Summer in Yellow

Outfits

Hiya everyone!

I wanted to come on here and post about this INSANELY gorgeous yellow beach set I got from NA-KD.com this summer 💛

OBSESSED – also, can we talk about how blonde my hair is here?!

I mean…come ON. SO NICE!! Yellow’s genuinely been one of my favourite colours for years but I never really wear it because I’m so pale skinned naturally, and it washes me out! This summer (with the help of some fake tan haha) I decided that I was going to dress in more brighter colours and when I saw this outfit I had to grab it.

…And I think it looks great 😉

Love the palm tree back drop ❤

The view from this balcony was also perfect for some photos and I loved the palm trees in the back ground on the golf course. I took these photo’s while in Spain a few weeks ago and the weather was perfect for laying around the pool in a beachy outfit like this.

I feel like the only thing missing from these photos is a lemonade haha 🙂

Guess Shoulder Bag

Outfits

Hiya everyone,

And Happy Easter if you celebrate it!!

I wanted to pop a quick blog post on here about this shoulder bag I recently bought from Guess.

How stunning is that golden buckle?!

It’s brown and black with the classic logo design covering the whole bag apart from the straps. I LOVE IT.

I’ve never been one to buy designer clothing but I saw this bag in the Guess shop while shopping in Oxford Street, in London, a few months back and could not stop thinking about it for the life of me!

It some how seems to go with everything (as dark coloured bags often do)?? I love the size of the bag as it’s big enough that you can get a lot in there but small enough that you forget that you have it on your shoulder. Which is great as I hate carrying things about…

I have a lot of bags but don’t have many smaller shoulder bags – and adding this to my collection was such a good idea as I’ve been wearing almost everywhere since I bought it ❤ . What do you guys think?

Please ignore the junk on the bed…

If I remember correctly this bag was originally in the £100s but I managed to get in a sale for around £60 (my purse is grateful) ~

Hello 2022

Uncategorized

Happy New Year everyone!!!

//Welcome to 2022 ~ I can’t wait to see what this year brings and for all of you to come along and experience my adventures with me ❤

I have a lot of things planned for 2022 and I am determined to make this year better than the past few (Covid!) have been! Sadly, the year hasn’t gotten off to the best start with me finding out today that I’m Covid-positive for the 1st time ever…And get this, it’s my boyfriends birthday today! Sooo, all our plans have gone out the window – which is a shame as we haven’t spent a birthday together since we’ve know each other, because of the pandemic. BUT, set backs aside, I’m POSITIVE that this year will be fab ✨

Some of my goals for this year are maybe a stretch, but I think that even if you don’t achieve what you set out too, as long as you are heading in the right direction, you have made progress :). That’s my main goal for this year – to make progress. Progress towards the life I want to live. For instance this year I would love to:

– Grow my blog and create a bigger community (and maybe potentially make a YouTube channel? We’ll see…)

– Save for a new car!

– Get an apartment and move out 🙂

– Move from my temporary job into a permanent role

– Travel more (this is an important one to me as I LOVE to travel and have barely been able to the last couple of years 😦 – I have my heart set on NYC…hehe)

All these things being said – that does not mean 2021 didn’t have it’s highlights! I managed to get my first graduate job since leaving university which was SUCH a huge achievement for me this year. I traveled to Cyprus with my boyfriend for our first official holiday since Covid began and finally got some sun. I raised £130 for the mental heath foundation, explored Scotland and Wales, met some amazing new people and got my very own office!

I’m also turning 25 on the 18th of this month (I’m hoping I’m Covid free by then fingers crossed 🤞🏻) and it’s so strange to now be in my mid-twenties. For some reason this age seems to mark the start of something new compared to other birthdays I’ve had…I think it’s because my life will totally change from this point onward with new jobs and experiences and opportunities…Super excited for this birthday.//

Peace and love,

An Evening in Cyprus

Travel

Hiya everybody,

I’ve been away for the past week in Cyprus enjoying some warmer weather and some epic food 🥰

Sadly, I missed the build up to Halloween 🎃 (which I absolutely LOVE) this year, but it was so nice to finally get on a plane and go somewhere different…is the return to pre-Covid travel on the horizon?? I hope so!

October is the off-season for tourists, which means some very quiet restaurants and bars!

I spent the week with my Boyfriend and his family in a lovely villa in Latchi (Northwest of the island) and spent most days relaxing around the pool and exploring the bars and restaurants along the beach ~

The first night we went to a fish restaurant and had a lot of great food, and I got to dress up!

Seriously obsessed with this dress – look at the low back!! Sooo nice

We ordered so much food that night (Lobster, lamb, platters etc.) but I actually only had an omelette 🤦🏼‍♀️…vegetarian life!

Because we ordered so much, they gave us a free platter of fresh fruit and some pitta and honey which was YUM. Seriously, it doesn’t look much but it’s delicious!!

Could eat honey pitta all day everyday

We ended the evening drinking wine by the pool until about 4am and proceeded to do that many nights after…the best way to holiday I think 😉

More to come,

Bicycle Shorts

Outfits
Paired with my Ted Baker bag 🙂

//Good afternoon guys, has everyone been keeping up with the Olympics?? I’ve been loving the gymnastics today ~

Speaking of very figure hugging outfits, something that I’ve been loving wearing at the moment is black bicycle shorts! I was always that person for years who started off hating it as a fashion trend, then eventually loving it on other people but never thought I’d wear it myself…BUT that day (or rather year) has come ~

This summer I have been living in my black pair of bicycle shorts! They go with so much but I particularly like wearing them with my oversized white shirt 🙂 (see above).

I wonder what trend will grow on my next?//

Much love,
