Beauty Triumphs with Braun…

Braun Skin Spa

beauty must havesI’m super excited to be heading down to London next Friday for a bit of an indulgent treat with my friends at Braun and being part of their #Braunmetime pamper event.  With all the changes at MBHQ right now it’s become pretty important to look after myself and make sure I am firing on all cylinders.

So I admit I’ve stepped up my beauty regime to not only look my best for prospective suitors but also because at this time of year it’s easy to slip into bad habits and forget to look after and nourish ourselves and our bodies.

Museums and Galleries in Bath


Days Out BathBath is well known for its culture and history, and the 17 museums and galleries in the city are testament to that. Whether you are interested in fashion, or prefer an astronomical theme, there is something for everyone to enjoy in Bath. The range of central hotels in Bath (for example this one just near the Roman Baths) means it’s easy to visit the city and stay within easy reach of all the top attractions.

The Holburne Museum

The Holburne Museum was Bath’s first public art gallery and is housed in a beautiful grade I listed building, which was extensively refurbished in 2011. The museum was originally founded around the art collection of Sir William Holburne. It boasts an impressive assemblage of over 4,000 articles, including an eclectic mix of portraits, Chinese porcelain, and artefacts from the Roman era to name just a few. In 1955, William Holburne’s collection was greatly enhanced by the acquisition of work by Gainsborough, Turner and Stubbs.  The museum offers a wide array of things to explore and enjoy, and to top it off there is a delightful garden café that opens out into the museum’s park, serving delicious lunches, cakes and other refreshments.

Peter Pan The Never Ending Story


Peter Pan The Neverending StoryThere is something about Peter Pan as a story, for me it evokes such strong memories of childhood – namely that my grandmother bought me a beautiful story book that was personalised to me so that I was part of the story.  There was no Wendy it was me and Peter on a journey around Neverland.  I still have this book to this day and now that she’s no longer with me I treasure it dearly.  I think also as a grownup part of us always wishes to be the big kid and find our own Neverland to disappear to.  So I am delighted and already rather over excited to be going to Peter Pan The Never Ending Story with Miss Roo at the NIA Birmingham as she too loves Peter Pan and Tinkerbell just as much as I do.
