Golden Hour

What I'm Wearing

Dress - C/O Fat Face | Shoes - C/O Fat Face

Is it me or does it feel like we've had a super long summer this year? I honestly am expecting the weather to turn rapidly soon to snowfall because we've been so lucky with the sun. I've been able to do so many different things this year thanks to the lack of rain, including my fair share of picnics and long walks around the beautiful English countryside.

How to Spend a Weekend in Milan

Oh, Milan. I can't even describe how much I loved this trip. Everything about it was just perfect and I honestly had the most magical time there. I've pretty much been ranting and raving to everyone since I got back about how beautiful the city is and how everyone needs to visit it one day. So, I thought I'd put together a little guide to spending a weekend there, with a few recommendations and tips that may help you if you ever decide to visit in the future...

The Fairytale Hotel

As someone who is a self-confessed control freak when it comes to holiday planning (I like to know exactly what we're going to be doing on each day at what time etc etc...), I have to say it was a bit of a struggle to let my boyfriend take control of choosing a hotel. Because Milan was a surprise, I had literally no clue where we were off to until that week, so it was up to him to find somewhere. I'm pretty fussy when it comes to hotels too, so he was under a bit of pressure.

But I soon discovered we were staying in Chateau Monfort; an absolutely stunning converted mansion located just 15 minutes from the Duomo. Not only was the building pink (so it's already a dream come true), but the interior is based around the theme of fairy tales, with the white rabbit as their mascot. Holy moly, the boy really did do good. 

Our room was the most adorable place I'd ever seen, with a keyhole wardrobe, a stunning tree mirror and a bathroom that has stepped out of my actual dreams (give me all that white marble!). 

Not only did we have a stunning room, but the lobby was so gorgeous that I could have probably spent the entire holiday there and not gotten bored. A white grand piano, a bar with a ticking clock and free sweets laid out in quirky, rabbit-shaped jars. 

Of course I took the opportunity to adorn my best tulle skirt and prance around pretending to be a princess. Can you blame me!?

Our booking also meant that we had free access to the most unique spa I've ever been in. It felt like stepping into some kind of mystical bathing house, with cool pools of water and waterfalls cascading from the ceilings. There was also the most incredible chandelier illuminating the beautiful pool. 

Chateau Monfort also very kindly gifted us with two 30 minute massages, which I have to say were pretty incredible. We had them on our second day and our feet were definitely already tired from walking around so much, so it was very welcome! The half hour consisted of a back and leg massage and my lord she had magic hands. I would highly recommend it if you're looking to be pampered into an almost comatose state of relaxation!

I cannot rant and rave about this hotel enough, honestly! Not only was it stunningly beautiful and matched my aesthetic perfectly, but the staff were so lovely and couldn't do enough to help. I've found with some hotels they're constantly trying to upsell you things within the hotel, but this wasn't the case with them at all. So if you're ever in Milan and fancy a bit of magic, I'd definitely snag a room! x

Sunrise in Milan

Dress - C/O Chi Chi London | Shoes - Dune London | Bag - C/O Zatchels

Last weekend, my boyfriend did something very special; he whisked me away to Milan for the weekend, landing in the 30 degree heat and immediately falling in love with the beautiful surroundings and stunning architecture. I have wanted to visit Milan for so many years, especially after seeing the Duomo for the first time on Instagram.

One Dress, Three Ways

If there's anything I've loved since watching Breakfast at Tiffany's it's a little black dress that makes me feel like Holly Golightly. I mean you can't go wrong with a classic, right?! So when the lovely people from Nicce London challenged me to style up their Essential Dress for three different occasions, I was so excited to experiment with different looks. They do some seriously awesome basics that you can do loads with, and the dress definitely didn't disappoint.

High Waisted

Top - C/O WearAll | Jeans - C/O WearAll | Watch - C/O Daniel Wellington | Sunglasses - River Island | Bag - C/O Zatchels

Is my entire wardrobe pink and white at the moment? Yes, most likely. But if I'm honest I'm totally ok with it! Especially when I'm rocking a pair of jeans that are so high waisted and skin tight that they could rival Sandy's from the end scene of Grease.

Some people may say, "Jordan, those sleeves are just getting a bit ridiculous now." To them I say, poppycock, and bust out a top like this one.

13 Life Lessons from my Mother

On my 21st birthday my mother gave me a letter. To this day it is one of my most treasured possessions, one of those objects that somebody wouldn't give a second glance to, but I know that it's priceless. Because, this letter contains the best advice anybody has ever given me; 13 life lessons that have changed the way I think about everything. So, when I discovered it again in my memory box the other day I felt that it would be selfish to keep this incredible advice to myself. Everyone should be able to treasure it like I have. I hope they help you as much as they have helped me.
