Night #2

The top image is of our first proper night out here. The strip on Albufeira has tons and tons of bars and
restaurants - my favourite bar/club being 'Patcha' - a cool genuinely Portugese club. However, if you think 'Wake Me Up' and 'Blurred Lines' are overplayed in England then you won't believe what it's like here!

The second was a more chilled night for us - we just popped into the Old Town in Albufeira and had a look round a few of the shops. One shop (pictured above) was absolutely full of really unique ornaments and decorations. Gave me so much inspiration for my own place! I especially loved the strange egg-shaped lights. We also saw the sand sculptures which are truly amazing. They require constant maintenance and you're not allowed to get too close. Lastly we went to the American Diner for puddings. It's absolutely delicious but soo filling! I had the 'Rockie Chockie Mountain Sundae'.

Today we just visited the Marina in Villa Moura and just chilling by the pool. Tomorrow I think we're heading to a shopping centre. There's a huge Zara so I'm preparing for some sort of haul!

PS - I promise I'll be taking better outfit photos soon! Still getting used to my camera!

It's been a while... OK, it's been just over an entire year since I blogged. Now I've started working full time I find it incredibly difficult to find any inspiration or time to sit down and post photos and talk about what would be very monotonous days! However, I'm on holiday in Albufeira, Portugal, for the second time at the moment, so I've decided to bust out the camera and take some photos!

This was actually yesterday - our first full day here. We just popped into town and had a peruse around the shops. I'm always impressed by the array of Sambuca flavours they have over here!
The view is absolutely incredible, I'll have to take some in the evenings as well when all the bars open and it gets a lot busier. To get into the town, you have to go down two escalators which are completely out in the open. It's quite a surreal thing to see but makes it so much easier! When you get to the bottom, there's a big square where people can hire rollerskates, quadbikes and segways (see the most terrifying Mr. Bean image they could find!) I haven't been brave enough to hire one yet, but who knows!

Today was just a day of chilling by the pool, and tonight we're heading out onto the strip for a few drinks. If you'd like to follow me on a more immediate level, you can check out my twitter and my instagram.
Speak tomorrow!
