Back in the outfit post game today. A pretty standard outfit, I wear this combo or a similar style quite a lot. I'm really big on sleeveless blazers at the moment as we step into warmer temperatures. Having said that the I did get rained on about 5 minutes before I took these photos so I'm working the frizzy post-rain hair look. I took these photos in Cambridge, I don't know why I rarely bother to take photos when I'm in the city which is all the time but from now on I'm going to try and remember my camera a little more often.

I just have to mention how obsessed I am with my Calvin Klein Bea bag! It's such a cute little size and fits all essentials in it. I've linked to it above, it's actually currently on sale at House of Fraser too so be quick as when I last checked there were only 3 in stock!

I had a bit of a spend today bank holiday shopping and all that so I'll try and pop together some more outfit posts this week sometime. For now though, I'm getting in comfy clothing and whacking on a bit of Netflix!

Lifestyle: Insta Life Update


Instagram Username - @tillyjayne_

I don't think I've actually ever done one of the Instagram sort of posts before but I haven't got round to taking any photos so here we go. I've been crazy busy the past few weeks, I've barely had to breathe! I officially finished University and took my last ever exam (lets hope for no retakes). I can't believe how quick the three years have gone, honestly it feels like I was only just visiting on the open day, life really does fly by when you get older. Now I just anxiously await my results! I've been working in my ~adult job as a digital marketing co-ordinator for three months now. I honestly don't know where this year is going, especially as I'm now full time the weeks are just one giant blur! I can report that the adult Monday to Friday life isn't so bad though!

I adopted another bunny last week. Eeek. Not sure what went over my head! I saw someone getting rid of him on Facebook and felt so sorry for him, they had sold his brother and he was on his own in a tiny hutch in the garden. Once I saw it I couldn't stop thinking about it, so I took him. He's only about 12 weeks and I've named him Arthur. I hope he will bond with my other home bunnies. They have Instagram too by the way - @BusterandBinky_ if you wish to follow them. 

I'm planning a return to outfit posts (it's been a little while!) this weekend, as it's bank holiday I'll have some extra time to focus on blog things. It's hard trying to find the balance when working full time but hopefully I'll get into some sort of routine. Do any of you work full time and run a blog too? How do you manage your time and blogging?

Lifestyle: Ziito Nordic Design

Hello! Another interiors type post today, I promise I'll get back into outfit posting asap I've just been super busy and to be honest quite enjoying the variation! Today I'm talking all about Nordic brand Ziito. The unique interiors brand was founded in 2014 by three brothers when youngest brother Simon made a clothing rack for his clothing in Copenhagen and since then the brand has grown and all three brothers bring their own experience to the table (ho ho ho). You can find out more about Ziito's story here ziitodesign1 ziitodesign5
The brand specialises in clothing racks and clothing solutions, but recently branching into shelving and benches like the lovely one I've featured here! I'm personally really into this style of furniture, there's something so raw and industrial about it.

My lovely bench took just two days to arrive in a raaaather large box. I was completely delighted when I hastily ripped it open to find this gorgeous piece of furniture. The bench is delivered completely assembled which is even better for DIY noob like myself. The quality is fantastic, in fact I'm actually surprised it isn't more expensive. I love the 'By Ziito' logo which is carved into the bench in the corner, it gives it a nice finishing touch. 

If you're looking for solutions for your ever-growing wardrobe (I imagine if you read this blog you're a clothing enthusiast too) then don't forget to check out their range of clothing rails! I've got my eye on the shoe rack right now. Oh and delivery is free- even better!

Lifestyle: A Few Homesense Touches

I love nothing more than spending an hour on a Sunday afternoon having a good mooch in HomeSense. I don't know how many there are across the country but I assume a fair few! My local HomeSense in Cambridge is a treasure trove of one-off furniture pieces, a million cushions and other various home additions. I love buying bits and bobs for my room, and potential future house. I never leave empty handed and it's where I've bought a lot of my interior pieces. Last weekend I headed over with my mum to check out some of the new summer stock.

homesense1It's no secret I'm a big fan of copper accessories, they've become quite a big trend within the blogosphere at the moment with an abundance of copper loving on Instagram. I actually had in my mind that I wanted to pick up a copper terrarium for one of my cacti and I found just that!  homesense3I spotted another gem, this vintage style copper cocktail mixer. A perfect addition for the summer months, I'm planning a graduation BBQ at mine this summer so this will make an appearance! I can't wait to get mixing up some mojitos.
homesense2 As a big lover of stationery, the notebook section in HomeSense gets me almost as excited as I do when I step into Zara. I was drawn towards this leather style journal, and it was less than £5! At the moment Home Sense are going all out with their amazing summer stock (so many big outdoor cushions!) and have lots for the garden, I picked up this white ceramic pot for my palm with a leather strap, the minimal look is right up my street. 

So if you're looking to spruce up your abode this summer I'd recommend a little stroll down to your local HomeSense. Let me know if you post any hauls I love seeing what gems people find!
