Hello you lovely lot!

It’s one of the hottest days of the year in Ireland and the sunshine here in Dublin has everybody in a great mood. It really feels like summer has arrived at last! Ted and I had a chance to sit out in the garden enjoying some some sun earlier today…11391259_763453753751888_1542201044370148980_n

I’m beginning to prepare for my own summer hols at the end of this month, and that means stocking up on bikinis šŸ™‚


As I’ve mentioned previously on the site, I usually buy bikinis online as I’m not especially fond of those unflattering changing room lights that show up every single lump and bump! I never spend an awful lot of money on them either, because I’m such a water baby on holiday in and out of the sea all day, and the sea water doesn’t do much good for swimwear. They get pretty grotty and stretched looking after a while!

Boohoo.com is one of my favourite sites for cute and inexpensive beachwear and summer dresses, so I had a quick browse online for bikinis a few days ago. I ended up buying three different bikinis, which just arrived this morning. Amazingly quick service if you’re a last-minute panic shopper!

This is what I chose: 

1. Nepal Cut-Out Detail Bikini Set (ā‚¬27)

I bought this bikini in black last year and wore it so much that when I spotted it in white, I knew that I’d get plenty of wear out of it! A white bikini is a classic holiday staple and goes with whatever colour of beach dress, shorts or kimono you pair it with.P1090710

I would pair it with this coral pink fringed kimono from River Island (ā‚¬55) for a pretty summer look. Someone say pool party!?




2. Hawaii Lime Neon Contrast Strap Triangle bikini (ā‚¬24)

I looooove the tropical colours and thick bands on this bikini…P1090711

I’ll be pairing it with a bright kaftan, wedges and these super cool minty green retro shades (ā‚¬17) for a cocktail at the beach bar!


3. Bahamas Bold Stripe Enhanced Bikini (ā‚¬27)

The bright candy stripes on this tie-string bikini really appealed to me, and the top is padded to give your bust an extra oomph!



Wear it under these pretty Pacha scallop shorts (ā‚¬33) to bring out the fresh summery blues in the bikini šŸ™‚


I hope this has given you some inspiration for summer. Happy shopping!
