And so it draws to a close.

After almost 4 weeks in Northern Cyprus our vacation is over.  It is bitter sweet – I’m excited to get back to a routine and see our dog, but I’ll be sad to leave this beautiful place.  We have seen more than I ever imagined, eaten fabulous food and met some wonderful people.

On Sunday we went out to our local restaurant for the penultimate time.  Remind me to never drink raki again – I’m not sure why I ever thought it was a good idea?



Sandals – bow cage sandals from Marks and Spencer // Trousers – Mango // Tank – H&M

See if you can spot the errors in the meze menu – regardless of how it’s spelled it tasted amazing I promise!



Nasty, nasty raki.




On Monday we headed out for a drive, via Bufavento and Five Finger Mountain, towards Kantara again.  Just when I needed it most, we serendipitously stumbled on the most perfect restaurant nestled between the mountains.  They served the coldest Efes and the tastiest Lamaçun – perfect for a girl still suffering from the effects of raki!

Dress – New Look (Just 9 GBP in the sale!!)

So today we must pack our bags and lie on the beach one last time soaking up the rays of the Mediterranean.

I probably won’t post till I am back in Atlanta, and we’re taking our time getting there with one last stop at my Mum and Dad’s.  In the meantime you might notice that James Perse are having another sample sale – there are some amazing discounts – you can access it via the banner ads on the right.  Also Boden have released their Fall collection!! For free shipping and 15% discount, again use the banner ads to the right.  Enjoy!

      Thank you Kristine! It really was amazing and it was lovely seeing the children assimilate to a new culture so well. As for raki – ’tis the juice of the devil. NEVER AGAIN.

      We made it back safely Helen – though the flight was horribly bumpy due to storms here – it seems we have left the great weather behind us!

      Thank you! And it was bliss – though I was ready to return home – 4 weeks without home comforts is quite a long time:) The trousers were cheap as chips in the Mango sale – so comfy and light – perfect for holidays! x

      Thank you so much Helen – I enjoyed documenting it! I’ll be back to full blogging mode today – though the jet lag still lingers – it’s a weird feeling! x
