Summer Holiday Haul

Hi Lovelies, 

Hope you're all well. I've been a busy bee and time has been ticking away on me. So much so that in only a few days time I jet off to beautiful Bali for two weeks... excited doesn't cover it!

Excited though I may be I am still obsessively organised with it. My packing list was written out, then my check list of what I had started to pack was ticked off. Outfits were planned and shopping lists prepared. Are you the same?

As I stared down at my long list I thought it high time I write a little post about all my planning and purchases!

Malibu & Piz Buin Sun Protection

So firstly and most importantly I stocked up on sun protection. Bali is going to be incredible but also roasting and looking after your skin is so important. I've used Malibu sun creams before and like their smell (mmmm sun lotion smells amazing in general!).

However, I'm intrigued to test out the Miracle Tan element to the Factor 30 Malibu lotion. It's water resistant and as well as protecting skin and promoting tanning it also claims to enhance it. Finally, I bought a Piz Buin Factor 30 lip balm. I don't know about you but my lips get so very dry in the sun and it's an item I often forget to carry in my beach bag.. prepared this time!

Zara Haul 

I have a ridiculous amount of clothes so I wanted to try to tone down my pre-holiday spending but also treat myself to a few new items I could mix and match into my current wardrobe. Making sure new items complement those in your current wardrobe is so important and something I only recently started to take into consideration.

Zara is my absolute favourite store at the moment! So my haul is pretty much just from there. I bought two super cute shorts: high waisted khaki and floaty tropical florals. Keeping to the block colour and tropical print theme I also bought two crop tops: a floaty pink floral off the shoulder and a tight fitting white crop. They're the perfect colour tones to mix and match with and either combination will suit the Primark faux ostrich leather clutch & M&S brown suede heels.

I wanted some fun accessories too and so popped to Accessorize to pick up some beaded flip flops and transfer tattoos. Can't wait to try those out!

Find your Love Match with Personality Match

Are they the one?

Are we the perfect match?

Why are we so great together?

They're all questions we're all guilty of asking right? And if you're anything like me you've also done some Facebook stalking, read up on each others zodiac signs and forced him to take the '5 languages of love' test (id recommend it.. its really good actually!). 

So yep, I sound crazay and it makes me cringe but I'll be the first to admit I'm guilty of it. And why not too.. we all want to have just a little bit of external confirmation that the person who is so, so, totally Mr right for us, well, actually is.

PersonalityMatch App

Personality Match is the latest app I've used to do just that. Its free, quick and simple to use.

There are lots of 'love match' quizzes and tests on the web (trust me I know!). Most are good fun but are pretty much based around nothing... I'm thinking those mentioned in the eHarmony advert right... finding your perfect match is actually a camel based on your joint love of long walks on the beach?!

Yet Personality Match is a little different. Its questions are based behind theory. The app is based on the classic psychological tests by Katharine Cook Briggs, Isabel Briggs Myers and the theories of the psychologist Carl Jung. I'd already taken the Myers Briggs Indicator test at various different workplaces and always found it fascinatingly accurate. So I was intrigued to see what this test would say about me and how I matched with my own 'Mr Right' Jason.

PersonalityMatch Features:

  • Sophisticated personality test
  • Match your personality with friends
  • Learn about your friends’ personality type
  • See your compatibility score
  • Identify common frustrations and how to solve them
  • Get personalised advice on how to improve your relationship

So I took the test and my personality test result came out as The Commander - ENTJ. It was so interesting reading through the characteristics linked to me.

Jason also took the test and came out as The Visionary. Next I clicked match to find out how well matched mine and Jason's personalities were. It was a bit of a tense moment to say the least!

PersonalityMatch Results 

However, we matched really well I think.

We had a 75% match of personality traits. Jason and I are so similar to each other and we've always said it so it sort of confirmed what we thought. The app has been designed to highlight areas that could do with improvement.

What was interesting was the Lifestyle results showed us at different ends of the spectrum. It pretty much hit the nail on the head.  I'm pretty tightly wound, I like order and lists and organisation, whereas Jason is much more laid-back and relaxed.  I'm totally drawn to his easygoing attitude - Jason keeps me fun!

I was really impressed with the level of detail PersonalityMatch had about each person's results. And the personalisation. For example, my match results with Jason talk about Jason and I in the results- they're tailored to us which is just brilliant. It worked seamlessly. A really fun, easy and simple-to-use app that gives you a great insight into you and your other half and most importantly, how you fit together.

Definitely worth a download!

PersonalityMatch is free and available on iTunes and Google Play.
