10 Happy Things (Holiday Edition)


Hiya, it's me again. I feel untouchable at the moment because I'm on an absolute blogging roll, let's see how long this lasts eh?

So like, holiday season is coming up as I'm sure you're all aware and for the first time in 2? 3? years I'm GOING ON HOLIDAY. In celebration of me going away in precisely two months time I wanted to put together a lil somethin' somethin' 'cos I'm dead excited, if you can't tell. Like screw the fact it's my 21st next month, just get me on a plane and out of this country as soon as please. No offence England, you're cool and all but I'm sick of seeing the same places, we need a break from each other.

Without further ado, here's a list of the ten things that make me super happy on holiday!

1. Duty Free. Need I say more? 
2. Everyone knowing you've just arrived to the resort. Because you're looking like Caspar the Friendly Ghost for approx. 10 minutes until you go a lovely shade of beetroot.
3. The breakfast buffet. There's no such thing as calories or too many carbs on holiday, pass me the croissants.
4. Lemon Fanta. You can only seem to get it abroad, and even if they do sell it here, it tastes better on holiday - am I right?
5. Getting a tan, duh. You can instantly fool everyone into thinking you've spent two weeks in the Maldives... But probably not because you'll be Instagramming your surroundings every 5 mins.
6. Summer Clothes. Finally being able to wear the bargain jumpsuit you got in last year's sale before putting it away for another year.
7. Being make up free. Unless you're super organised (or rich) and have darker shades of every face product you own, the only make up you'll be doing on holiday is your contour and your brows. Heaven.
8. Coconut scented everything. Coconut conditioner, Coconut body butter. The smell of coconut and cocoa butter literally scream holiday at me.
9. Swimming. The only time I am willing to exercise, and by that I mean doing a few laps of the pool whilst catching a fab tan. 
10. Late night kebabs. There's nothing better than walking round Hisaronu (where I'm going) late at night with a chicken kebab in hand, damn they're good.

Whilst writing this, I realised there are a lot of things I find irritating about being on holiday, ironically. But it's all good, because that means I can do another post about the things that get on my nerves so stay tuned for that! 

What are the things that you look forward to when going on your hols?

  1. Ooooh yes I totally agree with the coconut scent. I use it over the brighter months so that even if I'm not on holiday, I can *smell* like I'm on holiday :') There's def no such thing as too many carbs yas croissants

  2. I am going away soon too and I am so excited! I live for the coconut dreamy scent of holidays, but unfortunately I don't tan! But it will be great to get away and relax!

  6. I hope you have the best time (even if it isn't for a while!). I'm going to Rome in September and I'm so excited, but it definitely isn't a relaxing holiday, you can't beat a beach break :) xx

  11. Firstly, your header is just the most adorable thing I have ever seen. Secondly, I was literally sitting nodding my head in agreement with every single one of these!

    Lemon Fanta is the ultimate holiday drink. Just the thought of it gets me in a good mood! And there is little better than coconut scented hair products and lotions when you're in the sunshine.

  16. I totally agree about Lemon Fanta! I'm also the same way about Orange Fanta, they both taste way better in the crazy heat than in the rainy UK haha. I love getting to go bare-faced during the day, although I do add a bit more to my face at the evening time. And YES for summer clothing. It's so good getting to wear a pair of shorts, finally!

    1. I totally agree - they're so refreshing. I tend to just stick to the lemon one now (or Fanta Fruit Twist) as the orange one sent me hyper when I was younger haha!
      I'm so excited to get all my holiday clothes out again too! x

  17. I agree with pretty much all of these! I'm off on holiday in two week's time so I have all of this to look forward to as well!

  25. Where is Hisaronu? Cyprus is an amazing destination for summer holidays! We have lovely beaches and great nightlife here, I started going to the beach a week ago but the weather is still a little bit cold! I am travelling to Greece in two months (again) and I could not be more excited!!!

  27. Breakfast buffets on holidays just get me really excited, even if they are kinda bad, it is always the build up to it which I love and trying some new food.
