nationwide eventIf you find that your agendas are empty on Wednesday 18th September, I would high-tail it your nearest Space NK and buy a ticket for their Autumn Beauty Event. Entry is £15, but is redeemable, and if you splash out £150 or more at the event you will be presented with one of the most luxurious goody bags out there. Filled to the brim with £260 worth of niceties, this is worth the trip!

If you’re anything like me, going to bed with a full face of makeup on is not even an option, but if I’ve gotten a little too comfy, or if I want to freshen up pre and post gym – I have been reaching for Alba Botanica’s Hawaiian 3-in-1 Towelletes. View Post

While I was away I was lucky enough to stay in one of my favourite hotelsThe Mark, a perfect little hideaway situated between Madison and Fifth Avenue on 77th Street.

If you follow the behind the scenes coverage of the Met Gala, it will probably look familiar – Anna Wintour, Sienna Miller and Andre Leon Tally are just a few of the guests who get ready for the ball there. The hotel is definitely my choice of city hotels – the decor is just the right side of eclectic, the staff are so polite and courteous, and the location cannot be beaten! When we are there, we always choose a Madison King, the rooms are huge, and  the beds and insanely comfortable! Not only this, but I am just obsessed with their bathrooms.

This hotel is genuinely the only place in the world where a striped marble floor and turquoise cabinets look so chic!

You can see why I can just spend hours in the bathroom – a wonderfully roomy shower.

The baths are ridiculously big – you can splash splash like a child again.

The little black square in the mirror is my guilty pleasure – a television, which means I can indulge in my addiction of Million Dollar Listing all from the comfort of my bubble bath – bliss!

What I love about the hotel is the attention to details, from this adorable Kodak in the mini-bar to the Laduree macarons at turn-down, The Mark is just one of those hotels you want to hole up in forever – handy since apartments are available to buy!

The hotel also includes a great little bar as well as a wonderful restaurant and a very handily placed Frederik Fekkai Salon. As a bonus, the hotel regularly hosts fashion shoots, so you never know who you might bump into!
