Beach Polo is almost here…..The event of the Summer hits Sandbanks the weekend of 10th & 11th July.
Only one sport is glamorous enough for the platinum peninsula of Sandbanks’
The Asahi British Beach Polo Championships come to Sandbanks……This ultimate exclusive beach community in the UK is where you want to spend Summer. On stunning white sand – all pristine ‘Blue Flag’ beaches, only a few hours from London, with beautiful chic hotels, stunning luxe homes and amazing views over beautiful Poole harbour.
I love Polo and the alternative playing field really appeals – combining chic sport fun with beach party cool – perfect! Unlike traditional polo – beach ‘arena’ polo is played within a smaller area with fewer players per team and games are always more physical as the players are in close proximity to each other. It’s an exciting and glamorous event followed by the legendary beach parties…as ever top name DJ’s will get the party started when the sun goes down. DJ EZ headlining Friday with DJ Charles on Saturday.
Professional polo player, Jack Kidd says: “The top polo players are really excited about returning to Sandbanks for another year to play some incredibly competitive polo on the beach and in front of a large crowd. The setting is always spectacular!’
Ticket options include hospitality with table service, two day passes, VIP beach party tickets and family tickets. As well as the fantastic Polo games there will be fashion shows, licensed bars, the retail village, and lots of food concessions.
Stunning surroundings on the chicest beach in the country – Sandbanks is the place to be.

Dolce – Dolce & Gabbana
A soft gorgeous mix of white flowers – Water lily and fresh Spring white Daffodil blend with with fresh Neroli leaves and White Amaryllis – a South African flower used for the first time ever in perfume making this a really unique scent! The stunning bottle flower stopper pays tribute to Sicilian customsand Dolce signed in Domenico Dolce’s father’s own signature!

Gorgeous light and fresh floral with a sweetness and elegance. Fresh petals and green leaves – tuberose, peach, orange flower , rose and white cedarwood. Just beautiful.
L’Eau De Issy – Issy Miyake
Classic iconic fragrance that I think is perfect for Spring. Soft, elegant with a stunning bottle. Imagined as ‘the scent of water’ it’s a fresh, floral and woody scent with hints of lilies and soft freesia combined with sensual precious woods – gorgeous!
I love Bond No 9 with their gorgeous fragrances and stuning bottles – and this fresh Spring scent is just perfect. It’s crisp green blended with blossom and soft woods. Lily of the Valley, ivy and cyclamen – fresh, clean and uplifting. Like a walk in park…..
Spring Flower- Creed
Beautiful luxe perfumes with a bespoke feel – that’s Creed. Elegant and beautiful and worn by rockstars and royalty. Vibrant fresh green notes combined with succulent fruits – Peach, Apricot, Melon and Apple over a heart of jasmine and rose – and just a touch of musk. Gorgeous!

Have you found yourself wanting to escape the city and venture somewhere new? Well I may of just discovered a hidden little gem just perfect for that weekend getaway – The West Park Hotel in Yorkshire.
Nestled in the historic Yorkshire town of Harrogate this Award Winning elegant and spacious boutique hotel is located a high-heel stroll away from retail and spa heaven. With ten individual chic suites and 2 elegant duplex penthouses, every room has gorgeous super king-sized beds, wide screen tv and free wifi. The luxe bathrooms have underfloor heating and speakers for your own music and are filled with L’Occitane products.
Enjoy a glass of champagne at the bar of this stylish lavish hotel or sample one of the bar manager, Marks exquisite cocktails. If you are feeling a little more adventurous why not visit one of the many spas in the local area. Harrogate is famous for their baths after all!
This hotel is all about the little details with excellent customer service. There are two restaurants to choose between at the hotel, both have exceptional food, I can highly recommend the brasserie classic, East Coast Haddock and Chips which tasted divine or the melt in your mouth fillet of beef & black truffle ‘rossini’ An added bonus for me was that my pooch companion was even welcome to join me for dinner .
After a long relaxing day there is nothing better than walking into a beautifully decorated room and slipping between the sheets of a 6ft bed. Heavenly!
A fabulous stay – luxurious, elegant – highly recommended.
