6. What advice would do you have for people who are just starting a blog? 
High Street Jules: I would advise you to just write about what you love! As long as you love it everyone else will too!
Bones Blogger: My advice would be to create a blog for all the right reasons, don't just make one because everyone else has one or that you want free clothes. Create one because you love to write and think that sharing your photos and opinions with the world would be amazing.
Pretty Dresses in the Laundry: Just give it a go! Start one up and have a play and work out what works for you. There's a lot of tips in my new book, it talks a lot about starting a blog.
Emily Jane: Be yourself, decide on a specific blog theme, use social media, interact with other bloggers and have fun!

7. What's your favourite season and why?
High Street Jules: My favourite season would be winter and my reason would be I love snuggling up with a hot cup of cocoa to the fireplace. Also the style in the cooler months are too much cuter!
Bones Blogger: oooh good question. My favourite season would have to be... Autumn, i think its because you still have a bit of summer clothing but you an shake it up with some new winter pieces.
Pretty Dresses in the Laundry: Spring I think! I'm not a fan of the cold.
Emily Jane: My favourite season would have to be Summer, because I absolutely love the warm weather, the beach, the school holidays and Christmas! It's the best time of the year.

8. What are your favourite clothing items at the moment?
High Street Jules: My favourite clothing items at the moment are knits, ankle boots and boyfriend jeans.
Bones Blogger:
My fur cape from country road
My pink jeans from Saba
My fedora from Seed
My tony bianco Boots
and My tassle oxfords from vanishing elephant

Pretty Dresses in the Laundry: This time of year is a little awkward, end of Summer clothes are always the worst! Dresses are probably my favourite thing at the moment, I can't narrow it down to one though.
Emily Jane: My faux fur coat from The Lost Girls and my black polka-dot dress from the OP shop.

9. Where are your favourite place to shop?
High Street Jules: I have way to many places that I love to shop at! Though my favourites would be sportsgirl, H&M, ASOS, forever new and david jones.
Bones Blogger: I always find this so hard to answer. I really don't have any shop in particular as i have a very wide range of clothing, i like sass and bide, then target ! its such a big gap !
Pretty Dresses in the Laundry: Everywhere! I'm not to fussed on particular stores and brands. I'm loveing Verge Girl and Hopscotch Boutique at the moment, and as always, OASAP for their unique pieces.
Emily Jane: Sportsgirl, Cotton On, secondhand and vintage stores, Myer and online shopping!

10. What do you do in your spare time?
High Street Jules: In my spare time I usually change up my room, prepare new posts, study (lots and lots of study), watch my favourite TV seasons, read magazines/ books, style clothes on my mannequin, make hair accessories and figure skate.
Bones Blogger: Oh god knows! i love to read and watch either Carrie diaries or Gossip girl ( chuck still likes Blair, shits getting serious ) I love to write about anything and everything, whats in my head, whats real and whats not, so that would also be something i do in my spare time!
Pretty Dresses in the Laundry: Haha what spare time? Between uni, work and blogging, there isn't all that much in between. Hanging out with friends and family probably.

Bones and Bruises | Advice on Body Image

What do you see when you look in the mirror? Do you see your beauty or all of the faults?

More than 90 percent of girls 15 to 17 years want to change at least one aspect of their physical appearance. When I found this out, my jaw literally dropped. How can this happen?

This statistic made me realise how important it is to not just accept what you look like but love your body and embrace every part of it.

The reality is that all people come in all different shapes and sizes, therefore it is completely unrealistic to represent only one body type as beautiful.

Who cares what colour your hair is, how far apart your legs are and how tanned your skin is. We are all different, every one of us - that is what makes us unique and special. The world would be boring if everyone looked the same.

I have decided to put together some tips as to how to love the skin you're in:

  • When you look in the mirror, notice all of the things you love about your body. It might be your eyes, your hair or maybe something that you can't see such as your brain. You could even try looking at yourself as though you were your loving and supportive friend.

  • Remember that images portrayed in the media are digitally enhanced and airbrushed, meaning that wanting to look like the people depicted in these images is unrealistic and unattainable

  • Think about the unique attributes that you have, which makes you unique and different to others

  • Enjoy creating your own style. Wear things that are comfortable and make you feel good about yourself.

  • Take care of your body by washing regularly and cleaning your teeth

  • "Be yourself, everyone else is already taken." Celebrate being you and don't try and be someone else

  • You are so much more than the way you look. Don't let what you look like rule you like. Do the things you enjoy and spend time with the people who you care about. After all, "those who matter don't mind and those who mind don't matter" - Dr Seuss

Don't let yourself or anyone else tell you anything but the truth. You are beautiful in your own way.

Easy chocolate brownie recipe


This weekend I did some baking and have decided to share how to make it with you!
It's very easy and doesn't take very long to make! 

 Here is what the final product looked like

Firstly, gather all of the ingredients, in the quantities above

 Place the dry ingredients in a bowl and mix well.

 Add the eggs

 and then the vanilla essence

 Mix well

 Pour mixture into a tray lined with baking paper 

 Bake in the oven for approximately half an hour at 180 degrees, fan-forced

 Pour chocolate chips onto brownie

Spread the chocolate over the surface of the brownie

 Put in the fridge until the chocolate has set

 Optional topping: melt white chocolate in a bowl

Cut up the brownie into square pieces

Put the melted white chocolate into a snap-lock bag and ice on a pattern. I chose to do a naughts and crosses board.

Tastes really good for a quick and simple recipe.
Have fun baking!

High tea + city adventures



Here are some photos from my lovely day in the city with my grandma, sister and cousin. I went to high tea at the QVB where we enjoyed cakes, sandwiches, scones and of course - tea! It was lovely to chat while eating lots of delicious of food! Later on we went and saw 'The Book Thief. I really liked it but I cried from the start until the end! I always cry in movies - it's quite embarrassing.

Have a lovely day.
A collaboration with another blogger is coming in a few weeks - get excited!
