Outfit: A Valentines Look With New Look Menswear

Charlie wears: New Look Bomber Jacket* / New Look Suede Shoes* / New Look Knit* in collaboration with New Look Menswear

A welcome change today, I found myself behind the camera rather than in front! I asked (more just told) Charlie to take part in a Valentines campaign with New Look 'A Perfect Look for a Perfect Man' where I got to style him with a few key pieces for the ideal date night look. I was quite pleased with how my choices turned out, and both myself and Charlie were really impressed with the quality of the pieces. 

You can tell I put together this look as it's mostly umm black, but I added a splash of colour (kind of) with the camel jacket, which was a big hit with Charlie. I also chose a roll neck as I think these look perfect underneath a bomber style jacket. The lace up suede shoes are ideal for a semi-formal look like this, not too overly dressy but smart enough to wear to a nice restaurant. 

I asked Charlie what he thought of the look I styled for him:

I like how smart look the shoes are, as well as being very casual they're also suitable for all occasions whether it be a posh dinner or down the pub. The jumper is a great fit and very warm! As for the jacket, this is my favourite part of the outfit. Great colour and goes with almost everything, my kind of jacket.

New In: Acne Studios Jorie

Soo, every so often I like to make expensive, unnecessary purchases that bring me brief happiness and this is one of them. Ever since Acne released their new 'small leather goods' collection I've been eyeing them all up, deciding between black or white and phone case or cardholder. Oh the decisions.

So as you can see, I opted for this little beauty. It's made to fit an iPhone 6 and I also use the front compartment to hold cards and notes if I'm carrying a smaller bag which doesn't warrant a large purse.

I'm also hoping that due to having to take the phone in and out, it might make me look at it less, I'm trying to have a little phone detox at the moment. I don't mean a break by any means, rather just cutting down the amount of times I check it per day from 850 to 600.

Outfit: Native Youth Padded Bomber Jacket

I'm pretty much obsessed with this Native Youth bomber jacket. I've been looking for the perfect padded jacket lately, mainly because I'm sick of being cold but also one that I can take to Berlin. This ticked all the boxes, I love the longline shape and bomber style plus it's currently on sale! 

I took it back to 2003 this week and bought these Reebok classics. I don't know if any of you guys had the same school obsession with them, but when I was in year 7 (about 12 years ago ouch) the all over black reebok classic was the shoe to be seen in. I didn't think I'd be heading back there anytime soon but I couldn't resist, and I forgot how comfy they are. It's like walking on pillows. 

I had my usual mooch in Cambridge this weekend, but not to much avail. As it's payday I wanted to treat myself to a few bits I've been after but the stock in Cambridge is always so disappointing. I think only the London stores get the good stuff, so in my huff I came home and just ordered everything online instead. I did pick up a few homeware pieces though, I might share these on here as my last homeware additions post went down quite well. 

More from me soon!

Lifestyle: Flashsticks Review


flashsticks review 5 flashsticks review 4 flashsticks review 2Flashstick Notes* 15% off with code 'TILLYJAYNE15'

So a few weeks backs in my post about New Years plans I mentioned how I wanted to pick up a language or continue learning french. Coincidentally enough, Flashsticks a new start-up business from Birmingham, got in touch not long after about their language post-it notes and unique app. 

So a quick backtrack, I really enjoyed french at school, it was always my favourite subject and I did particularly well in it. But having left to study business and eventually fashion marketing, it got pushed aside in favour for marketing theory and trying to get the hang of photoshop. I've been meaning to pick it up again, or at least make the first step, since graduating and waving farewell to uni. So I jumped at the chance to review these Flashsticks.

I have both beginner and intermediate here, as my current knowledge is probably a little more advanced than beginner but there are always basic words you forget about or realise you don't know! I actually love the post-it note designs, they're eye-catching and the images are a nice touch. I find I'm quite visual so it helps to stick around in my head. I actually used a similar learning technique when I revised for exams, I would have 150 post it notes stuck on my walls!

Every few days I've been mixing up the notes I stick on my wall, and it's really helped to get back into the zone of learning a new language, helped to refresh my memory and teach me some new words. They're also colour coded too, so you have blue for masculine words, pink for feminine and then verbs in green and so on. 

As part of the learning process there's also the Flashsticks app, which enables you to not only scan your Flackstick notes but also scan objects which will then translate into your chosen language for you. I've been testing it out and it's very accurate, I was quite amazed, technology these days huh! You can also test yourself with various challenges on the app, it's great for on the go, a way to make your commute more productive!

I'm definitely going to continue using my Flashsticks along with the app, and I would 100% recommend them for anybody wanting to start or pick up a new language. The post it notes start at just £4.99 and you can get 15% off with my exclusive code 'TILLYJAYNE15'.

Au revoir!
