Shoreditch House oozes cool (I know, what was I doing there right?). It is a members-only hotel complete with bars, restaurants, nail parlour and the most exciting thing of all – a rooftop pool. I have heard that becoming a member is pretty hard as it requires you to know 2 existing members who can refer you onto the waiting list but I was lucky enough to stay over recently when hosting a blogger sleepover with bareMinerals. The sleepover was… View Post

It was my friend Maddie who first told me about Canopy and Stars last autumn after I mentioned that I was heading to Scotland and was thinking about glamping. Sadly we couldn’t find any suitable accommodation for that particular Scotland visit (which you can read more about here) but we were so inspired at the amazing, beautiful and unique stays on the website that I just had to share it with you.

So for this April, my Sunday Favourites have been: The Liar’s Club by Mary Karr This memoir was published in the 90s and details Mary’s chaotic childhood in an east Texas oil town with a hard drinking daddy and an oft-married,… View Post

Last week I celebrated my birthday with drinks & dancing with the girls followed swiftly (and gratefully) by a restful staycation with Marc in the New Forest. We had left it until the last minute to decide where to go but I’m so happy that we settled on the New Forest as it was so incredibly beautiful and completely beat my expectations. Predominantly lying in Hampshire, the New Forest is a National Park made up of wild woodland, vast heaths,… View Post
