La Mirada La Zenia Beach

You've probably heard me talk about La Mirada before or seen some pictures shared on my Instagram page as La Mirada is still one of our go-to places for coffee/breakfast/lunch and even dinner too.

For the last 6 or 7 years ever since we first bought our house on the Costa Blanca South and even now when we've moved a little bit further up to Pilar de la Horadada, La Mirada at La Zenia beach is somewhere we still love to visit regularly. 

Name & locationRestaurante La Mirada, Paseo del Mar 2, Urb. La Zenia 03189 
                                         (situated next door to Hotel Servigroup La Zenia)

To Eat ~ We love Tapas. Such a huge variety. Magra con tomate is my favourite and Mark loves the      Calamari alla romana. The meatballs and garlic prawns are very tasty and their patatas fritas (chips) are really good as well. I can also recommend the Chicken caeser salad and the pizzas. We are also partial to stopping by for a breakfast croissant, usually ham & cheese and a café con leche too.

What we like ~ The location is fabulous. Right on the beach with beautiful sea views from pretty much every where you sit. There is a huge terrace which at the moment with Covid that's a major plus that we can be nicely spaced out. The food has always been consistently good. We also find La Mirada good value for money and the service is very good too. Our waitress Ana always remembers us and gives us a friendly welcome.

Today we had & cost ~ 2 x coca cola lights, pan and alioli, calamari alla romana, magra con tomate and patatas fritas. €26.35. 

La Mirada also has a large pool which is the perfect place to relax during the Summer. You can read my post about it here.

Getting motivated to exercise

Getting motivated to exercise for me is probably one of the hardest things. I don't know why, as in my head I'd love to be one of these fitness girls you see all over Instagram all happy, bouncy and always raring to go. I always feel good after I've exercised so I really don't know why it takes me ages to get myself motivated. I'm 39 now and I know I need to lose weight. I'm not drastically overweight it's more of a personal thing. The usual story that my clothes are getting snugger, I'm out of breath a lot quicker after just doing the simplest tasks and I'm snoring a lot more at night, which my doctor did say could be because I've put on a few extra pounds. Over the last 9 years I've actually put on 20 lbs! That's crazy isn't it. The weight has literally been sneaking up on me and the fat has gradually been moving in a pound at a time. Crafty little thing really.  It has got to the stage where enough is enough and I need, probably fo

Choosing a name for your blog

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. If you're debating on what name to choose for your

Restaurante Jardin, La Zenia, Spain

Last week after passing Restaurante Jardin for the last six years we actually got round to venturing in. And we are so pleased we did, the only regret is that it's taken us six years to do so! Located just off the Carretera de Villamartin roundabout near La Zenia's Mcdonalds and the Notary you'll find this gem of a restaurant. With a varied mix of Sushi, rice and noodles, teriyaki dishes, Bangkok style ribs, crispy beef, garlic prawns, to name just a few, they also have more simple items such as chicken balls (nuggets), fried cheese, mushrooms - which are very tasty and potato wedges. Even though Restaurante Jardin is an all you can eat buffet it is sit down table service, with a menu and your food is made to order. For €11.95 per person (€6.95 for children) we found it extremely good value for money. We had such a mix and didn't really have anything in any particular order. The dishes aren't huge, but still a decent size and I actually like them being
