Island of sal – Cape Verde

Island of sal – Cape Verde

On Easter Sunday, myself, my husband and friends met at Gatwick airport early in the morning to head off to the Island of Sal in Cape Verde. My husband treated us to a private lounge called My Lounge, it was lovely and peaceful, you could help yourself to tea and coffee, soft drinks and even alcohol, whenever you wanted and there was snacks to nibble on.  We all enjoyed sitting in a relaxed atmosphere before boarding our plane. We boarded our plane, and unfortunately, even though we were facing a…

Online Shopping

Online Shopping

Home shopping seems to be more and more popular these days, especially with our busy lifestyles, I know for me it is a lifeline, as I can not always get out of the house to go shopping.  One company that we (my husband) uses is Amazon, his view is if you can not find it on Amazon, you will not find it anywhere, and it is true, you can search for anything and they have it on their site. We also have, and take advantage of Amazon Prime, meaning we…

Panasonic Super Zoom Lumix Digital Cameras

Panasonic Super Zoom Lumix Digital Cameras

As my husband is a photographer, and I work along side him with the business, although when using my phone to take pictures I am useless,  I do have an interest in photography and cameras. Unfortunately, as our camera is a professional one and when out and about can get a bit bulky with the camera body and various lenses etc.  I started to think about getting a little camera that I could pop in my bag that would not take up much room and was easy to use.  Also…

The Ultimate Christmas Tag…

The Ultimate Christmas Tag…

I love tag posts, you get to answer questions you probably would never think to talk about on your blog posts, and like wise always learn something new about the poster. So I thought, I would start a Christmas Tag 2015, and share things about me and learn things about others 🙂 What is your favourite Christmas film? There are so many to choose from, but as I am an old romantic, I would have to say Love Actually is one of my favourites. Have you ever had a white…
