Vacay Diary - Spain in April



As some of you are probably aware and the reason I've been a little absent from my blog, is that a couple of weeks ago we had a weeks vacation at our home in Spain. As always, we had a lovely time and absolutely loved being there, but we were so blimin' busy!

Back in January we shipped some of our furniture from Dubai to Spain. After nearly 15 weeks it finally arrived at our Spanish home! It was soo nice being re-united with it all and the house is really starting to take shape now. It's getting harder and harder to leave each time!

Along with our existing furniture arriving, we also ordered a couple of new pieces from a gorgeous furniture shop not far from the Spanish house. What we weren't prepared for though, that it arrived flat packed!! You could imagine our faces, as we thought with it being solid wood furniture (and not Ikea for example) it would already be assembled!! So that was our afternoon set out, instructions and a screwdriver! After a few hours they were assembled and in place, looking very stylish and sophisticated, if I do say so myself!

As usual I planned to get loads of ootd shots and pictures of the stunning scenery to show you all, but the time seriously just slipped away! I did manage however, to get a few selfies in and get hubby to take some pics here and there!











We did have such a fab time. Lot's of running around getting jobs done in the house and garden, checking out the supermarkets (seriously, we were averaging two a day! It's turning into our favourite past-time!!). During the week we did manage to get a few hours in chilling up on the roof, topping up the tan! As you can probably tell at how tired I'm looking in the snaps, we now need another vacation to recover from this one!!

Each time we go, more and more is getting sorted, so hopefully the next trip out to Spain will be a bit more relaxed and holiday orientated? Here's hoping 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

Moringa Oil - review

For a while now I've become increasingly interested in my skin and skincare products. I am now well into my thirties and becoming aware that my skin is changing . Something the 20 year old me never thought would happen. Maybe I thought I'd be blessed with clear skin for, forever. But dear Heather that is just not the case! Literally five years ago, since my 30th a random red blemish appeared on the end of my nose and has happily sat there since! Some days it would seem more prominent then others, but it was there to stay, so I thought. Recently, the week leading up to my 35th a friend of said blemish started to appear! A smaller lighter version. Flippin' hell I'm being invaded! Was this my future! The end of my nose filled with weird under the skin red blemishes?? I had already spied one random one on each side of my jawline!  Where ever next!? Enough. Enough is enough and action was needed. I'm not letting my future skin be plagued with these weird

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
