Last Week In Portugal I...

Wednesday, 23 August 2017

peexo summer wedding guest portugal
I can't believe week 2 in Portugal has been and gone, this summer is going by super quickly and whilst I'm really looking forward to Autumn and being back in London, it doesn't stop me from felling slightly scared about how quickly this summer has flown by - I only have 1 week left! But enough of that, here's a look at what I got up to last week!

Golden Hour At The Beach

Monday, 21 August 2017

peexo fashion blogger summer style
Last week we were by the sea for a couple of days for a wedding and so naturally, we squeezed in a trip to the beach! We spent most of the day at the beach and then went back to our hotel to shower and change for the evening. One thing I love about being by the beach is the incredible sunset which we made sure we didn't miss!

A Country Threatened By Flames

Friday, 18 August 2017

peexo countryside portugal style
It's heartbreaking to hear about all the forest fires that are devastating Portugal at the moment, it's scary to feel the constant threat of fires spreading through the country. Whilst forest fires aren't a new occurrence in Portugal, every year they seem to get worse, affecting so many people and always the most vulnerable in villages like mine, surrounded by greenery.

Last Week In Portugal I...

Wednesday, 16 August 2017

portugal travel blog peexo
 In 2015, I started this mini feature whilst in Portugal and so far, it's been a yearly thing. For that reason, I thought I'd bring it back again! As I spend quite a lot of time in Portugal I thought it would be nice to share some snippets of what I get up to on a weekly basis. I've decided to keep these roundups very casual with some snaps from my iPhone as they're usually the photos I really love and rarely get to share other than on my Instagram story (which disappears after 24hrs anyway). So here goes...

The Portugal I Know

Monday, 14 August 2017

peexo summer in portugal
This year - thanks to Instagram believe it or not - I've fallen for the Portugal I know. I say thanks to Instagram because it's on trend to capture images of vineyards, lemon trees and fresh fruits which is exactly what I am surrounded by here. I used to desperately search for white backgrounds and perfectly painted houses but this year, I couldn't be less interested in finding those and rather sharing snippets of what I've known my whole life.

An Evening In The Desert

Friday, 4 August 2017

peexo travel blogger desert dubai
 Going to the desert was something I desperately wanted to do whilst in Dubai, it's something so surreal yet we missed out on the experience during our first trip to Dubai back in 2014 and I wished we had been. So this time around it simply couldn't go a-miss. And so, one evening we set off from our hotel for a desert adventure.

5 Things To Do In Dubai

things to do in dubai peexo
Dubai is one of those cities that holds so many beautiful things; whether you're stepping foot in the desert or you're visiting The Dubai Mall for the first time, there's so much to see and do which go beyond your wildest dreams. Whilst we spent the majority of our days lounging by the pool, some days we just needed an escape into some air con filled rooms and luckily, there's plenty to see in Dubai!

The Lost City of Atlantis

Friday, 28 July 2017

It's so easy to get lost amidst the colour and wonders of the lost city of Atlantis. This trip was my second visit to Dubai and the second time I stayed at Atlantis The Palm, so the brightly coloured aquarium wasn't new to me but somehow I still managed to get lost inside all over again.

Dubai From My iPhone

Wednesday, 26 July 2017

peexo travel blogger dubai desert
Rewind to Friday 14th July when I made my way to Dubai, a very last minute and impromptu trip. I've been to Dubai once before, which I actually blogged about believe it or not, but it was very early on in my blogging journey so all my content is pretty cringe (I'm not going to link back to old posts but they're all there for your viewing pleasure should you wish to look for them). Here's what I did this year...

A Weekend In Finchley

Friday, 21 July 2017

weekend in finchley peexo london fashion blogger
Being a South West London girl (born and bred), I've never really had the chance to explore some areas of London and I'm making a conscious effort to change that whenever I can. Summer in London is one of the best times to explore the city from the outside, that is, without being cooped up indoors sheltering from the rain. One of the perks of being in London is the sheer amount of greenery there is and the parks nestled within the city.

How To Get Away with a Crop Top at a Wedding

Wednesday, 19 July 2017

Weddings are hard to dress for and can actually end up being quite boring when the search typically defaults to finding a dress. Whilst I'll happily take any excuse to buy a new dress, I wanted to try and branch out a little from the usual (but if dresses are your thing then there's plenty more wedding guest outfit ideas on my blog here). My love for crop tops this summer has become apparent so I went for a bit of mix and match in order to create an outfit that I would happily wear to a wedding myself.

5 Reasons Why It's Important For Bloggers To Know Their Worth

5 reasons why it's important for bloggers to know their worth peexo
The blogosphere is still relatively new and there isn't much for us bloggers to go by when it comes to how to act, communicate and build relationships within the industry. The topic of sponsorships and money is still a bit of a faux-pas with some people being for it and others against the idea. It's hard to know where to stand and whilst I still don't have the answer to this, I do think it's so important for bloggers to know their worth.

A Summer's Evening Wearing All Black

Friday, 7 July 2017

summer all black outfit inspo peexo fashion blogger
I often try to steer clear from all black looks during the summer for two reasons: firstly, I really try to lighten up my wardrobe with the addition of prints and bold colours and secondly, because black usually makes me feel so warm! Which is definitely not what you want on a scorching hot day. But my love for an all black look doesn't end come summer, the evening's is what it's all about!

Why You Should Buy a Red Dress This Summer

Wednesday, 5 July 2017

I'm slowly but surely filling up my wardrobe with a vast array of red dresses. Wrap dresses, midi dresses, a-line dresses, embroidered dresses and so many more! I've definitely noticed - it would be hard not to - that the colour red has been creeping up and taking over my summer wardrobe.

On The Go Beauty

It's not often that I travel with makeup, I very rarely touch up on the go, but more recently I've been spending long days out and by the time I get home I definitely feel and look worse for wear. I've found that when I'm out and about shooting new content for my blog or when I have pesky spots hanging about, it's always good to have some bits on hand to keep me going all day long - especially during the summer.

Writer's Block

Thursday, 29 June 2017

peexo blogger dealing with writer's block
To be completely honest, as I began writing this post (at exactly 23:42 on Wednesday night) I started off with the title going places and a stupid intro about how I was super happy about going on two holidays this summer instead of one - wow, who am I? I read over it and I thought to myself, why do I sound so superficial? Don't I have anything better to write?

Reformation Vibes Minus The Price Tag

Wednesday, 28 June 2017

peexo fashion blogger reformation vibes
Reformation is one of those brands that I think it's safe to say most people are obsessed with at the moment, their wrap dresses are gorgeous and just the general vibe of the brand encapsulates summer. Whilst I have yet to invest in the brand myself, I have definitely been loving seeing pieces on the high street (and subsequently, snapping up said pieces) that are inspired by the brand.

Gingham is a serious statement piece right now! I think every girl, and probably guy, has at least one gingham piece sitting in their wardrobe. I have about ten. When I think of gingham, I think cute summer's day wear but I wanted to toughen up the print a little and make it evening ready.

The trench coat: an essential in everybody's spring wardrobe. Sadly, the start of spring has welcomed spring showers but I guess that's somewhat expected, particularly in the UK. It's meant I've been going back and forth between my winter and spring picks with no inbetween.
