Happy New Year! It feels like forever since I last switched my laptop on and did some blog work but I thought it was about time I did my first post of 2019! So.. last month I was invited to check out a brand new luxury hair salon in Marlow, Buckinghamshire called The Chapel.

Earlier this month I went on a little girly trip away with blogger pals Terri and Charl to the wonderful city of Prague. Our other bloggy friend Tereza is Czech and when she moved back home last year after living in the UK for a few years we always promised we’d go to the Czech Republic to visit her! Tereza lives in an amazing, super-stylish apartment in central Prague but as we didn’t want the three of us to invade her…
