Styling a candy bikini

I'm a candy girl in a candy world ♥︎ 

Welcoming this look from Candyland; wearing sweets has never been such a sugar-rush rollercoaster! The days of eating 90s candy bracelets and bikinis are dead, in the new millennium we wear them as style inspiration instead. The beaches are a blast of blue, so long as you bring your candy shades with you. In this post I'll be sharing what to expect when you visit Candyland, with a few top tips thrown in ♥︎

Bring sugar-screen 
The weather forecast for June hits tropical temperatures, so don't forget to bring your sugar-screen and sunhat! On a cloudy day expect rainbow drops with the odd flying saucer zooming overhead. Bubble jugs are provided when temperatures hit blistering heights and chocolate umbrellas are stacked near the sherbet fountains when it rains candy canes. 

Pool a pink diamond! 
Jelly rings not your thing? Pink diamonds are a hotter alternative, buried deep in the sparkling seas. You'll have to battle through bubblegum webs and pink shrimps to unearth yours, but I can confirm it's 100% worth it when you reclaim your booty. As you can see I took up the challenge and the glimmering pink diamond was worth every mermaid-escapade. 

If your bikini snaps... 
You can pay a visit to the Love Hearts, always sickly sweet, they'll fix you with a brand new candy bikini. The candiest babes ever, they'll even take a few candid shots of you in your candy bikini if you ask nicely. Candyland is full of sugarcoated souls; some good, some bad. Stay away from the sours, with their acidic attitudes, and the frosties with their glacial air. The Nerds and Dweebs are just misunderstood, and all the Astros will lecture you about scientific matters. 

Candy killings 
Don't worry, you don't get hundreds and thousands of murders at Candyland but if you see roads sealed off by Hubba Bubba tape, you'll know some serious Gum Girl sh!t has hit the fizz whizz. 

Hit the fairground!
Carousels of caramac and sugar plum funfetti, what's not to love? Candy floss carts and sugar plum pixies dispatched at various marquees. 
Music & entertainment 
WHAM plays on a constant loop around Candyland, with occasional melodies heard from The Sugababes and The Sugarhill Gang, not forgetting lots of bubblegum pop! Movies such as Candyman  and The Sweetest Thing are broadcasted now and again, with ridiculous re-runs of My Super Sweet 16 on a constant loop.  

I hope you enjoy your trip to Candyland!
