So just after Christmas I managed to pick up this lovely and warm denim Jacket from Topshop (alas not in the sale though). I really needed something to update my wardrobe as it's been a while (a very long while) and being a huge fan of the classic denim and enjoying the current 90's revival I fell in love with this jacket. I wanted to get something that was versatile, practical but also stylish and on trend and I feel like I have found it in this jacket, which was a very special treat, if you read on you will find out why.

With so many thing going on in our lives - moving house and all the stress coming with that, having to pay the dreaded stamp duty just before Christmas and then being hit by Christmas as well as our car giving up the ghost once and for all it left very little in the pot in terms of "treating" myself. I am one of those people who puts everyone else first so when the lovely people from Halifax asked me if I wanted to be involved in there giving extra campaign were I was given £50 to treat someone in the family, I jumped at the chance as it meant I could pick up something extra special for either John or Mr A but when I told them about it John insisted I finally pick up something for myself.
It's moment like these that I feel really lucky to have a wonderful family and a blog that has some wonderful readers, some of which have turned into friends and amazing opportunities such as this one always make me take a step back and be thankful for everything. A great way to start the year and I really look forward to sharing some amazing adventures with all of you.
