Shopping in Ibiza

I recently went for a quick break in Ibiza with the family, to get a bit of sunshine in before the hardwork of uni fully kicks in! 

I bought some lovely stuff while there that I thought I would share with you! I also went out today and bought some lovely merino and lambswool jumpers that I'll post later this week for you. 

First up I stopped by Bershka Men's - the shop is lovely, small and cozy, dark and smells like hollister. They have some really lovely men's clothes, blacks, greys, leathers, knits. A good array of choices, I originally went in their to buy a jumper for Dad but ended up leaving with a lovely tee for myself as well!  

It's a blue (although looks grey on the iPads terrible camera!) which fades into a light greyish/blue colour, with a very flattering scooped V neck, and a small pocket. I bought a small for about €15 and I like pairing it with denim shorts and ankle boots in the sunshine, or skinny jeans and a big knitted cardigan in the cold. 

As always I had to buy myself a silver ring! This time I went to Ron Ibiza ( and treated myself to a silver and copper ring with a dappled surface and smooth gold coloured bands sat around the center of it. This was €35, expensive yet good quality so I don't mind paying the extra.

I also bought some la Roche posay effaclar A.I local area spot treatment - I really like the product and it's working well with my effaclar Matt moisturiser that I bought late September. However I recently discovered that they are not a cruelty free brand and therefore will not be repurchasing either, or buying from la Roche posay again. Next time I will be looking at Philosophy and Aesop for skincare as these are cruelty free and are both brands I've been wanting to try out, Liz Earle also. 

I did buy some beautiful suede flat ankle boots while I was out there however I don't have a photo of them! They're lovely and simple, a basic boot shape with a nice slouch to them and two buckles. These were €80 and from Natura, another beautiful shop in Ibiza town. I was in desperate need as the current boots I'd been wearing had been worn to death and the sole had split on both boots - they weren't real leather so there was no point in resoling them. I was contemplating repurchasing the same boot for €30, but really rather preferred leather as they last longer and wear better. So after hunting EVERY single shoe shop in town we stumbled across these leather ones which were practically a replica of my favourite ones! Perfect. 

I also bought some sunglasses from the back streets of Ibiza town, at he base of the old town. A lovely little shop with great offers, sunglasses from €15 or 2 for €20 offers, really great styles too, they're all just rip offs of designer ones but they're a good quality, quite solidly made. I bought these Carerra copies, I loved the reflective lenses and he huge frames! 

So that's all for now! I'll try and show my new jumpers soon, I've also done a sneaky bit of sale shopping so I'll update you with those two! 

I'm also thinking of maybe doing a post on going into the final year of uni, how I've planned my time for this term etc if it might be of any use to somebody?
