Paige Joanna DIY Present Jars | Sewing Kit

Christmas is only around the corner now and with the craziness of Black Friday, I have decided staying home making hand made presents is a lot more fun and thoughtful. This DIY today is the first of 3 I will be doing in the style of present jars, they are so easy to re-create and there are so many things you can do with a jar to personalise a gift for someone. 
This DIY jar to to make a little sewing kit, perfect for friends who have just moved out, people who like crafting or family friends! Of course, I found some amazing inspiration on my Pinterest and I hope you can all agree this is a great idea to gift someone to make it mean more. Follow my simple steps and let me know if you decide to make something similar! Use the hashtag #PaigeJoannaDIY

With all the sad events going on in Paris and all over the world recently, it doesn't really feel right to be talking about Christmas. With that being said though, life does inevitably go on and we have to live it in the most positive and thoughtful way we can. So yes, this does entail Christmas shopping but when done in a certain way, you can also give money back to people and charities that need it. With the help of a website called easyfundraising enabling you to shop on huge favourite brands and retailers whilst donating a percentage of each sale to a charity of your choice.

Camp Mod Dolly Acorn Shirt & Pinafore Dress

Paige Joanna Camp Mod Dolly Autumn 2015

Back again with another outfit post, this time with my new freshly cut hair, which i'm absolutely loving! In the past couple of weeks I have seen a few other bloggers go for the chop and it's a great seeing others embracing shorter hair and healthier locks. Of course you can see the wonderful hair stylist who did it and a before and after here
As for this outfit, I am finally wearing the print I illustrated, from Mod Dolly! Whilst I worked there I got to design some exclusive prints and you can see this acorn one and a mushroom print in the current Camp Mod Dolly collection. They are so adorable and i'm really pleased with how they turned out. The whole collection is super cute and perfect for me, with this dark green pinafore dress which is one of my favourites. Although i'm sad not to be with the company anymore it's great to see the collections each season and wear my favourites pieces!

Perfect Primark picks for Autumn/Winter

Sunday, 15 November 2015

As you can see this post was pre-hair cut, so forgive the bad roots and past photos but I have been meaning to post this outfit. I posted a Primark Haul on my Youtube Channel a couple of weeks ago featuring these items and I literally can't stop wearing them. If you haven't been to Primark recently then definitely check it out, I love their winter clothing best as they always do amazing basics and great items that are good value for money. This outfit in particular is one I can wear so many times to work, at the weekends and pretty much anywhere. I have also dressed up these check trousers with a pretty blouse and heeled boots and it looked so lovely. Not much more to say on the items other than they are as comfy as they look and i'm definitely considering going and seeking more in different colours.

Hello again, I am so excited to post this blog post. As my boyfriend Chris is super talented, working as a graphic designer at Soho Media Group, it means we are able to go to the Royal Variety this year, as they designed all the promotional material. Lucky for me I get to dress up in my best clothes and go along for an amazing evening of celeb entertainment, ahhh!!
I decided to do a trial run with my hair, make up and outfit so you guys can get first look. I also filmed a get ready with me video on my Youtube that is available to watch below. I hope you enjoy it and let me know what you think of my overall look in the comments (as well as subscribe to my channel).
