My Hair Makeover with Regis Salons

I was recently contacted by Regis Salons to trial their new colour bonding technique at my local Leamington Spa salon which included a cut and colour. Having never had my hair coloured at a salon before I was very excited and I've wanted to go lighter for a while now so this was the perfect opportunity! I had also recently come back off holiday, where my hair was very sun damaged and dry so a hair makeover was definitely needed! 

Who are Regis Salons?

With over 130 salons in the UK, Regis is a salon that you would have seen around. Offering endless options for your hair including cuts, colours, treatments and even just a blow dry if your heading out on the town. Inside the salon in Leamington it's very sleek with lots of branded professional haircare products including L'Oreal and GHDs for you to buy. 

An Unforgettable Holiday at Dreams La Romana

At the end of April I flew to the beautiful Caribbean island of Dominican Republic with the boyfriend and the best thing about it, it didn't cost us anything! I won this holiday through Holiday Pirates which you can read about here and now I get to finally tell you all about my dream holiday at Dreams La Romana.

The luxury all inclusive resort is situated on the southeast coast of The Dominican Republic in Playa Bayahibe, La Romana which takes about 45 minutes to travel to, from Punta Canta airport. In total Dreams have four resorts in Dominican Republic which all look just as beautiful as La Romana, I'm hoping one day I can visit them all! 

My Caribbean Holiday Outfits

After recently sharing my beautiful floral maxi dress from Blue Vanilla on the blog I am excited to share more holiday looks with you! As you will see from my outfits below, my wardrobe is full of florals and summer prints. I do love to select certain pieces of clothing depending on where I am going on holiday and with this trip being to the Caribbean I wanted bright colours, tropical vibes and lots of prints.


This outfit I put together very last minute before the holiday, the orange pleated skirt was only £9 from Very and the floral pleated cami is from New Look only £12.99. I styled this with my pink espadrilles from ASOS and a River Island clutch bag. I sometimes don't like how pleated long skirts look on my petite frame but this one was the perfect length and I love the brightness. With the cami there are so many other colours to pair it with including blue and green.

Protecting your Skin in the Sun

When I think of Summer, I think of going to the beach and sunbathing in my bikini but because I'm so fair skinned I have to slap on the sunscreen. I have been burnt numerous times before, the worst in Newquay in the UK, because of being careless and not reapplying when I have stepped out of the water. Sometimes you may think it's not even that sunny, but believe me you can still get burnt, so read my helpful tips and be careful whilst relaxing in the sun!

Navy Ruffle Maxi Dress

Before I go on holiday my favourite part of the preparation is the outfit planning, at home I rarely get to dress up in the week so being able to do this every day is fabulous and what better place to take outfit photos then in Dominican Republic, with its amazing tropical backdrop! 

One item that I always bring on holidays is a maxi dress, why you ask? Because they are so versatile. You can easily wear a maxi dress from the beach to the bar and be super comfy whilst your doing it! The only problem I do have with buying maxi dresses is that they do design them for tall people and being that I am only 5 ft 2, some of them can be super long, but a pair of wedges does always help with the height problem.

With this maxi dress outfit post I had a little help from Blue Vanilla who kindly gifted me a gorgeous navy ruffle maxi dress from their SS17 range, which actually fit my small frame and is easily affordable at just £30! I have previously worn their designs on the blog before here, I love that their clothing has a unique style and it doesn't break the bank. If you're looking to update your holiday wardrobe they are the place to go...

Holiday Style with JORD Watches

Today I have something very exciting to share not only do I have a GIVEAWAY (NOW CLOSED) for you but the boyfriend is finally joining in on my blog photos. He is normally the one behind the camera taking my shots for Instagram, otherwise known as the "Blogger Husband".

The reason he has joined me today is because the lovely people at JORD watches have gifted us a stylish wooden mens watch. I say mens watch, but because it's made of wood it is versatile so any gender can wear it, so we will definitely be fighting over who wears it next! When it comes to purchasing watches my boyfriend owns a lot - well over fifteen, whereas I've never really been a watch person that is until I discovered JORD's unique watches.
