Eat, Drink and Sunburn.

It's an obligation for the weather to be raining when you come back from holiday isn't it? *sigh*

I had an incredible holiday, it was so hot, and so relaxing. Which we were seriously in need of!

Where we stayed was beautiful, a little resort on the coast of a bay and the view from our balcony was breathtaking! We had a pool and loads of sun loungers, with a beach and little entertainment bit on our doorstep- perfect for us.

We successfully ate way too much, drank way too much and got sun burnt. That's what English people do on holiday right?!

A few highlights:

A bit of a silly moment haha. Ignore the gap in my fringe, ruined the photo!
Unlimited food and drink.
We were all inclusive, which means everything was included, all the time.
Amazing, when I wanted a cup of tea when I woke up, I could have one, and when we chilling out in the evening, we could have as many cocktails as possible. How cool.

Spending time with my parents, it's not too often I'm on my own with them (I have a brother) for any length of time without them working. So it was lovely. 
I think they realised how much I'd grown since uni :)
Yeah that's a skunk. And yes that's me looking particularly disgusted. And yes that's a parrot behind me!
It was part of a 'Tropical Show', which my dad volunteered me to take part in (as dads do) and the man told me to close my eyes, smell it, and guess what it was...I didn't guess a skunk.
He then threw this skunk on my lap! Hence the face. 
She was a pretty cute skunk though, called Chanel No5 haha.

I climbed the famous sandunes in Gran Canaria, which were pretty impressive.
The sand was absolutely boiling though! I took off my sandals cause they gathered too much sand whilst walking and then went to climb another dune, and was reduced to crawling because it hurt my feet too much...then it hurt my knees. A vicious circle aha.

The prettiness!
The island is very barren, but when it's's beautiful.
The sun. 

I have a holiday haul and will do an OOTN for a party tonight coming up! 
Will return all comments soon, just getting over a silly bug which I came home with.
