Malaga Photo Diary.

Roughly two weeks ago myself and the fella went on our holliers to Malaga in Spain. The last time I had been on a sun holiday was 6 years ago so I was more than excited to spend a few days getting an actual tan. 

Generally our six days were spent sunbathing, swimming, frantically applying factor 50 every 15 minutes and drinking mojitos. But we also managed to squeeze a dolphin boat trip, a waterpark and some water activities. We're home about a week and a half now and i'm currently suffering from what's known as post holiday blues, my tan is already fading and i'm seriously missing my biggest worry being which restaurant to eat in. 

I would definitely recommend the area to anyone considering it, it was a perfect mix between a tourist region while it still kept a lot of it's Spanish culture. Anyway enough of this holiday talk it's doing me no good at all, until next year!

Summertime Lingerie

  What girl doesn't love dressing up in lingerie. In a relationship or completely single it's the best way to express your femininity bring out your inner sex god. If you'e like me and your inner sex god is dormant 365 days a year buying lingerie can be a daunting task. So when I came across American lingerie brand Adore Me's latest collection I decided to put together a little mood board based around my favourite set of their latest collection. 

I tend to steer away from classic red and black silk lingerie sets as I feel i'm not exactly 'sexy' enough to pull them off and generally they don't relate to my everyday style. I love cuter lingerie sets, the cut of a little bralette and pastel tones like dusty pink and pale blue. 

I chose this gorgeous yellow set from Adore Me's recent summer collection as I feel the colour and material is perfect for the summer season. I have paired them with a pair of red court shoes in contrast to the yellow colour. I would keep hair and make up simple with minimal eye make-up, a light foundation base, some highlighter to bring life to the face, a few coats of mascara and a pop of colour with red lipstick. Natural beachy waves, teal nail varnish and of course a spritz of your favourite perfume and you're good to go, completing your look and sending you on your way to becoming the goddess you so desire.

That 70's Trend

Fashion is obsessed with all things 70's at the minute. Stemming from the catwalk last year, the trend has stood firm and has since worked it's way into the high street, making the trend affordable for us mere mortals. 

I recently included some pictures of a couple of 70's trend staples in my 'July Style Inspiration' post and touched on what I liked about it. However, I feel that this recent trend is so broad (and lovely) that it deserves it's own post. Firstly, i've included some street style and other bloggers' pictures which I feel perfectly combine the retro style while still giving it a modern twist. Pairing flares with light over sized shirts and button down skirts with chunky knits each one of these looks are completely wearable.

Love the skirt

Now that the revival is here, everyday is pretty much a throwback to decades- old silhouettes with flares and maxis, detailing with fringing and embroidery, fabrics such as denim and suede and of course with the colours, brown, cream, yellow, orange and red. 

I've also put together two different looks on Polyvore showing how I would personally style and tackle the trend.


The trend is expected to span over two seasons, and if you're like me and will continue to wear clothes well after he trend has had it's day and come and gone, I feel that it is well worth the investment with a few pieces from fashions groovy past. 

What's your thoughts on this trend?

Not Nineteen Forever.

A week ago I kissed goodbye to my teenage years and said hello to being a fully fledged 20 year old adult. This, I feel is not a good thing, I don't want to be a grown up and start having to opt for something healthier than chocolate for breakfast and have to start making my own doctors appointments. 

However, if Sex And The City has taught me anything it's that getting older isn't always necessarily a bad thing, and I am only 20, which in the grand scheme of things is pretty fresh out the womb. 

So, I thought that since I am now half way to 40 and a quarter of the way to 80 I would set some little goals and aspirations for myself to work towards in my twenties.. even if I don't achieve them. A wise person once said that setting goals is a powerful process for thinking about your ideal future and for motivating you to turn your visions into reality. So in light of that, here are the small things I would like to achieve within the next 10 years.

I haven't done much travelling my past twenty years on earth, so I would like to change that. I want to live in a different country even if it's just for a few months, experience different cultures and see everything this wonderful planet we live on has to offer and ideally I would like it to be while i'm still young, I have no plans set in stone yet but I hope to start saving towards an adventurous very near future. 

Not physically, I think my days of dreaming that I will one day be over 5'3 are over. But I want to grow as I person. I want to experience new things and better myself as a human. So this means I hope to go to college and work towards getting a degree and one day have a job I love. I even want to grow and expand my mind simply by reading books, there's so much you can do to better yourself by just incorporating small things into your daily routine. 

Learn to be self sufficient
I'm lucky enough to be 20, still living at home and have my mam do a lot for me. So unfortunately this means I can't cook, clean, use a washing machine or all the other womanly duties girls in the 50's were doing as toddlers. Although I don't plan on becoming a house wife who bakes cookies I still think it's important to be able to cook myself a well balanced dinner if necessary, this i'm working on. 

Attain a good skincare routine
I recently read an article that said looking after your skin in your 20s is vital. So, I wear sunscreen everyday regardless of the weather, which I have been doing for the past 3 or so years and I try my best to take off my make up effectively at night and moisturize. This will all ensure that my skin will be as wrinkle free as possible for as long as possible. I also plan on investing in an eye cream once I turn 25, I still got 5 years to be young and wild until then though.

That's all lovelies, i'll be sure to check in in 10 years time and see how much of this I have actually achieved!


I hope you all had a lovely weekend!
