Easyjet Mallorca Clubbing Competition Win

It's crazy that nearly a month has gone since I jetted off to Magaluf for the second time this year...
It all started when I saw a facebook announcement on the BCM page that easyJet Holidays were hosting a competition to return to Mallorca...imagine my disbelief and elation when I got this email:

I chose to share this amazing prize with my best friend Michaela as end of school, pre-separation holiday of a lifetime!

We arrived at the Marina Barracuda hotel after a very long coach trip with the Resort Hoppa service (but at least we got a little tour of Magaluf on the way) and found out we had all inclusive! Sorted for the week, we set off to get ready for our first night out.

After presenting the confirmation letter and making friends with the guys at the door (Manuel pictured above), we were let into the VIP bar, where we met with the one and only Pimp Gee (Gordon Philips, owner of BCM) who allowed us free drinks from the VIP bar and introduced us to Nicola (below) who was in charge of the VIP area. She looked after us, making sure we had a drink in hand and had a great night every night.

We were let into the DJ booths upstairs and also downstairs in Millenium. Sven, 'the lighting guy' let us control the lights during the foam party. It was great to see the crowds going crazy for the foam and of course we got stuck in ourselves as well.

^ Majestic ^ 

Seeing the dancers up close was pretty surreal!

^ From the array of photos on my laptop, I couldn't help but include this bizarre sighting:
Two's company!

Our sleeping patterns got pretty messed up, getting up at 2pm and then napping again at 8pm only to start getting ready at 11pm...but somehow we managed it and still had enough energy to mess around once we got back to the hotel!

Others who didn't have free drinks secured for their nights out took full advantage of the bar in the hotel (sometimes even from 2pm by the pool...I don't know how they - and their livers - managed it!) and although we went down one night to see what it was like, we decided to avoid the sticky, wet floors and rowdy groups of 'LADS' and stuck to the drinks at the bcm :)

All whist enjoying the amazing view and booming music from the VIP lounge:

 Or alternatively, making our own drinks down in the DJ booth with some of the best vodka around: 

We weren't blessed with the most amazing weather in the beginning of the week but that didn't stop us from taking full advantage of being by the beach:

And any disappointments weather-wise were made up for when Gordon introduced us to some people you may recognise...
He wasn't joking when he said we would be rubbing shoulders with some 'famous faces'!!

Us with Professor Green and then G himself ^

We went for a bit of the usual Maga experience with some tacky merchandise and got wet in the foam and water parties:

But of course our experience was nothing like anyone else's (apart from the other two easyJet Holidays winners who won via twitter...although we never saw them around the VIP area) because we not only got to chat to the resident DJs' Doc C' and 'Babyface Nath' (below)...

...But we also were lucky enough to meet:

Eddie Halliwell 

Howard Donald

Katy B

Micky Slim

Laidback Luke

DJ Fresh

DJ Sammy

Nervo Twins

Judge Jules

When Gordon said to us on the first night, "This is going to be the most mental week of your life," we did not expect what happened next - which was the craziest, most fun, surreal holiday either of us have ever experienced. Safe to say Maga round 2 was ONE MILLION times better than Maga round 1 and it took some time to readjust to normal life (by catching up on a looooooot of sleep) with dreary clouds keeping us company.

This is a holiday we will never forget!!

This is the best place to go if you wanna sleep all day and party all night! 
(or better yet, party 24/7!!)

...or sleep on the beach ;)

Home to the famous BCM, which is the 7th best club in the world and throws the best popcorn, water and foam parties in its Millenium bar (bubble baths just don't compare!)
2 floors, laser light art shows, a 65000W sound system make an unforgettable clubbing experience.

Just a couple of hours after coming home I had my Maga playlist sorted on itunes and was searching flights to go back!! Been wearing my BCM t-shirts and have kept all the tickets in a box for memories' sake...Nearly suffocated in Calvin Harris crowds....nearly drowned in foam....Maga is MENTAL but in the best way possible - if you're not crazy for clubbing, you will be once you spend a few hours in Magaluf! I'm mad for Mallorca!
...Also got away with wearing very little clothing and had no questions asked when dressed up as a mouse and other creatures...pretty sure back home we wouldn't get away with this!

Mad music, wonderful weather, delicious drinks and party people!!! 

Local clubs do NOT compare to the likes of Magaluf, you HAVE to check out the deals over at easyjet: and the Mallorca Clubbing page too:
You could enter to win a week's stay in Maga with a friend or me, it's WORTH IT!
Picture yourself in a few weeks...would you rather be looking at something like THIS:
...oooor THIS:

Yeah, I thought so get clicking!

Do you want the truth or something beautiful?

Hey there munchkins!
So excited to have 5 followers already!
(post a comment!)
Thought you may like to read about my little venture to see
Paloma Faith in concert!

(n.b. I do not own or claim any rights to this image. All rights to Paloma Faith)

I went with my best friend Michaela, who is fabulous, as a birthday present for her (even though both out birthdays are in July...)

(Us at the St. Patrick's Day Parade...trendsetting with the hats-obviously!)

And then us acting perfectly normal after we got back from the gig

Off we trotted to see the quirky and cool *Paloma Faith* and got a nice surprise to see Eliza Doolittle as a supporting act!

Paloma was F A B U L O U S !

Her style, her voice, her personality - she was really funny, and even though she has a crazy, 'away with the fairies' look about her, she was really..normal! 

She rocked some HUGE blue sparkly platforms with lavish headwear galore!
I didn't take my camera as to not lose it - we were standing in about the second row..the audience was pretty varied...with a rather...erm, curvy, bald man belting lyrics behind us ;)

(again, I do not own this image. All rights to the makers of 'the simpsons' :)

If you haven't heard her music then, check out this video below (which I claim no right to - all rights to Paloma Faith)

She'll be back with a second album, and we got a taster which included a song about her and her cellulite which I thought was brilliant.
She introduced it saying that when an artist comes back with a second album, they either get dropped or they come back anorexic and then she added something like "Well, I've put on weight!" and burst into song about haring diets and the gym -- something a lot of people can relate to, I'm sure!

What music are you ladies loving?
Have a gorgeous day/night,
