Last week, I went on a much needed holiday. Being self-employed is truly amazing, but I do take very little time off - I usually work nearly every day, night, weekend and all over Christmas! Not that I'm complaining, I love what I do - but I always allow myself a full week off in June where I take a break, and do absolutely no work at all, which is always bliss!
This year Michael and I went to the beautiful Algarve, in Portugal. Here are a few snaps from my trip.....
The beach...quiet, unspoilt and hot!
Outfit one evening...wearing my Prada-esque Primark hot rod print skirt, red vest and bow cinch belt from H&M
We went to an amazing sand sculpture exhibit. All these are made entirely just from sand and water!
And VERY talented sculpters!
Loved Willy Wonka!
Me with Hello Kitty :) I carried an umbrella with me round the show, as it was 35 degrees centigrade (about 95 F) and the sand was reflecting it as well - scorchio!
We also wandered round castles
Quiet fishing bays
and admired ornate church buildings. Really enjoyed our trip!
Another outfit I wore one night - 60s Hawaiian Tiki Dress that I got for $6 off Etsy. Styled with my trusty H&M waist bow cinch belt.
We also managed to find a charity/thrift shop or two on our travels and picked up these cool things:
Olive print retro glass - 50c (about 40p). It did have a friend, but it got smashed in transit - boo hoo :(
And this vintage psychedelic tray for €1 (about 85p)
I feel really refreshed, and back in the swing of things now so will be catching up on all your blogs this weekend :) x
