- #SendMeAway ft. Triangl Bikinis...

Oh January, you're an odd one. Christmas is over, Winter's setting in and what's there to look forward to? How many of you have booked a Summer getaway? I can't stop thinking about being on a sandy beach right now soaking up the rays, cocktail in hand. I promise I'm not typically a misery guts, but this feels so far from reality for me right now.

As a child, I was lucky enough to be whisked away each year for a family Summer holiday. These are where some of my best childhood memories lie, which I think adds to my sunny beach/pool getaway craving. I haven't had a holiday like this since 2013 when I visited Malta, which also holds some fond memories as it was mine and Rob's first holiday together, and towards the start of when we started dating (shudder at typing that word...).

Ok, that's enough now. I can't bear to look through more photos, it's bad enough scrolling through my Instagram feed of various tropical destinations. I really can't complain though; 2013 isn't even that long ago and I've definitely had my travelling fix. In the meantime, I visited Sri Lanka, Thailand and China, so I've certainly had my time to explore. However, when Triangl recently sent me their truly gorgeous Poppy - Sea Spritz* bikini, I had a sudden urge to be paddling in the Mediterranean and just, well, relaxing.

So when I was told about the #SendMeAway competition are currently running, I leaped at the chance. Up for grabs is a holiday to a destination of your choice, plus an Olympus PEN E-PL7 camera. Yep, that camera that every blogger/vlogger/their pet pug are raving about at the moment. I'm not sure which I'm most excited about!

A blog post based on your dream destination of 2016 is classed as an entry, so as you can probably guess, this is mine. And as you've also probably guessed, my current dream destination is anywhere with a beach, pool and adventures. Just the other day, me and Rob walked passed adverts on the street of Dominican Republic and we've been itching to hop on a plane since! The scenery, the food, the white sands ... *continues dreaming*...

Entries posted between between 31st December - 14th February 2016 are accepted and I've been asked to nominate 3 bloggers to join in the fun, so I nominate Caz, Serene and Jasmin, but anyone can enter! I'll keep my peepers peeled for your dream destinations!

Where do you wish to travel to and why? Let me know if you enter this fab competition!
