Lil Miss Summery: Back from Zante!!

Hi guys! I'm finally back from Zante, Greece.

I had the most amazing time; I went with my sister and my friends to lovely Greece. If you like clubbing and super hot weather - I urge you to check out Zante.

We went clubbing for 7 nights in a row - and mostly until 5am! It was exhausting but super fun. Unfortunately, I became quite ill during the last few days (my body was telling me to slow down lol!) We also went to a water park, visited the Blue Caves and the gorgeous Shipwreck beach.

Here are some photos of the trip:

 Outside our hotel, we stayed at Hotel Margarita which was all inclusive! I would highly recommend it!
Our first night clubbing :)
 I ended up tying up my hair - it was too hot inside!
On the lilo - think someone pushed me over after this photo was taken lol
My best friend and I kissing my sister lol
We were called the craziest girls in Zante lol!
Water Park!
 My dare was to take a photo with a random guy lol. We played dares all night - it was so much fun!
Pouting of course

 Me in a £3.99 HM dress!
Me about to jump on a turtle.
Plaits for a night out - there's a first time for everything!

I was really ill this night so I wasn't bothered to do my makeup. I didn't wear fake lashes - and I felt far more comfortable without them!

We had t-shirts made for our trip, with nicknames on the back!

 This was the ultimate clubbing holiday! I loved the music in the clubs.The people were very friendly, especally the Greek people, we all made some lovely friends! This is one place I would definitely go back to!

 Has anyone been to Greece before?

:)Lil Miss Pondering: In and Out =

I'm back with my Ins and Outs :) June was a mammoth month for me - I had so many exams!! I'm so glad it's over! 

I seriously love going to restaurants - I think I spend a lot of my money on food! My idea of a night out is to eat at a lovely restaurant and then maybe drink at a bar. My favourite restaurants are Vapiano, Ping Pong, Pizza Express and Desperados (mostly for the non-alcohol cocktail though!) I really want to try and explore other places to eat. Source.

 I've recently been enjoying clubbing again - after disliking it for ages! The best thing about clubbing is the dressing up - but also walking down Leicester Square at night time; it's so beautiful and busy! One of the worst things about clubbing is the journey back home - but taking a cab solves the problem.  The photo above is from a recent night out :)

Summer dresses:
I purchased a few summer dresses from Primark for my holiday. To be honest, I didn't go crazy! I just prefer to chill during the day, and I did not want to be spending mammoth amounts on clothes just for a holiday! I seriously love pretty little floral dresses, as opposed to shorts and a t-shirt! Source

Being confident:
With exams looming (especially practical exams), I needed a little bit of confidence. I've always been shy and reserved around people I've never met (and some intimidating people) but talkative with my friends. I've started listening to the 'I can make you confident by Paul Mckenna' and it has definitely helped me open up. It definitely helped me with my practical exams, and now I feel less uneasy when approaching people :) Source

Yay Exams are over - but June was plagued by them! It was super stressful - I noticed I was comfort eating a lot and not exercising. I need to go back to my old routine of working out at least 3 times a week and eating healthily. The stress has played havoc on my skin - which was doing well and then decided to break out grrr! Source.

I can't think of any more Outs.. I'm so glad I'm done with June 2011 - it was super tough!
Now I've got summer 2011 to look forward to :) WOOO!!

What are your Ins and Outs?

Lil Miss Adventurous: Makeup I'm taking on holiday! +

Hi guys! Sorry I've been MIA.. my exams have literally just finished! I feel like I'm back to being happy again :) Blogging more often will now commence - yay!

To celebrate end of exams, I'm going on holiday on Tuesday morning to Zante, Greece with my sister and my friends :)

My makeup usually gets ruined on holiday so I'm taking this lunch bag to keep it cool. When I get to my destination I will be putting the lipsticks in the fridge for extra protection!

I know I'm taking loads - I will actually remove some makeup from the bag as I feel like I'm taking too much! Conversely, I am going for 7 nights and will be going clubbing every single night, therefore it is needed. LOL

Anyone going on holiday this year? x
