Capturing Paradise: My Week In Pics

Heeellooooo! Imma be back!! Seeing as it’s now summer and I’ve finally been released from hellish university assignments for a couple months, I thought I’d really devote some time to this ol’ thing, my blog, over the coming weeks, to really add some oomph to my content and *hopefully* make everything a lil more profesh and exciting over here.

Both travel and fashion are two things in my life that make me v v happy- and as of recent times, I’ve never really put much effort into those sections on my site, purely because I’m a skint student with little funds. However, last week I hopped on a plane with my boyfriend to the Canary Islands, for 9 days of absolute sunshine-y bliss. I was a v happy bunny. Sadly, I’m not so happy now, as I’ve just got back to dull ol’ England, but the break away was just what I needed. A lil bit of Vitamin D got me all the more pumped to get home and start rollin’ out some new ideas over here on the blog. And this is my first one.

I’m hoping to make this a regular feature if ya’ll like it: here’s my week in pics (+ a few lil extra days of my hol beforehand). Enjoy!

P.S: If you like these pics, there’s plenty more to come, as I’ve got a LOT of outfit posts/travel related content comin’ ya way in the next few weeks !!

After a full day of travelling, we arrived in Lanzarote to the most BEAUTIFUL evening imaginable. We ate possibly the best pizza ever at a local restaurant and watched the sun set over the beach. Bliss.

Thursday 22nd June 2017

After a day sunbathing (resulting in me getting extreeemely sunburnt) spirits weren’t exactly high, being a lobster n all. However, I got sent a V V EXCITIN email: I’ve been offered work experience at Heat & Closer Magazines in LDN!! Here’s me with much better spirits after that news!

Stayed in the shade ALL day. Burns no better, so covered up in the eve with this maxi skirt. Sadly, it was 29 degrees today, and therefore I was definitely roasting in this outfit. Wah.

HALLELUJAH for less burnt Maddie! Happy days!!

Sunday 25th June 2017

Finally can get in the sun again after burn fiasco. V happy about it. Drinkin’ at this amaaaaze restaurant that overlooks the sea – I’ll report all about our food adventures in another post!

Monday 26th June 2017

We visited the most quaint, perfect Spanish island today – La Graciosa. Home to only 500 people and completely untouched by tourism, I honestly wanted to move in. Pronto. [Another post to come about this idyllic place soon]

Tuesday 27th June 2017

So, we went to an open air cinema to watch Grease!!!! If you know me, you’ll know this is my perfect idea of a romantic date and I was v v excited to actually be able to visit one. Only thing that could have made it better? If they were showing LaLa Land. Goals.

Wednesday 28th June 2017

We had dinner overlooking the sun setting over the sea. It was v nice n made Maddie v happy. I love summer.

Thursday 29th June 2017

Our last evening (cries) was made a whole lot better by THIS BEAUTY of a dress from Zara. Along with me discovering the most delish chilli burger I have ever eaten in my life. Best meal ever. More to come on my outfits n food in a few more cheeky posts.

Friday 30th June 2017

Sadly, we headed home and therefore I don’t have many pics from today. Here’s a shot of my legs (that deffo looked a lot more tanned over there than they now do at home). Hope it suffices.

Saturday 1st July 2017

Today, it was my Mumma’s 50th birthday and we celebrated by travelling to my Auntie’s and having a lovely family day. A good ol’ barbecue and some wine finished the day off perfectly. More to come about my Auntie’s ADORABLE lil Cotswolds village in another post. I wanna move there. And have a holiday home in La Graciosa. That would be perf, thank you.
