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

Current Cruelty Free Skincare & Lip care Gang | AD

*This post features an advertorial with P'URE Papaya Lips Hi, hey, how are ya? It's been a while I know, and I'm sorry. I needed some time to settle into freelance life (which, I'm loving btw), and just some time to get into the new swing of things you know.  So anyway, that can be saved and chucked into a separate blog post (let me know if you fancy that).  Over on Instagram I've been sharing the odd product here and there over the last few months regarding skincare, as my skin went super dry as soon as the seasons and weather changed. My skin was flaking it was that dry, and my lips were red raw and went without lipstick as I couldn't bare to put anything on them at all. Thankfully I ended up creating a nice little routine....more on that in a bit, and found some new must haves for hydrating and softening the skin and lips.  Lets start from the bottom to the top ey? I like being awkward! And, before we get stuck in, these are all products

Cruelty Free Living Products And Where To Find Them

A super sunny good day to you beauties!  Welcome to my first of many cruelty free living posts I've wanted to do for such a long time now, and I've finally planned them and can't wait to hopefully inspire some of you to make a simple change to support the unfair testing and use of animals. The most common thing I hear back from people is "it's going to be expensive" or "that's so much effort", well it's actually not and the only effort you need to put in is to just pick up a different bottle *holds head in hands. It's that simple.  Over the last two years I've been gradually replacing items in my home with cruelty free alternatives to get to the point I'm at today. The majority of you guys like me, go to one store for the bulk of your weekly/monthly shop, however I've grown to enjoy searching for cruelty free products and options so am now a bit of a shop hopper.  When I think of the places I like to hit up th
