My daily Rituals

A couple of weekends ago when Mark and I were in Spain having our usual trip around the Boulevard we came across the shop Rituals. I'm sure it's been there a while, but we've never noticed it before. As I'm becoming more and more obsessed with skincare I had to have a look.

Now Rituals have been around for a little while now, since 2000, so I am sure you guys have heard of them before. Sometimes I swear I've been on a different planet or something and am completely behind the game. Not good for a blogger really? haha..

Anyway, I was really impressed with the store. So unbelievably calming and I immediately felt like I had been transported into a Far Eastern spa. Completely in awe of all the products, really not knowing what to choose, but I was in one of those moods that I wasn't walking out of the shop empty handed! I'm sure the lovely shop assistant picked up on my 'I have to spend now' vibes as Mark kept looking at me slightly smirking and shaking his head like - you are such a marketing mans dream - he always says that to me, haha!

If you follow me on snap you would of noticed I'm slightly obsessed with my ever appearing wrinkles haha on my ageing 34 year old skin. I swear they have appeared over night - I literally have woken up one morning and have a face full of wrinkles! I'm in serious need of some good 'grown-up' face cream!

The shop assistant recommended this Essential Anti-Aging Day Cream. Which also contains SPF15, which ladies, is soooo important and you should always, always use creams with SPF in them!

I've been using this day cream for a couple of weeks now and I love it. I really think my wrinkles have started to fade and my skin feels really really good and I swear my skin looks a little perkier too!

At the checkout my assistant also showed me some different hand creams. The Miracle Scrub caught my eye. She instantly whisked me over to the Balinese style sink and massaged some of the Miracle scrub on my hand and rinsed it away under the warm water. OMG! My hand felt so incredibly soft! Sold! Then I heard a 'come on, no more' whisper under hubby's breath, hehe... OK, I swiftly paid up and left.

The Miracle scrub, really is a miracle! I've only had to use it a couple of times and I haven't used any separate hand creams since. I squeeze a tiny amount, a pea size I guess onto the back of my hand (dry) massage in, then rinse. They seriously stay soft for at least a week and like I said, I haven't been reaching for my regular hand cream every five minutes either! I love this scrub and it really works for me. My hands stay soft, which is amazing for me, as I do suffer from super dry hands. I also swear that the skin on my hands is starting to look less'baggy' too!

Because I hadn't heard of this brand before I had to search them out on the web. I couldn't believe how many stores and outlets there already are around the country! A lot seem to be within a Debenhams or Marks and Spencer, but also stand alone shops too. See if there's one near you here! You can also order online and I've noticed if you spend over £40 you get a free gift of an Eau de Parfum set for him or her. Plus they offer free delivery with the UK and some European countries too. (Correct at the time of publishing this post, please look for current offers on the website).

Reading their 'About Us' I was so impressed and not only am I really into their products, their ethics and outlook is spot on too! I'm not going to re-write their whole section on here lol, but I will let you know that they don't test on animals. The materials they use are natural and not harmful to the environment. Also very interestingly, as it's been in the news recently about what all our lotions and potions contain. Rituals remove harmful substances like parabens, phthalates and MIT and also 100% microbeads free. Now, I'm no scientist and no super clued up beauty guru, but I do know that it's a really, really good thing these are removed, as they are super harmful to the environment. Read all about Rituals for yourself here.

Seriously Rituals have top top marks from me and I can't wait for my next purchase!!

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

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

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&
