There are a few changes to SilverSpoon afoot… Getting Personal… I think as bloggers, we’re constantly rethinking our blogs…how do you want it to be and where do you want it to go.

Rainbow food at LIMA Floral

I’ve never been to South America but I imagine it to be a continent alive with shapes and colour: the bright green of the Amazon, the expansive blue of Lake Titicaca and the vibrant kaleidoscopic colours of the carnival!

A Luxurious Stay at the Belgraves Hotel

Mr Silver has a lot of patience really…my addiction to luxury and boutique hotels can take over our lives a bit. When we’re on holiday I’m always keen to check out all the other hotels in the surrounding area.
