As most of you know, I am a full-time blogger, and I work from home, or I am on the move. Meetings in town, working from cafes, travelling to photoshoot locations and getting from place to place in my city and abroad means I carry around a lot of things with me. So I always need a stylish, lightweight and spacious bag that can store clothing, laptop, makeup, wallet and my camera equipment.
A few days after the end of the Autumn/Winter fashion week in London, one of the most iconic British brands decided to reinvent everything with a newer, striking look for their website, and a focus at stocking great selections of luxury designer watches. It was a pleasant and welcoming feel for me as I decided to visit the renovated website and check out the new collections for myself.
Winter is coming. You’ve probably heard that before except that for us in the UK, winter has already begun in November. It’s time to ditch lighter attires for heavier ones for protection against the weather. But there is another reason to be excited about; winter brings the opportunity to wear the most stylish jacket, the favourite pair of warm boots, and your favourite scarf as well. I for one at least get excited about the prospect of being able to dress in coats and jackets I wait all year to wear.
It was finally the weekend and we were on our way to the Bedford Lodge Hotel and Spa. I had looked forward to the day all week. It was 14th October, the second day of the Dubai Future Champions Festival at Newmarket Racecourses. We reached our destination a little before 10 in the morning, and just in time as well as our guide for the Discover Newmarket Tour was due to pick us up at 10 am. Discover Newmarket delivers a range of tours for groups and individuals to go behind the scenes at the Home of Horseracing. I was excited and looking forward to the Short Head Tour and Race Day Tour with Discover Newmarket. Frankie (our tour guide), arrived right on time to pick us up. We dropped our bags at the hotel to be taken to our rooms when ready and began our activities for the day.
This weekend I will be heading to Dubai Future Champions Festival, a two day racing event at Newmarket Racecourse on 13th October and 14th October.
“Are you sure you got the right address?”, my husband was looking at me but frankly, I was just as confused as he was. It was October 29th, midday, and we had just reached our destination in the province of Provence, France (which is just divine this time of the year by the way). We had landed at the airport and made our way to La Maison d’Ulysse. Luggage by our sides, we were standing in front of a typical French looking home. We looked at the board and it was indeed the boutique hotel we had booked for. Phew!
This is the time I have been waiting for the moment I grasped the touch of the countryside wind; the time I will write for you guys about my incredible experience in the river cottage. River Cottage is a highly cherished place and you may know that it has been in limelight since the show with the same name that aired from this beautiful place. This place takes the credit of revolutionising the idea of cooking shows and till now it enjoys the position of being the headliner of various renowned cookbooks. For me, this place was a Dream and this dream didn’t come true until I received a gracious invitation from The Original Muck Boot company.
Summer holiday season is official over and we have stepped in to autumn, with that it’s time to forget sipping Pina coladas by the beach. We all start getting that ‘back to work’ feeling. Getting away from the sea, sun and fun not to think about the millions of emails that may have hit your inbox can feel quite depressing.
During London Fashion Week, I was invited to try out the Fashion Week cocktails after shows at the luxurious Dukes Hotel’s GBR restaurant. Located at a five-minute walk from Buckingham Palace, and located in the heart of Saint James’ Mayfair, the luxurious British hotel fabled for its hospitality is a favourite amongst fashionistas. It is frequented by the likes of US Vogue Editor, Anna Wintour, Olivia Firth, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Pippa Middleton.
