I had attempted to go on holiday to Portugal back in May, where it decided to torrential rain the entire week we were there. Came home three days early. Pale.
So last weekend, desperately seeking sun, we decided – perhaps in a slightly unstable, yet I like to think spontaneous mindset – to go to Spain for a long weekend. The Sheraton Salobre resort in Gran Canaria provided the perfect pink desert retreat to show off my favourite Marni sandals and get us sufficiently burnt in the process. We managed to snag a cabana on our last day which made leaving even more painfull and with the addition of a trip to the spa and fully stocked breakfast buffet, I wished I could have stayed longer.

MYKONOS

I spent last week in Mykonos, Greece.

I’ve been to parts of Greece before, but this was definitely the most scenic place I’ve been yet with it’s classically Greek blue and white architecture enhanced by incredible sunscapes every evening at golden hour. We had the most relaxing time, mostly spent drinking a lot of prosecco and eating a lot of great Greek food. That and some scorching heat is really all I need on holiday.

We stayed at Cavo Tagoo, which played host to the most insane breakfast scenes, complete with an entire pastry and dessert table laid out every morning, which we went to bed eagerly thinking about every evening. We also ate at their Japanese restaurant Kiku on our last night, which definitely deserved a round of applause.

We were lucky enough to enjoy a selection of great meals whilst on Mykonos: one of the most memorable was lunch spent at Kiki’s taverna (without electricity), of which we had heard good things. It looked down over a pretty, secluded beach set in a little cove, and by the time we had finished our meal, a queue was forming.

Between various intervals spent eating, we tried to allocate some time to culture – must see’s include the island of Delos (an ancient archaeological site) and the beautiful whitewashed Church of Panagia Paraportiani (pictured above).

The only regret? I never did meet the infamous Mykonos pelican…

Flowers To Go

Stopped by the gorgeous The Fresh Flower Company today to get prepped for tomorrows festivities. Got my hands on some pretty blooms – they have a really unusual selection here, the best in SE22 if you ask me – unfortunately the comedy hand does not come included, sorry to disappoint. This mild weather is giving me the heebie-jeebies, I think I’ll snooze my alarm until winter decides to show.HalloweenPumpkin

Ciao from my Italian getaway to Puglia, feat. the cities of Lecce, Otranto and Gallipoli! Along with some serious heat, we also encountered some seriously angry thunderstorms, bringing down the ‘holiday’ (cc. Madonna circa 1983) morale a little at times but never defeating it entirely.  And now, the summer is officially over. Cue weep.

P.s. The granny pants on the washing line might be my favourite picture of all time…
