3 years ago, almost to the day we upped sticks from our beloved little flat in Battersea and moved to Marlow in Buckinghamshire. At first it seemed a daunting relocation, but a necessary one as we knew the area had some of the best schools and it was either here or Streatham. It was lonely at first as I only had one best friend….how things change!! My other fear was leaving my fave London retail trappings, (Shop at Bluebird, Peter Jones, Space NK, Lilly Diva, Duke of York’s Headquarters, Chelsea Design Centre and CLEARLY Manolo Blahnik).
My retail fears have since been quashed, as Marlow is seriously becoming a mecca for some of the best boutiques to be discovered in the UK. The STUNNING Living In Store being one – a super chic luxury lifestyle boutique stocking the best brands, ranging from Compagnie de Provence, Anya Hindmarch, Belle & Boo to Vita Audio stereos, Marnie Moyle and more – my FAVOURITE, which I had to buy for our home yesterday was a Neom Organic Reed Diffuser – If Blogs had a scent diffuser somehow (you never know…one day maybe!), you’d be sitting at home in pure bliss right now – my whole house smells of a spa….too lovely for words….
