Hello all – this is my third collaboration with Femme Luxe, this time I’ve opted for choosing rather elegant items that also stand out. As I usually say in my hauls, Femme Luxe tends to look a bit (much) slinky but there are a few things that are actually pretty classy if you know how to look for them. I think this is my favourite Femme Luxe haul so far as everything I got is absolutely stunning. Take some searching but there’s definitely good stuff there.
Make sure you follow my 21buttons account as I post all of my outfits there, these included!
The first item and the star item of this haul is the White Mesh Polka Dot Extreme Ballon Sleeve Top. Needless to say this top caught everyone’s attention and I got endless compliments from it as I walked in it across London. Please note it’s totally see-through so you can wear with a nice bra directly or use a white or nude shirt below. It’s a definite statement item so best to style with something simple below, like black skinny trousers and black boots. It’s a great item to spice up a winter look. Quality seemed pretty good to me as well. This blouse was born to stand out.
Next up is also a top, similar to the polka dot blouse but a completely white one and with smaller sleeves. The White Polka Dot Mesh High Neck Top – Claudia is also a stunner and looks pretty classic when styled correctly. I didn’t like how the model is wearing it with a square string top as it makes it look tacky, I wore it with a white long sleeve t-shirt, nude trousers and a hat for a more sophisticated look, and loved the result. I could easily also wear this one for work while the White Mesh Polka Dot Extreme Ballon Sleeve Top one is a little bit too extra and could possibly affect my productivity if too many people are asking where I got it, lol.
Aveiro is one of the cities I visited between Lisbon and Porto in my 8 day trip around Portugal. Aveiro is a very beautiful city with enough things to do for a full day. I stayed in Aveiro for one day and two nights but one day and one night would have worked as well. You can also visit it as a day trip from Porto via a tour like this one here. See all things to do, where to stay and how to get to and around Aveiro in this post.
Aveiro Travel Guide: The Best Things To Do In Aveiro
Visit the cute striped sea side houses at Costa Nova
Ok, I’ll admit that this was the reason I visited Aveiro. And it was Instagram heaven as I expected. These striped houses by the beach make the freshest photos ever. An important thing to note is that Costa Nova is not in Aveiro but getting to it is very easy either by car or local bus.
Hi there, old sport, are you up for a night of lovely food, dressing up, dancing and theatre? Then you’ll love Immersive Gatsby!
Immersive Gatsby is a theatrical immersive experience based on Scott’s Fitzgerald novel ‘The Great Gatsby’. If you haven’t seen the movie or read the book, I encourage you to do so before visiting. It will be more fun to be able to relate the characters to what you know. If I have to be honest, I did not know what to expect of this evening but as an immersive experience lover I knew I had to live it.
If you are reading this it’s because you are seriously considering crossing the pond just to enter the magical world of Disneyland in it’s European version. No one is ever too old for Disneyland. Not only that — I personally believe it is actually healthy for all of us to visit every now and then. I’ve been to Disneyland Paris from London three times already and as soon as I leave I already want to go back again. It’s actually very easy to do — so let’s dive in.
Disneyland Paris From London: How Long To Visit
Disneyland Paris has two parks: Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios Park. If you have been to Disney World, Disneyland Park is the equivalent to the Magic Kingdom Park and Walt Disney Studios Park to Hollywood Studios.
It is totally possible to visit both Disneyland Paris parks in a weekend if you are coming from London, it is also possible to visit both Disneyland Paris parks in just one day leaving Sunday free to visit Paris a bit and to go back home to London. I have done that in three occasions and left feeling satisfied. I was able to visit all the adult friendly rides this way and some kid friendly ones that seemed fun.
