A few years ago Jamie and I began our own tradition. Each new year, we take time out in the form of a one-night-staycation in order to mentally refresh. A Center Parcs Spa Suite is usually our destination of choice, but this year we headed to Congham Hall early instead. On check-in we switched off from the outside world in the best way possible, embracing a cosy atmosphere, great food, and even better company.
If we’re friends on social media you may know that this comes to you in place of a Prague travel post. Unfortunately, a series of unfortunate events en route to the airport led to us missing our flight. After some angry words and hours on the phone, we sat in the car determined not to waste our week. There were very few flights available and the limited last-minute options decided on the Eurostar to Paris for us.
I’ve not visited many spa’s and quite frankly, it’s because I’ve gotten lazy. With one like Aqua Sana on my doorstep I’ve never felt the need to look much further afield. Last year I briefly covered our experience at Aqua Sana whilst recommending a new year spa stay but our second experience of their Luxury Break definitely warrants more detailed coverage.
I fell in love with the water at a very early age. At nine years old we visited Seaworld (before all of their bad press) and discovering the marine life there almost rivalled being at Magic Kingdom and meeting the Princesses themselves. Since then I’ve been on several holidays near to a Sea or Ocean and have taken every opportunity to be out on or in the water as much as possible. With the clocks having recently gone back an hour and the British weather becoming more and more gloomy, I’ve been feeling a strong urge to pack up and travel anywhere warm.
Ever since September last year, I’ve been wishing away the cold weather. I’ve been dreaming of the comfortable warmth that we all love, which Spring tends to re-introduce us to. February’s Pink Trucker Jacket purchase encouraged me to dress for Spring far earlier than is typical. Now that its April and I’ve traveled to slightly warmer climates, I’m so happy that I’ve been able to provide my wardrobe with a few new additions. I love creating look books and travel ones in particular, so I knew that as I headed off to Greece I’d love to share my wardrobe. Here’s a look book that’s suitable for Spring, Summer and any holidays to warmer climates! Welcome to the beginning of the better weather, I can’t wait!
Who doesn’t love holidays? This Saturday I’m venturing off on my first of 2018, a short stay in Halkidiki, Greece. Although I’m one of those strange people who quite enjoys packing and is ready to go nearly weeks in advance, I do struggle when it comes to selecting what beauty products to take with me. When I’m at home I like having six different foundations to choose from based on how my skin looks that day. My shower hosts a variety of gels because I like to change it up, but apparently packing a variety of every product for a five-day trip is unnecessary.
