We're suddenly seeing a drop in temperature and coats and scarves are becoming an essential, I'm a total jumper lover and have been on a bit of a haul when it comes to them recently so I thought I'd do a little post to show you what I got.

My most recent buy is this gorgeous camel coloured fluffy knit from Topshop. I have this in a couple of other colours and just think its perfect to throw on with a pair of jeans for ultimate winter comfort. The necklace in the picture is also a Topshop piece and I thought it went lovely with the jumper. I got this at an absolute bargain from £30 down to £15 on a half price promo! Not forgetting student discount ;)

Next up is this gorgeous roll neck, again from Topshop. In fact the picture doesn't do it justice, its a perfect fit and is so cosy for those wintery days. This comes in a variety of colours - I really wanted them all however I chose this as I thought it was nice and Christmassy!! 

I'm loving pastel colours ATM and I thought this H&M piece was an absolute bargain at just £14.99! I chose the duck egg blue, but again this comes in a variety of colours and is a lovely baggy style fit which you can layer up for ultimate warmth. H&M is so great for bargain basics, don't you think?!

As many of you probably aready know, I have some good news..... I passed my driving test. WOOOO. As a 'well done' gift my Auntie treated me to this lovely cropped style furry jumper which is so versatile and goes with pretty much everything! Believe it or not this is actually a piece from Tesco! Ha, not just great for your baked beans! ;) 

Last but by no means least, I got this beautiful shell pink ribbed high neck from Newlook when they had their 25% of knitwear. I actually wore this on the day of my driving test and passed so I know class this as my lucky jumper, ha! Newlook actually have lots of lovely knitwear in currently so if you're looking for a nice, cheap knit that's the place to go! Also this piece is sooooo soft unlike some knitwear which can be uber itchy.

Holding my certificate, excuse the windsweptness!

As I was googling our page this afternoon I came across a video that I hope will brighten up your gloomy Wednesday! 

I wasn't really sure whether to laugh or cry but you can decide for yourselves....

I'm back on the IOW this week and I am absolutely loving catching up with my friends and fammo! It seems all I've been doing is indulging on yummy foods... no change there. Yesterday I caught up with Flo for lunch! It was BOGOF on main meals at Table Table, Newport so we took advantage! I went for the chicken and leek pie whilst Flo stuck to the classic burger. Equally delish.
As we got an utter bargain, it would've been silly to not dive in a dessert so we crumbled at the temptation of a rocky road sundae!
Yup, it tasted as good as it looks.

Today, Crystal and I tried the new christmas themed toffee nut latte today at Starbucks, if you haven't tried already - please do, not to mention their rocky road slice mmmmm heaven in a bite.

Oooo and I've had my braces off. YIPPEEE

It's safe to say I'm in a total food coma and I'm sure you're all drooling at your desks!
Home sweet home

I was lucky enough to experience Centerparcs and I can offically say I have caught the 'Centerparcs bug' and I can totally see what the hype is about! It is truly amazing and the most fun I have had in a LONG time! I know I'm pretty late with the whole Centerparcs vibe but I'm sure loads of you can relate if you have been! 

Through school I was never a sports fan and anything fitness related really did turn my stomach so I could never imagine Centerparcs being my thing and whenever I heard good things about Centerparcs I let it go over my head however I have somehow changed and the idea of cycling around all week amongst other sports related activities literally excites the hell out of me! (Mainly the thought of being able to eat copious amounts of food and not feel massively guilty! Although, I'm pretty sure I ate over 10x my body weight). Hey ho, it's Monday tomorrow. New day and all that.

When we arrived we went straight to the Cycle Centre and picked up our rides for the week. 

HAHA. Yes, we did get a tandem! (After a day of having normal bikes, I realised bike riding seriously isn't my forte and I could only picture myself with two broken legs and no front teeth). So after a little bit of persuasion Oli agreed that we could get a tandem. Who knew going up hills would be so easy?! ;)

Segwaying was defintely one of my highlights of the week! Imagine riding to work on one of these?!

Closely followed by our spa day and afternoon tea! 

This was my first ever Spa day at Aqua Sana and it most definitely did not disappoint! The Turkish Saunas and the beautiful scenery around the swimming pools were breath-taking! 

Our Afternoon Tea was incredible and it included warm scones (mmm, making me seriously hungry!), a selection of sandwiches, a macaron, lemon drizzle cake and a tiramisu! Accompanied by a peppermint tea! 

Not forgetting our full body massages (I'd like one every day, please!) and shellac treatments. I felt like a princess! 

The Pancake House! 
Pretty sure this picture speaks for itself... Amazing. 
This was actually Oli's pancake (jealous). Mine didn't look quite as good! 

Not forgetting the most amazing salad and dessert at CafĂ© Rouge! 

Paysanne Salad followed by Chocolate and banana torté with salted caramel ice cream. (It tasted even better than it looks)

I'm sorry if this post bored you slightly but I just thought I'd share with you all what I've been up to this past week and to let you all know how amazing Centerparcs really is! I hope you all had a fab half term and a happy halloween! Now back to reality!
