A Vision in Red

If you've been following me for a while, you know how much I shop at Missguided and how much I love their variety of clothing. I've actually been chasing this dress, first I wasn't sure of the lengths, then it was sold out, then it was back in stock but I was waiting for pay day (let's be honest, who else is waiting for pay day refreshing the page 24\7 馃檮), then it was sold out in my size again and then found it on Missguided Germany finally - What a procedure but every second of it was worth it!馃槄 When I saw it on the website I just thought it's the perfect summer dress and since I'm obsessed with maxi dresses, it was just a MUST! Also, I saw myself walking along the beach with his gorgeous dress blowing in the wind on my next holiday, haha. Stay tuned where I'm traveling to! 
Now guys, you can call me crazy but you might have noticed that I got the exact same dress in nude and blue as well馃檲 Don't judge me! Lol! I just think you can't go wrong with this type of dress as it is suitable for every type of occasion and you can dress it down with sandals for a casual chic day look and you can wear it with heels for dinner or drinks. Also, I think it is quite reasonable for a dress like this, the quality is good and it's not a dress you only wear once even though it is quite a statement piece. 
I hope you liked this post and I've a got the link to the dress and 
a few more pictures down below for you.

Yellow Lace Dress || Marbella


I've been wanting to share this dress with you guys for a while now but there just wasn't the right occasion until my spontaneous trip to Marbella last month. The dress came out last year actually and I've been wanting it ever since I saw it but sometimes I just feel like River Island are going a little overboard with their prices, that's why I left it until I saw it on Asos sale some months ago. Yay! I usually buy when I see something as I'm always scared it's gonna be sold out, but I guess patience paid off this time. I can't really remember how much the original price was for this dress but I believe it was around £70 and I bought it for £36 on Asos. Unfortunately, it's sold out now but I linked a similar one below for you guys.

FLOWER POWER


How can one not love this dress? It ticks all the boxes for me: Flower print, off shoulder, ruffled sleeves & midi lengths! What more can I wish for really?! I bought this dress from SHEIN after watching Patricia Bright's youtube review about them. There were some good and some bad items she bought but I just wanted to see for myself and bought a few items, including this dress. It rather looks like a Zara dress and that's what I liked about the look. I'm absolutely loving the dress, it fits perfectly and it's not see-through, which happens a lot with white/nude coloured clothing. I have to admit, the quality is not the very best but I don't feel uncomfortable wearing it either, so I guess it's fine, especially when it only costs £22. It is well worth the money, believe me.   
You can find the dress HERE

3 Things to do in C贸rdoba



I know it's been a while but I've just not been feeling like writing blog posts to be honest. Life gets busy and I just couldn't get my head around it. I took a weekend off to get back on track and I feel like it was much needed. I'm back with a travel blog post for you guys though! YAY! I took a trip down to Spain to visit my friend in Marbella and we took a day trip to C贸rdoba, which is located in the southern Spanish region of Andalusia. It's amazing how one single building makes the whole world want to visit this city! Speaking of, let me get started on the 3 things to do in C贸rdoba:

1. Mezquita in C贸rdoba 

Visit the mesmerising multiarched Mezquita, which is one of the world's greatest islamic buildings. I wasn't that impressed with the outside of the mosque but as soon as I stepped in, I was impressed with the archtiecture and beautiful detailing all around the walls. It's defnitely worth a trip for every traveler! C贸rdoba is about 2 1/2 hrs drive from Marbella and quite easy to reach. 


2. El Rinc贸n de Carmen

While walking through the streets of Cord贸ba, the narrow streets of the Juder铆a (Jewish quater) and Muslim quater, we found this beautifully decorated open space restaurant which serves typical local dishes such as the famous Salmorejo de Cord贸ba, a creamy cold tomato soup topped with boiled eggs and iberian ham or salty prosciutto (picture below), Rabo de toro and Flamenqu铆n. The food and service was amazing and let me not start on the super cute decoration. I would recommend to anyone to check this little gem out when you visit the city for a typical andalusian experience. 


3. Puente Romano de Cord贸ba

One of the landmarks in Cord贸ba is the long bridge right in front of the Mezquita located in the histroric centre. You have a stunning view on the city from the bridge and for all the game of thrones fans, yes, this is the bridge where they filmed part of it. I'm not a fan but everyone seems to be besides me, so I might as well mention it. 


I hope you enjoyed my little tour guide!

Flower Show London || Covent Garden


Everyone who know me, knows that I have a thing for flowers. I have fresh flowers in my home every week and my £3-5 flower bundles from Tesco make me very happy. It just has become a routine as my nan has always been obsessed with flowers and we always went flower shopping together. 

The RHS Flower Show Chelsea has been on in London, which is the world's most prestigious flower show that inspires millions through showcasing the best in garden design. Covent Garden is one of the parts that benefits from this event and it is beautifully decorated with a lot of flower deco everywhere. Obviously coming across this flower swing, I had to take some pics as it's just the prefect photo opportunity. People literally queued to take a pic on there, lol. With just a simple flower swing you can make someones day and mine was definitely complete. 

I love how ever since I moved to London there's something new to discover every day. It's been a little over two years now and there's still sooo much left to do. My next stop will be the Columbia road flower market, which is a must and dream for every flower-lover.

Love, Drea

The floral Blazer I've been dreaming of...


Do you know the feeling when you go into the shop and you know you can't live without this piece of clothing? That's how I felt about this floral blazer... Not that life wouldn't go on, lol, but I've been wanting a jacket like that for a good while and I actually wanted it in combination with the matching trousers but in this case I just didn't like the trousers so I just went for the blazer. Question number one was: What do I wear it with? It couldn't have been easier in this case to be honest. All the black clothing I wear on a daily basis which make probably 70% of my wardrobe go perfectly with a colourful blazer. Black dresses, black skirts, black trousers, black shorts, anything you can think of really... I feel like I'm going to wear this blazer as much as I can and y'all are going to hate seeing it on my IG over and over again just like my ripped denim jacket馃檲馃槀 Sorry not sorry! 

I wore this blazer to the We Love Brunch event at the Mondrian Hotel - Rumpus room, which is an amazing hotel and their interior design is on point! It was a day party so it was a bit difficult to decide between that typical dress or mix things up a little. On my way there I felt a little overdressed but as soon as I got there I fit in perfectly. I was actually going to wear the blazer buttoned up without anything underneath but I felt a little naked so I chose a lace Bralet I hadn't worn in years and it just completed the whole look. As I said, you can dress it up or down, there are not limits as the blazer is quite a flexible piece considering that it's very colourful. I'm obsessed with it and you'll see me wearing it loads more.

I hope everyone had a lovely bank holiday weekend!馃拫

Love, Drea

Social Detox || Weekend Getaway Eastbourne


I've had the most relaxing weekend in Eastbourne and I really enjoyed having a little bit of a social detox not going on Instagram all the time. I visited my friend and the weekend was all about relaxing, social detox, exercise and healthy eating. Luckily the weather was good, too! As Social Media Manager and Blogger I'm always on social platforms and there are days where I just feel drained and have enough of it. I left my phone either at home or in the bedroom as it's usable glued to my hand, which first gave a feeling that I forgot something but then it was good not to feel the pressure of having to look what's going on. A social detox will refresh your mind, give you new inspiration from outside the internet. Try it! 

Eastbourne is a beautiful city & seaside resort in East Sussex on the coast of South England. It was really good to get out of London away from a busy lifestyle and the noise. Big city life is amazing and I wouldn't trade it for anything but sometimes it's just good to get out. 

We spent the weekend drinking loads of healthy juices, my friend introduced me to juicing and I was quite surprised how good some of the combinations of vegetables taste. Who would've thought that Beetroot, Carrot, Spinach, Celery, Ginger, Kale, Lemon and a couple other veggies taste good together?! I might have to get myself a juicer!  


When going to the beach, it always gives me a feeling of freedom and makes me think about life, I don't know if that's just me but yeah... I was fortunate to have my friend play on her ukulele for me and sing along. I hope you all watched my insta story, her voice is amazing! 
Eastbourne Pier is a must visit when you're there! You can have endless walks along the beach und enjoy the sea breeze. 

I think this was the first time I packed my gym clothes for a weekend getaway unless I go to a spa. We visited David Lloyd Health Club, which is an amazing gym and has everything you wish and more. I was quite impressed that they have a heated outdoor pool, too. The steam room was probably the best part for me. I just love how you feel in the steam room and it's so good for your muscles. 

This wasn't all of it though, we even went hiking! Yes, I went hiking! Lol. We walked all the way to the popular Beachy Head. People go there from all over the world and if you don't want to walk up, there's a bus, too. The view from there is magnificent and you can overlook the whole of Eastbourne and the sea. Pure nature! Just be careful by the cliffs and it's quite windy, so I advise wearing something warm, at least around this time of the year. 

I'll probably go back soon as it is only 1 1/2 hours by train from London and it's a really worth a trip to just get out of the city. 


Love, Drea
