Affordable Occasionwear

Dressing up for special occasions is one of my favourite thing to do. I know it sounds boring but I do love a good sparkly dress and doing my hair all fancy. I mentioned in a post a couple of days ago how I'm heading to the races next month and I'm already planning my outfit!
I came across a website called Victoria's Dress which sell incredibly gorgeous dresses for weddings, prom's and all sort of occasions. They even have a fab section of Wedding Dresses and most of them are under £150 which is amazing!
If you're looking for a very fancy dress for a formal occasion then this is great place as even the selection of Prom dresses and Occasion dresses are super affordable considering your getting a gorgeous floor length gown! I've fallen in love with most of the website as I'm a total girl and love anything with a bit of sparkle. Here's a few of my favourites! 



My prom dress was black and quite plain and sometimes I wish I'd gone for something more spectacular. I think If I could do it again I'd choose something like the third one above as It's just gorgeous - It also has amazing back feature!
Defiantly check out Victoria's Dress out if you've got a big occasion coming up or just looking for a nice sparkly dress! 

*I was compensated for this feature*

Travel: Servigroup Pueblo Hotel, Benidorm

Last moth I spent 10 days in Benidorm, Spain. I thought I would do a little post on my Hotel which was the Servigroup's Pueblo Hotel. My family chose the hotel as it was in a central location to the "main strip". I'm not too sure been in all the action was a good thing as it seem to attract a lot of stag and hen parties to the hotel. 

So, back to the start! We arrived quite late evening and checked - in quickly and we were informed a cold buffet had been put on for guests arriving later. We didn't actually check it out but it was pretty good they did this for late comers.
 We had previously contacted the hotel about staying in the main building after hearing reviews on it being less noisy and more convenient. Aside from the main building they have little blocks of rooms. The reception knew about our request and put us on the second floor in the main building. 
The rooms were nice and tidy and the cleaners did a very thorough job each day. The rooms came with a TV which had BBC and ITV - I may have watched Jeremy Kyle once or twice ;) - There was also free Wi-Fi which was quite fast in the room, not so much in the pool area.

The view from our balcony was a little disappointing with it just been the roof of the restaurant but it was a good place to sunbathe though with most of the day in the sun. 
There was 2 large outdoor pools, an indoor pool and a children's pool with entertainment throughout the day with activities such as water aerobics and kids club games. There was always something happening and also in the evenings they had shows.

I didn't take any photo's of the food but it was good, we did eat out on a few occasions though. Although there was a theme of each night, it all seemed quite repetitive. I did get very excited over the Roast Beef, which was lovely.
The hotel was lovely on a whole but the only downside was having a lot of rowdy stag and hen groups around!

Ladies Day at The Races with Quiz Clothing

Every year I go to Ladies Day at York Races during the Ebor Festival. It's bang in the middle of Summer and always a great excuse to dress up. I always spend a lot of time thinking about the perfect outfit for the day.
Quiz Clothing has some beautiful dresses in at the moment and I thought I would put together a few of my favourites which would be great for a day at the races.

Maxi Dresses always work well at the races. Quiz has a great selection including some gorgeous pastel ones which immediately caught my eye. These would also be perfect for a wedding or prom!

Printed Dresses are so popular right now especially tropical prints. I love the first dress as the cut is so unique and would look amazing with fancy facinator. I'm also loving the bardot neckline and had to include these two which are so pretty!

A quick sidenote but Quiz Clothing has a really cool feature on their website called the fitting room where you can pair you choices with bags and shoes on models!
Let me know which is your favourite dress above? and also if you're going to the races this summer!
