We may still be in August but I am writing this post whilst sitting snuggled up all cosy in my PJ’s and a duvet. The weather outside is miserable and the rain has been on and off continuously for the past week or so. So, if you’re in a sunnier part of the world then please don’t judge me for sharing the comfiest, cosiest slippers in the middle of what should be summer.

I have always been a fan of UGG boots, whether they look good or not is irrelevant because they are insanely comfortable…okay? So, when I was contacted by Luxury Gifts & Designer Homeware retailer, Amara I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to get my hands on some UGG slippers.

I am a fan of snake skin, but only when its used discreetly so as you can imagine, I was super excited when I spotted the Women’s Scuffette Snake Slippers. In the past, I’ve always had the traditional UGG Scuffette slippers but they always get dirty so easily so the fact that these slippers have a leather upper is a huge win for me, and that they’re black so they don’t show too is a win too.

The slippers have a sheepskin collar and the UGGpure lining and oh my goodness, they are so comfortable and warm. What I potentially love most is not only how great they look but also how practical they are. By not showing every part of dirt and having a hard rubber sole, the slippers can be worn without the need to keep replacing them which you have to do with most slippers (sooo annoying!)

These slippers were originally £85 but have gone down to £55 so are such a bargain. You can get your pair here.

There are few things that make me happier than a weekend away, so when I was invited to visit Clarendon Royal Hotel back in July, I knew this was an offer I couldn’t turn down.

Clarendon Royal Hotel is located in Gravesend, Kent and overlooks the river Thames so isn’t too far from where I live in Essex. We stayed in the Pocahontas suite which overlooked the Thames and were lucky enough to visit on a sunny day so the view was beautiful.

The suite included one bedroom which had a beautiful four poster bed in (which was incredibly comfortable) as well as a bathroom and open lounge/diner. Our initial reaction to the room was the amazement at how large it was…it was bigger than our entire flat at home!

One of my biggest tick boxes when staying away is the cleanliness of the room so after a quick inspection, I was very pleased to give this a big tick.

In addition to staying in a beautiful room, we were also invited to dine with Clarendon Royal Hotel for dinner and then breakfast the next morning. The staff could not have been more accommodating or welcoming, taking the time to talk to us about the hotel and its history as well as the future plans.

All in all, we had a brilliant stay with everything from a luxurious room, delicious cocktails and a view to take your breath away.

Thank you Clarendon Royal Hotel, we’ll definitely be back.
