I have chosen some of my favourite Sunnylife goodies below but honestly it was so hard to chose as everything is amazing!

The floats are by far one of my favourite as they make the perfect accessory for bikini shots on holiday! & they are a great size so are genuinely really comfortable for relaxing and sunbathing on. All these holiday accessories are making me desperate to book another flight to the sun ASAP!

Really excited to share today’s post with you guys > New Look Summer Style!

I am literally loving New Look at the moment, honestly when I was looking through their New In the other day there was so much stuff that I wanted!

Usually, New Look has always been my go-to shop for shoes. They have every style and colour of shoe you can imagine at the best prices. Their sandals at the moment are insane – check them out 

For today’s post I have styled a classic ‘summer style’ outfit and mixed white with red for a really beautiful, clean and bright look.

New Look are also hosting a super exciting competition for you guys, just scroll down to read more about it!

white summer style

Believe it or not other than a pair of white jeans, these are my first white trousers I have ever owned and I don’t know what I’ve been doing all this time! They are so comfortable and the fit is perfect, but what I love most about these is they go with pretty much anything! I can dress them up with a pair of heels and pretty top, or down with a pair of trainers and a tee!

red newlook sandals

Shop my shoes

I instantly fell in love with these shoes when I saw them. They are a lovely bright red suede (genuine leather) so are perfect for summer. I am not joking, they are so comfortable and easy to walk in it is ridiculous! The heel is quite high so I wasn’t expecting them to be that comfy but they truly are. I can tell these are going to my absolute go-to shoe this summer.

Again this bag is something else I just ‘had to have’ as soon as I saw it. What more could you want from a beach bag, then a classic straw bag with gorgeous sequin tropical leaves on?! This is by far my favourite beach bag I have ever seen! It’s super light and there is loads of room inside so perfect for me, a blogger on the go!

Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer and Styler Review

Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer and Styler Review

revlon one step hair dryer review

Today’s post is one that I haven’t done in a while – a product review post!

Now I don’t know about you, but I am literally the worst at blowdrying my own hair. I just suck at it, and can never get it go nice and smooth or flicky/wavey at all. I wish I could literally just have a blowdry at the salon twice a week and be done with it.

However, when I came across this new Revlon pro styler tool, I thought it would be worth a shot to try it and see if it helps me.

What I like about this product in particular is, it’s a hairdryer/styler/brush all in one! That was one of the best parts about it for me, as it made the process so much easier. Whereas usually I would be trying to brush my hair, use a blowdry brush and hold the hair dryer all in one go – a disaster! So this is super easy as you can imagine with just the one tool needed.

The bristles are de-tangling so perfect for my hair which gets tangled a lot!

It’s also surprisingly really lightweight.

It honestly dried my hair so fast, and genuinely made my hair super smooth and I actually got into the hang of flicking inwards at the bottom to add a wave/flicky style to my hair.

Step 1: Take a section of hair and start brushing the dryer downwards

Step 2: Start brushing from the inner part of the hair downwards to the ends to create a flick
 

This is the final look that I created!

I recently went to Greece, which in case you don’t know is technically like a home to me as I am half Greek (my dad’s side)

My parents have a villa in a beautiful place called Porto Heli, so I always try and go and have a relaxing holiday there at least once a year!

This time when I went I shot a summer style lookbook with one of my favourite brands, Pretty Little Thing.  These are some of my favourite summer pieces I have selected from PLT. These pieces are perfect to wear on holiday, and some of them are a little bit festival-esque too! I hope you like my lookbook 🙂

Not joking this is my favourite bikini EVER! I just find the fit perfect, and I love that rather than showing a bit of cleavage it shows underboob instead, which seems to be quite popular at the moment.

Unfortunately the silver belt has now sold out. But they have similar stuff: here 

white fur cuffs top

I am a big lover of anything fluffy, so trust me even in a summer lookbook to find in a way to work in a top with fur cuff sleeves! I absolutely fell in love with this top as soon as I saw it. The beautiful white lace is so pretty and delicate and the fur cuffs add such a uniqueness to it.

How beautiful is that sky behind me?! Honestly I don’t think I’ve ever seen better sunsets then the ones in Greece.

Unfortunately these gorgeous floral print trousers have now sold out, but the top is still available: here

Ladies Day Epsom Derby

Ladies Day Epsom Derby

I am super excited as I will be attending my first ever Ladies Day at Epsom Derby on Friday 2nd June.

It has been one of those events that I have always wanted to attend but have just never got round to going to – well now I am!

Every year on the first Friday of June, people gather at the Epsom Downs racecourse for a day of exciting horse racing, music, glamour and fashion!

I have already sorted my dress out, I will be wearing a beautiful nude (of course) dress by the fabulous Chi Chi London. They are the perfect brand I go to when I have a formal event such as this to attend. I would really recommend their dresses if you are ever attending a races day, or perhaps a wedding!

I’ve shown you guys a little sneak peak of my dress below, and will post a full picture of me in the dress on the day.chi chi london  

What I am looking forward to at this Ladies Day is to see all the ladies and gents in their most formal attire! I love that it is tradition for ladies to wear a hat or a fascinator!

I still need to find one to wear myself so if anyone has any suggestions for the perfect fascinator then please do send them my way!

I am going to opt for some simply nude court heels most likely, as these are comfortable yet still elegant and will compliment my dress beautifully.

As I have opted for a nude colour, I most certainly will need a tan.  Luckily I am in Greece from the 21st – 28th May so will hopefully be a nice colour just in time for the Ladies Day 🙂

My hair style will all depend on what hat/fascinator I opt for, but I will most likely do some bouncy waves and leave my hair down as that is when I feel my best.

I have also already prepared my make-up look – I am going to opt for a soft nude colour. My Toofaced sweet peach eyeshadow palette is perfect for this as it has a beautiful array of peachy nude tones and I will wear my trust NYX Cairo lip cream on my lips.

I am honestly so excited! Be sure to follow me on instagram @toularose and snapchat: toula_rose to see pictures from the day of what I get up to!

I believe there is also going to be an after party on the Hyperion lawn that Mark Wright is DJing at.

If you guys fancy heading down for a fabulous day then just head to the website and purchase yourself some tickets!

Hope to see you there!
