Holiday Scrapbook

Hi everyone, I'm back from Gran Canaria and suffering from a serious case of the post-holiday blues, so I thought I would share some of my favourite photos that I took on the trip with you. I know this isn't a typical beauty/fashion post from me but hopefully some of you might like a little lifestyle post for a change :)
My boyfriend Sean and I stayed at the Lopesan Baobab Hotel in Meloneras in Gran Canaria. It was literally the most beautiful hotel I have ever seen - every inch of the design was African-themed, from the river full of fish and turtles that ran on the floor beneath our room to the intricate bedroom furniture and balcony railings. I was so impressed and would definitely recommend this hotel whole-heartedly to couples looking for a romantic break in a seriously idyllic setting. The food was also fantastic - we've never been so well-fed in our lives, all-you-can-eat buffets for breakfast, lunch and dinner are not the ideal way to keep your bikini body trim, let me tell you.
We had such a great week tanning by the beautiful pools, visiting a wildlife park, watching a film at the moonlight cinema, watching the turtles in the hotel and getting rather drunk!
 
*VERY PHOTO HEAVY POST AHEAD!*
 

 


 
my gorgeous fella
 

 
 
 
 
 
 

so much amazing food!
 
 
and amazing cocktails...

 
...which led to this drunken mess
 

Palmitos Park
 
 
I really love tortoises!
 

Amazing dolphin show, that would be my dream job
 



Nemo
 

 
 
Crazy afro bird
 

 
 
Grand Italia, the restaurant on the seafront which we visited two nights in a row
 

The Moonlight Cinema where we watched Django Unchained until 3am with blankets

 And my favourite photo of us on our last night
 
Hope this wasn't too boring and I hope you're all having a lovely Summer so far!
