Sun's out and wearing my aviator sunglasses from

~ I was sent these sunglasses in exchange for an honest review on my blog ~

This year so far the weather seems to have been extremely unseasonable everywhere!

The summer here in Spain is taking it's time to get going, so at the moment whenever there's a glimpse of warm sunshine we're getting ourselves outside and trying to work on that tan and to soak up some much needed vitamin D.

A little while ago the lovely people over at asked if I wanted to review some more of their sunglasses. The ones I've tried before I really liked, so I was eager to browse through the blogger selection to see what I could choose.

This time I went for an Aviator style.

I haven't worn Aviators for ages now! I loved them at one point and then I moved on to the big bug style ones - you know the ones!

Which incidentally I do still love, but I really fancied trying the Aviator sunglasses again.

Even though it hasn't been blazing sunshine in Spain just yet it has still been 'bright' out, so definitely sunglasses weather. Which is great because I've been able to give my new sunnies a good trial.

I'm sure as you can imagine they haven't disappointed. 

I think Aviators are always a sure thing. They suit every face shape, any age, male or female. They really are the go-to, all rounder, cool shades. *insert smiling faced sunglasses emoji*

I love that they have a thin arm, which is great for sunbathing and for when you're just generally out and about as you won't get those thick white lines on your face. Also again, they literally are a classic style which finishes off any outfit casual or smart perfectly.

Yesterday Mark and I went for a walk along the beach at Campoamor and found ourselves walking through the Marina and ended up stopping for a couple of tapas dishes and a diet coke. 

Totally spur of the moment as you can tell from my outfit! But I think when you've got the right sunglasses on you can feel completely confident, without a care in the world.

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

Looking for compounds in Riyadh

When Mark was first offered the job in Saudi, actually even before that when we were waiting in anticipation for the job to be offered we knew our first choice of accommodation in Riyadh would be on a western compound. We wanted our new place to be a home from home. Even though we have no problem whatsoever with following dress codes or anything and it actually doesn’t bother us in the slightest covering up. We sometimes, because of the world we’re from, being a westerner we wanted that little bit of ‘normality’ from our home life that we’re used too. We like to go on walks in the evening so it’s nice to be able to just pop on your shorts and vest and go for a walk without thinking and also being able to pop to the mini market for a pint of milk and a loaf of bread. Probably one of the biggest reasons for us to live on a compound is that we like to swim, sunbathe and be at the pool together. Which for us is a big part of our life. Another thing we like about compound living is the esca
