How is your summer going? My holiday to Turkey feels like ages ago now and I am busy helping my daughter get ready for starting university at the beginning of September. One of our tasks was to get to know Bath a bit better - having only visited for open days - then her interview - we thought it was time to explore a bit more and help her get her bearings.
So earlier this week we took the train from Reading to Bath Spa, we did a city walking tour around the main sites, we tried the buses, we went shopping, we bought some more essential items she needs for her course, we lunched, we laughed and generally had fun! We stayed at a gorgeous Boutique Hotel, Grays and sat in bed and watched the Love Island final (yeah I know, don't judge me, actually I haven't watched the series but I did watch the final)!
Hi everyone! How did half term go? Or have most of my readers left school holidays behind? My daughter finishes sixth form this summer so although she is now independent we still enjoy time together at half term and school holidays. This week we treated ourselves to some mother and daughter time at Nirvana Spa near Wokingham.
Three years ago I wrote my first blog post with little plan of where I was heading or any real idea of how to blog!! But here I am three years later, still blogging, still learning and most importantly still enjoying it.
So I thought for my anniversary post I'd share some facts about me you might not know:
I'm a bit later than my blogger friends with this one but a couple of weeks ago I was invited to join Gail from Is This Mutton and Anne from Mutton Years Style and I for the Prêt-à-Portea Afternoon Tea at The Berkeley Hotel in Knightsbridge. The afternoon tea is inspired by the world of fashion and the cakes are based on the latest looks from the catwalk. Ideal for a style blogger meet-up.
I made my way into London a bit earlier and indulged in a black cab from Marylebone to New Bond Street so I could spend some time in Victoria's Secret, then I browsed in & Other Stories and one or two other stores before grabbing another cab to the hotel.
It is a stunning hotel with a first class welcome and attentive service. We had a spacious and bright table looking out of the window and were given plenty of time to choose our blend of tea and then later we indulged in a bottle of champagne.
