Mallorca: Day Two


Here you have the second installment of my holiday diary.

On holiday, I always have to go and visit a local market; I think it's been instilled in me from every family holiday I've been on- my parents love a good market!

Inca is where Mallorca's big market is held every Thursday but since we flew out on Thursday morning and were leaving again the following Thursday, there wasn't really an opportunity to go.

As we were lucky enough to have the resort's main bus stop right outside our hotel, it was pretty easy to get to nearby towns so we looked into other markets and chose to hop on the bus to Son Servera which wasn't too far away.

Son Servera holds a pretty large market every Friday with stalls ranging from jewellery, pottery and handbags to amazing local food and produce.

I bought one of these dreamcatchers!

All the stalls selling meats and cheeses have loads of samples for visitors to try- you could get a pretty good free lunch out of your trip if you wanted to!

Love a good churro- Spanish doughnuts for those not in the know. We had some of these amazing massive chocolate filled ones. Unsurprising that I put on about half a stone on this holiday!

Here's a few shots from back in the resort (S'illot). The second was the least sunny day we were there, though it was still nice and hot.

Sunglasses- Ray Ban
Pineapple print dress- ASOS (now in sale)
Leather backpack- charity shop

This was one of my favourite things in the resort. There was a little stretch of water running parallel to the sea with a bridge you could walk over- complete with it's own duck house! So cute that all the ducks loved it so much, they were always sitting on it!

Into the Night

This is what I wore in the eve...

Wearing my new fave Mac lippie (it's a creme sheen one called 'Lickable') and purposely did my holiday nails in a colour to match!

While we were in Son Servera, I managed to stumble across a Spanish charity shop. I didn't go hunting for one- honest!

It was pretty jumbled with just piles of stuff everywhere and no prices on anything. There were loads of folded jeans stacked up all over the place and eagle-eyed as I am, I spotted a pair of Levi 501s!

I decided that they probably wouldn't cost much so it didn't really matter too much if they didn't fit so grabbed them and took them to the cash desk and I was actually blown away- just €1! What's that, about 80p?

When i tried them on back at the apartment that evening and they fit like a glove, I couldn't resist wearing them out.

Earrings- House of Midas
Mesh top- Boohoo
Bandeau top- Tinned Bananas
Belt- charity shop
Levi 501 jeans- charity shop
Sandals- Vagabond

Thus concludes day two! Hope you aren't getting bored of these coz err, there's the rest of the week to come.

To be honest they're grating on me a bit- I'm bored of that bitch on holiday while it's raining here even though it's just me a few weeks ago!

  2. Interesting post!! I guess Mallorca may now appear on the itinerary of summer visiting Europe in the spring :) The north of the island at the right time really is superb for the travelling birder. For my next post I will bring you back to the less sunny conditions of the UK.
