Staycation at The Sanderson London.

The Sanderson, Fitzrovia, London
So, I didn't quite achieve the whole basking in the south of France under a 30 degree sun, sipping on the finest French wine holiday goal I thought I would after postgrad. I did spend a few days in sunny Copenhagen with Kristabel though, which was exciting, but still not the lazy relaxation I'd been craving. I had promised myself a nice break after uni, because six year of studying and working had taken it's toll on my mental and emotional health and I was TIRED! Every part of my body was begging for some sort of brief getaway if even just for a single night. 

So when the very lovely Katy came to the rescue with an e-mail that noted cocktails at the infamous long bar, a full breakfast spread and mostly importantly a very very cosy nights sleep at The Sanderson, well.... Reader, I cannot quite begin to explain how fast I clicked the reply button..

Sade & Supal, Let Down Your Hair!

So with Supal in tow, I arrived at the Sanderson for their Garden of Eden Summer party with a suitcase, a portfolio and a body in need of a strong drink and a cozy nights sleep. After spending the afternoon shooting and enjoying the macarons that Sanderson kindly sent up, we got dolled up and dressed in all white for the summer party. The courtyard garden was impeccably decorated with fairy lights, and as the sun set over the live band, everything felt so perfect. It was even better that I got to spend the evening doing some serious catching up with Supal, we talked travel, education, career goals and of course - dating in London hehe. After one too many cocktails (due to the very friendly and enthusiastic bartender) we skipped out to grab burritos for dinner and we changed into our pj's and crawled into bed to continue our giggles.

The Morning After The Night Before...

You shouldn't judge a book by it's cover - That I can agree with, however when it comes to hotels, you definitely should judge by how good their showers are and boy was I excited to hop into the shower the next morning. Our bathroom was stocked with Malin + Goetz goodies as well as the most comfortable robe and slippers I have ever had the pleasure of putting on my body. Needless to say, our morning started off well despite it being 7:30am as I had to go to an architecture interview later that morning. Let's talk breakfast shall we? Well if you know me, you'll know pancakes are my thing so if you could, please imagine my delight when a stack of very fluffy and airy pancakes with maple syrup were placed in front of me alongside a flat white and platefuls of smoked salmon and yoghurts with granola, berries and all the trimmings! I almost felt like I could fly to the interview at that point. So with our bellies filled, and our heads rested with a smidge of mid twenties hangover 'hanging' over our heads, we checked out and parted ways feeling well refreshed and in very good spirits.
