Where I'll be for the next week...

So a few of you know that I'm heading off on holiday tomorrow to Sicily for a week (I've only mentioned it, like, a billion times.ha ha). I can't wait! I've been checking the weather all week and it's jumping between 30oC and 35oC...which is very hot for a Scottish lass like me but I've stocked up on my factor 40 SPF (I know that seems high but I can't stand burning my skin and at least this way, I will tan gradually). I love having a tan but I'm not willing to risk skin cancer or ageing my skin prematurely to get one!There are far two many gorgeous self tanner products out there to be doing that so there's no excuse anymore. I have posted a pic above of the view from the villa we have rented...you can see the volcano, Mount Etna in the background...it's supposed to glow at night! How cool is that?! We are supposed to be going on a sunset jeep ride up the volcano which I'm really looking forward to!


I have also posted pics above of the hilltop villa we have rented so you can get an idea of where I will be for the next week (me..smug? never!). It is private so we get the terrace with a BBQ all to ourselves so that will be great for chilling out in the evenings. I will let you know how I got on when I get back and there will hopefully be alot of Duty Free haulin' going on too (the boyfriend may not be too happy about being dragged around duty free but hey ho!) .

They also have alot of exclusive clothes and make-up boutiques in the town we are staying in so I will also check out the brands they have in those shops to see if I can find anything exciting and new! If I do, I will buy a couple of each and do a contest (I have promised to do this when I hit 100 followers so tell all your friends to follow me and the contest will be held sooner rather than later!ha ha). I'm planning on doing a rather generous contest so keep your eyes peeled for that...

  3. Looks lovely, you lucky thing! And I'm glad to hear about the SPF 40, it makes me sick that people still burn or even worse, go on sunbeds. Hello cancer and premature wrinkles! Have a lovely time, I'm sure you will! xx

  4. I know, some people can be really bad about putting on sun lotion...I have seen some people recently who've been on one two many sunbeds and their skin looks like leather! I won't allow that to happen to me!ha ha
