Castle Ashby has to be one of the prettiest places I’ve visited! It’s just so peaceful. The plants and pond glittering as streams of sunlight pour through the glass.

Castle Ashby has to be one of the prettiest places I’ve visited! It’s just so peaceful. The plants and pond glittering as streams of sunlight pour through the glass. I’d love to come back when autumn fully hits and it’s raining and I can cosy up in a corner with a good book and steaming cup of tea. If you’re ever travelling through Northampton, I’d definitely recommend a quick pit stop. Probably not at the weekend though as I’m sure it’s full of screaming kids which I just can’t cope with. 🤦🏻‍♀️ I’m heading to Sheffield this weekend just for the day so if you know of any coffee shops for me to explore, please do let me know! P.S that red thing in the corner of the photo is one of the biggest goldfish I’ve ever seen! ✨🍂 #castleashby

I’ve always always had oily skin and, whilst it’s nice to tell yourself you’ll look great at 60 because of it, it’s not so great when you’re meeting friends and you catch a glimpse of yourself with a forehead brighter than your future. We’re exploring the countryside around @overstoneparkltd and the fallen leaves are already making it feel like autumn! Hence my candles are out in full force and yes, I’m wearing my favourite pair of cosy socks. I switched up my usual toiletries for @caudalie and decided to try their new Vinopure range. For £12.50 you can grab this 15 day “Discovery Box” on the Caudalie website which helps to reduce blemishes and shine. I’ve been using it whilst away and I genuinely loved the skin perfecting serum so much that I just ordered a full sized bottle. Perfect autumn skin, come at me please! #VinopureSolution #CleanBeauty #ad

We continued South and found this gem of a village. The lady who lives next door to The Old Post Office recommended The Castle pub for lunch, although she’s never been in because her French husband always cooks for her (lucky for some!) If you go, try the fish and chips. And then walk down past the beautifully crooked houses to the river at the bottom. This is where a series of Downton Abby was filmed! 😍 #visitengland

Amelie worked in a pretty café around here. Do you know who I mean? The girl from one of my favourite films ever. This was the day I strolled along cobblestone streets, bought croissants and ate them whilst perusing shop windows, sat in lace curtained bistros and read or wrote whilst the waiter chalked the plat du jour on the board outside. Does anyone else have that one place that they’ve visited and can’t wait to return to? ✨ Mine has to be Paris ❤️ #parisjetaime

Candle lit cold shower and an evening of skincare pampering and travel research. How cute is my new travel bottle from @caudalie?

Candle lit cold shower and an evening of skincare pampering and travel research. How cute is my new travel bottle from @caudalie? They’re offering a free eco-friendly summer water bottle when you buy any two products from the Vinosource range! I picked up a few bits and bobs for my skin because as much as I loved spending all day on a beach and having my skin sun kissed and bronze it’s super dehydrating! I probably shouldn’t have used coconut oil instead of sun cream! I love the fact that all the products are natural and feel like a dream on your skin. Anyway, if you need me, this is where I’ll be- in bed with my travel mag and lathered in #caudalie - if you fancy it, just use code BOTTLE2018 when you’re checking out. Have a gorgeous evening! ✨ #naturalhydration #ad

Spent the morning reading a book that I bought in Paris. Does anywhere do cafés quite like Europe? @lesdeuxmagots is one of my favourites. If anyone is heading to Paris, you have to pop in for an espresso or sit out in the wicker-lined terrace and people watch would be rude not to ️ Happy Friday!

Pretty latte art, a good book and chocolate. Is there a more perfect combo? I know there’s loads of focus on getting your body ready for summer etc but seriously, a little bit of what you fancy does you good. @galaxyuk have launched their “30 days of pleasure” campaign where each day you pick something that makes you happy and do it! For me it’s definitely got to be finding a quiet corner in a coffee shop, ordering a strong latte and then leafing through an old book for a hours. One hour might turn into three but who’s counting anyway? If my life was measured in cups of coffee, I’d live forever. And don’t worry - this chocolate bar isn’t all for me- I did share 😂🤦🏻‍♀️🍫☕️ #choosepleasure #ad

Be right back- just checking out for a Greek island summer. Eating honey and yoghurt for breakfast overlooking a sea of endless blue and then strolls on the beach at sunset. I’m just loving this life! See you in a few days, England. Hope everyone had a fab weekend! Be right back- just checking out for a Greek island summer.

Look how happy my sister is that @gbkburgers are now selling their patties in Waitrose and Waitrose online! We decided to have a girls night in together and sit out in the sunshine with a BBQ. We popped along to Waitrose to pick up some patties and decided to give these a try. They’re made with 99% beef and were absolutely delicious. I grabbed some halloumi and whilst it was all sizzling away on the BBQ we prepped the burger buns and added a dollop of #GBKathome smoked chilli mayo and relish. So so good. Anyone coming round for burgers? #ad
