Summer Holiday 2015 | Instagram

I have been back in the UK for a couple of days now (sob!), so thought I would pick up my blogging mojo with an Instagram update post – (for those that aren’t following me already, come find me @justinebalfour). I had an incredible 2 weeks in Tenerife and look forward to sharing different aspects (hotel, outfits, sightseeing etc.) over the next few weeks. I hope everyone is having a fabulous summer and I am loving reading lots of sunny themed blog posts – keep em coming!


The day before I jetted off, I booked myself in for an early morning spray tan appointment. I chose the Sienna X Express Tan as it is a natural golden colour and only needs to be left on for 2-4 hours to achieve a subtle glow. I also gave myself an at-home shellac manicure & pedicure, opting for the colour CND Tropix. As we had an afternoon flight, I booked us into Hickories in Chester for breakfast – this is Pauls favourite restaurant, and seen as it was his Birthday the following day, I couldn’t resist! The crispy bacon and maple syrup pancake stack is incredible! Naturally we needed a selfie as we pulled into Manchester Airport Jet Parks before hopping on a shuttle bus to the terminal. I was a little anxious at wearing white to travel in, but I had no food disasters and it showed off my tan beautifully. The fourth photo was taken on Monday morning from my sun lounger entitled ‘I could think of worse Mondays!’.



I couldn’t resist another cheeky selfie on our third evening – here I am wearing a neon pink flowery skater dress that I bought from Select. We spent our fourth day exploring Las Americas and Costa Adeji, and I chose to wear my black and white beach dress from Primark. We did make a quick stop to one of the beach front bars for a cocktails! Pina Colas are undoubtedly my favourite holiday drink – both alcoholic and non-alcoholic varieties! I was planning on putting together a couple of blog posts whilst I was away, but we filled our days with so much that I didn’t get around to it. I did manage a Beat the Heat post detailing this year’s holiday essentials which you can read here.



You can take the girl out of England, but you can’t take England out of the girl - I had a fry up every single day with the most delicious frothy cappuccino and fresh apple juice. We loved Costa Adeji so much that we made a second trip in our Rental Car. This particular spot was postcard worthy and below sat the most gorgeous hotel with double bed loungers and a Jacuzzi pool. On our journey back to our hotel, we stopped at Monkey Park (an attraction not advertised by Tour Operators, but well worth a visit!). They had small monkey enclosures you could walk through – it was certainly one of the most personal wildlife centres I have ever visited. Finally, I picked up the Roberto Cavalli Exotica in Duty Free and it became my holiday scent - since I have returned home, I think back to such incredible memories and experiences each time I spritz. It was certainly a holiday I won’t forget.
