One Shoulder Stripe Ruffle Dress


I have a thing about blue and white dresses in summer and this one from SheIn is definitely a show stopper. I love everything about it from the one shoulder ruffle detail to its perfect length. If I was going on holiday this year this dress would undoubtedly be the first thing I packed in my suitcase. Just a note on the sizing, this dress runs true to size unless you have a larger chest and then you will probably be best to size up one as it runs small in the waist!

Summer Cold Shoulder




T.K Maxx Top // H&M Shorts // Tory Burch Sandals //
Michael Kors Watch // Bag from Sorrento (similar)

I've not had the chance to share many summer outfit posts on the blog this year but I finally got round to shooting a few looks with my sister the other weekend. 
This is the first look we shot and an outfit I have worn a good few times this year. I found this cute top in T.K Maxx for just £9.99 and it's one of my favourite pieces from this summer. I love the off the shoulder trend but I love that this top has some added straps to help keep the sleeves from riding up like they do on some of the off the shoulder pieces I have tried on! 
Later this week I'll be sharing this cute ruffle one shoulder dress.

Stacey's Smiles

My welcome mat for the new house. 

A little peek at my closet which I can''t wait to share with you all!

First blooms in my new home.

A special scent to me.

My little fur baby Bella


It's been a strange couple of weeks since I moved in to my new house and have been trying to settle into a new routine, one major change was the arrival of little Bella.
She is 12 weeks old and just the sweetest, cheekiest little ball of fluff and I spend all my free time (when I should be doing things like cleaning) playing with her and watching her sleep. 
She has completed our home and I'm sure you'll be seeing her around the blog quite often soon!

Travel Diaries: Positano, Amalfi Coast, Italy


During our stay in Sorrento (read more about that here) we decided to take a morning trip to the picturesque Positano, we were in love the moment we arrived.

We decided to take a semi-private transfer (a mini bus that collects you from your hotel), this was cheaper than getting a private taxi but a lot quicker than the bus which can often be super packed! The drive along the coast is full of stunning views just like the drive to Sorrento from the airport was.

We only had a few hours in Positano but managed to wander around a lot of the town taking in all of the views and had a bite to eat in La Tagliata where we had a beautiful view from our table. 
We also strolled along the beach which wasn't busy at all when we went in early May. 

From the blue waters, to the pink house in the cliff and the lemon filled shops, I adored everything about Positano and would definitely love to go back there and stay again in the future! We walked past so many delicious looking restaurants I would need to go back for a couple of weeks to eat at them all!

Insta Outfits


TK Maxx Top // H&M Shorts





Another little round up of some outfits I shared on Instagram (@spark1988) during July. You can probably see a little lemon print and blue theme happening. I've been obsessed with anything with lemons on since we went to Sorrento last summer. This lemon print dress just went on sale to 50% off yesterday (there's a super cute romper in the same print on sale too).
