Roman Holiday- My Holiday Secret Tips

When going on holiday you have two options:

1. Do all the tourist attractions

2. Wander aimlessly and see what you discover

In my personal experiences booking all the tourist attractions results in overpriced spots queuing in the heat with a load of tourists, for attractions that none of the locals do, to take a few snaps without taking in your surroundings.

Whereas wandering on holiday gives me such excitement, not knowing what treasures you are going to find, where you might end up, what you might see and who you might meet, no expectations to be disappointed by but just an adrenaline from the unknown. For me this is my ideal type of holiday. Normally in everyday life we have to plan everything to the exact detail in order to get all our tasks and responsibilities done in time where as on holiday you have the freedom of no responsibilities and there is something beautifully indulgent about wandering aimlessly. If this is too much for you and you are the kind of person who needs a plan, take a baby step and choose an area that you like the sound of e.g an ‘arty’ area, a ‘foody’ area then from their wander through it without planning specific places. Trust me it will set you free and holidays will be like never before! Give it a try! I DARE you!

For me being away is also the time to be adventurous in your style and experiment because you are away where no one knows you, giving you the opportunity to create an identity and a story around yourself, always wanted to own your own super yaught, dress like you own a super yaught, because why not!

Autumn Fashion Essentials

img_3686

I love Autumn, crisp blue sky, golden leaves, the perfect time for a long dog walk with my favourite little pup! Autumn means a new fashion season, my favourite layering, lots and lots of layering, different textures, colours, materials and patterns. After previous years picking out the loudest, brightest coats for autumn I wanted to invest in a staple black coat which I could wear over and over again and would look different every time depending on what it was styled with. I tried various different styles but decided on the cape because I feel it is chic and can be dressed up or down, the winter version of a little black dress. I wanted a good quality coat as it was essential that it would last, yet I don’t have a massive budget so after looking around trying to find what felt like the impossible, I stumbled across the idea of TK Maxx. And in TK Maxx I found many beautiful coats by designer labels such as Kate Spade many discounted by more than 50%. The cape I chose had big pockets (always useful), a belt emphasising your waist and had splits in the arms allowing your jumper underneath to be exposed meaning it will look different every time you wear it and can be slammed up for evening with long gloves.
