Travel Lookbook denim on denim

This is such an oldie but goodie. A classic ! The first thing that came to mind when putting this look together was ‘I don’t want to look like a cowgirl’. Not that there is anything wrong with cowgirls or cowboys. It just was not my desired look. I personally tried to stay away from denims the same shade and weight…. You should too. image While the rips on this jeans are not visible in this picture. Ripped jeans add a element of trendiness to this look. image image Don’t be afraid to add a bright lipstick to complete the look. A pop of colour makes life more interesting. Anything from shades of pinks to reds and oh maybe a deep berry would do the trick. image Ofcourse with every outfit you must cross your T’s and dot your I’s with some accessories.

Dubai on a budget.

On booking my holiday I heard so many stories about how expensive Dubai was:oops::oops:. I wanted to have a blast without denting the bank account.

Did you know that in the same way you can get online deals with Groupon UK,you can also get deals in Dubai with Groupon Dubai :o:o:o:o:o:o:o:o:o:o:o. I knowww right! !!!. How did I not know this until day 2 of my 5 day trip.

http://dubai.groupon.ae/
Use the link above to get deals of meals,  treatments , hotels, activities and much more.
I saved over 100aed on the dessert tour using Groupon Dubai.
Be sure to book early as most deals are subject to availability.

Also..I found that Time Out was a god send when it came to finding out things to do.¬† Ladies make sure that you utilise the Tuesdays ladies night. I love a bargain so buy one get one free on drinks gets a huge thumbs up from me👍.

The great thing about being a lady in dubai that you do get preferential treatment. On the trains there are designated women and children only areas.  Be sure to look out for these because you stand a better chance at getting a seat in one of these carriages than the main carriages.  Did I mention that the trains are spotless.

Finally . .. taxi’s in Dubai are mega cheap and it’s easy to get carried away with taking taxi’s everywhere.
I saved approx 100aed in taxi fares by using the train to visit the gold souk.  This was one of my travel highlights as I got to use the Abrak too.  It adds a different yet culturally rich dimension to what was a very glamorous holiday.

Don’t Midi me

Why hello there !

image

Today I am rocking out in a tea length wiggle wiggle dress … otherwise known as a midi dress.

Midi’s have made a massive come back and so now you can add more class to you closet with one if these.

image

image

This dress from Asos is my current day and night go to dress. Give me a pair of flat pumps and I would go from a lady who likes to lunch to casual shopping spree with the girls in an instant. It is totally versatile.
Wiggle wiggle dresse you are cut to perfection and you flatter and flatten all the right places.;)

image

image

One thing I love about midi is that it is not restricted to a specific body shape. My slim and curvy ladies can pull this off and so can my petite and tall beauts.

Have fun with experimenting with dress lengths and don’t let anyone dull your midi shine.

See you on the next post.

Play time

With the summer FINALLY visiting the UK it’s officially play time.

I am totally not leg confident but this playsuit adds variety to the everyday choice of shirt, dress or trousers.

image

I love the skirted front of this number.  It is not as covered as I would have liked but I subconsciously feel less exposed.

image

The deep cut back means you need to have your bra game on point.  I decided to wear my clear back bra from Debenhams with this playsuit and it worked well. If your too blessed to not be able to go bra less you might want to consider a good  bra before purchasing.
For the curvy ladies getting a good fitting bra can be the bane of our lives not to mention a multi-functional one.

I am not convinced that this playsuit is the most comfortable but I know for sure that it brought the heat.🔥🔥🔥
And that ladies is the price we sometimes have to pay.

image

With an outfit that speaks volumes my accessories were kept to a minimum.

image

Words can not describe it but there is something about having your hands in your pocket and strutting “your stuff”. We see it on the runway all the time…It’s oozes confidence.
