10 HOLIDAY CAPSULE WARDROBE PIECES

August 8, 2019

I’ve been on enough holidays in my life-time, that I know what my core capsule holiday items are. Especially since becoming a mum (where our baby definitely gets the majority of luggage allowance!), it’s been even more important to do some more smart packing, as I like to call it. Less is more – that’s for certain, and the key is to pack really versatile pieces, which are easy to mix and match throughout the holiday, as well as items which can easily be dressed up, or down. The below items are all my wardrobe must-haves which I never go on holiday without…

7 PLACES TO EAT IN BARCELONA

July 30, 2019
Barcelona

Barcelona is a city very close to my heart. Not only was I very fortunate to call it my home for 3 years, but the city is like no other, with it’s unique and magnetic energy. I first visited when I was 17 years old, and that’s when I decided that I wanted to live there at some point in my life. Fast forward a few years on and my dream became reality, when I decided to go to university there over a decade ago. I experienced so much during those years living there, and the city will always hold a special place in my heart. Surprisingly I have only been back twice since moving away (both times being 24-hour work trips) – so needless to say, the excitement levels were high, when my husband whisked me away for a whole weekend in the city, to celebrate our 5 year wedding anniversary a few months back. Good food and wine was on the top of the agenda, and I was excited to visit some of my old haunts, as well as adding some new ones to the list! Here are my top 7 places.   Continue Reading

MY SKINCARE OVERHAUL FOR SPRING

May 3, 2019
skincare (1 of 7)

I tend to do a refresh of my skincare every season – I keep some of the core basics, but then just switch to a product or brand more suitable to each season. Naturally when we’re now moving into the warmer months, I tend to use more lightweight products, such as gels, light serums and water based products. If you follow me on Instagram, you might recall me talking about my skin consultation at the Eudelo clinic, with Dr Stefanie Williams. Since having a full skin assessment (and after I was surprisingly diagnosed with light Rosacea), I was given a complete skincare overhaul. Evidently, I was doing nearly everything wrong (with some big surprises in store)…

DUBAI HOLIDAY OUTFITS

As requested, here is my (slightly delayed) holiday outfit round up from my recent trip to Dubai. As always when I travel, I try my best to pack in outfits (to save time – especially now that I have a little one to run after!) and coordinating styles and colours, which can easily be mixed and matched together throughout the holiday. I’m always more in the mood for colours and prints when the sun’s out – in softer materials, loose dresses and skirts, blouses and light denim. I always pack flats and easy sandals (I basically live in flats, mules and loafers when abroad – I never tend to bring any heels). Comfortable chic, if I had to give my holiday wardrobe a theme! Here are my favourite looks.  Continue Reading
