Staycation: St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel, London

Staycation: St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel, London

I probably go past the St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel around 2 to 3 times a week, I’ve been to events there, I’ve even had a few meetings, and each time I step inside the beautifully restored Victorian Gothic building the architecture takes my breath away, so I was a little giddy when I found out I’d be spending the night before whizzing over to Paris as part of a press trip.

The façade is spectacular, Gilbert Scott really knew what he was doing, and even during my short stay I loved getting lost just admiring the architectural details, from the grand staircase, which if you’re a Spice Girls fan you might recognise, to the Gothic Revival metalwork, gold leaf ceilings, the stunning wall designs, and those tiles that are just asking to be Instagrammed with the #IHaveAThingWithFloors!!!

It was only five months ago, but my wedding and honeymoon have become sources of extreme happiness, it used to be when I was down I pinned gorgeous wanderlust pictures of travels I hoped to make, now if I am in need of some cheering up I find just by flicking through my images and videos really does make things better. Do you have something that instantly makes you happy?

Postcard From Heysham, Lancashire

Today is International Day of Happiness and it got me thinking about what makes me happy, the list is pretty long, I’m quite content at the moment.
