Colonia del Sacremento - Uruguay

Hello, i'm back. We had such a fantastic trip, it was a busy few weeks, three countries, three, currencies, two languages, endless passport stamping, beautiful cities and relaxing towns.

I have so many photos so the next few posts will be very photo heavy before I resume the usual posts.

Thanks so much for the comments on my scheduled posts whilst I was away, i'll be replying to any questions soon.

First up was Colonia del Sacremento, a stunningly pretty world heritage town on the River Plate, cobbled streets with vintage cars, cute cafes and I think I should let the photos do the rest of the talking!

Blog im loving

This blog is straight from the streets of Brooklyn hence the name Brooklyn Blonde. Helena's style is easy and a very similar kind of style i'd go for I think. I love the neutral colours she wears with little pops of colour here and there.

Style steal

Photobucket

Really popular all over blogland, the YSL arty rings are shining on so many peoples fingers. The price tags are around £150 which is pretty steep considering they aren't even real silver or gold although I still want one despite this....!!

 

I came across these rings and thought YSL immediately and although they aren't a blatent copy you can see the influence behind them and what a steal too. You can buy them here Bimba&Lola

Todays deal is fashion related so I thought you might want to know about it ,a £20 voucher for just £9 at ASOS!

You can buy one for yourself and one other as a gift, I imagine you can only use one per transaction.

Here's a few things i'd spend my voucher on.....
