Flowers and Bees

Olá! Bom dia!


My first blog post from my new home.  Yes!  My sister and I moved to Portugal last month.  A decision that was a long time coming…

Beautiful sunshine, delicious food and my favourite beaches… I cannot wait to share with you my idea’s this year.  A new home, a new venture……surely a new wardrobe?!

Time to step into Spring with the ultimate effortless but high impact shoe…the backless loafer.  Great to start airing those feet and welcoming some warmth.  I fell in love with these black leather bee detail loafer’s whilst shopping in Dubai last November…and have been dying to wear them.

Top-up the look with another season favourite… power frills, embroidery, ripped jeans and florals.  Kinda girly but not too much!


Tchau for now! I am off to enjoy the sunshine! x

Stripes & Frills
Wishing for an endless summer?  Trying to cling to your sunny staples?!!  I definitely am!

Autumn is officially here......which sadly means wearing more clothes.  Even on our last night in Portugal, it was chilly. But it did mean I could wear my new favourite dress from Zara  #thatdress

Flowy, easy, flattering and bang on trend.... I cannot stop wanting to wear this dress!  Button cuffs, buttoned back and feminine frilled hemline, I appreciate the small details on this dress.  

Minimal accessories and an effortless bun... this look was all about the dress.  Just remember subtlety is key....

Disneyland Paris
2016 started with a new job, lots of hard work and wintery weather.... so by February it was time for some fun. An opportunity to pretend we were children again... it was a great weekend in Paris with my sister!

Check out my top tips and essentials to make the most of your trip!

HOLLY'S TOP TIPS:

* Disney Magic Hours - If you stay in a Disney hotel you can enter the parks from 8am rather than 10am.  Great way to take advantage of short queues on popular rides and character photo's!

* Fastpass - Save time in the queues.  Take your fastpass ticket showing a return time to go on the ride without the long queue!

* Disney Express Luggage Service - On arrival head straight into the park whilst your luggage is taken direct to your hotel.  On departure, leave your luggage with the hotel where they deliver this straight to the Eurostar check-in terminal.  No lugging your luggage!

* Pause Gourmande/Tea Time Treat Vouchers - These vouchers offer 1 hot/cold drink and 1 treat (Magnum ice cream or sugar doughnut) from 3-6pm in the park.  Be sure to use these to keep you going from lunch until dinner time!

ESSENTIALS TO PACK:

* Comfortable footwear - Trainers, boots or shoes are essential when you are on your feet all day.
* Gloves, scarf, hat/headband - Chilly mornings, late evenings and some fast rides ... you will be grateful to keep warm!
* Satchel bag/backpack - Camera, tickets, snacks, water etc ... take a bag which you can hold on both shoulders.
* Camera - So many photo opportunities... a good camera is a must!
