With summer in full swing, there's nothing I look forward to more than taking a weekend trip to the shore. A two-day getaway is the perfect way to recoup and recharge after a hectic workweek! If you're planning your own seaside escape, kick travel stress to the curb with a well-packed travel...

So the hotel gets an amazing five stars from me, I have to admit it wasn't the best hotel in Leeds or the cheapest and technically it is three star in hotel circles, but for a weekend away shopping and exploring Leeds it was perfect. The room was a good size, I even got rubber ducks in the...

This was a weekend to remember and Points Cottage is most definitely a property I would recommend to anyone in search of a weekend delight away from the crazy town we call London. Fire up the 4x4, pack a case of wine and some culinary delights and lose yourself in the freshest of air with a...

I'm really looking forward to taking a couple of days to chill out in the glorious sunshine and finally read something for pleasure rather than for university (I'm finally going to start Teenage: The Creation of Youth by Jon Savage -which I posted about a while ago in relation to it's...

Alas I had to walk away empty handed, but I could have blown more than a few months rent in Westfield Sydney – from the looks of all the shoppers, a few people were! Head off to lunch! @sassybella in the Strand Arcade is 1 of Sydney's best Italian restaurants Pendolino! U must try the...

It was perhaps the most charming discovery for a combination of lounging, food and atmosphere (and also a hotel which I will have to enjoy on another weekend in Woodstock). The hotel itself is one of the oldest coaching inns of old England. It is over 600 years old and if those walls could...

I thought there would be no way D would agree to a 10-hour road trip away from the kids for three nights. Know what? He did. Squeal!!! We waited until the car trip THERE to make our hotel reservation that night (and the evening before to book the weekend condo). It you know me, that's not...

gif Look of the Day: Ducal city weekend bolthole When travelling around Italy being chic is always a must. Not to look out of place with the elegant townsfolk of the magnificent ducal cities of Mantua and Ferrara, here's a suggestion on what to wear. A weekend away is about relaxing,...

Belles and I are away in Leeds this weekend. I have business and family matters at hand and its only 45 minutes from home. I do love Leeds and I miss my homeland. I miss the strong accent I once had (which rears itself when in the company of my yorkshire-lass friends). But I'm back and tonight...

We had planned an indulgent weekend away in the Philippines as our first escape from Hong Kong since we moved here. My excitement was uncontainable at the thought of sneaking out of the cold, grey city and reclining on a beach with nothing to distract me apart from the gentle noise of the...
