My Summer so far… <3

I’m sorry I haven’t posted in a while, I’ve been on holiday and this weekend I went to London for the weekend with a couple of other bloggers for dinner and drinks (it was lovely). I’m having a busy Summer (/year) so far and time is flying wayyyy to quickly.. I can’t believe I’m 23 in a couple of weeks. CRAZY! So I’ve decided to do a random post on what I’ve been up to so far this Summer…

HEEEY GUYS & GALS!

I’m sorry I haven’t posted in a while, I’ve been on holiday and this weekend I went to London for the weekend with a couple of other bloggers for dinner and drinks (it was lovely). I’m having a busy Summer (/year) so far and time is flying wayyyy to quickly.. I can’t believe I’m 23 in a couple of weeks. CRAZY! So I’ve decided to do a random post on what I’ve been up to so far this Summer…

In March I was lucky enough to spend two weeks in Los Angeles and yeah I know March isn’t Summer, but it’s close enough and lets be honest it’s the most exciting thing I’ve done in my entire life! I had such a lovely time and even got the chance to visit Too Faced HQ in Irvine and let me tell you this, it was pure heaven. I had an exciting tour around their offices, kitchen and studio and lets just say every room was full of makeup, very pink and the weather was lovelyy!

I later returned home back to, well, not so sunny England and reality gave me a huge slap in the face. I returned to work the following week but on the plus side I managed to complete my Level 4 Diploma in Digital Marketing with a distinction so life wasn’t all that bad (clapsss).

In June I went on a lovely holiday with my boyfriends family to Turkey. I had a great time blogging for World Duty Free at Gatwick airport, the girls were so lovely and helpful. I even got the chance to have my brows done thanks so the lady on the Benefit Cosmetics counter who let me try out their new range. Have you seen/tried it yet? Seriously, it’s a must! I can’t believe how shamaazing their brow product range is now since their recent launch. I highly recommend heading down to your nearest Benefit retailer and asking if you can test out their variety of brow products because they have introduced so many new shades.

Ok so after raiding the Duty Free shop in departures we jetted off to Turkey and basically spent 10 days chilling. I say chilling, I actually faced 2 of my biggest fears and feel pretty proud of myself. I swam with a wild, yes wild turtle that was just swimming around in the lagoon and I also went parasailing! Seeing as I’m afraid of heights and anything that moves I felt like I had accomplished a lot in such a short space of time.

I returned home from Turkey last week and the following day was lucky enough so spend the afternoon at Lush Cosmetics HQ. I had a tour around their offices and tested out some bath bombs. I later went for a luxurious facial in their spa and if this blog post is to teach you one thing, it’s that Lush facials are THE BEST IN THE WORLD! I mean, I’ve not had a facial in another country but I’ve definitely had a few facials and this one was totally unique and worth every penny of the price they charge. Basically, you’re there for around an hour and a half and you get to pick the Lush products you want them to use. You’re then taken to the most beautiful, cosy room.. almost like a cottage where you lay down and listen to a sound track that was recorded right on my doorstep! Well, not literally ON my doorstep but just up the road at Chesil beach. It’s soooo relaxing and the therapist massages you for a whole 60 minutes as well as stretching out the muscles in your arms and legs. I then left there smelling of a walking lush store (perfect).

This weekend just gone I had a manic but enjoyable weekend in London with my two blogger pals, Amy and Victoria. We had a lovely afternoon tea at Sketch – the most picturesque lunch I ever have consumed. If ever you go to Sketch then honestly you’ve GOT to check out their bathroom! You literally pee in pods, that’s all I’m gunna say.

After afternoon tea we got ready for dinner at Bodos Schloss in Kensington where we spent the evening eating and consuming far too much alcohol. We managed to spend the whole night in the VIP area drinking plenty of cocktails, rose and vodka. It was an enjoyable night drinking and dancing the night away! I highly recommend visiting Bodos Schloss for a top night out and we will definitely be returning again soon.

Ok, so that is my Summer so far, it’s been pretty amazing to be honest. Oh yeah, I can’t believe I forgot to mention, my boyfriend proposed to me at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills whilst on our trip to LA (how romantic?) I will never forget both our holidays this year and can’t wait to go back in a year or two.

Please let me know about your Summer so far and any holidays you have been on because I’m always on the hunt to book a holiday for next year. I’d love to hear about any adventures you’ve been on.

Thank you for taking the time to read my post and I hope you all have a great week!

Kelsi Dagger Brooklyn Sandals <3

I am amazed at how beautiful this British weather is! It was forecast to rain this weekend yet today I spent the day in a short sleeved top and caught the sun. Who needs to go abroad for Summer when the weather is like this, huh?

Heyyyy,

I am amazed at how beautiful this British weather is! It was forecast to rain this weekend yet today I spent the day in a short sleeved top and caught the sun. Who needs to go abroad for Summer when the weather is like this, huh?

Anyhooo, I decided to publish a post on my gorgeous new Kelsi Dagger Brooklyn sandals. You may have heard of this brand before as they are HUGE in the US but have begun releasing their high quality footwear in the UK too. You can currently browse and buy their gorgeous range from Office Shoes. These black sandals are made of leather and feature twin buckle straps on the sides making them easy to put on and take off. They offer a slight gladiator style which is totally in this season, plus they’re super comfy! What I love about these sandals is you can wear them with just about anything, so you don’t need to spend ages planning on how you’re going to style them. I love them with a pair of rolled up jeans but they would look great with a pair of shorts too. I went out on a shoot earlier on this week so show off my snazzy new Kelsi Dagger Brooklyn sandals, check them out! <3

Summer Sandals! <3

I am loving the weather over the last few days and so I’ve been on the hunt for some Summer footwear. I fell in love with these gladiator style sandals and think they are a must this season!

HEEY! <3

I am loving the weather over the last few days and so I’ve been on the hunt for some Summer footwear. I’ve recently bought some new black flip flops and I’ve also got some cute leopard print sandals from last year but I fell in love with these gladiator style sandals and think they are a must this season!

There is a cute shop in my local town called Limelight that sells gorgeous clothing, footwear and accessories. They have recently started selling these lovely gladiator style sandals in a variety of colours for just £29.99. They’re comfortable to wear and easy to put on with two buckle straps that go across your foot. I love to style them with a pair of high waisted shorts and a white strappy top which helps bring attention to their strap design.

Tan coloured sandals are my absolute fave because they look great with just about everything. How do you style your gladiator sandals? <3

You can visit the Limelight Facebook page where you can browse & buy their gorgeous range of clothing by clicking here.

Get skinny for Summer! <3

I’ve been trying to cut out all chocolate, crisps and generally unhealthy stuff over the last couple of weeks in the hope that I will shed a few pounds. I have a sweet tooth and so cutting out chocolate & sweets has been tough but I know it will be worth it in the end. I wouldn’t have been able to do this without Skinny Coffee Club…

Heeey!

I can’t believe this amazing weather that has hit the UK over the last few days and I hope this is the start of a good Summer. I’ve been trying to cut out all chocolate, crisps and generally unhealthy stuff over the last couple of weeks in the hope that I will shed a few pounds. I have a sweet tooth and so cutting out chocolate & sweets has been tough but I know it will be worth it in the end. I wouldn’t have been able to do this without Skinny Coffee Club <3

If you love a coffee fix then this plan will be perfect for you! Who would have thought there could be a diet program around coffee, ey?!

I’ve started off with one pack of coffee which is enough for a 28 day weight loss program. It has been proven to burn fat fast, speed up your metabolism and also cut cravings. I only had my chocolate cravings for the first few days of starting my diet and I find that drinking the coffee replaces the chocolate bar I would usually have at either lunch time or when I get home from work. Not only that but this coffee also helps reduce the feelings of bloating I get whilst on a diet.

2 weeks in to my diet and I can already feel the difference. They do say that the coffee works even without doing any exercise but I have been going swimming 2-3 times per week and have been taking the dog out for walks on the weekends. I do find it tough to fit exercise in to my daily lifestyle but I didn’t want to start this diet without doing any exercise at all, especially as I am going on holiday in 8 weeks so the clock is ticking!

I’m really happy with the results so far and am going to keep persisting with my diet routine. Eating healthier, drinking the coffee and cutting out the rubbish foods makes me feel happier in myself. I feel more awake at work, more motivated and my skin also looks so much healthier!

Skinny Coffee Club currently have an offer of 20% off which is ending at midnight tonight.. Just enter NEWME at checkout <3
