Review: The Maytime Inn Hunting Room Review

Previously I had the pleasure of staying in the Cotswold area in the Maytime Inn.
Below is my initial experience of what I thought.
The review of the food can be found here!

When I arrived in the lovely village of Asthall, the view was very scenic and enticing. The fresh air and sun setting for golden hour was a great start to an enjoyable night. I managed to explore fully that evening by walking down by the river Windrush which flows through the countryside. This beautiful landscape reminded me so much of North Yorkshire moors!

When I arrived I was shown to the ''Hunting room" and given some fresh milk in a cute bottle to make hot drinks.
The 'Hunting Room' is one of the six en-suite bedrooms that the Maytime Inn has. As soon as I entered the room I was greeted with a stag's head which gave a very warm country feel. The interior was very  homely consisting of browns, neutrals and wooden furniture. Complete with luxurious Egyptian cotton linen, the beds were super comfy.
Each room has a HD TV, ipod docking station and HDMI connections for a cosy movie night in.
The room had a luxurious ensuite full of cowshed products which are some of my favourite. If you love it that much you could ask to buy the full bottles to take with you which was great!
The peaceful location made for a great nights sleep.

In the morning a buffet style breakfast with cereal, croissants, other pastries and orange juice were prepared on a table for us. I went for the eggs Benedict and my friend went for eggs, meat and homegrown tomatoes. It was all very delicious and a great bonus having breakfast included with the overnight stay package.

To end the stay off nicely, we visited Blenheim Palace which is one of the 'must visit' tourist attractions around the Oxford area.

I would definitely recommend staying here!

OOTD | Off the Shoulder House of Fraser Black Dress

Dress: Jane Norman*
Shoes: Zara
Bag: H and M  
Sunglasses: Primark

To add to my 'little black dress' collection is this lovely number from Jane Norman via House of Fraser. I remember when Jane Norman bags were once the in thing when I went to high school. I remember telling my mum I needed thee bag. Reminiscing on old times!

This off-the-shoulder dress has a beautiful frilly detail exposing the tops of your shoulders. A very feminine and summery look. It fits super comfortably and enhances your womanly curvature.
I dressed this up with some simple grey heels. Accessory wise I had a clear plastic clutch which I absolutely love! No reasons to loose anything at the bottom of it on an evening out.

I've featured these sunglasses before which I picked up in the mens section of Primark! You would not have guessed eyy?

Have you got your summer LBD's yet?

Summer's Flower Bouquet: Bloom and Wild

June has brought all kinds of weather where I live in the UK. Some sunny days and many rainy days. However some of us celebrated British Flower week from 13th-19th June. I embraced it by ordering a lovely bunch from Bloom and Wild for my mother. Here's what I got her!

I selected 'The Imogen' £26* which was packed the next day and sent out for delivery and received in 2 days. Packed carefully by hand with each flower protected with a netting, I was impressed when they arrived! The great thing is that they are packaged in a slender box which can easily fit through the letterbox. No need to wait around for them to be re-delivered.

The selected bouquet consisted of whites, purples and pinks reminiscent to a midsummer night's sky.

"White Asiatic lilies burst into stars, against the background of midnight purple lisianthus and alstroemeria. Fluffy white clouds of stocks, accompanied by fragrant pistache, enhances these twilight tones."

What a beautiful description!
I did find the flowers got fuller and bloomed the most the next few days which was when I captured these photos below. They sat in a beautiful vase near the fireplace brightening up the indoor space. So much inspiration was taken on board from looking at the Four Walls website. This has inspired me and Summer is going to see some new hues of colour injected into my living space and definitely more flowers!

I cant wait to order more from this brand and try out the other bouquets they have to offer. I will most likely recommend Bloom and Wild. Did you know you can also add extras to the delivery like biscuits, chocolates mists and candles!!

Will you be ordering flowers this summer for someone special?

Father's Day Gift Guide 2016

Father's day is upon us. A great time to splurge on your father/ father like figure. If he's like my dad, just a simple hug and card will do but I thought I would share just a few lovely items that can be gifted!

Father's Day Gift Guide


FitBit One- Most people are on the hype of having a fitbit. Just having this little device attached to you motivates you to be more active not only recording your steps, calories burnt and steps climbed but also your sleeping pattern!

LV Weekend bag- Great for a travelling father to carry everything in one big bag. An investment piece for a well used item don't you think?

Viktor & Rolf Spice Bomb Fragrance- To keep them smelling sweet with a woody musky undertone!!

Soda Stream- For those who love their techy gadgets, this is perfect. Great for personalising drinks and keeping hydrated with fancy drinks.

Diptyque Candle Baies- Men love candles maybe more than women.... so this is great for an office top accessory. Relaxing with a subtle fragrance burning in the background is just what they need.

Thanks to Ocean Finance for letting me splurge a little on my loved ones. Twinning with fitbits are great!!!

I hope you have a lovely weekend with your loved ones!
