Back to blogging... from Spain!

About time that I got back to blogging... it´s been a few months, but in my own defence, I have given birth and taken my "maternity leave" from all the social marketing in between... But back to work now... and back to really hard work on www.nectarina.co.uk, which to be honest, has been a bit forgotten for a while too...

I am currently in Spain choosing next year´s summer collection. It amazes me how year after year the designs get prettier and prettier... the colours more vibrant, the styles more sassy, but always keeping it elegant and stylish... in truly Spanish style... I´ve choosen lots of pinks, greys, lilacs... lots of ruffles, flowers, bows... very happy and very Andalusian... That´s what we want to bring to the UK, the light and spirit of this wonderful corner of Spain...

And for those who want to have a real taste of Andalusia, there is still a lot of summer to be enjoyed... Do like Michelle Obama and visit one of the most beautiful cities in Spain, Granada, with its intricate cobbled streets, moorish tea houses, ancient caves where flamenco is sang every night, and, of course, the Alhambra, one of the most emblematic palaces in the whole world. Shop for leather crafts and moorish antiques in one of the many little shops which surround the impressive cathedral or indulge in one of the many restaurants and tapas bars, where delicious tapas still are as they should be, free! Granada is the perfect destination for a long weekend away... and if you are looking for a place to stay, I can recommend a wonderful family hotel run by one of my best friends, the Hotel Cerro del Sol www.hotelcerrodelsol.com . The hotel is ideally situated, only 10min from the city centre, 40min from the coast and 30min from the wonderful mountains of Sierra Nevada. And with lots of tempting promotions all year round, you will sure find one to suit your budget.

I have to leave you for today. There is so much one-finger typing one can do with a baby in the other arm... :-)
