SH Villa Gadea: 7 Days In Altea

I would say that Altea is probably one of my favourite towns in Alicante. Only an hour and a half drive south of Valencia it’s a town with a lot of character and relaxed surroundings, quite surprising as it’s only a 15-minute drive away from the vibrant atmosphere of Benidorm. After visiting Altea more than […]

Flamenco In Valencia

Flamenco In Valencia

Over the weekend, we found ourselves child-free, thanks to my in-laws who came to visit last week from the UK. They kindly offered to take the children off our hands so that my husband and I can spend a little alone time together. ;) We didn’t waste any time organising what we wanted to do, […]

Cotton Lights

Cable and Cotton Fairy Lights

One of my favourite things during winter evenings is the excuse to switch on my ‘cosy’ lights a little earlier than usual. There is something about soft and warm lighting that makes me feel all fluffy inside.  A month after moving in to our new home (over 2 years ago), I ordered a couple of […]

A weekend getaway in Valencia

The stress of work have been taking over our lives lately, for the past few months, it seems like that the husband and I hardly have time to do anything together. I guess one of the best things about living in Spain is that we do have a social life and during weekends our kids get […]

Stylish Summer Glasses from ASOS

Summer is finally here, and one thing I learned last year was to invest in some good sunglasses. Not only they are an absolute necessity, but they also make you look pretty cool and hide those heavy eye bags on early morning school runs! Everyone here wears them.  Indoors, outdoors, winter, spring and during the […]
