Sleeping in the sunshine...

Thursday, June 10, 2010

Apologies I have been gone from the blogosphere for too long, the reason being I have been having trouble sleeping for the past two weeks, I dont know why but its leading me to suffer from migraines and I feel pretty much awful. (hence no outfit post today)





So on a happier note I have finally paid off my holiday! In July Dave and I will be heading to Cyprus for two whole weeks. I CAN NOT WAIT! So although I do love reading posts on peoples favourite summer items from designers and the catwalk I personally cant afford them. So I wanted to feature items that Im actually considering buying for my holiday, items the average gal could afford.
It the first board above are items I love from Matalan, not shying away from prints
I love the nautical tunic dress and think this would be great to throw on over bikinis for the beach. I also am in love with the Biker boots, maybe not essential for Cyprus but at £18 I think they are essential in my wardrobe!
Second board of images are brands on asos, I love shopping online because you can search out the item you want easily.. I really want loose high waisted shorts that will keep me cool in the heat so I picked these inky blue SugarHill boutique ones, I also choose a plain white v neck tee as I actually dont own one and think it would be a great basic for my holiday. Plus I tend to burn so tee shirts with a slight sleeve suit me better. I still have alot to get but I cant wait to go!! What
are your summer holiday essentials? Id love to hear! :)

Hopefully ill be sleeping better by then! If anyone knows of any tips or tricks on getting a good night sleep bar the obvious sleeping tablets (which i may have to resort to soon) please let me know ill try anything!

  2. Lovely choices and booking a holiday is so exciting! I booked and paid for mine a week ago and I'm off to Corfu for the week - can't wait!
    I'm going to Matalan this weekend I think so shall definately keep my eye out for those items. I always pack far too much swimwear but I think shorts, pretty dresses, loose floaty tops and sandals are all you need for a summer holiday :)

  3. I wish i had some advice for your problem but i'm dealing with sleeping problems too and i don't know how to solve it eihter.. It's very anoying and i know how exhausting it is. Hope you get better soon. I'm so excited about your vacation program with dave^! I have a friend who visited Cyprus and LOVED it ^^ and i hope you can find all the items you want for your summer wardrobe :) For me, i think this summer i'm not having vacations so, i'm not even thinking too much about it... (bah)
    So, anyway, i wish you have a great time there!!

  4. love the sea blue sandals!

    for a good nights sleep
    -avoid TV, music, internet, turn your mobile of an hour before bed
    -have a nice bath and mug of horlicks
    -have a window open for fresh air
    -go to bed an hour before you want to go to sleep, just to relax. if you get stressed visualise putting your stresses on a boat and watch it go float away
    make sure you don't oversleep as it'll slug you out just as much :)

    enjoy your holiday. ,bet it'll be amazing!

    and in reply to selling on ebay, I've tried but it's soo hard!

  6. I love matalan and there stuff. a sleeping trick is to stretch each part of your body for 5 seconds then relax and move on the other so like knees then feet then whole legs etcc

  7. Nice collages indeed, your choices of shoes look good!
    I hope you get better soon, and have fun in Cyprus even though it's still a few weeks away!

  8. I feel I always sleep better when I exercise. (Before dinner time as to not prevent sleeping with endorphins.) Also, try not to worry about not sleeping so much. The more you worry, the less you sleep, so if you're able to just relax in bed without stressing that you're not falling asleep you'll get back into a pattern more easily. Hope you feel better!

    (Vacation always helps with sleeping issues also!)

  11. I'm sorry to hear that!! I'm a very light sleeper so I wake up frequently at night! My remedy is to work out really hard or run or do all sorts of rigorous physical activity so that you're so flat out tired at night that you're asleep no matter what. My summer basics for summer are similar to yours and I'm practically living either my bikini top with denim shorts or just oversized tshirts...xxoxooxxoxoxo

  16. Hope the migraine goes away and you enjoy your holiday. I have trouble falling asleep too and often I find herbal tea helps :)

  17. Oh no! I'm so sorry you're not sleeping! I actually do deep breathing, sounds crazy but it often works. I just slowly, deeply breathe in and out. Fabulous post for not feeling well, Vicki!

  19. Great picks! I'm loving stripes and florals right now. With the sleep problem i usually drink herbal tea before bed, its even called "sleepy time tea"..if that doesn't work I usually go for a run or some kind of exercise to tire me.
    your holiday sounds exciting! Hope you have an amazing time xx

  38. Sorry to hear about your sleep disorder. Perhaps you ought to get a blood test done if it prolongs itself. Have you had your iron, magnesium and sugar levels checked? Lovely post for one who's lacking sleep. XX
