LIFESTYLE: Benidorm with Gala Bingo

Last week Georgia and I were invited along for a few nights in Benidorm, courtesy of Gala Bingo.
We were up bright and early on Wednesday morning and off to the airport with a stag do in tow of course. We were on the plane by 7.30am and very excited for some sun!
As soon as we arrived we ran straight up to the room, put on our new bikinis (mine is Red Herring at Debenhams) and spent the afternoon relaxing by the hotel pool in 28 degrees. 
Luckily there were umbrellas everywhere so I could sit in the shade with my selfie stick while Georgia slapped on the oil and sat in the sun. I just cant handle it haha.
Soon enough, it was time to get ready for dinner before heading out to see what Benidorm had to offer. Initially there were a lot of older people and the music matched that but we managed to find one amazing club where all the young people were hiding. Sticky Vicky was the one thing that both of us had heard about before visiting Benidorm, although neither of us knew who she was - that night we found out - if you were lucky enough to see my snapchat (xxgeorgina18), you will now know who sticky vicky is too..
The next day was a little bit dreary so we decided to sleep in all morning and spend the afternoon exploring the shops. This holiday was a great opportunity me to finally use my new go-pro although I still have no idea how to use it but I did get a couple of good photos on it - all good practice for my next trip!
We had a busy night ahead! Georgia and I had been invited along to the Melia Hotel have dinner with some of the stars from Benidorm, the TV show. 
We had some pre dinner cocktails first
 I wore this floaty playsuit from Very and my favourite flats from New Look.
Gala Bingo were actually giving away the same trip that Georgia and I were on two some of their online players - you can read all about it here -  so there were actually 30 of us there plus the stars, a photographer and the lovely PR ladies!
 We made friends at dinner with a pair who turned out to be mother and son and they were hilarious. The four of us jumped in a cab and partied for the next few hours before I lost momentum at 2am - no doubt they stayed out all night. It was loads of fun! 
The sun was out and absolutely boiling for our third day so was spent it on the beach, eating froyo and fruit.
I took my glasses off for that photo so I couldn't see a thing haha. I have the same issue every time I go on holiday - its too hot to wear contact lenses all day but if I don't, then I cant wear sunglasses! I actually came across these SCLO before I left who do designer, superscription sunglasses - problem solved! How pretty are Lanvins Sunglasses.

Then it was time for a nap and to get ready for our last night out in Benidorm. It ended up a little big crazy so I didnt end up taking photos which is annoying. We spent it with a huge stag party who we couldn't understand. They were northerners and using all sorts of words that we had never heard of and we were all pretty drunk haha.

Finally on our last morning after a little rest by the pool in my amazing new Matthew Williamson at Debenhams swimming costume we checked out and wandered back into the old town for some tapas before getting our coach to the airport.
We both had loads of fun so a big thank you to Gala Bingo for taking us along.
