Five Things I Love Friday 011.

One. No more long distance.
From being 200 miles away 6 weeks ago to now being just a 2 minute walk is pretty amazing and to be honest, a bit of a shock to the system. Has it been 6 weeks of sunshine, lollipops and roses? Heck no because that’s totally unrealistic. Adjusting to such a massive change has taken time and I’d go insane without having a few disagreements. We don’t agree on every little thing and I’m a self-confessed stroppy brat. But for some reason, he loves me. And I love him. We want to spend the rest of our lives together, and you know what, I just know that it’s absolutely going to happen. Honestly, long distance is possible and don’t ever let anyone tell you otherwise!

Two. Disaster Designs Dandy Wallet.
I’ve been searching all day for a new purse that’s a little bit different but still practical and this is by far my favourite. I have the matching bag and I don’t get to use that as much as I’d like to so I think this might be a perfect investment.

Three. 200 Blog Posts!
This blog is one of the few things I've ever stuck at and persevered with in my life. For some reason I have a terrible habit of giving up everything I start so I'm surprised and completely over the moon that I've managed to achieve something for once.

Four. Everything on Modcloth.

Well, almost everything! It’s such a lovely little website with so many treasures waiting to be found. The dresses pages are always my favourite & I find myself adding all the things I’d like to my basket, making a sad face at how many pennies the total is and then X'ing out of the page. I do still love a good browse every now and again!

Five. Adele.
Because she's just gorgeous. Need I say anymore?

What have you been especially loving this week?


  1. i'm so happy for you no longer being long distance! look how cute and happy you both look. b'awww you make me melt you do! adele looks beaut in those pictures, i love her hair colour. eep and thankyou for the mention, you're too kind :) xxx

  2. Yay, it's so lovely that you and Mr Jennie are together again with much less distance inbetween.

    This week I have been especially loving Sufjan Stevens' Age of Adz album. I have listened to I Walked on repeat several times a day since last Sunday. I think it has MSG in it or something.

  3. Aww so glad the big move has worked out for you lovely. Of course it would be a big adjustment to you both but totally worth it. Mr L and I started off as long distance and we've just celebrated our 9 year anniversary. Just remember, ALL relationships take work. Also, that purse is adorable!

    Lots of love xxx

  4. you two look so cute together! those purses are amazing, as are the beautiful dresses on modcloth!

    adele is gorgeous!


  5. I absolutely love your first point! Mostly because I am 200miles from my boyfriend, we're been long distance for a year and have another year to go yet! People always ask me if it's worth it? I don't think people understand if they haven't done long distance or found the person you can do long distance with! LOVE disaster designs, I have one of their purses and they are awesome, and really hard wearing!

  9. Ooh you should definitely buy the purse Jennie, it's very 'you'. So happy for you that you're with your boyfriend again at last (: Warms my little heart! Have a lovely weekend sweet <3

  10. I love Adele! I'm glad you were able to stay together even going through long distance!


  11. I am so happy that you aren't long distance anymore! Long distance is rough. I love the wallet!

  12. This wallet looks very tempting - I need to spend my hard-earned cash on a new one (so I'm gonna be left with an emptiness! Ha ha!). But all I see is just not for me. I'll check it out. Thanks! X
