I’m not sure what it is about pom poms that makes them so addictive. If you read my holiday post, you will know that I recently visited Cyprus (and got some amazing pom pom slippers). As it was our 4th time to the island, I knew it would be very hot and that I’d need a sun hat. A pom pom sun hat.
My hat was pretty standard with a flower decoration (I actually purchased it in Cyprus in 2013!).
I was ruthless and ripped that right off and decided to make it waaaay more cheery with some pink and cream pom poms. I used some cotton yarn from my scraps and glue gunned them on. Easy!
G and I recently took a week off to take a break in Cyprus. We usually start our holidays with a donut tradition at the airport. So indulgent!
There was a heatwave for the entire week with temperatures hitting 42 degrees some days!
This pink flower is everywhere and I see it every time we visit Cyprus.
We relaxed, ate plenty of amazing food and took bike rides along the seafront.
There are a whole ton of cats in Cyprus and they are super friendly.
We visited the handmade markets and found some wonderful art shops filled with work from local artists.
Macramé bracelets were very popular at the market!
I usually pick up some handmade lace at the markets.
Some of the pieces are so intricate and beautiful.
The pretty lace is surrounded by handmade leather sandals, olive oil soaps and herbs.
I also couldn’t resist these handmade pom pom slippers! I will save them for the winter.
The benefits of a heatwave – amazing beach sunsets.
We had a great time and relaxed as much as we could. I’m already planning out next break for 2015 – I’m desperate to go to Disney! Let me know where you are taking your summer holidays this year in the comments below.
