I hope everyone is having a good start of the month! How is it May already??

Follow Your Dreams

It’s my birthday MONTH and I’m very excited about this. May is my favourite! The start of summer, the weather is on the up and everyone is just plain happier in general!

So, after months of counting down, the home stretch is now on for our Honeymoon. Just a few more days left and we are off! Where?? Still no idea! Apparently I’ll be told on the day and not a minute sooner. What I’ve been told already is that it’s a sun destination and pack accordingly……. To be fair, the not knowing has taken a huge amount of stress of the whole thing. I’m a planner by nature so if I knew where we where going I’d have every day booked solid. I’m not worried about anything because…. I know of nothing to worry about!! I highly recommend this for any bride and groom. For him, I’d say he’s mega stressed. Good thing he only “helped” plan a wedding πŸ˜‚

Over the Easter Bank Holiday we started shopping and for the May Bank Holiday we finished it. See what IΒ have already here.

This time we went to Lakeside Shopping Centre as they have a HUGE Primark! God I love a good Primark / Penny’s. It’s also in Essex, innit whaa…. πŸ˜†

A Tank Top for Β£2.50, got any more?

I picked up a whole load of tank tops, string tops and loose t-shirts! Primary has loads of cool summer ware in at the moment so I was over the moon to SLOWLY stroll through every isle! Cue him having a mental breakdown…..

What I had already was lots of blacks, blues, whites and tans. So this was the colour palette I was trying to keep in mind when buying the basics for our trip.

Another tank with Elephants…. Β£2.50… You try to walk past this!

I also have a black swimsuit and a teal one. So I wanted things I could throw over them for lazy pool days. I have been promised a few of these. If the boy doesn’t come through….


I am also in LOVE with chokers at the moment and picked this Aldo one up for Β£4 in their Bank Holiday Sale. Winning!!

Jump suit

One thing on the list I wanted to get was a small bag. I lack small bags! I’m a Mary Poppins kinda gal. Big bags are in abundant round our neck of the woods. I like having the kitchen sink handy…. I mean you never know….. Packing light for this holiday was something I promised myself I’d do! With that in mind I wanted a small bag with zips that could be thrown over my shoulder and easy to carry…..

Already listing what I cannot fit in here…….

I have a number of shorts already but I really fancied a cute denim pair….. The lace did it for me and for Β£12 it wasn’t nice leaving them behind…..

There also high waited……

Himself also let slip it’s at least an 11 hour flight…………………………… Yikes, that did not make my guessing game any easier. It did make me ever so slightly more excited!!! So with a long flight in mind, and because I’ve always wanted one, I picked up this neck comforter for Β£5.

No idea why but I always find these super fancy when I see others with them on flights! Hey, I’m in that gang now πŸ˜‚

Everything is from Primark excpet the Choker from Aldo….. Primark whore, yup! #Proud!

So that’s me set! Ready for my holly bops!!! Clothes wise anyway. I only have to wait 7 more days!!!! Yikes!!!

The next major item on my list now is holiday books! If anyone has any suggestions please let me know. So far on the list I have:

  • The Girls – Emma Cline
  • 13 Reasons Why – Jay Asher
  • How to be a Bawse – Lilly Singh
  • My Story – Jo Malone
  • Strong Woman – Karren Brady

I’d love a bit of smut now to even this out, or something light and funny! Let me know what I need to look out for!!

Lots of Love….

Mrs S.
