I'm finally here! 22 days of paradise with nothing to do but relax in the sunshine and concentrate on a cracking tan! I hope I'm not rubbing it in too much as I hear the weather back home is pretty awful...so I'm definitely going to make the most of this holiday. I wasn't 100% sure I would be able to blog over here but luckily my Macbook connects to the internet at our villa and is probably quicker than our connection at home! Last night was our first night out in Puerto Banus so I wore this lightweight silk printed dress which I scavenged in the sales before I flew out. It was originally priced at £68 and was reduced to £40 so it was a great bargain as I'd had my eye on the dress for a while. I love the watercolour floral print and the use of fluorescent and dark colours which really compliment a tanned skin.

I'm always slightly dubious about wearing new heels on a night out so end up wearing the same pair all the time but I must admit these were totally comfortable and caused me no hassle. Wedges are always a safe option, especially for nights out abroad, and I love the simple gold metallic silhouette as we all know how much I love my gold! I'm spending the day in the sunshine recovering from last night, there's nothing better than floating around on a lilo and tucking into a good book to soothe a sore head. I'm currently reading 50 Shades Of Grey which just about every woman in the country is delving into! It's an interest book to say the least...anyone reading it as well at the moment?
