last week my two best friends and I went on a little camping holiday to Abersoch for a couple of nights. We were so chuffed that the weather was forecast to be sunny and very hot whilst we were away, so we packed a hell of a lot of sun cream!
We stayed in a quiet little campsite in Llanbedrog which was full of lovely old couples who always smiled and chatted when they saw you. After spending the whole of the first day swimming and sun bathing on Llanbedrog beach was adventured into pwllheli for literally the best chips I have ever had in my life!
On the second day we went down to Hell's mouth beach for a surfing lesson, it turned out that there was barely any waves due to a lack of current and wind! but Nick, our instructor, still gave us a great lesson and I still managed to stand up on the board. I don't know about anyone else that has ever worn a wet suit but I had the worst time trying to get it in, the arm holes were literally so tiny that my hands wouldn't fit in, not to mention it was like 30 odd degrees out so we were all hot and sweaty, after what seemed like years of tugging and four cut and bleeding fingers we were finally in our wetsuits! I definitely think that surfing is my calling in life! Seriously when I'm older I am going to buy a classic VW campervan, paint it up and then travel the world surfing!
After surfing we went into Abersoch to look around the shops and go to the beach, Abersoch is one of the cutest little beach towns I've been to and its definitely worth a visit.
Finally on the last day we ventured down onto Whistling Sands beach, I would definitely recommend going here if you're ever in the area. Due to some weirdly shaped sand, if you scoot your feet whilst walking along the beach the sand actually squeaks!

Last week it was my sisters 22nd birthday so I took her (along with her boyfriend) to the Blue Planet Aquarium. I haven't visited the aquarium for literally 15 years and I was surprised at how little it had changed in that time...the memories of fishy whales with pea eyes still haunt me to this day!
We spent a lovely morning viewing a load of cool fish and watched some sharks and a family of otters being fed. Outside one of the fish tanks was a photographer, who claimed that for his training he had to take so many photos and involving different we agreed to let him take our photos in a load of silly and very embarrassing poses, with, I might add, the rest of the public watching!
That evening we went to Miller and Carter for a meal and enjoyed a free bottle of champagne because it was my sisters birthday, the food was great and we all had a lovely time.

June Favourites

Soap & Glory's Hand Food
Soap & Glory's Smooth Body Butter
Soap & Glory's Pulp Friction Body Scrub
This month all Soap & Glory product were on a 3 for 2 offer in boots AND I had a voucher for their products, so I couldn't resist stocking up on some of my favourite body products.
If you've never tried any Soap & Glory products you definitely should, they smell divine! Kind of like sweet and vanillary but very feminine at the same time.
Definite repurchase for all of these items.
