Orange ribbons in her hair

Got back from Portugal last night. It was actually much better than I thought it would be, spent two weeks sunbathing, swimming in the sea and just generally relaxing. Read three and a half books, listened to a whole lotta music, and drank a really ridiculous amount of mango ice tea. Also, managed to get quite a few wolf whistles (should I feel good about that?), a free nectarine from an old lady who thought I was Swedish, and for what seems like the first time in my life, an actual tan! x



  1. Pretty pictures, love the last one of the sunset, it's beautiful. I'm glad you had fun (: and that you got a tan! I'm another one of those girls where it's practically impossible to get a tan!

  2. lovelylovely photography girl!
    thanks for your kind words
    i hope you'd like to follow/look again

  3. That sounds like a good trip.. I love Portugal, I went there a whileback. What part of it did you visit?
    And that last picture is lovely. The light is amazing.

  4. Can totally relate to you on the fact about the tan! Glad you had a lovely time, and getting wolf whistles on holiday is part of the experience!

  5. Beautiful pictures of the sea (L)


  6. really beautiful photos!

  7. it pleases me that your back!

    well done on the tan - I hope you show it off by wearing brights! Which 3.5 books did you read?

    By the way, did you do GCSEs? I can't remember if they're coming out soon, or have been out already!


  8. Really sounds a great trip. And good for you, having a relax days was so important for a person. Thanks for sharing. Have a great day ahead. =D

  12. Great pictures! What gorgeous water. Haha, I think I have my first tan right now, too.

  13. If one of those 3 1/2 books finished was MiddleSex remember to give me your review!

    Your photos are as beautiful as you must have looked on vacation to warrant such a public outcry of adoration. I would say you can take a wolf whistle as compliment. I mean a "You are truly beautiful" is a bit classier but a compliment is still a compliment : )


Make my day.
