Skiathos x Skopelos.


After my trip to Bali, I spent 6 days at home  before hopping back on a plane to the beautiful Greek island of Skiathos!

Whilst Bali was filled to the brim with activities, water sports and driving round the island, Skiathos was a more laid back and relaxing holiday. My mum and I had booked this at the end of last summer, and we couldn't wait to explore more of the Greek islands. 
We spent most of the week on Skiathos, but hopped on a boat to go their neighbouring island, Skopelos, for two days. 
The two have gained recent popularity from the film, Mamma Mia, and I was worried they may have been ruined from tourists coming to see the filming locations. 
Fortunately, both islands remain mostly undisturbed and in their natural culture. 
With gorgeous, white buildings and independent boutiques, their towns are filled with the Greek lifestyle we crave. The beaches are covered in white sand with crystal clear waters making tiny, glassy waves. 

The food was incredible -we honestly didn't have a bad meal while we were there- and the locals are so friendly and happy to chat and help with any questions you may have. It's clear they are very proud of their Greek heritage. 

Honestly, there is something about the Greek islands that keep you wanting more. Maybe it's the beaches, the locals, the culture. Or maybe it's all of the above plus some more.

All I know is, I'm craving the Greek way of life

Surf Sistas.


Two weeks ago I set out on a brave new adventure.
Travelling alone to Bali seemed like the scariest thing ever. And to be honest, it was. At 23, it's the biggest thing I have ever done.

I met up with the Surf Sistas crew at Denpasar airport, and had the most amazing ten days.
I've never laughed so much, or been filled with so much love and positivity.
Our days were filled with surfing, yoga and dancing. I met some of the most kindest and caring people, who looked after me and never failed to make me smile. And I know I'm going to be friends with them for a long time. But, maybe more importantly, I pushed myself out of my comfort zone. I set out on some mad adventure that my brain said I would never be able to do -I almost didn't. I did it though, and the world rewarded me with magic!

Good times. Good vibes.
Roll on the next surf adventure.

Coachella | My Fashion Favourites.

Disclaimer: None of the photos are mine but I have edited them.
I have credited where I found each photo but am unsure as to who some of the original photographers are.
If you know, please contact me so I give credit where necessary.


You all know I love bohemian fashion and love to keep up with festival fashion in particular.
In the UK, our festivals are messy. No one gets dressed up. Which is why I love Coachella. 

The music and arts festival basically kick starts the festival season with a celeb filled bang, bringing with it lots of gorgeous outfits.

As you may have guessed, I personally prefer the outfits that you can wear almost day-to-day, but have a little something-something added to them. I don't like when celebs comepletely change their style for the one weekend they attend. Reasons why Vanessa Hudgens always gets it right: she dresses like she's at Coachella all the time. Her outfits are wearable -you may just have to adjust them slightly. 

This years festival was filled with beautiful music and beautiful clothes. It was hard to narrow it down to these. I mean, V attended both weekends. I easily could have made a blog about her outfits alone; I restrained, don't worry!

We Need To Talk About... Girl Boss



Girl Boss dropped on Netflix last night. The 13 episodes chronicle the rise of our favourite vintage badass, Nasty Gal. 
When the trailer was released I knew from the get go that I would be in love. And, oh was I right.
I binged watched the whole show in a day and loved every second of it.

Britt Robertson plays Sophia, the lady who invented the once ebay-page-turned-worldwide-store. The show is a loose retelling of Sophia Amoruso's rise to stardom, based on her book by the same name. The book is still on my to-read list, has been for a while, and so far the show has received mixed reviews. Personally, I'm in love. But you already knew that.
A part of me really dislikes Sophia. She's somewhat self centred, vulgar and doesn't seem to care about anyone else's feelings. But at the same time she knows what she wants, she's crazy, independent and she's unapologetic. So half of me loves her.

My two main loves in life are fashion and music. The former obviously plays a huge role in this show, vintage, hippy and rocker styles are shown throughout, but didn't realise music would have such a big role in the show. The soundtrack is killer. Suzi Quatro, Modest Mouse, T-Rex and Silversun pickups. Urghh, whats not to love!


This show fills me with so much fashion inspo and basically makes me want to go vintage shopping.
Sorry bank account...

Coachella 2017 | My Recommendations.


Festival season is fast approaching! Kick starting the summer with a bang, comes Coachella, the Californian festival spread over two weekends. Since 1999, the Palm Springs desert has played host to some iconic line ups, including, Beck, The Chemical Brothers, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rage Against The Machine and the Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs, to name a few.

Although I've never been, I find myself often daydreaming of dancing under the Californian sun whilst The Cure play in the background. The festival usually has something for everyone. So if you're fortunate enough to attend, here's some recommendations to check out...

We Need To Talk About... Vanessa Hudgens



Oh Vanessa Hudgens. Where do I begin with The Hudge.
I guess I'll start with saying she's my ultimate girl crush. She has been for so many years now.

The actress always looks so effortlessly chic and constantly triggers serious inspiration in me.
Never afraid of trying new things, V loves to experiment with her fashion choices and often pairs clothing how most wouldn't.

Every April, the world awaits the outfits she wears at music festival Coachella. I've posted her outfits from the famous festival here. Seriously, there's a reason why she's called the Queen of Coachella.
In her day to day life, however, Vanessa's fashion choices are simple yet just as boho chic; kimonos, maxi skirts, patterned trousers and floppy hats.


Mixing edgy and bohemian, V basically spends her life looking like she's at Coachella.
I'm in love.

Review | My Little Box March 2017



So last months My Little Box wasn't.... the best. This month, however, they've shown why I love them so much with their #NoFilter box.
For starters it's not exactly a box. No, a make up filled to the brim with picture perfect products!

Back Pocket Believers.


I was trying to work out how long I had been a fan of All Time Low for. Turns out it's ten years. TEN YEARS! 
Since then, I've travelled many miles, cried stupid amounts and made friends all because of them.

On Monday night, I added to that list of miles and tears when I drove to Southampton to see them.

First support of the night was Waterparks. I like these guys. There's a few songs I'm not a big fan of, but most of their music is fun, infectious and all round catchy. Their set was no different. 
Despite lead singer Awstin being sick recently, he sounded great and the Houston trio put on a excellent start to the evening. Will from Creeper also came on to sing "Royal" with them.

Now, SWMRS. Where do I start with SWMRS. I discovered these guys a couple of years ago, and I've never looked back. The play angsty garage rock/ punk and completely light up a room when they play live. I've been hoping to see them for a while now and, let me tell you, they did not disappoint. 
I also met Cole and Max after the show and they were so lovely. (Ignore my ugly, puffer-fish face)

Oh, All Time Low. I don't think this band have ever put on a bad show in their lives. Their hilarious, have perfectly,catchy songs and work so well together. You can't not have fun at their shows.
This is their first tour since switching from Hopeless Records to Fueled By Ramen, and their first playing new single "Dirty Laundry" live. I've heard mixed opinions regarding Dirty Laundry, but I quite like it. I don't really know why they released it as the first single (I'm positive there's better, more upbeat songs on the new album) but I do like it.
Also, they ecided to torture me by putting Therapy and Missing You next to each other on the set list. Both of those songs bring me to tears. Missing You came out when I was going through some really heavy stuff, so you could say it means a lot to me.


As per usual, ATL put on a excellent show.
But what else do you expect from All Time Low.
I honestly couldn't imagine the pop punk world without them.
