Things I learnt on holiday…

  • There will always be someone who looks better than you by the pool.
  • There will always be someone who looks worse (moral of the story… don’t worry, just relax)
  • Nail varnish changes colour in the sun. My pretty coral colour turned orange… must remember to take nail varnish remover or apply a UV shield top coat.
  • Foreign cocktails are strong.
  • I will never have a deep mahogany tan, but I will have lots of freckles (Nivea Protect & Bronze Suncream is absolutely fab).
  • Which leads to two other things I also learnt…
  • It’s possible to burn even when in the shade. Wear SPF people! (FYI: I always wore suncream, but on the last day wore one too low SPF for my pale skin and went a little bit pink)
  • Telling the boyfriend that the suncream I bought had fake tan in (it doesn’t) doesn’t stop him wanting to use it.

    I always tell myself there will be someone who looks worse than you by the pool! My nail varnish changed colour on hoilday this year aswell, but weirdly it was just the hot pink one that did, not the turquoise one x
