Happy New Year!
Sunset 1st Jan 2019
I hope you had an amazing time celebrating the New Year whether you were sleeping, partying or like me celebrating New Year’s Day soaking up the sun at the beach!
Like Christmas, ringing in the New Year was low key. Thanks to TVE1 en directo on my phone, the cats and I rang in the New Year watching the ball drop in Puerta de Sol Madrid snugged up warm. I just just managed to eat all 12 grapes in before the 12 campanadas finished. Just. Does having 1 or 2 left mid chew as you try to avoid choking on grape juice count?
I’m more New Year’s day than New Year’s Eve. I like to see the sunrise rise Continue reading “Intentions 2019”
After a long hiatus Weekend Friday Favourites is back!
How’s your weekend going? I’ve had some many Weekend Friday Favourites planned over the past 2 months. Planned in my head that never materialised, photos taken never shown. Maybe it’s been lack of motivation or time scheduling with the beach calling. I think it’s more my time management abilities and prioritising the beach. Summer’s only here a little while. Anyways this week’s Weekend Friday Favourites, things that caught my eye or made me smile recently. Continue reading “Weekend Friday Favourites”
I mentioned that I’m getting back more into reading books, putting down my phone and iPad, switching NetFlix and YouTube for paper. I thought it would be fun to share with you my summer reading list!
One I’ve already finished, two I’m half way though switching out depending on my mood. I should also mention I’m probably an author’s worst nightmare. Like I do with K Dramas or any TV show I’m into I read ahead on recaps. I do this with books too. It doesn’t matter if it’s books I’m Continue reading “Summer Reads 2018”
April’s and May’s 2017 covers of US Instyle magazine made me happy. April’s featured Victoria Beckham and with May, Amy Schumer. 2 ladies with 2 totally different body shapes and age. Victoria Beckham gives us thinner lipped girls hope in a social media world of plump lips and lip injections. Amy Schumer proves you don’t have to be a haute corture runway supermodel to be on a cover of an international fashion magazine. Confidence and beauty at 20, 40 and 30
For as long as I can remember I’ve been an US Instyle magazine reader. I don’t think I’ve missed an issue since 2003. I was so happy when I found my then local kiosk sold it in Spain when I moved here. Continue reading “Why I like Instyle Magazine”
I’m getting excited. Spring’s saying hello! I can feel it’s buzz in the mornings, it’s warmth, the light’s changing from it’s soft winter glow. Late Winter, early Spring’s coming a close second to my love of Summer. In about 2 weeks I’ll be switching out my winter coat. It’s warm enough early afternoon to have a lighter jacket but the mornings and evenings say different. I’m hoping that saying if March comes in like a lion it goes out like a lamb and vice versa the lion’s roar’s worse that its bite. The next few weeks look sunny and windy and I’ve got my fingers crossed the wind’s the lion.
Now the days are getting longer myself and what Continue reading “I See You Spring”
