Wedding Wednesday – Planning our Honeymoon to Mexico

You may have seen that last month, Ed and I finally got round to booking our honeymoon. We are flying out to Mexico in two months, during the Easter break and I am both excited and nervous in equal parts! Whilst researching places to stay in Mexico, we looked into lots of options. I always research a destination extensively before making a decision. I was tempted to go off the...

Wedding Wednesday – Our Minimoon Stay at Fistral Beach Hotel & Spa

Ok, so this is technically our second minimoon stay since getting married in September, but who’s counting? Plus, as we had our uk wedding reception in November, this is the minimoon for that wedding, so totally justified, right? Anyways, we had booked this mini break months ago and I have been so excited to visit the hotel as it looked incredible when we were researching places to stay – the...

My Maiden Voyage into Blogging Conferences – Exploring the MSC Preziosa for Blog Camp on Board 

Next January I will have been blogging for a grand total of seven years and yet in all that time I haven’t attended one blog conference – I’m such a bad blogger! One of the main things that puts me off the larger blogging events is that they all tend to be either fairly far up north (for me anyway, down in Bournemouth), or they will be in London, which...

Preserving Our Santorini Memories with Hello Canvas 

I first heard about Hello Canvas a few months ago, and when I spoke to the lovely Jennifer over the summer about a collaboration, we decided it would be best to wait until after my wedding so that we could have one of our professional shots to display at home.  We didn’t have a lot of photos from the day itself, so choosing one for the canvas wasn’t too hard...

What We Ate at Our Greek Wedding 

It’s only been a couple of weeks, but it feels like an age ago that we got married. I meant to post this last Friday but life and the post wedding blues got in the way.  When it came to food for our wedding, we needed to keep it fairly simple as we had some fussier eaters in attendance, including my mum who generally sticks to British food (think pub...

The Lotus Spa at El Greco, Santorini 

When we booked our accommodation for our week in Santorini at the El Greco hotel, one of the first things I did was contact the hotel to enquire about their on-site spa.  I’m a huge fan of spas lately – we’ve just booked two mini moons in the UK rather than a weekend away in Europe as originally planned, and both have spas – majorly excited!  The head of concierge...

Beauty – My Perfect Summer Nails 

Sun, sea, sand and the perfect exotic cocktail. That’s what I’ve been dreaming about this week. It’s less than two weeks now until we fly out to Santorini and I cannot wait to get away from this poor excuse of a summer we’ve been having here in the UK.  Destination2, who offer tailor made luxury holidays, recently asked me to show them my ‘Perfect Summer Nails’. I love to paint...
