Sister Love @ Palm Beach

I’ve been meaning to join the linkup hosted by Emma for ages, but seemed to keep missing the prompts. I’ve finally got my act together and noted that this month’s theme is love. Now, you may have been expecting me to write about one of the many fantastic trips I’ve gone on with my beloved husband.


If you know me, you may know I like to do things differently just because. Today, I wanted to share a different kind of love with you. Sister love!

Sister love is… gambolling in the ocean


Sister love is…. taking photos of each other being stupid. Selfie time!


Sister love is… not caring that one’s flab is showing, skirt has gone see through and hair is sticking up in crazy peaks and whirls


Sister love is… having exactly the same mannerisms without realising


Sister love is… not getting a parking ticket for the illegal park you swung whilst gambolling


Sister love is… not minding that the inside of the car now resembles a beach itself


Sister love is… an amazing kind of love

    haha love the taken at the wrong time shot at the end! This is a really sweet post. I have a sister too and it’s a special bond, I’m so grateful for her 🙂

    It’s wonderful you got to come out and spend some time with your sister too 🙂

      The camera never lies! Sisters are the absolute best. I’ve no idea what I’d do without mine, and I’m so grateful I got some quality sister time on this trip.

    I loved your twist on the link-up theme! So many precious moments. You are so lucky to have each other. This post made me nostalgic about not having a sister, or a brother for that matter! 🙂

    • 1st February 2016 / 22:34

      Oh no, sorry! It wasn’t supposed to :/ I’m SO lucky to have my sisters, but I have no brothers so I have no idea what I’m missing there. Life is a patchwork of different relationships 🙂 Glad you liked the twist on the theme!

      Ha! I mean otherwise I was so close, right!?Just keeping it real around here. Glad you liked the post 🙂

    • 1st February 2016 / 22:34

      I’m so pleased! I loved writing it. Celebrating relationships is one of the best things in life, in my opinion.

    This sounds amazing! There is nothing quite like sister love! 🙂

    • 1st February 2016 / 22:35

      Yay for sister love! It was an amazing day. I wish I could go back!

    • 1st February 2016 / 22:36

      Aha lucky you! They’re the best, aren’t they?

    • 1st February 2016 / 22:37

      I mean really, without the setting you just have two people who are old enough to know better jumping about and looking silly for no reason. It’s all about the setting! Palm Beach is one special place.

    As much as we fought when we were younger, I seriously don’t know what I’d do without my sister now! It looks like y’all had such a fun time just being goofballs on the beach! I also love that you had your camera sat on a timer, so you could these awesome pictures of you being you!

    • 1st February 2016 / 22:39

      It was definitely Paddling Therapy. We just totally let loose. I might patent that one, actually- I think it could have great therapeutic benefits! Then nearly killing ourselves laughing at the resulting photos was good for the soul, too. Yep, definitely going to patent this.

      I’m glad you liked it! Sisters are awesome, but I don’t mean to make you feel bad… they have their down sides too!

  6. 2nd February 2016 / 03:14

    Aww, very cute! I also have so much love for my sister – they really do make life better 🙂

    • 4th February 2016 / 10:51

      They so do! I’m glad you have a sister too 🙂 yay for sisters!

    • 4th February 2016 / 10:51

      Oh lucky you! I’d love to spend a summer with my sisters. But getting all of us in one place at one time is worse than herding cats…

  7. 2nd February 2016 / 15:46

    I got all teared up reading this! What a beautiful love you and your sister share. I adore the photo of you two with the exact same posture! I always wished that I had a sister, but I’m really lucky that my brother and I are so close.

    • 4th February 2016 / 10:51

      Haha we’re suck dorks. Sisters are amazing, but I wish I could have a brother too sometimes. Having 3 sisters, sometimes an alternative gender option would be nice! It must be so cool to have a brother you’re close to, you are indeed lucky!

      I really did! It’s one of my favourite places ever. And with one of my favourite people! I’m so pleased you enjoyed it 🙂

  9. 2nd February 2016 / 21:51

    love this – great idea with the photos – we sometimes do that and leap in the air but this is a really good idea just to capture some fun in the sun!

    • 4th February 2016 / 10:53

      Yeah I thought a twist on the jumping would be fun to see. I’m definitely trying this idea again – it was so much fun going through the photos afterwards! I mean the beautiful beach helps too of course..

  10. 2nd February 2016 / 23:08

    hahaha you are totally a model. love palm beach, so gorgeous. no sister for me, but this post is lovely 🙂

    • 4th February 2016 / 10:55

      Yeah who am I kidding – just waiting for my contract from Select in the post any day now. Palm Beach is sublime, so much blue. I love it there!

    Sister love is one of the best – I miss my little Sis!
    (Ps. We love having you on the linkup – shall I pop your onto our topic email list?)

    • 5th February 2016 / 19:01

      I know! I miss my sisters a lot and I don’t see them half as much as I’d like. And, yes please to the email list! That’ll be why I keep missing the prompts then, won’t it?!

    • 5th February 2016 / 19:03

      I do! In a way, yes – but they’re all quite a bit older than me, and their clothes were hand-me-downs to begin with, so I ended up with a wardrobe full of dodgy bleach washed high waisted 80s jeans :/

    • 5th February 2016 / 19:03

      Me too! It’s awesome to have a ready made travel buddy 🙂

    • 5th February 2016 / 19:03

      Oops sorry! If it’s any consolation it made me miss mine a lot too when I wrote it!

  12. 5th February 2016 / 18:06

    Awww, this just makes me want a sister…or a sibling of any sort haha! Such adorable, carefree photos! Also, that last picture of you is actually lovely 😀 x

    • 5th February 2016 / 19:05

      Sorry about that :/ What I love is that it was an adorable, carefree kind of day so the pictures really sum it up wonderfully. I’m so glad I have the pictures to remember it by. Aren’t cameras an amazing invention?!
