Oh I miss the weather captured in these photos. It has rained all day today and the fact that I'm flying down to Cornwall for Boardmasters Festival this week makes me less optimistic about the weather forecast. Being in Corfu was like a little snippet of paradise and exploring the old town was one of the highlights of the trip. I love towns left untouched with gorgeous architecture and lots of nooks and crannies to discover. All the houses and churches were painted in such pretty pastel colours. The town also had two fortified structures. We dragged our sweaty-selves up the more recently built fort and were greeted with a view of all the roof tops below and the sea beyond. In addition to the beautiful surroundings, my love for the trip was completed by discovering my new favourite outfit. Once the sun returns to the UK (if it ever does) then you will be seeing a lot more of this skirt and top combination.

A WEEK IN PARADISE | CORFU 2017

A couple of weeks ago I jetted to Corfu, Greece with my family for a relaxing escape. We stayed in the Paleokastritsa area at the Akrotiri beach hotel. It was so gorgeous, with views at both sides of the hotel onto clear blue waters. I would highly recommend the area and also the hotel. The rooms were lovely, the food and entertainment were good and the staff were so friendly. It was very relaxed and the scenery was breathtaking. I spent endless amounts of time just floating around in the sea down by the beach to clear my head. Myself and Alice (my sister) also loved jumping into the sea from the "rocky beach" at the other side of the peninsula which the hotel was situated on. I wont lie, at first I was really scared of the deep and open waters but by the end of the week I became a bit more brave. My favourite part of the holiday was when we rented a speed boat and took it around the bays, jumping into the sea and swimming ashore.

I will have a few more posts up documenting individual days from the holiday over the next couple of weeks as well as coverage of my Boardmasters festival trip so keep your eyes peeled.

ETHICAL PICKS: MAYAMIKO S/S 17





[ IMAGES: MAYAMIKO ]

As strange as it is, it's beginning to get a little too late to show you my favourite pieces from a brand's S/S 17 collection. Most of them are currently previewing their A/W collections and shooting the pieces for their websites and promotion. I guess that just shows the fast pace of the fashion industry. However, this is a good time to buy due to the sales. People Tree have a massive sale on at the moment with many of the items I was lusting over in my post about their S/S 17 collection that you can read about here. As well as the sales, these pieces are often great for transitioning into Autumn so you will definitely get year round wear from them.

Today I've picked Mayamiko to share with you. If you are into ethical fashion then probably already know about the brand but I hoped people that had never heard of them before would stumble across this post and fall in love with their beautiful patterns and colours. The brand in my opinion is personally affordable which is great as that means it is making ethical and sustainable fashion more accessible.

The pieces in these collections are gorgeous. Maybe not a recommendation for the minimalists out there but these pieces could sit very well in a more basic wardrobe to inject some colour. The pieces are also very on trend with big sleeves, ruffles and knot details. However, at the same time they are incredibly classic and would be treasured in wardrobes for quite a long time. My favourite piece has to be the knot dress in the Pandora print in the first image. Sadly I left it too late to purchase it before my holiday but I hope you might be able to grab some last minute holiday buys! If you buy anything from Mayamiko or already have any of their pieces then make sure to tag me in your photos to give me some styling inspiration.
