When the bed’s SO DAMN BIG you don’t know which side to sleep on 😍 Isn’t it a shame you can fit beds in your hand luggage? 🙊 Also these PJ’s are from @asos and possibly the cutest/comfiest things I have ever slept in.
Just hanging out in the front garden woods with the bluebells. Bluebells hold a special meaning to me and I love when they bloom, it’s even better to be able to see them from my bedroom window (just wish they lasted longer!) Also, how beautiful is this @chichiclothing dress? Definitely an option for a budget Wedding dress (if you like baby pink!) 💘 More photos over on the blog - laurabradshaw.co.uk
Pink hues in Corfu 🌸 It’s been a bit of an eventful day so tonight I plan on eating ice cream (My fave @benandjerrysuk Peanut Butter Cup is waiting in the freezer 🙌🏻) watching as much tv in my PJ’s as possible and writing up my Corfu blog post. The photos make me want to travel again so badly... look at those pink petals! 😍
I used to think the whole electric toothbrush thing was a fad... then I tried one and wow, my pearly whites feel so clean and look a lot whiter! I'd advise anyone to try one asap and this Oral B Pro 600 is my current go-to. It's affordable, quick and well.... makes me smile more! @oralb_uk #Brushlikeapro #ad

I have felt so inspired since returning home from my trip to Corfu. Travelling ignites something inside me and I so wish I could do it more often. Seeing new places, meeting new people and trying new things is good for the soul (and of course seeing the sunshine helps too!) If you want to see what outfits I wore & what I got upto on my trip, the vlog is live over on my YouTube channel. Direct link in my bio or swipe up on my stories to watch! 💚
Come see what I wore and what I got up to in Greece!! I stayed at the amazing Corfu Imperial Grecotel Exclusive Resort and has the best room I’ve EVER stayed in!
WARNING: I get very excited.... 😂🙈
You guys know I'm all about affordable fashion & this top was only £4.99.. can you guess where it's from?! None other than... @lidluk! It's the softest material and I love the simple neckline detailing, perfect for a neutral toned outfit like this one. It's only in stores for one week so make sure you pop by to check out the entire range 🧡 #LETSLOVESUMMER #LidlFashionWeek #AD
Isn't it amazing how refreshing a few days away in the sunshine can be? 🌞 I feel like a new Woman! I had time to read, enjoy the outdoors and float around in the beautiful warm sea. When it came to getting ready in the evenings, I kept it quick & simple which was such a lovely change to rushing around! Minimal makeup, a classic dress and of course my beautiful @theofficialpandora pieces. This necklace is perfect - goes with everything and brings a touch of colour, I like wearing it both long and wrapped around for a shorter look. My advice to you... if you're in need of a break, try and take one - it makes the world of difference! #DOPANDORA #Ad #PANDORAFestival
Can I stay here forever?! 😍 We visited one of the @grecotelcorfuimperial sister hotels by boat (!!) and I can confirm it’s just as photogenic. I could easily sit in this spot with an iced coffee every single day... but not sure I would ever get anything done, but who cares?! 🙊🌴 #GrecotelDaphnilaDassia (photo taken by @konstantinos_kastamonitis)
I have to be honest, waking up here today was a DREAM 😍! I’m staying at the @grecotelcorfuimperial and everything about it is amazing. My own pool, my own beach and the most beautiful villa. Keep an eye on my stories for more (all saved to my highlights incase you’ve missed it!) Feeling very lucky (and ecstatic, but also very warm... 😂) #GrecotelCorfuImperial #ExquisiteLuxury #invite ❤️
I’m going to Greece tomorrow for a few days with @grecotelcorfuimperial and have some things to discuss. Firstly, why is it harder to pack for a few days than it is a few weeks?! Is my oversized case too much for a long weekend? Probably. Is there anything I wish to remove? Nope. Also, why is it no matter how organised you are, you still leave it all ‘til the last minute?! 😂 Regardless of this, I’m excited for some sunshine and the chance to wear 99% of my Summer wardrobe 🌞
This Summer I've been trying my best to be a free spirit. Making sure I do what I feel like doing and never feeling guilty for it, which if you know me is a BIG change. Working from home can make this a challenge at times but there's something about the sun shining and escaping off into the great outdoors to take photos that just fills me with happiness and such a free sense of self, I need to feel like this more! Inspired by the new @theofficialpandora collection, which is perfect for this moment in my life and works so well with every outfit in my wardrobe. #DOPANDORA #Ad #PANDORAFestival 🧡
Does a girl ever have just ONE pair of favourite Summer shoes?! 🤔 It was a tough call but I’d say these are my faves right now. We have sandals for the hot days, loafers for the warm days and trainers for the rainy days. One might say I have every Weather situation covered... 😂🙌🏻Screen shot on the @liketoknow.it app for direct links! #liketkit http://liketk.it/2w0ux
See what I’ve been picking up for my holidays this year...
I’m just a girl, sitting on a tree.. asking @alotofbradshaw to buy me chocolate (this actually happens..) 🤷🏼♀️ I’ve had a weirdly unintentional instagram-grid break, I blame the bank holiday & fence painting. It’s nice to be back though... so hi, hope you’re well?! 😘 (screenshot on the @liketoknow.it app for outfit & makeup links) #liketkit http://liketk.it/2vXrb
This week I show you my new hair, what I picked up on ASOS, some new in blogger mail AND I lose my debit card!!!
Check out the vlog here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-e9Fmo3Qu38
This is my “feelin’ fancy” outfit 💁🏼♀️ The type of outfit you put on when you’re having a real great adulting day, when you just have your shizz together. However, today I left my debit card in the chip & pin machine in Tesco, so I think I’ll try the outfit again tomorrow and hope it works... 😂 Screenshot on the @liketoknow.it app to shop! http://liketk.it/2vTqm #liketkit
The Husband has just uploaded a new Wedding to his website, and I was the second shooter! Not sure if you guys know, but I love Photography (and have done most my life!) so I guess it's a good job I'm married to a Photographer... right?!
Make sure you give his page a like if you fancy seeing more beautiful Weddings like this ❤️ Chris Bradshaw Photography

What a weekend 😍 I loved sitting on the sofa watching the Royal Wedding, chilling with my Husband, eating MANY good buffet choices... however, de-weeding the garden? Not so much, but y’know.. life balance! Jumpsuit is from @asos & always feeling very extra in it 💁🏼♀️
A HUGE try-on haul featuring a new online store I'm OBSESSED with..

Today I went back to School and spoke to some lovely children about blogging (I was more nervous to talk to them than I was being interviewed on live TV 🙊) Anyway, I didn’t say anything bad and no one threw a tomato at me, so it’s all good 😂 They all asked me a question about blogging including what I didn’t like about it, which I found quite difficult to answer. I honestly love my job & what I get to do everyday. Writing, creating and just being able to be myself. So grateful 🙌🏻
NEW BLOG POST!!
I’m talking about how I feel like I’ve grown out of alcohol and it doesn’t necessarily make me a party pooper.
It features some photos from this Vintage shoot which I just love. I worked with an AMAZING team of creatives on this one ❤️

Just pressed publish on a blog post talking all about how just because I’ve realised I’ve kinda grown out of alcohol (a bit) it doesn’t make me a party pooper. You can read it by clicking the link in my bio or swiping up on the stories ❤️ It features this set of photos that I just love. I worked with such an amazing, fun, happy team on some beautiful vintage trains and the outcome is one of my favourites!
ONE YEAR! It’s crazy how people meet their soulmates simply by chance... one little decision in your day can change your life forever. I knew @alotofbradshaw was the one as soon as he made me belly laugh for the first time, and he hasn’t stopped making me laugh since. I feel so lucky to have found him - he makes everyday worthwhile ❤️ #pottshawwedding
There’s a new video over on my YouTube channel! Today I’m showing you some Summer pieces I picked up from ASOS AND how you can win some goodies in my 70,000 subscriber giveaway!!!

I’ve wrote about 10 captions and deleted them because I’m sat watching trash TV and my mind is mush 🤪 But what I’m trying to say is that I’m really enjoying a pop of yellow in my wardrobe right now, so this @boohoo top was an obvious choice! (See more beaut pieces in my BooHoo haul over on YouTube channel, link is in my bio) @liketoknow.it #liketkit http://liketk.it/2vHNm 💛🌻
Hey, just me... frolicking around in a buttercup field, secretly wondering if snakes live in these lands... 🤗 I’m loving navy right now, so I paired my magical @zara trousers with my stripey @next jumper and it’s a very happy outfit (screenshot this photo & use the Like To Know It app to shop it!) Also, it’s so much fun now that the Husband @alotofbradshaw has gone full-time with his photography... daily shots like this after a casual latte date? YAS PLZ! 😂🙌🏻 (if you’re getting married, check him out!) #liketkit @liketoknow.it http://liketk.it/2vGVS
A bank holiday boohoo.com haul, featuring some amazing Summer dresses and a few risky pieces, of course!!

Yellow & polkadots - my current obsession. If they were a couple, they’d be a match made in heaven 🙊 In other news, just uploaded a big bank holiday @boohoo haul over on lè YouTube channel. Featuring some pretty Summer dresses (including this one) & a few risky items, of course 🤗 Link is in my bio/stories if you fancy a watch... 💛
I love the idea of this @pinkparcel subscription box - it's for that time of the month when you need and deserve some TLC and a little extra pampering. With separate compartments containing all the monthly essentials split into now, later and nighttime, it makes things super easy. The treat section is my favourite (of course!) and in Aprils box there was chocolate (YES 👏🏻) calming teabags and everything you need for a nice relaxing bath... dreamy! 💕 AD
Finallyyy had the chance to wear this skirt (yes I do have it in red too 😂🙈) It’s perfect for sunny weekends. I’ll admit I’m not usually a fitted skirt kinda girl but I instantly loved the fit & shape of this one. The slight kickflare makes it super flattering and you’ll be pleased to know I had (BIG) black pants on and you’d never even know! (Say no to see-through skirtS!) 😂 Screen shot this image and open the like to know it app to shop directly 😊❤️ #liketkit http://liketk.it/2vDLY @liketoknow.it
You guys are getting a sneaky peak of a shoot I recently worked on with such a fab team. So excited about this one - shot on a vintage train with a glam 50's style, aka everything I dream about!

Little secret, my most favourite past time is having afternoon tea 🙊I could eat it all day, everyday and even if I did... I’m pretty sure it would still fill me with joy every time. Is there anything better than when they bring it out and explain every delicious cake to you? 😂 Todays delightful afternoon tea was at @sandersonsocial and had a Mad Hatters theme. I had a gluten free version and every cake was mouth watering. If you’re thinking of visiting, do it quick - they have a pond full of faux flamingos and a floral swinging seat! 💕 #AfternoonTea
I've realised it's possible to fall in love with a palette... this one is the limited edition Icons Collection Palette by @Rodialbeauty and it's perfect for creating a dewy, effortless look in no time at all. It basically gave me the best makeup day ever and we all know those are the best! With two new shades, you can contour, blush, highlight and go. Easy to blend, super pigmented and perfect for travelling. I have also popped some extra tips on how to use some of the shades in my instagram stories! #rodialicons #IWorkWithRodial Ad
I'm SO glad the sun came out today...

I've been using @simpleskin for years now but have only recently tried out the Water Boost range. After testing it for a few weeks I can safely say it makes my skin feel so soft, hydrated and so much brighter (bye bye dull skin!) 😍 Along with the other products I've been using the facial gel wash to remove my makeup and the cleansing water to get rid of any stubborn foundation - they are a match made in heaven. If you struggle with sensitive skin definitely give this range a try, it's infused with skin-essential minerals and natural plant extracts which leave your skin feeling super fresh... my fave! 💙 #HydrationMadeSimple AD

Anyone else spend their day frantically searching the loft for their Summer clothes?! 😅 I did manage to piece a few outfits together that only involve me having to fake tan my ankles and arms, so that’s a bonus 😂 This look is very blue and I love it. Silky tee, cute pastel flats and bargain £1 sunnies! 💙 #ootd
A little shot from the Husband - I came along on this shoot and looked after the couples puppy... LIFE GOALS! ❤️
