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!


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


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

Sean making fun of my photo pose -_-

 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!
