The 'Heather' Detox

I'm back from spending a couple of days in the U.K and even though it was a very 
productive trip, I am feeling tired, washed out, 
podgy and bloated beyond belief!

At the mo, some friends are doing/embarking on a special cleanse program and to 
be honest, I'm jealous.

Super jealous. 

I wanna do one, haha. 

I'm gonna see how they get on and purchase a kit for myself if their results are good!

But, on the flight back to Spain it got me thinking.

I can still do a cleanse and be healthy, even if I'm not following a proper formatted one.

I've thought about the elements of different diets I've done and the basis of said cleanse 
program and kinda mixed it all up together.

For three days I am going to cut out caffeine completely, drink at
least 1.5litres of water a day,
drink my aloe gel, matcha and pu-erh teas. 
Cut out the carbs, eat salad, eggs and smoked salmon. 
And make a big batch of detox soup. 

I'm initially doing three days, as I want to stick to it and see results. 
If I'm enjoying it and finding it's not bothering me, 
I will keep it going for longer.

Along with eating right,
 I'm going to have a 60 min walk each day too.

It's too late in the day for me to weigh myself, 
but I will do that first thing in the morning and 
add it on to this post! 
So make sure you check back!

I'm really hoping that after the three days my bloating would of 
gone down and I'll start to have a bit more of a glow 
in my face or at least some colour anyway!

I will be reporting back on Tuesday guys, so keep an eye on the blog.

Wish me luck and why not join in with me too!

Please, please, please, share any tips and super-foods you love to have 
when embarking on a healthier you!

Sunday 10th a.m - Back with my weight as promised
(68.4kg, 10st 11lb)

My goal overall is to be 140lbs (63.5kg, 10st)


  1. I will join you...:)

    1. Fantastic! Look forward to hear how you get on! Be sure to let me know! : )

  2. I keep saying I'm gonna do this (have succeeded before) but you're head has to be in the right place doesn't it and in the right mindset. Chia seeds, fab superfood are great to add to porridge, smoothies and puddings.

    1. Definitely! I thought I'd do three days initially, I mean it's not a proper detox just eating a bit more sensibly and I'm hoping it'll continue! I've never had chia seeds before, will look out for them.

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

This isn't just a one off trip either. It is for, well, the foreseeable future, for as long as they'll have us anyway.  If you follow my social media,  Instagram  and  Twitter  you've probably picked up on the fact that we have relocated to Riyadh in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The gist of the reason is that my husband was offered a fantastic position out there and to be honest after trying out semi-retirement and with the whole pandemic thing where we've (all) been extremely restricted we were itching for another adventure. We also never realised how much we missed the Middle East.  Previously we had five years out in the UAE, living in Abu D
