✨Holiday prep wishlist✨: spray tan, manicure, pedicure, eyebrow appointment, new sandals, buy an appropriate new bikini, get a bikini wax 😳, having everything washed, packing everything neatly into packing cubes, a toddler that cooperates and is helpful, cleaning the house for when you get home, pre holiday champagne in the airport with a big stash of magazines and novels for the trip 🥂 .
.✨Holiday prep reality✨: only getting to the leg shaving stage of spray tan prep [an achievement in its self], trying to find the nail clippers and a nail polish that isn't so old it has separated. Eyebrow appointment - cause once you start getting the slugs done you just can't miss an appointment 🐛. Packing the only pair of summer flats you have - havvies - whilst declaring you are totally going to treat yourself whilst away knowing you probably won't. Last years bikini that might earn a few dollar bills with current out of control pregnant boobs ⚽️⚽️. A quick and inaccurate bikini line shave, having a huge pile of washing that most likely has everything your husband needs to pack in it (zero packing done by said husband), packing way too much stuff into the suitcase whilst a toddler screams "NO MUM" and takes everything out whilst you say "fucking holiday" ungratefully under your breath even though are actually REALLY grateful for a much needed holiday 🤸🏼♀️. Deciding that you will just clean the house at 9.30pm when you return home. Shoving in un nutritious fast food at the airport to fill up the toddler and only stocking up on peppa pig related activities and pencils that don't actually work 🤗
