I AM GOING ON HOLIDAY IN LESS THAN A WEEK!!!
Yeah baby! We’re getting on a plane, we’re leaving the UK and we are chasing the sun! It’s been a long time coming this holiday, The Boy has never been on a plane and GG has only got as far as Ireland on one, so to say we’re excited is a slight understatement!
The packing will commence next week, and I’ve already been stockpiling some goodies to take with me, top of that list are the proper beach things, I’m talking Designer Swimwear baby, all in one place – beach cafe – Ta Dah!!
I want every.single.thing here! It’s not often I get to daydream about laying on a beach, sunglasses on, book in hand, cocktail to the side (can you picture that scene?!) but it’s in touching distance now, so to go along with my daydreams, I thought I’d do my dream beach look.
1: Seafolly Halterneck Bikini £88
2: Kabuki Bloom Triangle Bikini £83
3: Hipanemas Madness Bracelet £95
I’m not that brave sadly, so this really is my wish list, my “wish I was bikini brave” list! Accessories though, all over those! I’ve even got some temporary tattoos by Flash Tattoos, in gorgeous metallics that last 4-6 days, they’re not your usual temporary tats either, think geometric shapes, jewellery, stars, I will probably cover myself in them! And, no doubt the kids will be having their fair share of them too. I bet I even get one on the bloke. Did I mention we got new tattoos the other week, and now he is addicted as me and is already planning his next two or three tattoos! *HOT*
I have the MOST amazing beach bag by Lemlem that is going to be earning it’s keep and going everywhere with us. Handwoven, pink, white and blue stripes with a bright, clashing print interior. It’s got pockets on the outside for easy grabbing of the purse, suncream, glasses, whatever and it’s HUGE so the whole day can get thrown in there ready to go.
I’ve got a stack of magazines that haven’t been read, a book that I want to grab at the airport – Love Virtually by Daniel Glattauer – and no other plans whatsoever! We just want to sit on the beach, play in the sea, do a bit of sightseeing and just relax the hell out for the whole 7 days. I expect there will be a lot of alcohol, some really good food and plenty of freckles!
I’m counting down the days……!
