**All pieces worn are from River Island's swimwear collection**
Countdown to Ibiza is in full swing. I have been biding my time, waiting for the right moment to start holiday shopping. So when I heard about River Island's X Pacha blogger competition, I decided to have a nose round their website. After several ohh's and ahh's and 'oh I need this', I thought I'd head to their store in Cardiff and have a feel for the clothes. Lucky I did because, as soon as I saw the pieces, I knew it would be perfect for those infamous Ibiza pool parties that I just so happen to be going to.
The swimsuit was the last one on the shelf, so I nagged it before anyone could notice it. The critic in me really appreciates the mesh detailing in the middle of the swimsuit, its a comfort knowing that no one will notice I have had a kebab every night since the start of my holiday.
But my favourite has to be the lace shorts. As perfect as they are over a swimsuit, I have a feeling I am going to wearing them even when I am no where near a beach!
As tradition, every year me and my best friend pick our summer song, and every year we argue about which song is better. This year she went for Disclosure's absolute classic: "Help me Lose my Mind' but I went for Young Summer 'Waves that Rolled you Under' (Backstroke Remix). Just give it a listen and trust me you will feel the urge to pack a bag and find your nearest beach.
How else has started planning for this summer?
Lots of Love
