More snow in France

This morning we woke up to the perfect snowy garden. Crisp, fresh snow which was made even more beautiful with the bright sunshine beaming down through the blue winter skies. If you saw my last post about the snow   here   (yep I'm British and love talking about the weather! lol!) You'd notice that a lot more has laid today then we had before and with the sunshine it makes it look so much prettier. Even though I am full of this horrible cold that seems to be doing the rounds, I did venture outside to take some more pictures of the garden in the snow. If you follow my  Insta   you would of seen my latest #selfie which is not the most flattering granted, but I am liking how my cold has somehow made my lips look all plumped up!  Not much more from me today, so I will leave you with some pretty snow pictures. How's the snow in your neck of the woods?  Are you loving all the wintery scenery we're having?  Heather ♥

Alicante Airport → Torrevieja Bus Timetable

~ Disclaimer - information correct at the time of publishing this post ~ When we first moved back to Spain a couple of years ago, while Mark was commuting to the UK I would rely on public transport to get me around, especially for getting to and from the airport, for when I'd fly over to visit Mark during the week. At first I did find it hard to track down information for bus timetables etc for our little Orihuela Costa, but I did find a handy website called The website contains all the information for the bus from Torrevieja to Alicante airport and back, so do check with  for up to date bus times. If like me when I find information like this I want it laid out in the most easiest, simplest, not have to think about it at all in anyway, kind of format. So, below I have grabbed the information from and laid it out hopefully in an easy way to read and something you can always screen shot and save fo

Snowing in France

~ this post contains affiliate links, see my  Disclaimer/Contact  page for more details ~ It's snowing! If you watched my insta stories earlier you would of seen I ventured out in the snow to take a few pics around the garden. Even though it is quite chilly and our pipes have frozen to the upstairs shower! It's still really pretty seeing the pure white snow covering the lawn, shrubs and trees. I love when the snow is super fresh, where no-ones walked or driven over it yet. My new coat from  Desigual   which we won't talk about the fact I bought it in the sale with 10% discount and it's now got 50% OFF! Cheers to the snow! Are you a fan of the snow? Or do you just like to look at it? Or is it wayyyyy too cold!? Is it snowing where you are? Heather ♥ follow for more with Facebook  •  Instagram  •  Twitter

Relaxing at Cabo Roig Marina

When we were last over in Spain at the house, we headed down to one of our favourite spots on the Costa Blanca South. It's always somewhere we love to take friends and family as well. Cabo Roig Marina is tucked away behind the busy N332. Once you turn off the main road you drive through the palm tree lined streets passing some absolutely gorgeous houses, which are definitely on the 'when we win the lottery' list!  I love the drive to Cabo Roig Marina. The streets are quiet and calm. The palm trees give you a real tropical holiday kinda vibe. Then when you take the turning to the marina down a steep hill the view is amazing. It's quite a small marina, but a lovely display of boats and a couple of restaurants too. The first restaurant is The Clipper, which we've been too a few times now (it was closed on that particular day though, I'm guessing as it's the low season).  Then further round the marina there's a much larger r

Laura Hamilton - A Place in the Sun

Summer of 2017 I was very lucky to have Laura Hamilton feature on my Wordpress version of My Spanish Vida. I loved this interview post so much that I had to transfer the post over here too * * * * * * * * We best know Laura Hamilton from our favourite property program 'A place in the Sun'. We watch Laura showing prospective buyers properties abroad in exciting destinations and tempting us to also find our very own Place in the Sun. Along with wowing us with properties on the television both home and away Laura is not only a Mum to two gorgeous little ones, but also a wife, business owner - most recently taking over as Postmistress at Lord Roberts on the Green, writer for HELLO! magazine and taking part in shows like the Jump and Dancing on Ice, plus many more exciting projects she's involved with. Laura definitely is an all round girlboss and total inspiration. I'm a big fan of Laura's and her work ethic, energy and zest for life. You can im
