Linen... sustainable summer favourite!
Made from the flax plant, the textile is valued for its coolness in hot temperatures. The only problem can be its potential to "screw-up" easily.
I found this yellow co-ord linen set in one of my favourite boutiques in old town Albufeira. Unique colour, loose, comfortable yet casual. I do prefer supporting local boutiques and finding something a little bit different. The whole shopping experience is often more personal too!

Swimsuit season ...
Sadly coming to an end for us in the UK, but just starting for those of you around the world! Beautiful sunsets, enjoying a good book on the beach, relaxing with family and feeling healthy - my favourite.
Swimsuits have definitely become more stylish over the last few years, plunge necklines, high cut, one shoulder and vibrant prints. Figure flattering on all body shapes, and ideal with a pair of shorts/skirt. I was always a bikini girl until the last few years - longing for that brown stomach! But I loved the fun tiger print of this swimsuit and the more revealing cut.

So Portugal in January was ... calm, bright blue skies and warm temperatures,
a great start to the new year! We visited Lagos one of my favourite towns – wandered round some shops, stopped for a bite to eat and then onto Ponta de Piedade.
As it was so warm I could wear a dress and feel the sun on my legs – always important to keep the vitamin levels up! Easy, metallic gold pumps that are essential for exploring and walking but with a hint of sparkle. And my hair in space buns, a really simple but effective hairstyle using a few hairbands and pins.
Enjoy my day capturing the heart of Lagos…

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!
Pull & Bear
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!
