Summer in The UK | Penzance

A Summer spent in the UK and an Autumn spent reflecting on it. It feels a bit late in the day to be still talking about what we got up to in August but sometimes you need a little time to reflect and collect thoughts, or even the need to keep it to yourself as […]

Summer in the UK | The Rectory Hotel

I was lucky enough to be swept away to the Cotswolds to the beautiful Rectory Hotel for some Summertime bliss.   It was a Birthday treat which felt one hundred more times a treat this year.  The weather was a balmy 33 degrees, the journey was a couple of hours drive through the very pretty Wilshire […]

Summer in the UK | A week in North Devon

A few weeks back I was lucky enough to escape to North Devon for seven days with my family. After having two holidays cancelled and maybe a little too much time spent in my kitchen, I had a desperate urge to escape ( as we all must have felt over these crazy few months) and […]

Midsummer Days

Well hello Midsummer, how did we get here?  Not that I am not pleased to see you but it has been a slightly odd, bumpy track to get us to this meeting point.  Some might say a life changing, history defining, incomprehensible, journey across unknown terrain to get here.  Hurrah, we made it and aren’t […]

Postcards from Puglia….

 This post was originally written at the start of March, just a few days before Italy went into lockdown and then we subsequently followed.  I decided not to post it at the time  as I felt it was insensitive, not important and it it quite frankly it didn’t sit well to be indulging in my […]

Greek Island Hopping | Donoussa

We left Pino di Loto ridiculously early to catch our ferry to our final Greek Island. With heavy hearts, off we were Donoussa bound and within three hours hearts were lightened as we arrived at the beautiful Little Cyclade and at the tiniest port.  The bluest, clearest of water, it could have been the Caribbean but […]

Summer Care with Institut Esthederm

As I pack my bag for a final little Summer jolly for the last time this Summer, I could not not talk to you about some of my favourite Summer products.  I used these lavishly in Greece, again on those crazy, balmy hot days in the UK (where did they go?) and once again they […]

Greek Island Hopping | Pino Di Loto, Syros.

Sometimes you can come across a place, a hotel, gorgeous people or a time, which is/are so unbelievably amazing,  you want to hide it away, savour it,  and keep it only for yourself for as long as you possibly can.   However, as the  Summer begins to comes to a close and I start to reflect […]

Greek Island Hopping | Tinos Island

I am not sure you can beat the Greek Islands for that epitome of the idyllic Summer holiday.  The bluest of skies, the warmest of sun, water and people. Cuisine to make your mouth water on just the mention of the word, Moussaka.  Stunning bays and beaches,  the bluest, cleanest, clearest and sparkliest of water […]

Postcards from Camber Sands.

Last weekend we escaped down to the good ole seaside for a ‘chilled, full of sea air’  48 hours in Camber Sands.  We rented an airbnb with friends which was less than a five minute walk to the beautiful beach, covered in golden sand which is unlike all the other shingle /pebble beaches along Sussex […]
