Blast Beach, sounds intriguing right? A beach you’d have a blast on? Partially close! A scenic and infamous stretch of the Durham Coast has been used in globally famous films across the years and has undergone a major clean up. Read on to find out why you might recognise these shores.
What is worse than trying to get from your sun lounger to the pool across 20m of scalding hot flag stones? Oh er nothing? Thanks to this ungodly holiday torture, flip flops are the first things I pack for holidays.
This year I tried Havaianas for the very first time…..
When summer comes round, I usually aim to have at least one beach holiday where I can lie by the pool and forget all my stress back at home.
For the trip down to the pool or when the day turns chilly into early evening, I like to have a selection of cover ups. I know there is a huge selection to suit everyones taste, style and budget but I prefer kaftans. They are floaty and keep you cool as well as suitably taking you from day to night after the beach. I like to wear shorter length kaftans with denim or linen shorts for sightseeing and day trips as you don’t get too hot if you have to cover your shoulders and be more modest for cultural visits and if you get the chance to cool off in the sea or pool, a kaftan can act as a beach mat, towel and top as they dry so quickly!
Drawstring kaftans can look sexy at a beach bar undone to show off a bit of cleavage as you’re sampling the local cocktails to cool down. Long gone are the dowdy frumpy styled kaftans, they are big news baby!
I keep the same staple pieces year in year out but this year New Look are stocking some fantabulous pieces that you should check out if you are on the hunt for a cover up.
