Heavenly days on sunny beaches in shorts (again)!


There’s nothing rad about shorts, that I do know. But it’s hot and what’s more, what was left of my spray tan has now adhered itself to the inside of my wetsuit so I need to try and get a little colour on my legs. I seem to have done it pretty well on my nose, with Mr SG asking whether I was matching my lipgloss to the colour of my nose tonight. He needs to watch it or he might find his beloved crocs being sold on eBay.

This combo was just some GAP printed shorts, a GAP hat bought in the sale on Saturday, a plain white H&M vest, Jack Wills flip flops, La Mandarine sarong and a silver Oushka clutch.

I’ve recently mentioned some new goggles that I bought. My old ones were terrible and I had to stop every five lengths or so to de-mist them and empty them of water. They also left deep welts under my eyes, which is also the reason that Sharron Davies doesn’t swim much anymore (apparently). Anyway, for any swimmers out there, I can’t recommend the Aquasphere goggles highly enough. This morning I did my entire swim without having to stop once. Attractive they are not but they do a good job.

Tomorrow it’s my birthday so I may take a little blogging holiday, depending on how it all turns out! However I am sure that I will be posting the odd pic of the birthday proceedings on Instagram. I think that I may have had wind of one of two things that might appeal to some of you out there…

Ooh, and yesterday’s post was my 1000th post. I think that I worked out that if each post took on average one hour, that’s about 42 days, or seven weeks of my life that I have devoted to blogging. I’m not quite sure what to make of that.

    Great tip on the goggles. Think I need to invest in a new pair as I can't seem to find the perfect pair that doesn't leak even a tiny bit! Hope you're enjoying your holiday, and Happy Birthday! x

    Happy Birthday Beth! Looking super cool on the beach there. When the sun shines there really is not better place to be than on the English coast
