My best friend Clare was up for it. We re-jigged our diaries, and then on Friday, 26 May 2023, we flew from London Gatwick to Palma. My friend Clare and I were still determining what to expect, although we follow The Body Camp on Instagram and had a good old nosy on their website and read the reviews. It’s safe to say that it was an utterly incredible experience on many levels and surpassed our expectations. So here’s my blog on my no-nonsense thoughts on my seven days away.
Beyond the streets of London pays homage to the colourful and monumental moments from the words of graffiti, street, art, hip-hop and punk rock and the artists who immortalised events. From painting trains to social activism, clothes, and soundtracks. The exhibition takes over the entirety of the iconic Saatchi Gallery, examining how this cultural narrative shift is the public’s perception of underground art and culture, leading to a global creative revolution.
My talented friend Taline @katalina.aromas makes all these beautiful scented handmade candles and room scents. She is inspired by nature and hopes lighting these lovely candles will fill your home with a beautiful scent and create beautiful memories. Available on Etsy, please DM her for more information on how to purchase.
January 2023 sees the launch of Richmond’s only farm shop, ‘The Fat Badger Farm Shop’. It’s been launched by the dynamic brother duo Richard and Oliver Gladwin. The Local & Wild farm shop brings the countryside to Richmond, offering you a changing seasonal selection of premium British produce predominantly sourced sustainably from small UK growers and local producers.
If you are in Richmond, I highly recommend visiting Petersham Nurseries @petershamnurseries. It’s about a 15-minute walk along the River Thames. It’s beautiful throughout the year. I took my in-laws, and they loved it as they enjoy gardening and a cuppa with cake!
Tom and I recently had the pleasure of an overnight stay at an exquisite, ultra-boutique hotel in London’s Marylebone: Henry’s Townhouse. Situated in one of London’s most sought-after postcodes on Upper Berkeley Street, it’s about a five-minute walk from Marble Arch station, tucked behind the hustle and bustle of Oxford Street.
I have an utterly delightful treat to tell you about.
