Holiday Handbag Essentials | Fashion

Holiday Handbag Essentials

Soon I shall be sunning myself on holiday in Valencia and it has been a LONG time since I last went on holiday so I am really bloody excited. Today I thought I would share with you what I have in my little holiday handbag. Does anyone else have a little bag they only use for their holidays? 

Personally, I like to keep my holiday bags small because it stops me from shoving random crap into it. I bought this Zara bag a couple of years ago, it's super simple but had a metal chain which I prefer because it adds a bit of weight to the bag so you know you have it with you. I really love Zara for their bags and am currently eyeing up this crossbody bag, which is similar to my current holiday bag.

Holiday Handbag Essentials

First things first, I always take a small little purse, typically speaking I never have big purses anyway but when I am on holiday I keep things really simple which is why I take a little coin pouch. I bought this Coach coin purse last year and I still absolutely love it but I have upgraded to a little McQueen number so it's now going to be my holiday purse, plus it's floral and super cute! I have also been trying out The Body Shop face mists mainly because they were near the till and it was a bit of an impulse buy. I picked up the Mandarin Energising Mist and it smells soooooo good, I also like that this product is make up friendly as I do tend to wear make up on holiday so this works perfect because it's a quick, light mist that immediately gives you a little boost. 

Sunnies!! If my sunnies aren't on my face then they are in my bag, I know they could end up getting scratched but I can be quite forgetful so if I don't pop them in my bag then I will leave them behind. It took me quite a while to find some sunglasses I like, I still have my fave D&G ones but I recently picked up these Primark ones, mainly because they were massive, I still like really big glasses even thought they aren't considered as trendy anymore. Finally we have a hair brand, I mean, when I go to hot countries I tend to keep my hair up for most of the time for two reasons, first being because my neck gets all hot and gross and the other is because it stops my scalp from burning! I have very blonde fair hair, I have burn my parting before so anything that keeps my scalp covered is ideal.  

Things I didn't include in the photos are suncream, random receipts and my boyfs classes case. All of these things are in my bag, especially suncream I just hadn't bought it yet when i took the pictures.  

What do you keep in your holiday handbag?

Mini House Tour | Home

Peach Roses

As you may already know, me and the boyf recently bought our first home together and it's just been so amazing! It's taken me a while to figure out this type of blogpost because I wanted to take lots of pictures but sometimes the lighting isn't right or sometimes we have the clotheshorse up so it's hardly that pretty. Instead of showing you a room by room tour, I thought I would share little snippets of our place. 

The Living Room and Kitchen
We have an open plan living room and kitchen which is really handy for use because we quite like having a chat when one of us is cooking. As our coach house is a newly built property it means everything is neutral colours and we really wanted to find a way of adding fun colour without it being too drastic, so we added yellow but with grey to compliment the harsh yellow shades. 

This little coaster is one of the rose quartz ones from Anthropologie the colour looks a little odd here but I am still trying to figure out the camera on my phone. The side table was bought from Home Sense and it's actually taken me a little while to love this table but now it just seems to fit perfectly. 

Black and chrome in the kitchen, I mean it just makes sense doesn't it? The Kettle and Toaster are from Morphe Richards and have little rose gold accents on them so it adds just a dash of colour in. 

The Bedroom 
We have kept things very simple in the bedroom, it's probably the most neutral of ours spaces just because I love white bedroom furniture so I definitely had a but more influence in this room. 

Personally I would rather inject a bit of colour with flowers and I just love having roses by the bed, I'm such a flower person anyway! Also, that little book under my rose trinket is from 1808 - it's filled with verses and poetry about different life stages.

The boyf actually has two guitars and we have the acoustic one in the hall way, music is one of his biggest passions so I definitely wanted to make them a bit of a feature in the house. 

Ah, my pride and joy sitting on top of our wardrobe, I have always wanted a Fortnum hamper and for Christmas one of my work partners gifted it to me and I just love it. I used it to put the bedding in and it just looks lovely sitting up there. 

I haven't taken pictures of the bathroom purely because we don't have any natural light so every photo has a yellow tinge to it and they just look odd coupled with the rest of the pictures above. Our bathroom is tilled floor to ceiling basically and has a giant mirror which is a bit of a pain to clean but I adore our bathroom so much! 

There we have a little snippet into our new home!
