Summer Holiday

I haven't posted anything in a while - this is because I have just returned from a beautiful week in Bulgaria! I had the opportunity to go away with some friends and it was a beautiful week of sunbathing, eating, drinking and relaxing.

I have never been to Bulgaria before but it was a beautiful place - the weather was mostly amazing apart from the odd 10 minute rain storm. It was extremely cheap in terms of going out for dinner as a two course meal on the beach would cost about £10 which compared to English prices is amazing.

I managed to go the whole week without getting sunburnt which for me, being very fair skinned, is quite the accomplishment! I have pretty much no evidence of a tan though sadly - at this point I have learnt to embrace the paleness!

I ate soo much good food on holiday and found myself forming a new addiction to Greek Salads. In no way are these Bulgarian and I know you can get them here but for some reason I had an ungodly amount of feta cheese on holiday and I love it.

Overall a great week away and im now quite sad to be back in somewhat cloudy England!

Have you got any summer holidays planned this summer?

ShopStyle Festival Shopping Challenge

I saw this competition over on 'girlinthelens' (amazing blog, if you haven't already, take a look!), check it out for the details. Festival season is my absolute favorite time of year for fashion - Patterns, flowers and wellies - whats not to like.

Parka - F&F £30
Wellies - USC £12
Hat - Topshop £22
Sun Dress - Topshop £36
Duffle bag - Matalan £12.00
Sunglasses - H&M £6.99
No festival outfit would be complete without some sort of flowers whether it is a flower headband, or in this case I chose a hat with flower detailing. The parka is for the unpreictable english summer weather and I love how khaki green looks with a delicate white sundress. The duffle bag is a simple cross-over bag so that your hands are free for dancing and its big enough for the necessities. Finally, no festival outfit would be complete without wellies and these lime green ones are particularly amazing as they are glow in the dark and are a bargain. All these items were found through :) 

What are your festival necessities?

Summer Sun

Summer is finally here. 

I can't believe my second year of university is complete - it seems like yesterday I was going crazy at freshers.
The last walk from uni
Leaving uni this year was extra emotional as a lot of people I won't be seeing again as next year I will be in Toulouse on my Erasmus year! Me and my friend successfully found an apartment which is perfect and so I am starting to get much more excited to go - it's set to be a great year. 

Get ready for a lot more blogging from September as I indulge in french culture (wine, bread and cheese, right?).

My summer is starting swiftly with a week on Bulgaria next week - veryyyy excited indeed. Then followed by a few local festivals and a bit of work here and there and my summer is complete!

What are your summer plans?
