Travel diaries- Destination Birthday

My love for traveling has multipled over the years. I love getting to see different parts of the world;the foods, the people, art and culture. 

I have been privilaged to spend another birthday in a different country. In all honesty… this is by far the longest birthday celebrations. It seems as though I have been celebrating since I got here on Monday 19th of September  and I am sure the celebrations will continue long after the 23rd. 

Birthdays are not quite right without cake. I went back to the Fontanella tea garden for some delicious cake and breathtaking views.

I ended the day with dinner by the yacht marines. Had the most delicious salad. I did not know that salads could be so tasty. 

See you soon.  X

Wearing t-shirts under Spaghetti straps..

Another 90’s blast from the past that has been trending with both celebrities and fashionistas. 

This layered look is extra cool. While you might not fancy layering in the hot summer months but this works because the layering is super light.  

The easiest way to begin experimentimg with this trend is to layer a white t-shirt under a black spaghetti strap dress.  

This t-shirt midi dress from Topshop actually comes as a one piece but is no longer available. 

I also styled this orange jumpsuit in the same way with a 3/4sleeve body

For the ultimate supermodel look layer with a slip dress.  I have curated these TALL cross back slip dress from Topshop for just £29. I can’t get over the amazing colours. Which is your fav colour ?

Shop these slip dresses here :http://m.topshop.com/h5/product?productId=25196336

Have fun with experimenting with this throw back 90’s style.

Maximizing Maxi’s

As we approach what seems to be the end of the summer months here in the UK..😣😣.

I had to share a post on maxi’s… the ultimate summer piece.
We leggy beauties know how difficult it is to find maxi’s that are long enough.
I opted to shop from the tall connoisseurs here in the UK.


This garden maxi as its called is perfect for your garden parties and luncheons.  The subtle pinks and lilac flower prints makes it very feminine. We like👍.
The good news is  that you don’t have to wave floral prints goodbye just yet.  Long live the floral prints as they come in stronger and bolder for AW/15.


This dress speaks for its self. No fuss , no jewellery needed a very easy wear.


I am a huge fan of wrap front clothing  as it’s very flattering for the curvy lady.  That said, the neckline of this dress had to be pinned as it was too exposed.
While I felt this dress was a few inches shorter than I would have liked, it does show off the my metallic silver sandals perfectly and classic red pedicure.  Not so bad after all.


The halter and back detail on this dress was unexpected and a well received suprised.


Happy summering

Don’t Midi me

Why hello there !


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.



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.;)



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.
