After spending two weeks on the trot, working, visiting suppliers, and having minor meltdowns at some of India’s ways, we finally treated ourselves at the amazing Raas Hotel in Jodhpur… While we couldn’t quite afford a night in the peace and tranquility of this hotel, we were more than happy to dine at their restaurant. With stunning views of the Jodhpur fort and a garden that transports you to another time and place, it was well worth it!

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

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’m really not sure how I convinced my other-half to book spur of the moment tickets to Bali but I did! It is the design, architecture, peace, natural beauty, and creativity that continue to draw me there. November could not come fast enough x

Sleeping in a kombi with the back opened up to the sounds and beauty of one of Australia’s best beaches, listening to chilled out tunes, feeling the energy of crashing waves, and swimming with dolphins – I felt nothing but absolute contentment.

After 2 blissful days there, we headed to the beach with a hired surfboard, hoping to muck around and teach ourselves how to surf (or should I say simply stand up!). As I sat there literally thinking that life could not get any better, my boyfriend of fours years pulled a ring from his boardies pocket and asked me to marry him. Oh my goodness! Without a moment of hesitation, I said “Yes!”

Not only did it take me by complete surprise, but I am still beaming from the miracle that a great man wants to spend his life with me. Me?! And I too want to spend mine with him.
