Holiday Haulin’

Hey! Look at me!! I’m starting to get on board with this blog thingy! Aren’t you all lucky?!

So I am off on my holidays and have, of corse, been doing a spot of shopping in preparation.
Nothing too major – but I hit the sales and have found a few things to take away with me. I wanted to share!!
So firstly, to my holiday shop hot spot, Primark!

I grabbed a few things for myself, and for Luke. I know my boy has more clothes than I do. But just like me, I wanted him to have some new things to take on his holiday.

I really liked these T-shirts. I decided to get them in 18-24 months so he can grow into then and they will last him well into the summer. It always becomes difficult to know which size to get for babies as they grow so fast.
So to be on the safe side, I always go a size bigger!

Steve also found this Batman rain suit in Tesco! We are very excited about little man exploring the beach and not getting too wet and cold. With the added amazing bonus that is Batman!!! I love to explore rock pools and caves, looking for crabs and fish. I can’t wait for Luke to join me! He’s got his wellies…can we go now please??

Now my son is a HUGE fan of Jake and the Neverland Pirates, which you can catch on Disney Junior….

So as this is his holiday too, I had to get him a suitcase!! This came from Amazon for £21, and also comes with a back pack, swimming bag and wallet! He is set!
We also found this awesome Jake sun hat! He will easily look like he is sponsored by Jake, but he loves him!!

Last thing for Luke is this gorgeous jacket my mum spotted in a charity shop this week. It still has the original JoJo Maman Bebe label on it, suggesting it has never been work. And the original price tag of £32. My mum got this jacket for £1.99! Charity shops are absolute treasure troves – I never leave one empty handed!

Now my stuff – which has an added game of ‘Spot the Theme’…

Firstly, this amazing Minneapolis Baseball inspired shirt – I have wanted one of these for ages! And I finally decided to give in and treat myself. It’s gorgeous! And a bargain at £8!!

Next, this Brooklyn long vest top – now if you are familiar with my YouTube videos, you’ll know I always wear 2 shirts – it’s a personal preference, but I love layering. Always have done. So this shirt will look perfect with a white, cream or black shirt underneath.

Can you see a theme yet? Maybe my next purchase will help…

USA inspired socks! I you know me, I muddle all of my socks together – and when they are of a similar theme like these, they don’t look too odd! Haha…

For some reason, I had a big America theme shop – and I didn’t actually realise until I got home and looked at my new things.

Also, check out my amazing Dalmatian pjs! I got them in a ridiculously large size – but I find Primark sizes to be smaller than other places anyway, plus some have a tendency to shrink slightly in the wash.

Also, the bigger they are, the longer they are in the leg – which is one feature I struggle with! I have a 35′ inside leg – I find it very hard to find trousers long enough!

We did some shopping in some charity shops too – I love reading on holiday – I’m not sure why I read when I’m away, but not when I’m at home. Odd.
So these books were £1 each! It’s unlikely I’ll finish one, although I’ll take the 2 thrillers just in case.

Lastly, a trip to Superdrug to stock up on shampoo and conditioner and some face packs. We’re going away with Steve’s family, so the possibility of a girly night with my beautiful sister in law made me get some trusty packets of my favourite mud packs. These were on 4 for 3 at 99p each!

So hopefully I’ll bring you another blog before I go away on my holiday. Maybe a review – I have so many products!
