - Starting this one a little morbid, I'm terrified of dying, I have a loving family and partner and the thought of losing it is such a horrible feeling, I know I wouldn't be here to know any different but you know... My second fear is confined spaces, I panic.. a lot. Last but not least is spiders, they make my skin crawl, although I'm getting better and can now move them myself... with a glass, not my bare hands. 
  4. 3 things I love - Lipstick, Joe says I have too many but of course I disagree, I also love dogs and cuddling up to them, playing with them and seeing their cute little face get excited when you walk through the door, and the last thing I love is my job, it's challenging working within a nursery but it's also very rewarding and seeing how you help children develop... worth all the stress.
  5. My best friend - Joe of course!
  6. Last song I listened to - Olly Murs - Grow up
  7. 4 Turns ons - Being kind even just holding the door open for you, a gentleman, light touches just to remind you they're still there and being tidy both within yourself and where you live. Joe's still working on keeping tidy... 
  8. 4 Turn offs - Being rude, negativity, swearing (Joe!!) and bad breath, it's just a no.
  9. What colour underwear I'm wearing right now - Blue
  10. How many tattoos/piercings I have - I have my ears pierced and three little tattoos, a chinese symbol on the left wrist which means family and then one on either arm above my ditch with mo mom/dad's birth date in roman numerals.
  11. The reasons why I started a blog - Somewhere to write, think, my own space.
  12. How I feel right now - Great actually, I'm on top of the world and very happy.
  13. Something I really, really want - Everyone who knows me knows that we're saving for a house and I'm so excited. 
  14. My current relationship status - Happily engaged. 
  15. Meaning behind my URL - I'm not very creative so just stuck to my name... Boring I know.
  16. My favourite movie - The holiday and my all time favourite - Shrek!
  17. My favourite songs - She will be loved, will always be an all time favourite.
  18. My favourite bans - beginning to like Little Mix a little more...
  19. 3 things that upset me - Seeing dogs strolling the streets on their own, seeing elderly people without any family, my moms tears
  20. 3 things that make me happy - I absolutely love to bake, especially when people enjoy what I've made, also making others happy and seeing a smile on their face and last but not least, spending time with loved ones
  21. What I find attractive in other people - Main one if being able to make me laugh, from day one Joe's made me laugh, even when we argue it ends in laughter.
  22. Someone I miss - My Grandad and Great Nan, I would do anything for one more conversation with them.
  23. Someone I love - I can't simply name one, family are everything.
  24. My relationship with my parents - We have a very good, honest, open relationship and I hope in the future that I have the same with my children.
  25. My favourite holiday - I love going to Weymouth, so many memories, but I also want to go back to Skegness sometime, me and Joe had such a good time for my 21st.
There we have it, 25 things about me! Maybe some time I could do another 25, sooner rather than later? We shall see!

See you soon, Jess xx

I'm A Little Late...

My original plan was to upload this just after my birthday... It's now exactly a month since my birthday... Oops, time got a bit away from me there.

Well for my birthday, which was the big 2 1, Joe booked for us to go Skegness for a few days, this was also my first time on a train so I was a little less than terrified... 🙈🙈

I thought I'd leave my pictures from our mini break here, for memories and somewhere for me to look back and smile... Be prepared there's a lot of posing for the camera and silly faces, but we had the best time and such lovely quality time together, just what we needed.





































We had the best time and loved exploring, our hotel was quite a walk away from everything so it's safe to say our legs and feet were sore, but we did lots of walking to make up for all the calories eaten with greasy food and ice cream! (Joe also vapes a lot, hence the clouds in some pictures!)
