As in FIFTY days that I have left of my internship and life on the island... that scares the s*** out of me, honestly. It's going to be the weirdest feeling leaving this place and all the people behind and knowing I'm never gona have the kind of lifestyle I've had here ever again. Going back to being a student in Manchester, UK is kind of exciting too :) and I think I can start planning all the amazing things I can do in all the places I'm travelling to in June!

I've been busy busy busy this week, work's been crazy recently as we are getting ready for the PGA Heritage golf tournament that starts in the resort tomorrow and the whole island is going to be a madhouse (literally) for the next seven days. So my time and energy to blog hasn't been very good in the past few days..

Just wanted to share a few exciting photos (I'LL BE IN CALIFORNIA IN TWO MONTHS!) ...and I'm off to a cinema date with a friend. I've heard the Source Code is really good sooo it's HELLO Jake Gyllenhaal tonight :)

Hope you had a great weekend

latest obsessions

One. Ice lollies (or should I say Popsicles)
Every time the weather gets hot enough my diet consists of mainly ice lollies. Healthy much? At least that stops me from buying a tub of Ben&Jerry's and eating it on one go...

Two. ASOS mid-season sale.
Do I need to say any more about this?
And free delivery plus returns in the US. YES PLEASE! waiting for my package to arrive... should be here by April 21st :)

Three. Nestle's Hot Chocolate
I'm not even a big fan of hot chocolate but this one is just perfect - mix with water but it's still lovely rich and amazing <3 would love some marshmallows for the cup I've just got next to me!!

Four. Bright coloured handbags
Honestly, such a great way to lighten up your wardrobe :) Loving the yellow one!

Five. WeHeartIt
All these amazing pictures, I could spend hours just browsing through it :)

retail therapy

I've had my eye on a lot of stuff on Asos recently and I've just decided to order some lovely bits for the summer instead of being sensible and saving for travelling.. and I haven't been shopping in absolutely AGES so I guess I can treat myself every once in a while ;)

so now I'm just waiting for a package to arrive.. and it will contain some lovely pieces including the top below <3

Now I'm gona put some more suncream on and head back to the pool!

just can't get enough

Two days off, forecast two days of sun - perfect combination and hello tan :) So looking forward to doing absolutely nothing the next couple of days... I ended up working just over 102 hours during the last two weeks and I'm only supposed to do 80!

Loving this song right now...

Top & shoes Topshop
Shorts H&M

It's officially the hottest day of the year on the island!! When I opened the front door to quickly pop into the shop to get some food I was actually shocked by the temperature and the humidity.. but that means it's almost summer again :) Gotta love the 88F heat (that's about 31 degrees celcius)and hope it's still hot tomorrow as it's my day off woo!

The outfit is what I wore earlier today but now I need to jump into the shower and I'm off to work for the evening!

wedge wedge

So yes I've been kind of obsessed with wedges lately...

I currently own one pair of gorgeous wedges but would love someone to just donate me some more.. maybe the above ones from! Can't wait to return to my beloved Manchester so I get the chance to browse through so so many second hand shops and flea markets for some bargains.. and to drool over everything in Topshop!

I've just remembered I've got a gift card to Victoria's Secret, hoping to spend it sometime next week :)

wish i could turn back time

Just a quick one - I'm home for lunch and I've got a bit of time before going back to work to do my actual shift! The morning training was an interesting one, we talked about customer service, all the different expectations customers might have and how to do that little extra to ensure they return even if something went wrong during their stay at the resort.

And linking that to holidays and exploring new places, I wanted to share a picture of one of the most beautiful cities I've ever visited... Venice, Italy. I had a summer job on a campsite by the sea about 30 minutes boat ride from Venice and spent countless days off just walking around in the amazing city :) good memories of one of the best summers of my life, and boy I wish I was as tanned as I was at the end of that summer in Italy!!

Have a great day,

lust have

I'm so in love with these Topshop heels...

I sunbathed maybe a bit too long today... pinkish face despite all the suncream and I've got a customer service training session at 8.30am plus an evening shift tomorrow although I feel like hiding my face till it returns to its normal colour!! oh dear dear me

summer wishlist/perfect wardrobe part three

I love having Sunday nights off, relaxing and getting ready for the coming week! So after finishing work for the week (after 53.5 hours, cant believe it... it went really quick as we are getting busier and busier every day!) I took over the sofa and been watching TV, catching up on my blog reading list and just chilling! the only downside of today was the fact that I discovered about 20 mosquito bites all over my legs when I got home!!! It's just ridiculous, I mean I worked for 8 hours INDOORS so there must have been a very thristy little mosquito (or two) after my blood... and now my legs are very itchy and look like I've got chicken pox! So no outfit photos taken this afternoon.. my legs look so bad couldn'n even make it to the gym :(

To cheer myself up I had a loooong look around on some of my favourite online shops to get some ideas for a perfect summer wardrobe :)

Would love to be able to buy a whole new wardrobe for the summer!!! Have you got any favourite pieces?

I've got a day off tomorrow and I'm planning on starting the day with a nice long gym session (actually will have to see first the state my legs are in..) then working on my portfolio for a little bit and finally booking some last bits for my travels in June. NINE weeks of placement left yay!



PS. Got some exciting news for next September when I'm moving back to the UK... moving in with one of my best friends!! It's going to be amazing and so much fun living with her :)
