Getting Away From It All & WIN A Polaroid Snap Camera


Sometimes you just need a break. A break from work, a break from chores, a break from crappy people, a break from all the shite, a break from life.

This year, my boyfriend and I weren’t able to take a proper holiday because we spent a fortune last November on a trip to Australia and Hong Kong. It was the trip of a lifetime, but it did mean that we had to tighten the pursestrings and reign in the expenditure in order to pay off the credit card debt. Therefore, I had resigned myself to the gloomy prospect of zero holidays or city breaks. First world problems.

Fortunately, my prayers were answered and I received a lovely 30th birthday present courtesy of my in-laws. A trip to Espagne! Off we went to the Costa Del Sol for 3 days where we ate, drank, sunbathed and shopped. Everyone needs a bit of time away and this one couldn’t have come at a better time. I returned feeling rejuvenated and ready to embrace life’s trials and tribulations once more….or at least until the Christmas holidays.


I was fortunate to receive a little treat before I left from the guys over at Canesten HQ, consisting of a Polaroid snap camera and a cute little freshness travel pack.

It’s not something that I’ve ever touched upon in this blog, probably because I’ve felt too embarrassed to do so. However, there are frequently times when you’re left feeling a little uncomfortable due to hot weather, humidity and tight clothing. It’s not nice and it can spoil an otherwise perfect day.

Canesten are a very well known brand when it comes to feminine hygiene. They create products that are designed to remove any irritation and discomfort, so you can get on with your day and do what you do best. I’ve always been an advocate of the brand and have used their products for years. The wipes are especially handy for popping in your handbag, so you can go about your business feeling happy, comfortable and confident.

The polaroid camera was a nice little touch and I was delighted to be able to bring it away with me and capture beautiful snaps of the beach, spanish architecture and culture. I’m even happier to announce that the guys at Canesten have agreed to give away one Polaroid camera to to my lovely readers!

All you need to do to enter is follow the instructions below. The competition will end at 11.59pm on the 4th November and the winner will be announced the following day. Good Luck!

    A day walking along some of the Jurassic coastline always helps to clear my head.

    My mum wants to escape at the moment, so I’d take her across the tunnel and find some lovely town in Belgium. Eating and drinking x
