Hello everyone, sorry I haven't posted in a while, I've been feeling really ill, unconfident and down for the last two weeks so I haven't been in the mood to take any outfit pictures. I'm feeling rather better now, so I decided to venture out today for a spot of Christmas shopping and to treat myself to a christmassy Starbucks and a Pret sandwich. Once again, my hobo jumper was calling out to be worn, I just couldn't resist. I teamed it with my latest charity shop find, the grandad cardigan, and a pair of blue jeans. Blue jeans! I haven't worn blue jeans in about two years, so when I recieved a lovely email from Emily, the assistant buyer for H! by Henry Holland, who after noticing that I already own a few pieces, offered to gift me with a couple more from the website, I just had to choose these. I can't believe that I haven't worn jeans like this in so long, it feels somewhat weird, but I like it. Thank-you Emily! On a completely different note, I have made this mummy scissors necklace I'm wearing for Roz, another lover of the Victoria and Albert Museum, as part of her blogging initiative she asked me to be part of a while ago. I decided to keep mine rather simple, by wrapping it in some lace I bought at my local car boot sale and an old gold chain I found lying about in my bedroom. Roz recently had a very serious surgery, so this is a little something for her. I wish you a safe recovery, Roz, and sorry it took me so long to post this. Love, Jazzabelle. P.S. I recorded my first video blog today. I was really unsure about posting this as I'm a rather unconfident person in 'real life', but I thought you would like to see me as me. I hope you like it, and let me know what you think!

  1. I haven't worn jeans in ages, those really suit you and never feel bad about wearing the hobo jumper! And I really enjoyed your video blog, it's weird hearing you actually talk haha in a good way though! You don't sound how I thought you would, I don't wanna sound creepy but you know what I mean ha. ( don't take that comment the wrong way ha)It makes me wonder how people imagine me when they see my blog. Wow that was a long comment, I rambled.

  3. AW, how lovely are you!
    I wanted to give you a little squeeze, and tell you not to get down or unconfident. You have no reason to. You look so pretty, great style, and seem such a great genuine girl.

  4. Great video! You look gorgeous and not at all awkward, I'm so jealous of all the stuff you bought and I can't wait to see my charity haul videos (so take that as, I like your vids)! You could wear that jumper everyday put it on every post and I'd never tire of it, it's a gorgeous pattern.

  7. I love your jumper, my boy has one very similar that I am always trying to pinch. Glad you're feeling a bit better again, fingers crossed for some snow coming your way! x

  8. I was gonna say, although they're pricey, american apparel do really small jean/trouser sizes, maybe try there? x

  13. I never get tired of that jumper! And I love your video. You don't sound posh to me, I'm not an expert in english accents but you look so cute! I could never make a video blog, I'm sure I would sound so bad with my spanish accent...
    I'd love to see more videos! It's really great to actually hear you and see you! xxx

  14. I LOVE this! It's exactly how I imagined you to be jazz, it's so strange! It just shows that you're really true to yourself on here :)

  15. I never really wear jeans either, but that's mainly because I can never find ones with a good fit for me. You look great in the photos! xo

  16. AWEEE! Jazmine! You're SOOO cute! I mean, I knew you were by just looking at your pictures and reading your blog, but this video has confrimed that you are indeed super cute and cool. Thanks a lot for having posted it! I LOVE your accent. I'm a non-native English speaker so I can't actually say if it sounds posh. I'd say maybe it does, a little, but in an absolutely non annoying way. God, I wish I could speak like that! Natives keep telling me that I have a European accent but I have no clue what tah means exactly, haha.

    You look like a normal girl, but totally cool, which is nice to see. I mean, sometimes we (i.e. unpopular bloggers with no sense of style, haha) read and see what popular bloggers post and well, I'll speak for myself, I get the idea that they have this kind of perfect kind of life, which I know is not true, but when you look at people that look so cool and cute, you can't help thinking they might live in a side-world or aomething, hehe.

    Sorry for the rambling, I just wanted to say thank you for letting us getting to know you more :). And I hope you're feeling 100% healthy now. If you don't, just think about your trip to Thailand! That's something to look forward to! :)

    Miki.

  21. Double knitwear is exactly what's needed in this weather! And nice work on the necklace, it's a cool idea to mummify things with lace. Keep your chin up, young lady! Don't aspire to making everybody like you. If that happened, you'd be boring. xx

  22. Oh I am so glad you are back, I love reading about you and I have said this a thousand times before but I will never tire of that hobo jumper. You’ve made it your own, and never fail to look amazing wearing it.

    I would love to have a ‘posh’ accent, I can imagine it’s very useful sometimes, you don’t seem shy on camera, you come across very lovely indeed, it was nice to see a little snippet of video from you. xxx

  23. I LOVE you in jeans! They suit you so wonderfully.

    Glad to hear you're feeling better. I've missed your posts these last few weeks. Popping off to watch your video blog now - can't wait to hear that posh accent of yours! :) xx

  24. Glad you're back Jazza :)

    I just watched your video my dear, and oh would you please stop apologizing - you are gorgeous! All the things you hate about yourself are the things that other people like about you the most... Imperfection is the most interesting thing about a person afterall ;)
    I love your voice btw, I get told I sound posh all the time, but there's nothing wrong with speaking porperly now is there, tehe.

    Hope you'll be creating another vlog post soon!
