It's been so long since I updated my blog (well it seems like it anyway!) and even though I am loving, loving, loving my time here in Spain and all our gorgeous visitors, I am feeling a tad guilty that Suncream and Sparkles is getting a little bit neglected!

So, I have peeled myself out of bed and am writing you guys this post, as I need to tell you about this fab company the!

*So, when the lovely people at the asked if I wanted to review a pair of their sunglasses, I of course jumped at the chance!

These little beauties turned up in my P.O Box and I was soo excited to see (no pun intended!) what they're like.

So of course, I partook in the obligatory selfies and promptly took them for a little outing to the marina for pizza and a glass of vino! As you do!

Now, the are not any ordinary sunglasses shop, they also have Prescription Eyeglasses as well as Prescription Sunglasses.

And if you're quick they're also doing an offer for new customers where you get the First pair of Glasses Free! Which basically means your first pair is free (except shipping and handling!).

I am loving my new sunnies, they really do feel great quality and they're cheap glasses too! I have been getting lot's of compliments and these babies won't be leaving my side!

If you fancy getting yourself a pair, the lovely people at the are offering you guys 50% off on eyeglasses and sunglasses with free lenses! (sale frames excluded!)

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&
