Instalife | #1

Last Updated on by Carly

Summer 2015 was a bit of a turbulent one for me, but after spending some time in Marbella and coming home to a brand new blogging room, I finally feel ready to get back to the blog! So, I thought what better way to kick things off, than with an ‘Instalife’ type post. I love seeing peoples Instagram pics, and finding out what the story is behind them, so hopefully you guys do too! If you’re not already following me, you can find my account here. My name is @CarlysBeautyBlog, which isn’t very original I know….


So…. I’m writing this in the freezing cold UK (wrapped up in a white fluffy blanket!!) and reminiscing about our sunny holiday in Puerto Banus. As you can probably tell from the pics, we stayed in the most fab Iberostar hotel in Marbella, on Coral Beach. The location was perfect for us, as it’s close to the luxury shopping malls and marina. It’s also great for partying, and a bit of celeb spotting (if that’s your thing!). I bumped into Hollyoaks star Nikki Sanderson on a night out in Linekers one year when here. Anyway, this hotel is highly recommended, especially if you like to go all inclusive like we did. I’m not sure my waistline agrees, but I’ll let the scales be the judge of that!


Previous to the holiday (which we booked about three weeks before leaving), I indulged in some last minute shopping because I was really in need of clothes. I got some white crochet shorts (as shown in the pic above) from Boohoo (also purchased in black!), and these mixed stripe, and tribal print flippy shorts too. I also picked up this bamboo beach kimono from ASOS, which was a bit of a steal, as it was reduced from £50.00 to just £14.00!

Ollie and I had such a lazy time on our hol, mainly eating and drinking, but I also managed to read a couple of books. Rediscovering my love for Sophie Kinsella and her Shopaholic series, I chose Mini Shopaholic and Shopaholic to the Stars. I don’t know about you, but I find reading the perfect way to relax. Only, normally I opt for blogs over books!

Let me know if you like these types of posts in the comments section below, and if you do I’ll make it a regular thing. I’ve got loads of exciting beauty related posts coming up, and I might even do a cheeky little room tour of my brand new office. Exciting times ahead!
