As promised, here are some photographs from my holiday. I stayed in a tiny Spanish village about an hour and a half away from Mรกlaga Airport, and spent most of the two weeks I was there relaxing in the sunshine, catching up on some good reading and swimming. I haven't had a beach holiday for five years, so it was really lovely to have a really relaxing time and change of scenery.

Beautiful Hibiscus flowers were planted all around the village, in gorgeous pinks, corals, blues and whites.

Myself on the beach on day one of the holiday, hence the lack of tan!

View of the sunset from the balcony of the apartment.

Myself on the beach (again!)

The view of the village from the top of a mountain.

Shadows of roses growing along a residential street. 

A traditional Spanish townhouse situated along the main road of the village, it had the biggest garden, with a palm tree and a water well.  I can only imagine how beautiful it would be on the inside, and it would be a lovely place to live, as the rear garden faces the seafront.

The swimming pool. 

Beautiful palm trees growing all along the seafront. 

Me on the beach when the waves were very fierce!

The waves coming in over the sand.

Overall it was a really lovely holiday, and I am already missing the sunshine. 

Are you off anywhere exciting this summer? Where is your dream holiday location?

21.07.2010- Holiday Snaps

I got back from my holiday yesterday, after a really relaxing break. I've still got a mountain of unpacking to do, but couldn't resist posting this editorial from US Harper's Bazaar, featuring Jessica Stam. Shot by Alexi Lubomirski, the shoot is entitled Spanish Revival and, looking through it, I quite want to go back to the Spanish sunshine myself!

I really love the vibrancy of this shoot; you can just feel the sunshine seeping through the pictures. I hope to get some of my holiday photos up here soon, just as soon as I get my case unpacked!
