FASHION: #AsSeenOnMe ASOS High Waist Deep Plunge Swimsuit

Friday, 31 July 2015

I loved our hotel. It was white, clean, crisp and minimal which made it just such a chilled place to stay. So of course a pool day at the hotel was the perfect opportunity to get my new white swimming costume out. 

This particular swimsuit is from ASOS and has been super popular with other bloggers (ASOS stock it in loads of colours.) I loved the way it looked on everyone esle so I thought I'd give it a try although I was pretty anxious about wearing it to start with. You never see me wearing anything low cut here on my blog because I don't really do it and I wasn't sure if this cut was right for my body shape.

Luckily, I was pretty pleased with how it looked, paired with my massive Primark sunglasses. It was comfortable and everything seemed to stay in place - not that I much apart from laze around on the Bali Beds all day, drinking cocktails and dipping my legs in the pool haha.

LIFESTYLE: Hotel Life - ME, Mallorca

Wednesday, 29 July 2015

The hotel itself was so pretty and we both loved just spending time there. 
We ate breakfast outside in the sun every morning. I didnt really want breakfast included but Andrew did and again, I'm glad he made me because it was really lovely. Everything was so well presented and I loved that we had a reason to get out of bed early and make the most of the whole day!
How pretty is the ASOS beach dress*. Perfect for breakfast to beach!
 One night, we visited went to the hotels own restaurant, Pez Playa. It was pretty expensive but I had won the main course over on their twitter page so we only had to pay for starters and drinks. The food was delicious, we had torreznos to start followed by paella - duh. We also had lovely views out over the beach. The only thing that wasn't great was the service but we overlooked that because it meant more time with out lovely view!
After a day at the beach, I came back to see that Andrew had ordered a plate of chocolate covered strawberries to the room! mmm
and with so many mirrors around it was hard not to take a few bikini selfies every day

EVENTS: Primark, Barry M, Lush, Swimwear365 & Waitrose

Monday, 27 July 2015

I always look forward to Primark's press day as it is the shop I buy most of my stuff in! I was literally just there this morning (I bought two bikinis for £1 each!), I was there last night and I popped in before work on Thursday too and bought something each time! As for the press day, I was not disappointed! I fell in love with loads of wintery pieces - especially these super cute little pom pom pumps and will be buying a pair for sure as soon as they hit stores!

Barry M Festival Dinner
This was just a lovely get together for dinner at The Hospital Club in aid of Festival Season coming up. Adam showed us some simple festival looks with lots of gold glitter and really inspired me! Then we all sat down and ate together at the most amazing pretty festival themed tables! We all left with a goodie bag full of festival goodies from make up to ear plugs haha. Thanks Barry M for having me along!
 LUSH Stratford Launch
The lovely LUSH PR girls invited me along to the new store opening at Stratford Westfield which was is my local when it comes to LUSH (apart from when I pop into oxford circus after work.) It was a super quick one for me as I was meeting a friend for dinner but of course I made some time to have a look around the new store and even got to make my own bath bomb. The new store is only a couple of shops away from its old location but it is airy and spacious and I'm looking forward to my next trip to pick up some new bits! I even heard that they might be stocking some Oxford Circus exclusives at some point!

#CelebrateSummer With Swimwear356
Swimwear356 certainly picked well when they decided to host their rooftop #CelebrateSummer party on one of the hottest days in the past ten years. I had just left a horrible claustrophobic event at Mahiki and rushed to Maddison's to enjoy some sunshine. The drinks were flowing from the moment I arrived until the moment I left. There was loud music playing and an amazing atmosphere as well as lots of pretty bikinis laid out everywhere. It was the perfect evening and I will be definitely be making reservation for Maddison's again - I can't wait to go back. I also left this one with a pretty impressive goodie bag full of holiday essentials - how amazing is this Models Own polish they gave me?!

 Xmas In July - Waitrose
Waitrose was magical. It brought that amazing Christmas magic and excitement to July and even though it was the hottest day ever it has made me super excited for Christmas. There were so many delicious things to look forward too and of course I got to sample everything. I fell in love with all the super cute cakes with faces, everything covered in edible glitter and the big roast dinner laid out on the table. I definitely stuffed myself silly but how could I resist? It's been a whole 6 months since I ate anything christmassy!

LIFESTYLE: My TV Debut - BBC2 Hair.

Friday, 24 July 2015

Megabus have announced a wonderful competition, a gallery full of people sharing their #megamoments and it got me thinking…what would mine be?  If you follow me on social media you might have noticed me going on about my TV debut on Wednesday night haha - this was definitely a mega moment for me.

Way back in Feburary - Fashion week to be exact - I was contacted by BBC2 asked if I would like to be a hair model for the show. Of course I said yes straight away!

I met with the other bloggers in Cafe Nero where we all got introduced and micked up! We were all going to a fashion week party later that night and were told to come up with our perfect hairstyle for the occasion which our stylist had to create for us! I was paired up with Kellie and I asked her for a fishtail plait and lots of volume in the top. She later confessed that she had no idea how to do a fishtail plait although you would never know considering what I ended up with. She worked her magic and from the outside it looked exactly how it should. No one would have known about the hundreds on tiny bands holding it all together underneath! 

After we were ranked (you'll have to watch to find out where my hair came - Ok you won't I'm too excited to tell you I came first) we set off to the ON|OFF party.

Whats Your #MegaMoment?

LIFESTYLE: Exploring Mallorca

Thursday, 23 July 2015

Yey another holiday post! These photos are just a few from we took while we were out exploring. At the beginning we weren’t too sure about going back to Magaluf as adults but we wanted to stay at the ME hotel so we went for it. We were both so pleased that we did because it really did pay off - we had the amazing hotel and Magaluf really wasn’t as bad as we imagined it would be from being there four times between us in the past. 

We ventured into Palma on our first full day. It is a super pretty old town and we wanted to see it all so we hopped on a red tour bus. Afterwards we walked around all the old cobbled streets and ate ice cream. I loved my outfit for this day - both top and shorts from Primark of course!

Most of the other days, we loved spending at the beach which came right up to the back of our hotel. I bought a rubber ring and just lazed around in that and splashed around with Andrew in the sea - neither of us are really sun bathers. After a few hours there, we would wander further down for lunch and more ice cream.
In the evenings we would go out in search of paella and pretty cocktail bars by the beach. One night we did go the BMC – Magaluf’s super club - how could we not?! We had been there together five years ago so we had to go back for a visit! On the last evening, Andrew took me to an amazing restaurant but I have a whole other post on that!

Until the next one..
