It was back in October that we visited Florence and I've only just gotten around to writing this up as I sit somewhere in the fog between Xmas and NYE. We fancied a last little blast of sun our our skin before we headed into winter in the UK, so the three of us and my mum booked four days in Florence, staying at an incredible Airbnb right next to Pitti Palace. Here's what we got up to!Read More
Last week I had the pleasure of being invited to Sweden courtesy of Visit Sweden. Me and three other bloggers all travelled to Skåne, the county where Malmo is situated. We travelled to a few cities within Skåne, but to start I thought I'd give you the lowdown on some cool design led things to do in Malmo, Sweden's third largest city.Read More
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
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
