Holiblog 4: Activities 🌞β›΅

We really wanted a chilled out holiday for our honeymoon and have therefore spent alot of this holiday doing just that, perfect 👌  

But, we have also filled the time with other activities to break up the days and to make sure that we saw plenty of this beautiful country (Well the part we were in anyway)

Here goes…

So, as I said alot of chilling by the pool & swimming for at least a few hours everyday (it’s a hard life but someone’s gotta do it :D)

We went for walks around the hotel complex & the local area… 🏨👣

…Usually followed by a nice refreshing drink… 🍹🍸

…And a game of pool! 🎱

There was also great live music most nights courtesy of our hotel 🎶🎹🎸🎤

We went on an allday boat trip that took you over to Madalena Island, a must see area of Sardinia. We sat on the front of the boat, enjoying the views and sunshine, had a delicious lunch prepared for us, swam in the sea and saw some cool fish and dolphins. 🐠🐋🐚

By boat is a fantastic way to see Sardinia in all its glory. β›΅🌊

Exploring Madalena Island…

We spent a morning on the beach! 🌞🐚

And took the shuttle bus to Baya Sardinia to look round, do a spot of shopping and have some lunch! 🚐

We’ve had the BEST time ever 💗

I thought it fitting to write about our honeymoon as I started this blog when we began our wedding planning πŸ™‚ 💐

& this was an awesome part 💗

Until next time,

Holiblog 1: The hotelΒ 

These are just a series of mini blogs capturing our honeymoon in Sardinia, Italy. We are having an amazing time so far 👍

Here’s a look at our hotel 🏨

Hotel Le Palme 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Our room! We got an upgrade from a standard to a classic for our honeymoon πŸ™‚

Our balcony…

… and the view from it.

The hotel is huge and a bit like a maze until you get used to it.

These cute canals give a lovely Venetian feel to the hotel.

These bridges/wooden walkways that go over the water and canals are lovely for a stroll after dinner, they are super romantic when its all lit up at night

It has its own private beach 🌊🐚

The pool is amazing, it’s great having it there to cool down in when it gets really hot or to just sit by and chill 😎✌🌞

I hope you enjoyed this little insight into our accommodation 👍

Until next time,

What’s in my travel bag?

So, We are off to Sardinia tommorrow for our honeymoon and I thought it would be cool to do a blog all about the bits I’m taking in my bag 🎒 Holiday essentials, clothes and travel pieces, here goes.

First up…

Holiday essentials 🌞

Skincare & summer make up! Suncream is of course a must (as well as after sun as it will be 30’c) I havn’t really got any top tips on suncream but I always go for a factor 20 & 50. Tim has fair skin and catches the sun really easily so 50 is a must!

I’ve also picked out a few summery make up bits to go with my usual pieces. 💄  

I’ve chosen orangey/coral/brown tones as these go really great with a tan. I chose Revlons liquid lipstick in the shade ‘flirt’, Bourjois’s liquid lipstick in the shade ‘Happy nude year’ & Barry Ms Cor Balmy lip balm in the shade ‘trouble & strife’

I also picked up a bronzer as I didnt actually have one!! I chose Collections Bronze Glow Mosaic bronzer, it’s so pretty and has a nice mixture of tones & shimmers. This also contains Vitamin C which is good for your skin 👍

Sunglasses are of course a must! I’ve got my prescription sunglasses ready in their case. I got these last year for our holiday to Italy and I havn’t looked back since, I hated not being able to wear sunglasses so it was awesome finally getting these.

Mini toiletries, a must just because! So cute and mini πŸ™‚ Wilko do a great selection of nice brands in mini toiletrie form which is great AND they were on offer 3 for 2, even better!

Next up…
Clothes 👕😎

These are just a few of my favourite bits that I have bought to take on holiday.

First up, this is a lovely cover up from H&M for Β£14.99, it’s a really lovely floaty, thin material and I love the blue and white colours with the shimmer of silver/gold running through it…

Now there’s a bit of a tassel theme going on here…

I picked up both of these pairs of shorts from Primark for Β£4 each! (Tassels!!) They must be the in thing this year.

This super cute vintagey looking swimsuit was from Matalan for Β£14.
I love the shape of it and the navy and white combo with gold detailing on the straps. I was happy with this find as I’m a bit fussy with swimsuits and I find them a tricky thing to buy when you’re not a fan of wearing them in the first place.

This is one of my favourite items that I found in  Primark (again Β£4) it’s so cute and will look great with any of the shorts that I’ve got, especially the ones I mentioned above ☝ #summergoals 🍦

Moving onto shoes…

Harry a potter flipflops! Need I say anymore?!? Super cool and only aroundΒ£1.50 in Primark.

Sandals, sandals, sandals! Defiantly an essential item and these lovely ones are also from Primark (I sense another theme here!)

I thought that these were lovely so I picked them up in brown and black, two staple colours when coordinating any outfit 👍 

I love the gold detail on the buckle and again TASSELS!! These were Β£5 each.

And finally… 

Travel essentials ✈

A travel bag! I always go for a big one as my hand luggage bag so that I can fit plenty of bits of bobs to travel with and occupy myself on the plane with, such as…

I picked this adult colouring book up in Bologna, Italy last year so I’m going to take this for the plane along with some books too!

My friend Rachel got me this cute checklist & pen for my birthday! I love a bit of stationary and this will be great for making sure that we pack everything we need.

These awesome luggage tags were part of our wedding present from my auntie! She got them for us at my Hen do, at the studio tour. They are super cool ⚑

I picked up this cute and super soft travel pillow in Primark for Β£4! I know it isn’t a long flight to Sardinia but I might as well be comfortable none the less 👍 

I hope you’ve enjoyed this little insight into my travel items, see you in a week! 

Until next time,

A Slimming World update 🍳

I thought I’d do a quick update on Slimming World since the wedding (Is she going to shut up about this wedding anytime soon? Probably not :mrgreen:)

I was maintaining for quite a while Pre wedding in order to fit into my dress and am chipping away at the weight I put on from the wedding/ the week after when I wasn’t very strict 😜 

This week I lost 1/2 a lb which you probably think was barely worth it but I had a bad  weekend (bad in terms of SW, great for my stomach) with Tim’s birthday celebrations so I was doing damage control this week, and as they say a loss is a loss after all!!

My current countdown is to this…

Our honeymoon 😍😍🇮🇹 Sardinia, Italy

Two weeks to go!!!

Two weeks to go means two more ‘weigh ins’. I’m hoping for two good loses in these weeks and there shouldn’t be anything in my way, fingers crossed.

My aim this week: 2lbs.
Next week is the last few days of term then it’s the summer holidays, so planning is going to be the key to success as well as…

– Lots of healthy yummy snacks

– Meals ready prepared 

– A list of foods that I can use my syns on

– Lots of speed foods 
Here’s hoping the week goes well, wish me luck!

Until next time, 

Roseanne 🙂
