New York certainly is the city that never sleeps and it looks like I won't be getting any sleep tonight as I have to travel all night for a early morning flight. Looking forward to a girly weekend with my bestie @griffymitch78 which is long overdue but man early morning airport visits are not my favourite thing.
Do you have a least favourite thing about travelling?
I got the chance to run into a really cool sneaker shop in #copenhagendenmark !! The name of the brand is called Gummi and has a unique selection of #sneakersforsale I’m not sure if they have their own IG account but they really should create one!! If you’re ever in #copenhagen you guys should check out this little shop!!! 🌹🌹🌹 @arkkcopenhagen
Landed in Miami this morning and I could not be happier to be spending a few days here. Being near the beach has always been my happy place ❤️ Wearing a cream @charmingcharlie dress and @sam_edelman platform heels #liveherstyle#ccstyle#miami 🌴 #vacationmode

We were told that there is a Scottish saying referring to anything ‘tough’ as being ‘as hard as Hinnerson's erse' (Henderson's arse') 🍑 My emotions certainly aren’t very tough, and as soon as the initial drone of the bagpipe started my eyes were damp (more like 😭, let’s be honest). This champ (Lea, @pipingonearth) at @1eileandonancastle played a few tunes for a man who had recently lost a loved one; her favourite place in @this_is_scotland had been Eilean Donan and we can see why, it is a truly magical spot that was well worth the visit 🏴
For the final leg of our tour of @visitengland 🏴, we drove through the @lakedistrictcumbria, starting with the @broughtonvillagebakery (which first opened in 1928) in Broughton in Furness, then up along single-track roads to the Newfield Inn in Seathwaite (with its uniquely banded slate floor, brought in from the Walna Scar Quarries) and Wastwater - England's deepest lake, framed by Scafell Pike (England’s highest mountain), Great Gable and Yewbarrow ⛰ It was then time to leave the goat tracks behind for a wee while and take the motorway to @scotlandisnow 🏴. A brief stop in Stirling to stock up on Clan Henderson wares at the ‘House of Henderson’ and we were on our way to @lomondtrossachs 🛶🌲
Driving into the @yorkshiredales took our breath away - the phenomenal patchwork of paddocks framed by old drystone walls will forever be etched in our minds 🙌🏼 We spent the night at the @punchbowlinn (didn’t run into Trent 😒) and had a delicious feed and few local @blacksheepbrewery lagers 🍺 @tquinn_87 had ‘kippers’ 🐟 for breakfast for the first (and probably last) time, before we headed on our way over the Moors to Hawes, visiting the Dales Countryside Museum, the Ropemakers and the @wensleydale_creamery 🧀 Headed up to the @tanhillinn, the highest pub in the British Isles for a beer, and on the way down we pulled into a farm that looked to be in the middle of shearing ✂️ The owner Kevin invited us in for a look and Quinny ended up knocking the wool off of 5 sheep (texels x mules), which will be sold to a property in France for breeding 🐑 Another travelling farmer bucket list item ticked off 👍🏼
From the Cotswolds we headed north east to the North York Moors via William Shakespeare’s house 🏠 in Stratford Upon Avon and Camblesforth where @tquinn_87 went for a ride in the tractor and header 🚜 with Tony and Ryan after pulling over and jumping the fence to say ‘hi’ 👋🏼 Stayed the night at the beautiful Laskill Country House out of Helmsley - the owner Mandy organised for us to visit her sons Matthew and James at their dairy, sheep (Texel, Suffolk and Charollais) and cropping (wheat, barley and maize) property ‘Brook House Farm’ near Whenby and Sheriff Hutton 👨🏻🌾 Enjoyed fish 🐟 and chips 🍟 in Whitby and ventured west across to the Yorkshire Dales for more adventures 👏🏼

Would you pay $300 for this view?
We stayed in the gorgeous Hotel 50 Bowery in Chinatown. It was really lovely and I can't fault it but one of the reasons I booked it was for this view. We snapped this quickly on our first evening. It was a totally candid shot and it just happens to be my favourite one we took in New York. We only stayed a minute and promised to come back to our rooftop bar the next evening for a drink at sunset to really soak in this view
The next evening it was jammed with people not staying in the hotel. There were a load of empty reserved tables about which we assumed were being kept for residents. When we asked if we could reserve a table for the following day we were told we could but it would cost $300! Screw that!
Have you ever been charged to sit at a bar in your own hotel?

After spending the morning traipsing around Notting Hill (didn’t find the blue door 🤔), we caught the Changing of the Guard 💂🏻♀️ at Buckingham Palace along with 20,000 other eager observers 🤳🏼, headed down to Brighton on the train and picked up our trusty new buddy, a VW Golf 🚗 With @tquinn_87 in the drivers seat, we made it safely to the Cotswolds were we checked into @thebelllangford - accom and tucker both 👌🏼 I was utterly taken by the quaint villages, limestone buildings and tumbling flowers, while Quinny jumped a fence to check the quality of a crop 🌾
