Spanish delights - La Zenia

Mark and I try to get over to Spain as often as we can, even if it's just for a short weekend. We both have this untold love affair with Spain and always feel so happy and relaxed when we're there.

Even with building work going on at our actual house and houses being built up around us, we still feel so relaxed and happy when we're there.

It really is a whole different vibe, and we love it.

Arriving late on the Friday which always means a mammoth lay-in on Saturday. We always feel guilty though for sleeping in past midday! Even though it is completely in our rights to do so, as it is a day off and we never get to sleep before 3am the night before, as the flight gets in late, then we have to sort the car hire, drive to the house, etc etc... We still feel like we're 'missing out' of precious Spain time, so we always push ourselves to get up!

So on Saturday before we started our 'jobs' we thought we'd head down to our usual beach cafe for a coffee and a croissant. If you follow me on social media I'm sure you would of seen said cafe once or twice before!

Parking was insane. It was gone one o'clock and the beach, along with the parking spaces were filling up, so we were forced to park further up then we usually would.

I'm so glad it did.

We came across this little cafe, with the most stunning view overlooking the beach.

So we changed the plan and headed in for a diet coke and a ham, cheese and onion pizza - which was Perfecto!

I love how in the Summer in Spain all these cute beach cafes pop up all over the place! 

Just feels like a 'holiday' every single time!

Hope you all had a fab weekend too!

♥ Heather

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

Moringa Oil - review

For a while now I've become increasingly interested in my skin and skincare products. I am now well into my thirties and becoming aware that my skin is changing . Something the 20 year old me never thought would happen. Maybe I thought I'd be blessed with clear skin for, forever. But dear Heather that is just not the case! Literally five years ago, since my 30th a random red blemish appeared on the end of my nose and has happily sat there since! Some days it would seem more prominent then others, but it was there to stay, so I thought. Recently, the week leading up to my 35th a friend of said blemish started to appear! A smaller lighter version. Flippin' hell I'm being invaded! Was this my future! The end of my nose filled with weird under the skin red blemishes?? I had already spied one random one on each side of my jawline!  Where ever next!? Enough. Enough is enough and action was needed. I'm not letting my future skin be plagued with these weird

Getting motivated to exercise

Getting motivated to exercise for me is probably one of the hardest things. I don't know why, as in my head I'd love to be one of these fitness girls you see all over Instagram all happy, bouncy and always raring to go. I always feel good after I've exercised so I really don't know why it takes me ages to get myself motivated. I'm 39 now and I know I need to lose weight. I'm not drastically overweight it's more of a personal thing. The usual story that my clothes are getting snugger, I'm out of breath a lot quicker after just doing the simplest tasks and I'm snoring a lot more at night, which my doctor did say could be because I've put on a few extra pounds. Over the last 9 years I've actually put on 20 lbs! That's crazy isn't it. The weight has literally been sneaking up on me and the fat has gradually been moving in a pound at a time. Crafty little thing really.  It has got to the stage where enough is enough and I need, probably fo
