Fun in the Sun.

Hi! I'm back from two fabulous weeks in Cyprus - here's a few photos from our holiday. We stayed in Protaras which was lovely, it had the perfect combination of relaxing beaches, daytime activities and nightlife. I'd definitely recommend it for a couples holiday, perhaps not so good if you're after a wild one with the girls though. We spent most of the fortnight chilling on the beach or by the pool but broke it up with a boat trip, some parasailing (more on that to come) and a round of mini golf - which David lost!

A trip to the farm

On Monday me and David decided to go to the farm to see all the baby animals. We'll I decided we we're going to the farm - he didn't have that much of a choice. My mum always used to take me and my sister when we were little and I haven't been for years - I don't know why, it's fab, the animals are so cute. The little lambs were my favourite - look at the picture below, how could you not fall in love with that!?

How much of a poser is this Alpaca!? He pricked his ears up and looked straight at me when I got my camera out.

There was also an area where you could have a hold of the rabbits, unfortunately it was full of kids so I didn't get a look in. I was all up for elbowing my way in there but David reminded me that the farm is actually for children and it wouldn't be very nice for me to barge in and pinch a rabbit. Shame.

I'm off on holiday on Sunday for two weeks so things will be rather quiet on the blog front for a while - I'm sure I'll have lots of posts when I'm back though.

Floral Trousers

Trousers - George at Asda | Top - Zara | Necklace - Primark | Shoes - New Look

I need some opinions on these trousers - I'm just not sure I can pull them off. I couldn't resist buying them as they were only £14 but I really don't know if they're very 'me' - what does everyone think?

They're quite possibly the comfiest things ever, its like wearing pyjamas. I should keep them even if it's just to wear in bed haha. I'm going on holiday on Sunday so I'm thinking I might wear them to fly in.

Speak soon. x

Shopping Trip

Real Techniques Stippling Brush | Models Own Beetlejuice in Purple Blue | Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer in Fair | Dress - Topshop | Bralet - Primark | Tshirt - Zara

I've had a shopping trip to the Metro Centre with my mum today and ended up coming home with quite a few bits. We had a lovely day as well, we went for lunch at Pizza Express and had a bit of a catch up as well as stopping for a much needed coffee break.

I got some pretty good bargains too, the dress pictured was only £15 - it said £20 on the tag as well but was cheaper when we got to the till - love it when that happens! The bralet was only £6 from Primark and the tshirt was about £15 from Zara, its a lovely thick material too and I love the rose gold zip on the back. I'm a bit unsure what to wear the bralet with as I'm definitely not daring enough to wear it on its own! Any styling tips would be appreciated.

The cosmetics in the first picture are all from Boots, bought with advantage card points. I really wanted the Real Techniques brush as I've heard such good things about it - so glad I didn't have to pay for it with real money too! The concealer is an absolute essential, I've been using it since I was about 16. It works so well that I've never really bothered to try anything else. The nail polish was a bit of a treat but I kind of wish I'd bought one of the other colours instead. The colour looks gorgeous in the bottle but it's a bit disappointing on my nails. It went on really thinly and needed 4 coats to look good. The colour is also more of a brown than the purple that the name suggests too.

I got a few other bits also that I haven't photographed, including a maxi dress from Primark that I'm not sure about, a gorgeous shirt from H&M with a lace collar that I'm sure will be appearing in an outfit post soon and some fab heels from New Look which were reduced to £10. Not sure my boyfriend was too happy about me coming home with another pair of shoes though - our flat is completely overrun with them already!!
