A day in paradise...

The Ria Formosa islands trip - another ticked off my bucket list!  Hop aboard a luxury catamaran from Cais Portas do Mar in old town Faro.  Cruise out through the lagoon, where you can spot the local wildlife.  Visit the 4 different islands of Armona, Culatra, Farol and Deserta.

Clear waters, secluded beaches and fish around your feet, it felt like the caribbean islands.  Tickets can be purchased here at Viator.

I want to visit again!

Ponta de Piedade...

My new favourite place in the Algarve!  Hidden, unspoilt views with the most amazing rock formations and secret caves. 

Definitely a "must-see" and an Instagram picture perfect location.  I really love exploring new places, wandering and capturing great shots with my camera.

Outfit for the day was my new Pull & Bear mini combined with a classic white Mango top.  Always trending, Gingham is a summertime check available to everyone.  Shoes, jackets, accessories, pink, blue or black, whatever takes your fancy.

Check out my photo's of the incredible steps built into the cliff face... and yes I did walk to the bottom and back up!

La ville de l'amour... 

One of my favourite cities to explore.... romantic, magical and the perfect Christmas getaway!

Wrapped up in my fur coat, and with a few cafe stops the many arrondissements of the city were explored.  As true tourists we visited Paris's main attractions, watched a Paris Saint Germain football match at the Parc des Princes stadium and ate too many pain au chocolats!  But my favourite has to be the beautiful French gothic architecture, particularly at the Notre Dame.

The last 2 days of the trip were even more special... Disneyland!   A world totally transformed into Christmas...  the parade, fireworks, Mickey's Magical Christmas Lights, boutique shops and the characters costumes.

Back To School
Home to Kent life...

Houndstooth, plaid, tweed, tartan, prince of wales check, I love a smart checked pattern.  A tailored blazer or skirt with minamilistic pieces provide perfect layers for Autumn/Winter.

Mixed textiles... a lace long sleeved top, frill houndstooth dress and patent shoes were my "back to school" inspiration.  A little more sophisticated with an improvised Chanel hair bow, even the smallest of details can spice up your look!
