It Is All About Eve...

With only 30 days and counting until our much anticipated holiday to Barbados, we're in turbo-planning mode from here on out! We've got a lot to get sorted don't you know... from carefully selecting our restaurants of choice for the two week food fest, to the rigorous pre-beach body conditioning prep to planning our all-important day and night time holiday-fabulous attire!



We've pretty much got our foodie itinerary locked down with seaview and open-air terrace tables bagsied and our fitness and body buffing routine is in full swing! So that just leaves two weeks' worth of outfits to plan, purchase and pack - the 3 P's! 

So first thing's first - lets get our killer swimwear sorted! I struggle every year when it comes to finding flattering bikinis that fit like a glove and don't dig in accentuating the sorely lacking perfect beach bods we'd rather forget we didn't have. Past favourites include Seafolly, Insight and then cheap, cheerful and trusty triangle separates from Topshop and H&M. My major dislike when it comes to swimwear is forking out serious dosh for a scrap of fabric that then fades and stretches after a few beach visits - we've all experienced the baggy beach bum effect right?! Not cool! So this year I intend to seek out bikinis that look good AND last longer that a holiday fling... I have a good feeling about a brand I've recently found which goes by the name of All About Eve - an Aussie label that sells swimwear and clothing all boasting a boho, festival fun feel. Lots of bright colour, fierce fabrics and unusual styles that will be sure to get you noticed...






The fab PR at All About Eve was kind enough to send me through a few styles to rock on the white sands whilst we're away next month - a tropicana-tastic triangle design and a monochrome set with a lime green flash of cheekiness! I was also treated to a cuter than cute black & white sundress with a gorgeous low strappy back - the perfect daytime bikini cover-up... And, cinch in with a belt and add a slick of lipgloss and bam you've got a cocktails at sunset look... Here's a sneak preview of the bikini sets now but stay tuned for on-beach style snaps when I return hopefully a bronzed Barbados beach beauty, minus the baggy bum!
