DIY Easy Choker Necklaces

Everybody's wearing them, yes, 90s style choker style necklaces are back! But have you noticed how expensive they are? For what is often just a piece of cord, ribbon or suede? I've seen simple fabric chokers on sale for £10+ pounds which is just silly when it's so easy to make your own. If you're not sure whether this trend is for you, my DIY chokers are the perfect way to experiment without causing damage to your bank balance. They are really easy to make and can be completed in under half an hour. And you may even have all the necessary items at home already, so what are you waiting for!?

What I'm Wearing | Bomber Jacket

I'm loving that bomber jackets are back 'in' style, they're the easiest and comfiest item to throw on over an outfit. For some reason I'd never quite found the one. Until now. This classic khaki bomber from New Look hasn't left my side this week. It's from the 'Tall' range which means it falls slightly lower (across the bum area) and I find it much more flattering on me than the bomber jackets that gather in above the bum. New Look kindly sent these items to feature as part of their new #ThisIsNewLook interactive platform. Upload a photo to Instagram or Twitter of yourself wearing your New Look buys and using the hashtag, for a chance to win £200! Not to mention finding some quality inspiration from real guys and girls wearing New Look outfits out in the real world...

Travel Photo Diary | Greece

Josh and I went to Crete in June and it's been so busy since we got back that I'm only just getting around to sharing some photos. I had to seriously narrow these down, I' d taken hundreds of photos and don't think anyone would appreciate having to flick through them all! We had the most amazing time, it was a dream holiday, one that feels quite far behind us now which is sad. But we have lots of exciting things going on at home which has kept our minds from wandering but I know soon enough I'll be ready for another sunny holiday. This was my first trip to Greece, a country I've always wanted to visit. We stayed for 10 nights on the island of Crete, which is beautiful and I highly recommend it as a holiday destination. I would go back in a heartbeat. We even spent a sunny day in Santorini after a boat trip across the sea, so in my first trip to Greece I got to explore two islands!

My 5 Most Worn Items

#1 Black Leather Jacket
I've gone through a few black leather jackets over the years. I never buy very expensive ones as I find the leather too stiff and I'd be afraid to wear it and damage it. I'll often opt for faux leather too. This one from Pimkie I've had for over a year and I still think it looks great. They only improve with age.

#2 Mid-Blue Skinny Jeans
I find myself reaching for a mid-blue skinny jean these days. This pair from ASOS fit perfectly, and have a slightly frayed hem and worn look to them which I love.

#3 White Tee/Cami
You can't beat a classic white tee. They go with everything and can be dressed up or down. At the moment I'm wearing this silky cami from Matalan and a basic v-neck tshirt from Zara the most.

#4 Converse
One classic item I've brought with me from my teenage years. I have a few pairs of converse and at the moment these maroon ones are getting a lot of wear but I'll switch between these, white ones and a gold leather pair. I'm going to be wearing converse as a granny, you can never be too old!

#5 Silver Rings
My favourite piece of jewellery is my chunky silver spoon ring that my parents gave to me on my last birthday. And I've worn it nearly everyday since. I'll pair it with a spinning ring from Charlotte's Web.
