Wearing…

Massimo Dutti oversized linen shirt/ dress

Perfect for summer holidays. Wear with flat sandals throughout the day, or a pair of heels at night. Accessorise with oversized statement earrings, or dress down with a pair of white summer sneakers for an effortless day time look. Features a straight fit, kent collar, concealed placket, side pockets and long sleeves that look stylish rolled up.

Limited Edition Birkenstock

These really are a luxe buy, but they’re an investment in my book. A summer wardrobe staple that you can wear year after year. Definitely worth the expense, they’re one of Birkenstock’s hallmark designs updated with a Tuscan Slant. A limited-edition design for the II Dolce Far Niente collection, crafted from woven raffia, rose gold-tone metal buckles. A perfect alternative to heels, should you have a summer evening dinner date.

All Saints straw bag

I consider this to be the perfect summer accessory, perfect for travelling, taking to the beach, or wearing to dinner. The long leather strap handles gives it an elegant feel – and really makes a statement. With two kids to think of, I always find my bag is never big enough for all of our bits and bobs, but this one fits the bill. It’s definitely going to be my most used accessory this summer.

Loving…

Our Jasper coasters, which are bang on trend at the moment. The polished, natural stone is neutral and timeless and makes a statement in any room in the home – whether the living room, dining room, kitchen or bedroom. Jasper stone is said to boost positivity, bring good luck, strengthen family bonds and long term relationships and encourage our playful side.

Building update…

After months of reviewing samples and materials for the outside of the building, we have finally made a choice and are ready to submit full planning permission. With an eight-week wait ahead of us, now it’s just a case of being patient! Soon we’ll start planning the interiors – my favourite part. You can follow the build’s progress on Instagram at @the_hudson_life.

 

Listening to…

Lewis Capaldi’s debut album, Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent. It’s easy listening at its best – perfect background music for summer entertaining.

 

Travelling….

I’ve fallen in love with a new hideaway called Finca Serena in Mallorca. The brand new hotel is effortlessly pared-back and simply luxurious; a place where nature is uninhibited and real flavours can be rediscovered through the simplest of foods, including fruits from the surrounding landscape. The 12th century estate offers a boutique spa, private yoga classes, walks, running circuits and healthy gastronomy for all. They claim it’s “a place to find the best version of yourself ”, surrounded by history. Somewhere to enjoy a bit of well-deserved pampering and unwind in stillness. Bliss.
