When in Rhodes!

Hi Guys,

As you may have already seen, I recently went to Rhodes for a week vacation to relax and soak up some sun!

Rhodes is absolutely beautiful, and it is extremely hot even in September, which was a delightful change from the cold, rainy U.K.

I stayed in the Elysium, 5* Spa and Resort on the Kallithea side of the island. It boasts it’s own private beach, with crystal clear water, where I snorkled for fishes with my boyfriend! It had amazing views of the ocean and had spectacular sunsets every day, which we admired whilst eating outside at their restaurant.

We spent most of the days by the poolside or by the sea – sunbathing and relaxing whilst ensuring we didn’t get sunburnt!

As I love archaeology and history, we took a day trip to Rhodes’ Old Town to their Archaeology Museum and the Palace of the Grand Masters – which are spectacular sights to see!

I also sneaked in a trip to the local Sephora where I had a mini Tony Moly haul!

I’m looking forward to my next mini-break in October, where I will be staying in a manor in the Cotswold!

 

Mini Break in Bath, UK!

As a few of you may have seen on my social media accounts, I was able to take a mini break in the historic city of Bath. I stayed at the No. 15 Great Pulteney hotel in the Henrietta Junior Suite that provided excellent views over Henrietta Park. The hotel was lovely- it’s a newly opened, boutique 5* hotel situated inside the magnificent Bath Spa area of the city. Our Junior Suite boastedΒ a king sized bed and a massive TV with Sky Digital inclusive, which appeased the film lover in me, as well as a built in Dyson Supersonic hairdryer. Our floor had a fully stocked larder which was brimming with complementary bottled drinks, ice cream, snacks and chocolate – it was incredible.

We took a walk around Bath which was absolutely stunning. We were incredibly lucky that we managed to go at a time where it wasn’t that cold for the UK in March, which was a lovely surprise. We made sure to visit theΒ Bath Abbey and the Roman Baths, as I am a bit of a history and archaeology nerd…

The Roman Baths were so beautiful, and it was incredibly interesting learning about the history of the springs that filled them with the so called “healing water”. Β We got the chance to drink some of it at the end of the museum – surprisingly the water was warm and it was not nice at all…

After spending the day at the Roman Baths we decided to walk around the Bath Spa shopping area – to which in my true fashion I found their Lush shop. After splurging out on a few new bath bombs – Dragon Egg and Golden Egg – I headed back to our hotel to give the bath tub a go.

A Summer in Paris!

As a few of you know, I was able to spend part of my summer living it upΒ in sunny Paris! During my stay I did the typical touristy things likeΒ hitting up Disneyland Paris and the Eiffel Tower – but managed to do a few other things during my visit.

I’ve been to Paris a lot in my lifetime, but it was amazing to visit when I’ve got a new appreciation of city life. I enjoyed using the Metro and train services – something that I never have done before! It was fun buying a Mobilis ticket, which allowed me unlimited travel on all services, I took full advantage of this and took the cable car down from the Sacre Coeur!

I was able to hit up so many tourist spots in one day from my travel pass, zipping all over the city and clocking up some cardio in between! Climbing up the Eiffel Tower was some cardio indeed that I felt warranted a chocolatey Cornetto at the top as a reward…

I enjoyed shopping along the Champs-Γ‰lysΓ©es and spending all of my money on the first day in Sephora buying a haul of new beauty goodies, but “When in Paris!” they say…
