Travel diary – Nerja Spain

Hi! What a crazy few weeks its been, we’ve just come back from a 12 day trip to Nerja in Spain then had a hectic weekend in London!
Those of you wondering, Nerja is on the south coast and almost untouched compared to the typical brits abroad seaside towns you often see in Spain. It was by far one of the most relaxing and quiet places I’ve travelled to, just chilling on the beautiful volcanic sandy beaches was just divine!


We stayed in a really pretty apartment that was fairly high up so we had some beautiful views and gorgeous sunsets. Sitting out on the balcony, with a chilled glass of vino is just heaven for me although I struggled to sit and relax (annoying personality trait!)



We spent many a day chilling by the pool but also visiting some beautiful beaches around Nerja.

Driving down the coast past Nerja towards Torox, we stopped off at a beautiful beach, I’m not sure what the name of it was or if it actually had a name but it quickly became one of my favourites. The sea here was a little rougher and would be awesome if you were keen on wind sports, not so relaxing when your trying to look chic Bond girl style and getting hit by massive waves!



Ah! And the food! Those of you who know, understand how Neil and I plan our lives round where w are going to eat! This holiday was no exception, the food was out of this world!

My favourite dining experience (and we did a lot!) was by far Restaurant 34 at the Hotel Carabeo in Nerja town. The hotel itself is stunning but walking down to our table was just unbelievable and totally unexpected. There are a number of different areas to eat but the balcony right at the end of the hotel sees you walking through beautiful ivy arch ways, stunning (very small) swimming pool and down to an incredible sea view! It’s a must if you ever visit Nerja!







Thank you for reading, I didn’t take many photos of my outfits I’m afraid. I’m just not good at holiday outfits, no matter how hard I try! Planning for heat isn’t easy so I tend to throw on anything and hope it works! You can spot a few of my poor outfit choices on the holiday video below that was lovingly produced by my very talented boyfriend (still working on him becoming an Instagram husband like Jay Z!).

I have a few beauty and fashion posts coming soon!
