Yeas, You Can Shop On Gran Canaria

I guess the summer holiday is over now as the schools are “back in business “. August is still the warmest month down here in Gran Canaria and soon the island will be filled with tourists trying to escape the harsh , brutal KING WINTER.

Thank god for a stable climate !!!

We don´t get snow down here..uh that´s not true…that has actually happened up in the mountains…ughh…NOT OFTEN TOUGH 😉

But if you live down here you do actually need a bit warmer clothes down here in the winter season.

The south of the island is the warmest all year around, but when it comes to shops in general it is definitely better to go up north.

in the south you dont get the selection , the fashion , the scoops! And even tough it is rather cheap, it is cheaper up north.

So many shops, not enough money 😉

ZARA , STRADIVARIUS , PRIMARK , just to mention some. And now with the fall arriving quicker than the summer usual do, we all need t renew our wardrobe. That goes for BOTH men and women 😉

Follow You Heart

I was recently in a wedding, it was soooo nice! They had done it in their own style and fitted the couple perfectly! A bit of tradition with their own twist. Nowadays that is what it should all be about. Or?

There are many couples that comes down to get married on the Canary Islands. All year around. And of course , why not? The weather is nice, it is somewhat cheaper and so on and so on.

However, they all seem to look the same…

Sort of ish´ the same “beach wedding dress” or the big classic cream cake ones. Same reception place all of course decorated in white , same music, same,same, same!!!

If you where to marry the love of your life, would you not like it to be a bit special?? To sort of reflect the love and the persons you are?

I mean it is supposed to be only once ???

I know people expect it to be like this and this. “Oh, you should” , “Oh, you need to ” ….

In the end of the day, it is your BIG day. Do what you WANT. Not what you feel you have to.

It is a celebration of two peoples L O V E ❤

I Scream For Ice cream

A couple of days ago we went walking around in the little fish village Arguineguin, based in the south of the Island. As many times before we went up towards the Ancora center. But this time we realized that we actually had never tried the “new” ice cream cafe/bar. ( it has actually been there 1 year now, I think :/ )

Anyways. OMG ! This is definitely a MUST !!!

They have lovely Italian-style  ice cream, milkshakes, frappés, proper coffee etc. AND crépes that they make in front of you filled with lovely fresh strawberries and bananas, served with cream or ice cream of you own liking….mhmmmmmm……

You will find it on the left side of the center and the name is LOS ALISIOS.

We are so going back to this place and with this heatwave we are having now, maybe more then once a day 😉

The are open from Tuesday till Sunday from 2:00 – 22:00

Are you a Beliber?

Oh, no no no …I meant are you a BELIEVER? Do you believe that  there are more to life then what you can see ? More between heaven and earth ?

Open Mind Promotions is at the end of July holding demonstrations/workshops and readings with UK medium Paul Cissell 

here in the south of Gran Canaria.

One of the days workshop is developed to serving your personal development in a way that is practical, psychologically insightful as well as spiritually inspiring.

I think we all need some kind of guiding in these times we are in now. There is definitely a lot happening in our world and sometimes it is hard to feel like you are following the right path or are truly being true to yourself.

THIS SHOULD BE INTERESTING ! 😀

However, if you want to attend the event you will have to reserve a place. Hurry up and DO it NOW !
