Why: Dorset is located in the South West of the UK, and can be easily accessed from many key roads. It is a great option if you want a beautiful yet affordable break, where you can take part in many different activities and enjoy some amazing food.
What To Do: Take a walk along to Durdle Door, an impressive limestone arch located along the Jurassic coast (a World Heritage Site and one of the wonders of the natural world). Or take a walk along one of the many gorgeous beaches and hunt for fossils – the coastline is famous for its geological importance and the vast amount of fossilised remains which can still be found today. After this, head to the stunning Corfe Castle and take a picnic to eat on the grounds!
Get the perfect look for Dorset by styling the gorgeous Infinity 2440 cat-eye glasses with this perfect outfit to keep you warm and dry just in case of inclement weather!
The yellow jacket is the ideal colour for the Springtime, and would look great teamed with some simple black skinny jeans, some leather walking boots and this colourful striped jumper!
Why: Flights from the UK to Amsterdam only take just over an hour, and then Lisse is a mere 45-minute drive away. It is a beautiful small town away from the busyness of the capital city, with many things still to do and some gorgeous cafes which are the ideal place to sit and while away the hours over a cup of coffee and some cake!
What To Do: Visit the Keukenhof garden, which is famous for the seven million Spring-flowering bulbs which pop up every year and make a breathtaking display of colour – perfect for photos! It is the world’s largest flower garden and typically open from March until May. Then take a stroll around the 17th century Keukenhof castle before visiting one of the many cafes in town!
Pair the gorgeous pink mirrored Ray-Ban RB3025 with this gorgeous white cable knit jumper and star print jeans. We adore the retro aviator style of these sunnies! They would look fab with this pretty pale pink leather satchel and white Converse – perfect for exploring Keukenhof garden.
Have you seen my new vlog yet? I partnered with Lenor to show you my day at home in between all my travels this month… my favourite time to switch off! Their new 'Inspired By Nature' Silk Tree Blossom scent is inspired by these beautiful blooms in Japan, so it took me straight back to my visit last week ❤ #Lenor #InspiredByNature #Ad #TakeMeBack
Why: Toyko may be a long way away, but it is totally worth the flight time! Famous for its unique character, incredible fashion and friendly people, you will be spoilt for choice during a break in Japan’s capital city!
What To Do: Head to Shinjuku Gyoen – one of the most beautiful parks in Tokyo and take part in hanami (also known as cherry blossom viewing!) Japan is so famous for its spectacular cherry blossom trees during the Springtime, and shouldn’t be missed!
Who’s tired of winter and can’t wait for spring like me? ✨💃🏻💐 #ladyinpink • I want to apologize for not being super active the last few weeks. It’s almost the end of my coding bootcamp, and it’s quite intense at the moment, so I don’t have time to go out and shoot (and it’s way too cold too ❄️). And also, I was super sick the last few days 🤒. I promise I’ll be (fully) back soon! • • Dress by me! Thank you @morgylh for your help! ♥️ • • • #parisianlifestyle #passionpassport #adventuretillwedie #chasinglights #chasingsunset #liveauthentic #welltravelled #elegantgirl #wheninparis #brunettelife #beautifuldestinations #peoplescreatives #livelevel #flowerpassion #pastelsky #parisianview #lifeofadventure #stayandwander #pinksky #wanderwoman #mytinyatlas #travelgram #wanderlust #parisjetaime #theadventureproject #awesomeearth #lovewinter #frenchgirl #winterlights
Why: The city of romance, delicious food and incredible culture Paris is one of those places you need to visit at least once in your lifetime! Fly there, take the Eurostar or drive!
What To Do: Take a walk around the Eiffel Tower, or go and take in some culture at the Louvre. Or go and visit the stunning Parc des Buttes-Chaumont and enjoy the blossom and spring flowers!
The Channel Islands
Why: Easy to get to either by plane or boat, the Channel Islands consist of Guernsey, Jersey, Alderney, Sark, Herm, Jethou and Brechou. They are just off the coast of France, and so not too far from the UK but feel a whole world away!
What To Do: Sunbathe on one of the many beaches, visit one of the top restaurants or if you love animals then why not visit Jersey Zoo? There’s so much to do on each of the different islands!
Get the perfect relaxed beachy look with these denim shorts, white crop top and a colourful beach bag! The Savannah J2310 would look fab with this outfit, with their flattering wayfarer style and brown frames and lenses.
