Hello friends! Apologies for my absence over the last week, I took a little trip away on holiday with my boyfriend to Falmouth in Cornwall, where we had an incredible couple of days and - uncharacteristically for me - the whole trip was completely free of the internet and social media (I think we all need a break from it sometimes!) I have to say, we got amazingly lucky with the weather and from Saturday to Monday had three straight days of hot sun!! So, obviously, we spent all our time on the beach. I've never been to Falmouth before, but I was hooked instantly, it's an incredible place with stunning beaches and a timeless atmosphere that sweeps you right into it and makes you literally loose track of your time and your worries...a few days felt like a few months and it was definitely a much needed break! I thought I'd post some pictures of the trip so scroll down for more!

One of the places we stayed in Falmouth was The Townhouse, a seriously stylish boutique hotel and bar right in the centre. We had two amazing nights here, the room was ideal and downstairs was a brilliant bar with the friendliest staff I've ever met! I wouldn't even look anywhere else to stay in Falmouth now I've stayed here and I want to go back already. Breakfast is included in the price of your stay and the food was seriously incredible...it's safe to say I didn't go hungry on this trip!

When we weren't eating, we spent most of our time at the beach! I still can't get over how fantastic the weather was, who needs to go abroad when you can get Falmouth in the sun?! I even managed to get a bit of a tan! We got in a barbecue on the beach too and I also managed to get myself in the sea - admittedly, the sea was freezing, but it was great to get in and have a swim about! 

On our way home, we also did a quick stop in Dartmouth, which is a really pretty place! We stayed at a lovely farmhouse B&B and explored the area which was a great way to finish off the trip.

I think it's safe to say that I didn't want to come home after this trip!! It was so nice to have some time to relax in the sun and not have to worry too much about make-up and clothes...as much of a cosmetics & fashion lover as I am, sometimes it's the best thing ever to just drop it for a few days and be casual! It was an amazing few days and I want to do it all over again!

Aztec Style

Jacket - River Island
Shoes - Dorothy Perkins

I'm currently writing this post from my bed because I've managed to come down with some hideous summer cold/throat thing which is an absolute nightmare when the weather is so hot! These pictures are from the other day, when I gave my new Miss Selfridge jumpsuit it's first outing! I think if you're a fellow Petite you'll agree it's pretty difficult - bordering on impossible - to find a decent jumpsuit/playsuit anywhere, but I've managed to find this one! I think the adjustable strap thing is key if you're wanting something that isn't in the Petite section. I really love the Aztec print and colour, one of those styles you can wear casually in the day or jazz up in the evening! I haven't worn a jean jacket for years but I found this the other day...it's many years old from River Island, but I've started seeing them popping up in the shops quite a lot, so I'm glad I kept this one!

New Classic

Boots - Faith

I can never stay away from my two favourite colours - black and white - for too long! I found this lovely monochrome playsuit in Topshop recently and really love the style and pattern, plus it's really flattering (and not too long for a Petite). I know it's not really coat weather in the day anymore, but it can definitely get a bit cold in the evenings so always a great chance to bring out the favourite H&M white coat! I haven't worn it all that much (terrified of getting it dirty) but it's a great piece for smart occasions...and such a nice style. Hope everyone's had a good Monday (if that's possible) and at least the sun's shining!

It's Lilac, I Promise

Shoes - Miss KG
Clutch Bag - Accessorize

I do promise that this top is Lilac! I think a combination of the bright sun and my milk bottle pale skin actually makes it look a lot paler than it is, but check it out here, it's a really beautiful lilac cami top - ideal for summer! Yet another recent Miss Selfridge buy, I can't seem to stay out of there at the moment. Hope everyone is having a great weekend so far...seeing as the weather is being so indecisive, my plans involve copious amounts of food and too many episodes of Suits! I'll start the health kick on Monday...

Think Pink

Playsuit - Miss Selfridge
Belt - Oasis
Bag - Armani
Shoes - Faith

There's nothing like a splash of bright pink to add a little bounce to the day! Bright colours certainly make for easy dressing, you definitely don't need a lot more than a belt and heels with a playsuit like this - a little loud, but pink has always been a favourite. The back detail of the playsuit is also really pretty, 'cross back' as it's called and I'm a huge fan! If I could take home every item from Miss Selfridge, I honestly would because I literally want absolutely everything in there. Hope everyones had a good weekend...how is it Monday already?
