SUMMER HOLIDAY SHOP//

This summer seems to be lasting aaaaages, which is great although I've probably just jinxed that for us all, sorry. I'm finally going on holiday in a couple of weeks so thought I'd share a few things I've bought specially for the sunshine!

(I apologise for the random array of photography, I have not even thought about organising my things or packing yet, it was as and how I found them!)



Adidas - Jersey Duffel £45

This barrel bag is just beautiful. Really simple, classy design and I also got a bargain because my friend got me a huge discount, which always makes things even lovelier.

Perfect for the gym but I was going to use it as hand luggage, hopefully it's the right size...




H&M Bikini Sets £4/£5 (sale)


I've wanted some new swimwear for a while but apparently now is the right time to buy them, every high street shop seems to have bikinis on sale.




I picked up a simple grey set (above right) which has a clasp fastening, the only negative is although it are stated as a 'push-up' bikini, there is an
extraordinary amount of padding in cups lower than a C. I am very happy with my tiny boobs H&M, please leave them be.


Another caught my eye because it has stunning colours, very neon and summery. I have a thing about hummingbirds so obviously I couldn't resist it. It also has a clasp fastening (as did most of the ones I came across in H&M) and it would be easy enough to wear this one as a bandeau. Unfortunately they didn't have the matching bottoms so I picked up some bright blue which I think will go pretty well and they were mega cheap.








H&M Floral Beach Cover-Up £5 (sale)

H&M was spot on for holiday shopping this year. I found this gorgeous grey dress which will be ideal for wearing during the day, probably over the bright bikini.

It has an elasticated waist and tie fastening which means it is ideal to throw on whilst on the beach and it was a FIVER. My friend picked up a plain blue one for the same price so we were chuffed with those.









Clarks Scent Lily Sandals £24.99 (sale)

I love love love these 60s inspired platform sandals. I'm gonna be honest, when I first saw them I was a bit intimidated but I think I'm gonna be wearing them constantly on my holiday.

They are super comfortable because they don't feel as high as they look (platform's are the way to go for clumsy people!) They'll go with a lot of my summer wardrobe because I tend to stick to block colours or patterns.




Barry M - Foil Effects £3.99

I actually bought this last year and it has mysteriosuly vanished and I think may have ended up in my sister's beauty bag instead. Siblings, eh.

All time favourite Barry M nail colour, it looks amazing, it dries REALLY quickly and goes with everything. It also comes in gold if you prefer, but this looks a lot nicer in the sun in my opinion.

Boots have a 'Buy one get one half price' on selected Barry M polishes so I snapped up this and a lemon yellow gelly one which I have yet to try.





It's a random collection of holiday things but these are what I'm loving most at the minute and I think will be loving when I get to Turkey!
