A little only partly-beauty update coming from sunny southern Spain, some of you may know I’ve been away on holiday – but as I write this it’s coming to an end! Sob! But over the past week or so I have taken a few pics so have some holiday-beauty themed posts to share with you, but I thought I’d start with a bit more of a random one. With some gratuitous food shots of course.
It’s been a lovely holiday – nice to spend some time It’s been a week of pure chilling out, eating delicious food (cannot get enough of melon and ham) and enjoying the sunshine. I’m not sure I want to come back to the real world really!
These have been my essentials for the past week. Piz Buin sun cream*, Etat Pur melanin/extra tanning boost cream* (I’m pale, I’ll try anything), my sunnies*, kindle and new bikini. The bikini was a bargain from ASOS sale actually – under £10. Score.
The sunglasses are Ralph Lauren and from Sunglassesshop.com – I’ve always been a bit of a sucker for cheap sunglasses, not really knowing what the difference was – but last year I bought a more expensive pair and really could tell the difference, I found there was so much less glare and so less squinting – so I’m fully converted to not scrimping on sunnies in future!
On the Kindle I’ve been a bit of a cliche and been reading the 50 Shades of Grey trilogy… I know, a sucker for hype. My review in a nutshell – it gets better than I thought at first. The story is more entertaining than I expected – but the naughty bits are a bit overdone (and get very dull and samey…) but a decent beach/pool read! I also have a couple of quality reads to get to… including ‘Diary of an Essex girl’….
