The other day, my friend and I were talking about what our dream job was. Honestly, when he asked, it was not something I had ever really thought about. Yeah, there are jobs where you can survive day to day, but do you enjoy it? Does it fulfill you is some way? Well, talking to […]

Just A Spoonful of sugar

To finish celebrating turning forty I decided to go to New York for the first time in my life. It’s somewhere I’ve always wanted to go. I’ve watched Sex and the City a thousand times thinking… “Wow New York seems like such a cool place to be.” I desired to walk, with my heels on […]

The Scottish Sun
From floating hotels to luxury penthouse suites, our man about town explores Scotland’s best experiences. Thousands of Scots are now planning overnight trips as the Bank Holiday season kicks-off, and with the summer seemingly here already it’s no wonder many of us are opting for a ‘staycation’ this Spring. Forget the Costa and go for something more local But what to do and where to go over the weekend? I’ve been from Barra to the Borders in seek of Scotland’s most luxurious and unique hotel accommodation experiences. Any of these take your fancy? The Bus Stop – a holiday experience where you stay on a Bus! Our man Phil didn’t mind waiting around at this bus stop The Bus Stop is a holiday experience with a difference. This luxury, hand crafted accommodation is set on a working farm with beautiful panoramic views of the Lammermuir Hills, in the stunning East Lothian countryside. Enjoy camp-fires, starry nights and wood fired hot-tubs with their aim to provide guests with an unhurried pace and a hearty Scottish welcome! Their luxury buses offer a cosy atmosphere, with wood-burning stove, bespoke furnishings and a breathtaking view of the Lammermuir hills. The Bus Stop is situated on a working arable farm and during your stay you will be able to witness the day to day running of the farm, which changes throughout the year depending on the season. The farm is home to alpacas, horses, sheep and chickens, so there are also plenty of great photo opportunities! Enjoy camp-fires, starry nights and wood fired hot-tubs with their aim to provide guests with an unhurried pace Throughout the year our farm is home to old buses, which are in all different levels of restoration. The bus enthusiasts who restore these buses were the inspiration behind The Bus Stop. You might even be surprised to come across an old bus that used to transport you around the country as a child! Each bus has it’s own unique character with handcrafted interiors and individual finishing touches. The luxury buses are both the perfect romantic getaway (dreamy king size beds and stargazing sky lights) and an exciting family adventure. The private wood fired hot-tubs on the decking will ensure a great stay for you and your guests. P.S. For extra comfort and ease during your stay, they have converted one of the stable blocks into a small farm larder, supplying a few essentials such as wine, beer, ice cream, milk, bread and eggs (freshly laid on the farm hopefully!).

It’s a small scale organically evolved holiday retreat featuring a hostel, 4 tent camping, two luxury eco-cabins, a sauna & outdoor hot tub. The list of attractive features at the Lazy Duck is a long one, and includes the bush shower (commune with nature the Australian way); the open-ended campers’ shelter; the walk out to the juniper moor to view CairnGorm mountain; and it has to be said, the brilliant and bizarre lazy ducks themselves. Their little hut hostel, that sleeps up to 8 people, nestles amongst ancient pine forest, with waterfowl and wildlife the nearest neighbours. It looks south across a neighbouring 100 acre grazing moor of heather, peat moss and Caledonian woodland to Cairngorm (1245m) and Bynack More (1090m) nine miles away. Warning! Some heavy lifting may be needed Lazy duck is a hidden gem and definitely a place where you can completely switch off from urban life!

The panoramic bay window (with a couch handily placed behind it) provides a clear view over the forest and out to sea, with a chance to see the Northern Lights in the winter. The cabin is also a bird watchers’ paradise, with goldcrests (Scotland’s smallest bird), long-eared owls, sea eagles and golden eagles all having been spotted from the window. Inside the decor is sleek and minimalist, with a free-standing bath that also looks out across the forest and a handily placed log burning fire. The cabin isn’t pet friendly, but with deer known to have been caught grazing right outside the door, it’s probably for the best… Visit: www.uistforestretreat.co.uk [article-rail-section title=”MORE NEWS” posts_category=”2″ posts_number=”12″ query_type=”popular” /] Fingal – a Luxury Floating Hotel in Edinburgh Got some sea legs?

So when it comes to their shoe options, they’re big on keeping it comfortable and chic, which just about everyone knows is not always the easiest thing to do. With chic options being uncomfortable and comfortable options never being chic, it’s a tangled web we weave. [ami-related id=”- Click to search articles -” url=”https://www.usmagazine.com/shop-with-us/news/dvf-granddaughter-talita-capsule-collection-diane-von-furstenberg/” title=”Shop With Us: Diane von Furstenberg’s Granddaughter Shares Her Favorites in New Capsule Collection” target=”” inset=”true”] The safest bet when looking for shoes that offer both? Sneakers, of course! It’s our forever favorite option as well as for virtually every Hollywood A-lister, too! For stars like Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner and Martha Hunt, it’s the simple solution when we don’t want to sacrifice chicness for comfort. In fact, we spotted Hunt sporting this exact sneaker and that’s a reason in itself to slip into it ASAP! See it: Grab the Nike Classic Cortez Leather for $70, available at Zappos!  The Nike Classic Cortez Leather is the most understated shoe option on the market. These sleek sneakers can instantly transform an outfit and are the error-proof, fashion-forward option when looking to master everyday dressing like a pro. Why is this sneaker so magical? Well, that’s super simple. Nike refined the traditional silhouette when it designed this all-white sneaker. It’s important to note while the structure in itself is traditional, it’s anything but boring. This fresh kick is actually fresher than ever! The plush leather upper is brilliantly paired with a low-tow bottom. It’s the perfect ratio when looking for a hi/low option. The sneaker is not too high where it’s a platform, but not too low where it’s considered flat. Since we’re already speaking of perfect features, let Us continue on. When slipping into this sneaker, it’s the shoe that keeps on impressing. It’s extremely impactful in terms of design. From the lace-up closure to the breathable mesh lining and the lightly padded collar, it’s one astonishing feature after another. Think of it as the subtle option that will remain striking. See it: Grab the Nike Classic Cortez Leather for $70, available at Zappos!  Our favorite feature of them all? The padded footbed, obviously! The struggle for comfy shoes could not be more real, but this sleek sneaker looks to end all of our previous woes. It’s the ultimate worry-free option. When sliding into this sneaker, it provides all-day support that will keep our best foot going forward even through the toughest times and the most terrible forecasts! It comes as no shock that so many celebrities were drawn to this dependable sneaker. In fact, Martha Hunt was just snapped leaving Taylor Swift‘s New York City apartment in this sleek silhouette on April 23. Dodging the paparazzi is no easy task in itself, so it’s best to slip into a shoe that can survive even the toughest situations! This sneaker was surely the ultimate option (and savior!) when looking for a shoe that offered up all of the necessary support for Hunt. And it definitely didn’t skimp on style, either. Just like Hunt, it’s only natural to gravitate to the white option (despite all the other colors available). It’s the basic that is anything but basic and the easiest silhouette when looking for a highly transitional option. Whether we’re sliding it on with our favorite sundress, pairing them with a fun two-piece set or styling like Hunt with a slip skirt and sweater, these Nike sneakers are the fun and functional shoe we can’t help but want to wear daily.

Half of my heart is in Savannah oOo na na. I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to visit this beautiful town.

“The poor you will always have with you.”  Jesus of Nazareth  The first thing you have to know is that being homeless is exhausting.  A homeless person is trying to live low and not be noticed.  Notice means risk.  Risk of robbery, assault, rape; notice means police, and the contempt of people who aren’t you […]
