Yassou from Crete

IMG_6688

Well after a long day of travelling and a three hour delay we finally made it to the beautiful Island of Crete. I can't say I am the best traveller as I am slightly terrified of flying but it never stops me… I just squeezed the life out of my poor boyfriends hand for the duration of the four and a half hour flight.

When we finally arrived the sun was up and I had forgotten the night with no sleep. I wanted to go exploring my home for the next two weeks. However five minutes into the apartment and I was fast asleep! 

As we missed most of the beautiful sunlight, my first set of photographs for you are set in the evening time. It gets dark very early in Greece so I hope you can enjoy my first outfit with the help of the flash on the Camera.
We are staying in the stunning traditional Cretan village of Koutouloufari, where it seems like the future hasn't quite reached yet. The winding streets are cobbled and narrow and the beautiful old style Tavernas serve the most delicious Greek cuisine.
For the first evening, I opted for a tiger print dress from boohoo.com, with my favourite diamante sandals and a bag from GAYA which I purchased on my recent trip to Dublin. I accessoried with a statement necklace from Closet Clothing, a Guess watch and a Diamante bracelet from Topshop.
Can you guess my final accessory? Ok I'll tell you… Its a fake ponytail hairpiece!
Probably the best invention for someone like me with lots of hair and little talent for styling it. On Holidays with swimming every day my hair turns into a ball of frizz and this ponytail is the perfect and convenient way of fixing that! A must-have addition to anyones suitcase!
I also made a new friend on the first night in the shape of a beautiful ginger and white cat! Check him out posing in the photographs with me!
Enjoy and I will soon share with you some stunning scenery from this Beautiful Island.
