Best Pal-ermo!

Best Pal-ermo!

Continuing the glam of our “year of 30ths”, the girls headed for a long weekend in Palermo, Sicily for Naomi’s birthday. Mondello to be precise, a gorgeous beach just 20 minutes drive from the centre of Palermo city.

Following the sun (and the Son) for Easter

Ah sun, glorious sun. It only took about five minutes before I could feel my sad, dry, pale, quasi-British skin crisping up in the boiling 19 degree heat of Palma de Mallorca and let me tell you, it hurt so good. We had a lovely, long girls’ weekend in this beautiful capital of the Spanish Balearic … Continue reading
