There's something very exciting and exotic about going to an island and Hvar, the Croatian Island on the Adriatic sea was no exception. When my sister and planned our Croatia trip, we knew we had to squeeze in a day trip to Hvar, know for it's ancient walls, marble streets, glitz and glamour as well as endless hours of sunshine! Whilst Spilt is bustling, charming and historic. Hvar has a more up market Mediterranean feel, harbour lined with shiny yachts, beach clubs and chic restaurants. There was a mix of people from sun seekers, party goers to families, all there to soak up the glorious island life. I wanted to share with you guys a quick guide to this beautiful Croatian island, hope you guys enjoy!

I had one of those 'I don't know what to wear' moments at the weekend, whilst staring at my wardrobe which is pretty full, haha you know that feeling ladies! Anyway it's been pretty hot in London and sometimes I find dressing for warm weather more tricky than when it's colder. When I'm not working I like to be casual but still look put together. So I paired my all white Converse Jack Purcell trainers, black dress and bomber jacket, which ticks all the boxes for easy Summer style!

Do you like the sound of sunshine, sea views, seafood and history? Then I think you would love Croatia, in particular Split. My sister and I spent around 4 days here and got to explore lots of places. It's the perfect location for everyone - families, groups of friends and couples. It has a lovely buzzy vibe without being too overwhelming and the Croatians are relaxed and friendly. The only con was the searing heat when we went at the end of July (32 degrees). I know I shouldn't complain but it was intense - your girl was a hot mess! If you don't mind the heat, here are 7 things I would recommend to see and do whilst in Split, hope you find it useful :)

I'm definitely a City girl but I do I enjoy hanging out with good old mother nature when I can. My sister Thuy was going to the Mayfield Lavender Field and ask if I wanted to go. It's one of those places we always wanted to visit but never got round to it, which is odd as it's only 10 minutes from our parents house. Plus it's a fab spot for bloggerz to get some pics ;) Thankfully my sis shares my love for taking a million and one photos! If you plan to have professional photos done here, you just need to let them know - engagement shoots etc :)
We spent a beautiful morning roaming the lavender farm. The weather was perfect - how gorgeous does the sky look! We arrived nice and early and paid our £1 entry fee (parking is free). I get so bogged down with working and sitting in front of my computer all the time, it's nice to take some time out and enjoy being outdoors.

Happy August guys, how you all been? Hope you're all having a fab Summer and all that good stuff. Yesterday I was sweating it out in 32 degrees heat in Croatia and now I'm sat in my hoodie typing this post, talk about getting back to reality haha. Anyway I'm still on a high from visiting the Plitvice Lakes National Park with my sister. If you plan to go to Croatia I would highly recommend the lakes! It was definitely the highlight of my trip and one of the best travel experience I've ever had, I still can't get over how magnificent the views were (I'm going to run out of adjectives to describe this place!)
