When in Rome…

I’ve just got back from a beautiful wedding in Rome (a follow-up Roman wedding-related blog post to follow…). I’ve been to Rome before, and therefore have already explored the key tourist attractions and the (lengthy, but amazing) tours. This time round, it was fabulous to just enjoy a few chilled days walking around in the glorious Italian sunshine, seeing the sights again (from the outside), consume plenty of local wine, slightly dent the credit card in Prada and Michael Kors on Via Condotti and eat plenty of amazing food.

I am turning in to a ball of mozzarella, wrapped in parma ham and topped with burrata because I’ve eaten so much of it.

Keeping things simple and visual, this blog post is pretty much text-free (partly due to immense tiredness and brain-fail from a very delayed and late flight home last night). Here’s a small selection of my photos from my strolls around the stunning Eternal City…

An Ibiza Love Affair

We all have many ‘happy places’ in life, right? Travelling to near and far places, experiencing new cultures, immersing in to vast amounts of history and exploring beautiful cities and paradises….And anywhere that tops up a healthy glow is a bonus in my book – wearing SPF30 of course…(okay maybe I’ll drop to SPF15 on my legs when they are sun-kissed).

Ibiza

#nofilter: Ibiza paradise

But what is it about Ibiza that keeps us going back year after year? Whether you’re single or in a relationship, a ‘raver’ or a ‘yoga-bunny’, a dancer or chillaxer – whatever your purpose, there’s so many of us in love with the tiny White Isle…

I’m not denying there are many who enjoy entering a certain Ibiza escapism and wilderness, full of debauchery and memories either best forgotten (if they haven’t already been forgotten before the flight home) but I love that I can immerse in to a world where those in their teens and early twenties are in the minority and where it’s more than acceptable to wear flip flops all day and night (leaving the Louboutin’s at home) and a messy up-do is more fitting than a perfectly groomed GHD curl…

Dreaming…

SORRY for my radio silence! Please forgive me for having some time out and enjoying myself!

This last month has been pretty aces – getting lots of sun, enjoying some R&R and getting a stack load of future blog content.

After a slightly challenging year, I don’t need to explain why “time out” is good for us, why it’s needed every so often and how I’m slowly learning how important it is to look after number one and to enjoy the things one most enjoys in life – which for me is seeing the world, as well as spending time and having LOLs with some amazing people! I have the best friends!

My little Muddy-on-Sea!

Photo 06-04-2015 11 30 43A South-East-Essex born’s Bank Holiday weekend wouldn’t be complete without a trip to Old Leigh (no matter the weather!).

I love my hometown of Leigh-on-Sea – renowned for its cockle sheds, pubs with most of the seating outside, cobbled streets, a muddy river Thames, fishing boats, a mix of restaurants, bars and tea shops, boutique shops and the smell of fresh seaside air!

I currently live on the Essex/East London border, which does make daily commuting to London quicker, but I am often back in the Southend-on-Sea vicinity (seeing as that’s where most of my friends and family reside).

There’s something so wonderful about a little day trip to my seaside hometown at this time of year – and for the rest of the spring and summer months….

Host an event at Ham Yard!

Here in London we are spoilt with the wide variety of event spaces available. However, when organising an offsite boardroom-style meeting, finding the right venue can sometimes be the hardest task because so many options (new and old) quickly become tired from sudden bursts of media/fashion/beauty industry over-usage.

From my point of view (with my creative marketing hat on), you want a new and inspiring location with lots of character – especially when your delegates are a mix of media/creative/marketing roles.
