I feel like my feet aren’t touching the floor of late. I’m not going to lie, I have been so ridiculously busy my head is spinning!
I have been working on a new, exciting (and secret) project as well as getting into the thick of my clothes range. It’s all going on! I know I need to stop thinking of everything all at once but it is so easy to get lost in your thoughts and project yourself into the future. To stop thinking of what you want and where you want to be, and start living in the here and now, is much easier said than done. I have started to read a book called Mindfulness for Dummies (not sure I appreciate the title!). I have always been interested in meditation and I have been saying I would love to take classes as I think it’s so important to be able to relax and give yourself that bit of time for you. It makes you look at the world differently, or should I say, makes you take note and appreciate how beautiful the world we live in is! I am loving it and find it so interesting.
I managed to read the first few chapters while on a short break from the madness, with Wes. We went to Puerto Banus in Marbella; no kids, just us. It was so amazing to have a bit of quality time together and I love Marbella. With the fancy designer shops, the big yachts and people-watching in the restaurants on the port, we had a totally chilled out time (no crazy nights, just us and the sunshine!).
If ever you get the chance one of my favourite spots is La Sala restaurant and bar. The food is lovely and the atmosphere is great. It’s nice to get a table outside because it gets lively inside, but if you don’t like standing I would book an inside table from the off set if you want to be in the mix! Los Bandidos is my favourite restaurant on the port. The food is lush and it’s situated right next to Louis Vuitton and Dolce and Gabbana, amongst other lovely shops!
We stayed at The Guadalpin Hotel as it’s only a short walk along the beach into the port (so no car needed) and the Mistral Beach, which is right in front of it, is really lovely. They have traditional Spanish food which is beautiful and the beach is very chilled. You’ll find everyone from young to old to families! Obviously if you’re going for a crazy time that’s a different story…I will fill you in on the best spots next time I go with the girls! Haha!
