Black Lace Dress OOTD


Here is my OOTD - even though it is more an outfit of the evening!  It is a very form fitting dress which I love, just one thing to be careful with is putting your arms through the sleeves as they are so delicate and can snag or rip easily.  It is a simple but great outfit for dressing up.

Black lace dress from H&M with matching smokey eyes.  I always think smokey eyes goes well with evening outfits as it is just a bit too heavy for the day.

I used Clarin's smokey eye pallet which has a smattering of gold in the black powder.  I am also wearing Essie's Violet nail varnish to try and stay away from looking too gothic!

This dress was an absolute bargain at £15.00 and is great for a restaurant or club with its lace sleeves it can pass for both.

OOTD white H&M dress

Hello my sweeties, 

I've literally become obsessed with this gorgeous white dress from h&m.  It is light and airy and perfect for these humid summer days.

It is great for during the day, or in the evening.  Here is my day look, with a pair of Moschino sunnies, and no makeup.  The perfect cute outfit to go for a coffee and croissant.  In the evening, a pair of heels and dark lashes transforms this dress.

The best part is it costs just £24.99.  Such a good bargain that I bought one in navy too.  I didn't get a shot of the dress standing up, but it is just above the knees.

Definitely my favourite summer staple so far!

Rubber speed boat in Italy along the riviera

Good Morning!

I thought I'd share my favourite moment from my holiday in Italy - renting out a rubber speed boat to explore the Italian Riviera!

I made sure I perched on the front to enjoy all the fabulous views whilst sunbathing, leaving the steering to the others.  Tempt ing as being in control was, I didn't want to risk every one (phones and all) going overboard!

Renting one of these boats is a great way to explore more of the country your visiting, whilst having a whale of a time. 

My Top Tips:

  •  I tried to look the part by wearing my favourite Moschino bikini :P
  • Wear sun protection with a higher protection than normal - the sea reflects the light and there is no shade so watch out!
  • Take water - no where to buy it from
  • A waterproof Go-Pro is a must have for fantastic underwater shots without worrying about getting splashed
