Why The Sea Is My Happy Place

IMG_7333.JPG

I’ve always found the sea very relaxing, it’s one of the most beautiful things on Earth and whenever I’m at the beach everything just seems to be okay. The gentle lap of the waves combined with the fresh sea air clears my head and lets me focus on myself, whilst reminding me of the beauty in the world around us. Not only that but I also seem a lot more inspired when I’m at the beach. I’ve been known to have complete writers block but after visiting the sea I’ve written countless chapters of books, poems and blog posts! The beauty of the sea is simply astounding.

Reconnecting with yourself is an important part of mindfulness and the sea offers you the chance to do just that. The natural wonder reminds you that focusing on your mind, body and soul is an integral part of life and by doing so you can take the spirit of the sea – its beauty and freedom – and implement it into your own life.

How To Travel In Style

IMG_7345.JPG

My friends and family always laugh at me because I always go dressed to the airport as if I could possibly be heading to a fancy restaurant the minute I land. It’s not my fault I want to travel in style! I always feel very glamorous and confident at the airport, I’ve never really been able to explain why, but I want my outfit to match how I feel. Plus, the airport is probably the most likely place I’ll meet a celebrity, if I ever will, so I hardly want to be looking like a slob. This reason also makes my friends and family make fun of me but it’s true!

I usually tend to wear a dress or playsuit when travelling because I want my legs to be free; I suffer with really bad swelling in my ankles and feet whenever I travel so not restricting my legs is the best plan. For this trip to Portugal I decided to wear this dress as it’s comfortable and light enough to keep me cool when I arrive in my rather hot destination. The blue and white colour scheme is very bright and summery, and also reminds me of Europe! The white detail across the top adds something a little different which I really like.

I paired this dress with my favourite shoes of the moment – my suede brown sandals from New Look.  I’m really sad that I can’t seem to find these online, I don’t know if they were an in store exclusive, but I’ll link some alternatives here and here. You can always pop into your local New Look and see if they’ve got a pair. I’m just in love with the tie ankle detail – it reminds me of ballet shoes and as a ballerina myself that makes me very happy. The heel height is small and perfectably wearable, which I put to the test on a long day travelling.

Pocket Sized Perfume

When going on holiday you don’t want to be lugging giant perfume bottles around. Firstly, there’s the risk of the glass bottles cracking whilst you’re travelling (which is always going to be devastating isn’t it?) and they also take up precious space in your case. Continue reading
