Luxury Staycation in London | Duke’s Hotel Mayfair

by

A staycation is something I hardly ever get to do, can't remember when last I had one... If you remember this post How to transition your bedroom from summer to winter & Luxury Bedroom with Juliette’s Interiors, it was a challenge from Juliette's Interior to design my dream luxury bedroom using some of their products. As it happened, they liked my post and I won the competition. To cut the story short, they organized an overnight stay for 2, including breakfast at the Duke's Hotel in Mayfair. I slotted in a suitable date and I dragged my husband along with me. Duke's Hotel Mayfair A boutique hotel tucked right in the heart of Mayfair. A walking distance from Green Park and Piccadilly Circus so location is perfect if you want to get about and see a bit of London. Promptly checked in at 2pm, set for a chilled time at the hotel and a little wander ...

One Night In Paris

by

One night in Paris! Guys, I can not tell you how much I needed to get away. Even if only for one day...and I did just that. Coincidentally, I was in Paris same time 3 years ago with my other half, you can read about that trip in this Travel Diary. This time, I went with my friend. I think city breaks are perfect for friends. I haven't been outside of the UK in almost 3 years, so YES, here's to the first trip of many this year - so help me God.   So, we left for Paris early Saturday morning, had no rest, did stuff, went to bed at 4 am. With 4 hours of sleep, we were up and about again on Sunday. Got on the train back to London at 7 pm on Sunday. Didn't get back home until 12am. I've been a like a zombie all week, I'm running ...

A Few Things I Didn’t Share in ’16

by

Peace out 2016. Here's my last post for the year, just wanted to get a few things I didn't share in '16 off my chest. As you know, we bloggers like to share, either a little or a lot. We get that urge or feel the need to share every life event with anyone who is willing to listen. Instagram check, Snapchat check, YouTube and of course the next social platform we don't even know of yet. I sometimes go back to my old tweets and wonder 'what the heck was on about?' why o why did I decide to share such an irrelevant information with anyone....?! Four years of blogging and I haven't quite mastered the art of sharing, you know, like a proper blogger. If I was to rate myself in the blogging world of sharing, I'll be a 4/10. I move on quickly from the things that are sometimes ...

Cottons Caribbean Restaurant and Rhum Shack In Notting Hill

by

Cottons Caribbean Restaurant and Rum Shack launched its new flagship restaurant in Notting Hill. With the convenience of the new location, I could finally experience the renowned restaurant at it’s finest.So, off to Cottons it was, with my friend L… Cottons pride itself as the only bar stocking the largest collection of rum in the UK, with over 300 varieties available.The restaurant brings the exotic vibes of the Caribbean to Notting Hill in true tiki style. Now we are talking huh? I was shown some of the fanciest and rather impressive rum bottles ever. Since I was in rum heaven, it wouldn’t be right not to give a rum a go, right? I decided to keep it minimal and opted for any spicy number - I was being polite. I shared a tour of the interior on snapchat {astylediary_1}, I was most taken by the hand painting on the wall opposite the ...
