A Weekend At The Bell Inn, New Forest

Last weekend was my first time in New Forest. It seemed so wonderfully full of wildlife and peace. The Bell Inn is a charming rustic hotel with a food menu to die for and a place I'd definitely recommend others to visit. Pack your wellies, warm coats and get ready for some escapism.

My Weekend Detoxing, Resting & Recovering

Having just returned from Costa Rica, the first couple of weeks back working were rather tiresome to say the least. The laborious task of catching up on over 3,000 emails, voicemail messages and and tax return conversations with my accountant had me feeling like I needed another break. So when I saw the new package at Champneys that helps to combat that festive indulgence and refresh ones self, I couldn’t resist checking in for some…

How To Regain A Balanced, Pure Way Of Living

With A Pure Balance Retreat Don’t Expect A Spa So those who follow me on Instagram would have seen some of the most incredible pictures from a recent weekend retreat. The venue? Hillerson House. Surrounded by 200 acres of land there’s plenty of woodland, lakes and deer (no, really) to help calm your mind and offer that true ‘escapism’ from the hustle and bustle of London. Don’t expect a spa resort because this is something else,…

Getting Back To Nature | A Country Escape

I enjoy good food. Love great wine. I live in the city but am from the country so I crave the green scenery once in a while. I’m pretty easy to please. Unfortunately it’s often rare to find a place that combines everything I adore without fault and one that offers a relaxing experience for a break away. After a heavy five days partying in Las Vegas (post coming soon), feeling enormously jet lagged Daniel and…

The Quintessential Luxury St James Stay

Next to one of London’s most prestigious Royal Parks (Green Park), is The Stafford Hotel. Established in 1912, it’s a stately, five-star picture-perfect venue.

What’s really special is the American Bar that offers some superb cocktails.  If luxury is what you’re after, you’ll struggle to exceed the quality of The Stafford. The…

A Guide To Holiday Fashion

Packing for a surprise trip can sometimes be so difficult, especially if you don’t know where you’re going. If the brief is ‘hot’, ‘casual’ but with a hint of ‘party’ for that special night out (like my birthday), then we know to bring a swimsuit (a few), maxi’s and a cool pant/top combo. That will always be enough. Us girls like options, so doubling up on outfits is always a good idea. So on a…

Panoramic Views & Cocktails In Rome

An Aperitif at Waldorf Astoria’s Rome Cavalieri On Instagram and Twitter you’ll have seen that I’ve been spending the past couple of weekends away; Morocco this weekend, Rome last. At 40 degrees and with its spicy scent, Morocco is a huge cultural contrast to the chic weekend spent with my family in Italy. Palatial Reception Desk at Rome Cavalieri Those who’ve read my engagement story from last year will know that Rome is a special place for me. Not only is it…

The Judgement of Paris at The Vineyard

You’ll know from my recent reviews how important I believe weekend breaks to be when you’re living in London and battling against the rat race every day. I used to think a weekend break wasn’t a trip away unless it was abroad (I’ve been to Amsterdam about four or five times). However, recently I’ve come to see just how marvellous the UK actually is. The quintessential English weekend away has quickly become my preferred way to relax. So…

Farmhouse Chic

When you live in London, it’s so easy to adapt to the concrete jungle. High rise buildings, traffic on Regents Street, people everywhere… But remember, human beings aren’t designed to live that way and it’s amazing how it can affect you in a negative way. Being from Wales, I’m fortunate that I can visit my family there whenever and when I do, I always come back more relaxed and calm. With the trees, hillsides and big gardens…

Venice | A Life Without Cars & Roadways

I’d studied Google images, chatted to my Venetian for tips and even consulted the Natwest Concierge service for some recommendations on what to do in Venice before we had arrived. It wasn’t so much knowing what to do though, the difficulty lay in actually getting there. A total surprise for Daniel’s mum, we managed to check in, board the same plane, fly to Italy, get off and get through the other side without being seen. A…

Spa & Romance At Bank House

So the time had finally come for us to head to the luxurious Bank House Spa in Worcester for a much needed – and dare I say, romantic – weekend break. This was set to be our celebratory, happy three year anniversary slash Valentines Day treat and I couldn’t wait to down phones and dip my toe in the jacuzzi together. Well, I did check that they had WIFI before hand, you know, ‘just incase’. Oh and I…
