– -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 ...

One Night Only | The Castle Hotel Windsor

by

  I was recently invited to the launch party of the Castle Hotel Windsor a part of the Mgallery by Sofitel. I had the opportunity to spend a night as well as a  detailed tour of the beautiful hotel. The recently renovated boutique hotel sits on Windsor’s quintessentially English Hight Street right opposite the Royal Guildhall and adjacent to the Windsor Castle, how perfect?  History & Cool Facts While many may not be too concerned about the history of a hotel, I think a few fun facts is always a good idea, especially because Windsor is culturally rich and I am fascinated by a little bit of history. It’s over 500 years old, started off as an Inn in the 1500s and is one of the oldest in Windsor Grew popular in the 1600s The inn keeper started brewing his own ciders and beers In the 1700s, the innkeeper was appointed as a Royal Warrant. The hotel ...
