I’ve never really considered myself one for accessories; probably partly because that would be an extra thing to have to think about in the morning. I have a couple of minimalistic bracelets, a necklace and a pair of earrings which I wear everyday without fail, and I’ve never even thought of adding anything else… That is, up until a few weeks ago when I was first introduced to the Welly Merck brand and the watches they have to offer.

I’m sure I’m not alone in saying that my skin is always at its absolute worst at this time of year. With the colder temperatures comes scaly and even crusty skin (yum), and my face always bears the brunt of it. At the very same time, over indulging in all the scrummy food and alcohol over the festive period has me breaking out in spots and blackheads left, right and centre. Having combination skin to boot makes buying skincare products a bit of a nightmare when you’re trying to combat several issues in one go so I’m usually overly cautious about the products I use on my face. This year however my skin has been particularly bad so I reached for the new skincare range Palmer’s Cocoa Butter in an act of sheer desperation Read more..
Over the past couple of months my mental health hasn’t been up to scratch, and I’ve been dreaming about the ultimate pick-me-up Pamper Party which would make me feel more than okay again. Even just thinking about how I’d spend a whole day in absolute luxury has made me feel a little bit better. With my mental health back on track again, I thought I’d share with you all my ultimate pamper party day. Although some aspects of it are completely unattainable (such as a zero calorie pizza mountain… we all have dreams okay?!) other aspects are just a dream come true in terms of luxury (such as the Addictive Arts Perfume). With some tweaks I fully intend to live out this little dream of mine. Read more..
Jo Malone is one of those brands we’ve all heard about, but not necessarily had the opportunity or the funds to try. That is the exact reason I jumped for joy when I received my invitation to the Jo Malone English Oak launch at the Cambridge store. I am so, so lucky to have been asked to attend this event, and I was beyond excited about it! I’ve always heard amazing things about Jo Malone, and their products are the definition of Instagram-worthy, so it was high time I gave them a go! Read more..
Oh look, we’re in June already. Yep, my timing is completely off but no matter! It was never my intention to post my My Little Box treasures each month when I signed up to this subscription box. My first box was amazing. My May box blew April straight out of the water, so I would be selfish to not share it with you all. The theme of this box is “Friday Night” which I loooove. Since coming home from University last year, I barely go out drinking now, especially not on a Friday night. Funnily enough, when I received this box on Thursday 11th May, I was actually going on a proper night out the next day… It’s like someone at My Little Box HQ just KNEW I would be needing it. As I write this, I am sipping my third glass of prosecco, getting into the party mood. I don’t want to put this off any longer, let’s delve straight in with why this months My Little Box had me grinning from ear to ear. Read more..
Do you ever just find yourself in the mood for baking? This has been me all week, so I decided to get creative and pair my baking craving with a little Easter festivity. A say a little, I mean a lot. Once I started with the Easter themed cake ideas I couldn’t stop! This cake is a really crowd-pleaser and is destined to generate a room full of “oohs” and “aahs”. If you feel like showing off to your family and friends this Easter, or even just doing a nice spot of baking by yourself or with the kids, you’re in the right place! Read more..
I have always been a huge fan of creating lists. Lists about literally anything. Every day I have a to-do list which is ordered by priority, and I also set myself lists of goals to achieve – in a month, a year or five years. This hyper-organised style of living I’m sure isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but I personally love to mark my progress and my achievements and to know that I’m always being my most productive self. At the end of December 2016, whilst others were making New Years resolutions, I decided to compile an Undo List for 2017. Read more..
Can you believe that Wing it with Jade is one year old?? I definitely can’t! It feels like only yesterday I was sat on my bed at University tapping away at my laptop and publishing my first ever blog post. Looking back, I can’t believe how much I have learned over the past year. My blog looks totally different, with more professional photography, a gorgeous theme and content to be proud of. I have learned the importance of SEO and how best to engage my followers through promotion (although I may not always do it as much as I should). To thank all of my amazing followers and those who have supported me in this amazing journey, I’ll be hosting a 1st Birthday Giveaway up on my blog very soon, so keep your eyes peeled!! To celebrate Wing it with Jade’s 1st Birthday, I thought it was more than fitting to share with you all my most popular posts over the last year in my first ever round-up. So sit back, have a cuppa, and enjoy reminiscing on the past year with my blog! Read more..
Did polaroid photos ever go out of fashion? If they did, I never got the memo. All I know is that ever since I can remember I have wanted to cover my room in little square photos with white edges. OutKast obviously added to this and made me want to shake it like a polaroid pictureeeee without actually providing me with a polaroid picture to shake… Rude huh? Unfortunately, forking out upwards of £60 for a bulky Polaroid camera, which I would be too scared to use in case I broke it, has always seemed a bit indulgent for me. I’ve seen that a lot of bloggers have been working with a company called Printiki over the past few months. I jumped at the chance to get involved, especially with the added benefit of having seen everyone else’s gorgeous prints and reviews already… Read more..
Why do people make such a meal out of meal prep? With the right tools you can become an overnight meal prep pro! Unfortunately, I think many people give up before they even begin, assuming that it’s going to be a lot of effort for little return. If you’re one of those people – I’m about to change your life. A bold statement, but I’m sticking by it. I love my food, and I love taking GOOD food on the go with me. I just don’t see the point in buying extortionate breakfasts, lunches and snacks which are not only unhealthy, but also taste naff too. The Sistema To Go containers have been sooooo good to me over the past few months and honestly make my life just that little bit easier and set me up for a busy day at work/ out and about. In this post I’ll be going through each of my Sistema To Go containers and giving you some tasty meal ideas for those of you who are stumped for meal prep ideas or inspiration. Read more..
