Anyway, Turkey was great! Really hot, which my pale skin just adored, and pretty! Look, here is a Temple!
I know, right? It's a Temple! Of Apollo! We also saw a tortoise. A WILD tortoise!
And hurrah for the sea.
My holiday was dramatically improved by the following items:
BHS polka-dot swimsuit, £20
SO CUTE. And flattering. I loved how it was a halter-neck, so was very strap-mark friendly, and when I was out of the pool, it was super-easy to convert to a strapless cossie. And, no wobbly tummy issues! Perfect. When did BHS get so good?
Mine was £5 from Glastonbury, and is actually made of hemp! So apt. But this kind of saved my life, as it was SO HOT that I would have just burnt to a crisp. And what's worse than a burnt scalp? Um, nothing, that's what. Plus, it kind of made me feel like a cowgirl.
Toni & Guy Beach Curl Spray, £5ish.
Everyone loves these sprays at the moment, and while I'm desperate to try the Bumble & Bumble version, I can't spend £17 on it, I just can't. But I took this out with me, and OMG, my hair has never looked so good. I chucked it on when it was wet and by the time I'd finished breakfast it was all dry and curly and pretty. Amazing. I was almost as happy with it as with my loved and lost John Frieda spray. I am very curious to see if it works the same kind of magic in English conditions. But for holidays - ESSENTIAL.
Okay, time to do the nail-paintings and then go to bed. I am taking way too much stuff.
See you in about a week for my own little guide to surviving Glasto! (if I do)
