as soon as i wake up every night, every day.

basically you're going to need some sort of cocktail or perhaps a hot beverage (said beveraaagggeeee) to sit through this lot, i lack any sort of decision making skills when it comes to photos (once they're the ones that i like and have edited, i'm pretty though when it comes to the first part!) 
soooo for those who haven't caught up with my life and stuff (where have you been!)...joking but i have been banging on about it, jay and i went to tenerife last week for some sun (too much sun according to my knees, who just burns their knees?!)
our hotel was pretty swish, apart from the fact they gave us two single beds pushed together instead of a double and the choice of sheet pattern was very questionable however we had a lovely balcony that we spent many an afternoon on and all the staff were really helpful!
i did also enjoy pretending to be olivia khatri for the week...

our hotel had steps down onto the beach and the path that stretched along a massive bit of the island, each bit had a cove of beach that we stopped of at (jay looked at the rocks obvz, you can take the boy out of a geology degree but you can't take the geology degree out of the boy!)
in one of our favourite parts there were tiny rock pools that had tropical fish and crabs in, jay also rescued a fish from a shrinking rock pool, rock boy saves that day!

our hotel offered a shuttle bus to the nearby cites, so we had a little day trip to los cristianos where the beaches had white sand (all the beaches in tenerife apart from two have black sand, fun fact for you there eh) although the white sand is just as hot, cue burnt soles as well as burnt knees.
as well as a subway...i know i know but I'm a sucker for a toasted sandwich okay...we had some amzinnggg ice cream, i was torn between oreo and ferrero rocher (rocher won, it was divine)

on the wednesday it was jay birds birthday! it was mainly lounging by the pool and having lots of rum and cokes (god bless all inclusive) 
when we got up to our room we found a lovely letter and bottle of fizz from the hotel, i took jay for a mexican (i ate it too fast to take a picture) we also had some lush mango margaritas, heading home pretty giggly we finished off the rest of the cava, chatted late into the night on our balcony and woke up just in time for breakfast!

on our last day we wanted to walk along our favourite bit of the coast (also that we had checked out and needed to distract ourselves from the fact that we wanted to go swimming)
i still can't over how blue the ocean was! (i've never really been anywhere tropical) 
i wish england was this beautiful and serene, i mean essex it beautiful but not really serene (the joys of living near an airport)

  2. I've been obsessed with that Arctic Monkeys song too! Looks like you had an amazing holiday, most hotels abroad give you two singles pushed together - I spent the whole time last year falling down the middle! xx

  3. Livvy, although I am a relatively new reader (6 months?) I love your blog, it's the reason I got bloglovin' and I have missed your posts!
    I hope you continue to update, as your style is fab and I do live somewhat vicariously through your blog... That's not sad, right?!
    This is my first ever comment on any blog, but I just thought I had to say it as you seemed so lost in your last post.
    Basically I appreciate and missed your blogging. I'm sorry that this is garbled.
    Looks like you had a fab time abroad! My summer holiday of 2k13 has now gone abroad. ;)
    Thanks,
