A Little Break At M by Montcalm Shoreditch

Over the weekend Caro, Sarah and I headed up to London for an event with Mumsnet, seen as it would take us each a couple of hours to travel in we thought why not make the most of it and stay overnight. After a little browse online we settled on the M by Montcalm drawn in instantly by the luxuriousness of the rooms, the thought of loosing a couple of hours in the spa and the fab location; in the heart of Shorditch surrounded by lots of amazing bars and restaurants. The building it self is just stunning as I…

Iceland & The #PowerOfFrozen

All foods provided were authentically Tuscan you could really see the lengths they had gone to to keep things traditional and interesting (I even had to translate…

Fireworks & Fun At The Thistle Hotel

Last week I was invited to stay at the Thistle Hotel in Poole for a fun bloggers event celebrating bonfire night and enjoying lots of delicious food. I have been for dinner at the Thistle once before so I knew I would be in for a treat. I arrived to check in at about half 5 – pouring with rain so I wasn’t holding my breath for the fireworks to be going ahead. The room was a good size, with a double bed and a separate sofa bed in the room too. The decor is a little outdated but the room itself was clean,…
