Mykonos Madness

In late August my best friend Georgia and I treated ourselves to a week away in the land of Mykonos in Greece and what fun we had! I can honestly say we had some mad experiences from partying backstage with Snoop Dog himself and dancing on stage to bumping into some old friends and taking a trip on their yacht to seeing Afrojack and Steve Aoki perform.

As first-timers in Mykonos we thought we were just going for a relaxing time in the sun, that is until we discovered the 'Ibiza style' party life. I have now done Ibiza and Mykonos and the equilibrium that Mykonos offers was just what we needed. With world famous DJs performing in the clubs every night we were able to catch a few in their 2 main clubs; Club Paradiso and Paradise. In addition to this you have the option to wind down and go for a beautiful dinner in the cute town of Mykonos followed my a few drinks in some local bars..lets not forget the gay bars (these were so much fun!!). There are also beach parties that happen similar to those at Nikki Beach in Marbella/St Tropez..so for such a small island there is an abundance of fun and hilarious things to do!

We stayed in a small and intimate hotel that was ever so adorable, a white building with blue pained shutters and balcony's it was a signature greek hotel (..literally everything is white and blue..I love it!). Our hotel was within a 10 minute walking distance from the town and a 2 minute walk to the bus stop. For anyone who hasn't been you can forget finding a taxi (it is virtually impossible), there are only 27 on the whole island meaning everyone gets around either by foot or via coach, quad bike or scooter, so expect manic roads with crazy drivers EVERYWHERE!!! We once walked for 2 hours, however the situation was so ridiculous that we were laughing hysterically the whole way.

I thought I would share a few of my experiences with you all and share some of our summer fashion choices from the holiday.
