Bear Grylls rumours and returning from sunny Spain
Hasn’t it been good weather in England the past couple of days?! So nice to get back from Spain and enjoy the sunshine in Blighty too!
So picking up from last week, a little bit more about my stay in this amazzzzzzing villa.
The website address is http://www.coolrentalguide.com/property/las-tortugas/16828 and I found the Cool Rental Guide via a recommendation from a mate It’s great for finding unusual and luxurious properties to rent for a holiday.
The villa is in the pretty town of Pollensa around 40/50 mins from Palma airport on the land of a private golf course. It is 6 bed, modern Villa with two lounges a huge kitchen, the master bedroom had a steam room and double baths in it which was amazing and the villa even had a lift to get up and down all the floors!
There was outside dining for 16 (there was only 7 of us so loads of space!) and a gorgeous deep green tiled pool with huge Buddha figures decorating it. When I wasn’t shooting the calendar with the team I relaxed on the sun loungers, ate lots of yummy Spanish food, hung out with my mum, who came over for a few days, and just generally chilled out! It was bliss.
I love staying in villas, as it’s a home away from home and you can have all your nearest and dearest with you all under one roof!
On the weekend Mark had a PA nearby so we left the villa on the Saturday afternoon (sob!) and then after the PA we flew back to London.
On the way back on the flight I started learning my lines for an audition I had this week for a really good part. I can’t say what it was for – only that it was for a TV drama, but I am keeping everything crossed!
Speaking of work, I read on Twitter this week that apparently I’m signed up to do a new Bear Grylls series?! Sounds like a great show but it’s news to me!!! I’m deffo not doing it, but good luck to the brave bods that are.
I also keep reading rumours that I’m doing Strictly? I love the show, it’s got such a feel good factor to it, and it would be great to learn to dance properly one day, but I’m not doing it , sorry! I’m going to concentrate on my acting for now.
I didn’t end up going to Ascot because it clashed with my audition but didn’t everyone look fabulous? I love the big dramatic hats but I don’t think I would have had the guts to wear one, I would go for something a little more refined I think!
When I got back to Manchester I couldn’t wait to pick up the dogs from my mum’s and get home. I’ve missed them so much!! We went for a long walk in a park near mine. Here are my babies:
After the mountain of washing I had to do I sorted through my make-up bag because some of the products were a bit worn and past their use by date. I didn’t know this until a year ago but make-up has a shelf life and you should (for example) change your mascara every 6 months!
I had treated myself to some new Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk foundation, MAC Blot Powder Medium for anti-shine at Duty Free, and also these beauties were waiting for me from Benefit when I got home! Perfect for dark circles, covering spots and evening out skin tone…
My retail therapy has been a bit sparse the last couple of weeks with me being away but I did go to Zara for a last minute shop (how great are all the stores in Gatwick airport?!) here’s my new leather jacket. Not exactly summery but I think it will last me for agessss! I’m well pleased with it because this kind of jacket is a classic piece and it was only £52 – BARGAIN!
I’m away again this weekend for another PA, and am going to start thinking about sorting through my home in Manchester when I get back, as I think I will (finally) be moving to down to Essex soon! I have SO much stuff to sort through, I genuinely don’t know where to start! Anyone got any good advice on packing/moving home? Tweet me at @michkeegan.
Until next week,
Lots of love
