Greetings from Marbella! Words cannot describe just how happy I am to finally be here! My family have a villa over here so it sort of feels like a second home. Last night I was reunited with Puerto Banus so as you can imagine I'm writing this from the depths of my hangover right now! I always struggle with what to wear during nights out on holiday as I get sooo hot in the bars but don't want to bare too much skin. I opted for this Topshop fringe crop top which I think is a good staple item for holiday as it can be worn with shorts or maxi skirts or on the beach. I've worn it with my Zara lime silk shorts, the fringing hides my waist a bit so I didn't feel too exposed. I added my new Zara statement necklace which I picked up yesterday, the lime green stones perfectly matched the shorts so it was meant to be! I also used my H&M tortoise shell clutch which I hunted down in the Covent Garden stores. I haven't seen it around anywhere else but I'm sure it will pop up soon.

It's really unusual of me to wear my hair down on holiday, but I found these loose curls really stayed during the entire night. I used my Enrapture Totem Styler on the setting 2-2-3 so the waves were fairly loose at the root and mid lengths but tight at the ends. I never used to rate this curling tong but since having a play around with the different settings it soon became my favourite. I think it's really good at creating that relaxed wavy look which is great for holiday and so easy to do!
