Girly holiday to Bournemouth, day 1!

I'm sorry that you've had to wait for this next post, things have been so hectic because of my holiday to Bournemouth! I went for four days with my three friends Zoë, Katie and Emma for a girly holiday, for a chance to destress and get away from reality for a while. And I had the best time ever! It was also a chance for us to grow closer as friends, and we certainly did that! I've actually got a sour throat now from all the gossiping, laughing and singing that have taken place over the last four days! These three are also very supportive of this blog, and so to my delight agreed to help and appear in the next couple of posts.

I unfortunately couldn't taken my baby (my Canon 550D) with me, so I had to settle for my Lumix digital camera. Its not too bad as it is 12 megapixels, but I've got so used to the fine quality to my Canon that I did miss it a bit. But never mind! Onwards to the clothes and our antics in Bournemouth!

Topshop Shorts

As soon as we arrived on Monday we headed for the beach as it was literally just down the road! Our hotel was in a great central location, which meant we saved a lot of money on taxi fares! Plus the walking helped us tone up, which was definitely a benefit! The weather was on our side thankfully, so I went for a relaxed yet fun beach look. As you know I love colour, and this new top that I got from a recent H&M haul has its fair share of it! This is a great top if you want to perk up an outfit, and I just love the monkey print on it, with the colours tying in with the neon trend! I put them with my faded orange shorts from last season. I find Topshop denim is always a great fit in me, and this pair were great to put with the top without being overpowering! 

My rucksack was my holiday essentials bag that fills my love for studs! Its not real leather, but is made of a good durable material and fits a lot in it! The studs also kept any sneaky pickpockets away ;)

Meet Emma!
After our trip to the beach we came back, changed and headed to Harry Ramsden's who do some of the best fish and chips I've ever tasted! Emma is from Hollywood, so we wanted to give her the true British experience, and what better way to start it off than with fish and chips by the sea! 

Yummy Knickerbockerglory!
We then went for a stroll on the pier, and up and down the sea front to burn off all the calories we'd put on ;)

One of the benefits of the sea is having free salt spray for your hair! So to make the most of this, I plaited my hair loosely during the day, went in the sea, let it dry naturally, so later on when I took it out, I had pre-made beach waves! All I needed to do was run my fingers through to loosen them up a bit, add a spritz of hairspray, and I was ready to go!
