Last weekend we visited Helsett Farmhouse for a late Christmas with my family. It seems to be becoming a little bit of a tradition to come here in late January. It is beautiful and so cosy with a large red aga to keep warm by. Cornish cream teas with home-made cream from the farm, drinking wine and baking Camembert, it is a wonderful getaway from Bristol life.
Life is slow in Cornwall and getting some fresh sea is just what we all needed!
My Morland slipperswere perfect for the weekend, the sheepskin is such good quality and kept my feet toasty warm. They are probably the most luxurious slippers I have ever owned!

Last weekend Paul and I headed to the Holland House Hotel and Spa. We had a wonderfully refreshing walk through Queens Square in the morning.
When we arrived the hotel was decorated so beautifully and Christmassy we then headed straight to the swimming pool it was so warm and relaxing we had a few lengths and then it was time to head to the Spa Naturel. It was the first time I had ever been to a spa before so I didn't know what to expect. We both had a relaxing massage and cleansing & purifying back treatment with Decleor products which I definitely need to invest in!
It was such luxury and something I definitely wish I could do more often. After the massage we headed to the relaxation lounge to chill out and have a cuppa it was so nice to unwind with Paul in our matching robe and slippers! Lunch was included in the deal so we headed to the restaurant and had lunch which was delicious and the perfect way to end such a relaxing day, I would definitely recommend the Spa package!
I had such a great evening with the girls, some I hadn't seen in a while so was lovely to catch up.
We were greeted with a glass of bubbly and some delicious food to keep us going as we shopped the luxurious collection of boots and shoes. They gave us a brief history of the brand and how it originated in Bath and has branched out to locations such as London and Edinburgh.
They service was amazing, I have quite wide feet so after falling for the black Chelsea boot (they were too tight!) and realising we just weren't meant to be, I fell in love with a pair of 'Liro' classic burgundy loafers. They are quite adventurous for what I would usually go for, black is my safety net ( you just cant go wrong!) But after confirmation from almost everyone in the room I decided they were the ones for me, and I haven't looked back since.
The comfiest shoes I have ever owned I highly recommended putting a pair of these on your wish list!
