Femme Luxe – an honest review.

Black Mesh Ruffle Off The Shoulder Top

I’m a huge fan of this ruffle top! I love anything floaty for a meal out so I can hide the bloat after 3 courses haha. Although the top comes with two shoulder straps, I prefer the full off the shoulder look. This top is reasonably priced at £17.99, I purchased a size 12 and it is true to size.

Titanic Hotel, Belfast: Review

From the moment we heard the Titanic Hotel, located at the Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast, was due for opening we knew we had to go. My husband Sam has been fascinated with Titanic for so many years so stopping at the hotel that was once HQ and drawing offices during the ships construction was quite simply, a no brainer. Opening in September 2017 we finally got chance to steal a weekend with some friends and head over to spend a couple of nights with the hotel.

Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire VR experience

If your an avid Star Wars fan, you’d probably aware that the travelling VR experience The VOID came to London’s Westfield shopping centre earlier this year. What you probably don’t know is that it’s last few days fell when our team were in London visiting an exhibition ?.

I’m not going to pretend to know much about Star Wars, I’ve seen the films once or twice and that’s where it ends. However a few people with me were big fans. Tickets were sold out with only a small number available on the door, through some impressive skills we managed to talk our way into 5 tickets!

Rosebery Hotel, Jesmond Review


From the moment you step into Rosebery Hotel you enter a world of excitement and imagination, this hotel is purely unlike no other. Decor incorporates both vintage and up-cycled design with unique, local creations! The outcome is simply breath taking, and the passion of the hotel owner (Janet) is etched into every element of the hotel. Located in Jesmond, just off the high street, it’s in a prime location. Navigation is easy and effortless with the high street displaying an abundance of busy bars and niche restaurants to suit your every taste.

Mini plant tour Oxford, review

We’re a mini obsessed family, so when I found out it’s possible to book a tour of the plant in Oxford, UK, I jumped at the chance. The plant produces up to 1,000 cars per day, and the tour allows you to get up and personal with the factory to see just how that iconic British icon is manufactured.

Review, Aria Sky Suites, Las Vegas


Travelling to Las Vegas on our Honeymoon I figured now was as good a time as any to ask for an upgrade. I didn’t realise how easy this trick was, and being typically British, didn’t think I qualified! How wrong I was. We were upgraded to the Aria Sky Suites by a front desk representative and appointed a high level room with an impressive strip view.

Room

Our room was on the 40th floor with an exceptional view of the strip! Rooms were inclusive of 2 queen size beds, a shower and an oversized bath. Impressively, the electronics of the room are controlled by iPads, from the comfort of our bed we were able to open and close blinds, dim lights and alter the air conditioning. We would also be able to order room service, browse the hotel and casino information and control the television.
