Travel | Dominican Republic Photo Diary

Miss Tunica Perissa Crystal White Tunic Beach Hut Palm Roof

Just before Christmas I was lucky enough to escape the 10 day freeze we had here in the UK and jet off to the amazing Dominican Republic, coincidentally for 10 days, and it didn't disappoint. I was greeted by rum cocktails, the gentle sway of palm trees and 30 degree heat and had the most amazing time.

Now call me a creature of habit but we decided to go back to the same resort that we had visited in 2015 because we wanted an easy destination where we could relax and de-stress. It was more of a holiday for some much needed rest and relaxation than one for new adventures. We stayed at the 5* resort of the Grand Palladium, Punta Cana and it was just as good, if not better, than last time we stayed.

Now this gorgeous polka dot baby was one of my favourite items that I wore whilst away. I bought it from Shein last summer for a absolute steal at £12.02. It's still actually available on the site too, here. Now it's a bit short, read skims the bum and i'm only petite, but it made an amazing beach dress and the ruffles made me feel super sassy.

Now I have to say I'm very tempted to get a hammock for back here in the UK. Having one of these treats to hand most days was insane, they are super comfortable, when you're not falling out of them. I could have read my book for hours on end just lazing in the sun.

This gorgeous kaftan was sent to me by Miss Tunica before I went away and it's another piece from my holiday wardrobe that I loved wearing. It was the perfect length for me and offered some cover from the caribbean sun. The sleeves and neckline have a gorgeous bronze detailing too which actually helped to give the appearance of some boobs while being classy. It also has a white slip dress which can be put under the tunic to go from day to night and save on some packing! I've already been back on the Miss Tunica website eyeing up what colour I want to get next.

Now if you're visiting the Dominican there are so many amazing activities you can do, or like me you can indulge in a little luxury relaxation. Saona island is divine with crystal clear waters and the ability to snorkel and find starfish as big as your head or there are jungle treks for the more adventurous. 

Here's to my next trip abroad which is skiing in February which will be totally different. The snow in Tignes is currently insane. Make sure to follow me on Bloglovin', Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest to stay up to date with my adventures.
