Discovering Quiz

sponsored post, but as always, all thoughts are my very own, pictures taken from Quiz's website 


Hola chicas!

It's been a few days since I was last here, OK over a week but details details...

My intention was to start bringing you guys a little bit more consistency on Suncream and Sparkles and posting 2-3 times a week for you. 

But you know, life happened. A trip to the UK, diy in the cellar, I've started painting the lounge and just general everyday stuff has been keeping me away from my blog.

Please forgive me!

So when the lovely people doing some PR for Quiz asked me to do a little post I thought this is the perfect one to jump back into the blog with.

Like me I'm sure you've heard of Quiz before. I've always been aware of the brand and when I Christmas temped at Debenhams a couple of years back, the Quiz concession was on my floor. Unfortunately though, in the three months I was there I literally never had time to peruse for myself though. If you've ever worked in retail at Christmas you'll fully understand I'm sure! Manic crazy busy not having time to breath doesn't even come close.

I did however used to eye the party dresses as I'd see them going into the changing room and would have a quick swoon when putting them back on the hangers after they'd been tried on. 

I always thought that Quiz was pretty much just a party dress label. How wrong was I!

Since having a surf around their website I'm delighted to find out they ship here to Spain (free shipping if you spend €25 may I add) and that they are so much more then just your average party dress brand. I am too excited about my new find. 

They of course have some absolutely gorgeous dresses that would be perfect for a special event like a wedding, a day at the races or a fancy garden party. Have a peek here

Now I just need a special occasion to go to as I am desperate to snap up one of their beautiful dresses. 
Does the Tuesday afternoon grocery shop in Mercadona count?

Everything is so purse friendly and there's certainly an outfit for every occasion, 
not just for a Saturday night at the club.

Along with the beautiful dresses they have some awesome tops too, which I can definitely see myself wearing whilst having some tapas and vino coffee at the beach and browsing the shops at Zenia Boulevard.

Have you shopped at Quiz before? 

Would love to know your thoughts and what you treated yourself too!

Read more on my  Disclaimer/Contact  page ~ Since writing the post ' Blogging tips ~ Basic/Beginners'   I keep thinking about the part about choosing a name for your blog. 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

My Spanish Vida goes to Riyadh KSA

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
