Finally! Zero sleeps to go! I’m off on this crazy ridiculous holiday that I won… and for a little sumthin’ special (or not, depends what you like!) I decided to make y’all a little VLOG of… me and my little getting ready for Egypt process 🙂

Aside from being totally excited about the holiday, I loved the idea of having an excuse to buy STUFF. I mean, I didn’t pay for the holiday right? Which totally justifies me spending money on a new hat / book / bikini right?

Damn right.

So you’d better believe I hit the shops in preparation for this itty bitty beach break here and stocked up on the essentials:

1. A new hat

There’s this hat guy at Covent Garden who sells the most awesome headgear for cheap so I made a bee-line for him and tried on one or two or um, like ten hats. I was infinitely indecisive and actually think I like that big black cowboy hat best but alas, I wasn’t sure if I was “cowgirl” enough to pull it off. The big floppy hat was a no-no and the pink was a little too disco for Egypt, so I settled for a simple brown number…

2. A new book

Still reeling from the closure of Borders (oh, how I miss thee!), I rummaged around in Waterstones trying to find me the right book. I wanted so many because if there’s one thing I love as much as food, it’s books! After browsing for an eternity, I settled on Eat Pray Love in preparation for the movie, because have you seen the preview? Looks totally chick-flick-awesome! 🙂

3. A new bikini

Ok so I didn’t really need a new bikini, but I’d like to have a new bikini. I tried on billions (ok here I go exaggerating again) and my favourites were the red Juicy Coutures, but sadly they were a tiny bit out of my budget, free holiday or not. I ended up with a pair that is SO NOT ME ~ frilly pink! I know, weird right? I blame holiday brain 😉

Anyway, I’m now 100% ready to do nothing but lie on the beach! I truly wish I could bring everyone with me…

Sadly, I can only bring you in spirit, so see y’all on the other side!

Once again, thanks Qype and On The Beach!

🙂 xx
