Bournemouth Summer Staycation

Colourful beach huts in BournemouthI started this year with the intention of enjoying more stays on home turf than usual - and I'm pleased to say, I've kept to the plan! Knowing good weather was on the horizon, I booked a stay in Bournemouth for last week, packed my suitcase and headed for the beach.  Having only ever spent fleeting moments at the seaside resort, I was pretty excited to spend a few slow-paced days there. It was the kind of staycation that had no pressures, no plans and no rain - bliss!  So, with three days to play with, what was on the agenda?

Flirty Summer Dresses: That's A Wrap!

UK fashion and travel summer bloggerI can't even tell you how much I'm loving this warmer weather!  It's not surprising really; I'm an August baby and so summer always holds a special place in my heart.  One of the best things about this time of year has to be the opportunity to indulge in tons of pretty, frilly dresses.  Right now?  I'm gravitating towards wrap dresses.  In between a couple of recent staycations (travel diaries coming soon!), I whipped out this perfect deep blue linen wrap-dress, a gorgeous new pair of sunglasses and immersed myself in sunshine and flowers at a picturesque hideaway.  If wrap-dresses have also got your attention this season, read on and check out a ton of other pretty options at the end of this post...

Mii Cosmetics (New!) Collection: Tropical Daydream

Mii Cosmetics Tropical Daydream CollectionOkay, so by now nobody should be surprised by my undying love for Mii Cosmetics.  Ever since discovering their lipsticks at a Champneys spa a couple of years ago, I've been obsessed with their cosmetics - natural beauty, but better.  I adore makeup that doesn't require constant touch-ups and attention, making their long-lasting looks ideal.  For anyone who feels the same way, Mii Cosmetics' new summer Tropical Daydream collection is exciting news!  Flattering pops of colour, wide-eyed beauty and shades of pink?  Yes please!

A Picture-Perfect Day At Blenheim Palace

Blenheim Palace Summer Travel DiaryFor obvious reasons, summer tends to bring out the 'wanderers' inside of us all, which goes a long way in explaining why I got the overwhelming urge to travel over to Oxfordshire and re-visit Blenheim Palace!  I get similar vibes from the country house to that of Waddesdon Manor; the grand, expansive, tourist-attracting appeal.  With an entire day to play with, have a little peek at the many beauties of Blenheim Palace ready to be explored, featuring both building and gardens...

The Wedding Guest: Maxi Dress Edit

Wedding Guest Maxi Dress Summer StylingCan I get a hell yeah for maxi dresses?!  There's something indescribably relaxing about floating around in a floor-sweeping dress underneath the sun.  Speaking of which, one of the occasions that tends to set us all off on a search for the 'perfect' dress is weddings!  Personally, I adore summer weddings; the beautiful settings, the mix of fragrances, the mass of food, the colourful outfits.  What's not to love?  Needless to say, there are tons of wedding guest-targeted dresses around right now, but for the sake of all things dreamy, let's show some love for maxi dresses...
