Life Lately: I’m feeling high on life at the moment! We’ve had some great news recently, our holiday was wonderful and now spring is in the air!! Another month has simply flown by and it’s time for another round up!
I visited some amazing restaurants this month including:
A seafood banquet at J Sheekey.
A tequila-fuelled feast at Peyotito.
And Spring, a restaurant that’s both beautiful and serves incredible food.
It’s one of those days when you can’t stop smiling! Spring is finally in the air, the sky is blue and I’ve just had the most amazing lunch with a group of lovely bloggers! I loved everything about the appropriately named @spring_ldn , not only was the food great, this place is serious #interiorgoals
Last night I headed to the Montague hotel for dinner with the South African Tourist board. It’s my favourite country so I’m really hoping to go back, meanwhile I’ll just enjoy these fab leopard print cocktails from the hotel!
I also popped to luxury country house hotel Coworth Park for a chocolate afternoon tea and tried the tasting menu at Sexy Fish that same evening – reviews of both to come.
I managed to squeeze three countries into the month of March. I discovered Turin on a road trip with Ford cars and met some wonderful people along the way!
We stayed in the three beautiful hotels in Dubai, each very different:
The One&Only Royal Mirage was a vast hotel with a kilometre of beach!
The Four Seasons Hotel Dubai International Financial Centre is a city-chic boutique hotel.
The Four Seasons Resort Dubai at Jumeirah Beach was a gorgeous beach-front property with incredible personal service.
If you were following my trip on Instagram and Instagram Stories you’ll see that I stayed in two incredible properties in the Maldives.
Gili Lankanfushi is an eco-friendly rustic luxury hotel:
And über luxury resort Velaa which couldn’t have been more different.
My Maldives posts start next week and I simply cannot wait to tell you about everything we got up to at these two hotels.
Easter is chocolate time right? And I highly recommend getting your eggs from Pierre Marcolini Haute Chocolaterie.
For something a little different the master of chocolate has made chocolate eggs into Japanese dolls. My Hand Fan Doll came with 16 miniature eggs like pearls in the base and I also got three drawers full of macarons! You should have seen the look on my nephew’s face when I gave him this!
We took my mum to one of new local faves, Hai Cenato for Mother’s Day, and she absolutely loved it! I also contributed to a collective ebook with other bloggers celebrating our mum’s on mother’s day. As part of this project, I’m attending an event with Raymond Blanc and the Chelsea Flower Show on the 27th May. If you want to come to I have a 10% discount code for my readers. Just quote MOTHER10.
One of the highlights of my month was our trip on the Belmond British Pullman Train a huge tick off the bucket list for me!
And what does the future hold? This weekend I’m off on a very special trip, I’ll be celebrating Aftab’s birthday with Emma and Binny…but shh….don’t tell him…it’s a surprise. All will be revealed on Sunday! I’ve got no other big travel plans for April, though on Wednesday I will be heading to airport – follow me on Instagram Stories to find out why. I’ve just booked a few exciting UK staycations, including going away with my family for Easter. We haven’t had a family holiday in years so I can’t wait!!
What’s your news?
