Holiday Outfit 9

I wore this beautiful red dress from a local boutique for dinner! I absolutely adore this red dress...I love the colour and the ultra flattering style. I have the same style in black (I usually don't buy dresses in different colours but I've done this with 2 dresses including this one this summer!). 

I teamed the dress with some old silver earrings and this beautiful safety pin cuff

Holiday Outfit 8

Holiday Outfit 6

After a wonderful day sightseeing I got all dressed up for a lobster dinner. I wore this beautiful maxi dress from Zara with my Massimo Dutti necklace! 

Holiday Outfit 5 - Sightseeing Day

I went sightseeing in Rhodes and my favourite part of the day was visiting the Acropolis at Lindos. The views at the top were spectacular, but the weather was unbelievably hot! I couldn't get over the heat when walking to the top, but it was certainly worth it.

I wore an jumpsuit from H&M last year with my silver jelly sandals from Primark.

Holiday Outfit 4

I wore a skirt from a boutique, a strap top from H&M, clutch from Primark, belt from Therapy and sandals from River Island. 

Holiday Outfit 3

Clean and Clear Morning Burst

I've used Clean and Clear Morning Burst exfoliating wash a few times, and I have been impressed with how silky soft it has left my skin.

I decided to try it when I saw that is was oil-free, as washes that aren't oil-free generally give me spots. Also, as the Lumie Clear hasn't 100percent got rid of all of my under the skins I thought I'd try an exfoliator to see if this would help buff the skin and 'lift' them. It hasn't got rid of the under the skins left over as such - although I have only used it a few times - but it has made my skin softer and appear brighter! Anything that makes my skin glow is alright by me...

I really like this product so far and will continue to use it, unless there are any negative effects - I will update you if there are!

OPI Drip Dry

For the first time ever, I used OPI Drip Dry. This was my first experience of a product that speeds up the drying of nail polish. If I am honest, I've always doubted how good they would be.

I used an OPI nail varnish - Dim Sum Plum - and the Drip Dry that I had purchased. I researched on the internet to find out exactly what to do - I couldn't find any instructions on the packet. After applying 2 coats of nail varnish, and a top coat, I dripped 2 drops of the lacquer on to my nails. I couldn't believe the results. The lacquer really did dry my nails super quick as within a minute they were dry enough to touch without leaving funny marks in the polish!

This is a product I will definitely be using again. Although I love painting my nails, some evenings I really can't be bothered to sit for ages not doing anything whilst my nails dry. I can now paint my nails without being extra careful not to catch them on anything afterwards.

Swatch Watch

I bought this watch the other day from Swatch! I have been going to the gym more recently and I have really missed wearing my watch, which is surprising as I never even used to wear one. I bought this ultra light, rubber/plastic watch in a gorgeous turquoise to brighten up working out. 

Travelling time

Today I'm Wearing....

Quick Outift of the Day.

Today travelled for quite a few hours in the car, so I wanted to wear something that was comfy but I could still go out for a spot of dinner when I arrived. I chose this LOVE top and leggings - as jeans can be uncomfortable when sitting in the car for hours! I also wore my Linzi jelly sandals.

Heated Rollers

I adore heated rollers, and even more since seeing how beautiful bouncy waves look on Kate Middleton. I've always used Carmen set to go travel rollers, which were my Mum's years ago, but they only include 9 rollers which just isn't enough as I have very thick hair. I have been on the hunt for new rollers with at least 12-15 rollers for a wedding that I am going to....and I have recently purchased Babyliss Pro Professional 30 piece set.

Before I review these, I have tried another set of rollers owned by my friend. These were Babyliss Thermo Ceramic Heated Hair Rollers. I was not particularly impressed with these as my hair didn't curl particularly well and the curls fell out within 15-30 mins. The rollers didn't seem to heat up too much, perhaps because they were 'flocked' (covered with a non-slip material).

As a result, I researched many different rollers on the internet and decided to purchase Babyliss Pro Professional 30 piece set. I have just used them and I am happy to report that they have left my hair full of gorgeous curls and heated up nearly to the level of my old Carmen rollers - which from reading many reviews is a result!

I would recommend these rollers for anyone with thick hair like mine, whose hair does have a tendency to drop. They are expensive - £36-£49.99 depending on where you get them- but for me they are much better than the Babyliss Thermo Ceramic Heated Hair Rollers £26.99, as I can actually use them with good results.

Kaftan & Jeans

Today, I wore this Kaftan from River Island (in the sale for only £15) and my beloved DTN jeans (I can't find the make anywhere anymore)! There are lots of beautiful Kaftans available on ASOS, although not a similar colour scheme to mine. 

I teamed my jeans and kaftan with my silver Primark sandals, a Silver 'disco ball' bracelet from River Island and a pearl bracelet from Primark.

Tan and Paisley

I bought this belt from Massimo Dutti in the sale, for around £5.99 - I can't remember the exact price, but it was about that. I teamed it with my H&M paisley dress which is just such a beautiful and flattering colour, my silver CK watch and silver jelly sandals from Primark. 

Chain necklace

I purchased this necklace from Massimo Dutti in the sale, only £14.99!! I can't wait to wear it...

Weekend Evenings

I wore this dress out for dinner and drinks. The dress is from a small boutique, the shoes are New Look wedges (I love these from ASOS), the bag is old from Primark (similar here) and the necklace is from Primark at only £4.

House of Harlow?

I have had my eye on House of Harlow necklaces for a while, but when I was in Primark the other day I saw this necklace for only £4! It is a very similar style of the House of Harlow necklaces and I knew I would regret it if I didn't buy it.

Safety Pin Cuff

I was given this bracelet a few weeks ago as a present, and I absolutely adore this safety pin cuff!! It is so unique and unusual - and a beautiful statement piece. 

Olympic Fun!

Yesterday I visited the Olympic Park at Stratford to watch the Women's Preliminary Diving. I had a fantastic day - the atmosphere in the Park is incredible.

I wore my blue lace and chiffon dress from Primark, River Island gladiator sandals (they are amazingly comfy), my pale pink bag from M&S, denim jacket from Topshop, an old tassel belt (from Warehouse I think) and to support Team GB my Mum made me a hairband!

The hairband consisted of a navy bow, with red and white ribbon stitched to it, and a team BG hat which I bought from Primark! I had many compliments throughout the day.

Here are some photos:
