This is Palma de Mallorca, one of my very favourite cities ever.

And it’s SO good to be back!

Trailing down El Borne (our luxury shopping avenue) drooling over Louis Vuitton, Rolex and Mulberry (among others). Walking the gorgeous Palma cathedral wall and drinking in the sea view. Wandering through cramped and colourful cobbled streets to snap tiny hidden inner courtyards. Buying macarons in McDonalds (seriously) and shopping in Sephora and Mango. I love it all!

It’s been a quiet couple of first days, hence my lack of posting. The weather’s been grey and cloudy so I’ve just been catching up with old friends and spending time with Mum, really.

Went to the dentist yesterday. Riveting stuff.

But it’s brightened up a bit today and the forecast looks better for the rest of the week so, with any luck, Mum and I can get out tomorrow to take some outfit pics, visit my favourite spots and top up my (nonexistent) tan.

Fingers crossed eh? :)

    So jealous – I loved Mallorca when I visited a few years ago, have always wanted to go back since! I think its got a bit of a reputation for being touristy, but the lesser known parts are so so beautiful! x

    • The south-west of the island is VERY touristy (see Magaluf/Santa Ponsa!) but pretty much everywhere else is gorgeous :) Palma is definitely worth the trip and most of the north of the island is still very villagey and countrified. And stunning! xxx

  • Lovely pictures. The bracelets on holiday are always lovely and how cute is the chipmunk bag. I hope you are having fun Lucy x

    • Thanks lovely Lucy! :) the chipmunk bag was GORGEOUS and so incredibly fluffy haha. I was very verrry tempted by it xx

  • it looks beautiful. i have only been once but i really enjoyed myself. love that fan pic!

    • I should have bought one of them back for the tube really but I didn’t think of it at the time! :( xx

  • The place is beautiful! I have never heard of it before!!
    the chipmunk bag is literately to die for!! and I’m in love with those earthy colored bracelets! Lucky you!!!!
