Hi everyone, long time no speak. How has everyone been? I am *officially* back. The last 3 months have been insanely busy/ stressful/ distracting but we are back. With a start of a new business venture, graduating with a 2.1 all whilst working. Blogging has ended up on the back burner. But I am BACK and I wanted to share an exciting life update, I went to Ibiza for my 22nd birthday, and I wanted to give you some serious holiday inspiration (especially as it is so bleak and rainy outside!)
First up I want to say a massive thank you to LY Travels for planning this whole trip for me and my bestie Bridge. Lauren really pulled it out the bag to make this trip an INSANELY good trip. Make sure you follow LY Travels here on Instagram, and get booking for your next staycation or holiday abroad. (Especially now restrictions have changed!)
Anyways, back to Bizaaaa... there are so many amazing memories and highlights I want to share with you... Including the endless supply of Sangria, the vibiest and aesthetic pool clubs and my holiday #ootds.
Day 1: The Hotel & Las Mimosas
For those who are anxious about flying in this post pandemic world, it is actually *super* easy. But I am not going to bore with the documents you need etc etc etc. Our trip was smooth sailing, and we arrived at our Adults Only Hotel 'THB Naeco'. To be honest, we knew we wanted to spend our days out so we weren't that interested in having the coolest hotel. However, the hotel was clean, had lovely views, and the half-board meal options were great.
On our first day we went for a lunch at the boutique hotel 'Las Mimosas' recommended by LY Travels, and well, we liked it so much we stayed all day. It was chill Grecian inspired vibes, ideal for the relax needed after waking up at 4am. I had a bowl of delicious ravioli, and a jug (or two) of sangria was drunk, before we both lazed about on a day bed. What more could you want?
Day 2: Paradiso
A new day, and a new venture to a pool club. 'Paradiso' is one of the places I KNEW I wanted to go to. I have seen it plastered on the gram and well, the vibes are *immaculate*. Initially we were going to stay at Paradiso, but after one day there we decided we made the right decision. We wanted to have a good nights sleep! The hotel is inspired by Art Deco, and is a very trendy, on brand and instagrammable. One of my many requests was that there was insta opportunities, and Lauren did not disappoint!
The food here was to die for. Bridge and I had gyozas, Poke bowls, and SHOCK more sangria! The music was a mix of dance and 80's classics and we had a ball of a good time. As we went out in the day, we paid for half board at the hotel, and dinners were also rather lovely from fresh salads, creamy risottos and tuna. We were living the dream.
Day 3: Birthday @ Wiki Woo
Ahhh, my 22nd birthday! What better way than to celebrate than at 'Wiki Woo', aka the boutique hotel with attitude. And God, does this hotel have SASS. (I loved it of course!) I do feel as though every influencer I know has been here, but I guess they know their clientele. We had pre-paid for a luxe day pass, and it was so worth the price. The cocktails were beautiful, the pool area was a different level of fun, the food was delicious (we had nachos, fish finger sandwich, duck wrap, and chicken tenders) and well, it was my birthday! To all the females reading this, this is the place to go with your gal pals.
After a day at Wiki Woo, drunk off birthday fun and Pornstar Martinis. We went out to Ibiza's own version of Revs for more drinks, music and way too many Jagerbombs. There was a sore head pending.
Day 4: Boat Trip & Mint Lounge
Our last full day of enjoying the sun, and we went on an all inclusive boat trip with two sore heads, one of the worst hungover, and a sunburn on the way. But it was so worth it. We enjoyed the ocean, the sangria, the Ibiza coast and the sun. The boat trip was a perfect end to the busiest of days. (Shoutout to LY Travels for planning our itinerary.) Does anyone find you need a holiday after you go on a holiday? I feel as though I am still recovering...
For our last night we wanted to celebrate our holiday with a dinner out at 'Mint Lounge', it was utterly breathtaking watching the sunset, the food was amazing. I had salmon and bridge had octopus. It was a great end to the a perfect trip away. And I am already missing it.
But back to reality, and more blog posts pending. Watch this space. Love Molly...
