WATER WATER WATER EVERYWHEREIt's that time again - Holiday Time!
Aaah….. my trip to New York feels like a distant memory now, and I only visited the splendor of the Big Apple two months ago. It was probably one of the most exciting, action-packed and exhausting holidays I've ever had. Consequently, it left me feeling in need of a relaxing, chilled-out break; something to act as an antidote to what has already been an eventful year. Has anyone else felt like this - a holiday has left you feeling like you need to go on another retreat, not because you have holiday-blues, just simply because you don’t feel like you've had a break?
I'm not someone who enjoys lounging around on a beach all day, every day, as that can become too monotonous. One of my favourite holidays was a Caribbean cruise because it incorporated everything that is great in a holiday: all-inclusive meals; sunshine; beaches; excursions; island hopping; Americans (they’re just so damn elated and polite aren't they); relaxation; and adventure. I used to be a bit of a sceptic when it came to cruises, wrongly assuming that they were just for the wealthy, retired folk, but the Caribbean cruise completely reversed that perception, which is why I am excited as hell to be going on another cruise this Saturday - a Mediterranean cruise this time!
Now for the
I'm a bit of a shop snob. There are certain shops that I have previously refused to frequent, but my eyes were opened last weekend when I was dragged (not quite kicking and screaming, but with a frown on my face) in to Forever 21 and Primark. In Forever 21, I snapped up some cheap and cheerful, but gorgeous shoes, and then I clapped eyes on this dress when I was in Primark; it was a bargain! The colour is quite 'adventurous' for me, but the blue does work with my water theme, right?

I look forward to blogging again and catching up with you and your blogs on my return. I’m the naughty, rebellious ‘blogger’ that refuses to blog or read blogs whilst on holiday - apologies in advance - but you can keep up to date with Forcailini/me if you wish on Twitter and Facebook.
Oh yeah I forgot to tell you, I've been coerced in to trying my hand at Instagram - go check it out: Instagram @forcailini.
