This post is extremely long overdue. I'm currently sitting in a hotel lobby in Boston. Tomorrow I get to move in to my uni room and I have so many blog posts in my drafts I think it's time to blitz through them all. So here goes.

At the end of July my school friends and I spent a week in the Croatian island Hvar. As I have made a habit of this summer, of course I vlogged snippets of the trip and here is the video diary of the holiday I produced -

We were in Hvar for a week and I have never visited anywhere so hot in my life. Our suffering in the heat was not helped by a lack of air con in our hotel and the only for of a cooling system being some rather worse for wear fans. Luckily we did survive.

Evening the evenings were boiling, the only time I would say I was not hot was when we stayed on the beach for the evening; and I was certainly not at all cold.

Joe ended his interrailing trip with his friends in Hvar and our time on the island crossed over by two days.

We were lucky enough to rent a boat together and spend the day driving around, dipping in and out of the sea and soaking up the sun. We did have a few incidents with the boat but I think that's a story for another time...

Almost everyday we reserved beds at a beach club called Hula Hula. The surroundings were absolutely stunning and did make the 'long' walk worth it.

Being in Hvar we felt we had to experience Carpe Diem, a club on an island. I won't go in to too much detail as I feel the pictures speak for themselves. For me, the best part of the night was belting classic sing a long songs on the boat to and from the island.

This ^ picture of Saskia sums up the whole holiday - sweaty.

On our last day we rented a boat and went to the blue and green caves. Both were absolutely stunning, with the blue cave being silent and extremely relaxing.

The trip was so much fun but would have been nothing without the company I kept, big kisses to any of my girls reading this.

Lisbon & NOS Alive

Hello there! Long time no see... Apologies for that, however, in my defence I have been rather ill this past week. 

Anyway, let us rewind a couple of weeks and look back on my trip to Portugal with Amber

This post is somewhat of a little update of what I got up to this week.

The least summery thing I did, due to it being inside, was going to the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibition at the V&A. I went with Amber and we both really enjoyed it. Not only were the clothes absolutely stunning, the presentation of the whole exhibition was beautiful. Every room was so different, with quotes on the walls and lighting and music to create different atmospheres.

Mad Hatters Brunch

Last weekend Amber and I attended a Mad Hatters Brunch. It was a rather confusing affair to begin with, as documented in my vlog which I will link at the end of this post, yet when we finally (emphasis on the finally) arrived it was so so lovely.
