Magaluf Diaries

Entry 2
19th September 2010
After some much deserved sleep we awake at 12pm a little disorientated as to where we are and slightly bad heads.
We decide to freshen ourselves up put our bikinis on head out find something to eat pronto before beaching it all day.
Its very hot today and we wander down the street to 'The Irish Bar' and notice all day breakfast for 3 euros (bargain), really friendly Irish people and the food is so nice I could eat another plateful.
After letting our breakfast go down we stop by the shop to get some Allioli (the best garlic sauce in the world) and crisps to keep us going at the beach.
The beach is so pretty, has crystal clear waters, in fact its that clear a Sheol of fish swam through my legs i nearly jumped out my skin. Lots of things to do, but all we want to do is sleep and sunbath.
After a good 6 hours sunning ourselves we head back to our apartment for a cheese sandwich, relax and more sleep before getting ready to go out.
Tonight we decide that we will give the strip and miss as we are meeting some friends from back home who are also in Magaluf.
We meet them in Bobby's Tavern which caters more for the older generation and has a Rod Stuart Tribute playing but the music is old classics which I do enjoy.
I end up getting quite drunk again as I take a few shots of Sambuca (The devils drink).
We go to a different bar, again caters for the older generation but the music is better and the place quite trendy and up market. One of our friends decides to do his own Michael Jackson tribute....... well he tried, not going to say he was successful. I do believe he did not remember this in the morning.

At one point I went to the toilet and some 40 something woman who was so up herself had the same dress as me and thought she was amazing (I was not wearing the same dress she just had the same dress), I was very drunk and was not impressed with her snobbishness so decided to confront her and said 'Is that dress from French Connection?' 'yes' she says 'thought so I've got it only seen as I'm 20 years younger than you, it looks 10 times better on me' and walked out the loo's but proceeded to get dirty looks from her and friends all night. Oh well you only live once and she shouldn't be so up herself.
Once the place closes we end up going to find some Pizza as we get a little craving for it.
We find a takeaway place up the strip but the owner is very seedy, he says to my friend she is allowed free pizza so when she goes to get free Pizza he said 'I only give you free pizza if you send Becky here' , so I go round and get my free pizza and he still won't let my friend have any but advises if we go there the same time tomorrow he will give her free pizza, in the meantime my friend is extremely drunk and decided to market some oil by lying across the counter. I on the other hand am tired and would just like to go home but Miss Chatterbox continues to lye across the counter and passers by look at me with strange faces as if we are some kind of Alien that has just landed from an unknown planet.
We wander back and finally get into bed at 6am.

Primarni here I come.....

Going back into the student world hasn't been that easy financially, I am unable to just walk into one of my favourite designer high street stores and purchase a £150 dress instead I need to look for alternative more cost effective ways to keep my fashion addiction going.

The other day whilst out shopping in Merry Hill Shopping Mall I walked into Primark and they actually have some very reasonable items of clothing for an unbelievable price, it was like student heaven like the Jacket below:
Really nice jersey material blazer for £13.00, comfortable but stylish w
hich you can wear for going out or more casually.

I wore it for a night out to trendy bars, I decided to match it with wet look leggings, a long t-shirt top also from Primark for £5 and the shoes shown below, the big bangle added some glamour to the outfit and again from Primark for £2

I am inspired by the designer Nikki Lund who designs for WTB clothing, all rock chic glamour which I love.
My favourite piece has to be these leopard print wet look leggings:

Also this week I bought some new make-up from Me Me Me:
I wanted some shimmer for my cheeks as the brand I had been using was discontinued and I haven't found anything as good since, this Me Me Me shimmer pad gives you a glow but not as much shimmer as my original product but for £6 it's a bargain.
If anyone has any other products that may give more shimmer to your cheeks please let me know as I would love to try them out.

What is everyone else's favourite piece or purchase so far this season?

3 Turn On's

  1. Tanned skin on men or women, you look way healthier with a slight glow and not to mention sexy too.
  2. Eye contact, nothing can beat having a conversation through eye contact
  3. A toned body and I don't mean lots of big muscles just a nice toned body is something I appreciate.

Do you agree?

Four Turn Offs

  1. Hairy Men - I know sometimes they can't help it but I can't help not liking it, especially back hair that's a big turn off for me but there re ways of managing it so if I fell in love with a hairy man I'm sure we could work something out
  2. Anyone being sick, I cannot stand it, it makes me heave so badly
  3. B.O, nothing worse than if your in a Que, on the bus or walking down the street and you get a whiff of someones B.O, please just buy some deodorant.
  4. Men who dress better than me, I want a man not a boy who's trying out do me.

Wanted to make it a little more girly and soothing to look at.
Have also re-arranged things a little so the whole page looks a lot more appealing.
Please give me your thoughts as I love to hear from you and if possible can you read my other 3 blog posts below and give me your thoughts on those too.

Thank you thank you your far too kind....

This is a very belated thank you to Laree @ Living like Laree for my third Blog Award to which she has redesigned the graphics of the award and I have to say I agree the new design is much better, it's modern, funky and BOLD and I love things that are Bold and stand out.

Anyhow please check out her blog too as she's good at expressing herself through all sorts of arts, I especially like this blog post of hers :

Very mesmerising video, I like things like this because they are different and unique, it's good to see what new effects people are coming up with.

Anyway I would like to give this Award to the following Blogs:

  • Melanie @ Oh such is life - This girl has the most random things on her blog but this is why I like it, you never know what she has in store next and they always make an interesting read
  • Rikashi Naidu @ Reflections Fade - She has a topic and gives her reflections on that topic, (hence the title) her latest post she debates which is better Harry Potter or Twilight? I really like this idea and may do something similar myself
  • Tiffany @ Stylish Chatterboxing - This girl talks about accessories like jewellery, scarves and bags. Good for advice and finding some hidden gems for yourself, she even created her own clutch bag out of old fashion magazines
  • Miss emy @ Stop Listen - I have only just started following this blog but I really enjoy how she has an opinion on everything and also isn't afraid to say if she thinks she's in the wrong. Honesty is the best policy.
  • Miss Werginz @ diary of a Newlywed - Such a cute blog about newly married life and she gave me the idea for the 10 day blogging adventure.
  • Ashley @ She who will be tamed - love this girl so open and honest

Magaluf Diaries

Entry one:

Date: 18th September 2010

I am so tired as I didn't finish packing until last minute last night, I couldn't decided what I wanted to take and then I'd forget something. Oh and we had the fiasco with the padlock, in the sense that I couldn't actually padlock my suitcase because one of the zip pulls had broke but with a bit of string it all worked out.

Our journey from the UK to Majorca took 12 hours, from the time we left my house at 8am, got dropped at the coach station and had a 3 hour coach Journey to Gatwick Airport, then another few hours through security before boarding the plane for a 2 hours flight and then 2 more hours the other side before arriving at our hotel.

We nearly missed our flight because the airport never put the gate number up and then decided to display last call for boarding and the gate number which was a 15 minute walk away. I have never run so fast in my life but I didn't need to as when we got to the gate there was a massive Que but I needed the exercise looking at the positive side.

The arrival and transport to our hotel went a lot smoother than the departure from the UK, I was very impressed with speed of it all.

But we arrived in daylight and it was dark by the time we reached our hotel.
Upon arriving at Sol Lunamar Hotel we were greeted by the receptionist who was very friendly and we were shown the way to our apartment/room.

The apartment was small but homely and had everything we needed including a balcony that overlooked the pool area.
We decided as it was so late we would get changed and go explore the Magaluf strip.
On the way down to the strip we passed by a restaurant and noticed they had an offer on pizza, we were quite hungry so popped in.

The restaurant was quite classy, nicely laid out tables and decor, the waitress took our orders and we waited patiently for our food. We had a whole pizza each and I managed all mine as I was very hungry but at the end I decided to take off the pineapple chunks of the last slice and realised it had made a face which made me chuckle.

The walk to the strip took about 10 minutes but it wasn't cold so we were quite happy in our little dresses and small shrugs.
We got to the bottom of the strip and looked up and it was just bright lights and people everywhere for as far as you could see but as soon as you start walking up the strip the fun starts.

They come at you like vultures trying to get you into their bar (I was warned about this), we were crushed by the first bloke who said 'hello sexy ladies come into the best bar on the strip and I'll get you 2 for one on drinks and a free shot'

We walked into Chaplins Bar to find it populated with many men, most quite a bit older than us and on a stag do, we did notice going further up the strip that there were many stag and hen do's out so I would say it is a good place to go for this type of party holiday.

There's lots of fun games to be played, at one point the DJ said any men left with there tops on at the end of this track will have a for fit so as you can imagine there were already a lot of men in there but to then be surrounded by semi-naked men was very crazy.

The bar played golden oldies like 'I would walk 500 miles' and 'walking on sunshine' which was good to have a boogie to.
We left after we'd had had our drinks and carried on up the strip to be surrounded yet again, at one point a bloke picked me up chucked me over his shoulder and said ' your coming with me into my bar' and I shouted at my friend 'I'm been taken hostage' he put me back down and off I went into the arms of another guy who asked where my friend and I were going to which we replied 'not in there' he said 'what do you want' my friend said as a joke ' car bonnets' he said 'I can do car bonnets and deliver then but only if you come and get a drink first' so off we went again.

This time the bar Mulligans played more modern music, was less crowded and had an area to sit outside which we decided to do.

Finally we got dragged over to The Office Bar which the sign reminded me off the brand of shoes Office which I adore.

This was a really modern upbeat bar and was full of young people and played really good up to date music, it had a small upstairs bar area and a bigger dance floor bit down some steps. Out of all the three bars we visited this was the friendliest. We were approached by different people male and female wanting to talk to us and we felt really at home there.

At about 3am we decided to wander back to our hotel and try to stay out the way of the vultures.
So far my impression of Magaluf is it's a cheap crazy party town, we will see what happens tomorrow when I will view Magaluf by day........

Five people who mean a lot to you:

  1. Top person in my life is my Mum, she didn't have the best time bringing my brother I up as children but as a single mother she did an amazing job and has come out a stronger and better woman for it. Even though we have had our ups and downs she has taught me so much about life I can't thank her enough. Mum I love you very much.
  2. My cousin is the strongest person I know even though it feels like sometimes things never seem to go her way, she always stays positive and I look up to her as one of my role models.
  3. My Nan is a very strongly opinionated person and I love her for that, she has taught me to stand up for myself and what I believe in, we have had many heated debates and discussions but I thank her for that as I have learnt a valuable life skill: don't be afraid to express yourself
  4. I have to say my Dad even though right now we are not the best of pals, hes my Dad and I wouldn't want anything bad to happen to him
  5. Lastly I don't have one person I want to dedicate this too I have quite a few, they are all my best friends but they mean a lot to me for different reasons so Shelley, Chloe and Sophie (little CH) I love you all very much.

Six things you wish you could change or you wish you’d never done

  1. I wish I could change the time I met my ex boyfriend as I feel we met at the wrong time in life
  2. I'd like to change my hair for thicker hair, my hair is so fine I can hardly do anything with it and it annoys me
  3. I wish I hadn't stayed with my ex boyfriend for as long as I did and I should of been stronger and walked away a few years ago to start living my life
  4. I think dyeing my hair bleach blonde was a mistake when I was 15, I looked a bit freaky with blonde hair and brown eyes but hey we all go through that rebellious stage
  5. I wish for all the times I screamed at my mum that I hate her I could take it back
  6. I wish I could change the fact I over analyse what people think of me too much, most of the time I worry about nothing

T-Dog's first marathon!!

Yesterday my lovely dog decided he'd like to take part in his own marathon.

I came back from shopping to find my Mum had kindly taken Toby to the stables so he could run about all day.

When she came back I went straight out and took him with me to my Grandmothers as I was visiting and staying the night and my Grandmother loves Toby.

Anyhow I thought it a little strange for him to fall straight asleep on the journey over, he normally gets excited but just put it down to he'd been running around all day.

Today I thanked my Mum for taking him as I hadn't had chance to thank her yet as I was in such a rush the day before, and when I said thank you my Mum and my brother proceeded to laugh.

Curious I asked what this was about and they said he had a good run yesterday that's for sure.

There were two people down the stables yesterday my Mum and my friend who has a horse there as well.

Apparently my Mum had gone to the loo and my friend had got in her car to go to the feed store to get some more horse feed which is about 3 miles away and up and down lots of country lanes.

When my friend reached the feed store and opened the car door, Toby jumped in all out of breath, he'd followed her the whole way as he thought he was been left as couldn't see my mum.

Goodness knows what passers by thought seeing a dog chasing after a car, I bet they were thinking:

'how lazy and cruel is she'

Poor thing, I'm surprised his little legs didn't drop off, he's still sleeping it off now but if there ever was a doggy Marathon I'm sure he'd win paws down.

Eight things I couldn't live without:

  1. My Ugg Boots, they are fashionable, comfy and you can where them whatever the season.
  2. My dog Toby, I'm sure you are all aware I love him very much and he's very adorable.
  3. My car, yes I know what your all thinking (lazy girl) but without my car I feel like I've lost a limb I travel everywhere to far places and it saves time.
  4. I'm going to say food as you wouldn't survive without it and I love it.
  5. Vaseline, saviour for cracked lips and acts as a lip gloss over lipstick to add extra shine to the colour.
  6. My pink, hooded dressing gown, keeps me so snug and warm and it's my favourite colour
  7. My camera, I love to capture those comedy moments when no one expects their photo to be taken.
  8. Finally My mum she does more in my life than I think and I really value her so I don't know what I'm going to do without her but I hope to be like her one day.

10 Day Blogging Adventure


9 Things about yourself that most people don't know:

  1. I sleep with the covers over my head even if it's really hot, ever since my mum told me as a child she felt someone breathing on her and when she opened her eyes no one was there
  2. I eat chocolate spread with a spoon out the jar
  3. Although I seem confident sometimes it's just a front
  4. It's annoying when people don't drive
  5. I always say if I don't do this by the time this happens then this is going to happen to you. i.e 'if by the time I reach the traffic lights they have gone red then I will have a bad day'
  6. I love the sound of heavy rainy on a window at night
  7. I still own a spice girls album
  8. I am terrible at hoarding stuff, especially clothes, I always think I'll wear it again someday
  9. Prefer plants over flowers, flowers die too quick.
