Marbella Haul!!

Hola senors & senoritas,

This post comes to you from the Marriott Playa Andaluza which is a resort in Costa del Sol, Malaga, Spain. We’re in the middle of a quick – trip to Spain and I must say we’re loving life! The weather is hot but with a cool breeze, the food is oh so tasty and the talent is definitely exotic haha.

Yesterday we went shopping in Marbella central and ended up spending almost €600 or so between us all, eeek!! We were out for a long time, about 8 hours purely dedicated to shopping, and we were absolutely exhausted by the end of it. We went to a lot of different shops including Mango in the early afternoon, only to find out that there was a siesta from 2-4:30. After a quick pit stop at Burger King for a few refreshments, we stumbled into the boutique next door. It was a cute little boutique manned by a perky woman called Rebecca who had managed to fall in love with my little brother, she thought he was sooo cute. And while we began to look around the shop, we were amazed at how much there was hidden behind the seemingly ordinary. We got quite a lot from this store,and any time I come back to Marbella we are definitely coming to this shop.

After 3 hours and almost €400 we plodded along the busy Marbella roads visiting many other shops until we passed a curious little vintage shop. We looked inside and found lots of cool things, but not really anything that we would wear, then Temi found a little suitcase, chock full of scarves. There were loads of them, silk, cotton, square, triangular we had a fiesta going through the contents of the suitcase, until we settled on 5 scarves. We were really happy with our purchases 😀 everything seems so much cheaper in Marbella, and that’s even me thinking that the Euro has the same strength as the Pound.  This is what my sister and I got in our shopping spree:


Snake-skin purse (not in picture) – €9.99

The scarves were definitely our favourite buys, I dropped one of my favourite scarves on the road outside our house and it had gotten run over multiple times before I realised. It was time for a new favourite and I think I have found one in the brown printed scarf. There’s still loads more shopping to do, presents to buy and paella to eat here in Malaga. Until then,

Adios amigos (and amigas)
