48 HOURS IN IBIZA | SWIMWEAR365


Swimwear365 have challenged me to show what I would get up to, if I had 48 hours on the sun-kissed party isle of Ibiza. Tight schedule, but not impossible - and well, I sure do love a challenge. I can think of plenty of things that I would do if I had the chance. I'm a very spontaneous yet plan-ahead kind of person, so here is my jam-packed fun itenary. I haven't been to Ibiza before, so dreaming of the Paradise island and being whisked away from the concrete jungle of Leeds is a pure fantasy - and I could really do with an injection of sun, sea and sand in my life! For many, Ibiza means endless partying and terrible hangovers. I do love a good night-out, and I probably would hit the world-famous Pacha club just to experience the most popular party place on earth. But, if I had the opportunity to visit, I would definitely spend more time exploring than just being hungover in the hotel room! Whether it's relaxing on a golden beach and dipping in the crystal blue waters of the Mediterranean, or visiting the Old town and wondering down the hippy markets. Ibiza has a massive cultural charm other than its labelled party-lifestyle. This year, massive A-listers from Kim K to Orlando Bloom have been at the hot-spots, so it seems to definitely be the place to be....



Thursday 11th of September:


13:00 - 16:00 :

After arriving from the airport, I would drop my suitcase off at the hotel and freshen up, ready to see what Ibiza has to offer, (and let the gleaming sun brighten up my milk-bottle skin!) I would head straight out to unwind and explore the old town markets! I love collecting trinkets and souvenirs - I pretty much always collect a fridge magnet from everywhere I visit. The famous hippy markets and winding cobbled streets is something that I would love to experience.



I would then find a small, local Spaniard restaurant to have a bite to eat of classic Paella. When in Spain eh! Here is what I would wear whilst wondering down the narrow streets of the Ibiza old town, a cute embroidered kimono to cover up my shoulders and a thin dress so I'm at a comfortable temperature.

16:00-19:00:

Time to hit none other than the Bora Bora Beach club and sip on some exquisite cocktails - or for me, my signature drink - martini rosso with a dash of lemonade ;) After spending a relaxed afternoon chilling on the sandy beach of Playa d'en Bossa and getting used to the Ibiza atmosphere, it's time to head back to the hotel to start 'prinking!' ( in other words, pre-drinking!) You can't go to Ibiza without sampling the night-life.

20:00 - Till Late:

Coloured hair extensions? Check. Crazy Makeup applied? Check. Countless tequila shots? Um, Double check! It's time to party. Ushuaïa club is the hottest place to be, and none other than world-famous DJ Armin Van Burren is lined up to be there on this night - perfection! 

(yes, that is me, and yes, I did paint my face just to show how I would look!)




Friday 12th September: 

09:00-12:30:

Time to get up bright and early, no time to waste! After dragging myself out of bed, and grabbing some breakfast, It's time to get ready and face the day. After spending the most of yesterday exploring around Ibiza Town, it's time to get adventurous on the beach. I'm not talking sunbathing and dipping your toes in the sea. I mean Paragliding, jet-skiing and snorkeling. All the fun water-sports stuff! I've always wanted to try it, so why not! What better way to get rid of that hangover than flying in the air and crashing into the sea?! A little birdie tells me that San Antonio Bay is the place to be for fun activities like these. 


But of course, you've got to look stylish whilst getting splashed about! A loose-fitting kaftan, a Swimwear 365 bikini and a pair of Havianas flip flops seems to be the best option - and of course, not forgetting trusty waterproof mascara! Not forgetting swimwear, I would wear a pretty bikini from Swimwear 365 - this is a personal favourite, especially after developing a tan - clean and simple white is the perfect contrast! The added white and pearl pendants really make it Ibiza style. You can see it here.

12:30 - 13:30:

Quick stop for lunch at the infamous Cafe Del Mar, and of course, a wardrobe change back at the hotel!

13:30 - Till late:

What better way to round off the last Ibiza evening than a fun-packed boat party?! The best one on a Friday is supposed to be the 'Ibiza Rocks the Boat' that departs from San Antonio. After rocking away on the spanish waves for 3 hours, the party then continues on with the W.A.R. We Are Rockstars gig at Ibiza Rocks Hotel. What could be better?! Here is what I would wear at the after-party gig, a very cool off-duty monochrome look.

Saturday 13th September

9:00-13:00:

After having a last minute dash to enjoy and relax in the sun, sea and sand, sadly, it's time to say goodbye to the party island! But that doesn't mean you can't look good in the Airport! I would wear these funky-blue Topshop Co-ords, (plus the beachy wavy hair, having just literally come from the beach!) and my staple wardrobe item - the clean, white blazer. Perfect for when the air conditioning get's a bit chilly on the plane home!
