Holiday snaps!!


Hello! Hope you are well and enjoying autumn so far.

I finished off October with a wonderful family holiday to Cyprus and what a week we all had! Sadly, the weather was rather hit-and-miss – typical as the week before we were there it was wall-to-wall sunshine! Having said that it definitely didn’t stop our enjoyment, and as a family we just really enjoyed our time together.


We stayed in the area of Ayia Napa – often people think of it as a party resort but I thought it was very family-orientated. It was a wonderful mix of chilling by the pool (and taking it in turns to play with little Ruby), sharing meals together, going for walks and even enjoying a day at a Roman-inspired waterpark.


Hope you like the photos. I love the ones of Ruby with her lovely personality so full of fun, and then my older niece Jasmine who at 12 is just too cool for us boring grown-ups!


Here’s a photo of us all using Ultrasun – I was on the Family 30 as always whilst the children had Ultrasun SPF50. It’s so great knowing they’re safe in the sun. Make sure you stock up if you are going away seeking some winter sun.


Also, here’s a picture of my favourite holiday essentials, all of which I used whilst away.


Sarah Chapman Ultimate Cleanse – this product’s a great way to remove sun protection, sand, sea salt and sweat. It did a fantastic job of keeping my skin glowing whilst on holiday.

Josie Maran Infinity Cream – I used this SO much on holiday; on dry feet, lips, and hands and even as an overnight serum to lock in that tan!

Liz Earle Gentle Exfoliator – I used this more frequently on holiday to help my skin get a deeper tan, but also to deeply cleanse my skin after the beach and pool.

Liz Earle Men’s Body Wash – this is holiday in a bottle for me, a perfect way to refresh your body morning and evening.

Margaret Dabbs Foot Hygiene Cream – I came back from holiday with softer feet in better condition than when I went.

Flora Mare Body Cream – the perfect aftersun; hydrating and smells reminiscent of the sea!





Do you have any trips coming up or will you be travelling to see family in the coming weeks?

Drop me a message, I reply to all comments.

Big hugs

    Hi Craig,

    Looks like you all had a wonderful time! So important to make the most of family time when the kids are young and growing so quickly!

    I am enjoying the first picture the most….it looks like the lady on the right is trying to make the most of your back being turned and pinching your food! 🙂

    I have recently been introduced to Margaret Dabbs Hygiene cream too, it has changed my feet! I am also using the nail serum which is amazing! Well worth trying.

    So glad you had a good holiday in Cyprus. Your nieces are great little girls, children always make holidays a lot more fun. I like the Flora Mare hand cream but haven’t tried any of the other products yet. Are they good for sensitive skin? Always enjoy your shows Craig and your blogs. Have a good week and take care Sue Xx
