Beach Basics

July 31, 2017

Hi guys,

I hope you all had a lovely weekend. It’s been a PRETTY good one here in the Seychelles. It’s one of those places where you have to continuously pinch yourself to remind yourself where you are.

We checked out of our first hotel, the stunning Le Meridien Fisherman’s Cove hotel today, and we have checked into our new hotel which we booked so last minute on hotwire.com (as usual) – the Savoy Spa Hotel and Resort. We got such a good deal on this hotel at €165 a night – I swear by Hotwire.com! 

Tomorrow we have an exciting day of exploring planned. The Seychelles are made up of 3 main islands: Mahé, Praslin & La Digue. We are staying on Mahé, and that’s where the airport is. We will head to Praslin tomorrow to visit Vallée de Mai – the beautiful UNESCO World Heritage Site and the most photographed beach in the world Anze Lazio. After Praslin, we will head to the 3rd island, La Digue, where ‘Cast Away’ with Tom Hanks was filmed – and I’ve heard by EVERYONE is the most beautiful island of them all. I’m so excited.

There will be lots of snaps (username: lou1409) and Instagrams of course, and I’m vlogging this whole trip too!

My whole outfit here was shot on the grounds of the gorgeous Le Meridien Fisherman’s Cove hotel and I’m wearing all Primark, with beautiful earrings from the new Irish brand Taylor and Rose. Yellow is my colour at the moment. I literally picked up 5 yellow tops in Penneys the same day I picked up this outfit, as you can see in my haul. So expect to see a lot more of it 🙂

Have a great week

Lou x

    Louise- this post was sponsored by Primark then you also need to #sp on your snapchat and Instagram when showing the clothes. You’re one of the worst for not disclosing ad and I’ll be reporting your snapchat to ASAI.

      Hi Luna

      Sorry for the confusion, I used the hashtag #iworkwithprimark on those posts as that is Primark’s new ASAI approved hashtag for when they are working with bloggers.

      Hope this clears everything up,

        You used nothing on Snapchat though, which is the one I have the issue with.

          I only said where my outfit was from in passing, as well as my earrings which were from another shop. I didn’t write out Penneys and it wasn’t part of the collaboration with them.

          I just wanted to tell people as usually when I snap wearing something someone will ask where it’s from.

          I made it clear I was working with them across all of the channels where I really showcased the outfit. I wasn’t trying to pull the wool over anyone’s eyes. I’m sorry it came across this way and I’ll bare it in mind for future.

    I love the outfit and especially your hair and earrings! I don´t really buy clothes in primark, because I don´t find them that high quality, but to be honest I like this top and the jean shorts! 🙂 Great 🙂

    Hi Louise,

    Have you considered the implication promoting Penny’s has ethically and environmentally? Penny’s and other high street brands that you promote use what is essentially slave labour (it’s predominantly young girls in Bangladesh who make their clothes who work in terrible factory conditions-long hours, few breaks, for less than 50 euros a month thus being forced to live below the poverty line). Also, the farmers in India that produce the cotton for these items are also treated incredible badly and work in horrific conditions, so bad in fact, that it is estimated a farmer commits suicide there every 3 minutes. Also, the dye that is being used in these garment contain horrible chemicals that cause skin diseases and cancer to the people that dye these clothes and the chemical filled water is then allowed run, untreated into rivers thus causing the thousands of other innocent people and children to contract the same horrific skin diseases and cancers. There are whole villages where a large percentage of their population are born with serious physical and mental deformities as a direct consequence of this. And after all of this-the ruination of innocent lives and children’s lives; the clothes they produced are of such terrible quality (and were so cheap, the buyer doesn’t care) that after no length at all they end up in a landfill which further pollutes the environment and STILL causes cancers and skin diseases to the people who live close to these landfills and are so poor they need to rummage through them or sort through these to see whats fit for charity and whats only fit for the dump, because of the toxic chemicals they omit. I urge you to please watch The True Cost, a really interesting documentary on the side effects of fast fashion and how fast fashion is destroying the environment and the loves of innocent people who produce it and please consider distancing yourself from these unethical, immoral brands. I’m sure you had no idea of the horrible consequences of promoting these brands. i look forward to hearing your thoughts on The True Cost!! You are so beautiful and have such great style and are a massive influence, please consider using your profile in an positive, ethical way!
