Chatting with Steph from Priceless Life Of Mine


I'm very excited today to introduce you guys to my beautiful blogger friend Steph, from Priceless Life of Mine.

Steph and I have formed a firm friendship through blogging and even though we haven't actually met in the flesh (although we are trying to sort this out!), Steph is always there for me when I have my blogger 'meltdowns' offering kind words and support and has really become a real friend and definitely my 'best blogging friend'! bbf!

Steph very kindly answered a few question I threw at her about, her blog and blogging! Check them out below!


Tell me about your blog!

I write a lifestyle blog which encompasses beauty, fashion, travel and quite frankly anything I enjoy and think my readers will enjoy. When I started I knew I didn't want to be restricted to just one topic as hubby and I lead such busy lives there's always something to talk about. I love it too, and it's totally taken over my life!

What made you start blogging?

To be honest I came across a blog whilst browsing the internet one day, found a few more and got really interested. I hadn't read that many when I thought 'I could do that too!' Being a 40plus blogger it seemed there was a bit of a gap (although we're growing in numbers slowly) and I wanted to help fill that gap. I also thought it would be a great way to document our life, sort of an online diary for us and our kids to always be able to look back on.

If you could go back in time to when you first started blogging, what tip would you give yourself?!

Don't stress. That's the biggest tip I'd give myself. I'm sure I nearly gave myself an ulcer with all the stress it caused me. They'll be many frustrations and possibly tears but things sort themselves out one way or another. Google WILL be your best friend for evermore, no doubt about that!

Other then blogging what do you like to do in your spare time?

Chilling with the hubby, commonly known as Mr C on the blog, catching up on TV (we're forever catching up) as we're so busy. We both like to walk and cycle, and spend time with family and friends. 
Oh, I forgot the drinking bit, but everyone does that don't they?!

You always seem to be on the go with events, holidays and 'life' in general. What do you do to relax and 'switch' off?

That's a difficult one because I don't tend to switch off, I find it hard. I have such an active mind and am always on the go. I guess to switch off I'd read a book or magazine but that doesn't happen very often. I struggle to find my off button :)

What advice would you give to someone thinking about starting a blog?

Just do it. It's fun and scary all at the same time but you'll love it. TRY not to compare yourself to others (although that's a really hard one!) and we all do it at times. Just be you. Writing a blog can help build your confidence in many ways and you grow as a person. oh and you make lots of lovely new friends like this lady that's interviewing me right now!

If you could meet any blogger for lunch and a chit chat who would it be?

No hesitation here, Rosie from The Londoner. I love her sense of style, her sense of humour and her posts just draw you in, leaving you wanting to read more and more, now that's a talented blogger, and her photos are off the scale beautiful too! Victoria from In The Frow comes in a very close second.


Aren't Steph's photos gorgeous!

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&
