Holiday Inn, Kiev

~ this post contains affiliate links ~

So, Marks just had a little business trip over to Kiev. I must admit when he first told me he had to go to the Ukraine I was a little worried, naturally. But all was fine. Kiev doesn't seem to have any problems at the moment, but I really don't want to get into that side of things, because I really do not have the knowledge about it all! I do though, want to share with you a little about Marks stay.

Mark was only there for the night and stay at the Holiday Inn in the city. Kiev has two airports. He flew into Boryspil International airport and out of Zhuliany International Airport. They say they're only 30 mins away, but allow for traffic as it's closer to an hours drive. 

Hubby definitely recommends the Holiday Inn, it was clean and comfortable, friendly staff and in a good location, right in the centre of the city. 

As Mark was there for work he didn't really venture out of the hotel. After breakfast (which was very tasty apparently!) the following day, he did nip outside for a quick look and said there's the most beautiful Catholic Church right around the corner. 

I must admit it looks stunning and I really want to visit Kiev now. Us Brits don't need a visa for the Ukraine, so it could be a good little trip to accompany hubby on the next time he goes! It's about a five hour flight from the UAE.

Getting motivated to exercise

Getting motivated to exercise for me is probably one of the hardest things. I don't know why, as in my head I'd love to be one of these fitness girls you see all over Instagram all happy, bouncy and always raring to go. I always feel good after I've exercised so I really don't know why it takes me ages to get myself motivated. I'm 39 now and I know I need to lose weight. I'm not drastically overweight it's more of a personal thing. The usual story that my clothes are getting snugger, I'm out of breath a lot quicker after just doing the simplest tasks and I'm snoring a lot more at night, which my doctor did say could be because I've put on a few extra pounds. Over the last 9 years I've actually put on 20 lbs! That's crazy isn't it. The weight has literally been sneaking up on me and the fat has gradually been moving in a pound at a time. Crafty little thing really.  It has got to the stage where enough is enough and I need, probably fo

Choosing a name for your blog

Read more on my  Disclaimer/Contact  page ~ Since writing the post ' Blogging tips ~ Basic/Beginners'   I keep thinking about the part about choosing a name for your blog. If you've been here a while you'd know that this blog was originally called Suncream and Sparkles ~ which I have written about why I changed my blog name  here . Even though I do love my new blog name and I don't regret changing it I do wish I had taken more time and consideration in the very beginning when first starting my blog, or at least before buying the domain. You see blogging, even now for me who's been doing it for a fair few years, it really is a constant learning curve where you're always discovering new ways and new ideas to tweak and improve your blog. If you're debating on what name to choose for your

Restaurante Jardin, La Zenia, Spain

Last week after passing Restaurante Jardin for the last six years we actually got round to venturing in. And we are so pleased we did, the only regret is that it's taken us six years to do so! Located just off the Carretera de Villamartin roundabout near La Zenia's Mcdonalds and the Notary you'll find this gem of a restaurant. With a varied mix of Sushi, rice and noodles, teriyaki dishes, Bangkok style ribs, crispy beef, garlic prawns, to name just a few, they also have more simple items such as chicken balls (nuggets), fried cheese, mushrooms - which are very tasty and potato wedges. Even though Restaurante Jardin is an all you can eat buffet it is sit down table service, with a menu and your food is made to order. For €11.95 per person (€6.95 for children) we found it extremely good value for money. We had such a mix and didn't really have anything in any particular order. The dishes aren't huge, but still a decent size and I actually like them being
