The French Alps offer the chance to live out the ski trip of your dreams! Especially if you love a bit of nightlife and the old apres ski activities! The variety of different ski resorts in Europe allows you to find the absolutely perfect spot for letting your hair down in the evenings. Here are the top five ski resorts in France that are ready for partying.
We like to get out and about in the UK, try new towns and cities and always find a new coffee shop to delve into. This weekend we stayed at the Cheltenham Park Hotel which is a huge hotel in the beautiful Cotswolds and I thought I’d tell you all about it.
The Location & Facilities
Cheltenham Park is actually located in Charlton Kings, about 2 miles drive from the centre of Cheltenham in a quiet area and only about 10 minutes from Cheltenham Racecourse. It’s a really big hotel, one of the biggest I’ve stayed in but the rooms are all great sizes. There is a gym, spa, beauty and health club facilities with a pool, sauna, jacuzzi and steam room. We spent some time in the well-equipped gym and the pool on Saturday afternoon which was lovely. I decided to run a 5km in addition to my Marathon In A Month that I’m doing for the British Heart Foundation and I loved running on an actual treadmill instead of the road for once!
I headed to London this weekend to see some of my best friends, do some shopping and also attend a blogger networking event. I love a quick trip to a different city and I had the best time. Check out my Instagram with some snaps from the weekend if you fancy! I explored some new places and absolutely loved Hoxton & Hackney but definitely found that I was missing some essentials that would have made my trip a lot easier.
Here comes another hotel review for all you keen travellers! This weekend we stayed at the Risley Hall Hotel & Spa as part of a Red Letter Days gift that we received for Christmas and the hotel was so pretty I thought I’d write a little review as it’s a great location for the East Midlands.
I’ve always wanted to visit Canada, but it’s such a huge place and whenever I sit down to (virtually) explore another area looking for the perfect destination, I change my mind once more. Where I want to go, the things I want to see, the tours I want to experience.
I think I’ll have to take a few trips over there before I’ve satisfied my Canadian wanderlust, but for me, I’ve decided on Ontario as the first destination for my Canadian adventure. It has so much to offer though, that I thought I’d give you guys a few tips on how to plan your sight-seeing. It’s certainly helped me to decide where to start!
“The Seven Flowers Swede Dating event follows on from a time-honoured Swedish folklore on Midsummer’s Eve in Sweden where it’s tradition for single women to pick seven flowers and place them in under their pillow at night, and they’ll dream of their future husband. With this in mind, Rekorderlig Cider is hoping the single men and women of London will find the partner of their dreams during the swede dating events!”
I only arrived home from Greece about two weeks ago but we’ve already booked a short break to Barcelona and I’m so excited. I’ve already been looking up the top things to do so if anyone’s got any recommendations for things to do, places to eat etc I’d love to hear them.
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.
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!
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.
