Happy Friday guys! It's actually a VERY happy Friday for me because hurraahhh I go on my holidays on Sunday! I am off to Portugal for a whole 10 days and I can't BLOODY wait! Because I am simply SO excited and can't really think about anything else, I figured I'd do a lil' "10 things I plan to do on my holidays" post! I hope you like it! xo
1. Read a book
One thing I tell myself I really want to do more of is read. I am so bad at taking time out to chill, and I think reading is something that can really help you do that! If you have any good holiday reads, I'd love some suggestions!?
2. A break from Blogging
During my 10 day break I haven't got a single blog post scheduled and I don't plan to be posting anything on here. I figured the world probably won't end if I don't post for 10 days, and I also keep telling myself I'll have lots of sunny content for when I return. I'm sure I'll still be Instagramming however!

3. Eat all the food
I love eating sea food when I'm on holiday, Paella's are my favourite. However since I am heading to Portugal I'll be sure to eat all of the Portuguese custard tarts to!
4. Take lots of Photos
And not just for blog/Instagram purposes, one of my favourite hobbies is photography, so having a beautiful location to photograph is so exciting for me! Plus I love to look back on my memories afterwards, there is something so special about having lots of holiday images to look back on. Plus I am known to be a scrap-booker so it's likely they will go to good use!
5. Beach Walks
Is there anything more relaxing than walking along the beach front with the sand between your toes (ew, toes) and the sounds of the sea gently coming and going in the background. I'd say it's my favourite thing to do abroad, and it's always one of those moments where I feel truly happy and relaxed.
6. Give my skin a break
I have found that holidays do wonders for my skin. I think because I've been in the sun all day I always make a conscious effort to moisturise my body everyday which leaves my skin SO soft (I should implement this more at home, shouldn't I!). I also find that because I wear no make-up in the day on holiday, my skin has a break and clears up!
7. Drink all the cocktails & all the sangria
Similar to the food point to be honest, but just with drink.. it deserved it's own number, right?
8. Finally use my GoPro
This is actually quite embarrassing to admit, but last June I brought a Go Pro with a John Lewis voucher, and I've not used it ONCE. ONCE. I've never really had a good opportunity to use it, or when I have, I've completely forgotten about it! So I plan on creating some fun memories with it! Any tips for a newbie would be appreciated!
One of my fave things about holidays is EXPLORING! I love heading out of the area I am staying and discovering more of the country I am visiting! I plan on taking out a few days to do this!
10. Get a pool float
Erm, have you SEEN the amazing Pool floats "floating" about.. sorry! There are unicorns, lobsters, giant doughnuts.. I could go on.
Are you off on your holidays anytime soon? I'd love to hear where you are off too, and of course what you're looking forward to the most!
See you when I'm home,
