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

  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!

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

AD with Yes To 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

How To Read More & What I Read In May

*gifted items and affiliate links Hi mates, it's been a while!  So, I've had quite a few requests to create a blog post all about how I read so much. Don't get me wrong there are loads of people out there that read way more than me. But I average 4 books a month, however with lockdown in the UK I've been able to rack up my monthly average.  Let's just jump straight in to how I read as much as I do. 1 ~ Choose books you WANT to read This sounds super obvious, however I myself have been known to follow book trends and pick up a book because it's all over the gram, or because my favourite influencer has told me to read it. Doing so can result in books you just don't get in the flow of reading and books you don't want to actively pick up.  Know what genres you like to read. Know what authors you like and do some digging to make sure you pick wisely. Sometimes you will be disappointed with a book that you feel you should of enjoye

Easy To Make Zero Waste Coffee Body Scrub

I'm back on this blogging hype and I'm feeling super inspired to get my space of the internet up and running again. Basically I thought I knew what I was doing in the back end of my blog (theme, settings etc) and for a few months I couldn't do anything until my friends life saver boyfriend sorted it for me! So, lets jump into a cosmetic, zero waste body care at home post and something I'm loving using in my daily shower routine.  It doesn't cost the earth, makes your skin ultra soft, and all you need are things from the kitchen cupboard.   I don't know if you've seen the companies selling coffee scrub or very similar products for around £6 and up, so making something like this thats fresh and uses up a waste bi-product and cupboard essentials means you're saving money as well as saving the purchase of a product!  Items I use in my homemade body scrub: * Coffee Grounds * Coconut Sugar 4tbp * Vanilla Extract 3tsp First things first, the co
