Girls Holiday to Majorca! - Part 2


As expected, here is my part 2 for my holiday post! If you haven't read the previous one, have a look at this one first: Part 1

Wednesday 21st June 

On the Wednesday.. it went a little bit wrong, but hey we were in Spain so you can't complain! (That sounds good to say). We booked to do go on the Magic Catamaran and it was an early start and we all got ready and headed to the bus stop.. and waited for 40 odd minutes.. and no bus turned up :( We had to go back to the hotel and at first we were going to get a refund but we ended up going on the Friday instead and I'm so glad we did, it was one of my favourite things to do. So because that didn't go to plan we went to another beach instead and walked around the little village there and then got a train back which was actually so fun haha.

Thursday 22nd June 

This day we hadn't planned anything until the evening so we chilled most of the morning/early afternoon by the pool as we hadn't for a little while as we were always out and about. And then we went off the Magaluf to see an evening show called Pirates. I used to go to Majorca like every year when I was younger with my family and we went to this show a lot and I remembered how good it was so when I went back again with the girls I thought, we have got to go see this! I hadn't been in like 8 years or so, so I couldn't remember much of it, and obviously all the main pirates were different people this time but it was still just as good as I remember. They kind of tell a story of these 4 pirates who get captured by the French Pirate and his men and they go to kill them all however the good pirates escape and they kill him instead! They show the story through amazing acrobatics and gymnastics and the room gets split to what pirate you cheer on and we got Captain Scarlett so at the end when you could get pictures with them we of course got a group one with our Captain! 

Friday 23rd June

This day which I've spoken about in my monthly love for June - which you can see here - is our trip on the magic catamaran which we finally got on! We were worried on the day that the bus wouldn't show up again haha but so glad it did! It was a afternoon one as well so we didn't have to get up as early this time. 

We got there, well the bus stopped and the driver was like get off and walk down there.. I think every one was kind of confused but there was a big crowd of us so we all followed one another and found it. 

We ended up sunbathing, swimming in the sea, I really enjoyed just sitting there in the sunshine in my bikini just looking at all the views as the boat was moving, it was so lovely. It was a little scary going into the sea because of course you get in from the boat and obviously you can't touch the floor so it's quite tiring keeping yourself up haha. But as it was so warm on the boat it was a good feeling to cool down in the sea but oh my god, when you first go to get in it's such a shock from the coldness of it! 

Saturday 24th June

And then it was home time! :( We had a early start but the airport was quick to go through again and all of a sudden we were on the plane home. It was a sad moment when you land back in the UK but as the same time it was nice to be home and in my own bed!

I had such a lovely holiday with the girls and I'm so happy I went! I'm ready to this every single year with them all!! 

I didn't take all the pictures I used so thank you to the girls for them, I have now been back to work for another few weeks now and I'm already missing the sunshine, the pool, the evenings, the day trips, take me back!

Pictures of these days are below!

Hope you enjoyed my holiday posts, and as always, chat soon!

Things I love: June Edition

Good morning! 

I know I missed out last month's faves so I thought I'd get this one in before it gets too into the month of July! 

I've been crazy busy as per usual, had to get ready for my holiday, went on holiday, had a weekend with Adam and now this weekend coming I'm working on the Saturday so been a busy bee. But it's all good because I have a day off today so can finally sit down and write out some blog posts! 

What I watched: 

I'm going to say Orange is the New Black, I'm kind of sad I watched it so quickly though... but it was really good, funny, emotional, full of so many good moments. I'm so glad I started watching it, I remember when it first came out and everyone was so hyped about it and I was like, nah I don't think it looks that great, and then I thought I can't judge something without having a watch so I started watching it and ended up spending every night just watching a few episodes until I was caught up with it! So yes, I would recommend you guys to watch this if you haven't already, you'll find it on Netflix! 

What I snapped: 

Well, as I said went to Majorca didn't I! So obviously I'm going to have so many holiday pictures but I'm just going to choose one that's a fave of mine because I am putting up holiday blog posts and they'll have so many pictures on there. Here's all us girls all ready for the evening, I think we just had dinner here and was on the way to the pool bar area where they do all the hotel entertainment, lovely. 

What I wore: 

I'm going to say my dungarees, I love them haha! I've always wanted to get some and I always thought no they're not going to look good on me surely. But I actually love them, although they are quite short, I've been wearing them here with tights when it wasn't so warm but I wore them going home from Majorca and that's the first time I have without tights and I realised how short they were but oh well! I don't really have a great picture of me in them, I could get changed into them now but I'm so lazy haha. 

What I did: 

I'm going to say the last full day we had in Majorca we spent it on a boat in the middle of the sea, it was so amazing. At the front of the boat it had spots to sunbathe which was absolutely glorious, lying there on a boat in the middle of the sea, just listening to the waves. I did of course, get very burnt. I put sun cream on several times but I did go in the sea at one point and sometimes you forget to re-apply until you can actually feel yourself burning. But it was one of my favourite days for sure, I would love to do that again, like every weekend would be fab. I think I want to move to Spain, it's so lovely there. 

Look at these boat views... here's us being so instagram and enjoying the views.

What I ate: 

Probably the buffet of food every day all day on holiday! But my favourite thing to eat was a plate of salad with some caesar dressing, it was so tasty and really refreshing to eat on hols, it was nice to balance out some of the less healthy food I ate.. but as soon as I got home I added caesar salad dressing to the shopping list! 

What I drank:

Been really enjoying strawberry Schnapps with lemonade, it's so fruity and refreshing and it just goes well with the sunshine at the moment. 

What I went: 

Obviously Majorca. Although I'm not going to talk much about it in this post check out this one, part 1 of my holiday: Majorca!

What I used: 

My camera. I've had so many good opportunities to take some fabulous pictures, especially of the scenery as well, here's some nice landscape pictures. 

Thank you for reading, hope you all had a good June! My July is going to be considerably less fun as I haven't got many great plans so I don't think my next monthly loves will be as exciting! Hope you all have a good weekend, and as always, chat soon.


Girls Holiday to Majorca!

Good evening, hope you've all had/having a lovely week. 

At the end of June I spent a week away in Majorca with my friends and it was the absolute best. The weather was amazing, the relaxation was needed, the food was glorious and the company was really good! 

I'm going to split this blog post into two as I'll go through what we did every day of the week and if I did that in one blog it would be an absolute essay. So today's post will be about Saturday the 17th to the Tuesday, with loads of pictures included of course. 

So Saturday morning we set our alarms for 2.30am! And left the house around 3am to get the airport for 4, the airport part went by so quickly! I feel like it's one of the quickest airport journeys i've experienced, although it had been a long while since I had been abroad. We tried to get some breakfast at the airport but we didn't get the chance so most of us had a spot of breaky on the plane which tasted alright actually. When we arrived in Palma we then had to get on a coach to our hotel which was just over a hour I believe. Here's me and Amy and Kayleigh on the coach on the way, super excited! 

I travelled in tights and it was absolutely boiling when we got off the plane, but to be fair, you wouldn't want to wear shorts in the England at 3am..

As soon as we arrived we got to our hotel room, we were on the third floor, going up those steps like 3 times a day got pretty tiring.

We got changed immediately and had some lunch. Going all inclusive was so good, breakfast, snacks, lunch, snacks and dinner all included, as well as the drinks for the evenings! 

The food was mostly always enjoyable and they had a bit of everything. I love the salads, I had a lot of salads and fruit for pudding. We then spent the rest of the day by the pool, they had a main pool for everyone and then a smaller one just for adults so we always went there as it was a lot quieter and more relaxing. 

On the Sunday we spent all day by the pool, it was the weekend and we had only just got there so it was really nice to relax for the weekend. Although I was constantly putting sun cream on I got so burnt, I was like a lobster! But here's some pictures of  the evenings of hotel entertainment and many drinks.

On Monday we hadn't booked to do anything but we decided to go find a beach near where we were staying. The beaches are all quite small and adorable, but so stunning. When you first dip your feet in the water it's quite cold but once you're in and swimming around it soon warms up, and to be fair, after being so hot and bothered from being in the sun it's such a nice feeling going into the sea to cool off. Although you never think you'll burn much if you're in the sea but oh you do. I never realised I was so sensitive to the sun.. I burn so easily, even after applying factor 50 every hour or so!! 

On the Tuesday we visited the Caves of Drach where we wondered around them and then had a small orchestra.
The caves were amazing, we all did expect the orchestra to be a little bit bigger as it was 4 people on a small boat but it was enjoyable to listen to. There was mini boat ride afterwards which we thought would lead us all the way out of the caves but it was just for like two seconds, so was a tiny but disappointing. 

I know I said in my previous post how I wasn't a fan of the heat however being here, most of the time just in your bikini it was really nice and it certainly helped with making me feel a lot more stress free and calm.

But all in all the first 4 days were amazing, so relaxing, just what I needed. I am so ready to go on Holiday again! 

Pictures below!

You can see the next 4 days in the next blog. As always, chat soon.
