Cyprus in Photos!

At the end of July, I went to the Greek part of Cyprus with my family and my boyfriend for our annual family walking-around-ruins holiday. It was SUPER hot, but I survived temple searching in 40 degree heat, go me! Cyprus felt really different to the Greek Islands I’ve been to before, perhaps because it’s so far east of Greece. It had a very rocky coast, and the center of the island consisted of a beautiful sprawling mountain range. We did lots of sight-seeing, swimming and eating, AND I got to wear a bikini every day. Perfect!

When museum hunting, we found this awesome art school and the building was covered in these cool statues, objects and colourful glass!

Newcastle, Northern Ireland

Recently I spent a long weekend in Northern Ireland with loads of my family. We were in a seaside town called Newcastle, nestled under the Mourne mountains, and it was really lovely. Even though it was cold, the sun was still shining! Apart from lots of family time, we did lots of walking and lots of eating (Yay! The best part of holidays!) Here are my photos of the beach, the mountain and the town.

The beach was super long and really interesting. We walked for ages but it didn’t feel like we covered any ground. The sand was covered with these wavy ridges, multi coloured seashells and seeweed that was so brightly green it almost glowed!

How cute are these swan shaped pedallos? It wasn’t really the weather for pedalloing but next time I’m back I’d love to go for a boat ride on one of these!

Cala’n Porter, Menorca

Recently I spent a week in Menorca with four of my lovely girlfriends. We hired a villa in the seaside town of Cala’n Porter, and I had a fantastic time! I would seriously reccomend Menorca to anyone who’s looking for somewhere to go on holiday. It was warm but breezy, we didn’t get bothered by insects, and it wasn’t too touristy. Four of us are veggies, and we didn’t have trouble finding things to eat in restaraunts, which was a pleasant surprise! The water was so beautiful and blue, I wish I never had to leave. Here are some snaps from my trip.

menorca 4In Cala’n Porter, there is a club in the caves, IN THE CAVES! It’s so cool, and the view from the dancefloor is incredible. The club was overpriced, and I’m not sure the locals enjoyed our dance moves, but nethertheless we had a crazy good night there.

Me and a friend spent a day doing sosme sightseeing in the capital of Menorca, Mahon, the best part of which was our boat ride around the huge natural harbour. It was glass-bottomed so we could see all the fishes swimming around.

Dungarees in the park.

Happy valentines day everyone! I hope you’re having a nice day. If it’s not going your way, don’t worry, you can look at some pictures of me to cheer you up.

Over the weekend I braved the cold weather to take some pictures in a park near where I live. I LOVE these dungarees. I found them in a vintage shop in Leicester, and almost didn’t buy them. I’m so glad I did because I wear them all the time! Sometime, I wear them with pigtails and a checked shirt andย  I look like I live on a farm. It’s so much fun.

If this post had a conclusion, it would be that you should get some dungarees, they are the best!
