A new morning routine

So it's been about a month now since I received my Matcha Tea from DreamMatcha - 
you can see the post here in-case you missed it!

I used to have at least three cups of Tetley in the mornning and would 
get in a right little mood if there was only time for one! 
Quite tragic I know!

But now, Matcha Tea is my first cup of tea in the morning and I am loving it!

I'm really not missing the Tetley at all!

But there's a new baby in town!

Aloe Vera Drinking Gel.

It's been two days.
Two shots. 
And I am, obsessed!

(did you see my review on the Forever products a couple of weeks ago? see it here)

Anyway, my friend Jenna very kindly gifted me the Aloe Vera Drinking Gel, 
as a thank you for the post I wrote : ) 

Aloe Vera Drinking Gel has amazing reviews and the health benefits are insane!
  I'm not gonna go into it too much right now, 
as I want to do a separate review after drinking it for a few weeks!

Now, as it has only been two days I can't really judge it just yet,
 but I can tell you the taste is absolutely fine, 
it is said to be an acquired taste, but it didn't bother me at all. 
There is a berry flavour too though! 

So, while the kettle is boiling for my Matcha tea I very casually take a shot of 
my Aloe Vera Drinking Gel 
and I tell you what, 
these two combined, 
completely set me up for the day!

I'm actually getting excited for the morning so I can drink my next shot!

I'm really chuffed with my 'new' healthier morning routine. 

It really doesn't take long at all to get in the habit and 
before long you automatically reach for these items
and it becomes second nature.

By introducing these small changes into your daily routine, 
will in time, have amazing benefits to your health. 

And who doesn't wanna be healthy right!?

Have a great weekend guys!

    1. You should it's the best! Clip the link to Jenna's fb page and you can order yourself some! Let me know if you do xx

  2. Hmm.......sorry to sound negative here wish I could stomach this gel I really do as I know it has huge health benefits. I have a full bottle of the normal gel and it certainly is an acquired taste. I've tried mixing it with juice and I still struggle. maybe the berry is better?

    1. Oh Hun! Sorry to hear that! You should try the berry... My mums just ordered some so I'll let you know what it's like. It is something to get used too, it really doesn't bother me, I just 'knock' it back! I must have cast iron stomach and taste buds or something haha!! xxx

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.

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

Looking for compounds in Riyadh

When Mark was first offered the job in Saudi, actually even before that when we were waiting in anticipation for the job to be offered we knew our first choice of accommodation in Riyadh would be on a western compound. We wanted our new place to be a home from home. Even though we have no problem whatsoever with following dress codes or anything and it actually doesn’t bother us in the slightest covering up. We sometimes, because of the world we’re from, being a westerner we wanted that little bit of ‘normality’ from our home life that we’re used too. We like to go on walks in the evening so it’s nice to be able to just pop on your shorts and vest and go for a walk without thinking and also being able to pop to the mini market for a pint of milk and a loaf of bread. Probably one of the biggest reasons for us to live on a compound is that we like to swim, sunbathe and be at the pool together. Which for us is a big part of our life. Another thing we like about compound living is the esca
