This past year hasn’t been easy - we have been through 2 rounds of #IVF and both have failed. After a lot of soul searching (and a lot of love from family and friends) and after a 6 month break, we are now ready to start our 3rd round. I wrote a little something on the blog, and will update it as things happen. I was all smiles on this photo after round 2. Then came the tears. Just wish us luck.
And here’s to a very special @flytographer shoot. This one took place in #Victoria, the actual home of Flytographer. I was joined by Nicole (@flytographerlife), the CEO and founder and Nancy (@luxetravelfamily) who I have also known for a few years (and friends with Nicole in non internet life). We have all met in London, but this was our first time together for the 3 of us - and extra special as i was able to visit their home town, which I loved. My trip to #Canada ‘s #BritishColumbia was short but very special - @tourismvictoriabc prepared the ‘perfect day in Victoria’ for me and Nancy was my very private guide for the week. I absolutely want to go back and I cannot recommend this part of the world enough. It was lovely. #explorecanada #sp

I have to say, I love it when a place *really* surprises me. Don’t get me wrong - I wouldn’t go to #Canada if I didn’t think it would be great... but it was truly exceptional. They even organised the weather for me. But jokes aside, #Vancouver was fantastic - plenty of #luxuryhotel options, the dining was exceptional (and service was really friendly). But what I didn’t expect was how ‘easy’ it was to shop. A great variety of local brands (I didn’t know @lululemon and @sorelfootwear were Canadian 😳), and all the international options, in full force. And being there off season, it kind of felt the city was all ours. It was the perfect setting for my girls trip with @luxetravelfamily, who lives in Victoria and kindly showed me around her ‘2 cities’. The only person who didn’t enjoy my photos and videos was @mroaroundworld, who was stuck in a conference on the other side of the border. Maybe I will bring him the next time I return to @hellobc . Thank you, 🇨🇦 for the incredibly warm welcome and the makeup lessons. @explorecanada #explorecanada #sp

Hello from #Vancouver, a city I have only known for a day and 😍😍 already. My trip to #Canada is a quick one - 3 days, but it’s like a taster of what this fabulous part of the world has to offer. I’m obsessed with the trees and the proper cold weather clothes shopping. But I will tell you more about that tomorrow. And I hope you approve my choice of #luxuryhotel in the city - the fabulous @shangrila_van which screams understatement. Just the way I like it. @explorecanada @hellobc #explorecanada #sp
#nofilter on this photo. I was hoping to see some magnificent #fall colours in #Canada, but I wasn’t expecting to see so many. I loved my visit to @thebutchartgardens half an hour from #Victoria, and I can’t recommend a visit enough. Victoria, the capital of #BritishColumbia was a delightful surprise - so much so, that I’m already planning a return in the summer. If you are in #Seattle or #Vancouver, do come here. It’s only a ferry or short seaplane away - and it’s worth the time. And you can also stay in style at the lovely @fairmontempress. Ready to #explorecanada and be surprised again! @explorecanada #sp

I’m having a fantastic in #Victoria, #BritishColumbia. And having these two (@flytographerlife And @luxetravelfamily) as my guides to their hometown makes it truly special 😍. I am not sure what I was expecting - but Victoria is postcard perfect, but with lots of personality. To get here, I took a 35min seaplane flight from Seattle and will then head to Vancouver by ferry - making it a perfect stop if you are nearby. Ready to @explorecanada? I absolutely am. They even organised the best weather for me. @tourismvictoriabc @hellobc #explorecanada #sp and behind you - an historic building, the BC parliament. So you can really know where I am!

On #Instagram, people always show the ‘pre eating’ photos. Well, here’s what a delicious meal after pure enjoyment looks like. All the #crab. And crab #macandcheese . #godblessamerica (ps: and #yukongold mashed #potatoes).

OMG, it’s snowing! We went into a shop and it was normal weather and then, everything was white! Hard to believe we were at the beach 2 weekends ago! The magic of travel, huh? 😍

And another fundraising effort for the @royalbritishlegion begins. I bought mine today but have also ordered some pins online on their website. #poppyappeal

Do you love #wine and happen to be in #London on Monday 6th? @thenewdouro is organising a very very cool #winetasting event, showcasing some of the very best #winemakers that this region of #Portugal makes. Known all over the world as the Home of #Portwine, they really are making some amazing wines and this event in #Soho really seems to offer something different - and modern! I have a pair of tickets to give away, and also have a code which gives you 50% off (making it a bargain at £15). Use code 2017traveltnd and tell a friend. I’m going to be away and I seriously wished I could attend. Have a look at @thenewdouro ‘s profile and website for more info

#Henley is looking very pretty today. I had a tough week - worked almost 60 hours and had a ‘quite’ sick husband at home, and I think I’m coming down with something myself. Not ideal as we are going away next week. Time for some pre trip beauty treatments with a view (I kid you not), and then sofa time. What are you up to this #weekend?

I miss #Spain already. And the 🍤 and so many other things. What is your favourite #Spanish culinary delight? Solid or liquid, of course!

One thing we loved about @puenteromanoh - the post sunset atmosphere. The hotel has a selection of restaurants located around a plaza which is its main outdoor bar. It super lively from 7pm Til the early hours and super popular with hotel guests and non guests. Also great to meet my good friend @michellechaplow who is based in this part of the world and my new friend @mrsrosieleach - we have been tweeting for years and finally met in person this summer also in this part of the world. And we met again! We had 2 great evenings in the area - we also went to Lobito del Mar, @danigarcia7 's new restaurant in #Marbella outside the hotel - he has 2 others at Puente Romano, so you can't get away from his culinary delights. We always hire a car when we come to this part of the world, but @sovereigntravel 's team actually suggested we wouldn't need it - and they were right! #MrsOsovereign #sp

When I lived in #Lisbon and #Madrid, I was very lucky to have an El Corte Ingles around the corner. So when we come to #Spain, it's a must go - so we can stock up on the basics (which is wine, cheese, jamon, tuna, wine and gin. And a few other things). And this is how they are now displaying the #gin at its #PuertoBanus supermarket. We built in some shopping time after the boat trip and it was very successful. How great does this look? @sovereigntravel #MrsOsovereign #sp 😍😍😍

When in #Spain... we are having lunch with friends who live here and it would be so rude to come to the #beach and not have #paella... what do you like to eat at the beach? Also delighted with the weather.. end of October and it is 24c. When @sovereigntravel and I were deciding on the destination for this trip, we were hoping for decent weather... but this is absolutely fantastic! #MrsOsovereign #spon

@sovereigntravel is introducing a new service concept when you book a holiday with them - instead of just having the very useful 24/7 concierge at your destination, you now have the same person (what they call Trusted Advisers) helping you with all the details from the moment you book your trip. That means a single point of contact before and during the trip - and Helen has had some rather good ideas for ours. I was keen to hear as I do know #Marbella and the area around quite well - and she really was spot on. An obvious suggestion was to enjoy the Med and spend a morning on a boat - as #PuertoBanus is only a few miles from the @puenteromanoh. Both teams coordinated and everything was organised quickly. And even the weather was on our side. And during daylight, the marina is quite nice (and super quiet). #MrsOsovereign #PuenteLife365 #spon
It's #internationalginandtonicday - possibly a made up day, but I'm ready to get on board. Because gin. And because #Spain. Back to one of my favourite places in the world with a little helping hand from @sovereigntravel. Staying at @puenteromanoh and something tells me this will be a great weekend. And before you ask, it was @ginmare, obviously (#ginmiles). #MrsOsovereign #puentelife365 #spon

I think this #cheese #wedding #cake has been my most successful Instagram story ever, based on the number of messages I was surprised with just now. So yes, it's a very British thing - instead of the traditional wedding cake, couples are using this moment to indulge in a very British love, which is cheese and in a tower shape. Just piling them on 😉. I think it's such a great idea - and very photogenic of course. Who else loves cheese?

How's this for a lovely welcome? Last night I spend an evening with @belmond who unveiled their future plans and branding. And their flowers 🌺 were quite spectacular. And so were the @vsoetrain stewards 😉. Have you stayed with Belmond before? #theartofbelmond
