50 shades of blue – Photos of the week
I am feeling a little bit “blue” this week. The cold has definitely arrived in England and I definitely feel a bit under the weather. So, to cheer me up a bit, I have gathered some photos of my actual favourite colour – blue! Blue equals blue skies and lovely water, so definitely nice things! And it seems that my clothes are indeed in 50 shades of blue.
I am a little homesick as I haven’t been to Portugal for 3 months, which is the longest ever. I was due to go this weekend, but not feeling well, I rescheduled – don’t want to be there and not enjoy it to the full. I really miss my family and can’t wait to go back.
I had a lovely time in Portugal earlier this year and really miss the sea. I love the British countryside and all, but I do miss the sea. And it seems that blue is also the colour of a lot of my summer clothes.
From the Mediterranean sea in Italy, all the way to the Pacific Ocean – I love this picture I took in La Jolla, just outside San Diego. It is one of my favourite places in the world, and I can’t wait to go back next year. Do you also have a special far away place? Would love to know where it is!
And how could I not mention pools? After a 5-year hiatus, life took me to Barcelona 4 times this year and I discovered a fantastic hotel, which made me feel at home. This photo was taken on a recent 36-hour super quick trip with my girls, where we had a fabulous time sipping cocktails by the pool deck at sunset.
From Barcelona, to Rio de Janeiro, of course, where I started the year. This is one of the most beautiful cities in the world and a firm favourite in the O’Reilly household. We have been a few times and really want to go back again. South America is one of my priorities for the next couple of years and would welcome any advice, as I have only been to Rio and São Paulo (yet!).
Blue is also the main colour of the cabins of my favourite airline. I recently got to fly in a special seat – 1A – and worry not, you will read all about it soon. I loved the navy cabin, and my navy pyjamas.
And last, but not the least, I will never forget this view in South Africa. Going to the Cape of Good Hope was very meaningful to me and delighted I was able to get there, on a recent trip to Cape Town.
So, there you have it Not 50, but quite a few shades of blue, my absolute favourite colour in the world.
Hope you have a fantastic weekend, wherever you may be!
