A few weeks ago I was invited to Jalon Vally in Spain to stay in a wonderfully charming villa c/o James Villas (you can read my review here). I've been incredibly lucky this year and have been invited on the most wonderful press trips. This is my second with James Villas this year (having stayed in one their Marbella villas in the Spring), as well as a stunning trip to Jamaica c/o Beaches!
I want to start by writing how incredibly grateful I am that this blog means wonderful travel opportunities for my family and I which allows us to see and experience parts of the world we've not visited before, both near and far.
Growing up it was always my dream to be a presenter so I had so much fun shooting my presenting debut for ITV, filming 3 slots for Good Morning Britain, even cooking today (Thursday) on the box (watch out Nigella) ;)
Tomorrow, 3 generations of the family - myself, my husband Peter, our 2 sons: Oliver and Alexander and my parents - will be heading Alicante staying in a villa kindly c/o of James Villas.
It feels like I've been away for ages folks (it was only a week!) Thanks for all the blog love while I was away in Marbella though and linking up your posts over my 2 week linky.
Last week saw 'part' of this family spend 7 days in Marbella, staying at the palatial Casa Haniel, a James Villa Holidays' villa in San Pedro, above, for a fabulous, relaxing, fun and invigorating week away.
Gambas Pil Pil!
Hey there regular readers and new ones too (where've you been people!) This week, this family is luckily going away on a press holiday with the gorgeous James Villas to Marbella for some rest, relaxation and hopefully sunshine!
