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!

If you’re considering a stay in the city, I can’t imagine anywhere else which would be better!

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
