Denim Shorts, Pink Hearts


I haven't worn denim shorts for years. When I was in university all those years ago (!!!), I managed to find the perfect pair of cut off vintage Levi's and I loved them. Unfortunately, finishing uni, getting older and working behind a desk all took their toll and I gained weight, meaning my beloved Levi's were passed onto my sisters. While in Benidorm, I suddenly realised how much of denim shorts-sized gap there was in my life and set out to buy some.

30 Before 30 Update


A few days ago, I celebrated my 26th birthday. Admittedly, I'd been feeling a bit anxious about it. The past couple of birthdays I'd had hadn't been particularly pleasant for whatever reason and who doesn't get a bit wobbly knowing they're creeping ever closer to thirty years old?! Thankfully, I had a really enjoyable birthday and I don't feel as bad about my age as I expected to. Seeing as it's now a year since I created my 30 Before 30 goals list, I thought I'd give a little update on where I'm at with it.

Lush American Cream [Product Review]


I'm forever losing an eternal war with my hair. As a teenager, I found it so easy to grow my hair. Although it was never THICK, it was much thicker than it is now and it was super soft. I'd cut it when I was bored of it, and grow it when I felt like it.

Then, I discovered bleach.

Multi-Coloured Pastel Co-Ord


If going on holiday isn't the most perfect time to wear pretty pastels and get photographic evidence of doing so, I don't know when is! I purchased this amazing colourful lace two piece last year but haven't had much chance to wear it, that is, until I went to Benidorm.

An Ode to Benidorm


Benidorm, ah Benidorm. I know the reputation you have. As soon as I hit "Buy" on the flights, I found myself hesitant to share my joy on social media. While normally I'd shout from the rooftops about booking a holiday, a holiday abroad on a PLANE, I know the kind of looks people get when you say you're going to Benidorm. Whenever I did mention to people I was going away, I'd say I was going to Spain, only mentioning exactly where when pressed to.

But Benidorm, you do not deserve the negative reputation you have.

What I Read in April


Despite taking a week off work in April to go on a holiday where wi-fi was pretty much non-existent, I still didn't manage to catch up on my 2017 Reading Challenge. I'd originally intended to do a lot of reading while I was in Benidorm but when I arrived, I found myself incredibly reluctant to take my tablet to the beach. However, I did manage to squeeze a few books in last month...
