If you know me then, you will know how much I bloody love this time of year - although, it has been very cold and it's gone very cold very fast so even I am adjusting to this climate! However, I shall never complain about this weather because I would pick this over hot sweaty days any day. So, when planning my 'wintery' content, I knew I had to do this post.. Do you know how excited I was to bring my jumpers back into my wardrobe? (I was v v v excited) I would just like to add that, I promise that this will be the last post that I include my cropped trousers from Topman, but just know that I shall still be wearing them every single day (let's not lie to ourselves!) I couldn't find the exact ones, but you can view all of Topmans' range of their cropped trousers here

This is definitely been my go-to outfit so far, although it's not a combination that I've thought about before. When we transition to Summer, I always pop all my jumpers and coats away and I forget what I actually have so when I unfolded this hoodie which I got in the Urban Outfitters sale a few years ago, I was so excited because did I forget all about it? Yes. Am I madly in love with it again? YES! I know this is crazy to say but I already predict that I will wear this exact outfit the most of this winter, I don't know if it's just me or if any of you do this but I find an outfit that I lovee and I just don't take it off, these trousers are a perfect example of this LOL.

Trainers for me have to tick the comfort box and these Reebok classics that I got for an absolute bargain a few months ago definitely do! I am not actually mad on trainers, I have a few pairs that I love and wear repeatedly but I've never been obsessed with them like some of my friends are. I would rather just have a few pairs that go with most outfits! I indulged in buying myself some Vans the other day, I had some years ago but I simply just don't know where they went (weird, I know) but I absolutely love them and I don't know how I've survived without them because they are so good for slipping on with any outfit and heading out the door. If you're looking for some new shoes then definitely check Rebook out (they do lots of different colours too!)

One of my favourite things to do is share some love, I did a similar thing in October last year where I talked you through 8 Blogs You Need To Be Reading. I am obsessed with Instagram lately, I've always had a rocky relationship with the platform.. Sometimes I'd love it and sometimes I'd hate it but recently, we're going strong. I did a little story over on my Instagram where I mentioned some of the accounts that I love and I thought, why not make it into a blog post? A lot of these people mentioned are some of my favourite bloggers, some I've looked up to since day one. If you don't follow me on social media, you won't know but I've currently got the dreaded winter flu (the first and last I hope, I'm being optimistic!) so I thought I'd talk you through some of my favourite Instagram accounts!

Em Sheldon (EmShelx) - A selection of the best travel and fashion content I've ever come across! Em has been one of my go-to's since I ever started and her content has just got better and better throughout the years! If you're looking for the perfect travel recommendations then you need to head over to her Instagram because the moments she captures are beautiful.

BethLouise (BethxLouisexx) - this girl is the person that pops in my head when I hear people say 'blogging is easy' because this girl has so much determination and passion for what she does, she deserves so much more exposure! Not to mention, she is one of the nicest people I've come across in the industry! Beth gives a real insight into her life on her stories which adds such a personal and unique touch. She's a pleasure to watch.

Maria Joynson (MariaJBlogs) - again, very similar to Beth, this girl makes me want to go work so hard. She is such an inspiration when it comes to making something for yourself and seeing your dream results. She has inspired me so much in the blogging industry from day one and anyone who wants to start blogging or just wants a warming person to go to then this is your girl. Her Instagram is like a 'part two' of her blog and her stories are one of my favourite ever thing.

Carl Cunard (Carl_Cunard) - Carl's feed is essentially a lookbook of the best places to go to be the best dressed and I've been obsessed since I discovered him about a year ago. He has such a warming feed that invites you into his daily life.

Lauren Rosenbaum (Loulabxlle) - If I could have anyone's feed then I would hands down have Lauren's! Whatever season it is, she tops it! Whatever occasion, she has it all! She currently has the cosiest feel for winter and it fills my blogger eyes with joy whenever I look at it.

Thomas Lloyd (Thomas.M.Lloyd) - Finally, my last one brings me on to my favourite bearded man on Instagram, who I discovered very recently! Tom is a husband and a Dad to the most precious little girl. From family days out, to outfit of the days, I really enjoy following his life and I'm sure you would too!

When it comes to your career, you're going going to hit milestones and that's totally normal. It's just how it tends to go. The first one is always getting ready for a new job because when you finish school or university, or you've been travelling for a while, the next thing to do is to get started on your career path. This will be a totally difference experience for all of us, for some it's always the case that you go into a entry-level position and work your way up - but it won't always go that way, sometimes you will find that you end up getting an internship first or that you are trying to build up work experience alongside a part-time job before you can actually land your dream job that you've been working so hard for. Either way, when the time comes, you need to be ready. Here's what you can do! (this post is collaborative - however, as always all opinions are my own!)

1. Getting a portfolio together is essential to show people you can demonstrate your skills - this is where you can show off everything you've experience and this is why, no matter what industry you're in, you should look into getting a portfolio sorted! This way, you've got everything you've done in one place ready to show off and highlight all your strengths!

2. Kit out your wardrobe! When it comes to your first day specifically, and even interviews too, you need to make sure you have a wardrobe ready - it's an essential! This last thing you want is to land a job and be asked to start tomorrow and worry that you don't have everything you need. So you will want to find the best office wear options so you can stock up in preparation! When your work wardrobe is complete, you will feel more ready too.

3. Get Your Transport Sorted - from here, you'll then want to be thinking how you will get to work and do a few trial runs! Will you walk? Get the tube or the tram? Will you be getting the train, or will you drive yourself? And if you're going to, do you have a suitable vehicle? If not, you're going to look into options like the new Vauxhall Grandland X SUV. You will want to invest in something reliable and that will get you to work in one piece (and most importantly, on time!)

4. Networking in your industry is so handy because if you want to get to know people in your company, you need to put yourself out there and connect! To start with, you could do this online with websites such as Linkedin which connects people from all aspects of a business!

5. Creating a 'career plan' is something else you might want to think about either before you start, or as you're finding your feet in your new job, creating a plan of where you want to be and when you want to be there. Ideally, you're going to want to know where you're heading. Today is today but what about next year? Yes, you may be happy to even have the job you have but realistically do you want to be there forever? Or, do you want to grow? My advice is plan this stuff now and get a mental plan in place!
