Hope you're all doing really well and that you've had a fabulous weekend? If you're in the UK then you're probably more than aware that we haven't been having very summer like weather recently apart from yesterday which allowed me to take some summery looking images. YAY. Today is a totally different story though, as I'm tucked up on my sofa with a cup of tea, messy bun and my laptop. I've been super busy planning for my big holiday to Dubai in October with my boyfriend Daniel and thought I would do a holiday inspired blog post. We're going to be staying at the Atlantis Palm and I'm super excited as I've been lucky enough to stay at the one of Paradise Island, Bahamas quite a few times. It will good to see how they compare and of course I will get some pictures for the blog! I hope you enjoy this post lovelies and I would love to hear from you in the comments section below.

When it comes to hot beachy holidays I pretty much live in Kaftan's! Whether it's to cover up my swimwear or to wear over a pair of White jeans, I just love the way they look so effortless and Chic. I already have a few in my collection, but this particular one from Janet Rerger is just beautiful. I love the embroidered zig zag detailing, which really makes this Kaftan even more beautiful and luxe looking. I also love the fact that it's ombre and not to mention the beautiful azure blue shade, which I think will look perfect when I go to Dubai. As you can see I opted for a bikini under the Kaftan today, but I will definitely pair it will a pair of White jeans to wear out and about for a more covered up look. I'm also wearing my beautiful little sandals from Primark which were an absolute bargain, plus they are super comfortable and pretty durable. As for my accessories I have my beloved Louis Vuitton Speedy in Damier Ebene and my bug eye sunglasses from Dior!
Firstly, let's just pay some love to my beautiful new bloggers planner! I will be doing a review on this little lovely very soon, but it just had to feature in this holiday inspired post! In terms of holiday inspired make-up I like to keep it simple, as there is nothing worse than feeling too made up in a warmer country (especially Dubai) So I tend to opt for a lighter base like the YSL Le Teint Touche Eclact Foundation*, which has been a firm favourite of mine for quite a while now. It has SPF19 which is always useful on holiday and it gives your skin a light coverage which a beautiful glow from within. I also always have to have a concealer handy to hide any pesky dark circles and I'm currently obsessed with my NARS Creamy Concealer which has great coverage without looking unnatural. For my lashes I also like to keep it simple when creating a holiday inspired look, so a few flashes of Benefit's Roller Lash Mascara is all I need to be good to go for the day! When the weather is warmer I don't like to go all out with contouring and I like to opt for a more creamy blush formula like Benefit's Majorette, which is a beautiful coral shade which helps to brighten up your complexion and give your look an instant warmth. To finish off my simple holiday I look I like to add a pretty gloss like the Make Up For Ever Plexi Gloss* in the shade Golden Coral Pink. It has a really lovely light teint and I love the way that his gloss plumps your lips up and makes them look super sassy!
