the bright side

Looking at these photos, you probably wouldn’t know I had spent a week in 30+ degree heat, I felt brown (for me) whilst I was out there but back in England I feel distinctly pale still! De Nada, at least I had no sunburn! Most of my tan is made up of freckles, as seen on my face! Once an English Rose, always an English Rose!

Primark dress, Shellys shoes c/o Sarenza.

Drying my “I miss Spain” tears on napkins, from my authentic Spanish napkin holder, donated by one of the many cafes we visited after a little bit of persuasion on Ellie’s behalf!

Well, work calls…I could have done with another week off to recover!

  2. love your bright dress πŸ™‚ x

  3. I’m still exhausted. Not back to work until Friday, but cramming in days out.

    Love the colours on the dress. I wish they’d pattern match on side seams though!


  4. LOVE that dress – saw it on Lady Bug Says a couple of weeks ago but did my Primark have any? Did it heck.

    I’m the same, I’ve just come back from Ibiza and apart from the freckles you wouldn’t know I’d been anywhere!

  5. Love the dress, one of my friends at work has it too πŸ™‚ you do look tanned and “well” as they say, after a holiday xx

  6. I like the dress and the way it compliments your skin tone =)

    Don’t worry…I thought I was brown as well…then I came back to Portugal and realized nop…I’m still white xD

    Anonymous – Not really any of your business, but no.

    If that question was an attempt to annoy me, it didn’t work. I don’t fancy Laura (sorry love!), I just care a lot about her, as she is a very good real-life friend of mine. (Remember real life? That’s where you have to actually talk to people face-to-face and can’t hide behind “Anonymous”.)

    If you are now going to transfer your trolling onto me, bring it on. If it stops you being vile to Laura, I can take it.

  21. ‘Cat’ – you are an amazing friend x x x

  22. Such a cute dress, perfect with those shoes xx
