Now, it’s no secret that I’m not a fan of a tan. I can’t think of anything worse than having a patchy colour, peeling bits, looking ashen with face powder… and don’t get me started on tan lines. Eurgh!!!
So when it comes to ideas for a honeymoon, quite a few of the traditional ones have been knocked off the list. A week on a beach somewhere would surely be beautiful and relaxing, but there is only so much lounging on a beach you can do when you’re constantly dragging your sun lounger around trying to stay under an umbrella.
Instead, we’ve had a couple of other ideas, and one of the favourites? Japan next spring in time for cherry blossom season. The sight of cherry blossoms on the trees after a long winter is always a treat as well as a reminder that spring is on the way (or perhaps not this year, considering they were in bloom after a mild January, and there’s been barely a hint of summer so far) so added to some striking Japanese temples, a Tokyo culture shock, and wall to wall Hello Kitty, it’s pretty much guaranteed to be the once in a lifetime holiday of my dreams!
The only problem? I’ve got to wait until 6 months after the ‘big day’ before we can go on the big trip…
I’ll have to make do with the prettiest bath and shower gel (EVER) in the meantime.
L’Occitane Cherry Blossom Bath and Shower Gel (a late birthday present from H. Who doesn’t love a late birthday present? It’s like a present for no reason!)
It’s almost too gorgeous to use!
