Couple kissing on the beach with the waves overlapping their feet and the sun setting in the background

The lovely people at Clickstay are holding a competition asking bloggers ‘which Clickstay villa they would choose as the official love island villa’.

Holiday packing in two suitcases

Holiday Packing Going on holiday or for mini breaks are fabulous but packing my luggage is not so fabulous for me!
