Dubai 2020


Hello and Good Evening

How is everyone doing? Half term came and went very quickly didn’t it?

Things really all come at once don’t they? We are in the process of moving and changing cars , whilst trying to catch up on day to day busy life.  The days just seem to roll into one a the moment!

Dubai couldn’t have come at a better time for us.  It was amazing to get away with my little crew and just chill!

We stayed at the Anantara on the palm

We have been once before about 3 years ago. Both this time and last, we had access lagoon rooms. For the boys these are perfect as they can have direct access to the little lagoon pool straight outside your room , although this time was even better as we had a mini beach opposite our room and they just absolutely loved it!

This is how the access rooms are , which is fab!
Our Room was the first block in and was prime position for the boys! I wouldn’t recommend this room if you don’t want to hear children, as this area is very busy with kids and you WILL have to get the beds early in this area. I used to set the alarm for 7am and put our bits out! I was even lucky enough that Mr O got up one day early to do it for me too! Everyone wants this spot as its fab for kids, also ask for this block if you want to have a lagoon room, you DO NOT want the lagoon rooms behind The Beach House. They are smaller and don’t have much sun on them!

We really had a wonderful time, would we go back for a 3rd time to this hotel… No!


Breakfast was very lame. Considering everyone raves about Dubai, saying they have this a that, for me it was nothing to wake up a get excited about! Although i did love the omelettes and had one every morning! The boys found it hard to find things to eat and it was hard work for us of a morning to get anything down them!


The room was very big and  spacious… but the bed was only changed once the whole time we was there and i had to keep asking for towels! The room was really dark too, the room we had 3 years ago was a lighter a slightly bigger room, although it was further up the lagoon and had not mini beach opposite it was nice!

This was a personal one for me, but the mirror to do hair etc, was so dark it had no light over it and was right near the patio door no where near the bathroom so i had to keep running back and forth to grab things, the mirror by the open wardrobe was literally on top of the open wardrobe which always looks a mess, so i couldn’t really snap any of my outfits , the light was terrible and you couldn’t see clearly as all our holiday wardrobe was behind it! (This really did drive me mad). Why have open wardrobes in a hotel , they always look a mess! They had so much space too put the full length mirror too but chose to put it there, drove me mad! Mind you that’s the ONLY thing i would change about The Fairmont in Barbados ,  please put nice Full length mirrors in the room , NOT inside the wardrobe door its really annoying!

Now we all know how much we love going out for dinner , well the hotel was VERY busy this time so it was extremely hard to get tables in one of the 5 restaurants ! If we had known this and the Anantara had answered my instagram messages before we arrived,  we would have been ok, but we never had the times  in the restaurants we wanted and found ourselves eating in the same one two nights running! So remember to book in advance! (As you know my Barbados restaurants are booked a year in advance).

If you decide to go between Jan / Feb  take warm coats for the evening , i nearly made them leave their puffers in the car at Gatwick, thank goodness i didn’t! Although i was prepared with hoodies , they still was not warm enough, but in all fairness towards to end of the week, it was warmer and the boys started to leave the puffers in the room!

If you are planning to stay here , this little boat every day runs on the lagoon , he rings his bell to let you know that he is around for you to have cocktails, we did this twice , but be warned its VERY expensive! A fab idea though just needs to be cheaper!

Fab idea, just very expensive!

Now for the good bit…


First night we dinned at the Beach House this was our favourite last time i think its the location its just the most magical setting , with a real holiday vibe and total tranquility!

We managed to sit outside near the end of the holiday for dinner
Followed by drinks here after , this for me was just beautiful , i could easily do that every evening!

So our first night i wore our Rainbow Polka dress

Our first Night

If you go Half Board as we did watch out as you can only order things off the menu that do NOT have prices next to them , and if your taste buds have expensive taste like mine do , you will still have to pay a sur-charge for all the yummy things! Except in Bushmans there steak with no price next to it , was AMAZING!

Back to our outfits.

The next day we headed off to breakfast in the glorious sun and i wore

The perfect dress for any occasion, it also comes in other colours! All my dresses on todays blog are available to order now! Head over to EYEZONZANELI on instagram to order!

Second night we ended up at back at The Beach house due to those dinner reservations being messed up as the hotel was super busy and as explained before they never had restaurants or times we wanted! It was a good job we liked The Beach House lol

I wore a beauty of a dress, super elegant and stylish…

The hair had to go up it was too hot , boys look so grown up !

We woke up to a super hot Sunday and i was desperate to wear my hat teamed with those amazing pearl sunglasses chains we have , super chic!

We decided we wanted to take the children to The Atlantis hotel to see the fish , so glad we did, by far it was our best night and actually wished we had booked this hotel instead! A few friends had put us off saying it was very big and busy, which it was , but it just had a vibe that we loved!

If we went again it would be staying here! We loved the fact especially it had 25 restaurants lol..

The boys loved looking at the fish..

Sonny running from the sharks bless him! Lucca was a bit wary too!
And they was pretty big …!

We decided that it was best to go for an Italian meal , plus the boys were desperate to get a Milanase  down them, they ended up having two each ha!

Ronda Locatelli
This was a WONDERFUL evening , not only was the food amazing, we sat outside , it was like being at Sandy Lane in Barbados. We wanted to go back for our last night but it is closed on a Wednesday! When you book , if you can be seated outside its just fabulous , inside is like sitting in ZIZI! which on holiday we all want something a bit special!

I wore a Zesty Lemon dress, and the boys coordinated in yellow Next shirts! Before we came away i realised that Lucca still had a lot of clothes he needed to wear that he hadn’t worn , and a few didn’t fit him, so he did end up matching Sonny a couple of nights, but being a real pro he he never moaned once , in-fact i don’t think he noticed! He is so easy and always supports mummy! I did say in November though he is 13 and he will have to model all our new Teenage range , he likes the sound of that, i think because he will have pictures done by himself and will feel very grown up , bless him! He loves a holiday pic , they both do actually, i often get lovely messages saying how good the boys are being in the pictures, i guess its in them, they have always done, that’s why our routine works and we do have a giggle when we do them too!

This dress went nuts on instagram and has already nearly sold out!

I didn’t want to leave this hotel , i just loved it after dinner we went for a long walk around the hotel , and decided this would be our next adventure , maybe next year! (fingers crossed).


Who said Bubblegum pink was no good for a Monday was wrong lol. I couldn’t wait to wear our NEW swirl pink dress, our other colours were so popular last year and this one has been just perfect i absolutely love it!

My beauty’s looking so handsome!

Sitting pretty in pink

Selling fast!

It was back to The Beach House for dinner!

When we arrived on our first night we was so late arriving that the only restaurant that was open was The Bushmans , the boys loved it so much , we had tried to get in since and finally managed to get in on the Tuesday .

I decided to wear a maxi inspired dress, this pattern looks so great with a tan and i had had this in my suitcase for the last 2 years back and forth to Spain and Barbados , but never wore it, so it was time to take it for a spin!

My Sonny Bunny looking so grown up! He still loves his mummy and is always by my side!


Lucca as nearly tall as me! Where does the time go?

The meal was amazing , but it was back to bed and ready for our last full day a night the next day…sad!

In the morning Sonny and myself decided to go for a walk on the beach, to be honest we didn’t sit on the beach at all this time, the sea was freezing and there was Jellyfish everywhere, i nearly stood on one on our walk!

I finally got to wear my Rainbow dress!

So let me just add , its a good job Mr O checked up on the flight details as i though we still had another whole day and night, was saying by the pool, not sure what dress to save for my last night, when he popped up and said…Its tonight you better choose! huh!!!!

So my afternoon was spent packing as we had to be up at the 3:00 to get ourselves to the airport! Again i hadn’t thought that one through!

Anyway our last Happy Hour was spent by the pool, Mr O used to play cards every afternoon with the boys while we had our Happy Hour cocktails!

If your thinking of staying here , check out all the restaurants they all do different Happy Hours! We only ever did the 3-5 one by the pool, as we always head in at 5 to start getting dinner ready!

I chose what i think was one of my favourite dresses , in fact it went crazy on insta and has been very popular…

Our last night!

We headed back to The Bushmans again , are you seeing a pattern ? This is what drove me mad , as you couldn’t get the restaurants we wanted we had to go back to the same one twice in this holiday in a row! Anyway we decided to go to The Lotus Lounge first upstairs , we did this every night before dinner

This was lovely and looked over the pool and beach, I used to sit here every night and not want to leave!

After drinks the boys played a bit of snooker while we waited for our table , the food was especially good for our last night, all i could think of was that early wake up call , so it was a sort of early night and a goodbye to The Anantara Dubai!

The boys were like zombies at the early wake up call, but we managed to get an hour on the plane then it was home to a very windy cold London Gatwick and home!

It really goes so fast when you only get a week away, but we really did have a wonderful chilled time, the kids had a blast and met some friends that i know they keep in touch with!

For any information on any of my outfits remember to contact me via Instagram EYEZONZANELLI

I hope you enjoyed my holiday blog!

All i will say is please be patient with me for your next post due to our move im not sure when i will have time but will do my best to keep you up to date !

Have a wonderful evening




A 90s round up 😍


Good Afternoon all

How are we all doing? Its been a while!  I have had a lot going on, so sorry for the late post!

First of a huge thank you to everyone who follows and continues to follow me on here and my instagram!  My instagram hit 10,000 at the beginning of January so that was a real nice surprise!

We are moving house and going on holiday all at the same time so needless to say , my feet have not touched the ground!

Mind you though i have still found time to have a nose on the high street and i found some amazing looks that i wanted to share with you.

River Island:

River Island dress , and it really does have that total Balmain vibe, love it.   Advise: Size up , and its very heavy, the buttons are stiff on it too! In all honesty i sent mine back as i thought its nice but don’t think i would wear much!
All over pink at the moment and this tassel fringe jacket is my idea of heaven with a real Cindy Mancini vibe { anyone who has watched Cant Buy Me Love the film will know }
And this blouse , well no words can explain my love for this i must say! PS: No your not going mad, my hair is dark i did it yesterday, my roots are driving me crazy, so back to brunette for a bit! No doubt i will be back blonde for the summer lol


Total 90s vibes in this beaut by Zara, i also ordered the darker version too Wearing medium . LOVE and those white GG tights too!
I highly recommend this colour in the GG tights { head to my Instagram  for details}
They just look great with denim and have that 90s vibe , which as you all know i love!

The White boot

I thought these were cute by BOOHOO
Loving these by Moda de Pelle

Remember if you style them well, the white shoe or boot will not look like you have raided the dressing up  box and heading off to a  90s fancy dress party!

I always keep it simple , try mixing old with new . I do love a vintage item and lucky enough my mum keeps everything so i pinched this Escada blazer from the 90s,  from her Spainish wardrobe from back in the day when we lived there.

Look at this blazer by Escada { vintage } , i paired with next jeans , vintage Casdei shoes and my new bag!

So if you have anything from the 80s or 90s go get it and jazz it up right now, you will be bang on trend!

As i mentioned we are away for half term , so make sure you check in next time to check out my holiday wardrobe! Hopefully it will be nice and warm, im so over the cold weather now!

Anyway im signing off as Lucca is away next week with the school and we still have loads to do. I just wanted to check in and say Hi.

Have a wonderful weekend.






Welcome to 2020!!!

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year! We had the perfect little Christmas at home just the four of us.   Lots off fizz and the boys played lots of games with daddy!

Boxing day we had a wonderful meal at Branded with my parents.  Then we went back, drank and eat more or at least they all did. I’m trying to keep the body ready for Feb half term as we are meant to be going away!

I wore my Cream Yumi Tunic dress, with My PB cardigan and GG tights…

Love wearing Creams and Whites at Christmas
Love these tights

New Year and we headed off to one of our favorites Primadonnas in West Wickham, it was lovely , we didn’t last till 12, but we did see it in with the kids! We came home and watched the fire works on TV and had some fizz! I wore my pink sequin dress by QUIZ clothing , the Sam Fairs range!

All over this colour love it!
My gorgeous bubbas!

So 2020 is upon us and i have for you today whats hot for 2020 fashion wise!

1: Its acceptable in 2020 to wear Silver and Gold jewelerry together, yes its true, and everyone is doing it!

Give it ago its all the trend for 2020


2: Another one that is  big for 2020 is to wear Navy and Black together!  I know its always been a fashion sin but everyone is  doing it ! To be honest i have always done it anyway. I did try a get Mr Ox to wear this a while back i wanted him to wear a Black suit with Navy shirt and black tie, he wasn’t having any of it! lol

If Victoria Beckham is doing it then you know its acceptable!


3: Leather is back for 2020 and its big, one item you should never get rid of is leather! I have always said leather never dates ! My Zara dress i had bespoken is defiantly making a come back in 2020

Love this dress infact i think i might wear next meal out!
Another look that never dates is the Blazer , shown here with my River Island leather skirt!

4: Dogtooth is huge and it has that catwalk vibe all over , i have vintage looks in my wardrobe that i have had for years in this print! Again something not to be thrown out, it ALWAYS makes a come back!

If the whole Dogtooth look is not your thing then do what i have done here and show a little of this print off ! Dress PB
My vintage Karen Millen coat still makes an appearance now and then!

5: The Turban


These are a god send for me im taking these on holiday , for anyone with Monica Holiday Hair , this is for you , available now from PB

The Colours for 2020

Pink, Purple , White and Teal and anything bright really!

So i hope i this is a bit of help for your 2020 wardrobe ladies!

Have a wonderful start to 2020!

Switching on Christmas 🎄


Hello and Good Afternoon

How are we all? How is it December?  This year has just flown by, so the tree is up as you all know i like it up for Lucca’s Birthday, that was in November ha!

Tree is up , i just need to wrap up more and add the ribbon to the presents!

Cant believe my boy is 12 and i turned 40 this year too, a huge thank you to Bree and the girls for making it a really wonderful evening! We went to Lupo Bianco in Locks Bottom, we just had a few nibbles, drank and giggled and danced! Just perfect… I shall look forward to see you all Friday for round two!

So hands up who is all over Sequins, Puff Sleeves , Bows, you name it , if its big and over the top this year , i want it!

Starting with River Island , these two really stood out to me, im loving Fuchsia Pink right now and unfortunately im too late to get this amazing jacket, only size 6s left online so time to hunt down one in store!

LOVE LOVE LOVE the Fuchsia Pink, and that dress perfect for the party season, with a pair of GG tights, just lush!


Classic but on trend, H&M is bringing the 80s back but in a chic way, they teamed up with Giambattista Vali recently and the first dress is by them, LOVE ! Something more subtle next to it, wear with gold to bring it to the party!


Two completely different ends of the scale, Pretty Little Thing sequin dress, i thought this was cute for a Christmas party with Red strappy sandals and Red evening bag! Dream Sister Jane dress with that fab bow, a few bloggers have been seen in this , unfortunately i cant imagine it on myself! But I love it!
ASOS cardigan dress, i thought this had a real Olivia Rubin vibe about it, especially if you was to  add some sparkly buttons instead of the ones it has on it. We all know how i love to stamp my own mark too!

Quiz Clothing by Sam Faires:

Loving this collection right now, Sam has designed some amazing looks for the festive season! Im still yet to wear the purple, but i really do love it! Look at that striking colour! i just need to find the perfect heel, im not loving the sandals with it!

Prestige Boutique:

Rainbow colours all day long , loving this , just no words except this blazer defiantly has the wow factor!
Classic looks that speak volumes here, although they are subtle , they just add sparkle!

Hair and Accessories:

I’ve chosen Prestige Boutique only because i do really believe we have some real party season looks that you will love!

They are Pink and they sparkle , what more could i ask for!
Looking for something simple but elegant , i thought these were cute!
Headband and Earrings PB . . Watch was kindly gifted to me by MVMT watches and i love it, its so classic! #jointhemvmt #mvmtforher
Whole look by PB, and i love it!


ASOS: Look at this its a dress and matching Bow Bag, just phenomenal!

Or maybe something not so in your face then this little clutch is cute

ASOS: This is very  Carrie Bradshaw
ASOS: Very Bottega!

Those Pink Shoes, so i have hunted some down for you and im sure you will love them.

So it’s a  roast dinner and snuggles this afternoon!

Have  a wonderful Sunday all and thank you for reading today!



Barbados 2019


Hello everyone hope your all doing well and had a wonderful  half term!

So as you know we headed off to our favorite place and we truly had the most amazing time as always! We were so lucky with the weather this year too 🙏.

After having a little fall out on route to Gatwick as Daddy O missed the turn off we finally got into the V room where we could relax and start to enjoy the V Room specials including this cool selfie booth

Boys had a quick pic while waiting for Daddy O , who took bloody ages to get from the car park to the terminal. By now i was well and truly ready for a chilled glass of fizz!

Boys looking very smart and ready to hit the V Room!


Most of my holiday are looks by our Prestige Boutique.  For anyone wanting to place any orders please go to my instagram and order on there – EYEZONZANELLI


My dress is from Prestige Boutique and sold out within one day of me wearing it (we do have the white version left for those interested).


After boarding we could eventually sit and relax. I watched The Hustle it was really good if you enjoyed  Dirty Rotten Scandals you will like this !

Barbados 2019

Our guy from The Fairmont hotel was there to meet and greet us for our fast pass through customs which really does help as after that long journey the kids really just wanted to get there and get swimming.

And after a hot ride we arrived.

The Fairmont Royal Pavillion

As you know from previous posts, Daddy O, always takes them off for a swim while I unpack then we usually just have a chilled night in the hotel restaurant! I especially love the Prawn  salad and couldn’t wait to get my hands on it!

Early to bed and early up it was.  Sonny and I went for a long walk on the beach at 6am and he captured this gorgeous picture for me ! Clever boy , he is doing a great job at taking my pictures lately 👋.

I could never get sick of this view!

The first night we always head to the Lonestar as it’s only a 3 min walk on the beach so it’s a nice and easy .

For anyone staying at The Fairmont and you want to do the same, if you ask at reception they will supply you with lanterns ! We didn’t do this as we only found out the night after, so it was phones to the rescue. And a  word of advise ,  mind the crabs 🦀.

Lonestar Restaurant

I wore a dress and sandals from Prestige Boutique and boys had their new Fortnight tops on from PB and next shorts with next sandals ( I’m not one for Fortnight, Batman or any logo tops like that as you know but as these seemed a bit more swish I gave them a go and the boys were surprised)

First night in whites!

And a quick picture before dinner

I think they was ready to drop off , always tired on the first night!

Sunday came and those who follow me on Instagram know that i had been looking for the perfect pink dress to wear. As you all know we always go pink for Sandy Lane . It took a while but i was super happy with my choice! That morning we didn’t really do much except a quick swim and chill. We like to get to Sandy Lane early to have a few drinks and take it all in!  To be honest we have had 2 years off of Sandy Lane’s Sunday Brunch and now i know why,  it was so hot and i do prefer going out on a evening , especially in Barbados, But as always it was amazing and we all loved it !

My beautiful dress is by a company called Honeyrocks , i was so thrilled with it! Boys matched up perfectly head to toe in Next!
It was so hot , the hair had to go up!

It was actually quite nice after all that wonderful food to head back to the hotel and get into bed , we chilled with a film while kids had an hour on the ipads!

We woke to a extremely hot day it was lovely.  I had to make sure the boys kept drinking water! We had decided to have a chilled night in the hotel so it was a nice lazy day . Although, we still got dressed up and did our pictures it was nice to be able to just walk out the door straight into the bar! We dined with some friends that were staying at the hotel which was very nice but Sonny didn’t quite make it past desert! I choose to wear my Dolce style dress with H sandals , just simple and easy! For anyone dining at The Fairmont i have been told  recommend the burgers!

Real bright colors for a evening at The Fairmont for dinner!
Dress and shoes: Prestige Boutique Boys : Next and Ralph Lauren

As you will know from previous posts , i do like classics on the boys and RL and Next are always my faith fulls 100%

Sonny and i were up early doors to get a snap of my new dress that I did manage to get a quick pic in Spain but i really felt this dress belonged in Barbados.

And im sure you will agree! Dress : ready to order

So once all photos were done it was time to head to breakfast for my omelette and smoke salmon , i really do try a be good on holiday ! I try to eat lots of fish a salads , in fact i always seem lose weight on holiday because i eat so well.  I don’t deprive myself of anything and will always eat if i fancy it, i just take in an extra swimming session the next day! One thing i did enjoy every morning is these health juices

We decided to head out on a boat ride so Daddy O and Lucca could do some water skiing , we had such a lovely time the water was so clear and truly beautiful! Poor Lucca didn’t manage to get up , Daddy O did very well!

We saw some fab celeb homes on our trip too, Daddy O has mentioned these houses before but i guess because i never venture out on the Jet Skis i have never seen them

This was my favorite The X Factor house!
Woody let Sonny take front seat too so he was very happy! I cant sing nothing but praise for Woody
Ask for Woody he is the best!

After our boat ride we decided to head back to the hotel and chill as after all we were heading to Hugos,  this is the sister restaurant to CIN CIN by THE SEA, we was all very excited , this was our favorite last year!

Loved wearing this dress by Prestige Boutique {sandals are by PB too and super comfy} Boys wearing: Neck&Neck and Pisamonas
Cocktails before dinner!
Always have to get toilet selfie at Hugos!

I do love a sequin number nothing like it with a tan , i always advise having at least one in your suitcase !

So after a lot of fun in Hugos, we decided to have a couple of Rum Punches in the bar to end the night off, so to be honest i just wanted to do nothing and that’s what we did.  I sat and took in this amazing view and drank my coffee hoping to feel better soon and swore that i never wanted to see a Rum Punch again!

This year i took no toys for the boys as hey they are getting older now but i did take a set of Drafts , Playing Cards and Dominos they were a hit. Not only with my kids but some of the others too and every day at 4 Daddy O would take them all to play 21 for peanuts , they loved it!

We decided to take it easy at the hotel for another night, the rain had set in, so we just wanted to chill! I was so lucky to receive some bits earlier on the year by Aspiga Beach so i wanted to show it off and wear it   Sonny and i went out to do pictures , he is getting so good now so proud of him! I especially like this one , romantic lighting with a smouldering shape!

Thank you Aspiga for my dress! { gifted}

It was up and out early for breakfast, followed by a long walk on the beach we absolutely loved it, it was fun to walk along and look at the houses. Plus to see the boys so happy really does make it for me! Although Lucca did take a bit of persuading to head out for the walk !

my world in my favorite place in the world!
Sonny and I had to take advantage of the huge mirror outside The Lonestar for a selfie!

Then we saw the house of our dreams

House of Dreams

But will settle for this and do a refurb ha!

And then the rain appeared and we came back from our walk to find a friend outside…

Sorry its not very clear pic, they are so fast! The ones in our hotel are not that brave! But i know my mum has stayed in other hotels where they have strolled through the lobby!

Cin Cin

Right, i know i said last year we wouldn’t go back, well i believe in second chances and we did give it a second chance this year, but NO! Next year we will not go again , the food was absolutley amazing as always but no im not paying all that money for poor service . One thing i have always found with CIN CIN is the service, they cant wait to get you in and out , when its time for the bill they soon bring that over but to wait 25mins before you get a drink, no not having it! Last year i thought we just had a one off bad night, it was sad to say it was the same this year!

Such a shame as the food and scenery is to die for!

I was excited to wear a vintage 80s number i had been saving for holiday and finally got the chance to wear!

I felt like Mercedes Lane in this dress , love a bit of 80s!
We found a great spot by the fountain too!

I added my Versace pins to give it that real 80s look, this is such a cute tip, if you have anything like this at home add to your some of your old things in the back of the wardrobe to spice your look up!

We woke to more rain and another long walk, if there is one thing about Barbados its the food and i love it, but i do try a keep on top of the weight especially on holiday.

Time for our walk

Boys was not impressed about another walk but it had to be done, after hiding under an umbrella for the best part of 10 mins we eventually headed for the pool, and Daddy O and i enjoyed a cold beverage with the lovely Marcia ( a lady i mentioned last year, im not allowed to say who this wonderful lady is but her company is huge and we all use it! I love her and we used to have cocktails every day , we started this tradition last year, so it was a real surprise when we crossed over this year).

The holiday was in full swing but in  reality we only had 4 nights left , so we dined at the hotel for the last  time of an evening before hitting our favorites before we head home!

I decided to leave my hair as i just couldn’t handle it any longer, i did say last year , i would take my own hair dryer this year which i did, but it was no use , it would have taken me all day to dry , the dryer just had no puff! So off i went to book in with the lovely Chreyle!

Back to Friday, i wanted to wear an Olivia Rubin dress i bought this from ASOS before OR was as huge as she is today! Pastles are always a winner with a tan, so the boys needless to say had to get in on  the action too!

I wore it with PB’s sequin headband
Daddy O took a wonderful pic too, we was trying to convince Sonny to do Canoeing with daddy! Did he do it the next day?

Yes he did look…

He loved it too! Luccas turn next year!

Then it was time to chill with some cards by the pool while i headed off to get the mop sorted out

Hair by Cheryl:

And for anyone that suffers with the holiday frizz , this product was absolutely amazing and my blow dry lasted until i got back to the uk so that was around 5 days. I know its expensive to get your hair done sometimes , but i honestly found it worth every penny this year!

Found this really good!


We was off to Tides and it was all about the Golds this evening as i decided to wear vintage Karen Millen

Of course we had to use that fountain again!
Boys looking super smart , the gold on their shirts really did compliment my dress just fab!
I think this was my favorite dress of the holiday!

Tides was truly amazing , in the top two of the holiday, but then to be fair it always is

Oysters for me and they went down extremely well!
A MUST for your main at Tides is the Lobster Curry! It really was mouth watering!

And of course we always have to get a family pic

If Tides looks like it would be one you would like to try , my advise is book in advance , a waterside table is a must here! I book all restaurants as soon as the deposit for the holiday is paid for. We like to have the same tables on the front , you travel all that way you don’t want to be stuck by the kitchen or without a view! BOOK EARLY!

Another tip,  we always find the restaurants clear out early , we tend to go out about 7:30 and that works especially as we like drinks first!

Well Sunday was upon us and its was nearly all over for another year.

A quick walk on the beach to wake myself up and Sonny took a cool pic of me wearing my Aspiga Beach kaftan (gifted).

As i waved Daddy O and Sonny off for there swim , Lucca and i had a nice chilled half hour in the sea trying to see if we could see any fish! It was so clear this year at The Fairmont which meant the boys could see so well in the sea!

It was nearly time to start packing it all away so i headed in early to make a start , we had been recommended IL TEMPO restaurant and i knew the boys was going to be happy as they could have their Chicken Milanese. So headed in early so i could get started!

I always have this thing once i wear an item on holiday , if i know im no wearing it again , i will put in the suitcase as i go and in theory it should make less packing , i keep one case (usually mine) open but standing up then just pop the  item of clothing in every night!

I don’t do this with the boys bits or Mr O’s , especially as i tend to keep the boys tops out so that i can jut throw them on for breakfast!


So it was IL Tempo we were off to, unfortunately for us it was only ok, not great but ok. The boys loved it , i think for us it lacked atmosphere! We was the only table in there too, but it was a Sunday and the season hadn’t really kicked off yet!

I wore my Lemon Cello dress as i call it by PB , boys had their bespoke matching tops on by PB too, its a real l Dolce look and oozes Italian style so the perfect look i thought for a little taste of Italy!

Heading out in our Lemon Dolce style outfits!

The day i dread had arrived , our last FULL day, it really is horrible when you wait all year for that dream holiday and just like that its over! Sad face !

For me this meant full blown sunbathing , lots of swimming and anything that will deepen the tan and firm up the flab!

Woody came up and challenged Lucca to drafts , this what  love about Barbados, no one has attitude, everyone is so supportive and friendly , its a shame people over here are not more like the bajan’s !

We never have lunch or head out as you may have noticed, why? Well we tend to eat breakfast late and to be honest we just don’t get hungry in the day not even the boys i guess we are in chilled mode ! Again we never head out into town , as for me i haven’t come all that way to go shopping and walk around in the heat! So if its sightseeing and shops your after on this blog , your looking at the wrong girl, i could not think of anything worse!

All day it was driving me crazy what to wear i had new pink bow shoes that i was desperate to wear but also a real gem of a dress by PB that was really beautiful. when i get like this i try not to stress i had plenty of looks left for me and the boys , you know incase we suddenly stay on longer! HA , yeah right, i wish! I always pack an extra 4 outfits so i can have plenty of choice if i need to , I tend to have a bath and just get ready then try on what i thought i might wear, this year as i wasn’t sure what to go with, which in all fare ness for me is unheard of, i showed Mr O and he liked the Dolce style dress the best and that was what i went with , the boys wore RL blue tops, Next black shorts and Pisamonas loafers!

Only one place for us on the last night is The Cliff and boy what a way to end it on, was by FAR the BEST  . As usual we feed the boys first at the hotel , if they was good eaters it wouldn’t be a problem, but they ate terrible eaters so chicken nuggets at the hotel if definitely a safer option for when we go to The Cliff . { we only do this for this restaurant }

If you get to the restaurant before 6pm you can feed these bad boys! We have never manged to be ready that early so never done it plus it would be too dark for the boy with their eyes!

No place like it in the world! Love Barbados!

The next day i was obviously not in a hurry to jump out of bed , i did manage to get an hour on the beach in my favorite bikini and say goodbye for another year!

Saying Goodbye x


Im not very good on our last day , i would rather get up and go, i hate the waiting about! I usually send Mr O out with the boys while i finish off! We always have a farewell lunch on the front to say our goodbyes ! The conversation usually consists of me asking if i book next year! ha! I think if we do go next year again we will 100% try some of the new restaurants that have opened , for anyone booked , i have been told Dockside at Port Ferdinand

How amazing does this one look, its 100% on my list

Another one that meant to be fab is La Cabane

Not sure if this is more a day thing but will definitely look into my parents are going next so they are going to give us the download on the new ones!

Some bits that i showed on stories was these popular looks

Whole look PB except phone case that KK designs!
Our Bow heels are so out there but so chic , i love them! i teamed them with this Zara dress for a real party look!
Rainbow earrings are one of our best sellers!

So there you have it ladies and gents the holiday spam all over for yet another year! Its taken a few days to finish this so sorry for the slow upload! And apologies if you have seen it on Instagram too!

I came back to my 40th and im out this Friday with all my lovely girls, a huge thanks to Bree for organizing! See you all then and be kind you know im a lightweight!

For everyone who had a October holiday hope you had fun, its all Christmas talk now! I think this could be the first year im not organised! We are moving in Jan and what with working with PB  its trying to find the time to do it all! I will buy some bits next week! Although i have Lucca’s  birthday first as well, oh god help me , take me back to Barbs!

Signing off to do the dinner now , back to reality!

Have a wonderful evening!







Vintage Versace 💕


Well Good Afternoon.

How are we all doing? I can’t quite believe we are nearing the end of September already!  Where does the time go!

So its been all go here! Last weekend we had the most wonderful weekend at Braxted Park in Essex for a family wedding!

Was such a wonderful venue!

They were so lucky with the weather, it was really beautiful day! I have to say I had been wondering what to wear for a while. As it was a wedding I wanted something easy yet stylish as it was going to be a long day! My mums wardrobe from the 90’s was out of this world and I knew she had a Versace dress in the loft that I had worn before. So it was time to dust it off and give it another spin!

Remember  Liz Hurley had that look back in the 90’s? I always remember thinking how fab she looked and super chic!

Mine wasn’t quite as reveling as this gorgeous dress! So i knew this was the one to go with! (i do have a similar Versace dress to this with the pins but have never worn it could be time to show that one off soon, i’d better get down the gym)
I went out and bought the matching earrings as well as the hair slides!
This really is one of my favorite dresses ever!

My darling boys had the best time at our friends and was truly spoilt as always, so a huge thank you to them x.

I think it’s so important to wear something you feel and look comfy in! If its going to be a long day always remember this , don’t wear anything to tight or clingy that you will constantly be pulling down or fidgeting with! Remember weddings , party’s are an excuse to wear something you don’t wear every day! That’s why i always go way out!

Speaking of Vintage, yesterday we dined at Pier Luiges in Beckenham.  It was very yummy as usual!  I wore a vintage Karen Millen skirt! It was actually a dress but i had it made into a skirt!

I have had this since i was about 21 and its still going strong! Boys are wearing (tops and shorts by Next , although the shorts were actually school trousers and i had them made into shorts as i couldn’t find any i liked and i like the cut of the next trousers,so don’t be put off if you cant find anything you like , make it your own)
Such beautiful colours, i just love it!

As my looks are vintage i have had a nose to try and find you some similar looks from the high street….

I found some cute sequin skirts by ASOS

So pretty, just love both!

I thought this dress by Vesper247 had a real Versace look about it too…


With Winter on its way i have also spotted some great new looks for you from ASOS


Rainbow Jumper, i think this is wonderful!
Love Love Love, i had a pair like this from Shellys years ago!
This has my name all over it! Love!
Get the Chanel look with this little number, pair this with a white fur for that runway style!
i ordered this in Cream, unfortunately if you have few lumps and bumps its not the most flattering and did nothing for me at all!

So guys short a sweet today.  I need to go a get the boys now and head off to the post office!

Have a wonderful Monday

My next post will be my holiday blog when i return from Barbados. Be sure to check that out !





Just call me Krystle



I hope your all having a wonderful end to the summer holidays, is it me or has it flown by? I cant believe this time next week I will be getting the boys bits ready for back to school!

We have had a wonderful summer, we have caught up with lots of my lovely friends and chilled out in the sun. We were  at the coast at my parents over the weekend and the boys spent an hour in the sea on Sunday, it was like being abroad! Its so hot today I’m melting as im doing this blog , but loving it too!

Is anyone else thinking  about autumn and their winter wardrobe? Well I am and absolutely all over this 80/90’s come back! The Dynasty look is back and im loving it.  Its all puff , sleeves, over sized belts, earrings , chain belts you name it, if its ” OTT” then I’m on it! I even raided mums loft at the weekend to see what goodies I could find, when we lived in Spain , my mum had some amazing clothes and i was hoping to get my hands on some of them 😂😍

Claudia Schiffer looking chic in the 90s.
The 90s is back and i love it!


Im all over the puff sleeve look, I think this look is super chic and super stylish! Any woman who wears a Puff Sleeve will just feel so feminine I promise that!

I have spotted some fab high street looks for you, shown below….

Silk Fred:

I absolutely love this , so beautiful! Look at those sleeves Alexis Carrington eat your heart out!
Another gorgeous look by Silk Fred and you could wear this all year round , I think this would look especially divine with leather trousers!


So beautiful, this would look fantastic with jeans or white shorts!
Or the stunning dress version!



ASOS does Zimmerman inspired so well! Love!
Going Chanel in this River Island top for ASOS

Zara also have gone for Zimmerman / Balmain looks for autumn and they are brilliant! I do love Zara but sometimes i begrudge buying as everyone walks around in the same clothes. I did however purchase this wonderful leather dress, although i am putting my own stamp on it of course!


Im going to change the neckline on it, as its so gorgeous and so soft!

Another chic style this autumn are these magnificent shoes by Prestige Boutique.

Wearing my New PB heels with these cute leather shorts by ASOS!
A real spice for your winter wardrobe with a real designer look!

Lets move on to accessories.  I have chosen my three favorites that we have to order to show you.

Shells , Pearls and Number 5 😍.

Shells are the look of the moment and im all over this set!

Order today

If Pearls are your thing , look at these stylish headbands.

Available to Order
Loving these earrings too , a real Chanel vibe!

So ladies , remember this autumn its all “OTT” So ” GO BIG” with all your looks!

I will keep you guided along the way and carry on sharing my best looks by Prestige Boutique and all my favorite brands!

Happy Shopping!  I’m cooking a roast dinner as we speak, yes i think im crazy too as its 32  here today but, I brought a wonderful Rib of Beef and it cant go waste lol!

Happy Tuesday




Spain 2019💃


Good Evening

How are we all?

So are you all broken up already for the summer? We had a very busy last week at our school! As it was Lucca’s last year at his school, it was very emotional on all of us!

He certainly ended on a high too taking home two awards at Prize Giving, even my Sonny Bunny got an Effort award! We flew off to Spain a very proud family!

I did try a keep you all updated as much as I could on holiday on Instagram and I really hope you enjoyed all my holiday spam! For those who missed it I have two circles on highlights!

We set off early hours  on the Saturday morning and  after more celebrating on the Friday night with friends with heavy heads and feeling very tired! Lucca threw up on the plane, I think the heavy emotional week at school took its toll on him too!

My lovely dad was there to meet us at Malaga and we set off to the apartment and ready to hit the pool! Needed by all I must say!

And my new IT suitcase was a real hit , I loved using it….

All the boys feel asleep after a long swim, Mr O is not a fan of the early bird flights apparently , I love it you get the whole day then! So that night we stayed local and walked round to a little Pizza place called Marios.

Outfit 1:

So I wanted to keep it cool and breezy so I opted for a Orange off shoulder  midi dress By Prestige Boutique { I will confess before any messages start rolling in , that I wore PB every night as I loved them so much! I did have other brands with me but only wore one by Aspiga Beach}

We are all wearing Prestige Boutique Such an easy dress to wear , I do love an off the shoulder number on holiday too!

I think it was a well deserved break and the next day all we did was hit the pool and lay like broccoli 🙌

One item that has been very popular this summer is our beach bags and I used mine everyday ….

Our inspired beach bags selling like hot cakes , and I can see why ! Super chic and stylish!

The second night we stayed local again and decided to try a new beach bar that’s called Barraka , it wasn’t one I would rush back to but was very pleasant!

I was excited to wear my backless beach dress too….

All wearing Prestige Boutique

I will say I do advise once you unpack go through your holiday wardrobe and plan your outfits, especially if like me, washing your hair on holiday is a real pain! My hair can last 2 days before it needs to be sorted again, hence why the second night it was up . Hair with a backless dress always looks better up . I still stick to this plan on every holiday and it works well. Even if you just jot it down on your notes in your phone!

Aspiga Beach had kindly sent me a dress of theirs as a gift and I was super excited to wear it! What I love about Aspiga Beachwear how unique their styles are…

I even had to get a lift selfie!
Chic and sophisticated

That night as it was Mr O’s birthday it was our turn to wear our Lemon Dolce inspired looks, I have waited so long to wear this little number and it went down a treat. its now packed away safe all ready for Barbados

The boys tops I had especially made with the lemon material to match my dress!

So I always said I would stop the Matching Theme once the boys reach secondary school! And I will so in Barbados we are going out with a bang! Maybe on one off special occasions I might have to do it , but October will be my last Matching session 😪 . To be honest they never moan about doing pictures or wearing their little outfits so I guess that’s why it has gone on for so long and they have been little Gems.

Back to our Lemon Look.. My dress is by PB , the boys tops are Marks & Spencer, i just had my tailor attach the material to the pockets for me, which i have done on other outfits too!

I had these tops made for Barbados last year in the same material as my dress!

As it was Mr O’s birthday we went to a wonderful restaurant called El Carnicerio if you like your steak you will love this one just up near cancellada

We manged to walk over here too which was even better! A little tip for this one, if you pay cash you will get a free bottle of wine!
My dress avalabile to order now

If there is one night i love about my holiday its The Fiesta Del Carmen and we go every year to the Puerto Banus celebration, As my parents were heading home the next day we made this their last night celebration.

We dined at La Bocana which is prime position for the mouth of the harbor to watch all the boats coming in and out

La Bocana
This picture does not do this justice { to watch my live highlights head to my Instagram  page to watch Marbs 19,  1 and 2 }

What did i wear you ask? Well we wore another Dolce inspired number

Another night another PB number teamed with Zara shoes on me and boys have Pisamonas loafers on!

We finished off our night at Villa Padierna Beach Club for farewell drinks

I wish we had had more nights as this would have definitely  been one of my choices to go for a meal and they have a fab kids menu too!


So swimwear this season for me is all about swimsuits one pieces and high waisted bikini’s

I’m all over these inspired swimsuits right now, especially this one which is also available in blue!
If Zebra print is more your thing then this one is super glam and super feminine!
No words needed this is my favorite
And i saved it for my last day!

All swimwear is available to order now!

After a day in the sun relaxing , We asked the children where was the one place they wanted to go to eat , Nanna & Poppa had gone home so it was time to head out on our own, right opposite Mum & Dads place is the best Japanese restaurant , so this was to be our next treat to be.

I opted for hearts , i had waited a while to wear this dress so it had to be done especially now the tan was kicking in so the vibrant red colour was sure to stand out on us all…

I loved wearing this beaut by PB shoes too! Boys wearing Polo Ralph Lauren and Pisamonas
My little loves!

Our holiday was coming to end thick and fast which meant taking in every bit of sun we could get , you may have noticed on our holidays we don’t do much accept , sun worship all day and socialize all night! That’s a holiday though right 😂😎

We are not ones for having days out here and there , i think if you have busy life’s back home which we both do then its nice to do NOTHING!

It was fresh fish for lunch and time to chill by the pool , i think the boys were quite tired as both decided to have a little power nap in the sun, our usual routine that i have stuck to since day dot on holiday still works like a charm , i have shared this so many times on here and Instagram , but i still get asked on Instagram about and i still think it works like a charm! Nothing worse than going out stressed!

The routine lol

We headed out to Laguna Village

Laguna Village

We thought we would head out early and have some drinks before deciding where to eat that night, i love just sitting and people watching

I wore a white bandeau dress and boys had white tops on by PB too

My go to dress on holiday is always a little white number and this is super stylish and chic, white always looks so crisp with a tan too!

We had drinks at Puro Beach

Puro Beach at Laguna Village

And we all matched the décor too 😂

Puro Beach

Then we headed back to Da Marios for Veal Millanese the boys favorite meal right now!

Last full day was upon us , it was fun and games in the pool and lots of sun worshiping for mummy!  We have spoken about moving to Spain for a while and the children are on board too . I grew up in Spain and it really is the best life! I really want Sonny to finish his school he is at right now so once that’s done i think it might be an option , so Sonny thought he would take a look at some property that day 😂

Someone is ready to go!

For our last night it was back to El Carcinero in Cancellada

I wore my PB white Floral dress and teamed the boys in matching green a real deep striking colour

You may have noticed we had a similar attire on last year on our last night too lol!

We always say the the boys we like them to spend at least 30-40 mins talking to us about their day before heading on the I pads so we had lots of fun talking about our holiday which sadly had now come to an end!

Farewell shots { the boys was not alcoholic }

The next day Mr O took the boys off my hands so i could pack and clean the apartment for mum, so they headed down to the pool , i did manage to get 10 min walk on the front in my new dress and a quick Rose!

This is such a cute dress, and perfect for the beach or a girly lunch on holiday!

So its OUR THING to head to Puerto Banus on our last day its something we have always done even before the boys came along and we always go to La Pappardella

La Pappaerdella Puerto Banus, if you like food and people watching , then this is your place!

The perfect restaurant to take in the last few hours of your holiday and the food is to die for, always check your bill in this restaurant though!! Something that we have always done since i lived in Spain at this restaurant , sometimes i think as your English you are not on the ball and have added things on the bill before … !

Another thing i always have to do is treat the boys in NECK&NECK , considering this year is my last for matchy matchy i had to get a couple of bits for them, watch out Barbados we are ready for you!


We arrived at Malaga Airport early which is unheard for us only to be told we was delayed , so we quickly found a quite spot and chilled with a cold beverage!

After finally boarding an hour after we were meant to, it was time to say Adios Espana!

And that’s a wrap!

For anyone wanting to order any of my outfits shown today please contact me on Instagram!

I’m now off to do mummy duties, so take care and thanks for reading

Happy Tuesday










Whats a Girl to do?


How are we all?

So with the holiday fast approaching I’m thinking I’m actually a lot more organised  than I am this time ( not in my head or on paper ) but in the way that the cases look like they have fallen off a lorry!

Since Prestige Boutique came along my time  just flies ( before messages start rolling in , I’m not complaining , I  love it , every minute of it in fact )

What I love about what I do is Instagram and all the wonderful ladies I get to meet and talk too!

Everyone who takes the time to do Giveaways and Promote my page is just so wonderful, I have made some lovely friends.

If you don’t follow then these ladies are a must:

Carole M beauty , Elizas-Everyday, and StripyCoral { there are lots more of you but I cant name you all I will be here all day}

My time is taken up a lot with what I do although some people still think I do nothing!

One lady that I love talking to too is Kat Farmer ( if you don’t follow her which I’m sure by now you do ) anyway this lady wore one of our dresses at the weekend and I have to say , Kat looked totally amazing and striking! So Thankyou Kat for sharing. Totally rocking our Rainbow dress!

Thankyou Kat for sharing our dress you look amazing! Follow Doesmybumlookbigat40 now x


This year I have been sent some wonderful items that I will be storing and picturing on my grid so you must keep and eye out for those beauties on my holiday , you will love !

Especially Aspiga,  that’s a beautiful dress which I have been waiting so long to wear and I finally get to wear it , plus I have am amazing kaftan too!

The boys also have some Prestige Boutique bits to wear and we will be matching! There is one particular dress I cant wait to wear as the boys have got matching tops too { I have had these especially made}

I have been going back and forth on outfits and I’m not very clear on what I want to take, I need to have it all done really by next week as the boys have so many things on at school . We fly 6am the day after they break up! Seemed a good idea at the time ha!

A couple of new looks for you , as some of you are not Instagram I do like to keep you up to date too! { sorry if I bore the ones that are }

Starting with this dress I wore to Due Amici last week…

I loved wearing this one! So chic!

Before hand I met up with the girls at The Manor and I wore my new Gina Maxi…

Our Gina dress has a real Gucci vibe about it too, I chose to wear the belt as a ribbon in my hair! After all it is all the rage right now!

If its some chic summer styles then these two below are so easy and so easy to throw in the suitcase to go away….

Sometimes I can be weary of these style dresses as they can tend to give you that pregnant look ha! I chose to wear our lemon headband set to really set that look alive!

Hands up who else loves polkas? If like me you do then this one is for you!


Another thing I have started today is the NOSH Juice Fast , I went for the two day one! I have this terrible cold, cough sore throat etc! So it came at the right time and plus its always nice to lose a few pounds before I hit the pool!

I think the two day fast for me is best as I do like my food and don’t think I can hold off for too much longer ha! I especially love the fact that this program comes with a little booklet on what to do if you feel like giving up!

Loads more programs available so check out the NOSH website today and if you say my name DANIELLA from EYEZONZANELLI you will receive 15% off your first order ! NOTE: You have to email them before you place your order to get this promotion from me!

So my Lucca is in France this week , we have no communication with them which is hard. I’m sure they are having a ball though! From what I have seen , all they are doing is eating,  ha!

So I’m now off to post some of your goodies going out and get my little Sonny Bunny !

Have a wonderful week and I will try a squeeze a quick blog post in before I go especially on the denim dress I’m going to wear at the weekend . That baby needs a blog post to its self 💙💙💙

Happy Tuesday
