A WEEKEND IN ZAKYNTHOS!



Last weekend, I headed quite far south to the island of Zakynthos to celebrate my bestie getting married! The bride, myself and her other bridesmaid Abby got our summer clothes back out and took a 4hr flight to get that last little bit of summer! Swimwear365 very kindly gifted me some items to make my weekend that little bit more enjoyable and what's even more exciting is I'm doing an Instagram take over with them too, check out their page here.



Friday - Exploring Tsilivi

We stayed in the Tsilivi area of Zakynthos which is known as being the second busiest place to stay in the height of summer. As we're not massive party gals, we weren't bothered about the big clubs, we wanted nice bars with cocktails and good music and luckily because it was coming to the end of the season it was pretty quiet which was perfect for us. In just 10 minutes walk, we were at the bars, restaurants and shops.



I ABSOLUTELY loved this tunic! I think it's probably my favourite item I've ever taken on holiday with me. It was perfect for throwing over my swimwear, or for popping down for breakfast. It's so lightweight which means it's perfect for carrying in your bag and the fabric means it dries really quickly too. Plus, the pattern is just SO gorgeous!



I love a good tropical print and obviously a holiday is the perfect excuse to rock it! As soon as I saw this jumpsuit I fell in love, it fits like a dream, it's super flattering and it's incredible comfortable to wear. I wore this to dinner one night and fully embraced an extra bit of pudding with its elasticated waist!

Saturday - Navagio Beach (Shipwreck Beach)

A trip to Navagio Beach was at the top of our 'to do' list, we've literally been dreaming about visiting this stunning beach since we booked this trip back in January and boy, it didn't disappoint! We booked an all day trip (25 euros each) which was 8 hours in total with 3 stops along the way. At first, the weather was a bit questionable but luckily by our first stop the sun was out and it stayed for the rest of the day. I don't think it would have been the same without the beautiful sunshine! This beach was stunning and I've never seen waters so blue! Well worth a trip if you ever visit the island.



Every girl needs a black swimsuit in their life and the gold details on this little number give it that extra special touch. I felt really good in this swimsuit and after usually shying away from halter necks it certainly changed my opinion on them! Can I have another holiday to wear it again please?


Sunday - Pool Day

After our busy day on Saturday, we wanted a totally chill day on Sunday so of course we spent the day by the hotel pool! It was so much fun! I don't think I've ever laughed so much and I can't wait to see the hilarious go pro footage we recorded jumping in the pool and falling off the floats which I did with very little dignity!



So there it is, my weekend in Greece! We honestly had the best time and were very sad to leave! Roll on hen do #2 in a couple of weeks time, hello afternoon tea! Thanks again to Swimwear365 for updating my holiday wardrobe!
