Since the sunshine has made a sparse appearance I’ve got a couple of summer skincare favourites to share with you today. I was going to pop up a little June favourites post but then I realised that I didn’t really have that many things that I was loving that I hadn’t chatted about before on here so a full on favourites post definitely wasn’t necessary.
I know, I know, peonies are such a blogger cliche but they’re just so beautiful, how can they not be Instagrammed within an inch of their pretty pink life? This gorgeous Peony Perfection bouquet from Blossoming Gifts is amazing and it arrived in great condition. Sometimes I think that flowers through the post can be risky and I’ve had bouquets in the past that have turned up a little bit bashed but Blossoming Gifts are always spot on as their packaging is super secure.
The South of France has been the inspiration for art from Picasso to Matisse and for some of the most iconic films of all time. Along the French Riviera, there are some incredible art museums and the journey in between each one is one of the most beautiful drives you will ever take. To explore these villages which inspired some of the great artists, rent a car at a luxury car rental in Nice through sites such as PrimeRent for example and start your unforgettable journey along the coast. Here is an example of a great itinerary for Southern France.
Festival season is something that us Brits live for. The mud, the unpredictable weather, the abandonment of tents (not advised) and the taste of cider in the sun. Obviously, if you’ve just been to Glastonbury you’ll be a pro at these but there are so many more festivals to come in the UK this year. There’s Reading & Leeds, Latitude, V Festival and loads more so these tips from My Voucher Codes might come in handy.
I wanted to do a blog post on my trip to Kassiopi and I’ve already done a little review on my amazing hotel which I 100% love. You can find that here if you’re interested in taking a look! I also did a quick post last year about 5 things to do in the town so I didn’t want to do that again so I’ve settled on a photo diary because, as they say, a picture paints a thousand words!
What’s better than cosying up with tea and cake on a rainy Saturday afternoon? Pretty much nothing in my opinion. We headed to Browns in Nottingham to sample the Royal Afternoon Tea which comes with all your usual Afternoon Tea goodies but with a bonus British Royale cocktail topped with juicy blackberries.
With summer on the horizon – or at least it would be if the weather would just perk up a little bit – many of us find ourselves hitting the gym with the aim of making us feel fitter and boost our confidence before we bare all (not literally) in our finest swimwear on the beach.
If you’re new to the fitness game, or just looking to get your gym bag organised, here’s a few essentials you don’t want to be without when you don your trainers and get that heart rate pumping.
The latest series of MIC is over and it was pretty much the same as the other series, am I right? But, I still love it, I still watch it and it’s all about that little bit of escapism with reality TV that I love. But, the thing with Made In Chelsea (over others like TOWIE etc) is the fact that I always want to go to every bar, cafe, restaurant, and club that they head to in London because they always look amazing! Here are my top 3 spots that you can head to in London in order to have an MIC weekend.
Just a super quick post today all about this amazingly easy and tasty protein packed bread from Jamie Oliver’s Everyday Super Food cookbook. I whipped this up the other Sunday and had a super snacky tea with some ham, cheese and chutneys and it was just delicious. You can find the recipe here but I’ll go through it quickly now too!
I spend a lot of my time in denim, black, white and navy with a sprinkling (OK, a bucket load) of Breton stripes. This is my usual wardrobe but when I head abroad to warmer weather I like to mix it up a bit with some jazzy prints and something a bit more exciting. These are my top 5 holiday pieces from my holiday just gone.
