TAGS:

Now’s life guru Katie Piper has just got back home after a week’s holiday on Cape Verde, a beautiful island off the coast of Africa.

‘With how cold it’s been in the UK, the super-hot weather was a shock to the system, but it was so relaxing to take some time out from work and just laze on the white beaches with my boyfriend,’ Katie, 29, tells us.

‘Although we’ve recently moved in together; we both work full time so don’t see each other that much.

‘It was so nice to switch off – I lost track of the time and the days. 

‘I couldn’t get a signal on my phone either as we were in the middle of a desert.

‘I did miss Twitter and catching up with my work emails but it’s good not to be dependent on it and to break the addiction.

‘I feel like a new woman and I’m now refreshed and ready to get back to work.’
