I’m always interested to see what other people buy on holiday. I for one, can’t go home without some little treasure as a reminder. This is what I bought on my Mallorca trip.
It all starts in the airport. Did you know that Manchester Airport now has a Jo Malone counter? Fatal for me. Can’t walk past it! I treated myself to some Red Roses cologne and soap and had a great chat with the very knowledgeable assistant about aromatherapy. Really wanted to buy a travel candle but surprisingly they don’t stock them at the airport.
Hmm – jewellery. I have loads of junk jewellery but can’t seem to resist another piece. Turquoise is my stone of choice when in ‘boho’ mode, so this 4 euro necklace from a boutique in Alcudia Old Town fitted the bill.
My next purchase was this fishy ceramic bowl – hand painted by the lady I bought it from who was selling them on the roadside near Valldemossa. I have a bit of an eclectic mix of vintage and newer Mediterranean pottery in my kitchen so this will fit in nicely.
Finally, local nougat. When in Rome and all that…..
I’d love to see your holiday purchases!
