Grey isn't the first colour that springs to mind during these warmer months of the year and yet here I am, proudly wearing it and wondering why I'd never done so before! With so much attention lately going to the unusual yet strangely attractive grey hair trend, it inspired me to apply the colour to my nails - a far less permanent alternative of injecting the steely shade into my life.

Rolling hills, wide open spaces and unique features around every corner, Painshill Park is pretty much a playground for adults. Located in Surrey, the award winning landscape garden is somewhere I've been meaning to visit for quite some time and now that I have finally made my way there during this beautiful month of June, I'm pleased to say it very much lived up to my expectations!

I have a never-ending list of interests and hobbies, with some appearing and soon evaporating.. as well as others hanging around for quite some time. An example of the latter is attending the theatre and particularly to watch murder mystery plays and musicals; for years now I've been enjoying regular trips to theatres to admire great talent along with soaking up some of the flamboyant and creative atmosphere. With this in mind, I was thrilled to be invited to see Beyond Bollywood at the London Palladium and share my thoughts on A Glass Of Ice!

I've become incredibly fond of sharing travel diaries on A Glass Of Ice and so reaching this third and final part of my Bruges city break is just a little disappointing. On the one hand, there'll be plenty more travel diaries to come in the future, however on the other hand.. can I not remain nostalgic about this 'mozzarella and tomato ball' hors d'oeuvre for a while longer?

Okay, here we at part two of my city break - I hope you enjoyed the first instalment of my Belgium travel diary! I'll pick up from where I left off - greedily tucking into sweet treats at the quaint Tea-room De Proeverie before wandering through the cobbled streets of Bruges. So, as the sun was beginning to set, we made our way back to the sumptuous Grand Hotel Casslebergh where we were staying on this occasion. I have to admit, I truly believe a grand hotel is at it's finest come the evening - the lighting changes, guests swap sweats for chinos and the ambience nearly always becomes borderline romantic.

Exploring new cities can be so refreshing (and exciting), however sometimes, it can be just as nice to revisit somewhere you've previously discovered. There's a certain degree of comfort and security in doing so, as you know where you're going and can sit back and enjoy the ride, as opposed to eagerly searching to squeeze as much out of the city as possible in the time you have. On this occasion, my 'revisit' was the historic city centre of Bruges, a place I never grow tired of regardless how many times I visit! One thing I do change however, is the hotel to return to at the end of each day - this time, I had the pleasure of staying at the Grand Hotel Casselbergh.

I'm all for products that promote relaxation, whether they be candles, bath oils or reed diffusers.. if the product is on board for inducing tranquility, so am I! One thing, however, that hadn't occurred to me until very recently was that the same level of relaxation could be directed to the face. I've been aware of Decléor for a few years now and so when I came across their luxurious Aromessence Rose d'Orient Night Balm, I figured it was time to begin my love affair with the aromatherapy skincare brand!

Earlier today, I posted a photo of myself (or rather, the back of my head) in the gardens of Arundel Castle on Instagram. For a while, I wondered how on Earth to put into words how I felt; how I felt about the beautiful weather, how I felt about the spectacular gardens, how I felt about the fascinating castle and on and on. Eventually, I settled for an accompanying caption that summed up every thought and feeling I had on the day, one of my favourite quotes:
''Summertime is always the best of what might be''

Over the past week or so, I've been covering the Ethereal Collection c/o by Mii Cosmetics on A Glass Of Ice, starting with the lip products and moving on to the eye colours. With this in mind, this third instalment discusses the beautiful skin shimmers kindly sent my way! As you'll know by now, the collection is made up of seven items and all of which sport playful and rather enchanting names - on this occasion, you're looking at the Celestial Skin Shimmers 'Aurora' and 'Rose Quartz'.
