To celebrate our first wedding anniversary, Blair and I booked a week in Corfu - our Big Fat Greek Honeymoon Part 2 if you will. It was organised aaaaaaages ago, so we'd been looking forward to it for most of the year and it didn't disappoint.
We were staying at the Grand Mediterraneo Hotel & Spa, via Thomson. It was the first time I'd gone on a package holiday since the days when I went with my parents, so it was a nice change not having to worry about things like working out how to get to the hotel from the airport. It was also the first time we'd ever gone All Inclusive, and now we've done it I don't think I could go back to just bed & breakfast again! Yes to all of the cocktails, and to the entire dessert selection at the evening buffet.
Looking in my wardrobe as I was unpacking after my holiday, I realised that I basically had nothing to wear for the autumn/winter season. I'd spent so much time looking for holiday clothes in the last few months that I hadn't got round to buying anything suitable for the colder weather. What a perfect excuse to do some shopping!
I went to Primark after work one evening last week but wasn't that impressed to be honest and only came away with 2 pairs of boots and a cardigan. My online shopping sessions have been much more successful though, and I've found loads of great looking A/W pieces, and have placed a few orders (I might do a haul video once they arrive!).
A few weekends' ago Blair and I were kindly invited to stay at the Edinburgh Novotel, to indulge in a little staycation in our own city. It had been a busy few weeks at work for both of us, and with our summer holiday still feeling like an age away (we're back now though, waaaah) it was the ideal way to relax.
