Lanzarote 2017

Lanzarote 2017

So If you’re not following me on instagram (melia_may) then you won’t know that I’ve been in lanzarote for the past week, To be honest it’s all I’ve posted about. We flew out last Saturday early morning so we still had time to dump all our suitcases and stuff in the villa and go straight down to the pool to sunbathe. To be honest that’s all I’ve done all week. Got to make the most of the sun! It was so good to get away and have a little break away from work and just things in general and now that I’m back I can’t wait to get back into the swing of things, Especially my blog. Through-out the week I’ve also been filming little bits and pieces and I am hoping to be putting up a youtube video of my trip this week sometime. I’ve always wanted to get into youtube but have always been too scared, The thought of putting your self out there like that is kinda scary but recently I’ve been thinking more and more about it and decided this was a good opportunity to give it ago. In other terms, I thought ‘screw it, Why the hell not!?’

Also, Whilst I was in Lanzarote I picked up a few beauty products which I will be posting about soon with a review of each. Lanzarote is known for its aloe vera products so I thought it would be rude not to pick up a few bits. So for now I’ll leave you with a few pictures of the trip..I will update you when the video goes live! If anyone has any tips and advice on youtube please post below, I’d love to hear some!

Visiting Devils Bridge | Holiday: Part 2

Visiting Devils Bridge | Holiday: Part 2

So even though I am home eating a huge bar of Cadbury’s dairy milk and feeling sorry for myself, I thought it was about time I did Part 2 post of my holiday as I have a ridiculous┬áamount of pictures I wanted to share on here. (Part 1 is here btw). So the last three days in wales went stupidly quick. On thursday we decided to visit Devils Bridge, I had searched for places to visit prior to the holiday as I wanted to see as much as I could so I knew it would be a good day out but I wasn’t expecting it to be quite as beautiful as it was. You get a little map before you enter, which takes you basically round in a big circle, Walking though beautiful woods, seeing amazing views from above the trees to standing right under the waterfall. They also had one of these…. I think i could definitely pull this outfit off, Right? Such a typical tourist arent I….

One thing I wasnt expecting was the steep steps. I’ve never see anything like it! I was hanging on to the railings for dear life whilst Danny bounced down the steps like they were nothing, also taking pictures of me in the process.

I have to say, The easy part was walking down all those steps as I was rather hard climbing back up, my legs hurt way too much the next day.

On friday, It was pretty much our last full day. We relaxed in the morning, Had a huge lie in, Then made the most of the swimming pool and jacuzzi before we left. As it was our last day, We decided to have one last walk on the beach. Theres something so peaceful about the beach where we were stopping. There was hardly any one around and you just kinda forgot about everything. Although one thing you had to watch out for was huge flipping’ rocks that a literally ankle twisters.

we decided that the best way to end the holiday was to have a cosy little movie night, So thats exactly what we did! nothing better than having a cosy movie night when the weathers crap outside and all you do is eat crisps and chocolate. A great end to a great holiday.

ooo PS. I have a new twitter dedicated to my blog and my daily life so check that out here. I think this means I’m ‘Down with the kids’?

Best Sunset I’ve Ever Seen | Holiday: Part one

Best Sunset I’ve Ever Seen | Holiday: Part one

I’m currently lying in bed with the sun shining though the windows with danny cooking a fry up, the smell of bacon is pretty strong right now..mmm

Ahh well lets say its been a typical english holiday… Rain, sun, cloud and so on. When we first arrived it was absolutley tipping it down so it was abit of a gloomy start to the holiday, but by the time we had unpacked our suitcases and got every thing sorted it was pretty late so we went to bed. Next day didnt start to well either, it was cloudy and drizzley so we decided it would be a good opputunity to go to check out the pool. We was in there for a while sat in the jecuzzi, relaxing also teaching danny how to doggy paddle, he got the hang of it, kinda. By the time we got out the sun decided it wanted to come out so we had a few ciders by the sea. Feeling a little giddy, we made our way down to the beach for a little stroll. Ah dear i’ve made us sound like 80 year olds. Anyway we ended up taking way too many photos but it was just so beautiful the pictures probably dont give it enough justice…. 





Excuse my face, I had no makeup on and had a few too many thatchers 


Next day we set off to abersystwyth. It was meant to be 1 1/2 miles away, but to my little legs it felt like it was 1000 miles. Walking back was the worst.. More on that later though. The one upside to walking was the views… It was breathtaking, I have got pictures on my camera but we have to internet on my laptop to I can’t get them on my phone. So off we went into aberystwyth. We had a little look around and went in a few shops. We found an AMAZING sweet shop. They had so much stuff in there and so many american sweets. We even found a DUFF energy drink, we literally lost our s**t when we saw it, how cool does it look though…. 

 

We had some fish and chips in the same place we did 4 years ago when we first came here, best fish and chips ever. We had a little walk around aberyswyth castle and did a little more shopping before we walked back so we had a few bags to carry aswell, big mistake. The hill is incredibly big and it seems I must be incredibly unhealthy because I had to keep stopping because I was out of breath. That might be down to the fact we’ve had fry-ups every day but ahwell we’re on holiday! So once we finally made it up the hill and I had regained my breath we carried on back to we’re we were stopping, when I got back I laydown and didnt move untill the following day. Lazy, I know I know. So the following day we stayed by the caravan, went for a walk on the beach, skimmed some stones, poorley might I add. We just kinda relaxed. Then around 9pm is was still warm enough for shorts so we made our way down to the beach for a little walk. We ended up seeing possibly the best sunset we’ve ever seen…. 



After that we went back to the caravan, listened to some UB40, played some cards ( I won, of course) and chilled out. Which brings me to now, thursday morning and my fry ups ready, see ya!
