Pure Chimp Super Tea!

my spanish vida blog matcha tea

~ I was kindly gifted this tea in exchange of an honest review ~

 As you guys know I love, love, love my herbal teas. I mean I do still love a cup of Tetley, who doesn't?! 
And I always have to have a cup in the morning, it used to be three before I could even function lol, but 
I've retrained myself that one is more than sufficient, then it's time to move onto the herbal-licious blends!

So when Pure Chimps were looking for bloggers to review their Matcha Green Tea, 
my hand was straight up to volunteer and they kindly sent me over this sachet to try.

How cute is this packaging?! 
So excited and eager to try this blend out!

Now I'm sure you guys have heard of Matcha Green Teas before, as there are many different brands selling 
this on the market and in tea bag form too - which is handy for on the go - but why the loose powder and 
whats all the fuss about Matcha Green Tea anyway? What is so special about Matcha?

Pure Chimp have some lovely recipes over on their website here of different ways to enjoy their Matcha Green 
Tea. I think some people find it quite bitter and hard to drink, so making it into lattes and cakes is a fab way to 
make sure you're getting your daily Matcha intake!

Me though. I do like to think I'm a hardcore Matcha tea drinker! I have it full on straight in hot water!
Literally, I have a nice heaped teaspoon mixed with boiling water. I was so gutted that my mini electric whisk 
is still in Spain, so I couldn't give it a good whizz up! But, a good stir is good enough for me!

I really found Pure Chimp's Matcha Green Tea nice and smooth and so easy to drink. 
I really am pro Matcha and think Pure Chimp's have an awesome blend! 
Check out their cute mini whisk too here! I want one immediately!

Love to know how you drink your Matcha!

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&
