The White Dress I Can’t Stop Wearing ft. Sagrada Familia and …

I promise that the Barcelona spam is almost over (sadly) and I’ll be back to regular posting by next week. I think theres maybe two more outfits and a city guide.. but I’m sure you’ll love those right!? Speaking of outfits, can you even count how many times this dress has featured? Its an almost daily feature to my Instagram account and has also featured in my ‘summer dresses when it isn’t summery’ blogpost and the Barcelona lookbook too! Its from Nobodys Child and was actually the first piece that I’ve received from them but I’ll definitely be going back for more. The few pieces that I ordered all fit like a dream so I can’t wait to try more – especially into the new season! JavaScript is currently disabled in this browser. Reactivate it to view this content.

Tied Up Stripes and Accidental Bad Etiquette.

Why hello there, it seems like ages since I wrote a post but I’m back with a new Barcelona style guide, written on a new MacBook after the drama this week. Officially kicking off part two of #CopperTravels to Barcelona! You’d be surprised at just how many pictures I took while we were there, topping almost 250 on my phone alone and barely any of my outfits. Its difficult not to get engulfed in culture when you’re in one of the most beautiful cities so I’ve already planned to go back with Adrian in the Autumn time – it would look so beautiful when the leaves are falling, right?!

I’ll tell you first that most of the older buildings won’t let…

Street Style in Barcelona Side Streets.

Welcome to the beginning of #CopperTravels to Barcelona. A new ‘mini series’ sharing everything about my trip in one go.. because I couldn’t wait to share it and knew you’d love it all. Theres lots of street style from Barcelona, vlogs, guides, lookbooks and even a whole bunch of my photography. I spent most of my time wandering the streets with iPhone in hand, taking pictures and videos of absolutely everything.. literally. These images were taken down a street just outside of the Gothic Quarter. We’d visited a little indoor food market called Mercat Princesa with the most amazing treats from all over the world (pizza, tapas, tacos, burgers.. you name it). I’d definitely recommend it if you’re with some friends and looking for a few drinks and ‘nibbles’. JavaScript is currently disabled in this browser. Reactivate it to view this content.

How I Afford To Travel | Travelling On A Budget.

This post is quite heavy, so if you’re not in the mood to read there is a video version (here) on my YouTube channel. My most asked question since the beginning of this year is ‘how do you afford to travel so much’ and its quite a tricky one to answer given that we haven’t done things the typical travellers way. So its about time that I sat down and properly spoke about my previous adventures and let you know how I afforded everything and a few tips if you’re hoping to travel yourself. Now our travelling has only consisted of three countries in six months which doesn’t seem like much – but I’ve actually only been in England for around 8(ish)weeks since the beginning of 2017. Our plan isn’t to travel fast though. We haven’t thought up a route over a set period of time. To us its about…

How To Wear Summer Dresses When The Weather Isn’t Summery.

It’s no surprise that I miss being in sunshine. Like, reaaaally miss! It’s like my happy place, dancing around in the heat wearing summer appropriate clothing with a cocktail in hand. Whenever I’m in a warm place, nothing matters and the world almost melts away a bit and I fully emerge myself into the sunkissed beach bars and cosmopolitans. For right now, I’m back in England for a little while and wishing the drizzle would leave. Isn’t it funny how us Brits spend a fortune on Summer clothes that we wear maybe once or twice a year? Its like we constantly hold on and hope that this year will be different, warmer and more European. JavaScript is currently disabled in this browser. Reactivate it to view this content. Nobody’s Child have been on my radar for quite a while because of their loose styles and classic prints.. with a price range…

The Ultimate Procrastination Doodles.

Working from home has its ups and downs which I’m going to be writing a post about soon. Some days, I power through my workload and seem to get absolutely loads done. Other days, I just can’t focus and everything in my house becomes a distraction. In between the instagram browsing, my current favourite distraction is the Doodle Your World app by Ribena. It lets you add fun Ribenary characters over any pictures you take and add them into your world. I personally love the pink flamingo and most of the pictures I send to my friends have him flying around haha! You’ve probably noticed the moving characters across my instagram story recently too! This post is only a quick one because I couldn’t wait to tell you that Ribena are giving me the chance to host a week-long competition where you can win a great Ribenary prize. All you have to do…

My Social Media Addiction: What I Learnt By Losing My Phone At …

Yep. You did read the title of this post right – I dropped my iPhone in the sea and I didn’t get it back. So I decided to tell you all about my social media addiction. The story really needs to be explained in full because essentially it happened because of my never ending hunger (which makes the story more comical). So we’d come back from Dubrovnik after some shopping and sushi but of course, I was still hungry. In my bid to eat more I went onto the deck to rifle through a box for some food (red pepper sauce for dipping crisps in to be precise). It was around 11pm so I was using my iPhone as a torch until my grip slipped and I watched it fly off the boat and drift down into the deep waters of the marina. I don’t know why I assumed the phone would float but it definitely didn’t.…

Croatia: Through The Lens.

After spending six weeks exploring Croatia while playing photographer on the boats, I managed to get quite the collection of pictures that I wanted to share. But rather than speaking about them, I’ll let the pictures do the talking..

Petite Styling in Starigrad, Croatia.

       Hello there, its been a while hasn’t it? After gallivanting around Croatia playing photographer on the boats, I’m finally back in the UK for a little while. I don’t know how long I’ll be here or where the next adventure is taking us.. but we’ll get into that another time. For right now I want to share the first of a few Croatian posts, beginning with an outfit (of course). This post comes to you from the beautiful town of Starigrad, situated on the island of Hvar and boasting the most gorgeous lavender in Europe (at least, thats what I think). When we parked up the boats one afternoon, Adrian and I decided to wander up through the back streets. Lined with pale stone and red rooftops, the streets all have the same charm no matter which part of Croatia you stumble upon – and the palm trees which definitely…

Fresh Faced with Garnier.

Over the last couple of months I’ve been giving my skin a well deserved break, opting against make-up on most days and favouring natural skincare to help unclog my pores and give me back the blemish free face that I once had. My skin seemed to hit a phase this year where it had enough and decided to erupt – possibly down to coming off birth control (accidental, I’m going back on it) but it also could be climate changes, stress or a number of other things. So with that all in mind, I used Croatia as my testing ground for change. I took minimal makeup with me and decided to embrace being natural. In total my base was only applied maybe a handful of times and usually consisted of concealer and bronzer only with foundation remaining untouched. I honestly just didn’t care for wearing makeup, I liked being able to rub my eyes…
