I must admit that I did get bored with balcony/mirror outfit pictures and wanted a more nature/organic photos backdrop. Well now summer is right around the corner, and the sun is indeed shining, and with news that lockdown resections are now easing, I now thought it was the perfect opportunity to go out into the wood and show you this floral Zara dress.⠀
I brought this dress at the very beginning of this year and was keen to show you guys this as I think it a lovely summer dress to wear, plus, I also thought it would go nicely with my red hat.⠀
For someone who has been cooped up, I must admit that it was nice to go into my local woodland and to walk around for an afternoon. I think it was also lovely for Richard, my husband, to pick up his camera again and to take some photos. The whole pandemic has put a pause on his professional photographer profession, and he hasn’t needed to use his camera much.⠀
It was lovely to put on a dress and to make myself look a little presentable. It got me out of my loungewear for an afternoon. The experience made me feel a little more like myself, and it put me in a good mood. As much as I like comfy loungewear, I’m still someone who wants to dress up.⠀
I’m hoping I can go out more this summer, of course still observing the social distancing rule, and doing more outdoor outfit photos. I’m also hoping this summer to wear more of my summer outfit and to feel more like myself.⠀

Usually, when I do an outfit post or picture, I like to dress up and show you some pretty dress. But this time I thought I would show you a few of my casual wear and what I wear on a day to day basis. I must admit, as much as I love to dress up, I wouldn't exactly go to Tesco in them. So on a day to day basis, I'm usually in jeans and a top. ⠀

If I were to describe my style, it would be summed up in two words: quirky and fun. I'm sure you realise by now I don't like boring black fashion – I do fun, bright, colourful style. Case in point is this Collectif watermelon dress. You can't get more quirky and fun fashion than this, can you?⠀
I like my clothes to reflect a lot of my personality, eternally youthful while also quirky and fun. Yup, that pretty much summed up me. The saying, you are who you are by the clothes you wear, really does hold up with me.⠀
I'm still that little girl who had a dressing up box as a child and would play dress-up; now I just have a wardrobe filled with more clothes than I could ever need as my dressing up box. I still like to have fun with my clothes, and I haven't lost that childhood wonder about clothes. And I don't think I ever will.⠀
Overall, what I'm saying is that this Collectif watermelon dress reflects who I am as a person and also my style. I also believe it represents how fashion shouldn't be all serious; it should be fun and should put a smile on a person's face.⠀

Life Story | Cocktails and beaches

Posted on

You guys always seem to enjoy my little life story update. So I thought I will share with you a few of my recent phone photos. Lately, it’s all cocktails and beaches.

Quite frankly, my life has truly been all about cocktails and beaches. Not that I’m complaining. And when I think about it, I’m very much a lucky girl.

You see, what with the weather being what I consider in temperature turn – ‘just right’; I decided to make the most of it. As we all know in 2-3 months’ time. I will be complaining how hot the weather is.

So while I can, I want to enjoy the weather and go out and do stuff. That stuff, basically mean us (husband and I) spending the day at a beach.

First up there was my day at Brighton. Which I have already written about in a previous blog post. However, I thought I would show you this cocktails I had at Brighton, can’t remember the full name but its popcorn salted caramel creamy cocktail/milkshake. So good!

Next up, a day at Bournemouth Beach. That day out was aimed at just us having time where I wasn’t thinking about blogging it. I have actually covered Bournemouth beach in a previous blog post, so there was no need to repeat myself. I shamelessly didn’t take many pictures either of the day.  When we went the area was very busy as we went during the May bank holidays/half term, I didn’t feel comfortable taking too many photos on the beach what with kid and families running around.

However, here is my narrow view of the beach at Bournemouth. Not much to see, but you get an idea of how it was a lovely sunny day.

After we spent some time on the beach, we then had some Pina Colada cocktails. My second lots of cocktail.

And finally my last cocktail, I had this while having a meal at TGI Friday (like I said earlier, I have been a lucky girl recently!). Ok so there isn’t any more beaches, but strangely enough – while we were sitting there they put on Hawaiian music.  These cocktails this time are, Barnamint Baileys (which, oh my god you need to try out!) and a Toffee one (can’t remember the name again).

Oh alright, I do have one more cocktail to show you. This was taken a month ago and look how pretty they are. I just love the colours. Which one would you choose?

I know what you are going to say, oh look at that Anna has turned into an alcoholic cocktail drinker. Ok the past couple of weeks I have, and this by no mean a normal occurrence for me. I rarely – if ever drink.

Anyway, I will wrap this up by saying we’re only in a few days into June and summer has only just began. So who know, I could be reporting you on even more cocktails and beaches in a month time.

    I would definitely go for the pinky one. It looks like guava. The blue one looks . . . no thanks.

  • Oh those cocktails look tempting. I do love a pina colada but they are too easy to drink. loved your photos and my son-in-law’s friend runs a pub in Brighton. #blogsharelearn
