A couple of weeks ago I was invited along to The Blogger Programme Sleepover with my besties Becca, Jodes & Gee. The sleepover was hosted in the most amazing 3 bedroom suite, Taj 51 Buckinghamgate, I had a real 'pinch me is this real life moment' because it was such a dream to be staying there. Everything about the hotel was perfect, from the beautiful Blossom Tree & water fountain (fun fact - it was gifted by Queen Victoria!) in the grounds, to the most attentive & friendly staff I'd be honoured to stay here again. I was treated like royalty for a weekend.
We arrived in our Kings Deluxe Three Bedroom suite at 3pm on Saturday afternoon to be greeted by the lovely ladies from The Blogger Programme & PRCo. It had been decorated with the cutest personalised balloons from Bedazzled Events & the hotel had even prepared a yummy Chocolate Cookie for us all. We were given a tour of our suite & I was practically speechless, I was blown away by how incredible the suite was & also the generosity of the brands too who had kindly provided us with hampers of goodies for our relaxing weekend ahead.
At 4pm Siobhan arrived from Ruuby to give manicures, I opted for a Shellac in the prettiest pink polish called 'Blush Teddy'. It was nice to be able to have a manicure in the comfort of our Suite rather than being in a salon so I'll definitely be doing that again! After our nail treatments it was time to go & open our amazing hampers, it felt like Christmas having so much to open & look through. The hamper included Missguided Pyjamas, Pretty You London Slippers, Haircare products from Schwarzkopf Got2Be, Sheet Masks from Masque Bar, an Eye Mask from Silk Skin, Norvell tanning products, a Happiness Planner & the sweetest smelling JewelCandle. In addition to this Clarins provided us with a big bundle of beauty products. If you want to watch us opening up our hampers then Becca, Jodes & Gee captured it perfectly in their vlogs!
After our huge unboxing session it was time to get open the Deliveroo App & order food! We ordered a massive feast from Nandos, Pizza Express, Ed's Diner & some yummy Macarons from Dominique Ansel Bakery. We were going to celebrate our girly weekend by ordering a bottle of champers from Veuve Cliquot but unfortunately it closed as we were about to place an order. I absolutely love Deliveroo, being able to order food from my fave restaurants is the best, whats better than tucking into Nandos whilst chilling on the sofa with your besties!?
After dinner we rented a movie from the hotel & had Popcorn delivered to the room, such a lovely touch. I also tucked into the prettiest cupcakes from Sweet Beas Bakery, as well as being super pretty they tasted absolutely delicious too. I was itching to make use of the gigantic bath tub in our ensuite so I ran myself the biggest bubble bath of my life with the hotels Darjeeling bath soak. Whilst the bath was filling up I removed my makeup with the Instant Eye Makeup Remover & Pure Melt Cleansing Gel from my Clarins hamper & popped my Missguided pjs on the towel rail so they would be toasty warm once I was out of the bath.
Waking up in the comfiest bed I've ever slept in was a perfect start to Sunday morning. I felt so refreshed - despite only falling asleep in the early hours of the morning after a big catchup, a mini getaway with my girls was exactly what I needed to relax & rejuvenate. We had breakfast down at the hotel & then headed back to our room to take photographs & pack up our suitcases. I took the time out to reflect on my weekend by filling out my new Happiness Planner whilst I sat on the windowsill overlooking the beautiful hotel grounds.
The final treat of our sleepover weekend was Alice in Wonderland themed Afternoon tea, this was such a magical way to end the most perfect weekend. I couldn't get over how adorable all the miniature food was & got very snap happy indeed so prepare for a bit of a photo spam below! I'd highly recommend having afternoon tea at Taj51, especially if you're looking for something a little different from the traditional type.
Thank you so much to The Blogger Programme for organising such a lovely weekend for us to enjoy!
