Holiday Essentials; Part 1

Helllooo readers, I thought I'd let you into a secret. Me and Marc have planned a holiday for a week away in June, and the organised person I am, I've already been buying stuff we will need and organizing clothes, bla bla bla.

This might not be interesting to some people, but i know that some of you will be intrigued to find out what beauty/fashion items i will be taking on holiday.

Lets crack on, first things first, fashion! Clothes! I've been restraining myself, and just picking up small bits and pieces here and there, because after my exams at the end of May me and Marc are going on a huge shopping trip, to get all our main clothes and stuff. But the other day I was wondering around Primark and spotted a gorgeous Blue tye dye midi dress. Im not normally a fan of these dresses unless if im totally honest with you I've got a pair of spanx on, and in the hot weather i don't really fancy wearing a pair of them. But considering ive been trying to work out more and on a little diet, i finally feel comfortable and accept my body in one of these dresses. SO baby i went and bought one! More will be coming to the collection, but this one was gorgeous and an absolute bargain, well I thought so at just £10. The materials not too heavy, so will be perfect for hot night walks on the beach.

The next thing I picked up from primark, was a swing like camisole top, with a ditsy flower print. I've seen lots of these tops in Topshop and River Island but I think there far to expensive for a piece of flimsy clothing, they range between £20-30. But this one was £4!!! how cheap, and for on holiday I don't mind if its that price and I leave it there or it gets ruined, at least I get the wear out of it! They had lots of different colours and prints, and I will be going back for a black one and the blue and purple tye dye one.

So the next place I went too after Primark was Matalan, I don't normally shop here, but saw a bikini on line that I really liked the print and style of, so thought I'd take a visit and see if they had it in my size, and surprise surprise they did! So i picked it up, and it cost £10, £5 for the bottoms and £5 for the top. Pretty cheap I thought compared to some of my other bikinis from River Island and New Look.

Whilst I was in Matalan i also spotted a pair of black tribal sandals, a girl can never have too many sandals, especially in the summer! So i picked up a pair and these cost £10, which again i thought was a bargain for something that looked like these. They also had these in a tan colour, but i already have several tan sandals so went for something a bit more different.

Final stop was River Island, I am addicted to River Island anything they seem to bring out at the moment seems to be my style, on trend and really well designed. I have been after a new purse for a while, but fancied something different than the typical river island clutch pin top purse, and when I saw this bright green and white coin/flip purse i was sold instantly. I know its bad luck to buy your own purse but I had to have this! Its so me, so summer and so fabulous, I love it. This purse cost £17 which I thought wasn't that bad, and whilst at the till i spotted some finger tip top rings, which are again on trend and look so cute, for a pair it cost £2 which was a bargain. I've not seen these rings anywhere else other than River, does anybody else know where they sell them?

What are you summer/holiday essentials? Let me know, in the comments below.

Love Sophie
