Hey peeps! Sorry for a few days of no blogs, we just got back from a week away in Copenhagen. You may remember that I visited CPH on a press trip with Amara earlier in the year, and because I loved it so much wed decided to take a trip as a family. I thought you might be interested in things to see in Copenhagen, and one of our most enjoyed days out of our holiday was this trip to Glyptoteket, an art museum built around the collection of Carl Jacobsen.Read More
Back in January I was invited along to visit Porcelanosa’s HQ in beautiful Valencia. After getting to explore the city a little, I realised that Valencia was the perfect family getaway. Warm, easy to travel around, culture, great history and architecture PLUS a shed load of museums, galleries and days out that would keep my 3 yr old daughter Marley well entertained without boring us to tears. We booked a cute little AirBnB and headed out at the end of May for what has been our first full family holiday since Stockholm a couple of years back.Read More
Ok, you might want to get a cup of tea cos this post is pretty epic! A couple of weeks ago the lovely folks at Amara took me and a few other bloggers to Copenhagen to explore the city and some cool Danish designers that they stock on their website for gifts and homewares. Not only did I fall in love with this city all over again to the point that we are thinking of moving (real talk and more on that later) but I got to indulge in great company, incredible Danish food and most importantly PRODUCT PORN!Read More
Last week I was lucky enough to be invited as a guest of Amara to Copenhagen for a whistlestop tour of the city's best design houses and brands. I have a full photo diary coming very soon, but in the meantime I thought you might appreciate this vlog I put together highlighting our favourite parts of our 3 day trip!Read More
Right peeps, get ready for some proper luxury here! In this post I'm sharing all of my photos from Day 2 of our trip to Valencia with Porcelanosa to see their showrooms and new product lines for 2016. On day one we got taken to an amazing restaurant and then on a tour of Valencia's history and architecture. That could in itself have been enough but on day 2 it was down to business as we got to explore the Porcelanosa factories and showrooms. Yes, I said showrooms - this company is HUGE! I am talking like, every showroom being the size of IKEA. We went to at least 5 of them, I lost count.
Read on to see just a fraction of what was going on at Porcelanosa's design festival. A Michelin starred chef cooking for us and some of the most exquisite bathrooms and kitchen I've ever seen are just some of what's going on in this post. Grab yourself a cuppa, cos it's a whopper!Read More
I was so, so lucky and grateful to be invited along by Porcelanosa to go and view their new range of surfaces, tiles, kitchens and bathrooms and to see their factory. Not only was I well up for this idea in general, but then I was informed that this would be taking place at their headquarters in the gorgeous surroundings of Valencia, Spain. SAYYY WHAAAT! This was my first press trip away so I was well excited to see the ins and outs of this luxury brand but also get to hang out with some fellow bloggers and design journos who were just as excited about how ceramic wall tiles were made as me (that sounds like sarcasm, it's not). I'm a huge fan of that show 'how it's made' so a trip to a factory was a little bit heavenly for me.
Anyway, all that stuff will be revealed in Day 2 of this photo diary. but for now, let me walk you through the amazing hospitality that we were shown from Porcelanosa. From slick hotel rooms to mouthwatering food, incredible architecture and sun... yes SUN, real sun!Read More
Hey peeps! At the end of summer my friend Naomi and I took a little weekend down in Whitstable to celebrate us both turning 30. I'd heard so many great things about Whitstable and all of the vintage shopping, great food.... and more vintage shopping. Of course it was the perfect choice for two girls whose ideal day is spent rummaging through the racks of a local charity shop. Ahhh, bliss.
See what we managed to find and check out my top recommendations for where to eat and WHERE TO SHOP!
Oh and I tried oysters for the first time ever. Like or puke? Find out!Read More
It is with great honour that my husband and I reached our tenth anniversary on the 29th April 2015! It's been an amazing ten years and I'm even more excited to see what the next ten hold. To celebrate, we jetted off to Santa Margherita Ligure, a resort town on the Italian Riviera a short distance from the famous Portofino. There was some fabulous architecture, some warm weather and a hell of a lot of carbs... Here's what we got up to!Read More
Back in the old music career days, I visited Stockholm a couple of times. But as usual with trips where it's on a plane-in hotel room-do a show-on a plane, you rarely get to see much of a city. This time we were going with a group of friends with the sole purpose of having fun and doing some vintage and flea market rummaging! Here's my photo diary...Read More
