Backpacks Are Better In Colour | AD Fjallraven

AD-bag was gifted to be featured in post
Hello friends!

Yes it's been a while, and for that I apologise. Lots has been going on and I for one am happy to now be in February. From the horrid weather we had in Jan which was extra rubbish whenever I went to shoot. I'm finally getting settled into freelance life (and lovin it) and renovations with the house have started up again, so busy busy busy. 

Anyway, expect posts on a more regular basis around these parts, so please stay and be my blog friend! 

Backpacks remind me of school. The "geeky" kids and skaters used to use them the most from what I remember. The other little groups would either not use a bag, use a cross body bag or drawstring one (this totally gives away my age but I'm cool with that). I'm pretty sure I used an array of bags throughout my time, as a new school year wasn't the same without a new school bag. 

Now at 30 I'm still starting a new year with a new backpack. I started this year with a new Fjällräven Laptop bag in green (GIFTED), but instead of holding my school books and pencil case, my backpack now holds groceries, my laptop when I hunt out a nice coffee shop, water bottle, my camera and more! Making adulting and errand running a lot easier. 





In all honestly, I've never had a backpack that's as nice as this (and I'm being totally honest with you). The material is so hardwearing, and comes in so many colours that everyone could find one perfect for them. Since this bag arrived at my door, I recon I've used it 90% of the time because it's just great. I've taken it everywhere. It's come with me to supermarkets, London, Dunelm to buy new pillows (pictured below), and have to fit with the other half as to who gets to wear it. 



Small details really make this bag special. Well, to me I really appreciate the small things.  At the sides of the bag are small slots which fit an umbrella in perfectly, freeing up room in your bag. Game changer for sure! I also really like the small pop stud fastening that holds the carry straps together. Never have I seen this type of thing on a backpack but I love it. It's an extra safety precaution but also keeps the bag looking a bit neater. 

Is that a thing you ask? Yes, yes it is!


Since this bag entered my life, I've had my eyes on the mini bags and the boyf also wants his own one but maybe the size up. When he wear this size, he feels its too small for him. The arm straps aren't long enough for him and it sits quite high on his back. Just an FYI if you're thinking of purchasing this exact one for a guy. 

So, yes you've guessed it, I'm a huge fan of backpacks. If I had to choose a style of bag that I had to use for the rest of my life, a backpack would be it, and this Fjällräven would be the one. For the space and amount it can hold, the protection it gives to my laptop and the just overall coolness. Plus, the colour ranges they have is something I very much take my hat off to. So extensive!




Are you a backpack lover or hater? What colour Fjällräven would you choose? I've got my eye on the Kanken Clutch in collaboration with Acne. It's just GORGEOUS. 

Much love friends
xoxo

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

AD with Yes To Good morning and happy National Cucumber Day! I love cucumbers! There, I said it. I like to eat them, drink them in juices and smoothies, and even like them in my skincare routine. Over the last couple of months I've really struggled with my skin. Getting hard lumps under the skin, and rash like breakouts that were super persistent and refused to die down. I thought about whether or not I was using too many different products and clogging up my skin, or it was just down to stress or something. All I knew was that I had to give something a go and hope for it to work it's magic on my problem skin as it was getting me down. What a day to share my love of cucumbers and my love of the  Yes To Cucumber  range with you cuties. Make yourself a cheese (vegan cheese if you're like myself) and cucumber sandwich and take a read about a range you'll want try!  It may shock you to see an entire range made with cucumbers, but it's actually a

How To Read More & What I Read In May

*gifted items and affiliate links Hi mates, it's been a while!  So, I've had quite a few requests to create a blog post all about how I read so much. Don't get me wrong there are loads of people out there that read way more than me. But I average 4 books a month, however with lockdown in the UK I've been able to rack up my monthly average.  Let's just jump straight in to how I read as much as I do. 1 ~ Choose books you WANT to read This sounds super obvious, however I myself have been known to follow book trends and pick up a book because it's all over the gram, or because my favourite influencer has told me to read it. Doing so can result in books you just don't get in the flow of reading and books you don't want to actively pick up.  Know what genres you like to read. Know what authors you like and do some digging to make sure you pick wisely. Sometimes you will be disappointed with a book that you feel you should of enjoye

Easy To Make Zero Waste Coffee Body Scrub

I'm back on this blogging hype and I'm feeling super inspired to get my space of the internet up and running again. Basically I thought I knew what I was doing in the back end of my blog (theme, settings etc) and for a few months I couldn't do anything until my friends life saver boyfriend sorted it for me! So, lets jump into a cosmetic, zero waste body care at home post and something I'm loving using in my daily shower routine.  It doesn't cost the earth, makes your skin ultra soft, and all you need are things from the kitchen cupboard.   I don't know if you've seen the companies selling coffee scrub or very similar products for around £6 and up, so making something like this thats fresh and uses up a waste bi-product and cupboard essentials means you're saving money as well as saving the purchase of a product!  Items I use in my homemade body scrub: * Coffee Grounds * Coconut Sugar 4tbp * Vanilla Extract 3tsp First things first, the co
