Get ready to host guests again with a pop-up canopy

~ 'Get ready to host guests again with a pop-up canopy' is a collaborative post which you can read more about my collaborations in my disclaimer here. I was keen to share this post with you all because as you know we have many garden projects planned ourselves and one of them is to have our own pergola. There's some great tips and ideas in the post about being able to spruce up our outside space with pop-up canopies to get ourselves ready for when we can socialize with friends and family again ~

A pop-up canopy is a product that can provide any homeowner with a wealth of benefits. From aesthetic appeal to practical use; pop up canopies tick all of the boxes. It is very unlikely that we will ever see the day whereby this product falls out of favour. If you currently do not own a pop-up canopy, read on to discover the reasons why this is a purchase you should definitely consider making…


There is only one place to begin when it comes to pop up gazebos and this is the fact that you can use them for a wealth of different purposes. Most people tend to use their canopies in the garden during the sunshine. Not only do they offer great shade but they are extremely beneficial when it comes to outdoor parties and alike. Then there are those who purchase a pop-up canopy with the primary purpose of using it at events. This includes everything from markets, to trade shows, to sports events. 

Value for Money

This is something that directly links to the point that has just been mentioned. Because a pop-up canopy is a product that offers you a variety of uses you can rest assured that you are getting your money’s worth. This is extremely important in the current day whereby it seems many products are grossly overpriced. If you search around on the internet you are bound to find some really great deals. 

Aesthetic Appeal

One of the main benefits associated with pop up canopies is the fact that they add aesthetic appeal to any outside space. If you take a look on the internet you will see that there are hundred different designs available for pop up gazebos nowadays and therefore you are bound to find something that fits in with your taste and the exterior style of your home. If you are planning on making use of the product at events – such as trade shows and markets – you could consider matching the gazebo in with your brand or the type of products you are selling. If you’re purchasing a pop-up canopy for your home and for summer BBQs, why not create a stunning patio area? Use a local concrete supplier and you can get started on your own exciting DIY project while at home over the coming weeks or months. The options are well and truly endless. Plus, it is worth noting the fact that a gazebo is a grand structure in itself and therefore its very presence can truly transform an outside area. 

Protection from Outdoor Elements

The next advantage associated with pop up canopies is that they provide protection from outdoor elements. This encompasses everything from the rain, to insects, to the sunshine, to the wind, to bird’s doing their business! You can ensure that whatever is underneath the canopy is protected. This proves to be beneficial on so many different levels. From individuals looking for shade from the sun, for food being put out at parties, to crafts being displayed at a market stall; the protection provided by a pop-up canopy is definitely needed.

When you take these four points into account it is really not difficult to see why pop up canopies are extremely popular with so many different individuals in the current day and age.

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

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

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&
