Little Black Fringed Dress

1 comment

The last two days of our holiday in Ibiza were spent lounging around the pool, recovering from the  previous night before doing it all over again in the evening.

When packing my Ibiza wardrobe, I knew I needed something light and easy to throw over my swimwear for these particular days. 

Something that would go with all of my bikinis and swimsuits, and chic enough to wear out to lunch or to a pool party. 

It was though my mind was read and the day before we left, a parcel was delivered from Little Mistress. The parcel contained the perfect Little Black Dress and I instantly knew it had to come with me to Ibiza.  

The fringe detail gives a nod to the 70's trend that's dominated Summer this year, and has big side pockets. I have a thing about dresses with pockets! It just makes a dress look so chic. 

I styled it with silver mid heel sandals and a subtle body chain

If your wardrobe isn't dominated by little black dresses like mine (it's getting beyond an obsession now) and you prefer a lighter colour, this dress also comes in white which you can shop by clicking here.

Little Mistress have some gorgeous pieces in their 'new in' collection, and I've picked my favourite below that will see you into Autumn in style!

Pool Day & Hed Kandi

1 comment

Ouch. My head. Why do tequila rose shots seem so appealing at the time? After our incredible day at the Ocean Beach pool party, we were all feeling pretty delicate the following morning.

Thankfully, hotel Es Vive serve the best breakfast and I made sure I took advantage of this every morning, despite the hangovers.

We made our way down to the restaurant and I had a full English, followed by toast and a big bowl of fresh fruit. This helped hugely and instantly made me feel better.

The weather wasn’t looking too good on the Saturday, so we decided to have a lazy day around the pool trying to catch some rays as the sun tried it’s best to fight its way through the cloud. 

(Incase you're wondering, my swimsuit is from here)

In between napping on the sun loungers we frequently visited the restaurant to order lots and lots of food. I had spaghetti bolognaise for lunch which got rid of my hangover completely. There is nothing like a good stodgy meal to make you feel better!

I also had a bloody mary, a cocktail which I don’t particularly enjoy when drinking but I can’t stop drinking it. Does that make sense? I feel like I should hate it, but I don’t!

Es Vive also have a selection of fresh fruit and detox juices on the menu, and after my spaghetti bolognaise I felt I should get a few nutrients inside me so ordered a fruit smoothie which was delicious.

The day flew by and finally at around 5pm, the clouds finally drifted away revealing the hot sun that beamed down on us. So much so, that I found myself staring at the pool and wanting to jump in it to cool down. I grabbed my friend Stacie and after three we bombed into the pool! It took about 5 bombs in the pool to get the perfect “in the air” shot, but we got there in the end!

On the rooftop of the hotel lies a secret sun worshipping area with a private bar. It opens every day from 4pm, so after our dip in the pool we decided to take a wander upstairs to check it out. 

The view from the rooftop was incredible, with views over the ocean. It boasts a relaxed vibe with chilled music playing and huge beds to lie on. 

We eventually ventured up to our room to get ready for the evening. 

Originally, we had booked a table at a restaurant but as we had all eaten so much during the day none of us fancied dining out, so we decided to go to Hed Kandi at Es Paradis instead. 

I went to the same night last year in Ibiza during the closing parties and absolutely loved it (you can read my blog post here), so I couldn’t wait!

Before heading to Es Paradis, we took a cab to Bora Bora beach bar, but left pretty soon after! If you want to be surrounded by unwashed, sweaty, smelly people who probably don't even know where they are anymore, then go here! We moved onto a couple of other bars then eventually got a cab to the club. 

Wearing: tiger mist playsuit and new look earrings

When we arrived it wasn't that busy, but by 3am the dance floor was packed. I like this club because you can actually move around in there and get a drink quickly at the bar. The music on Hed Kandi nights is my favourite too, and they have a sax and bongo player. 

It was such a good night. I know I've said it before but I genuinely don't think I've ever danced so much in my life! 

We left around 4am and jumped into a cab back to the hotel to get a few hours sleep before our last day in Ibiza. 

The weekend had gone so quick, but I was excited about what we had planned for our last night. I'd heard incredible things about it, and I can honestly say it was one of the best nights of my life. 

I'll tell you all about it in the next post, so see you then!

Ocean Beach Ibiza

Leave a Comment
After my embarrassingly early night (read about it here), I awoke the following day with a slight headache but excited for a day at Ocean Beach. The girls who went onto Amnesia the night before hadn't slept yet, but being the troopers we are, we all pulled ourselves together,  got dressed, put a bit of lipstick on and was ready to go by midday.

We were told to wear all-black, something I had absolutely no problem with seeing as the majority of my wardrobe is black! All the hens wore black with the beautiful bride in white. 

I wore:

We were so lucky with the weather as this was the only day where we experienced full sun and blazing heat from the moment we woke up, right through until the end of the day. The perfect day for a pool party!

We arrived and were shown to our beds that were situated next to each other in the pool. 

As soon as we arrived we saw girls strutting around covered in glitter, so we dumped our bags onto the bed and immediately went off in the search of the glitter station!

The company is called Kiss my Fairy and they provide body painting services at events throughout Ibiza! 

They have lots of different colours to choose from, and I went for gold to match my body chain.

Fully glittered, it was time for much needed hangover food! 

We ordered mini burgers, duck wraps and a sushi platter to share. Delish!

Megan looked beautiful in her bride to be sash! 

We started with jugs of strawberry daiquiri's (naturally), then moved onto LPR.

Followed by shots of I have absolutely no idea what...

Finished with the largest bottle of vodka to see us through the afternoon and evening. 

By late afternoon the beds were full and the pool was packed with people dancing to the music. 

There was a loud bang and gold streamers were released into the sky and floated down onto us all. I looked up and saw a giant swan in the sky with acrobats performing stunts! 

Inflatable swans were then drifted into the pool with beautiful dancers on them floating around the pool.

As a nice surprise for Megan, we ordered her a cheesecake with a message to be brought to her at the bed. 

She was so surprised!

That was the last photo taken before sensible Dorothy decided to put away the Camera before it dropped into the pool!! (something that almost happened a million times...I'm so lucky!)

Although the evening became a bit of a blur to me as the drinks flowed, what I do remember is laughing....a lot

We danced in the pool until it was time to go home. Back at the hotel, the girls got ready to go to Space (as planned), and I'm sure you can guess what's coming. Yep, I went to bed with a fuzzy head. Too many tequilas for me! 

Drop by the blog tomorrow to see what we got up to the following day, which includes something shocking. I finally made it to a club! I know, shock horror! See you tomorrow!

Ibiza Day One

Leave a Comment

It was at the beginning of the year that my lovely friend Megan had the absolutely fabulous idea of hosting her hen do in Ibiza! We booked our flights, hotel and began planning the itinerary but it felt like such a long time to wait. This year has zoomed by and before I knew it the week before countdown had begun! 

We were picked up at 2am (the struggle was real), and arrived in Ibiza nice and early at 9am and taken straight to Es Vive hotel. 

Es Vive is a beautiful boutique hotel located 5 minutes from Bora Bora. I've been to their hotel bar after a night out in Ibiza last year, but never stayed at the hotel before and after hearing of it's huge renovation this year I couldn't wait to check it out. 

Everything is white, clean and chic. Instagram perfect! 

My friend Laura and I checked into our room and after a quick tour of the room we lounged on our balcony as we opened our goodie bags that were waiting for us on the bed. 

Megan's sister and her best friend had thoughtfully put together a little goodie bag for each of the girls. The contents inside included a survival kit, sweeties, flash tats, a crown, a shot and most importantly, a willie straw. No hen do is complete without a willie straw!

After rummaging through our goodie bag we threw our bikinis on and joined the rest of the girls downstairs around the pool. 

The pool is conveniently located right next to the restaurant and bar, so as we laid in the sun around the pool we ordered multiple refreshments throughout the day in the form of cocktails, including my favourite, Strawberry Daiquiri. Yum!

After a few hours of sun worshipping and countless daiquiris later it was time to start getting ready for our first evening out. We had a table booked at Ushuaia so we planned to get down there for around 6pm. 

We arrived at our table and ordered some alcohol to see us through the evening. If anyone's planning to go to Ushuaia I highly recommend reserving a table as the queue's at the bar get ridiculous as the evening goes on. You also get access to the VIP toilets, something that is heaven for us girls. Only a few steps from the table and no queue's! There's nothing worse than spending your evening in the queue for the loo. 

I made sure I got some photos in before the sun set and before things got a little messy. 


The headline DJ for the night was Armin van Buuren, but before he made his appearance there were other DJ's playing. 

I don't think I have ever danced so much in my life! 

As the sun went down the VIP area suddenly filled up and the place was packed with people jumping up and down to the music.

As Armin van Buuren took to the centre of the pool on the main DJ stage, the entire crowd went crazy. I've found a clip on YouTube here from the same night, if you fancy having a look!

It was honestly one of the best nights of my life and could not have been a better start to Megan's hen and our weekend in Ibiza!

We left just after midnight and a couple of girls went onto Amnesia but my bed was calling after a few too many vodkas and sleep deprevation kicking in (I'm so not hardcore!). 

Day one complete! Join me tomorrow for a pool party at Ocean Beach, I have lots of photos to share!
