Tenerife 2

  with clothing haul

I'm now back home from Tenerife. I missed England's rainy weather ;) (I'm ill atm...). I took a few last photos while I was there. I also did a little shopping in the last few days and thought I'd show you my stuff. Having breakfast in a bikini is what I really miss. I soon have to go back to school, and since I am going to a new school for A- level, I am not really looking forward to it. Starting from scratch is always hard and I know that I will have a pretty stressful school year with many tests. However I am excited to meet new people and make new experiences #cringy.
Thank you everyone who takes the time to read my blog - sending hugs out to you! Good luck to everyone who has to go back to school soon, I'm sure you'll do amazing.

 I nearly bought one of them :D

This cocktail was soooooo amazing! And I fell in love with the 'mouse' on it - I actually took it back home.

Clothing haul
Benneton - Jeans shirt (sorry its so creased - I blame the suitcase)

Benneton - T-shirt    
I love this shirt as it is quite baggy and look cool when you tuck it into jeans. I also used it as a bikini cover up and knotted it on the side and it looked supercute.

 I got these lace shorts in a tiny shop in a cute little street. It was super inexpensive (about 5 Euro) and I've been looking for a pair like that for ages. So happy!

Supercute dress from another random shop. Love the detailing on the back and the way it falls around your body. This was very cheap aswell, but the quality is surprisingly good.

My family and I decided to go to Tenerife this summer holiday. I have been looking forward to the sandy beaches and sunny days for ages, and now that I have been here for over a week I can just say it was totally worth it. The island is beautiful, the weather is amazing and I love the people here. It is truly relaxing and I have to admit I haven't done much this week, apart from relaxing on the beach with a good book (Mine has been 'This Charming Man' by Marian Keyes - boring at first but then turns into one of the most interesting and hilarious stories I've read in a while). I have also tried windsurfing for 3 days and I am still recovering from my bruises ;). It was fun but exhausting and I am not sure if I will continue learning it. My sisters and I also decided to visit the Aqua Park and I really enjoyed it, especially the dolphin show. I have always adored dolphins and I still have my massive toy dolphin at home...
I have documented some parts of my time on Tenerife. I apologise that the photos are quite random, but I had problems with my camera (black dots on the lense) so many of my photos are sadly not usable.

My favourite photo - so colourful

How is your holiday going? Have you gone anywhere exciting and if not, what are activities you enjoy in the summer? I am also looking for good books so if you have any recommondations please leave me a comment.

A break

Summer is the only time where I get a real break. A break from the stressful daily tasks we all have to cope with. It's the quiet before the storm, I am sure to encounter in september. However I am that type of person that never can truly rest. I always need something to do. In some ways this is is a blessing, although it can be quite frustrating when I know I just have a few more weeks to do absolutely nothing and still I am not capable of doing so. 
To keep myself busy I always love being creative. I love writing - hence me starting this blog. However it is only one way in which I am creative. Another way is painting, drawing or sewing - all of which are activities I greatly enjoy. 
I wanna share some of the results of my creativ outburst in the last couple of days.

I have a really embarrasing obsession with quotes that I am always convinced are related to my life...

One of my favourite things to do is finding a glass bottle and painting it with acrylics. I then use it as e.g. a vase. I just think it's such a fun way to recycle glass bottles and it just looks supercute with some flowers in it. It does require a bit of time though, as the different colour layers have to dry in between.

My glass bottle (It's my dad's, I don't drink)

I painted the bottle white to make the other colours pop, then I painted the label black

I used a light blue acrylic paint to cover the bottle (had to remove the black becuase it smudged)

I decided to paint some flowers and leaves on my bottle using acrylics - You can use any pattern of your choice. I also repainted the label black.

When it had all dried up, I used white chalk to add (another) quote to the label for a unique touch. This time I decided to write 'The earth without art is just EH'

annnnnd some flowers - these ones are fake... I believe fake flowers are so much easier to handle and they don't wilt.

I made another bottle like this with an african pattern. This time I used one of those rare coke glass bottles and didn't paint over the label.

Love you guys. Sending hugs out to everyone who reads this :)
