Vila Sol, Vilamoura, Portugal

Last week, Hubby and I enjoyed a glorious holiday staying in a beautiful town house in Palmyra Resort, Vila Sol, Portugal. Amazing views from roof terrace, Vilamoura Old Town and Marina plus fab Portuguese food and drink. A peaceful and relaxing break. :)

Country Living Spring Fair 2015

Saturday was spent at the Country Living Spring Fair, Business Design Centre, Islington, London. My first visit to this particular event, and I was impressed by the variety on display. Country Living champion craftspeople and small businesses and that's what the Spring Fair is all about - fabrics, furnishings, accessories, art, crafting and more, all from hand-picked makers. Great value for money at £13 (advance booking, adult ticket) for an enjoyable, inspiring day out.

Girlie night out on Friday at the amazing Hold The Anchovies, Witham, Essex. First class food and the fantastic 'My Winehouse' Amy Winehouse tribute act. All for £35 a head plus drinks. Laura Jane Butler bears an uncanny physical resemblance to the late, great Amy, with a soulful, powerful voice to match. So, why don't come over Valerie?
