Thursday Treats: Summer Holiday Dreamin’

June 6, 2013


I’ve gotta tell you, I’m quite excited because this week Gala, Shauna and I booked flights to Santorini for Gala’s 30th birthday! We’re going to spend a few days there then we’ll be hopping on the ferry over to Mykonos for a blissful three nights in a five star hotel… I know, it’s totally extravagant, but it is Gala’s birthday and after a crazy-busy and Blogcademy-filled 2013 I think we all deserve a good holiday! I can’t wait to lie on the beach, drink and eat way to much and just generally lay like broccoli for a week.

Would you believe I haven’t had a proper Summer holiday for years… like, I can’t even remember the last time. Are you going on a Summer holiday this year?
