3 Forgotten Outfits From My Phone

3 Forgotten Outfits From My Phone

As I often do, I take photos on my phone and then I forget to make a post showing them off. Normally Mike takes photos with one of our two Canon SLR cameras, but my phone takes some really great photos too so it's nice to have as backup. Today when I went through my phone I found these three gems that deserve to be published as I really love them. 

I got this beautiful dress from Becky in her blog sale and I can't describe how much I love it. I love the colour, I love the fit and I love the material. It's like made to meassure and I love it that it shows off my curves.

Everyday at work Mike and I normally have a "breakfast date" where we make breakfast and I normally get Mike to take a photo or two while the toast is getting ready and the tea water is boiling. And here is another outfit that I had on my phone.

This was an outfit I was wearing when it was a bit colder, but I really like the little extra the faux fur gilet gives to a simple jumper dress.

Leggings from Sainsburys

The last outfit is a day when it was a hat wearing day. I love hats and have quite a collection. It's not everyday that someone wear a hat in my office so I was expecting comments. Surprisingly they were only positive.

What kind of camera do you take your photos with?

Wardrobe Staples Part 1. -LBD

Wardrobe Staples Part 1. -LBD

Are you of those who say that you don't have anything to wear? No matter how much clothes you have got, you don't find anything to wear if you need to find an outfit in a hurry. Are your wardrobe like mine, an eclectic mix of patterns and colours or is it more of a neutral subtle one with things you can easily match? No matter what kind of style you have you got to have some staples that you can put on and feel fabulous in no matter what occassion.

One of these things are the LBD- Little Black Dress. For someone like me who loves colours it might sound a bit boring, but there are so many ways you can make a black dress stand out. Take a look at this beautiful Luciana from Tia for Curvety.*

This is pure elegance and quality. When Mike saw me in this dress he said "wow, that looks amazing on you". I have to admit that this dress made me feel so elegant and the fabric feels so exclusive on my skin. It's definitely a go to dress for a lot of different occasions. I can see myself wearing this dress to anything from a black tie birthday party to a funeral. And with the upcoming Valentines day maybe you need an elegant dress for going out to that posh restaurant you hope your other half has booked.  It's such a classic cut as well and it would work with all kind of body shapes as the fabric is silky smooth and flatters your curvy figure.  

The stunning lace and sequin details to this dress are delicate. Stunning features that makes you ready for any party. 

I accessorised this dress with some silver bangles and these pretty blue flats from New Look that I got in the sales for just a few pounds The patent pink "Lucky" clutch also from New Look that I paid only £2 for!! The colour combination of cobalt blue and bright pink is so pretty and add that little colour to the neutral outfit. 

Curvety is a shop I've shopped from several times. They have lovely party dresses and I even bought my wedding dress from here. If you haven't shopped from them, go take a look as they have quality Kiyonna, Igigi and like this dress Tia. They also have plus size bridal wear so if you are engaged and still looking for that special dress take a look at their Bridal section, or do as I did and find a more untraditional wedding dress among the lovely collections.


And so the holiday started....

And so the holiday started....

I'm on holiday inTenerife with Mike. First holiday of the year which is needed since I've been struggling with my depression and anxiety this winter. I'm writing this post on my tablet and despite having the tablet for a couple of years I haven't written much on it and most certainly not a blogpost. I find it very hard and I don't like it much. I find it difficult to text properly due to my nails that are a bit long and my keyboard only like fingers, it's not responsive to nails.

Over to what this post is about. The three first days of my holiday.

Tenerife is so much more than just loads of drunk English and Scandinavian people, typical tourist places and cheap getaway for sun and party. It's actually a very versatile and exciting island with a lot to offer if you go away from the tourist traps.

It's been lovely days despite the weather has been a bit cold and not much sun. They have a heated indoor pool here which is great to use when the weather aren't the best and the outdoor pools are too cold. I love swimming so no holiday without it. We are staying in Golf De Sur which is on the southern tip of Tenerife. Just 10 minutes drive from Los Cristianos and Playa Des Las Americas. It's more of a quiet area here. Mike and I came here in 2010 and we wanted to come back so here we are. I will make a proper travel guide at a later stage when I have my laptop. 

The first day we came We didn't Do much due to tiredness from the early start we had. We just walked around the area, had lunch In a nice little café And had a takeaway pizza back Iin the flat before going to bed early. Not much excitement at all. 

The next day it was quite cloudy so from experience we knew that we could just drive above the clouds as the tallest mountain in Spain and the third tallest mountain on  an Iisland is here in Tenerife, Mount Teide. With its 3718 meter above sea level we knew that it would be sunny up there, so we set off on a long, but very beautiful drive. On the way up you can take in some breathtaking scenery of the island and the most magical of all, drive THROUGH the clouds!! We did it last time we came, but it is something worth doing again and it was just as amazing the second time around. 

The drive after you have gone through the clouds are spectacular as you are driving into a Landscape so special, it's like you are on the moon. It kind of looks like a filmset with its spectacular views. It out of this world and is something I can higly recommend doing at one stage. Up above the clouds it was lovely and sunny and warm. Lots of people were out and about since it was bank holiday here yesterday. 

Today again was quite a cloudy day, but we didn't get bored. We had a lovely breakfast on the balcony looking out to sea. My favourite way to start a day. We decided to go to the Monkey Land Which Is a little sanctuary for monkeys just down the road from here. I have to say that I
I'm a person who are in two minds about keeping animals in captivity. But this place is a very lovely environment for endangered species And they are breeding them to save the species. Unlike other zoos you can also get I
into the cages and interact with the animals. It surely was a special experience and for me who love monkeys it was very fun and special to see and feed lemurs, spider monkeys and other monkeys. They also havereptiles and birds here, so it was a great afternoon spent out. 

Tomorrow it is supposed to be a bit better weather so I think we will be spending the day by the pool and in the pool. Before we go home we have many other fun things planned. We are going to a very exciting spa with all kind of new experiences for me from steam pools to stone massages. We are also returning to Mount Teide for a lovely day of walking the ravines and eating a packed lunch. Im also planning to get a new tattoo before I go home, so I guess there will be photo updates in a later post. 

But here are a couple of more collages of the beautiful scenery and animals.

Have you been to Tenerife?
