H&M monochrome dots and frills | Spain OOTD


When you scroll through pictures and get those holiday blues because you miss the sun so bad? Yeah that's been me for the past week now since coming back from Spain. For those of you who don't know I had a week staying at my friends house just to chill. Literally all we did was swim, chill, eat, drink Spanish gin and spent quality time together. I had one of the best weeks and am missing the sunshine and easy life so much, but am reliving the magic through my pictures and wanted to show you some of the outfits I wore whilst on holiday. Enter my go to summer dress that was cheap as chips!!



This dress is so easy to wear and to style. Its stretchy material makes for a super comfortable item thats perfect for hot weather, and great for both day and night. The slightly elasticated waist nips into the smallest part of your body so it's really flattering. 

Dress: H&M
Mules: Primark
Bag: Whistles
Lipstick: Glo & Ray
Hoops: Jewellery Box


Although this isn't the most colourful outfit, I love a simple monochrome get up with a pop of colour in terms of the red lip and believe it can have as much impact as an in your face colourful outfit. Adding this little clutch bag was a great idea looking back as it looked great in the sun and helped to brighten the overall look up, instead of being flat and could of come across quite dull. 

These mules are my first ever pair and I'm so in love with them. Primark, you did good as per! Not having to wear shoes in so that they don't hurt or blister you is amazing. I don't know about you, but I always buy a few news items for my holidays and never think about wearing things in. On the first night I popped these bad boys on, found them to be incredibly comfortable so wore them most nights. I went for grey because they didn't actually have my size in the powder blue (sad I know) but I know I'l wear these lots now I'm back in the UK. 


If you follow me on Instagram you would of seen this dress on me when I attended the Dreamland re-launch, and it won't be the last time you see this either. Because the weather in the UK is pretty good right now (keep your fingers crossed) I will continue to bust this bad boy out and play around with different ways of styling. Maybe try out different lip colours, accessories and what not to give it different looks. 

So that was outfit one from my Spain holiday. Another will be up on Friday and then a mini vlog, and what I ate will be up Sunday. 

I'd love to know your thoughts on wearing monochrome on holiday. Lots of people I've spoken to actually say that they don't really take black or grey clothing with them on holiday, so I'm really interested to find out. 

Muchos love

xoxo

  2. Sounds like you had a lush holiday, a chill week like that sounds amazing. I love this outfit too, especially that the dress has an elasticated waist - so cute! xx

  3. Don't you think h&m clothing is so spot on lately! Love nearly everything they have in store nearly every time I go in! I always pick up at least something from there when I'm in there!

Dreamland For Spring/Summer 2019 - Press Trip

It's that time of year again, DREAMLAND is open for business! I get so many questions about Margate and DREAMLAND in particular, so why not do another post for you. 

As a South Kent girl through and through, this place has a special place in my heart. Full of nostalgia, and pride of what it's like now. 
You may or may know that I've actually created two blog posts already from DREAMLAND, but wanted to give you a little update on it. I also played around with my camera and a new setting so it's a bit of experimenting too haha. 
Shall we?

Lets get the disclaimer out the way if you didn't catch it in the top right corner. I was invited to the park on this day as press, so received a free wristband, food and drink tokens. I wasn't asked to create a blog post in any way, but I always like to as you guys like it and its such a fun place to photograph. 

Now on to DREAMLAND:
I can't describe how much fun I always have when I visit this place. On this day pictured, it was…

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

Good morning and happy National Cucumber Day!

I love cucumbers! There, I said it. I like to eat them, drink them in juices and smoothies, and even like them in my skincare routine.

Over the last couple of months I've really struggled with my skin. Getting hard lumps under the skin, and rash like breakouts that were super persistent and refused to die down. I thought about whether or not I was using too many different products and clogging up my skin, or it was just down to stress or something. All I knew was that I had to give something a go and hope for it to work it's magic on my problem skin as it was getting me down.

What a day to share my love of cucumbers and my love of the Yes To Cucumber range with you cuties. Make yourself a cheese (vegan cheese if you're like myself) and cucumber sandwich and take a read about a range you'll want try! 



It may shock you to see an entire range made with cucumbers, but it's actually a pretty amazing vegetable when it comes to yo…

Hi, hey, how are ya?

It's been a while I know, and I'm sorry. I needed some time to settle into freelance life (which, I'm loving btw), and just some time to get into the new swing of things you know. 
So anyway, that can be saved and chucked into a separate blog post (let me know if you fancy that). 
Over on Instagram I've been sharing the odd product here and there over the last few months regarding skincare, as my skin went super dry as soon as the seasons and weather changed. My skin was flaking it was that dry, and my lips were red raw and went without lipstick as I couldn't bare to put anything on them at all. Thankfully I ended up creating a nice little routine....more on that in a bit, and found some new must haves for hydrating and softening the skin and lips. 
Lets start from the bottom to the top ey? I like being awkward! And, before we get stuck in, these are all products I use on a rotation and not all at the same time. My skin enjoys it when it swap aroun…
