Hello July!

Hello!

IMG_7940

I hope you have all had a wonderful June!

I cannot believe we are now into July – where is the year going?  Are you all enjoying the sunshine?

I have just come back from an amazing little holiday in Marbella, Spain & I will be posting some pictures on here over the weekend!  Be sure to come back & check them out – it was a wonderful break away with my two best friends!  Sunshine, music, memories & fun, we really did have a great time.

However, it’s now back to reality, but thankfully England has been lovely and kind to us all and the sun has been shining its little heart out the last few days!

The weekend is now upon us & I for one cannot wait to top up my holiday tan!

Happy Friday! x

Vacation: Mykonos Day Five

Hello & welcome to our last day!

IMG_6688

We have had SUCH a wonderful holiday! I have felt like the luckiest girl in the world the last few days.

IMG_6693

We had our last breakfast in the hotel & had our last few rays of sunshine!

IMG_6701

The thought of leaving the island make me so sad, so we went back into the Old Town & grabbed some Greek Froyo from a hidden frozen yoghurt place!

IMG_6719

It was SO hot today, that my hat became a permanent fixture! I wasn’t going to take one as I’m not quite sure it suits me, but boy was I thankful for it!

IMG_6708

We made sure we walked slowly back to the hotel to prolong everything & we then went for some lunch to keep us going before our journey home!

IMG_6696

The thought of it being our last lunch made me super sad!

IMG_6711

We grabbed a glass of wine to toast the holiday before getting changed & checking out of the best hotel that we have ever stayed in! The staff were absolutely fantastic & we really hope to be seeing them again next year!

I changed into my travel outfit, which consisted of a H&M maxi dress, my Marc Jacobs sunnies, my trusty hat & my flip flops. I also carried a little black cardigan in my travel bag as I would have frozen to death on my return to Gatwick!

IMG_6715

I’m really not the best flyer, but the sunset was pretty cool! We arrived back to Gatwick at 10:15pm.  We then had a long journey back home to Birmingham, where we stopped for a Starbucks & had a very loud motorway singsong!

IMG_6718

So that’s it! Our 5 day vacation is complete! It’s back to work & I’m counting down until my next getaway!

 

Vacation: Mykonos Day Four

After our little sleepover last night, we were feeling even more relaxed & refreshed!

IMG_6619

I felt like I had definitely had a lot of sun over the last few days & I had planned a lovely little pool day, sitting in some shade finishing my book!

IMG_6721

The book that I was reading was a truly heartbreaking true story, which put me through every emotion! I was angry, upset, empathetic & annoyed. Back home, it’s sometimes hard to completely get lost in a book, but this holiday was the perfect opportunity for me to do so!

If you would like to check this book out, you can do so on Amazon here.

IMG_6631

We then went for lunch, where AGAIN we were served amazing food.

IMG_6630

Greek salads always taste better in Greece!!

IMG_6634

Dan ordered coffee & we caught the last few hours of sunshine!

IMG_6649

With it being our last evening, we wanted to make the most of it & to stop me from crying the whole day, Dan went & brought some prosecco from our little wine shop.

IMG_6687

We sat on our balcony together for the last time (sob!).

IMG_6670

I felt like I could have sat there forever!

We then dressed for dinner & had drinks in the Bar, before our last meal in the Restaurant.

IMG_6770

We went for a salmon bellini & an Octopus salad to start, which was delicious of course!

IMG_6681IMG_6682

I then went for the chicken served with couscous.  The staff then brought over some Greek shots to finish our holiday! It was a lovely gesture & one we welcomed!

IMG_6683

With our last few hours looming, I went to bed that night both devastated & thankful for the chance to be in such a wonderful place!

*come back to see what we did on our last few hours in Mykonos!*

Vacation: Mykonos Day Three

After last night’s dinner, I woke up in another wonderful state of happiness & excitement!

We had planned to go to Nammos for lunch.

IMG_6598

After hearing lots about it & with all celebrities being fans, it was a must do on our list!

IMG_6571

Located on the beautiful Psarou Beach, it was a 10 minute scenic taxi drive away from our hotel.

IMG_6564

We got dropped right on the Beach & was confronted with stunning views!

IMG_6574

Lunch was served from 1pm, so we took a stroll along the beach first.  Spotting the yachts in the distance was a sight in itself & Nammos actually offer a yacht service where they will deliver your food right to your yacht. (Maybe one day, huh!).

IMG_6587IMG_6595

We managed to get a seat right on the front, where we people watched whilst having a lovely lunch!

IMG_6591

We went for pitta bread & homemade humous to start & it was the BEST humous ever. Seriously.

IMG_6603

I then went for the chilli shrimp linguini & Dan settled on the chicken salad.

IMG_6597

We were super full & when paying our bill, we got given some Greek shots.  Oh wow. I am not good with shots. But you’re on holiday, right?! I think I dealt with it quite ladylike (& when I say that, I mean I didn’t puke!). CHEERS!

IMG_6602

It was a lovely gesture by the restaurant & a perfect way to end lunch.

We then got a taxi back to our Hotel & went for a little walk.

IMG_6639

We had decided to have a little sleepover in the evening so we went on the hunt for local produce stores, where we could stock up on Greek food for dinner!

IMG_6709

I was so excited to do this as I love to visit all the local butchers, fruit stores & markets! In England, we’re used to big, commercialised supermarkets, where convenience comes first.  On holiday, I don’t want this!

We found a wonderful little shop where we brought olives, meats, bread & cheese.

IMG_6601

Dan then found a local wine store where he went & brought a bottle of red wine to go with our food.

IMG_6445

We spent the whole evening in our robes & slippers just chilling out on the balcony, drinking our wine & eating our home brought Greek food!

IMG_6606

It just goes to show that you don’t always have to spend a lot to have the best nights! To be able to do both with someone is very special! It was a perfect evening!

*come back on Friday to see what we did on Day Four!*
