Happy Easter!

It’s Easter Sunday!! Hope everyone has enjoyed drinks and as many Easter eggs as they could handle in one sitting!

I love Easter as it always brings my family together for a slap up meal and a good time, just like Christmas. This year I’ve spent it at my uncle’s in Hexham – which is excellent (or should I say eggsellent) news as he is a fab cook!

After a busy day of attempting to hit a golf ball at the driving range and constant car park space hunting in Tynemouth yesterday with James, I’m happy to have had a comfy and relaxed Sunday with the family. 

I decided a loose fitting top was a must, so I went for my trusty stripy knit top  – anything comfortable and stripy is good in my books! I paired this with some skinny jeans and my hand-me-down Barbour, thanks the the good ol’ British weather!

The meal was cracking – as always – as we had lamb, potato gratin and broad beans followed by as many cakes as we could possibly fit onto the table. We followed our feast with a soggy walk to Hexham’s daffodil fields and back to the house – it’s safe to say I should have remembered to at least bring a hat with me as I got totally soaked!! (So excuse my very wet, very scruffy dry shampooed hair)

But despite the diet being in ruins and catching a sniffle from the rain, I have had a brilliant Easter and I hope everyone else has too!

New Job!

Finally- after months and months of job hunting and months of disappointment- I have FINALLY landed myself with a new job in the area I want to work in most, fashion retailing!

Starting last Thursday, I became a sales assistant at Crew Clothing Co. and I honestly love it! I’ve always been so interested in fashion and after how ~horrific~ university went I’m happy to be starting fresh. Though just part time- for now at least ;)- I can’t wait to see where this takes me.

Crew Clothing Co. started off as a small business in Salcombe selling rugby shirts but quickly expanded and is now a fab, smart casual company which echoes Jack Wills and Ralph Lauren (in my opinion at least) and filled with stripes.

It’ll beat working with feet any day- bye frumpy granny shoes! Oh, how you’ll not be missed!!

First day at Crew vibes!!
