My Very First Latest in Beauty Box

Last week, I received my first Latest In Beauty Box.

Exploring Covent Garden with Hotels.com

Covent Garden is one of my favourite areas in London so when Hotels.com asked me to spend the day exploring the area for the best places to eat, see and visit, I jumped at the chance. Yes, Covent Garden is seriously touristy but there are some great little spots such as Neal’s Yard tucked away from the hustle and bustle. The street acts and market stalls are the essence of London and there are some amazing places to eat in the area. We usually stay near Covent Garden when we are visiting London as there’s so much to do in…
