Holiday Blues

I have just come back from the most amazing holiday with the girls. With all this rain I can't show the very rare bit of colour I have.
It was so nice to get away to some sunshine and time to relax, as fabulous as Hong Kong was it was not really a restful break more of an adventure. 
It was my friend Micha's 30th birthday, so to celebrate we decided to go to Hvar Island for 6 nights. Hvar, Island is set in the Adriatic Sea just off the the coast of Croatia.
There was not one cloud in the sky for whole duration of our stay, now I have the fully fledged holiday blues! I adores boats, and was lucky enough to hired a private boat for just us girls, it was one of the best days ever.

The only thing that kept me going this week was that Lala and I went to see the beautiful Paloma Faith perform at Somerset House. Being an open air venue we were very fortunate that the rain held off. Jessie Ware supported her, which was a bonus as I have been constantly playing 110% and even posted the video HERE
