Pre-holiday haul

2 weeks from now I will be high up in the air on my way to the sunny Balearic islands for a week of sunshine and sea with my family and I can not wait! It’s been a crazy year so far so i’m really looking forward to kicking back and relaxing with a cocktail or two. Now whilst I don’t usually talk about fashion on here (my fashion sense doesn’t extend much past activewear…) I’ve found some amazing things recently and really wanted to share!

H&M Bikini

I really struggle with bikini shopping, for years i’ve never been able to find bikinis I liked and end up leaving it until the last minute which results in a LOT of stress. So this year I planned ahead and a few weeks ago, managed to find an absolute treat of a bikini which is so comfortable, flattering and affordable. Good work H&M!

Malibu suncream

Anyone who knows me knows that any tan I ever have is fake, I am naturally very pale and getting a tan is pretty impossible for me – I just get lots of freckles and redness! In the past i’ve tried to really push for a tan with low factor suncreams but ultimately that is just going to cause more damage and we don’t want that… so this year i’m being super careful and have bought a range of Malibu products to keep my skin safe! I went for a spray on suncream (so much less faff than a cream in my opinion!), a super high factor face lotion and a lip balm in a yummy mango flavour. No-one likes sunburn, it really has the potential to ruin a holiday so i’m super happy with my purchases which i’m sure will keep me protected!

Kiss the Sky top

This top is very out there for me but I just fell in love with the little pom pom style detailing (if that’s what they’re called!) I love the crop length as it works really well with loads of styles of bottoms and the detail means you don’t need too much else in terms of jewellery to make an outfit out of it, perfect. This is also in the sale so it’s rude not to really…

Forever 21 dress

This has been one of my favourite online shopping destinations for so long now, I always struggle to find stuff in store as it’s just so big and I get quite overwhelmed but online it’s easy to search a particular item of clothing or style and find what you’re after! I put in a big order last week, positive I would end up sending some back, but I literally love every item and cannot wait to wear them when I go away. This floaty blue dress is my favourite and fits so well (AND it’s a total bargain!)
