It's all about the sleeve



Need an eye catching dress? Why not opt for an over the top sleeve? This Zara beauty has that dramatic sleeve element you are looking for.
I opted to style it in a very classic way, so the sleeve really jumps out! The only thing I added was a colorfull statement necklace, to give it that little extra "oomph". Off course you can dress it up or down the way you'd like to.

Alicante

For those who follow me on Instagram already now that I took a short fall/winter break to Alicante. We needed some extra sun and we got it, think 28 degrees in October! Who wouldn’t sign for that?
The, four star, Ac Alicante by Marriott hotel was our "home" for the next couple of days and were not disappointed. This hotel was certainly value for money, it isn’t located in the center of Alicante, but that’s only a 5min walk.
The AC Alicante is a very modern hotel with all the facility’s you need: A rooftop swimming pool (where we spend most of our days sipping on the most delicious cocktails), a fitness area, Jacuzzi and Hamman, bar & restaurant. You can even rent bikes and discover Alicante by bike.
The rooms are spacious, very modern and clean. You’ll find everything you need during your stay.

Not to forget the staff who were super friendly and very helpful. We had never been to Alicante, and they told us all the places to see and to have dinner. Big thumbs up for everyone who worked at the AC hotel!

I'll stop rambeling about it. Pictures say more than words, you can discover the hotel yourself:

We had a warm welcome in our room with fresh fruit and a small bottle of Cava

The hotel also recommended restaurant TERRE for dinner, and if you are into a design restaurant this is definitely the place to go in Alicante.

A real vibrant atmosphere and very nice food and drinks! I opted for a Rossini (Champagne cocktail with fresh fruit) and some Ham Croquettes as starter. Followed by a Chickenburger and Grilled vegetables. As dessert I went for the reconstructed Lemon Pie (OMG I could eat 10 of those!) and Silvie for the 3-way Chocolate dessert.  
 
 

 
 


  
If I ever return to Alicante, I will definitely re-book the AC by Marriott hotel.
Have you ever been to Alicante? Where did you stay?

THIS WORKS PERFECT LEGS SKIN MIRACLE



As you’ve read in one of my previous posts I suffer from Keratosis Pilaris (KP). The Paula’s Choice exfoliator works for me and I thought that it was time to give my legs a little bit more TLC ! I never really “cared” for my legs, as the KP mostly bothered me, now that’s improving it’s time for a change! I ordered the THIS WORKS PERFECT LEGS SKIN MIRACLE” on LookFantastic because it promises to enhance my legs even more.

According to This Works:
 
Perfect legs skin miracle is a powerful serum with Vitamin C to perfect, repair and enhance.

MODERN: Instantly enhances legs and helps combat skin imperfections, skin discolorations and scars.
NATURAL: A powerful complex of Vitamin C and vitamin E to help even out skin tone and restructure the skin, while Arnica helps to fade bruising.
BEAUTY: Immediately transforms the skin with a sun-kissed glow
.

My verdict? IT REALLY WORKS!

The serum is easy to apply, dries very fast and isn’t sticky at all (luckily!). Personally I use a tanning mit to apply the serum to my legs, just to be extra sure that I don’t have any streaks on my legs. But you can just work with your hands and massage it in.

After applying the skin is very soft and there is a very SUBTLE tint (not orange) on your legs and a nice glow. Yes you’ve read it right it’s a subtle tint, this isn’t a tanning product after all. But I’m already happy if my legs have a hint of color, otherwise they are just way to pale to be seen ;-)

This isn’t a cheap product, it retails at €49,95 at Look Fantastic. If you really want your legs to be tanned I think you can find other (cheaper?) alternatives. But if you are, like me, looking for a product that will give you a subtle hint of color and will improve your skin, this is the one for you!

Will you give this a try?
