My summer highlights

Another summer post, this time about my own personal summer highlights! So previous to SATC2 being released I had been obsessed by the thought of going to Egypt; the pyramids, the culture and of course to ride a camel ;) ...although after being influenced by the film my wanderlust turned toward Morocco (the Souk markets in the film got me!) ...So that is where I ended up in June having my very own "Arabian Princess" experience!

I went with my friend Kairo (yes true, Chinah and Kairo - funny and unlikely coincidence) and we stayed at the Club Hotel Riu Tikida Dunas in Agadir -we decided to not stay in Marrakesh as its an inland city so has no beach!
I have to be honest and say our hotel was incredible and our only let down was our rep from Thomas cook, apart from him - no complaints! Excellent hotel staff, food, rooms, pool and beach!
Although I must also say; the opportunities and excursions offered by Thomas Cook were like the hotel - incredible. We decided to take up three of the trips, Camel riding, a trip to the Souks with dinner etc in Marrakesh and a Fantasia dinner experience!

Having a dim moment when back home in England I managed to forget the code on my iphone, therefore had all my data wiped and lost the majority of our holiday photos! (literally devastating) Though here are some of the photos I had taken on my digital camera...

Camel riding! Awesome experience - definitely recommend. Jumpsuit  - Zara, Shoes -  Toms, Sunglasses - Topshop.

 (excursion provided by T.Cook - 100% worth the money)
Lots of food, lots of dancing, music, acrobats etc... 

Fantasia Dinner Show.. one of the entertainers
The outfits were amazing - so intricate!

Both Kairo and I managed to get a lantern on our day trip
into Marrakesh, I also got a real Moroccan leather pouffe!

Snake charmers!
Headband and Jumpsuit both River Island.

My favourite outfit Kairo wore on the trip: Dress - River Island, Wedges - Aldo.

Favourite outfit I wore: Dress - Topshop, Shoes - Bianca Christian Louboutin.

I was lucky enough and worked hard enough (39 hrs some weeks!) to get away again for some pre-uni sun in Greece! I stayed with a friends Dad in Thessolonika, a lovely town on a pinicular on the mainland of Greece. Much to my pleasure one of the local beaches had Jet Skiis (I am a watersport junkie, and had only been on a jet skii once before - also in Greece) so we took up that offer and also the opportunity to go on a BOARD. Top reccomendation PAGA PIO BISCUIT ICE-CREAM.
There were no special purchases were made in Greece, most shops are more tourist based with tacky trinkets, although this made it the perfect destination to add to my magnet collection grabbing a turtle with wiggly legs! :-)

Outfits worn to ANGEL club in Thesseloniki Greece.
L-R. Orange lipstick - Revlon, Earrings, Top and Shorts - Topshop.
Earrings - Gift, Top and Belt - H&M, Skirt - Bershka.
Earrings - Gift, Top - Bershka, Shorts - H&M.

Best swimsuit day! L-R: Pink & Coral (cut out sides) floral - Primark.

Now for the excitement of winter; Halloween, Bonfire night, Christmas... and my birthday! Yippee!
