Abroad update – Flirty frocks 

This maxi dress fits me like a glove. The dreaded moment before entering the changing rooms, the final result – IT FITS! This being a big deal to me due to the fact my height is 5.1 and maxi dresses are always best suited for longer legs.

This dress was perfect for my Barcelona trip, blending with the ostentatious buildings and weathered grimmy streets; this dress was the perfect loose chiffon dress for Barcelona weather. The small pretty peach and blue flower prints made the dress playful, but the wrap around the chest and the tie-in at the waste gave the dress that flirtatious effect. 

This summer it is all about the froks and I’m almost disappointed that I didn’t invest in more. There is always next time…Catch me in my new froks when in Rome!

Abroad update – Switching from skirt to shorts! How to dress for two occasions

It’s our second night here in main land Spain and we are in love.
Heaven on earth
We decided to hit the town for a meal and ONLY a few drinks. But, we suddenly wound up at this bar and left 2 am with these guitarists just singing to us towards the end! 

It was a good job I had my shorts on for the night

I feel better in denim shorts for a night out. Either shorts or skirt but a good pair of denim shorts always looks best with a black belt. 
I coordinated black and blue together; Black is brilliant for night time outfits, and blue accessories seemed like a chic touch! 

My dangly earings which are royal blue give the outfit a real elegant feel and when you work your way down you get more of an edge to the outfit with the denim shorts and belt. The shoes which are great length give the entire outfit that sexy and sophisticated look.
My day to evening outfit

If you were to go without accesories in a bright/bold colour, both outfits could look a little flat, as there isn’t enough colour in the outfit alone to draw attention. 
I love the white skirt and it’s sweet shape. The metallic rings and zip at the front is daring and can take you through to the evening. But denim shorts for a night out on your holiday is my personal preference. 

To get my outfit:

  • Skirt and top – pretty little thing 
  • Shorts – H&M
  • Earings – Jasper Conran 

Versatile blogger award!!

AMAZING!

I have been nominated by the lovely pastelbottlerocket! It means so much thank you again! Here is her link guys get following I love her reads! Pastelbottlerocket.wordpress.com

  1.  Thank the blogger who nominated you and share their link
  2. Nominated 10 other bloggers and share their links, male sure to tell them! 
  3. Reveal 7 facts about yourself that your readers do not know of.

My 7 facts!

  1. I like to eat and drink at the same time…gross but it’s a bad habit I keep doing😂
  2. I’m actually scared sometimes to wear really bright colours, bright pinks, yellows, greens and oranges freak me out because I’m so pale against them! I prefer to have those colours in accessories.
  3. I started this blog because I do journalism and thought a blog would be a really good thing to have and do on stuff I like…but I didn’t know what I liked SO MUCH to write about… I have always loved fashion and beauty, I have always had an eye for being creative with clothes so I thought I would do a blog on those (truthfully speaking because I thought it would be easy) the sooner I got into writing fashion and beauty blogs the more I became obsessed. In doing journalism I knew what avenue I wanted to go down! Fashion journalism. This blog has really opened my eyes of what makes me me and it’s my absolute love!!!!! It’s not easy at all, trying to find things to talk about to get my followers reading and liking! But I think I’m going a good job so far:) I just wish I had help like this when I was going through awkward stages to help me coordinate outfits and help me update myself on what styles suit my shape and height and everything else. 
  4. Me and my boyfriend have been together for 5 years and he’s one of my biggest supporters in my love of writing!
  5. I have a deep phobia of small spaces. It’s really bad! I have bad panic attacks.
  6. My blog is called Moda Theresa as a sort of spin off to my middle name and the fact it’s spoonerism, switching one or two letters for humorous affect!
  7. I have never been one to Netflix and chill. Never watched a series. I’ve tried and failed after half way into a one episode.

Safe tan with Dove cell moisturizing summer glow 

Fake tanning can be a pain. Its sticky and smelly and can often be streaky. 

But Dove summer revived tanning body lotion smells like biscuits!! Non streaky!! Very natural!!

This is my absolute go too bottle after I get out of the shower or bath. 

I noticed the result in just a day! This stuff is so much better for your skin as it clearly states it’s a cell moisturiser. Unlike ordinary fake tan that blocks your pores and makes you spotty.

I’ve seen so many reviews. I got the bottle and I’m a fan!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

P.s this bottle comes in fair to medium and medium to dark.

Tote bags can be more than just plain bags! 

Just as I was about to buy another bag for holiday, it struck me that my gorgeous interior designed tote bag was sitting at home. Practical room and brilliant compartments…but so plain! 

As I turned away from the bag, I saw on one rail, gorgeous thin neck scarves and the idea just came to me. 

This is my bag before

This is my bag now…

Here is another style…

I love the yellow, cream and black colours in the scarf because it looks lovely against the red background.
Here is how I done it…

  •  Be really carefully when piercing through the bag with scissors. 
  • If you want the fabric to have a bow or be a certain length just pull the inside for the length to be shorter or if you want it longer then pull the two ends of the scarf closer to you.                                                                                   If your tote bag is expensive and you don’t want to poke holes through it then it’s fine to just wrap the scarf around one of the handles. That would be a pretty touch!

      The Manuka doctor saves me everytime!

      In this post I want to talk about the Manuka doctor facial oil. My cosmetic draw is nearly full to the brim with Manuka doctor and dr. Organic!

       The bottle is just so cute for a start, I love the pump! Sometimes I wish it had an installed brush but st the same time, with the oil being in your hands you can apply it as a hand lotion. Great for the front of the hands and on your neck and brilliant for your eyelids.

      Those wrinkles will be there one day so it’s always good to be one step ahead!

      This should be applied before bed! Not in the day if you don’t like having a shiny face.

      This product takes a while to see the results. Perhaps 2 weeks before you start to notice your complexion becoming more of an even tone. 

      In the first week you will most probably experience a break out from using this stuff. You might not, but with the product being oil, It will certainly draw out some zits but when you continue to use it your skin becomes used to the product. 

      That doesn’t sound like the best of news, but trust! I hate zits more than anyone but I persevered and my face was just so glowing in the morning and through the day. 

      My makeup stayed on better through the day. 
      Hope this helped you guys! It cost me £12 from beauty bay! Hope you guys invest in this❤ 

      Amazing styles that will get you through the awkward temperatures. 

      It’s finally spring! The sunshine now begins to peer through your curtains early morning and we are finally leaving the miserbale dark and cold mornings behind us. 

      Despite this lovely sunny weather, there is still a chill in the air. I don’t know where you guys are from but I know here in Britian it’s still a little breezy at times, but so bright and sunny…it looks weird being in boots, scarves, and wooly jumpers now – so here are the best tips you can get for tackling the cold temperatures in summery clothes but still keeping warm. 

      Topshop website.

      denim jacket is a must have item and is defiantly your angel when it comes to the awkward weather temperature!

      I will be mentioning a denim jacket with every outfit trend I suggest on this post! 

      It’s so light but also keeps your body locked in for warmth. Underneath you can wear bright clothes like this model, striped tops are so in and the white jeans keep the outfit looking light. The thin statement scarf is brilliant if you want to keep your chest warm without looking like your still hung up on the winter weather.

      Newlook website.

      This lovely red cat print scater dress from Newlook is brilliant for looking summery and elegant but to keep yourself away from that cold breeze, wear black skin tights with grey slip on plimsolls or ankle boots with a denim jacket.

      This red newlook backpack over a denim jacket would make this entire outfit even sweeter – a very college student look.

      I know it’s another red dress but this time its ribbed and its longer. Any colour will do, chuck your favourite trainers on (mine being original Adidas) and then add your denim jacket. Such an easy and simply style – to look more edgy perhaps use a choker like I have in this picture. Plus I felt a bit too summery with just a dress and the denim jacket with there were a few clouds in the sky, so I just added a plain black shirt sleeved top and tighed it up at the front.
