Day 1: the journey

I have now come back from Dom Rep and omg it was amazing. The beaches there were the best that i have seen in my lifetime so far( next year i am thinking bali and thailand so you never know) and the people there were just lush. Its just a shame that my spanish only consists of hola and si.
Is it just me but do you guys find that as well as the horrible jet lag you have to deal with, when travelling to far destinations for you holidays you also always seem to loose two days spendt travelling there and back. On this holiday me and my brother decided that we were going to take advantage of everything our holiday had to offer and it started of at the airport.
As soon as we were through with security at the airport i had two missions 1) replenish my makeup from and treat myself to a cheeky chanel since it was duty free. I mean it would be a crime not to! 2) buy some duty free alcohol to have both on the flights and also bring back home with us for my going away party :). Seeing as how i was feeling tired i also had a cheeky Iced Soy Latte or the journey.

I know that there are some people out there who actually enjoy plane food but sadly i am not one of them. I was happy to have my almonds, whisky and Pringles rather than the 'thing' they told me was baked cheese soufflé. It didn't look like it to me but the whisky and the fact that they were playing my fav film on board meant that the flight there was very enjoyable though not too comfortable.
Can you guess what film i was watching? give you a clue- do you want to built a snowman?
Dont you just wish that our airports looked like this? One thing i will say about Dom rep.. its breath taking. Although i will say they have to expand their airport since i dont fancy waiting in the plane for half an hour when i go back again as it nearly killed me the first time.
I am sure you guys won't be surprised with my travel outfit but you know me. i like basics and comfort and this was it for me.
Top-ASOS, Leggings- H&M, Bag- Zara, Shoes- Primark, Hat- H&M, Sunglasses- H&M

On our first night we went all out so much so that my brother never made it to his room. The excitement got to us and we made some pretty cool new friends with marcus and his wife and my barman enrique was kind enough to ensure that we were never without a drink. This was also the first and last time i would wear any makeup for the whole trip and it was simple too hot for anything and i spent most of my time either in the sea or pool so there wasn't much point as well.I think you will all have to agree that we hit the ground running.

I hope you are all having a good weekend and 
Talk to y'all soon.
