Now and then, we all need a good pamper. If I’m feeling particularly low or stressed, a combination of sweating it out at my favourite boxing class followed by a trip to a beautiful salon is guaranteed to boost my mood. Luckily there are plenty of awesome nail and blow dry bars in London to suit all budgets, so I wanted to share a few of my favourites below: Cheeky and Barber & Parlour: Best for Pedicures Holborn (smaller) and… View Post

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.

The pretty island is not far from Essex but can only be driven to when the tide is out for a few hours each day. Dubbed ‘the English Hamptons’, it holds an assortment of upscale holiday rentals overlooking the water which can be rented out for events,… 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

Thanks to The Frugality, I have recently discovered an amazing ‘affordable luxury’ hotel website that specialises in budget boutique hotels and its name is: Doris & Dicky. I love browsing luxury travel hotel websites like Mr & Mrs Smith and Secret Escapes but rarely can I afford to actually book any of the hotels on there. Which is where Doris & Dicky comes in. It’s mission is to share the world’s best budget boutique hotels for around £100 a night, handpicked by… View Post
