It was time for a much needed break, and what better way to relax than getting on a plane, jetting to Greece and enjoying the delights Rhodes has to offer for a week?
The weather was a little intense (to say the least) for my milky toned skin, reaching an unbearable 34 degrees most days. This made the evening ‘get ready’ process somewhat worthless, as the humidity and heat took hold. I did however, by the end of the week, have a few go to hairstyles and beauty products I was continually relying to combine with lightweight outfit choices. That being said, I thought I would share a few of them with you for some holiday inspiration!
I fashioned my hair into a wet look style, pinned at the back of my head and falling into loose natural waves. This isn’t a look I’ve created before but it helped keep my hair away from my face and neck, providing some much needed relief from the heat. My outfit choice was a simple lightweight tunic from H&M and nude heels from Topshop. This was a relatively inexpensive outfit but the print screams holiday!
The next outfit is a dress perfect for a special occasion. In truth, this dress has been a go to for a while now. It’s a Zara number that never fails to provide an eye-catching option for the evening. I also found french braids became my best friend as they were a quick way to keep my hair up!
Lastly, I wanted to share with you a product that I had been saving until this holiday and something which formed the base of every evening outfit choice. This is the Glow Together Jumbo Matte-Shimmer bronzer from Pur Cosmetics. This bronzer really worked its magic, showcasing a bronzed hue even the more tanned individuals amongst us would desire! The combination of matte and shimmer shades makes it a great all-rounder too. My only worry was that this may not travel so well due to the size of the enormous “jumbo” pan. As a result, it sat comfortably in my hand luggage for the duration of both flights. It did however survive and to this day remains firmly at the top of my beauty “must-pack” list for future adventures. Well worth a purchase!
Thanks for reading this week!
