How are you? Really hope you are well and had a good couple of weeks. Apologies for not blogging for a couple of weeks, things have been hectic and busy as always and I was also away for 8 days and this time I tried to limit my time on the computer!!
So, this blog I am focusing on my holiday, oh what joy!! I was lucky enough to go to Gran Canaria for a week and stay at the Sheraton Salobre hotel. The hotel was in the mountains and a 15 minute shuttle bus journey to the beach, and I must admit it was lovely to stay somewhere quieter, felt like a really peaceful haven. Here is a little video of the beautiful sunrise:
The hotel was great; good food, friendly staff and lots of different areas to swim and sunbathe in, just wish I had spent 2 weeks there instead of 1!!
Other than that it was such a week of chilling out, walking, going for dinner, sometimes in hotel and sometimes by the beach, and just generally soaking up the sunshine of which there was a fair amount. We met some great people too and had some real laughs, especially with a lady called Annette who was such a joy to be with and it turns out she was friends with Amica and Goody, the QVC models!! Small world isn't it?!
I also got to try out an upcoming TSV from Heys luggage, as you can see in the photos it looked stylish and was the perfect size for a week away, and it was such a doddle to wheel around airport and the hotel. I was a bit like a Hey commercial because I also had the little Heys messenger bag that I took on the plane that had my Euros, passport and tickets etc in it, and of course the all important digital luggage scales ensuring no excess baggage charges!!
I also prepped my skin using Decleor Arromessence Solaire before I went and used it whilst I was there as well as protecting my skin with Ultrasun 30 and, I have to say my skin feels so healthy and glowing. A perfect break to the winter sun!!
Since coming back I have been part of really busy days at QVC including the Acer tablet and Kelly Hoppen TSVs. Just last night I was trying out the upcoming KitchenAid TSV for this weekend (31st March) and, using the 'Great British Bake-off' book, made a chocolate & hazelnut cake to enjoy with my family and friends over the weekend, you can see it in the photo and believe me, it's delicious!!
So, as always, it's time for my 3 THINGS:
HIGHLIGHT OF THE WEEK: this has to be lying in the sun on the beautiful Balinese bed on the terrace of the Sheraton hotel, so calm and beautifully warm. We spent 2 mornings there just gazing up at the blue sky and feeling all was right with the world. Aahhhhh….
FAVOURITE PRODUCT OF THE WEEK: I know this is cheating but can I have two this week, please?! Has to be Decleor Aromessence Solaire face serum to protect and prepare skin for tanning AND Ultrasun 30 (face and body) to protect skin whilst developing a lovely tan. (Ooops, just realised as it was 2 Ultrasun products, that's actually 3, am I in trouble?!)
HAPPY THOUGHT OF THE WEEK: I was in a very near miss accident yesterday, 2 seconds earlier and I think it would have been fatal and I am not saying that for dramatic purposes, it is the truth. I thanked my Guardian Angel and it made me realise how precious and fragile life is. Reason this is my happy thought is because it reminded me that actually we do need to live each day as well as we can and appreciate as much as we can.
As always, what's yours??
