Blonde Nation




















#BlondeNation

This post is dedicated to my love of all things blonde. I have been every hair color from jet black, chocolate brown, ombre and my natural color....RED! Yes, I am a ginger ninja. And I have been bleaching my hair to get every last ray of ginge from my scalp. I remember when I was a kid and a teenager, I would always get compliments from women and female teachers 'you hair color is so beautiful'. FACT- you want compliments from boys when you are 15 not from old women...so the journey and the death of my hair began. 
I love being blonde...but I am always searching for the perfect shade. My blonde inspirations would have to be Aussie model Jennifer Hawkins and the beautiful Blake Lively. Sometimes my hair goes too platinum so I go to the hair dresser and get a head of caramel brown lowlights. I have tried ash blonde, but with my complexion I think warmer and sandy tones suit me better. 
I love the blonde bombshell look Im not going to lie. Anybody who knows me will say that I am vain, an attention seeker and confident....and that is dam right. I have a blog based entirely on myself...that pretty much sums up my ego ;) So being a blonde just suits my personality at the moment. I will eventually grow up and stop partying but for now being a blonde is too much fun!

B&W Korcula


Jacket, Tank Top and camera case: Primark, Shorts: Zara, Sunglasses: Ray Ban

I don't normally do entire blog post in black and white, but with my hangover and the overcast weather it only seems fitting that Korcula is in greyscale. We went out the previous night in Split (Club Tropic)... and my sister and I ended up dancing until the sun came up, literally! We were dancing and splashing around in Bacvice Beach at 5am, it was a memory I will never forget. Well maybe, it was a little hazy due to the many many drinks I consumed! 

We spent the afternoon on the beautiful island of Korcula which is made up of a old fortress that surrounds most of the island. Korcula is most known for being the old stomping grounds of the explorer Marco Polo. So most of our walking tour was based around where he lived and....and...and to be honest I don't remember a whole lot what the tour guide said! (Fragile state of mind at the time) But the good news is, after dinner we went shopping and my Dad bought us each a handbag! I got a fabulous 'celine-esque' red tote bag...thanks parentals!

I first fell in love with Split when I fell in love with a boy from Split five years ago. The relationship may have ended but my love for this city and this country only grew stronger! I am thankful that he was able to share his beautiful country with me, and now I am sharing it with my parents a few years later. 
The city has changed a fair bit since I first visited, I had forgotten how big it was! It has become a major tourist destination and it doesn't matter what day of the week it is or what time of the day it is, the city is packed and buzzing. 

In regards to the fashion- that has also changed! From what I remember everyone was always dressed up and the girls were so glamorous (ALWAYS in heels....even for a cup of coffee!) Nowadays, it is very casual with denim shorts and white converse shoes seeming to be the common trend. But I still managed to meet up with the most gorgeous and glamorous girl from Split, a friend I made when I first visited. Her name is Antonija and she makes the most beautiful custom jewelry! They are all handmade and one off pieces, you can check out her collection here! 

We did a walking tour of the city which was insightful, as I didn't know a whole lot about the history of Split apart from the fact that it was a roman emperors palace. After the tour, we went shopping in the main street. I picked up a great two-piece print skirt and top for work from Zara. After that we sat by the sea and drank cocktails in the newly made 'west end' marina. 

For the night we headed to club Tropic, were we had an epic night dancing away and then ended up splashing around in the sea as the sun came up. It was a magical end to our time in Split!
