Oh my goodness how are we suddenly in December?! It’s been a while since I’ve posted and time has flown by in a flurry of wedding planning and snow (that unfortunately didn’t stick!) but I’m returning to the blog with a festive and indulgent spa post! I was recently lucky enough to be invited along… Continue reading Spa In The City With Bristol Harbour Hotel
Well it’s officially autumn and the darker evenings are well and truly drawing in! I can officially say I have indulged in hot chocolate (with added marshmallows of course!), put the heating on for the first time, lit the candles and succumbed to full on cosiness with blankets and the winter duvet! As much as… Continue reading Autumn Cosiness And Bristol In A Box Lightboxes
I feel as though I’ve blinked and Autumn is upon us all of a sudden! It’s as though we went from sunshine and summer dresses to drizzle, crisp leaves and tights with boots within a week! Whilst these seasonal changes have been taking place it’s been back-to-school for me along with wedding planning firmly making… Continue reading Wedding Planning Update And Floral Styling With ‘The Wild Bluebell’
So Summer is finally here…but I’m not sure the weather got the memo! Is it just me or when you think of the British summer do you envisage hot, sunny days sipping Pimm’s by the seaside? Strawberries and cream in the garden with Wimbledon on in the background? Sadly more recently it’s been a case… Continue reading Classic Style With A Contemporary Twist At Jack Wills

This is exactly what happened to Matt Horan’s (the inventor of Rollasole) girlfriend. After one too many times of providing her with the obligatory piggy back ride home (The Canadian… Continue reading Roll Up, Roll Up for Rollasole!
Anyone who has cast their eye over my Instagram page (@the.blonde.blog dontcha know) will probably have been able to pick up on the vibe that I’m a girl who enjoy a tipple of gin now and again! My previous post featuring The Mall Clifton Village Launch started the new Instagram hashtag #stylemygin after I was inspired by the… Continue reading Gin Festival Bristol 2017
Hello May! We’re one month closer to summer and in Bristol that can only mean one thing – festivals! Around this time last year I was taking in the delights of The Foodies Festival (and on an early date with The Canadian…trying to remain cool, calm and collected whilst sipping Pimm’s and avoiding dropping ice… Continue reading Bristol Foodies Festival 12th – 14th May – Giveaway!
Last weekend I went along to the Easter Festival at the Bristol Botanic Gardens. Having never visited (shameful I know after living here for 6 years now…) in truth I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect! Surely a fairly small, urban city such as Bristol wouldn’t have all that much to offer in the way… Continue reading Beauty At The Bristol Botanic Gardens
The sun was shining, it was ‘pop a cardigan on’ weather and I was lucky enough to be part of a group of Bristol Bloggers invited to the launch of the revamped pub The Mall in Clifton Village – perfect! I’ve always loved The Mall, being situated close to my work, within the pretty little… Continue reading The Mall Clifton Village Launch
