Algarve, Here I Come + International Giveaway

The time for my holiday has come, eeeep! If you haven't already heard I'm off to Algarve tomorrow in the early hours of the morning and I can't wait to spend a whole week (and a day) in the sun tanning my extremely pale complexion, swimming in our pool and, enjoying the villa and surroundings. I have never been to Portugal before, and with my fiancé practically being Portuguese I couldn't be more excited. We plan to spend a day or two in Lisbon too and Sephora is already calling my name! I also hear shops like Zara and Berksha are a lot cheaper over there so I'm definitely leaving a little space in my suitcase to bring back lots of new goodies. I might also shoot some outfit posts out there in the streets of Lisbon as I hear they are gorgeous!

S/S 2016 Trends: Off Shoulder LBD

Has anyone else bought way too many summer clothes but barely worn any of them? Good, I'm not alone! With temperatures soaring this past weekend I made sure to take my latest acquisitions out for a spin and guess what, right about now Off Shoulder items take up 80% of my wardrobe. Needless to say, I've become quite obsessed with the trend and have bought way too many different tops and dresses which I have yet to wear, such as this gorgeous little black dress from none other than Matalan, which you may know I love.

Get It Right: How To Wear Tulle Without Looking Like A Ballerina

As the days go by, fall gets that little bit closer to taking over. The days aren't as long as they used to be and whilst technically autumn starts at the end of September, the high street is already stocked up on coats, knits and boots with the left bits of summer sale finally gone. Spring and summer fashion this year was fun, girly and colourful with various trends to get sucked into. My favourites include the pom pom trend, pleats and white trainers I have repeatedly worn here on the blog (see here, here, here, here, here and here - I told you there were many posts).

Cool & Comfy: Sports Retro Fashion is HOT!

Sports fashion has been evolving for the past few years. If you think about it, we've been rocking the trend for quite some time now. That cap you threw on to finish off the look (and to make it tumblr worthy), the hoodie you put on top of your floral dress for extra comfort and warmth, that white pair of sneakers you haven't been able to take off for the past few months; it all adds up. Hints of the trend have already marked presence in our day to day outfits, and inevitably sporty fashion grew with it. The division between style and comfort got blurred in the process and sporty outfits have became the norm of daywear. The athletic influences have certainly grown and here's a few ways you can style this trend with some gorgeous vintage pieces from Rokit, because what's better than keeping it sporty AND retro?!

Multi-Masking With L'Oreal Pure Clay Detox, Glow & Purity Masks

When it comes to face masks, I feel like I have little to zero knowledge and am definitely jumping on the multi-masking bandwagon slightly late here. So after reading numerous reviews about these L'Oreal face masks, it was only a matter of time I got my hands on all of them to try and see what the fuss was all about. I thought they were widely raved in the blogging world but on a recent trip to Boots, I realised how indeed popular they were being sold out in every single shop. Thank God for online shopping; I have now tried all 3 for a week or so and am ready to share my thoughts with you!

Bring On the Heatwave: 5 Places In London To Visit This Weekend

Summer is nearing its end in the UK and what can we say other than it was a rather disappointing one. I'm able to count the days I was able to leave the house in nothing but a tee and some shorts and despite the longer days and more sunshine, the temperature has barely left the mid-twenties…ah well. This weekend however and towards the beginning of next week, we should be getting more summer-like weather in London at least and it's now or never! If you haven't had a bbq yet this is the time, and for someone like me who hasn't yet been to the beach this year, Brighton here I come! Mark my words; these are going to be the last few days of summer so we should most definitely make the most it. With the likes of urban beaches and rooftops, if you're planning to spend these hot upcoming days in the city there is no excuse for not doing something cool during the weekend.

S/S 2016 Trends: Khaki Cropped & Flared Jumpsuit

With my summer holidays finally just a few weeks away, I've been putting together a list of everything I wish to take and needless to say it's basically my entire wardrobe. I ridiculously over-pack every time so in the attempt to cut down the amount of clothes I take and bring back intact and unworn, I have been trying to find pieces that are easy to throw on as well as lightweight to endure the 30+ degrees heat of Algarve at the end of the month. Enter this gorgeous Satin Wide Leg Cropped Jumpsuit from the newest Abbey Clancy's Picks for Matalan.

My Ultimate Summer Nail Polish Shade: Essie Fifth Avenue

You know you have a problem when people ask why you are repeatedly sporting the same nail colour. It's not a secret that I love Essie polishes and until I discovered L'Oreal polishes which I talked about here, Essie was the one and only brand I ever bought so you can imagine I have quite the collection. But there is one I shade I always go back and today I want to dedicate this entire (albeit short) post to it.

S/S 2016 Trends: Chanel Two-Tone Inspired Sling-Backs

I've talked about owning a Chanel bag on the blog before (read here) and according to a new study from Baghunter, an authentic bag currently makes a better investment than real state. We all know how expensive they are, but what people don't realise is that their value has increased more than 70% since 2010, and is set to continue on this up rise. Considering getting on the house ladder in London is extremely difficult don't mind if I do get me a new bag! Now I have the perfect excuse, am I right?! And whilst I am at it, I might as well get me a pair of Chanel Sling-Backs because have you seen how popular they've been this summer?
