Steal Their Style: Bella Hadid

The first post I did in this series was Steal Their Style: Gigi Hadid who is, of course, Bellas sister. They both have a great style which is why I decided to do Bella second instead of some of the other people who I have in mind.

OOTD: Hidden Fashion

Banner saying Outfit of the day hidden fashion wearing a pink and red shirt dress with ornate print and white shoes.
 Today's outfit features a dress and a pair of shoes from Hidden Fashion. I have been a fan of this brand for a little while and own numerous things by them. Their items have great prices and they are always having massive sales which means even more of a discount (My favourite was the extra 80% off on top of sale prices!) Today I'm going to be showing you an outfit I was recently sent.

*The items in this post were sent for the purpose of this post. All opinions are my own.

 The shirt dress is in this amazing ornate print with pink and red as its main colours. I love the feel of the material which is an almost silk/satin feel. This dress could be worn more casually paired with jeans or in a more dressed up style like I am here. It comes with a waist tie so can be adjusted to fit your waist nicely along with having the option to wear it without the belt.

Wearing white lace up shoes
The shoes feature a gorgeous front lace up design with a chain design on the toe straps and a perspex 'window' on the sides of the shoes which I will admit did get a little bit steamed up while I was wearing them. They are such a unique, cool design and would work with numerous outfits. They are a block heel which means I can actually walk in them and feel secure to the foot. The laces can be easily adjusted to fit and they can be worn in numerous ways, such as the laces can be twisted around tour ankle meaning a tighter fit (this is shown on the website). They also have a zip on the back so no need to keep messing with the laces everytime you want to wear them.

Top 3 Honeymoon Locations

Banner saying Top 3 Honeymoon Locations with beach scenes in the background.
 *This post is sponsored by All opinions are my own.

Today I'm bringing you my 'Top 3 Honeymoon Locations'. These are exotic places that I would love to go on my Honeymoon to if that occasion ever arises! These places are what my idea of luxury is and are all filled with amazing things to see and do. So let's get this started with my first choice.

Picture of an area of the maldives.
The Maldives

How beautiful do The Maldives look? The crystal blue water with the huts 'floating' over it and then the beautiful white sandy beaches lined with gorgeous palm trees. It literally sounds like my heaven! It's warm all year round (Average 25'c - 29'c) and as someone who is always cold, that would be perfect for me. Whenever I think of luxury The Maldives definitely come to mind first. You can check out to see all their all-inclusive luxury holidays to the Maldives. It is made up of around 1200 islands and a lot of the luxurious resorts have their own private islands. How cool is that?!  

Picture of some boats in Phuket.

My next choice is Phuket in Thailand. Another place that features beautiful white sand beaches and crystal blue water. Phuket is filled with lots of history including Buddhist monuments and historic temples along with many gorgeous nature reserves. It is also known as Thailands party capital. Whether you are someone who loves relaxing, exploring or partying then there is always something to do in Phuket. Two things you definitely need to do is visit Phi Phi Island which is the stunning location of the movie 'The Beach' which I watched for the first time last year. It is a huge attraction which apparently doesn't disappoint. The second thing is to go see the Big Buddha which is a huge 45 metres tall Buddha statue that has the best 360 degrees view of Phuket.

A bali beach scene.

Last but definitely not least is Bali. Bali is another paradise island with its breath-taking, culture-filled scenery and beautiful beaches, it is a place you must visit. It features many exotic temples with amazing architecture set against lush jungles, it is definitely an explorer's paradise with so much to see and do. One must-visit place is definitely the Tagallalang Rice Terraces with their unique rice slopes for a great photo opportunity. Bali is definitely a perfect destination for a romantic, adventure-filled Honeymoon.

  Which of these 3 Top Honeymoon Locations would you love to go to the most? Let me know in the comments below and be sure to check some more of my travel posts below.

There May Be Some Cracks In Any Holiday Experience

Banner saying There May Be Some Cracks In Any Holiday Experience with sunset background
 *This is a contributed post. All opinions are the writers own.

Going on holiday and travelling to new places is something many people look forward to most during the year. Weeks and months of working are only fully paid back when you can let your hair down and truly focus on all of you and your needs only. In among the sunshine and the brilliant feeling of being somewhere totally never-before-seen by your eyes, there is a but. It can be a big but, or a small but, depending on the quality of your holiday. The but is, but just be on the lookout for the cracks in the holiday experience. This doesn’t mean you must have some kind of robocop scanner in your eyes, searching for and identifying mistakes and errors every which way. It does mean that, put your brain on 95% standby and 5% diligence. Enjoy your time and bask in the feeling of being in an atmosphere unrecognisable from home. Just keep an eye out for these inadequacies that could help you in the end.


A not so guide, guide 

It's common to have a holiday guide as the rep of a travel agency. They will either meet you at your hotel once you have checked in, or you can go to one of their local offices at the destination. They may even have a policy of simply meeting up in a local cafe. What you need to look out for are guides who don’t know much or care about the destination and therefore you holiday in the process. Look for signs that they’re not very talkative, they don’t share much information with you in person. Those that rely too much on smartphone communication to inform of you of what kinds of sights to go see and take too long replying to text messages of questions, will leave you with a lot left to desire. What can you do? It's simple, ask for a change of rep by phoning the local office of the travel agency. There’s no point in trying to be nice when you have spent so much money to be on the holiday and have it be sub-par because of one person.

Check before you eat 

Do not rely on the past reputation of a restaurant. Be prudent and check the latest reviews of a restaurant that you fancy going to. Restaurants can change and transform into a shell of their former glory. The last thing you would want is to have food poisoning due to a bad meal by a restaurant that you thought looks good because of the previous reviews that could date back over a year ago or more. You shouldn’t suffer in silence because holiday illness claims are something of an ace in the hole. It's very much a real possibility that you can claim back compensation in the thousands to help you recuperate the losses of having to pay for medical bills in a foreign country. It's also some reconciliation for the ruining of your holiday which you also could have paid thousands for. Always check the restaurant you want to dine in, is still going strong and keeping hygiene of the utmost importance. A holiday guide that seems disinterested in your enjoyment should be dropped for another immediately. Don’t argue or fuss, just contact the local branch office to make the exchange.

What cracks have you experienced during your past holidays? Let me know in the comments below.

Why Is Travel So Important?

 Why Is Travel So Important? with sunset backdrop and plane wing
*This is a contributed post. All opinions are the writers own.
Black camera On White Poster

If there's one thing that you're likely to hear more than just about anything else throughout your life it's the statement that everyone needs to get out into the world and travel as much as possible. Of course, you might be the kind of person who loves travelling more than anything and gets out of the country at every opportunity. However, if you're the other kind of person, the one who would rather stay at home and doesn't really get what all of the fuss is about, you could well be missing out on some wonderful opportunities. The truth is that travelling really can be as wonderful as everyone says it is. With that in mind, here are just some of the reasons why you should take the chance to embrace travelling.

It teaches you about yourself

It can be pretty tough to answer the question "who are you?" when it comes down to it. After all, we are all so heavily influenced by the world around us that there's no way that we could escape the context in which we were raised. The culture that you were brought up in is going to have a huge impact on the kind of person you are. Getting out into the world is a wonderful way of removing yourself from that context. That way you can really get to know yourself in a way that simply isn't possible when you spend your time somewhere familiar.

It reminds you that other people and cultures exist

Not only does travelling allow you to get to know yourself but it also lets you get to know other people too. After all, if you're getting away from everything that's familiar and ending up in a totally new place then you really have no choice but to throw yourself into that new culture and to get to know the people around you. Doing this not only helps you make new friends but it gives you a whole new perspective and reminds you that your little corner of the world isn't the only thing that matters.

It lets you discover new places

Of course, even if you're not that much of a people person, travelling helps you get to discover new places that you might never have encountered before. You might think that your hometown is the coolest, most fun place in the world but there's a pretty good chance that there's somewhere out there that will put it to shame. In fact, when you're travelling you may even find a place where you want to put down roots. From finding the perfect property for sale in Los Flamingos to discovering a love for the style of living in somewhere like Thailand. The only thing more freeing than visiting a new country is settling down there.

It gives you much-needed space

The modern world is a busy one. Not only that but it can be incredibly crowded. It can often feel as though people are constantly around you, even when you're alone. After all, even if you're by yourself you've still got your phone, your computer, and all of your social media to keep you company. Getting away from all of that and visiting a new place can help to refresh you and get you back to yourself in a way that you might never be able to at home when you're surrounded by friends, family, and work.

Experiences are more important than stuff!

If there's one thing that gets in the way of a lot of people being able to travel as much as they would want, it's money. Travelling is not always cheap and that can get in the way. But that doesn't mean that you'll never get the chance to travel to new places. The truth is that cutting back on buying things to free up funds for travelling can be a great idea. The truth is that the memories of an amazing experience are almost always going to end up being more valuable to you than any junk that you fill your home with.

Of course, the truth is that travel isn't necessarily going to be right for everyone. If you do discover that you're the kind of person who really is just happier staying at home instead of exploring the world, that's okay! However, the only way that you're ever going to be sure of that is if you get out there and give it a try. After all, most of the things that people come to regret are the chances that they didn't take. Of course, once you've been away from home you come to appreciate it a whole lot more since you know what being away from it is really like.

Why A Visit To Andorra Has To Be On Your Bucket List

Banner saying Why A Visit To Andorra Has To Be On Your Bucket List with a black and white image of Andorra.

*This is a contributed post. All opinions are the writers own.

The world is full of incredible places to visit and incredible places to see, ranging from tropical jungles to arctic frontiers where polar bears still roam wild. Everyone’s got a sense of what the big name tourist hot spots around the globe are, ranging from wilds of Canada to the beach and party culture and sweltering heat of Australia, or the ancient landmarks and Renaissance-era frescoes of Florence. A name that you might not have seen on that list before, however, is Andorra. Andorra is one of the smallest countries in Europe — the sixth smallest to be exact — and rarely makes the headlines. But there is much to see in this gorgeous mountain-bound land and there are ample reasons why your next holiday should involve a stay in some of the top Andorra resorts. Here’s a look at just a few of the reasons why a visit to Andorra has to be on your bucket list.
It’s a country you can walk across
Andorra covers an area of just 468 square kilometres, with a population of just 85,000 as estimated in July 2015. One implication of the country being so small is that it’s possible to follow various hiking routes and trek directly across the country from one side to another during your stay. While this isn’t a feat you’re going to manage on a half-day visit to the principality, if you’re in Andorra for a week you should have no trouble crossing the entire territory on foot, either in the company of a professional tour guide and group or on your own using the right apps and tools. You don’t tend to meet too many people at dinner parties who can brag that they’ve crossed an entire country on foot and bragging rights aside, the memory of the experience is bound to be priceless.

It’s a mountainside paradise

Andorra isn’t just any country, it’s a stunningly beautiful one, nestled in the Pyrenees mountains. Andorra is home to 65 summits over 2000m high and anywhere you go, the view is going to dominated by soaring peaks, lush steep valleys and azure lakes. If you like skiing and mountain climbing, Andorra is the place for you. Even if you’d rather take things easy, however, you are unlikely ever to grow bored of the stunning vistas and crisp mountain air.

It’s one of the most unique countries in the world
Andorra doesn’t follow the standard template for a country, by any means. For one thing, it is officially ruled by two “princes”, the Spanish Bishop of Urgell and the President of France. What’s more, Andorra has no official currency of its own. In the past, French Francs and Spanish Pesetas were used while today they use the Euro. Andorra is also the only country in the world whose official language is Catalan, although French and Spanish are also frequently spoken. Andorra is in other words, a one in a million kind of destination and well worth the visit.

Preventing Theft On Your Summer Holidays

Banner saying Preventing Theft On Your Summer Holidays with picture of luggage and valuables.
 *This post is sponsored by DPP Law. Click here to find out more about DPP Law and how they can help you with any legal solutions you might need.

With summer finally being here you might be planning on going on holiday at some point as I know I sure am! I'll be giving you a few tips on how to keep safe and 'Preventing Theft On Your Summer Holidays'.

Keep your valuables locked away - Most hotels and accommodation tend to have safes and you must put them to good use! Make sure that the safe is stuck to the wall or floor as it is much safer that way as no one can just come and carry it away. Keep any of your valuables you don't need on a day to day basis locked in there, things such as your passport, travel documents and your money, which brings me on to my next point.

Only take daily money out with you - Don't take your entire holiday budget out with you every day, try and come up with a budget and just carry what you need that day. I have been doing this in recent years and have certainly felt much safer, was I ever to have my bag stolen I'd know that I'd still have a stash of money hidden away. This actually happened recently to someone I work with, she had her bag by her feet while eating and when she went to get it, it was gone. She had 300 euros in there, her phone AND her bank cards. This again brings me to my next point.

Make sure your bag is secure - I tend to use backpacks a lot at home but while I'm out and about in the day on holiday I use smaller bags and/or my pockets to store my items as long as the pockets are either zipped or tight and deep (if that's even possible in female clothing!) A bag which can be worn more on your front is definitely safer as you can see it at all times and I also tend to keep my bag on my knee when I'm in a bar or cafe for that extra bit of security. 

Leaving your accommodation each day - If you are on the ground floor and people can see straight into the room that you are staying in, then it is best to close your curtains before you go out for the day, this then makes it harder for someone to know whether you are in or not. This also means they won't be able to scout out any valuables you may have accidentally left lying around. It is also best to make sure all your doors and windows are locked before you leave.

Don't leave anything unattended at the beach - If you plan on having a beach day and you all want to go swimming then it is best not to go all at once as then your belongings won't be left unattended for anyone to take. What my boyfriend and I do when we go to the beach to swim is to make sure we only take our towels with us and leave everything in our room so that we don't have anything valuable to think about.

Social Media - If you are going on holiday and your house is going to be left empty while you away, then you probably shouldn't be advertising that you are on holiday on Facebook or any other social media site whether that be the dates you are going or any posts while you are there. 

A couple of other tips I have are 1. Don't fall for any scams that may be waiting in the street to target you. There are many scams in all different places so it could be a good idea to read up about any that may be about in the area you are visiting before you go so you know what to look out for and what to avoid. 2. Only travel with official taxis. Many people will be about trying to scam travellers into paying higher, more expensive fares. Go to the official taxi ranks or call them/ask someone official.

6 Canary Island Festivals You Should Check Out

6 Canary Island Festivals You Should Check Out Banner with various festival photos.
 *This post is sponsored by Holiday Gems. All opinions are my own.

I have been to various places in the Canary Islands many times before but I have never had the chance to check out any of their yearly festivals. Here is a list of the '6 Canary Island Festivals You Should Check Out' which I will definitely be looking into visiting myself. You can book these places through

The Carnaval de Santa Cruz de Tenerife

The Carnaval de Santa Cruz de Tenerife is held every February for 15 days. It is the Capitals most iconic celebration which sees the streets filled with fancy dress, lots of music and tonnes of colour! It has loads of events including competitions, dancing and parades. If you plan on going, it is advised to book in advance because the area is in great demand at Carnival time.

Corpus Christi

Corpus Christi is celebrated on the Thursday after Trinity Sunday and is held in La Orotava in Tenerife. It is celebrated with folklore music and parades. For this holiday the streets and squares are closed so that they can be covered with colourful carpets made with various types of flowers and coloured sand. Then a religious parade pass over the carpets followed by a huge fiesta of traditional music and dance with everyone dressed in traditional clothes.

International Kite Flying Festival

The International Kite Flying Festival is exactly what it sounds like. It started in 1987 as a group of people who were passionate about flying kites and is now a huge recognised event. It is held in Corralejo in Tenerife each year. There is kite exhibitions, workshops and competitions. 

Baile De Magos

Baile De Magos is a folklore street party with performances from many different groups. It is based in Tenerife and everyone wears traditional clothing and enjoys traditional music and cuisine. Mago means peasant or country people.

Fiesta Del Diablo

Fiesta Del Diablo means The Devil's Fiesta and is held every year on the 8th September in the early hours of the morning where people gather to dance on the streets of Tijarafe on La Palma island and wait for the devil to appear. Around 3am the standard carnival characters appear and then everyone starts singing something along the lines of  'tra-la-la-la, the devil's coming soon' until he appears amid a chaos of sparks, flames and fireworks. 

Lots of people wearing white throwing talcum powder.

 Los Indianos

 Los Indianos is actually part of The Carnaval Santa Cruz De Tenerife that I mentioned earlier in the post. The origins of this are from the Indianos (Indians) who returned from Latin Ameria with great wealth. The tradition has now become people wearing white and throwing talcum powder about while carrying briefcases around full of fake cash, which sounds like a whole lot of fun.

Have you ever been to any of these festivals? If so which and if not which one sounds the most interesting to you? Let me know in the comments below.

Top Signs That You REALLY Need A Holiday

Top Signs that you REALLY Need a Holiday Banner with a beach in the back.

*This is a contributed post. All opinions are the writers own.

At times, you may feel as though you are in desperate need of a holiday. You may also feel that no matter what you do, you just can’t seem to focus at work or even relax at home. This is completely normal, but it is a sign that you are ready for a vacation.

Feeling Negative

If you are constantly feeling bored, or if you just can’t seem to muster up the motivation to get your work done then this is a clear sign that a holiday is most certainly needed. At times, you may feel as though everything about your job annoys you, and that you don’t feel satisfied or even fulfilled when you finally get through your daily grind. As if that wasn’t enough, you may even find that this seeps into your personal life as well, causing you real problems along the way. A vacation can put an end to all of this, by giving you the break you need from reality while also helping you to refocus your priorities along the way.

Camera, Hat, Sunglasses & Drink

Physical Pain

Believe it or not, when you are stressed, anxious or even depressed, your brain releases stress hormones. This is known as being a fight or flight response, and if you have this constantly then this can really run you into the ground. You may even go on to experience physical symptoms as well. This can include a high blood pressure, an increased pulse rate, gastrointestinal problems, headaches and more. When you are constantly overworked or stressed, you may even find that you are way more susceptible to things like the cold virus, the flu and other related infections. If you want to combat all of this then the only way to get this done would be for you to try and stop the source of the stress. It’s important to know that it's not always work that causes this amount of stress, sometimes it can be your home life as well. Things like having a newborn baby, a child who is going through their big exams or anything else of the sort can put an enormous amount of stress and pressure on you, and by understanding these sources of stress, you can then start to deal with them more efficiently.

Lack of Sleep

Lack of sleep is another sign that you are seriously ready for a vacation. If you find it hard to get to sleep at night then this is due to the notorious stress hormone. Stress hormones make it incredibly difficult for you to unwind right before bedtime and this can lead you to feel wide awake even though you really should be tired. Studies show that a third of people do not get the recommended hours of sleep that they need every single night and that another third cannot actually fall asleep because they have far too much to think about. A vacation can give you that much-needed break and it can also help you to really take the time to catch up on those ZZZs.


As mentioned above, stress can cause you to have a fight or flight response. This can really affect your health and it can also give you tunnel vision. When you feel chronic stress, you may find it difficult to focus on other things. Your performance at work may start to suffer and you may even find It hard to focus on things like problem-solving as well. At the end of the day, people make mistakes and this is completely normal, but if you find that your mistakes are seriously interfering with your job then you may want to think about having a break before it starts to have a bigger impact on your performance.

Unhealthy Coping Mechanisms

If you are struggling with your stress levels then you may find that you reach for a glass of wine to try and relax, or even that you try and have a ton of junk food as soon as you get home from work. This shows that you are suffering from burnout and a lot of people go through this every single year. If you are suffering from burnout then this can lead you to make poor decisions and you may even find it hard to relax if you don’t succumb to your bad habits as well.

Feeling Constantly Emotional

Feeling constantly emotional is another sign that you seriously need to take a break. You may find that things affect you more than they usually would and you may even find that when something happens, you react in a way that just isn’t you. This is normal when you have been at the daily grind for far too long, and of course, taking a break is the best solution. A lot of people worry because they think that when they go on vacation, that they will be using up their holidays at work. They also feel that when they get back, that everything will go back to normal and they won’t feel any better at all. This really is not the case, and a vacation can work wonders for your mental health. Even a few days away can reverse all of the above signs and symptoms, not to mention that it can also help you to take the time you need to focus on yourself. If you do want to book a vacation so you can get away from the stress of your daily life then one thing that you can do is go on a river cruise. This will give you the time you need to unwind and it is about as stress-free as you can get. The main thing that you need to do here is to avoid booking a vacation like a sightseeing tour or a city break because all the rushing around to see the sights and even the city atmosphere won’t give you the time you need to unwind. The idea is that you need to get away from the chaos and the busy aspects of your life, so look for beach holidays, summer breaks and cruises.
