Wonderful Holiday Memories

Hey my lovelies,
It’s that time of the week again already!
Happy Hump Day!
‘Things End’….Sigh, they sure do! Like holidays and summer, booohooo :(
But my memories of the amazing time I had on my recent holiday will last forever.
Here a collection of photos of my time in the Amalfi Coast in Italy.
♥ Perfecting the art of eating pizza!
♥ Boat trip to Capri, the stunning hole in the rock
♥ Pretty romantic little town of Ravello
♥ Soaking up the sun
♥ The amazing view from our private hotel balcony, over looking Positano
♥ The BEST pizza I have ever had in Napoli
♥ Boat girls having fun :)
♥ Postcard worthy views from Ravello Gardens overlooking the Amalfi Coast
♥ Gelato!! Nom nom, but so hard to chose what flavour…
♥ On the boat by Positano
♥ One, two, three……JUMP!
♥ Dressed up for one of many romantic candlelight dinners together
♥ Pretty lights; night time view over Positano from our balcony!
♥ Sun bathing from the private ‘no kids, no dogs’ area! Heaven haha.
♥ and more GELATO! My favourite flavour has to be chocolate
♥ Candy floss on ‘The Assumption of Mary’ Festival celebrations followed by amazing fireworks!

The weather here in London has now turned to drab and it feels like summer is well and truly over.
Lucky me that I have these memories to look back on. Did you create some wonderful new memories this summer that you will remember forever? xoxo

A night to remember..

On my holiday in Italy I had many great evenings, but one night me and my friend went out for a super ‘romantic’ dinner at Cafe Positano. This is an lovely restaurant, located higher in the town of Positano. Sitting on the outdoor terrace you can admire the splendid panorama of Positano.  
This is what I wore for our evening out :)
These photo’s were taken on the balcony of our hotel room in Positano, amazing view right!?
I got this dress in London from the shop Oliver Bonas; but the dress is actually from the brand Vera Moda. I was just browsing with a friend and spotted it in the sales rack, pulled it out, had to try it on and was blown away by it. Lucky me it was the perfect size and only £19! I love how it is long, chiffon, flowy. It has little ruffles at the front neckline and a low V shaped back.  
Makeup wise I used my trusted Urban Decay Naked Palette:
I applied the shade ‘Toasted’ all over the lid, then on the outer third and lower lash line I applied ‘Gunmetal’ and I used a mix of ‘Buck’ and ‘Naked’ to blend out and soften the crease. Some black eyeliner in the water line and a bit of mascara on the lower lashes (still loving my lash extensions!) On my cheeks I am wearing NARS Orgasm and on my lips a Lancome Juicy Tube in Marshmallow Electro.  The earrings were a birthday gift by a friend of mine – she got them for me in St Tropez! 
This is me at the restaurant; we had such a FAB and yes ‘romantic’ evening…
The whole restaurant was filled with couples and then me & my girlfriend. 
But you know what, I had the best night with her and wouldn’t change it for the world :)
And this my friends, was the view:
Ahhh…… romantic right? It was definitely a night to remember ♥ xoxo

High Tea Ladies

The day after my birthday, me and three girlfriends went out to spoil ourselves to a fancy high tea in London at the Dorchester Hotel! Tada this is us as High Tea Ladies :)

I’m wearing this silk blue/floral dress from ZARA which I picked up in the sale a while back for only £29. When you put it on it’s very long and shapeless but with a little belt at the waist it becomes a lovely floaty dress :)
Us enjoying some high tea and you know me, I love my scones with cream and jam, nom nom!
And all together now: “YUMMMM!!!” :)
Have you ever had a high tea before??? xoxo

NOTD: Lucky Lucky Lavender

Wow, this week has been a little insane….I honestly can’t believe it’s Friday tomorrow already!! As you know I just got back from holiday on Sunday, which meant work has been pretty hectic; isn’t that always the downfall of a holiday – when you come back you have SO much catching up to do? But on top that I am also looking for a new home at the moment to move into by the end of September, which is proving to be rather time consuming and a little stressful. I currently live in Clapham, which is south west London, but have decided to move north of the river to one of my favourite burbs in London: Notting Hill!! ♥ 
I am really excited but until I find somewhere, it’s all a bit unsettling. However, I have faith and will keep smiling – I know things will work out :)

I have so many great posts lined up that I want to do at the moment but unfortunately I just haven’t had the time to sort photos and write reviews this week. Therefore just posing a quick NOTD. My friend who I went to Italy with is quite the nail polish ‘addict’ so during the holiday every few days she would paint my nails with one of her many gorgeous polishes. Here is OPI Lucky Lucky Lavender:

I love this fun light lilac/pink lavender shade. I think this was either 2 or 3 coats.
You definitely need at least two coats to get a more opaque finish. 
Definitely a cute summer or spring look! Have you ever tried this kind of shade on your nails? xoxo
