I don’t yet have access to my email until I find the wire for my laptop, that has slunk away during our move.
So I’m not ignoring you…..I’m just borrowing someone’s pc until the wire comes out for feeding time…..
I ordered a YSL gift box on October 18th from Slapiton.tv and on the 28th October I wrote to them frustrated that nothing had arrived and no communication had taken place to inform me of any delays.
I was assured a couple of days later via email that the order would be shipped on the following Tuesday and that there had been a shipping delay.
It is now the 12th November and still nothing has arrived…..no email communication either.
So if you are planning to use Slapiton.tv as you think you may save £2.00 on a beauty product, beware. I have been onto forums and seen many customers who have received exactly the same lack of customer care and service as me.
There isn’t an insurance product out there to stop someone’s Christmas being spoilt because there present hasn’t arrived on the big day.
So I’m providing this insurance service for you.
If you want to order beauty gifts from a reliable company, go to Boots, or CheapSmells online. Both have never let me down…..unlike Slapiton.tv.
You can order from Amazon and get delivery to Spain. Amazon UK has an excellent choice of products, all in English and delivery to Spain is mostly free if you spend over £15.00. You can order here.
Amazon Es or Amazon España is now up and running. You can order books, playstation games, music at a fraction of the price you will pay in the shops in Spain.
You can pay for postage which isn’t expensive OR for just under 15 euros per year you can get unlimited free postage on your Amazon Es purchases and they are offering a free trial, so for your first purchases you will pay nothing. Delivery is within 3-5 days.
I’ve been given a Christmas list from my teen daughter already…..
“Can I have a 6000 euro camera?”
“Can I have a 300 euro camera?”
“Can I have a telescope?”
“Can I have an Ipad?”
“I want a fox”
There should be an insurance you can take out at Christmas for disappointed kids.
It is goodbye from me….. I’m afraid that shortly this blog will change track completely from following events and happenings in Marbella to something rather different…..financial news and reports and the latest insurance offers in the UK.
It is something that I’ve been doing on another website for a while and it makes sense to track the two sites together.
I hope you will pop by sometimes to leave comments as many of you have, it is nice to hear from people. Hopefully the new blog will draw fresh faces too.
If you want to follow a blog on Marbella still then check out this one, Marbella Family Fun.
I have just installed commentluv as a plugin. So now if you have a blog and you leave a comment you get a link…..providing it isn’t spammy or too saucy!
A friend has decided to go to Cuba on her own and travel around. Cuba is a communist country and so she hasn’t been able to send me any photographs as in Cuba internet access is restricted.The locals are not allowed internet access but the hotels have them available and are Government owned.
She is absolutely having a ball in Cuba. She is finding dancers and live music around each street corner and staying with families in beautiful old buildings with wrought iron balconies with tumbling geraniums falling from each corner. She has 2 double beds in her room, a dressing room and a dining area…with mountain views.
Here are a few of her comments on her travels and the prices! Thought I would post this as there are a few holidays on offer at all inclusive hotels in Cuba and they offer tremendous value. My friend stayed the first few nights in a five star hotel and was paying 50 euros per night.
“Today – ate the most amazing lobster, with rice and salad —– for yes can believe it 4 euros – I took a picture to prove to you all that life here is amazing. I am currently staying on a thin strip of land that has the Caribbean ocean on both sides !!!”
“I took a pony taxi cart – with my luggage today – 5 cents and then the local for 5 cents – on both occassions gentleman offered to put my luggage on and take it off. Also, a young man offered his seat on a bus … there is so much courtesy and respect here.”
“Forget to say – bought a fresh pineapple and mango in the market today both for a total amount of 25 cents !!!! I have also seen mango trees for the first time – they look great with the big juicy fruit hanging from them.”
“The homes here are fabulous ‘- I could have moved this morning to an amazing house – antique furniture and french lights from 100 years ago -worth a fortune in the west, but I decided to stay with my current family as they are really lovely – they are preparing tonight for me a prawn dish.”
“Then I found a great group of musicians aged 50 to 70 I think – wow, they were cuban jamming – it was fabulous – again they let me take lots of photos. I had a salsa class this morning – hysterical – Mireya this large black Mama – she was trying to get me to move my shoulders – she was in hysterics as I am such a wooden European when it comes to dancing – mind you she said I had great hip movement.”
“Also, I found to gems of restaurants – they are using pottery and glassware that are collectors items 100 + years – I took so many photos – it would be like eating at Buckingham Palace.”
I can’t wait for Tina’s next email…….
