I have some very exciting news! I’m a finalist in the prestigious Brilliance in Blogging Awards in the Fashion & Beauty category. I’m absolutely delighted as Britmums is the UK’s largest and most influential network of Lifestyle bloggers and Social influencers so being a finalist is totally amazing.
In a world dominated by twenty something and thirty something bloggers I feel very proud that me, a mum of two in my late forties, has made it to the finalist list, especially in something I love so much as fashion and beauty.
As you read these lines I’ve probably be sunning myself in Spain. I always intend to be super organised and pack weeks before going on holiday, but the reality is very different. As a working mum I never seem to have much time and to be fair packing is something I end up leaving to the last minute every single time.
There are certain things though that I always make into my suitcase – they are my essentials for a summer holiday.
I love wearing dresses in the summer. Not only they are practical -on those 2 days of hot weather we have- but they also look very stylish. White seems to be the colour of this season, and who doesn’t love a little white dress? I’m always a bit worried about wearing white for many reasons, the main one being having young kids that like to clean their hands on me, and let’s face it, I’m a bit of a messy eater myself. However white looks great in the summer or on holiday with a bit of a tan.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few months, you’ll probably have noticed the latest trend in handbags. Yes, for the second year running, basket bags will be the most popular accessory of the summer. Made of straw, raffia or jut the basket bags are back in fashion.
Basket bags make me think of the French countryside, summer holidays strolling by the sea and eating al fresco.
They are really versatile, good enough to wear with jeans and a top on a day out. They are also perfect to keep all your essentials on the beach, and still look stylish. It’s the perfect style to achieve the beach-to-bar look.
I must admit my levels of excitement went through the roof when The White Company got in touch and asked if I ‘d be interested in picking my favourite items from their spring collection. I mean who would say no? The White Company is one of my favourite brands ever and it’s my go to place when buying gifts for friends or for myself.
The White Company name always springs to mind when thinking of affordable luxury, with their beautiful packaging, clean lines and a style that suits not just the minimalists but also the fashionistas out there. And those on the look out for great quality.
Picking favourites from their spring collection wasn’t an easy choice, they have so many gorgeous pieces that narrowing them down to just a few was quite a difficult task.
