The Five People You Meet In Heaven

As I mentioned in my Dead Ends book review, I'm part of a Bloggers' Book Club, and this time I got to pick the book we were reading! My dad got me The Five People You Meet In Heaven by Mitch Albom for Christmas and I've been looking for an excuse to read it ever since, so this seemed like the perfect opportunity!

1: I'm still so in love with this dress from DressLink! 
2: The bugs in Spain certainly took a likening to me... I'm covered in bites 
3: An example of what holiday lunches look like every day! Think I might've put on just a bit of weight 
4: Managed to find a fake Triangl bikini for just €14! 
5: We went to visit the beach and stumbled up some peacocks and saw some baby ones hatching from eggs and it was a magical experience 
6: I've actually only really used my Kindle this holiday, I've converted to the dark side of eReaders!

Week in Pictures #6

1: On our terrace there were rocking chairs that were the cosiest little things you could imagine, I've spent many evenings watching the world go by from up here! 
2: Mum and I have a little balcony and I couldn't resist taking a picture of the view at night 
3: We bought an inflatable Dolphin and mum managed to catch a picture of me riding it... I look so pale! 
4: My nana looked after my younger brother and sisters one evening so mum and I could go out for a meal together, it was lovely! 
5: We've played cards pretty much every night so far. Wish I could say I've been winning... 
6: Picture of the pool and a bit of the view! 
7: Sleepy cuddles in the evening for mum with my two little sisters and my little brother in the corner 
8: These sorbet ice lollies were my favourites as a kid on holiday and we found some at a restaurant - I couldn't resist!

What To Expect From Glastonbury Festival

For those of you who don't know, I recently went to the one and only Glastonbury Music Festival for the first time! I had an amazing time and it really was an experience like nothing else, so I thought I'd write up a post explaining what to expect from going to Glastonbury for those of you who who have never been! In case you didn't know, Glastonbury Festival takes place from Wednesday to Monday over the last weekend of June every year. It is in a small town called Pilton near Glastonbury in the South West of England, which conveniently for me, is only about 30 minutes from my house! I'm not sure how well known Glastonbury is around the world but I'm guessing from the amount of BBC coverage and the artists who perform there that it's a pretty big deal in the UK at least, not just in the area that I live in. So, given that there's a lot of hype around Glastonbury each year, it can be hard to tell how much of it is exaggerated, or what the festival is really like. So, what can you expect from Glastonbury Festival?

Week in Pictures #5

1: I made my friend take this photo while I was driving because I thought it was such a pretty sunset 
2: Later on that evening we ended up ordering 3 sundaes between the two of us and they were all delicious. No regrets. 
3: Somehow ended up with a free day between Glastonbury and Prom and my holiday AND there was nice weather, so I actually spent time in the garden with a book?!
4: Prom time! These are my 3 friends who I went on holiday with last year and who I love a whole lot 
5: This is my friend Adam who offered to be my date for the evening and got just a little bit drunk and adorable 
6: SO many selfies. So many. 
7: My friend Patrick, who doesn't actually go to my school anymore so it was lovely to see him! We also went on an adventure the next day, feeling a little bit worse for wear but I didn't get any pictures of that 
8: We finished off the evening with some fireworks and all in all, it was a lovely way to say goodbye 
9: The school my little brother and sisters go to had a Prize Giving Day and it was decorated like a beach hut, with buckets and spades and seagulls and it was so cute

What's In My Travel Make Up Bag?

I'm going on holiday in a few days and am in the process of packing my make up bag for while I'm gone, so I thought I'd share with you today what I've packed with me so far! Just a side note that I'm bringing all three of my Naked palettes - yes, I know that's excessive! - but they don't leave much room for anything else when they're in this make up bag so they're going in my case separately, so of course I forgot to include them in this picture! I also haven't got around to cleaning my brushes yet so I'm not including them in this post either!
