New Beginnings

It has been well over a year since the last blog post on Jute, Jam, and Joy. Why? Well, there are many reasons why with the main one being life. I will not bore you with the details, but a lot has changed, and I am still recovering from trying to remember then resetting all the passwords to the blog and connected social media sites. A new streamlined approach has been taken, so it was goodbye to our Facebook page, and the fate of our Instagram page is still to be decided.

The blog has also had a revamp, nothing major just a more uniform font and colour with a fresh new background. Things will most likely change as blogging becomes a part of life again and I reteach myself how to use Blogger.


Looking forward now to new content Jute, Jam, and Joy was not solely about beauty. However, it was the largest component of previous blog posts. Beauty reviews will still be part of the blog combined with more culture and lifestyle posts. Experiencing more what's on our doorstep was a big motivation for starting the blog up again, providing a reason to say yes more and explore our surroundings.

Blog posts about new beginnings can ramble on a bit (and are never complete without motivational quotes) so I will round it up here. Thank you to those who checked the blog to see if it was still active it is very much appreciated. A goal has been set for one post a month so new content will be on its way soon. As always you can find us here on Twitter and please leave any comments you have down below. So now onward and upwards here's to a new chapter in the Jute, Jam, and Joy life. Cheers!

Under the Sea...

As the summer holidays draw to a close, thoughts often turn to new stationary. I may not be going back to school but with a new year of university drawing ever closer it was high time I purchased some new notebooks; and aren't these lovely.

The past year I have been very strict about not buying any new notebooks, I had piles laying around the house half used and it needed to stop. So far the ban has been a success and the pile has dwindled into nothing (Ok, I lie say 3, a girl needs options right? Right?) However when I spotted these beauties at The Range store I knew they had to come home with me.

At the moment I've been going through what I like to call the "Ocean Phase". Everything I'm buying whether it be plates or clothing has some sort of ocean inspiration behind it. Why I'm not sure; I find the sea calming and just now I'm loving all things aquatics big time.

For the price, these notebooks are top notch. The quality of the paper is as what you would find in a more expensive notebook, not the paper thin. You receive 60 sheets per notebook which is more than ample for some quick uni note taking. The books are thread bound which I prefer over gummed adding a nice little touch to the overall style. They are so lovely I probably would have paid double for them if they were in the stationary section of TKMaxx.

I can't find these on The Range website so it would probably be best to pop in if you fancy getting them yourself. Prices start from £1.50. The Range has a wide ranging stationary section and you are bound to find something exciting whenever you go in, I know I always do.

So have you purchased any new stationary recently?
Let us know in the comments below we love hearing from you!

General Election 2015

We don't normally discuss politics on the blog and we do not care who you vote for.

What we will say is how important it is to use your vote! 
Go to your polling stations which are open from 7am to 10pm and let your voice be heard!
Whats the point in having one if your not going to use it?

Once that's done sit back, relax and remember the good old days of the Swingometer.

Yes they had to paint on extra numbers during the 1970's result show. There was just so much swinging going on...
