Lust of the week: Warehouse shift dress

You can never have too many shift dresses in my eyes; they're so versatile and it's something you can just throw on and go. I love the neckline and collar of this one from Warehouse - and any dress with pockets gets a thumbs up from me.

So long, London

After two and a half years of living in the Big Smoke, I'm leaving this city I've called home for a move back up North. I love London and I've loved living here but honestly, it's just too darn expensive. 

I turn 25 soon and perhaps I'm having a bit of a quarter life crisis (or I'm thinking practically for the first time in my life) but if I ever want to get myself on the property ladder and out of the circus that is renting, a move up North where prices are actually pretty reasonable is needed. 

Plus, I miss it up there. I'm Merseyside born and bred and I love the character and grit of Northern cities, as well as not being too far from the sea and countryside. 

Next weekend is the big move (I have got a ridiculous amount of stuff so I'm not looking forward to that!) and I have a couple of days to settle before starting my new job so it all feels a bit hectic at the moment. This means blogging may take a bit of a back seat for a while but I'm hoping not for too long - I'll be back down in London for fashion week and hopefully there'll be some exciting events in Liverpool and Manchester I can cover too.

Outfit: Men's coat and skinny jeans

Coat: River Island men (similar)
Top: H&M (similar)
Jeans: Light Before Dark via UO (similar)
Boots: ASOS

Looking at these pictures I am in dire need of some sun...I am all kinds of pale, cripes. The temperature has really dropped in London the past few days so I'm bundling up in oversized coats - this is one I pinched off my man (he comes in handy sometimes!)

I'm a big fan of menswear and think it can look great on women - there's something about the sharp tailoring that you don't find very often in womenswear - and I've been looking at the LC:M shows for a bit of inspiration on how I can incorporate the styles into my own wardrobe.

Lust of the week: Topshop suit

I'm loving full suits at the moment, especially when they're dressed down with tees and trainers. I really like this one from Topshop; it's dark enough to not be too crazy, but it still makes a good alternative to black and would make a great injection of colour into my winter wardrobe.

Review: East London Juice Co.

The juicing craze seems to be taking over the world; a quick scroll through Instagram and almost every other person is trying out some cleanse or other. I've been looking to try one myself - I like the idea of getting loads of nutrients in one drink, but I don't like the idea of not eating any solid food for a few days; I feel funny if I don't eat breakfast in the morning, never mind going a full three days! Plus, I don't think it can be particularly good for your body to do that. 

So when the East London Juice Company got in touch with me to try out their juices, it seemed like the perfect match. The idea with these is that you incorporate them into a healthy diet so you don't actually have to give up the solid stuff (music to my ears). You can choose from a variety of cleanses and they'll let you know what you can eat while you're on the cleanse, or you can simply buy a load of juices of your choice. 

My package arrived just before New Year, so I was ready to jump on the 'healthy eating' bandwagon after the over-indulgent festive season. To be honest, when I got them and looked at the ingredients, I was not looking forward to drinking them; cabbage, turnip, algae and fennel don't exactly sound like they'll make great drinking material. 

To say I was pleasantly surprised is an understatement; it must be the way they blend all the ingredients together but I actually really enjoyed the juices and looked forward to starting my day off with them. The one I was least looking forward to was the 'Beet It' one because I hate beetroot but again, it was really tasty. 

The only one I didn't like was the chocolate one. I thought I would enjoy it the most because I'm a chocolate fiend, but it was too bitter for me and it has a few lumpy bits (I think they're the cocoa nibs) which didn't go down too well.

It's not cheap but it's a great way to get a load of goodness into your body - especially if you lead a busy lifestyle and find it hard to get all your fruit and veg in, or feel like you need an extra health kick.
