August Adventures: Monthly Round Up

Life Lately: July ended with us attending an absolutely gorgeous wedding in Norfolk, one of the most beautiful and heartfelt weddings that I’ve ever been to…oh and THIS cake….DSC_1214
One of my favourite events this month was the launch of Cook. Love. Share, the book by Micheal Zee, the talented cook and photographer behind sensational Instagram account Symmetry Breakfast.
With unique cocktails, a rainbow cake and catch ups with fellow foodie bloggers, it was a really fab night. The book itself is gorgeous and contains stunning photography and recipes for breakfasts from around the world.

I had lots of fab blogger catch ups this month including Skinny Champagne on the Selfridges roof top with Claire and Emma.

Last week I also had the opportunity to catch up with Mel and Suze over an al fresco lunch in Waterloo. It was great to hear all about their exciting travel plans, with Suze organising a luxurious trip to Thailand.

Also rather excitingly I made the front cover of Influence magazine and was included in an article on top ten up and coming influencers.IMG_9897 (1) IMG_9898
The magazine is a bit of a bible for PR professionals so I was very excited to be chosen.

Restaurants: Chinese food was rather a theme for the restaurants that I visited this month as Mr S popped into Chai Wu in Harrods for lunch, enjoyed a double date with Lauren at Hutong at The Shard and I experienced world class dim sum at A. Wong.DSC_1768
Never one to do things by halves, I also wrote about Lung King Heen, a three Michelin star restaurant in Hong Kong dubbed by many as the world’s best Chinese restaurant. Afternoon Tea was also prevalent on the blog this month as I enjoyed a fantastic Ice Cream Champagne Afternoon tea at The Dorchester with Aftab and an Austrian themed tea at The Delaunay with Lauren.

Travel: August was pretty quiet travel wise but I rounded off the coverage of my big Asian trip with some posts on Hong Kong. As well as the Lung King Heen review, you can read about my stay at The Upper House as well as my list of top ten luxurious things to do. I also wrote a two more personal posts including tips for travelling as a couple and five things that characterise my travel style.
September sees me ramping up the travel again with a trip to the vineyards of Rioja as well as exploring the canals of Venice. I also have four UK staycations including a surprise London stay in collaboration with Small Luxury Hotels. I’m also excited to announce that my Kenya trip is all finalised and we’ll be combining safari adventures with beach time relaxation in Zanzibar. I’ll be publishing my full itinerary in a couple of weeks and I can’t wait to tell you all about it!

Blog Love: Lots of luck to Catherine who will be moving back to Australia and finding a job in Sydney, she’ll be much missed by the blogging gang. I loved reading about Jasiminne’s birthday brunch at one of my New York faves, The Standard Grill, and Emma’s post on Munich has inspired me to add the city to my wish list.

What have you been up to this month? Do you have any exciting travel plans?

Get this – 31st August is the day Malaysia gained independence from the British, and also the day this Malaysian takes a test to prove her loyalty to Blighty…oh the laughs ?
