Experiencing Cyprus for the First Time Thanks to On the Beach

Back in June, I attended an amazing event called #BloggersBall which was organised by Scarlett London. In between the copious amount of nibbles, drinks, mingling and networking, I grabbed a photo with the On the Beach stall and left my details with them. I let everything slip my mind just a few days later when I jetted of to Benidorm for a week, so imagine my surprise when I received an e-mail whilst I was in Alicante airport telling me that On the Beach had chosen to work with me and send me to Cyrpus in October to review two…

The real reasons people aren’t playing Pokemon GO

You can’t escape it. It’s everywhere. Pokémon GO. You know the one I mean. The one causing people to walk around like zombies with their faces glued to their phone. And then causing other people to sit upon their high horse and tell people they’re “childish” or “geeks” for playing it. And these people might be getting their own way as I heard on the radio on Wednesday that Pokémon Go gameplay is down by 79%. A whopping 79%! I’ve been racking my brain to try and figure out why these people are so against Pokémon Go. I think I’ve…

I’m sure everyone out there has heard of Gigi Hadid by now. (And if you haven’t where have you been?!) She’s an absolute stunner, super stylish, effortlessly cool and a hugely successful model.

Now the 21 year old beauty has one more achievement under her belt: she’s collaborated with the legendary Tommy Hilfiger to design the new #TOMMYXGIGI AW16/17 range inspired by nautical themes and fashion pieces Gigi would wear out and about. The collection is a navy-white medley of sailor shorts, embellishments, striped sweaters, double…

7 things I’ve noticed since becoming a redhead

  I first discovered hair dye back in primary school when my mum started using semi-permanent boxes on her hair, and so, of course, I wanted a go as well. Since then I’ve been through a lot of the rainbow – blonde, red, blue, pink, brown, black, purple, highlights, ombré – but now that I am back to red (all done professionally nowadays, of course), I’ve started to notice some things that I couldn’t quite remember from before… 1. Wearing red on red is scary. I mean, red is an awesome colour to rock, especially on a night out, but…

Benidorm

Sol Pelicanos Ocas, Benidorm

  Blackpool with sun. That’s what they say about Benidorm, right? Quite honestly, they’re not wrong. But I bloomin’ love it. And being big fans of the TV show, we opted for the very hotel it was filmed in – Sol Pelicanos Ocas. Situated pretty much in the middle of town, we were just 300m away from Lavante beach and right next to an indoor marketplace, whilst a five minute walk took us straight to the strip with all of the bars and clubs. We were in a great location to reach all of the main attractions and yet far…

A Countdown of My Fave Fit Brits

And after discussing a number of swoon-worthy men with Sarah last night, I’ve decided to share with you all a top ten countdown of some fabulous Brits who make me weak at the knees.
