I know, I know.. I’m late with my Instagram round up post again! Sometimes I just cannot keep up with blogging at the same time as normal life. I feel like I at least have an excuse this month as I went away on a girly blogger trip to Prague at the beginning of September so I’ve been a little busy. More about that coming soon!

Last month I went on my sunny summer holiday to Jamaica, and of course I spent the weeks leading up to our departure date preparing for it! I meticulously planned everything from the outfits I’d need, the beauty treatments I wanted to book, and the general packing I had to sort out before we left. So here’s a little breakdown of how I prepared for my holiday and my summer holiday essentials.. including my new phone which stayed on for a…
