The Crazy Bear

Hello everyone! Super long photo post alert...

I hope you've all had a good couple of weeks, apologies for once again being super busy and finding it difficult to post as often as I should! This weekend Charlie and I went away for our anniversary, and of course I couldn't help getting all artsy (and bossy) with some outfit photos - especially once I saw the interior of the hotel we were staying in - PURE HEAVEN. I honestly have never seen anything like it. Nestled inside quaint Beaconsfield, hidden in cottages and converted barns is the breathtaking Crazy Bear Hotel.

Each suite is decorated in a completely unique way, and it's total luck of the draw - you genuinely don't know what you'll get until you arrive. I squealed for a solid 10 minutes once we were given the key and shown our room, and even fell over (seriously) - indulgence to the extreme. Leather floors, ornate golden bed and headboards, flatscreen tv, giant wet room shower, velvet curtains....and the best bit of all - a giant copper bath tub in the middle of the room. That fills up from the ceiling. I kid you not.

I'd never had room service before so you can imagine the novelty of that kicked in pretty swiftly, and we basically gorged ourselves the entire weekend and lazed around in robes. Seared tuna sashimi, mini Aberdeen Angus fillet burgers, giant tamarind monkfish prawns in the Thai restaurant at night, and apple pie and bellinis delivered straight to the door. It was heaven. I ate pudding and watched tv INSIDE a massive bubbly bath tub. We did get a quick glance at the pool and Moroccan lounge (see pics below!) but unfortunately it was too freezing outside to even contemplate stepping inside the water - even though it was heated. I want to mention as well that the service was excellent - we hadn't heard great reviews so were a little nervous about that, but the staff were all lovely and super accommodating.

I decided I want to live there so am going to have to win the lottery okay - there's no other way. No. Other. Way. Anyway, it was a beeaaautiful lovely weekend and I am over the moon and incredibly grateful to have been taken somewhere so unique and exciting. Of course, now that I've had a taste of the high life, it will be difficult to go back... (she says, currently typing away at her secretary day job, nibbling a crusty sandwich for lunch). Sigh...

Obviously I had to do a cheeky outfit shoot while we were there (much to Charlie's dismay #boyfriendsofinstagram lolol), but I got some decent snaps of the food and decor too, as well as the craze-mazing ceiling-filling bathtub - infact, I took way too many - but enjoy! Also, I didn't really realise this until I posted the pictures, but apparently the velvet-y luxe decor of the hotel had me feeling all risqueeeee for my photoshoot. muaha.

  Sigh, till next time you Crazy Bear.... xxx
