Travel | Scandi cabin in Denmark…

This past half term, we took the kids to Denmark, for an extra special treat a visit to Legoland Billund. More on that in another post.  Our stay for two nights was a little wooden cabin, about half an hour from Billund. I found it on Airbnb, and it was such a little gem of a find, I thought I’d share it with you, in case you fancy a bit of rural Denmark, and extend your trip from Copenhagen. Lou

Travel | Soho Farmhouse…

Have you ever been away somewhere and have fallen head over heels in love, that you never want to leave.  Yup?  I had that experience at Soho Farmhouse.  Two nights in a luxury log cabin… with the largest bed I’ve ever slept in and a toasty log burner.  It was a blissful kid free couple of days.

Travel | Visiting the AAA coffee farm in Costa Rica with Nespresso…

Sitting down to a coffee in the morning is one of my most favourite simple pleasures and we all can relate to.  The whole ritual around it is so satisfying; from choosing your favourite mug, the coffee style (black, with milk or plant based milk),  in whatever method you choose to make it, it is something we all look forward to every single day. But, how many of us actually think about what goes into making our morning cup of

Travel | A winter Cornish adventure with Beachspoke…

The weekend before Christmas we travelled southwards to St Ives, Cornwall… for some fresh air and enjoy St Ives in winter.  I personally prefer Cornwall in winter, the beaches are empty, windswept and wild. Walks across the headland followed by good food in a local pub by the fire, makes Cornwall the best place to escape the mayhem of the Christmas season.

Travel | A Nordic Feast at the Southbank…

Shortly after Lou returned from Sweden, we took a trip to the Southbank centre, and enjoyed a Nordic Feast.  The food was cooked on open fires, and prepared with authentic regional ingredients.  Scandinavian chefs were joined by London chefs who had been on a foreign exchange-style visit to learn new skills, and discover a new ethos.  The expansive canvas tent was dimly lit, and there were two gloriously large fire pits dominating the space.

Travel // Artist Residence, Oxfordshire…

Last Friday, we left the boys with their Grandparents and travelled to the Cotswolds for an overnight treat at the newly opened Artist Residence hotel.  Passing through honey coloured villages in the traditional Cotswold stone we reached the village of South Leigh, Oxfordshire. The hotel is small and cosy, situated in a thatched country pub.  With only 5 rooms in total, you really feel like you are hiding away from the world at a country retreat.  Surrounded by countryside for

Travel // Sweden part 2, Lund and the Skissernas Museum…

I’ve finally found time to edit some more of my Swedish adventure.  In particular focusing on the City of Lund and the Skissernas Museum.  Lund is situated about 30 minutes drive North from Malmo.  It is a large University town and reminded me very much of Oxford, with it’s grand buildings, and bicycling students flocking the streets. On our little tour, Lund was our second overnight stop, staying at the aptly named The Grand Hotel.  Very Wes Anderson-esque in style,

Travel // Sweden Part 1, Wanas Hotel and Sculpture Park…

Last month, I visited Skåne in southern Sweden along with a small group of other influencers – Sarah Akwisombe, Abi of These Four Walls and Kimberly of Swoon Worthy. The trip was hosted by Visit Sweden and Visit Skåne, with the aim to share the design aspects of this little discovered region of Sweden. I knew I would love Sweden, but I hadn’t expected to fall in love with it.  Especially Wanås Estate (pronounced Vanoos).  I almost sobbed when it was time to leave this wonderful place.  A
