Bournemouth Gardens of Light

DSCN1051It’s become a tradition for me and Stacey to head over to Sprinkles in Landsdowne for a little girlie chin wag. After my usual choice of a scoop of mint and pistatio, we walked into Bournemouth centre. We were greeted by the most glorious winter light display.12346327_10207204806811250_1104156288411298163_n 12346571_10207204806571244_983060113885261766_n

Aren’t these Snapchat photos just a testament to how serious our conversations are? What can I say, ice cream is my everything.

As you walk through the main path in the gardens your way is lit by giant snowflakes.DSCN1053

Every now and again you’d walk up upon lit door frames. If I wasn’t so chicken and super aware of all the people around I would have jumped at the chance to stand inside the doorframe and posed to my hearts content (next time) we walked over to the out door bar, but it was rammed to the rafters so moved on.

I can’t wait to go back for anything exploration and adventure, maybe I’ll even try my hand at the ice skating, maybe?

Truro: Sam’s In The City

The first in a series of wedding posts, if you didn’t know my dad is getting married in Cornwall this weekend. So my brother and I are over in Truro to get celebrating. One of this first celebrations is a girls dinner at Sam’s in the City.

I went for the Chicken and Bacon main. I never go for salad or anything with green in it, but this was totally worth it. The dressing was deliciously sticky and bacon salty and the salad crisp and light.

It’s only right after salad to have cheese cake right? This whole dinner is filled with things i never like to eat, and I’m not a fan of cheese cake at all. This is the New York cheese cake with a scoop of ice cream. Caramel sauce, sweet berries and rich cheesecake, delicious!

Of course the only place with any sort of lighting was the bathroom. 🙁

Long Denim Jacket

I never knew Truro had boutique shops, independent stores and great places to eat. While I was over in Cornwall with family I was able to explore the city in more detail.

 While waiting for everyone to arrive for lunch I ducked into Magpie and Fox, a treasure trove of gorgeous pieces. All unique pieces for all over the world. I snagged this soft denim jacket in the sale and couldn’t be happier, the length reminds me of a pea coat and I love that.DSCN0507 DSCN0514 DSCN0517 DSCN0519-001 DSCN0490-002

Yellow Palm Trees

Yesterday I came back from my four day adventure in Paris. The weather was amazing and about 30 degrees which meant that I could fully commit to the holiday outfit look. DSCN0224

This palm top is a high-low but I love it tucked in, gives me a bit more of a shape. I wore this look around Disney Paris on one of the hotter days. My Camo Converse are the most comfortable choice for the day, I wore them the whole trip.

DSCN0227DSCN0226The stone cuff is a nice detail for me making the whole look more tribal. The ring and the layered necklace are both from Naf Naf. Which was one of my favourite brands when I was younger. We stopped into the Champs Elysees store and picked them up.

DSCN0230-001 DSCN0231-001 DSCN0234-001 DSCN0238-001I added a little blue to my eyeliner, what can I say, holiday fever!

Essentials: Traveling

Does anyone have a packing process? I do, I like to create outfits lay them out on my bed add accessories and shoes then finally I think about what make up I’d add. It’s a long winded process but I love playing around and creating new looks.

This is about as essential as my packing gets, everything I need for a trip away. ( – a tooth brush)

DSCN0102I’ve heard that it’s going to be a heat wave in Paris, and I’ve managed to to pack mainly dark pieces. When I go away ( which isn’t every often, to make it that little extra special I take my favourite undies)

DSCN0112Footies are an absolute must when wearing flats in the heat, and these lace ones are so delicate.

DSCN0117When I first started packing my make up I totally over packed. Pallets and brushes, more then once mascara, a foundation and a bb cream. It was way to much. Above is all the make up I’m taking, aren’t you guys proud?

Urban Decay/ Clinique / No7 / Rimmel / Front Cover

DSCN0120Of course you have to take some spending money, no matter your budget you can always find something special to buy in Paris. Don’t forget your passport!

NB: I will post more style posts I promise, this is a style blog after all! xx
