As clouds give way to sunshine, it’s time to enjoy London at its brightest and best. Although considered to be outlandishly expensive, and sometimes with fair reasons – there are cocktails that cost the same as our weekly grocery shopping – a day out in London doesn’t have to involve spending a small fortune.
In case you hadn’t noticed, we’re in the middle of a heatwave. Legs are out, skirts are short, and it’s officially Pimms time. In other words, life is wonderful.
But what would be the point of enjoying all of this glorious sunshine in London? When the sun’s shinning, I head over to Brighton for a well deserved break. Hooray!
There’s no shortage of accommodation options available, but I can’t recommend The Grand Brighton highly enough. With Brighton’s legendary seafront staring right back at you and the delights of the town on your doorstep, this hotel is the ultimate in fabulous luxury.
Pretend you’re on the French Riviera and beat the heat with a cocktail. Oh and don’t forget to pick a seriously stylish outfit to match with your cocktail.
Stripes are a Summer’s favourite mainstay – team with an off-the-shoulder top and sequined espadrilles for a look that hit a glam note.
