Christmas starts in Switzerland….

Comments Off on Christmas starts in Switzerland…. 55Factory, Fault magazine, my words, spa, travel

I was lucky enough to be invited on a Press Trip to Switzerland this week to cover the Realisme: La symphonie des contraires exhibition at the extremely impressive Foundation Pierre Arnaud gallery in Crans Montana in the Alps which is well worth the journey. I’d advise at least three nights to make the most of the resort!

It also meant I got to spend some time larking about in the snow and AMAZING spa at our five star hotel, The Crans Amabassador www.cransambassador.ch with my fashion hubbie Christopher Sims from 55Factory, and some other international journalists. Tough life!

As we all know the real Santa needs snow, so now I can officially declare Christmas open….

Watch this space for review.

I really enjoyed styling this rock n roll bridal shoot for Hitched magazine with photographer Natalie J Watts- even if we did get chased down the street by lots of tourists!!

I took my inspiration from Courtney Love. Traditional it is not!!!

Sounds tempting…

Comments Off on Sounds tempting… fashion, news, spa, style, travel

Would I like to go on a ‘Style Me Gorgeous’ girly weekend package at a delightfully quaint village in Norfolk….? Hmmmm let me think about that for a moment. Erm yes please!

What a great idea to get away for three nights to the beautiful Norfolk coast with up to nine mates and indulge at the Scandi chic Barsham Barns. Only two hours away from London, it’s not too far to go to be pampered, and the deal includes wine tasting and accomodation. Fashion expert Claire Bunton is also on hand for style advice and consultations. Or you can just chill by the log fire or in the jacuzzi.

With a quirky village setting, there is plenty to explore around the area, and it seems the ideal place to go for a post Christmas retreat!

Available on the 30th January and the 13th March, check out
