With Debs season only around the corner it means only one thing and that is most girls all over Ireland are panicking about what debs dress to buy well that’s if they are as disorganized as I was back in 6th year. Basically got my dress a week before..wouldn’t recommend doing that.
Anyway I feel that online stores have really up their game in creating some stunning maxi dresses that can easily be worn for a debs and to be honest if I was back in school heading to a debs I’d be ditching looking for one in a boutique and I’d be looking online because I mean the dresses online are half the price of renting a debs dress or buying one and they are STUNNING. Also you don’t want to turn up to your debs and some Sinead girl has arrived in the same dress as you which is most likely to happen if you buy from a boutique because let’s face it all boutiques sell similar debs dresses. So think outside the box and order online and you’ll be guaranteed people will be asking you where you got your dress.
So I’ve searched in some of my fave online stores and managed to find some fab dresses that are either inexpensive or expensive because I’m sure some girls just can’t afford to be spending loads on a dress they’re going to wear once whereas if it’s your last debs it’s nice to just go all out and get your dream dress.
I’ve started with the inexpensive dresses and ended on the more expensive ones so just click on the image to shop!
Where do I even begin with this trip? Honestly it was probably the most eventful week of my life spent with
people that just made that holiday so good. Between hitting greenhills nightclub till 6 am, beach swims at all hours in the morning, a trashed apartment and just about getting away with not being fined for shouting out every lyric to the song “love druggie” at pre-drinks it’s safe to say we came back with no voices and not wanting to see another sex on the beach cocktail for a while!
How we got there
We travelled with Ryanair from Dublin airport to Palma de Mallorca. It was about a 2 and a half hour flight which was fine mainly because I slept the whole way. However the bus transfer was not fine. Everyone on the bus was staying at different hotels so every 20 minutes we were stopping at a hotel to let people off. It basically took forever! So if you’re willing to pay for a taxi I’d recommend doing so to get to your hotel a lot quicker.
Where we stayed
We stayed in the Apartamentos Deya which has casual apartments overlooking the pool and bar. Personally I loved the Deya because its perfect for people around my age group who are just looking to drink and party. The apartments are pretty basic, they’re modern and spacious. The bar down by the pool serves the nicest cocktails which are literally only €5. I wouldn’t call it a hotel to relax in mainly because there is always something going on so families should probably stay away lol!
Also word of warning if staying here expect to pay a 100 deposit and also a tax fee upon arrival due to some stupid law they have out there.
What to do
Basically there is tonnes to do in relation to drinking and seshing. You’re going to have reps coming around to you at the pool informing you about events. Word of advice don’t pay in full straight away for the event because what happened to us is when it came to the day of the boat party everyone in our group backed out and lost out on money whereas if you were smart and only pay the deposit then if you back out on the day you only lose out on like a fraction of the full amount!
Where we ate
Realistically this was the main part of the trip because this was a drinking holiday. We went out to bars and clubs in Santa Ponsa and Magaluf.
Overall a very memorable holiday! Very different experience to the usual family holiday that I’m used to.I actually managed to come back with some money but drinks are that cheap out there I’m not surprised. I’d definitely recommend going in a big group and try stick together or with at least one or two in the group especially in Magaluf because it’d be very easy to lose your friends in the sea of people on the strip.
Hope those tips were useful!
I’m finally back blog writing after being MIA for so long with college work just taking over my life. I finished up on my first year of college last week so I have some time to myself to write before I have to start studying for my exams at the end of the month.
I figured since I’m heading off to Santa Ponsa for a girls holiday at the start of June I may aswell do a blog post relating to that because I’ve been slowly preparing for the holiday by buying a few bits and pieces including some of my travel essentials that I always bring away with me on my carry on. Below are some of my must haves that I’ve always brought with me when going on holiday. Just click on the pictures to shop!
I bought this mask in Liverpool and used it for the first time there recently and it’s become one of my favourite sheet masks. My skin is always so dry from sitting in the sun so I’ll defintely be bringing a few of these to keep it hydrated!
Ive always brought a travel size shampoo and conditioner away with me on holiday in my carry on. They’re so small they can fit anywhere and they always seem to last me a good few days. I always go for a moisturizing or hydrating one because the chlorine from the pool always dries out my hair.
This is a must in my carry on mainly because you’re not allowed bring a big bottle of spray deodorant. This is so handy to use when away on holiday and I’ve found it works just as good as the spray deodorant. You can get this pretty much anywhere for €3.
A travel size can of dry shampoo will be your best friend on holiday. Keeps it from looking greasy and makes your hair smell amazing. For beach days I’ll be putting this into my bag just in case my hair gets greasy lying in the sun. These are available to buy in any pennys store.
If you’re going away to somewhere hot a good moisturizer is needed. I’ve used this one a few times on holiday and it always leaves my skin super soft. It contains aloe Vera and shea butter which is great for your skin after sun exposure. I also smell like mangoes after putting it on so no complaints there!
I’m one of the lucky ones who tans really easily so tanning oil is my best friend while on holiday. This is a new tanning oil that I found on Instagram and I’ve always been keen to try it out. I’ve heard so many great reviews about it so I’m excited to see what it’s like.
Never one to read on a daily basis just not my thing and to be honest I do not have the time. However on the plane I love to read and even when sunbathing by the pool or at the beach. I’m more of a fiction person but I’m interested to see what this book is like and who knows my mind set might be completely changed coming off that plane from Ponsa.
Have a great weekend guys!
