I adore the faux leather jacket I bought from Topshop back in early 2012 and after wearing it with pretty much every outfit since, it's safe to say it's seen better day (although still going strong). Also, my current jacket is slightly cropped, so amazing with dresses and high-waisted garments as it accentuates the waist but looks a bit naff over a jumper/tee and jeans which is why I have my eye on another faux leather jacket, very similar to my current one but longer in the body. Faux leather jackets are also amazing to layer over cardigans and underneath coats during the bitter cold, winter months.

Recently, I started a new segment on my YouTube that goes by the ever so original name, #ADVICEWITHRHI. I'm so pleased with the positive response I have had with these videos so far and I cannot wait to film more. There are a silly amount of topics I want to cover within this series, it's fairly overwhelming, therefore I'm just filming random subjects as they spring to mind. This instalment is based around friendships - the good, the bad and the ugly.

It's summer, the suns out (well, most of the time here in England), you're about to yet off to somewhere exotic or head down to the beach with your friends but then you realise that last years swimwear doesn't quite fit you as well anymore. Story of my life. Well, I have gathered a small collection of my top swimwear picks including swimsuits, high waisted bikinis and separates, for you to shop if you find yourself in the same boat.

As if eating baby food and disgusting flavoured jelly beans with Marzia wasn't enough, Douglas and I decided to do the what's in my mouth challenge. Although I wasn't best impressed with the food Doug fed me, I'm quite fond of this video and most of you over on YouTube seem to find it hilarious so here I am, sharing it on my blog also. Oh, the things I do for the sake of entertainment.

This month started with mine and Douglas' two year anniversary where we went for breakfast at Bill's as I've been dying to do that for ages. Doug actually booked a table on his own regard which I thought was very sweet. Before I tucked into my scrumptious buttermilk blueberry pancakes and fresh iced peach tea, I was greeted at my door with a huge bouquet of flowers from my favourite flower stall in town and some goodies from L'Occitane. May I add (and sorry if this is too soppy) that these goodies were from their cherry blossom range which Doug explained he got because it's like the Paolo Nutini song Cherry Blossom which he always sings to me. I have to say, he did good, especially for someone who has never been particularly thoughtful when it comes to gift shopping but this year he has become a pro. I'm a very lucky girl.

Since becoming completely independent (by that I mean paying for rent, bills etc all by myself but I've had a job and paid for everything myself since the age of 15) I've had to tighten the purse strings which means it's been a long time since I went out to buy a load of things at once. I tend to collect things over a period of months now and here are some homeware bits I've gathered recently.
