France Day 4| Chatelaillon Plage

T-shirt/Skirt:New Look, Sunglasses/Sandals:Primark, Necklace:River Island, Bag:Fran&Jane

I'm going to keep this one short and sweet. We travelled down to Chatelaillon Plage just down the coast from La Rochelle.  It was such a lovely day and a great chance to top off my tan walking along the beach! I kept this relatively simple with a loose T-shirt and floaty skirt. I added a pop of colour with a statement necklace and added a pop of pink with my all time favourite Lippy "Candy Yum Yum" from Mac.

France | Day Three

It was a scorching day today today, so there was only really one thing to do. Sunbathe! I'm not a sun worshipper really, but I need a bit of down time so plonked myself by the pool for the better half of the afternoon! It was really peaceful and I even nodded off for a bit
After Breakfast (2 Eggs,Toast, a Banana, an Apple and some Mint Green Tea) I was fuelled up for the day. I had a rather late breakfast so it was really more of a brunch! We went into town to the Supermarket to get some more food (i.e Chicken and Pancakes for me!) so after that I hit the pool!I forget to bring a cover up away with me so just threw a Kimono over my Bikini just while I run from the house to the pool. It's only a stones throw away though, but I'm not partial to running around in the nip on holiday's...any more! It's light and airy so it's not too warm in the heat making it perfect for both day and night.

To get the minimum amount of tan lines I chose my strapless bikini from Forever21+ I love pretty much everything about it. The High waisted bottoms are perfect for gals who are a bit tummy conscious and the strapless top is great from sunbathing. It comes with detachable straps so if you want a bit more support! I'm not going to harp on too much about being bikini confident like I've done the past few years. I think all women should be able to rock whatever they want. Whether you're plus size, slim, have big boobs, small boobs, a big bum, no bum etc... It doesn't matter what you have or haven't got just wear what you feel comfortable in and enjoy the sun! The only person you need to be concerned about is yourself. So if you feel good in a bikini wear one! Confidence is key :)
The Pool was absolutely freezing (Aren't they all?) but it was too hot outside not to take the plunge and cool off. I hate being cold and there's nothing hate more than jumping into a cold pool! If only that was my only dilemma every Monday afternoon! It takes a fierce bit of balls to put a close up of your bod on the internet, but I had to show you the lovely pattern and the frill detail, plus I'm comfortable in my body, so why not show it off ;) The frill detail is a nice feminine touch, but also takes the eye away from your stomach which is clever! I would however really recommend the straps if you were doing anything other tan pool time and a dip in the pool as it's not that secure! 

The Pool is the perfect size. It;s not too deep either so if you're like me and don't want to always get my hair wet you can walk the entire length without going under. I do like going for a good swim but sometimes I just want to cool down my body and not have my hair go cray with the Chlorine!  I had a lovely chill Monday's where my emails went unanswered and I didn't have to worry about anything other than what I was going to have to eat for the rest of the day. When I go home I've 11 weeks left before I'm off travelling for a couple of months so I suppose I've that to look forward to!
