After a particularly hellish week involving all nighters, house-painting, my other half ending up in hospital for five days, and moving house (phew I cannot even believe all this happened in one week!), Bali welcomed us with the peace and time out we so desperately needed. More or less collapsing on arrival, after a full night’s sleep we dove into the spiritualism, hedonism, and rejuvenation that this island so wonderfully offers. Returning home only made bearable by the launch of Sage and Clare and that we’ll be returning next year to get hitched! x
I think most people would agree that one of the most exciting things about planning a wedding is then turning your attention to the honeymoon! After literally scanning the world map for potential destinations, we’ve decided upon the Greek islands – a place that I’ve been hoping to get to since about the age of 5!
Looking for a mixture of activity and total relaxation, Onar seems to fit the bill for the relaxation component. Located on the island of Andros, in secluded and hard-to-get-to Achla beach, this is the place that will begin our Cyclades island-hopping adventure. Rustic, peaceful, and in the middle of nowhere – we could not wish for anything more…
Now, where should we go from here?
I recently spent a few days down in Cornwall with some pretty amazing chickens, pigs and cows, the world’s best dog and a pretty lovely boyfriend too. I don’t know what it is about that part of the world (south west coast of the UK) that is so special, but the train ride back up to London always makes me want to turn right round again and find myself a sunny patch of Cornish coast to spend my days…

I’m finally off on my Grecian adventure… And so here is part of my holiday pack… But what are your essentials? The things that always make it into your suitcase? The objects you can’t leave home without?
Books from The Book Depository / Beach Towel from Turkey / Piz Buin (best sunscreen) / Net bag from Merci / Leather sandals by the Marni and H&M collaboration / Bikini top by & Other Stories / Bikini Bottoms by J.Crew / Stripe dress by Bonds /
While I don’t want to make you too jealous so soon after my introduction, I’m finally heading to a place that has been on the list for a while!
With a long, hard, northern hemisphere winter nearly over, my boyfriend and I decided it was time for some sun, beach, blue water and a bit more sun. So we booked our tickets to Greece! And just how amazing does that look?!
Anyone care to join?
If it’s a little too far away, I promise to share the holiday snaps.
