Fuerteventura 2017 Photo Diary // Day 2

This little photo diary features day 1 of our 2-day road trip around Fuerte back in June. This is from Ajuy, where we took a visit to the volcanic caves and had a late lunch facing the black sand beaches. I'm posing in the shadows since my shoulders resembled freshly steamed lobster, straight out of the pot. Nothing like looking like a glistening crustacean. 

We found out right before that final picture was taken that PJ had passed his exams for the 1st year of his English Law Master's, so of course we celebrated at Cuevas de Ajuy with some wine, fresh fish, and pan-baked Canarian goat cheese. I was in absolute heaven - even though the waiter had accidentally given our cheese to the girls next to us by accident. If I had been them, I also wouldn't have questioned free cheese. That ish was good.

Peace, love and goat cheese is all I need in life to be happy (obvs including PJ & Hobson). Hopefully you can eat that cheese someday soon, too. Highly recommended ;)

Mood Music Monday // True Feeling

As much as the artwork for this single is the stuff of my nightmares, I can't get this song out of my head. I only really figured out who Galantis is when my brother went to go see the Swedish DJ duo in London, but the second I heard True Feeling, I was hooked. 

It makes me want to jump around on a dance floor with my friends. Unfortunately, my party opportunities are slim to none these days, but I've listened to it on my 6-minute commute every morning this past week, and it's a tradition I'll happily continue this week, too. 


What's your song of the week?

Well, a month later and I finally have some pictures from our trip edited and ready to share with you from our week in Fuerteventura, staying at Magic Life. Starting a new job and enjoying Gentsefeesten have kept me busy these last few weeks!

The hotel was in Esquinzo, near Jandia, with beautiful beaches, a great view from our suite and so. much. food. Our first day was all about exploring the hotel, tasting the tapas and walking the beach with glasses of cava in hand (and giggling over what will henceforth be known as nudist castles). Though we only got in the water once (which was also only on our last full day there), walking the sand with my man was just the start we needed for our relaxing week.

I can't wait to share the rest of my photos! Expect some more posts in the near future - one featuring goats!

Packing List // Fuerteventura

We are finally, FINALLY heading out on a beach vacation for the first time in like three years - to Fuerteventura! To the SUN! Can you tell how excited I am? Do you see the title of this blog?

We finally booked it after I accepted a new position in Gent, which I'll start on the 3rd of July - the day after we get back. Let's hope I'm not looking like a lobster for the first day on the job. We're staying at an all-in resort hotel, which we've done before and liked, though I'm not sure how much time we'll actually be spending on the hotel grounds. There's so much to do on the island.

This week, with PJ out of town, I've been getting ready for the trip and daydreaming (plus napping) about all the things we're going to do - sunning, surfing, and sampling all the tapas I can get my hands on. Which also means that I'm prepping my packing list with all the summer shopping I've been doing. To be honest, I started shopping before we even booked this trip.

My absolute must haves for the week are shorts and swimsuits, though shorts are my summer staple no matter where we are. Add in a cute straw hat and some sunglasses and you basically have my wardrobe set for the week.

South Beach Straw Boater Hat with Peach Band (sold out, but I like this one and this one)
Embroidered Cotton Shirt (I. Am. Obsessed.)

This pink embroidered shirt is my everything right now. I didn't even need to try it on, I just knew - and Mango is killer for their tees right now - loving their graphic and slogan tees - I picked this one up a few weeks ago and have gotten so many compliments on it and the pink one above.

The rest of my suitcase will include a few dresses from last year that I just haven't had the occasion to wear, plus lots of greens, whites, neutrals, and all the other swimsuits I can stuff into it. And some sunscreen. Don't forget the sunscreen.

And with that, I'm off to get my nails done. I have a busy Thursday and Friday, with a new team dinner and workshop, then we head to the airport early Saturday. Only three more sleeps til I'm in paradise again with my love. Can't wait!
