Mother's Day the Joules way

Mother's Day the Joules way

Normally, when writing, I sit at my laptop with a hint of an idea and see where it takes me. I have a start and sometimes an anecdote or two, but it's rare that I have a middle or an ending in mind.

Today, I have so much to tell you about my Mother's Day trip to Watergate Bay Hotel in Cornwall with Joules, and my final sentence is definitely going to be along the lines of it being an incredible experience and how lucky I feel to have been invited, that I don't really know where to start.

It's hard to put what an amazing time we had in to words.

But I need to.

The perfect sleep retreat with Marks & Spencer

The perfect sleep retreat with Marks & Spencer

Call me crazy but when Marks & Spencer first invited me to a sleep retreat at the beautifully quirky Artist Residence Hotel in London, I almost said no. Not because I don't love M&S and not because I wasn't curious to get a glimpse of the uniquely designed rooms that I'd previously only had a chance to swoon over on Instagram, but because I don't find London particularly restful or retreat-like.
