My Holiday Dress Lyst

August 22, 2016

Morning all and happy Monday, hope you had a nice weekend? I had a fab weekend and Monday is much more exciting than usual as I am very soon off on holiday to Russia – so this week on the blog will have a distinct holiday and/or Russian theme to it!

I don’t know about you but I get quite excited about packing for a holiday – I like to do it slowly over a good week and by the time I am done, I have usually packed and repacked at least 20 times. I am rubbish at making outfit choices in advance, as I like to be prepared for every occasion. That is however very difficult with one suitcase… especially when you are me – one who fails miserably at any attempt to travel light!

So anyway, when packing for a hot summer holiday, I always like a selection of dresses so that I have something for every occasion and temperature. Today I have put together my favourite dresses from the recently discovered, online personal shopping experience Lyst

I love all of these and would definitely wear them all on holiday (and again after) so well worth the money. I always like to have a few different dressy/evening dresses, day dresses and beach/pool dresses. I find trousers too hot on holiday, so a dress is perfect for me. I especially love the Self Portrait dress (bottom left). Which is your favourite?

Have a good Monday and I shall be back soon xx

My Giant Sukhi Coaster

August 19, 2016

Happy Friday! So I have recently received this beautifully handmade pom pom coaster from Sukhi, which I absolutely love. You may have seen the multi coloured Sukhi pom pom rug on one of my recent posts, and so you will already know how gorgeous everything they do is…

Apart from the fact that it all looks so amazing, I love the fact that they are literally handmade in Nepal – where Sukhi means happy! It is all fair trade and the items come directly from the the Nepalese workers – there are no middle men and we have the added satisfaction of knowing that the real artisans benefit from our purchases.

I cannot decide how best to use it, so I have tried out a few ideas – I need you guys to vote! Which is your favourite? I think I like it most under my phone table cactus, but am rather torn…

It is so cute (and so well made) it really will look good wherever I decide to put it. Its actually a good thing that I can chop and change what I do with it, so I can really make the most of it. That said – which is your favourite look?

You can get your own giant coaster (which comes in all sorts of colours) as well as a beautiful range of rugs directly from the Sukhi website.

Have a very fabulous Friday and weekend and I shall be back soon xx

Olympic Fever – What to Wear

August 17, 2016

With Olympic fever everywhere at the moment and Team GB doing so well in the Rio Olympics medal table (whilst looking fab in their Stella McCartney designed kit!) you can’t help but feel a bit inspired to get off your bum and do a bit more exercise – whatever your sport may be! Unfortunately though, I am personally getting a bit old for gymnastics, so will have to stick to Spinning and the cross trainer – I can just about manage that!

I have actually been doing more exercise recently – just trying to stay healthy and lose a few pounds before my holiday at the end of the month, so I don’t scare people in my bikini hehe!

I am not going to lie – I am not one of these girls that loves exercise and spends every day in the gym, but it is a necessary evil and I always feel good once I have done it and it is over! Something that always makes it (a little bit) easier is having a cool gym outfit to wear! There is so much pretty gym stuff around now – and I am going to show you my 3 current favourite brands…

River Island have very recently launched their RI Active range, which I just love – fab styles, colours and slogans and how cool is that sports cape (bottom left)! I literally want everything in the range!

New Look also do some fabulous gym wear – I actually already have the vest-top on the top left of the pics shown above, and this is one of my favourite gym tops – it is super comfortable, but also flattering.

Adidas can really do wrong! Not only are they the Team GB brand – they are also super cool and there is very little they do, that I do not love!

What do you think? Do you have a favourite sports brand you swear by, or do you just tend to go with what you like the look of?

Massive good luck love and vibes to Team GB. The rest of you have a fab and active Wednesday and I shall be back soon xx
