    So as most of you may know, I’ve been on my holidays! If you follow me on Instagram I apologise sincerely for all the obnoxious beach snaps… I know how it feels viewing other peoples vacay photos whilst sitting in wet and miserable London! 

    Before I set off, I was on a mission to find the perfect bikinis. I love a one piece but when I’m in the sun, it’s important for me to make the most of it and tan my whole body. I teamed up with www.southbeachofficial.com and picked out these little beauties! IMG_4540-1IMG_4541Khaki is one of my FAVE colours – looks great with blonde hair and even better once you’ve got a tan!

    So this little crochet number is perfectttto for a tropical holiday. All the right vibes and defies the generic white/black crochet kini!

    IMG_3420IMG_3503I just LOVE this shape bikini top. The triangle cut is super flattering no matter what breast size you are and of course this wine colour is 2 die 4. SHOP

    So here is part 2 of my Summer Dreams segment – with clothes from We Koko & jewels from Wild Hearts.

    This fur jacket just ‘SCREAMS’ Chanel no.1 (pardon the pun) from Scream Queens. I’ve actually been stopped a few times in the street by people asking to touch it NO JOKE. IMG_3684IMG_3710IMG_3694IMG_3706IMG_3690IMG_3699IMG_3677IMG_3688IMG_3685IMG_3682Jacket – We Koko (Karizma), one piece – We Koko (Marian Eespaev), all jewellery – Wild Hearts

    It’s that time of year when we’re all shopping around trying to get the fleekiest outfits for summer. So here I am gracing you with the ideas and websites to make you look the best dressed TAN babe. And lucky for you everything I’m wearing from these ‘Summer Dreams’ segment is only from two websites – two websites that I’m obsessed with! We KOKO & Wild Hearts  Jewellery. We KOKO is FULL of diversity and has so many different designers so they’re literally your best bet if you cant be bothered to shop about and just wanna get ya whole wardrobe in one place! And Wild Hearts is the most perfect place to purchase that dinky, effortless summer jewellery. The pieces are so define and well cut and pop with any outfit.  PART 2 COMING MONDAY <3

    Happy BLOG day! AND a Happy Birthday to my boyfriend who turned 21 on Sunday. To celebrate, we checked into the immaculate Park Plaza Hotel in Westminster followed by a truck load’a food and a suave dinner overlooking the thames. The best part about checking into a hotel room is that nerve wracking/exciting moment when you slot your keycard in and open the door to the COMPLETE unknown. The excitement for what your room is going to look like is overwhelming. Having checked into about 300 hotels in the past couple of years together – the novelty never seems to ware off! Luckily we opened our room door to the chicest room with the most spectacular view of THE Big Ben himself and was only a matter of minute before there was a knock at the door with a big chocolate (Matilda style) cake, macaroons and a plateful of goodies. Hospitality at it’s finest. Here is my little photo journal of our stay. No comments necessary – just simplicity and chicness.

    On Friday evening Casey and I ventured to the coast for our one night holiday at No.5 The Lawn! Being so busy these days – we don’t actually have time to hop on a plane and jet off but this was just as good. If you want to book this yourself, the details are at the bottom of the post. lawn7We were pleasantly greeted by the lovely owners Jude and Mark who showed us to the incredible hideaway. I knew it would be nice but I had no idea it would be as cool as it was. There was an immediate feeling of zen and relaxation with the airy colours and bright open space. If you have me on snapchat (add me by the way! betsyblue) I was definitely showing off as I posted videos popping champagne (kindly given to us by the owners) in my robe in the incredible surroundings. Jude had even put out snacks ready for us too. Everything you need to relax and have a good time is there waiting for you!lawn1lawn2lawn3No.5 The Lawn is actually in Hastings but you could be anywhere in the world as it’s so tucked away and private.lawn17

    My favourite feature was actually the pool. It was more like a giant bath as it was hot and had insane waterfall/jacuzzi features. I’m still wrinkly as I spent so much time in there. My other favourite feature was the cinema screen that magically comes out of the ceiling! The entertainment system includes thousands of movies as well and of course there’s an audio system which plays your music all through the house. Frank Ocean seemed to fit the scene for our stay as we played it through the pool.lawn15

    The kitchen was cute as ever – not that we cooked in it of course. Pizza was indeed ordered! haha.lawn4lawn5You can slightly see the other hot tub on the patio outside the window!lawn10lawn9The bathroom featured a steamer in the shower!lawn12lawn11The artwork was on point…lawn13

    Obviously I enjoyed my evening at No.5 The Lawn but my morning was just as good. We had the most amazing full english breakfast with fresh bread and iced coffee delivered to us at 10:30am on the dot. The night before, you choose from the extensive breakfast menu and write down the time you would like your breakfast. It was DELICIOUS.lawn16  If you want to book – contact Jude directly: 07982845407 but DON’T forget to say that Betsy-Blue recommended you!

    Still in sunny LA. I’m staying at friends but I spent past couple of nights in a cool art deco hotel and interestingly enough – it turns out Marilyn Monroe used to live at this exact hotel! She lived here for 3 years and there’s many iconic glamour shoots of hers that were shot here also. Thought that was pretty cool seeing as it’s such an unknown hotel.marilyn-monroe-beverly-carlton-hotel

    BACK TO THE CLOTHES. Wearing my new favourite roll neck from Nobody’s Child who i’m loving right now.. I blogged about them last week too. BUT I’m pairing this roll neck with my epiiiiiic new leather piece. You all know how much I love a leather jacket… this is what dream are seriously made of. IMG_7663IMG_7667IMG_7661

    Hey guys, so as most of you know – i’m currently in Los Angeles soaking up the sun, seeing friends and attending some very exciting meetings etc. And of COURSE blogging for you gorgeous followers. This blog post particularly excites me as i’m wearing my new favourite jacket from one of my fave designers Alice McCall. I’m completely obsessed with it. I’m ALSO wearing a shirt from one of my best pal’s upcoming t-shirt brand AndieXJane. The brand hasn’t been released yet but i’m sure people are going to love it – it has a James Perse vibe, chic and comfy basics. You can’t go wrong with a plain tee that fits like you came outta the womb wearing it.

    My friend Cameron Palatas shot these images, we went for the paparazzi vibe outside some random persons home (sadly not ours).

    Last week I had a pretty deserved week off in Amsterdam. As I missed a couple blog posts – I thought I’d let you guys see some pics I took!

    Finally wore my boop jacket! And obviously had to get a vespa to match! Also had a good window shop splurge on Pieter Cornelisz Hooftstraat (A street full of designer stores!)

    OH MY GOD… I FELL IN LOVE WITH THESE CHANEL PRINTED DOGS!! These were in an art gallery in the city centre – definitely going to recreate these ornaments.

    Me and my boyfriend were also really cute and put a lock on this bridge… I am not a PARIS cliché!! Think it’s way cuter that Amsterdam has started their own lock bridge and we are probably around the 50th lock!

    One of my fave oufits of the trip – This is a Love Song – Drake leggings with my JO JO boutique Valentino tee and colour poppin’ timberlands.
