Spain vacay

We got back from Spain last weekend after a fabulous (but super quick) week there!

It was so good just to be in our house again and even though we were whizzing around the place tidying up, buying light fittings, a trip to Ikea, hanging pictures, assembling book shelves and a lot of gardening thrown into the mix, we still managed to have a fun holiday.

Marks Mum and her husband came out for a few nights and stayed in a nearby hotel. It was soo good to see them again and also actually having some 'quality' time together. Some lovely meals out and an afternoon chilling on the beach enjoying some tapas and San Miguel!

The beautiful beach at Mil Palmeras and my cheesy grin! I'm loving these aztec hairbands I picked it up in one of the many Chinese shops for about a €1! Absolute bargain. You must excuse my fluffy hair, it was the day before my trip to the hairdressers!

We also of course managed to squeeze in a spot of retail therapy. I must admit I was slightly disappointed as now summers coming to a close the shops are starting to fill up with their Autumn/Winter collections. Even though I love my warmer clothes, boots & knits, they're not really too practical for where I'm living. I did manage to pick up a couple of summer tops in the sale, a yellow tee and a white and pink stripe vest from a cool shop Polinesia. I also picked up some gorgeous gladiator sandals from Tino Gonz├ílez. I bagged three pairs all for €6 each, reduced from €19.99 a pair!

Sitting neatly on my dressing room rug which I told you about in a previous post. For the time being I've left them safely locked away in Spain, as it was pointless bringing them back to the desert as they would just get ruined with all the dust, dirt and sand here. Also, I'm so in love with them so much I want to preserve them for as long as possible, so they can take me into next spring and summer for rocking around Espana in!

  1. The sandals are fab, too perfect for summer!

    I agree, the desert weather is pretty harsh. Most of my sandals and flats can only last for a year.

    1. Thanks Anne! I'm itching to get back to Spain so I can wear them again! Haha : )

Mil Palmeras

Happy Thursday guys, hope you're all well. I'm just popping on here to show you a few pictures I snapped quickly today while we were at Mil Palmeras Beach. We popped to Mercadona this morning, well more lunchtime(ish) as we are sleeping in so much lately, but that's for another day. So, we picked up a few bits for the weekend and grabbed one of their sushi boxes for our lunch on the go. fyi , the best supermarket sushi I've had! After our trip to Mercadona we headed for Leroy Merlin in La Zenia as we needed to get some more bags of sand and some gravel too for our little diy garden project. I say little, but it's turning into quite the construction! Keep an eye on my  insta stories   over the weekend for updates. En-route to Leroy's we stopped off at Mil Palmeras to eat our sushi by the sea. Mil Palmeras has always been one of our favourite places here on the Costa Blanca South. Actually it was one of the first places we went to after the lockdown last year.  To

Spending ban - Ideas to cutting back...

- this post contains affiliate links - You may have noticed a couple of my tweets recently that I am shamefully on a 'Spending Ban'. Now, this is something both Mark and I have come to agreement on, as looking at our recent credit card statements we I, have been a little too fluid with the spends lately. So, we are putting a little 'ban' on for a few weeks! Seriously do not know how I am going to cope!! Haha... Only joking! But it did get me to thinking though about where to cut back on everyday things and where each of us can save here and there. Especially at the moment where there's hardly any interest on savings and things do seem to be getting more and more expensive! So here's a bit of random list! Nothing in any particular order, just little ideas where we can all cut back in our every day lives! ********** * First of all - I know I said no particular order, but this ones a definite first and then it
