Welcome to this week’s instalment of Amanda Zips It Up.
It has been a long winter. But it’s now May. It’s a Bank Holiday weekend. And, finally, this blog is all about the summer.
That “love it or hate it” style – espadrilles – make a comeback this year, and they’re more exclusive and expensive than ever.
I have come across probably the best Espadrille designer in Europe – Alice X– who sent me my very own custom-made pair, ready for the Balearic summer.
They are more expensive than one would assume, on account of being made of leather. So perhaps not to be worn on the beach or those long treks through the airport.
As we start thinking about summer, thoughts turn to suntans, sunburn and how to protect our skin. I have the best beauty range of serums on the market to help prevent that inevitable sun damage and premature ageing.
Also – I wanted to let you all know that the Ibiza Fashion Festival 2018 is happening from June 7 – 12th2018, starting on the 7thwith a swimwear catwalk show at Nikki Beach Ibiza at 1- 3pm. The following day features a pop-up runway show at the Es Vive rooftop terrace. And the festival finishes at Hotel Wiki Woo. Expect lots of labels, DJs, models and cocktails. Well worth a visit if you are a fashion lover like me.
Finally, we inject a little bit of glow-in-the-dark lingerie; perfect if you’re still experiencing dull days, to promise of light at the end of the tunnel.
