Holiday OOTD & Catch Up

I know I had said I would be blogging a bit more while away but to be honest it's really nice to get the break and not having to worry about blogging and taking pictures. Don't get me wrong I love nothing more than blogging about my daily activities but it's a good bit of work. 

Now that I've got a spare moment to sit down with my rose and wifi (love a good mid day drink) and can tell you all about my week. 

I've literally been living the same old routine ever day - coffee and croissant in the town , beach for 2/3 hours, lunch and cocktails in a variety of different establishments, another 1/2 hours of tanning then home, shower, change and out to dinner then drink the night away! 

I know some may get bored of a routine  but I have loved every minute of it. To get away from work and everything at home, it's nice to turn the brain off and just live in a relaxed atmosphere for a while.

Now of course there have been a few days where it's been either misty (far to many of them for my liking) or we've been a little "fragile" from the nighttime drinking so we have taken it extra easy with tapas and some more drinking ( I'm on my holiday!!!!) 

Also we have been enjoying the food ( let's not talk about the extra 10 stone I'm carrying around because of it) we have loved popping out and trying loads of new restaurants neither of us have tried here before (Iv been coming 9 years so that's hard to find new ones) and it's been a blast. 

Now on to the outfits- thanks to all the nibbles and wine, I'm not looking my best and in need of a blast in the gym but I'm having fun! I've tried to snap a few when  looking either respectable or not sunburnt. Here are some from the last week. 

OOTD 1- Apologies for the poor poor light- fluorescent is good for blog photos!

June Favourites

Hey guys! 

If you don't already know from my Instagram ( make sure to go follow me you lovely lot) I've been living it up in Spain for the last week and a half and will be for the next week and a half. Myself and the boy have been enjoying a well deserved vacay away from work and exams and helping him deal with the realisation of him being 25! (Only happened last week! He's still a bit shaken up) 
Below are some of my favourite snaps from this incredible holiday!!!

Now that I'm doing barking on about being on vacay I'll get down to what's really important here- my favourites!!!

I know I'm seriously late but I'm blaming holiday brain!! Below are my favourites from this month that I've been using religiously! 


I've blog sepreatly about all 3 of these beauty's over the last 2 months but definitely think they need another mention

I've been a little bold and tanning up a storm. Thanks to my dark skin (ta' mommy) I've worked my way down to a factor 8, bold I know I just can't help myself. I'm in love with my Hawaiian Tropic dry oil tanning oil*  this gives the most beautiful deep tan and always a summer staple of mine. This year tho it is joined by one of my new Hawaiian Tropic loves my Shimmer Effects* . This stuff is beautiful. It not only gives you an SPF protection, it also give you the most incredible shimmery glow. Definitely look like a million dollars on the beach! 

To help my skin through all of my sun worshiping I've been yet again addicted to my Piz Buin Tan Intensifying After Sun, my lovely friend Caroline turned me on to this baby last year and I'm so incredibly happy she did. With added Tanimal it boosts your tan whist nourishing your skin. 

Facial Skin Care 

La Roche - Posay -Effaclar duo + 

Another month and this is still in my top picks. I think it's safe to say anyone who has tried this loves it. I've ranted and raved about this product so much in my blog so I won't do it again- just know it's bloody brilliant. Definitely saved my skin this month and this holiday. 

Origins - Drink Up Intensive Mask

At the beginning of last month I popped into my local origins counter and picked up more than a few new goodies- all of which I will include in a huge post soon- but this has been my saviour. I used it prior to coming away but it has been my go to between the plane over and repairing my skin from the sun. I will be doing a whole post just on this baby when I'm home. 

Hair care 

Tony and Guy salt spray 

A summer staple for most women this is the perfect hair product for the summer. Sprayed on dry hair it gives the perfect beachy texture (it's also perfect for post beachy waves that make you look less like a hobo on the days where beach to bar are a common activity. 


Sally Hansen - I Pink I Can

 This amazing Barbie pink has become my summer go to polish. It is perfect with flip flops and only needs 2 coats to fully cover the nails and leave a perfect manicure. 

Proenza Schouler for Mac - Pinkfrindge

I blogged about this Lippy in my last favourites and I still haven't fallen out of love with it. It's the perfect  bright pink for holidays. I love it. 

Hope you've enjoyed my favourites. What are your favourites this month??
