Gran Canaria Photo Diary

I am finally back after nearly a 2 month hiatus since my last blogpost, a lot has happened during my blogging break;  such as finishing my finance work placement, moving back home, and starting Summer work experience in Legal accounts until I return back to university for my final year.

Last month, we went to Gran Canaria for a week and stayed in the town of Puerto de Mog├ín aka 'Fishing village' at Marina Suites Hotel.  On arrival we found that our Triple room was upgraded for free to a suite with an amazing view of the Marina.

Although 7 days flew by quickly,  we were able to appreciate the picturesque beauty of the country.

We spent a day in the Capital (Las Palmas) which was very cosmopolitan, modern and included  high street stores such as Zara, Mango, Blanco, Pull & Bear, Berksha, Inglot Cosmetics.  We also visited the old town of Las Palmas which had some pretty historic buildings; plus that day they were filming a Spanish TV show.  

We did not go on much excursions as we already done the local attractions on our first visit to the Island when we were younger; but we did go to Aqualand Waterpark again, which was so much fun. On the last day we took a bus to El Mirador, the largest mall on the island to visit the one & only Primark. If we didn't go with hand luggage, we would have had a major splurge as there stock was amazing!

We really enjoyed Gran Canaria especially the weather & beaches, you can see more holiday photo's on my Instagram including my mini Primark haul (here)

Love, Peace & Besos

Furla Crystal Candy Bag

Let me introduce you to my latest purchase.....

Furla Crystal Candy Bag; from the Sunset Collection.

I love the gorgeous Blue/Grey ombre colouring which amplifies the opaque design of the bag; especially when I wear it in the sun. The glossy coating ensures it constantly shines come sun or rain.

The bag arrived in a white Furla dust bag ensuring it was scratch and dust free; even the Candy Tag was nicely wrapped for protection.

Another key feature is the quality of the rubber; it is strong, sturdy and firm. However, I will not overload the bag in order to preserve its longevity. The size is perfect for me and similar in size and shape to the Louis Vuitton speedy.

My favourite part is the special golden 'F' padlock due to its secret locking mechanism.

What's your favourite bag for summer?

Hugs and Kisses
