…Ok, it wasn’t quite the “middle” of the week, but as far as i’m concerned and the calendar for that matter, a Thursday-Friday is not the conventional weekend. Long-story-short; I went away for a couple of days on a “spa weekend”- on a weekday! It wasn’t the the Maldives, but it most definitely was a well deserved and much needed break away. Not only was the spa relaxing, but it was in Malvern. As in; out of London! Away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Away from the capital smog and into some fresh country air. Admittedly, the countryside isn’t always my first choice. Hell, who am I kidding, its never my second or third choice either, nevertheless it was wonderful and like I said; a well deserved and much needed break away!
Malvern, Malvern, Malvern…A spa town up north; surrounded by countryside and known for the Malvern Hills; it was the perfect little get away- before the big get away [Watch this space]. Even with 2 (and some) hours on the motorway, it was worth it.
Anyways, as I was saying it was a delight. I mean you simply can not go wrong with an indoor/outdoor heated pool, thermo power jets, a much needed classic steam room, 2 types of saunas and a weird salt room. Oh and lets not forget the 4 types of cold showers (one to which involved a bucket) and ice falling from the ceiling into an elevated ceramic bowl just for when it gets too hot and a little overbearing (i’m not complaining). The deck chairs, sun rays and natural light coming through the large glass windows made it all the more relaxing and stress free. Imagine living in a swimsuit, robe and slippers all day and having no where to go but the “facilities”. Like I said, it was the perfect little get away! And better yet- the food wasn’t half bad either! FineDining, i’ll say! We had dinner for two and breakfast the following morning-and I have to say I was impressed Malvern! It was posh plates of food; complete with perfect presentation; plus it tasted pretty decent.
Take me back any day, please and thank you!

Sometimes its ok to let go and give in to your heart’s desire. Even if it is your materialist heart’s desire. Life is too short, so if you really want something, go after it – even if it is Louboutins, Manolos, Sophia Websters or Rockstud Valentinos!
After all, if you can’t treat yourself, who can? –Thats my moto anyway!
As much as “I heart NY”, may heart also belongs in a designer bag. Currently on a cheeky trip to New York, I came across these BEAUTIES, in the city’s most luxurious shopping district; Madison Avenue and Fifth Avenue! With block after block of designer flagships, I knew I was in the right place. Now in this concrete jungle, I’m just waiting for ” my dreams to comes true” so I can purchase a bag or five!
All i want in my life is a Chanel bag, just a little one. Is that too much to ask for. As of tomorrow I will be New York bound, fingers cross i find me a bargain-good enough not to pass up. #letsgoshopping
Ive been waiting for you
Finally mines! -Rose Gold Michael Kors Watch.
The saying “if its meant to be, it will be” couldn’t be more right. Ever since, I don’t know how long (probably because i didn’t have a watch to tell the time- lmao), I’ve been waiting for my watch. I mean how long is a girl supposed to wait for such a beauty, that is a Michael Kors; and its rose gold.Nevertheless I am forever grateful (thanks milz) and thank God for having such fantastic friends; who just so happen to have perks at work.
From treating myself over summer, to what could have been a 21st birthday present to myself, or maybe even a belated one, ended up as a “to me, from me” Christmas pressy. And I love it. Although I may have waited a while, it was all worth it. I’m working on being a patient girl because evidently, “Good things come to those who wait!”
At the very start I decided i wanted a Marc Jacobs watch and set my heart on a rose gold one, then as collections came and went, I fell for the Michael Kors. Admittedly I was never keen on the Kors watches, because everybody had one and im just not that kind of girl. But then my Marc never showed again and the new Michael Kors collection graced us with its presence, so i went for it. Before i missed the opportunity again. Even though it may be common brand, this particular one is mine. And its perfect; the watch face it small enough, there are a few numbers so i don’t get too confused (hehe), its pretty, its glamorous, its rose gold and last but not least, it has just the right amount of ‘bling’ to be fabulous and not too over done. What do you think?
MK or Mj? what would you have chosen?
