The Mark Hotel

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!

Travelling always makes me feel completely gross – the cabin pressure and the sitting around for hours really do nothing for my skin, and when I finally get to wherever I’m going I’m ready to scrub my face off.  View Post

For me, traveling is always the time to revert to old faithfuls and try out new brands and products – and Cargo’s Jet Lag Concealer falls into the latter category. View Post

J.Crew McAlister Boots

When I was away I mostly did ‘basics shopping’ which consisted of a batch of new J.Crew cashmere sweaters, some jeans and a handful of cute transition pieces to wear between now and the full hit of winter. One of my favourite buys were these J.Crew McAlister boots in black suede. View Post
