Eye Test, Heatwave and Full Moon

Happy Friday!

I hope you’re having great week so far! Mine’s gone way too quickly. Monday in a blur became Friday. There’s been a mini heatwave, an eye test, realising it’s been 12 years since I left the UK and my obliques sore from kettlebell windmills. I hadn’t done them in a while and if you think you don’t use your obliques running, think again. It took about 3 minutes into my run to make the connection. 

Anyways, I’ll leave you with a little catch up!

Friday saw a run, checking out Huda Beauty that had just landed in Sephora and a long overdue trip to the Opticians. (more…)

Things I Learnt In June

If I had gone sideways rather than forwards along the 2nd monkey bars during in the Maori Race I think I could have done them without any help. I practice going forwards and sideways on the beach monkey bars and have a wider stronger grip and overall strength if I go sideways. Plus the Maori Race monkey bars were further apart than what I’m used to, so to sideways would have meant a wider swing/base to attack them as I skip a bar sideways on the beach. For some reason it only occurred to me in the race to approach them forwards.

If you get up early enough, you’re rewarded with amazing sunrises. 

Tarte Cosmetics now ship directly to Spain! Woo hoo! (more…)

No Hay Rebajas Aqui And Catch Up

Happy Thursday!

While Spain’s great for somethings, sunshine, olive oil, tapas, big sale discounts is one thing I discovered it’s not. I’ve mentioned before sale discounts aren’t much here. Normally 20-30% which isn’t to be sniffed at, but the big discounts of 40-60% are normally reserved for the non Spanish retailers or it’s only department store El Corte Ingles. As most European high street shops are owned by Spanish Inditex, big discounts only occur towards the end of August on stock nobody really wants. I’m beginning to think this year the sales have been and gone without me noticing.

Even non Spanish stores I’ve noticed this summer have fewer discounts, fewer sale signs in windows. Maybe the big discounts are all on online. I haven’t really looked online as the shops are just down the road, (more…)

Netflix, Glow, Wonder Woman and The Zoo

This past weekend was a welcome catch up rest break from all the action packed weekends of late. Catching up on chores which didn’t seem to happen as I caught up on Man x Man the first K-drama to be broadcast internationally an hour after screening in Korea on Netflix. In 20 languages! 

The series finished 2 weeks ago and while I’ve got 2 more episodes to go, unlike most of Netflix’s shows that you binge at once, with this show you had to wait like in Korea! I also started watching GLOW: Glamour Ladies Of Wrestling, (more…)
