Beach Life

 Hello my lovelies!

It’s fair to say that life’s a beach right now!

I’m spending so much time on the beach, swimming and then drying off in the sun.  Sun-dried Pout!

You must be getting a little bit fed up of my two swimsuits.  But they’re pretty much all I’m wearing.  
The days are scorcheracious.
So if I’m not on the beach wearing them, I’m at home wearing them in the garden and around home, keeping cool as best I can. 

I love that these swimsuits cover me up so well that I can decently wear them from beach to car simply by tugging on a pair of shorts - or in my case longs. 
The décolleté cover makes them wearable like this and it also protects that thin-skinned area from any more sun-ravaged wrinkleness. 

Not so easy to sort out are the wrinkles in the new Blogger update. 
I’m keeping post content simple at the moment whilst I attempt to come to grips with it all.  
As another blogger wrote yesterday, it’s difficult to navigate this update without any hints or tutorial. 
Perhaps this may be the final straw that gets some ladies to leave Blogland. 
Hobby bloggers like me don’t want to spend money on a bought platform like Wordpress.  We don’t earn a penny from blogging and unless you’re a avid blogger with something pertinent to say to the world, it makes no sense to spend money on blogging in addition to the time already spent compiling posts. 

Moan over.  Onwards and upwards my friends.  Meantime, please bear with the weird formatting and sometimes scarily oversized pictures!

Because right now, life’s a beach.

A la perchoine,
Mary x. 


  1. Loving the combo of swimtop and longs! Very summery indeed. x

  2. It sounds like you found a key to staying somewhat cool, by living in your swimsuits.

    1. Well Terra, I haven’t posted for a month as I haven’t really got out of swimsuits since!!
      Hugs, x.

  3. Hang in there. We love your posts. Cute bathing suit too.

    1. Aww that’s so sweet to hear, Wiz. I’ve taken a months’ break as I pretty much stayed in swimsuits for the rest of the summer!
      Hugs, x.

  4. Mary I am so envious. This is the first year where I haven't had a dip in the sea or any trips to the beach. How lovely to be able to enjoy the hot weather by the sea. Re Blogger, well I resisted it for a while and kept to legacy version. Now I have to use it. It's a pain finding out how to do things. This morning I unpublished a post by mistake, and to publish it again means it has today's date. Not good. I don't know why they couldn't send out or share some guidance on navigating the changes.

  5. We miss your posts. What’s new?
