A Weekend Away In Holkham, Norfolk

Ready for a LOT of pretty photos? Of a VERY pretty place?!

Earlier this year Oli and I enjoyed a spring weekend away in Holkham, Norfolk. Holkham is a huge expansive estate, spanning 6,100 hectres.

Amongst the estate is the spectacular Holkham Hall, a deer park, multiple farms, The Victoria Inn, Holkham lodges (the most unique of which – The Triumphal Arch – we stayed in), as well as cafés, gardens and grounds visitors can enjoy. 

In other words, whether you’re staying for a weekend or popping in for a few hours, you’ll be spoilt for choice as to what to do!

Here’s what we got up to during our weekend in Norfolk. If you’re looking for a UK weekend away, I can’t recommend having this on on your radar enough!

PLUS, if you’re on the hunt for a unique wedding venue, you mayyy want to consider this one. Take a peek to see . . .

3 Days In Fès, Morocco – A Sunshine Escape 3 Hours From London

I am so excited to share my guide to Fès with you!

This breathtaking city is, as Condé Nast Traveller shares, “one of the best-preserved medieval cities in the world”.

With every step you truly feel like you are re-living some kind of magic from eras gone by.

I’ve been wanting to visit Morocco for years, and my first trip outlived my (already high) expectations.

Here’s what I got up to over three days in Fès . . .

Winchester Travel Guide: The Most Stylish Independents In The City

It’s here! My comprehensive guide to the most stylish spots in Winchester.

I can’t believe I haven’t compiled this before! Winchester was my home town for many years, and I still visit weekly. There are so many AMAZING independents to visit, and I’ve done my best to roundup my favourites. Each and every one of these is worth a visit, you are going to have so much fun pottering around, caffeinating and loading up your shopping bags!

PLUS if you’re thinking of visiting soon, Winchester Fashion Week is running between April 29th and May 4th and has a whole host of events going on.

Enjoy perusing! I’d love to hear if you’ve got any other Winchester independents you’d recommend, and if you’re planning a visit soon!

Recapping The Philips Steam Sanctuary At Lime Wood Hotel

What a way to kick-start the summer! If you follow me on Instagram you’ll have seen that Ella and I recently hosted an incredible retreat with Philips, at the beautiful Lime Wood Hotel in the New Forest.

The purpose of our retreat was to bring together a group of our favourite blogging girls, to get to know the new Philips Steam&Go Plus handheld garment steamer. Which as you know, I’m already a huge fan of.

(I’ve literally used nothing else to prep or refresh my clothes since getting it!)

What ensued, over our 24 hours together, was a truly magical retreat. It was filled with LOTS of chat about clothes (what else?!), how to care for them, and a dialogue around mindfulness and how we can all look after ourselves better.

It was a trip I’ll never forget, and I’m so excited to relive it with you on the blog today . . .

5 Ways To Find Moments of ‘Me Time’ In A Busy Schedule

Does your head hit the pillow at the end of the day, only for you to realise that you’ve not taken a moment for yourself ALL day?

I’ve definitely been through seasons when this is the case!

It’s all too easy to sail through your routine, going through the movements of your commute, concentrating hard at work, before back to back Netflix episodes and then bed.

But fear not! I’m here to help you to find those slots of ‘me time’ even in the most packed of schedules.

As part of my work with Olivia Burton this year, I’m honouring Olivia Burton’s new Semi Precious collection – which is STUNNING – by sharing my tips for finding moments of ‘me time’ with you . . .

Disconnect to Reconnect – Why It’s Important To Enjoy A Season Of Rest

Is your inbox full of out of office replies? Perhaps now is the time to take your own season of rest.

Whether you disconnect for a couple of days, a week or a month, luxuriate in the opportunity to recharge your batteries fully.

Allow your mind to wander, to dream and to explore your inspirations.

As I hang up my own keyboard for a few weeks – to go on holiday with my family – I’m sharing why ‘disconnecting’ can be so beneficial in every facet of life . . .
