Thanks for your question.
Unless there was an agreement between you that the money she spent on you would be repayable then she would not be able to claim these monies from you or have any appreciable prospect of success in issuing a claim against you. IN the absence of agreement all such presents are simply gifts, not loans with expectation of being repaid. If she gave you things but made those gifts contingent on you staying together then she would be able to claim them if you have now broken up but I assume this is not the case.
The "loss of earnings" she is attempting to claim is nonsense, plain and simply. It was her decision to go on holiday with and she must therefore be responsible for the financial impact of the decision.
I would venture to suggest that this spurious claim comes as a result of your break up and not on any legal advice she has received because she would not be advised to do what she is doing.
