Take A Break

9 August 2010

The past few months have been a sea of chaos and with less than a few weeks till the arrival of our first child, the Kiwi and I decided to leave behind the million and one things that still need doing for a weekend of pampering in the greatest city in the world.

We headed to Imagine Spa in South Kensington for an hour and a half of massages/facials/manicure/pedicure followed by brunch at gastro pub The Duke of Clarence (Old Brompton Road) on our way to boutique hotel The Cranley where we were greeted with a bottle of champagne and yummy chocolates in our stunning suite.

After a leisurely stroll down the gorgeous Kings Road, with a slight bit of celeb spotting (Kimberley Walsh swished past us on a pedestrian crossing) we returned to the hotel for a decadent and very civilized afternoon tea in the lobby complete with scones slathered with strawberry jam and clotted cream. I napped off the calories and awoke in time for a refreshing soak in the bath and enjoyed making myself up for dinner at The Kensington Hotel's Aubrey restaurant.  It was a balmy night and I savoured each moment knowing that it’d be a while before we’d do anything like it again.

The following morning we enjoyed an indulgent breakfast with all the trimmings and even a little left over champers in the oversized patio attached to our room before heading home and back to reality.

There’s nothing like getting away for night or two.  For us it was about a last hoorah before we become parents but for you brides to be out there, do it as a means to forget about your wedding planning and just enjoy your fiancée.
