Hello from our Beach Cabana

Just a quick note from our holiday in Turkey to say I’m thinking lots about this blog, what I want it to be and how I want it to grow.  I’ve been blogging for about 18 months now “properly” and have loved every minute of it (I just wish I had more time to spend on it!).

I think I’ve still got so much to talk about, lots to tell you about me and of course, lots of food to eat and restaurants to review!

So, as I’m sitting in our private beach Cabana, I’m feeling inspired, relaxed and incredibly grateful.

If you have anything that you’d like to see more of on this blog, or things you’d like to see that you haven’t yet, or comments in general, let me know! After all, I want you to keep reading 🙂

How to look after your skin on holiday

It is so easy to forget about your skin and keeping it well protected when enjoying yourself in the sun. We all do it and think we can be out for longer than we can in the Summer don’t we?

Sunbathing and soaking up the rays in Turkey has made me think about the steps I’ve taken to look after my skin when on holiday. I have a fairly pale complexion with freckles and moles, so can’t be silly and over-expose my skin to the sun. As I’ve entered my late twenties, the importance of healthy (wrinkle-free) skin, far outweighs having a good tan. But of course I still love to have some colour and feel healthier with a bit of a tan, I just don’t bake myself relentlessly for hours a day.Continue reading

5 Brit Flicks For Your Next Film Night

I love a good film! I love the styles that different countries have developed in film, like France’s talent for an artfully crafted noir, or the flamboyant musicals of Bollywood cinema in India.

I might be a little biased, but I do love British cinema. Differences from American-based and produced films might be slim at times, but I’m always more excited at the new release of a Brit flick.

If you ever feel like “binge-watching” (an expression recently added to the online Oxford Dictionary) some great British films yourself, here are five of my personal favourites.Continue reading
