Merhaba! I have returned. And I'll tell you this for nothing - Scotland is a LOT colder than Turkey.
I was incredibly proud of my slight tan [I spend about 11.5 months of the year so pale than people ask me if I'm tired] until I discovered that the reason for my tan was not my newly exfoliated body, as the Turkish spa man insisted it was, but was instead due to the fact that my after-sun lotion had fake tan in it. I didn't realise this for a good six days, so now not only do I feel like a phoney, I have the fake-tan tidemarks on my hands to prove it.
It was a wonderful week - made slightly more wonderful by all the lovely comments on my farewell post - thankyou guys! It was a week filled with more laughter than I can remember, sunshine that sank into your bones, and the utter bliss that comes with knowing that you have nothing to do.
And of course, food. A lot of food. When I go to an all inclusive hotel, I make it my mission to try absolutely everything - which always ends up with a plate full of portions of food I don't like, and not enough of the food I do like - but I will never change! I love trying all the things that you wouldn't normally pick in a restaurant, just for that moment when you're pleasantly surprised, and find something you love. Translation: I'm a 'why not?' kinda girl.
And so to music. Here are a couple of my holiday songs, though they're not exactly new, maybe a few are new to you.
Gentleman Reg - Coastline
Total Babe - Shape Up
Thao With The Get Down Stay Down - Know Better Learn Faster
Born Ruffians - Little Garcon
Girls - Lust For Life
