The Future Of My Blog

As you may or may not have noticed I recently took a month's break from blogging. It wasn't intentional but I simply didn't have much to blog about, plus June was a really busy month for me. It got me thinking about how I'm going to be posting on my blog in the future. I've been doing this for a little while now as a hobby and have been putting pressure on myself to try and post weekly. Whenever I do this I find it hard to think of content and to match up to what other people are posting, there's so much amazing content out there. So I've decided that I'm just going to post what I want, when I want and that's ok. The blogosphere seems like it's in a funny place right now so I want to make sure my content is fun, positive and true to me! Blogging is never going to be a full time job but I do love that it keeps me taking photos and creative outside of work. Plus I simply don't have the patience to be a full time blogger, I don't have the commitment that all of these wonderful bloggers have! I'm too lazy to wake up at 5am to get the perfect Instagram, I'd much rather be sleeping but I' do admire them for it. I recently tried to get a nice pool shot on my holiday but gave up after 5 minutes after worrying I was going to drop my phone in the pool and I just wanted to relax with a cocktail. So if you see someone's photo by the sea or a pool, leave a comment and let them know you appreciate the effort because I sure do! 

Anyway, see you soon. Maybe tomorrow, next week or even in two weeks! Who knows? I'm posting regularly on my Instagram so if you want to see what I'm up to you can follow me there.

My Crete Photo Diary

Kalimera! Last week my boyfriend travelled to Crete for our summer holiday and we had the most amazing time. I'm not totally sure what I was expecting from the island but every day I was more and more surprised by how amazing it was! We wanted to have a really relaxing holiday away from work, London and just escape for a little while as the weeks leading up to it had been pretty hectic for us both. We stayed in the area of Analipsi but we also visited Heraklion, Chania and Rethymon which were also lovely. My favourite out of them all was probably Chania as it was on the sea front and had a good vibe from the old and new towns. Plus there were loads of places to pick up typical tourist goodies, and visit the local shops too. However, Heraklion did have a Sephora, which was VERY exciting! 

We stayed at Insula Alba Resort, which we loved and would happily stay there again. It had a really yummy breakfast buffet, great service from the hotel staff plus and a beautiful pool area (see in the photos below). On the first night we were welcomed with shots of the traditional Cretan spirit of Raki, which was pretty lethal as well as some sweet sesame and peanut treats. Plus the hotel was right on the beachfront so we were treated to a stunning sunset each night. The hotel is only 25 minutes away from Heraklion by cab, so if you fancy a day out to the capital, it's easily accessible!

Here Comes The Sun

I hope you’re all enjoying the sunny weather (or rain, you never know with English weather)! I’m still in that winter/spring phase where I’m not quite sure what wear as the weather changes so much, but thought I’d share these snaps that I shot at the weekend. I don't love getting my legs out that much and would rather wear a pair of tights but sometimes you've just got to go bare legged. There's so many amazing dresses and  playsuits online at the moment that I couldn't resist buying this one from ASOS. I have a holiday to Crete at the end of the month and I think it'll be so perfect for that, plus it's my birthday in June too, so this might be my birthday dress! I just love all of the beautiful bright colours, I've not seen anything else like this online - such a unique piece. 

Right, I'm now off to have another browse on ASOS (of course), online shopping never ends! Have a lovely week!
