So many photos - very sorry! As I said in my last blog post about packing light, I went on holiday to Alora in Spain this week and I thought I'd share a photo diary with you
Day 1 - by the pool
It was a super hot day (about 36 degrees) and we were desperate to enjoy it so we had a lie in and spent the day playing by the pool with some lilos.
I wore ASOS Passionfruit bikini with bandeau top and loopside bottoms which are currently on sale, and Sam wore blue Calvin Klein swimming trunks - £35 The bikini was great, it had a neck strap so the top didn't fall down when playing silly monkeys in the water.
I loved this dress! It was super slinky and I liked the vintage neckline. It was also stretchy enough to fit in my steak for dinner! Sadly I didn't have the hang on the travel hairdryer so my hair is a bit flat. It was also super hot so I ended up wearing it up the rest of the holiday.
Day 2 - Marbella Beach
We were taken to Marbella beach on the second day to get a taste of seaside living. The beach was lovely but the sand was so hot (first world problems)
I wore ASOS leaf print bandeau bikini - £30, Sam wore the same shorts. This bikini was lovely but very small, it was very difficult to swim in and maintain my dignity so it ended up being a lying down only bikini.
Day 3 - the lakes
The lakes near Alora are amazing! They are freshwater and have huge cliffs around which we could jump from. We ended up renting a pedalo for an hour and messing around in the caves and on cliffs (sorry Mum! We were safe!)
I wore Mango spot playsuit - £19.99. Again it had an elasticated waist so I could eat lots of Tapas and gin!
Day 4 - by the pool
We decided to spend our last day by the pool, enjoying doing nothing and not feeling guilty about it.
I don't know how the sunlight caught me here, but you can really see my uneven ribs. I used to be quite embarrassed about looking strange, but it's due to my scoliosis spinal fusion operation
playing with cameras!
In the evening I did a rope halo braid. I'll film a tutorial soon on how I did it.
And then I came home. I didn't get a chance to photo all my daytime outfits because I spent most the day swimming and attempting to play water vollyball with Sam!
