Before celebrations start, before we start hunting shops searching for the sparkliest dress for our Christmas party, before the wine, the turkey and the presents, we thought it would be a nice idea to take the last two weeks of November to fully embrace self-care and do something that would inject us with a little extra shot of wellbeing and motivation.

We are not exactly super fans of Black Friday anyway and while the nation goes, let’s admit it, a little crazy scouting for the best bargains, we thought we would take a step back and let the madness unravel while we take a few moments of me-time.

Have dinner @ Coppa Club’s The Igloo in London. We cannot wait to cosy up under the stars in these beautiful igloos. Food, drinks, a lovely blanket and the Tower Bridge as your backdrop, we couldn’t really ask for more. Rumour has it that these beautiful igloos will soon be in Swansea marina as well.  Hurry up, they are taking bookings already. Click here for more details.

Enjoy an SPA pamper evening in Bath. We are off to The Garden Spa by L’Occitane at The Priory Hotel in Bath. Champagne, canapés, treatments and enough pampering to fuel us up until the new year. We might as well indulge to a night at the hotel itself, someone said they tend to leave fresh-baked cookies on your pillow…

Skate in South Wales. We are going to slip into our new Winter gear and enjoy the Christmas Village at The Celtic Manor. Home of The 2010 Ryder Cup and host venue of the NATO Summit 2014, the five-star Celtic Manor Resort also offers a choice of seven restaurants including Steak on Six, Cen with MasterChef finalist Larkin Cen, and the Newbridge on Usk. We might even stay the night and enjoy one of their luxury SPA packages because why not!
