lucky strike.

After 2 weeks away and 2 shopping jaunts into Palma I am still craving a few winter 'essentials'. Usually if I search for something... I never find it. After completing a million mundane errands... and compulsary costa visit, I popped into Topshop just incase, and struck lucky. Also pleased to be invited to the student shop in... even though my student days are long gone... 20% discount- how could I refuse? I'm thinking of wearing the contents of this bag! Also have my eye on a few other basics... let's hope they are in stock! 

I also confess to excess red jean wearing- they are my new favourite. Katie.xx

City exploring- Palma.

Needs no introduction.
 Up close with Mary Katrantzou- bejewelled.
 Raf Simons Aviators, awesome.
 Bimba Y Lola- loved the segmented pouch bag!
 Picture perfect 'Bomboneria'
 Kind of wishing I hadn't resisted.....
Incredible interiors shop- every home needs a wall mounted unicorn head.

Alongside Barcelona, London, Stockholm and of course Paris... Palma is one of my favourite cities to visit. After many years of visiting I feel confident and comfortable when exploring it's streets, and forever discovering the little gems this place has to offer. It was sad to see one of my 'must- visit' interior stores clearly struggling with the impact of the recession, but I was over the moon to visit the treasure of a store 'Rialto Living', that possessed as much charm as ever. ( a post dedicated to that place coming right up!)



Take me back.

Keeping my holiday alive through ample holiday posts......
The yacht photographed belonged to the King of Spain, which was accompanied by about 8 other smaller boats!
As for the red sunnies- suprisingly almost identical to a pair by Ray-ban... 8 euros in the local supermercado... bonus.

I am planning a giveaway soon to thank everyone... and for reaching 400 followers... any ideas welcome? Katie.xx

Bikini + Tie-dye = my favourite poolside combination. I loved spending day after day with sea hair, free from make-up!


Return from Paradise.

I am home from a 2 week break in paradise. The hotel was incredible providing the perfect haven for pure relaxation. 
Days began with a delicious breakfast everything you could have wished for and more besides... even smoked salmon & champagne for the most indulgent! I opted for mint tea, freshly squeezed orange, piel de sapo melon, watermelon, figs, natural yogurt & a drizzle of honey, at a table overlooking the sea on an outdoor terrace.

Sloping away from breakfast to the comfort of a four poster day bed, enjoying lengthly swims in the sea, and pool ( I am a complete water baby ) reading the most easy going books, gazing at the sea, frequent naps, watching the boats & cruise ships in the distance, sipping ice tea or diet coke ( tastes so much better out of a glass bottle?) and enjoying the most mouth- wateringly delicious peaches

Many hours were lost while dreaming of autumn winter creations with the help of the local paper shop- which provided me with Hola couture collections, Hola a/w collections, Telva, Moda, Vogue Espana, Elle Espana and all the collections magazines on top!I am very much excited for future outfit posts!

I wish so many of you could have shared the experience with me- thankyou for continuing to support my blog! ( I will be recapping on everything missed!)
kisses. Katie.xxxx
