This week, if anything has been a lovely and hot one which has made my first week back in the countryside for the Summer particularly lovely. It has also been my first real week working on the PR and Marketing for Pilgrims Nook Holiday Cottages, our family business which I have been doing on the side since this time last year. This has meant lots of battling with the internet to get our email addresses configured, sitting in the sun doing research, running around finding content for our blog (I like this bit, it usually involved reviewing restaurants, one of my all time favourite activities!), welcoming guests, attending events and I think later this morning I'm going to be spending my time talking about weddings, and this afternoon I'm going to be shooting some jubilee themed images in the cottages for the website too.
1. Reviewing The Duke William pub in Ickham for the Pilgrims Nook Holiday Cottages blog. | 2. A little preview of my next 'Weekly Polish' on The Glossy Guide; I'm totally in love with 'Roll In The Hague' from O.P.I's SS12 Holland Collection. | 3. Amazing, mouthwatering paella (the mussels were incredible) at Williams & Brown in Whitstable (another Pilgrims Nook review excursion I have not posted on the Pilgrims Nook blog yet). | 4. A little reminder, along with 4 other bloggers I have teamed up with the amazing designer resale site Vestiaire Collective so you can win up to £500 to spend on their site! | 5. Inside 'The Squire' at Pilgrims Nook | 6. Delicious brownies and ifabbo coloured mini cupcakes at the ifabbo London Bloggers Conference.
