Ibiza sunshine with the Samsung Galaxy S8+



I’m back and ready for action! Hope you are well and I take it whilst I was away for a week we did have a little bit of rain but nothing to really get to excited about!

I was in Ibiza last week (certainly no rain there!) and it was a wonderful week of beaches, wandering around Ibiza old town and some fantastic boat trips. There were of course a few late nights featuring alfresco dining, cocktails and fun that went on into the early hours!

We were due to fly out on the Saturday but because of weather conditions (we never really got an explanation of that!) the flight got cancelled so it was a last-minute scramble to find another flight for the Sunday. This meant we lost a day but being a ‘glass half full’ kinda guy I still felt blessed to have had six full days of Ibiza fun and sun!

Here are some of my favourite holiday photos, most of which were taken on the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8+ Smartphone offer – but more on that later!

I was often smiling to myself on holiday because as you can imagine even when I travel its a bit like ‘QVC on the road’ – everything from my Ultrasun sun protection to my Vionic flip flops for the beach, to the Heys luggage and the Z-pacs for the journey, the Australian Bodycare tea tree body wash (which I decanted) to stay fresh and even the Bose micro speaker I bought just before the holiday that I could even use in the shower getting ready for a night out – brilliant!

And now I am back I will continue to use the Gatineau tan accelerator to keep my skin looked tanned and bronzed as long as possible!

You can see the various photos of some of the above and look at this little fun video of the Heys luggage on the cobbled streets!

So, now it’s back to work and it’s a busy week ahead:

Wednesday into Thursday I will be launching the new Prime Fifty Today’s Special Value offer with a great deal on their fighting fatigue supplements; if you are new to this range, it’s developed by doctor of Biochemistry, Max Gowland and is targeted at those aged 50+. If you feel like you could do with a spring in your step do tune in for the launch or the breakfast show repast as Dr Max tells use about the formulation and ingredients he has developed for this supplement. And of course with it being a TSV, the price is brilliant and it’ s a four-month supply – can’t wait to share more with you on the show!

And then on Sunday there is the most incredible Today’s Special Value from Samsung… it’s the Galaxy S8+ smart phone and I was lucky enough to be able to take it away and trial it whilst in Ibiza, it’s brilliant! Super fast, super easy to use and for the camera alone it’s worth every penny. All holiday long my friends and I were constantly amazed at the colours, clarity and richness of the photos and videos it took. I have had a ‘fruity’ phone for as long as I can remember but I can honestly say I am tempted to move across to this one. It can do everything my other phone does plus the added benefit of the best camera I have EVER seen on a phone!

Have a look at this video taken from the boat in Ibiza:

So, that’s it from me this week – so glad to be back and looking forward to being back on-air at QVC. Sending you big hugs and do get in touch, I’d love to know if you have any holidays coming up?

    Great blog with amazing pictures from your time away with that Samsung. I’ve got really lazy about taking an extra camera with me when the phone does the job.

    Any recommendation for food & drinks in IBIZA town as we are going for a 40th Birthday in a few weeks?!

      Hi Joanne!

      There is a lovely place called El Olivio (means The Olive) and the food was amazing there. There is also a lovely little Ice Cream place in the old town, can’t remember the name but it’s just a window outside a restaurant so look out for it.

      Have a lovely time and a fantastic 40th Birthday!!!

    Hi Craig,
    Lovely holiday snaps! Glad you got your 6 days, sure that’s all you usually get anyway what with flight times! How do you stop your skin going scaly after your hol?
    That bose speaker is a good idea as the normal ones are so so expensive!
    Take care

      Hey Susan,

      Thanks for your comment and glad you like my pics :-).

      I just make sure I moisturize a lot to try and prevent scaly skin. The lotions for dry skin are even better.

      Take care and speak soon.
