Black and White

Hey! So I've been in love with the Asos duster coats for a while now but just couldn't bring myself to spend £90 on one knowing that other brands will probably soon be making their own version too for less. Surely enough I started to see them more and more. I got mine from Primark this week and I was so happy when my sister told me that our local store were finally stocking them! It is defiantly a must have and is just such a good simple piece to have in your wardrobe. I wore my white duster coat with all black today.

Top- Asos
Jeans- Primark

Lisbon, Portugal 2014

So this is the second blog post on my trip to Portugal this summer. Lisbon is the capital city of Portugal so although we still had the car, we decided to buy tickets for the 'yellow bus' which was one of the tour bus companies that were available. It was really good to be able to see lot's of different places and monuments and just be able to hop on and off. (My inner tourist was at it's peak during our time in Lisbon.) We still did explore on our own, for example one day we visited Cascais and we had a lovely time. Overall my family and I had a wonderful holiday and are now eating nothing but salad to get rid of all of the delicious meals that have stayed with us (she say's eating a chocolate bar)! I hope you enjoy this post and have a lovely day!

Algarve, Portugal 2014

Hey! I haven't blogged for a very long time because I went on holiday to Portugal for three weeks this summer. If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram then you probably know this and have seen some pictures of what I’ve been up to already. I’m really going to try to not say too much because this post is already going to be very long! (Sorry not sorry.) I’ve basically decided to split my holiday into two posts. Both of them are photo diaries but one is for the two weeks my family and I spent in Algarve (this post) and the other is for the week we spent in Lisbon.
I had an amazing holiday and would strongly recommend that you visit Portugal if you haven’t already! When we were in Algarve, we stayed in a villa on a beautiful resort in Quinta do Lago. It was such a lovely area and I wouldn’t mind living there at all! People were always cycling, running, walking to the beach or just driving around in golf carts. It was such a lovely atmosphere. One of my favourite things about the area was that they did an outdoor film screening where everyone sat in golf carts whilst munching on some popcorn. We rented a car so we did a lot of exploring and went to other places in Algarve such as Faro, Albufeira, Lagos, Sagres, Vilamoura, Portimão and Vale do Lobo. Anyway I hope you enjoy this post and I apologise for how long this post is.
