Hi! I’m Jade.
I recently decided to start blogging again. Very recent, July 2015. I used to blog many years ago but real life (work/uni/family) became priorities.
As the blog is written by me, I want my personality to shine through the words, so I will type as I would speak to friends.
I will use it as a platform to showcase my loves & loathes. And most probably some random photos of things I see on my travels.
Until about 4/5 years ago, I would hide in baggy tops and jeans. When people make comments enough, you start to believe them. Especially when it’s family.
Then one day, I tried on a 50s style dress at work (I worked in fashion retail for 10 years), and actually didn’t hate what I saw in the mirror.
Something in me snapped, and I thought – sod it!
I have always had a love for 40s/50s style dresses, but up until then never embraced it. Now my wardrobe is bursting with pretty dresses, and I don’t fear wearing my favourite Ruby Woo red lipstick!
There is only one rule for this blog:
No body shaming.
I will not tolerate any form of bullying/snarking.
All items that I review, I have purchased myself unless otherwise stated. My opinions are my own.
Why the name ‘The Courts Flower?
I am a huge Harry Potter fan. I always have been, and always will. The character Fleur Delacour means ‘ The Flower of the Court’
I am 30 (17/08/1984)
I am definitely a Ravenclaw girl.
I have a degree in Geology.
I have a star named after me.
I love my cats. They are my little furry babies.
I have two lightsabres.
I have a large collection of Lego (mainly Harry Potter)
Did I mention I’m a bit of a geek? (you probably guessed)
I do no conform to the masses, which explains my quirky traits. I stand firmly by what I believe in.
