Pool & Beach Life

Hotel: Dreams Palm Beach, Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

Is it normal to feel so much sadness when looking at today's positively miserable weather and then back at these photos? We have been home over a week now but my heart is still firmly in the Caribbean. Here are some photos from around the hotel's pool and beach which was beautiful - we stayed at the Dreams Palm Beach Hotel in Punta Cana. The hotel's staff were some of the friendliest I have encountered with nothing being too much trouble, with 5 different restuarants to choose from you were spoilt for choice for dinner, a casino and nightclub on site along with pool and beach side waiter service for drinks. The hotel's only downfall in my opinion is no free wifi (only in the lobby, but it was shockingly slow and barely connected), otherwise a fantastic stay in a stunning location.

Where do all vacations start..


In Jamie Oliver's restaurant at Gatwick Airport - well they do for me. We arrived FAR too early in the morning for my brain to function properly, but having met the rest of our holiday/wedding entourage we headed straight for Jamie's where I ordered the tastiest Prosecco to sort out my fuzzy head, followed by pancakes of course! Fast forward 9 hours and we had landed in the Dominican Republic, though I must mention Thomson Airway's new Dreamliner plane which is truly a dream. Less noise, smoother landing and take off, free alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks during your flight, a three course meal, larger windows controlled by dimmers plus a library of movies to choose from! Three cosmo's later in the hotel bar, the jet lag was kicking in so we put our head down for the night on a bed big enough for 5!

Just stumbled across this old outfit I haven't posted on here yet while trying to sort through my hundreds of holiday photos. This should hopefully be my last 'pale' post for a while - Dominican Republic photos will be up soon!

Flying high...



We are currently on a plane somewhere across the Atlantic on our way to Dominican Republic for two whole weeks of relaxation, which is much needed after the craziest few working weeks. For updates whilst we are away, make sure you check our instagram @tanyaprendergast and @karl_w_moyce 

See you soon!

Jennifer Lawrence for Dior Spring 15



Nothing makes me more excited for spring than these beautiful shots of 'it' girl, Jennifer Lawrence in Dior's new Spring 15 campaign. She is still killing it in the fashion stakes and is definitely still holding the title of 'golden girl' by the world. #teamjen

Silver Linings

Top by Theory; Jacket and Necklace by Zara; Skirt by ASOS; Bag by Marc Jacobs; Shoes by Primark; Glasses by Cheap Monday

After a busy working week, I have my mind firmly set on my holiday which is less than two weeks away. With a dead arm thanks to my injections and a bag full of malaria tablets I am more than ready for some sunshine (my legs could do with some colour at least!)  In preparation for some much needed vitamin D, I have done the unthinkable and gone bare legged for this outfit. Honestly, those blue shoes are a firm favourite which go great with muted tones!

Four Eyes

Glasses by Cheap Monday; Shirt by Zara

As you may of noticed, I got myself some new specs a few weeks ago. I've always worn glasses for work purposes as I spend 9+ hours everyday on a computer, and finally I found my dream frames and now can't take them off. I never knew Cheap Monday did glasses...
