Water water everywhere

So, when I used to fly (yep, I did work once lol!) I used to get told all the time 'you've got lovely skin' and asked 'what's your secret?'.

OK, that's a bit of an exaggeration, I got asked this once haha, but it could of been more, it could of been!!! Anyway, I'm sure this was at the very beginning of my flying career, where I was young, fresh faced and bushied tailed!

It wasn't though until I started flying, that I realised how important water is for you and how as humans, we can get crazy dehydrated all the time.

When I was flying the skies I drank shed loads of water. Seriously, I drank so much and I'd still feel ridiculously dehydrated after a flight. Those days are over and even though I'm not stuck in a metal tube for ten hours plus at a time, I still make sure I drink at least 1.5 litres each and every day.

The benefits of water are amazing. Going back to the lady on the flight, my answer was 'I drink loads of water'. Which was true, as I've never really used anything special on my skin or had a regular beauty routine. I mean you can have all the fancy lotions and potions in the world, but good old fashioned water is the best thing for your complexion. Drinking water flushes out all the toxins in your body and again keeps you hydrated which is so important. It's not just about keeping hydrated living in the heat or summer time, wherever you are in the world, whatever the temperature, it's so important and good for you to drink water all the time.

If you think to yourself 'I'm never going to be able to drink all that in one day'.Well you can, it's easy! We always fill up a 1.5 litre bottle and drink from that, as it's so much easier to keep track of your water intake. If you're a fan of fizzy drinks, first of all please, please, please switch to the diet variety and then try to swap it for water. After a few weeks you will feel tons better!

When drinking alcohol, which I do, I'm no saint! But I always try to alternate the alcoholic drink with a glass of water. If you're out having a meal, order a bottle of water along with your vino (you'll be thankful you did in the morning!). It's so easy to include water into having a tipple!

A good tip is also to take a small bottle of water in the car with you. I always make sure I have a bottle in my handbag for when I'm out and about at the shops. Trust me, it's very handy when you're in the changing room trying on clothes and start working up a sweat!

Another great tip is, if you're feeling 'hungry' have a glass of water and wait a little while before you make a beeline for the fridge. Most of the time you're just thirsty and not actually hungry! Drinking lot's of water is great if you're trying to shed a few lbs too.

So, I found this picture on the internet with a few things about what water does for you - take a look, it's quite interesting!

Do you drink loads of water? What's your tips for keeping hydrated and making sure you drink enough each day? Love to know your thoughts!

Blogging tips ~ Basic/Beginner

~ Disclaimer - this post is just a light hearted look at the very basic blogging tips. I do not have high DA or high stats, but I thought some of the things I have picked up over years may be helpful. Even if just one person takes one thing I've shared as useful info, then this post is worthwhile. This post also contains affiliate links ~ I'm laughing at myself a little bit writing this post as I want to be very clear that I'm not an award winning blogger, I don't have a high da score and I don't really have many page views at the moment. You're probably wondering to yourself why am I even writing this post if I'm not a far flung award winning blogger? Well, this is it. I call myself a blogger, because well I have a blog and I document stuff. I've had my blog for over eight years now and even though I haven't had a breakthrough (yet) I have picked up a couple of things along the way. I have also been asked before by friends about starting a blog, so

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

How to do your cars ITV/MOT in Spain

  ~ Disclaimer - this post is not associated with any ITV centres in Spain or anything that they maybe connected with them. I am also not a car mechanic of any sorts and I would always advise to seek professional advice. This post is simply sharing my experience of an ITV ~ It's that time when Marks car is due it's ITV, which is similar to the UK's MOT. In Spain your car has it's first ITV check when it's 4 years old. Then every 2 years up until the car is 10, then it's checked every year. When living in another country and not really knowing the lingo, these type of things can seem a little daunting at times and it may feel easier to just throw money at things to get someone to do it for you.  Which I think happens a lot when it comes to getting your cars ITV. A lot of garages offer a service where they will do a pre-itv check and then take your car to the test centre and do it for you. Sounds great doesn't it. Which it is don't get me wrong at all, it&
