This year really has gone by ever so fast, it seems like only a few weeks ago I was celebrating new year's with some of my family! I'm now fast approaching my twenty-first birthday, which is very exciting and a little scary, I have to say. Havin' some tough years as a teenager, turning twenty really let me close one chapter of my life and start afresh, and as clichéd as it sounds I really feel like I've found myself in my twenties, so I'm intrigued to find out what the next year will bring. Will twenty-one be the age I find love, discover my dream job or win the lottery? Probably not, but I'm not ruling any of those things out. I'm (often) happy and (somewhat) healthy, and have many years ahead of me to figure everything out. I keep reminding myself everyday to try not to fret about the future and take each day as it comes - so this month especially, I'm determined to have a more positive outlook and do-as-I-damn-well-please attitude. Hopefully my new found carefree nature means I'll be posting a little more than usual too! Speaking of new posts, if you'd like to find out what I got up to yesterday afternoon, do take a peek at mine and my mum's new blog post over on Barri & Belle! Love, Jazmine.


  1. I'm turning 21 this year too! It's scary I agree, but it's exciting!!

  2. such a classic style!


  3. I hope 21 brings you all the joys and excitement! I am turning 22 tomorrow, and I have to say 21 had so many life turning events and realizations for me, it was the biggest year of my life and now things are amazing.
    You have a bright future ahead of you!

  4. I wish you the vest for the rest of this year. Turning 21 wasn't as monumental for me, but I hope that it is for you. Love your shot by the way...

  5. Gorgeous photography! I love this simple outfit of the stripes and skirt- I need a top like this :) I hope turning 21 is everything you want it to be! x

  6. Beautiful as always Jaz, I adore those shoes! Twenty one was an amazing age/year for me, I definitely discovered my dream job, stepped outside of my comfort zone just enough and fell in love along the way. Trying to make the same or similar happen again this year! (:

  7. Such a lovely post. Your style is so beautifully effortless and your photography truly is flawless. It's fair to say I'm always a little in awe of your posts! x

  8. I completely agree about this year zooming past. I have just started my second year of college even though this time last year I was finishing my GCSEs. It is crazy. You also look so beautiful here, you always look so Parisian and chic

  19. Hello Jazzabelle,
    I'm taking the freedom of leaving you a comment because I'm currently working on a fashion-related dissertation for my MSc. I'm doing a survey about the perception of young women towards today's fashion luxury brands, and if you, or any of your lovely reader, could take 5 mins and complete it, it would be of much much help :)
    Here the link of my survey: https://fr.surveymonkey.com/s/2WNTNCY
    Thank you very much!

    Lou ♥

I am kind of confused of this writing, I don't know if you are reviewing the jazzabells website or if you have the right address for it, it is located www.jazzabells.com, please review for they are running a great giveaway with a purchase of any handbag. The promotion is, buy any handbag and get a 6 pack of Bonita Salon Nail Polish, the 6 pack of polish Retails for $24.95 which in return of purchasing any bag that cost $49.95 the bag cost is like $25.00 and they have Free shipping on any purchase of $30.00 or more so this is a great deal to buy a good looking handbag.
