The Hi-Tech Hub Hotel | Westminster, London

Who knew staying central could be so affordable, and so high tech?The Hub got it right first time.. Hub is the new love child of Premier Inn, offering stylish urban hotels in the best locations around London. I was lucky enough to be asked if worldmeetstwo would like to review a room at their new Westminster location and obviously couldn’t say no. The hotel is located right next to St James’ Park tube station and a stones throw from most of London’s main sights – perfect if you want to explore the area or if you need to be central for whichever reason. There is 5 Hub hotels around London including one in Edinburgh.The hotel is really stylish and modern with machines to check you in and register your room cards, as well as being able to control your hotel room from your smartphone via the hub app (heating, lights…

Black On Black On Black.

Can we just pretend that wearing all black isn’t my usual get-up and hold a shocked expression? I feel like its slightly expected that I’ll be wearing an outfit made from varying textures of black clothing, or mostly black with a hint of white or grey but this will be the last for a while (she says). I’m trying to mix up my wardrobe and add a few more neutral tones for the Autumn to feed my wardrobe with something new and give into the trends. Suggestions welcome..  Styling my favourite leather jacket and basic black jeans, I added a layered lace cami and some suede buckled boots for a more ‘stylish’ take on wearing all black. River Island actually have some great pieces in at the moment so whenever I go into a store, my wardrobe doubles in size. WHAT IM WEARING JavaScript is currently disabled in this browser.

Fawn Pleats.

Sometimes when it comes to my blog, I’m a little lost for words. Over the last week I have walked out of my graduate job and taken Copper Garden into full time status. I will definitely be writing a whole post about this in the coming weeks but for now, just know that its one of the best decisions that I ever made and the content is about to become much better..  Speaking of changes, I mixed it up a little in this one didn’t I? Pleats are a trend that I’ve always loved but never really styled because I’m not a skirt kinda girl, but these culottes are a new addiction.  Leather and Suede Jacket: AllSaints via John Lewis White Roll Neck Top: ASOS Pleated Culottes: Mandi Candi Trainers: American Eagle City Bag: Zara

How To Spend A Long Weekend In South Africa.

Normally if you were going as far as South Africa, you’d need to spend two weeks there to experience the country properly but with a little time off work and a spontaneous decision – I got on a flight for three nights around Johannesburg and loved every minute. My trip didn’t really have a plan so we just explored what we could and made sure we barely slept to make the most of our trip so that every second was filled with some kind of adventure. We managed to get so much done that I thought I’d share a little post about how to experience South Africa in four days.. FlightsFrom London most flights are overnight which is the easiest way to go as its 11 hours from Heathrow. Rather than wasting a day travelling, you can have a full day either side of the flight in both directions. I flew out on…

Transitioning Your Wardrobe: Summer to Autumn

I’ve made it no secret that my summer isn’t ending any time soon so I thought I’d give you a little peek into how I’m keeping my summer going strong here in the UK. Sometimes you’ve just got to embrace the bare legs for as long as possible, even when its chilly outside and theres a 70% chance you’ll catch a cold. I’ve made it no secret that my summer isn’t ending any time soon so I thought I’d give you a little peek into how I’m keeping my summer going strong here in the UK. For most girls the change in season means grabbing your winter clothes out of a suitcase in the loft and switching out your summer collection for a few months. I always wonder why I’m not this savvy with clothing but my preference is to keep everything timeless and not seasonal. I like to leave clothes hung in my…

The Cabanas Hotel | Sun City Resort, South Africa.

I feel like recently there has been a slight influx in travel content on Copper but hopefully you’re enjoying this little change? I feel like as this blog is an extension of me, it should go wherever I do and talk about everything that interests me at that given time.  As you guys have seen on my instagram, my trip to Paris was quickly followed by a trip to South Africa. Its a country that I’d always wanted to visit but never found the time or travel companion but last month I decided enough was enough. My trip was only four days long which isn’t nearly enough time but I thought I’d let you know what I got up to so you can realise how beautiful the country is and how much you need to go! During my trip, we spent two days in the beautiful Sun City resort which is located in the…

BEYOND NAKED: Shapewear For Confidence.

What does shapewear mean to you? Is it a way of smoothing your silhouette, contouring your body or slimming to look better in a dress? Here are my thoughts.. My wardrobe is full of oversized clothing whether its high waisted trousers, a shift dress or ‘two sizes too big’ t-shirts. This all started in university as I struggled with my weight and used clothes as a cover up. Now that I’m back to a size 6, its like a fun experiment to try on tighter clothes and enjoy the confidence I’ve gained.Wacoal have recently launched Beyond Naked, a shapewear collection for everyday which is invisible under clothes and doesn’t restrict you in any way. They give you a smoother silhouette in tighter clothing which helps boost confidence and give you more outfit options!For the last week I have been trying out various pieces from the Beyond Naked collection under my everyday outfits to see how…

Windmills.

September was the month of exploration. I fell in love somewhere between the Greek islands, Parisian dream and into the South African home of my new love. I had adventures in old and new places, letting go and being free from worry and full of life. *make sure you follow WorldMeetsTwo for more..September was the month of exploration. I fell in love somewhere between the Greek islands, Parisian dream and into the South African home of my new love. I had adventures in old and new places, letting go and being free from worry and full of life. Times like these make me grateful to have this blog, with so many lovely comments about how much happier I look and how the positivity in my writing has changed, evolved and become much more enjoyable to read. These pictures were taken in the middle of open land, so peaceful and empty.…

Exploring Paris on a Budget.

On a first trip to Paris, its easy to get caught up in the whirl of monuments and attractions. Those things are worth seeing but on a return trip, its fun to get lost and explore different sides to the beautiful city that you may have missed before. I’ve been to Paris twice now and thought I’d share a way to explore the city without spending too much.. Relax by the canalThere are various spots in Paris to sit by the canal and watch the world go by, so with coffee in hand this is what we did. When its sunny, the locals and other tourists scatter the banks so you will always find someone to chat toFree admission to museumsLots of the museums in Paris are free admission so becoming engulfed in the culture is easy. The Louvre, Pompidou and other museums are free either always or the first Sunday of the…

Outdoor Cardio Made Easier.

Its no secret that I’m a sucker for a good pair of sneaks – whether they’re for the gym or wearing every day to style up an outfit. This pair of trainers from ON are mainly worn for my outdoor cardio sessions, letting me run through the world breathing in all of the fresh air and giving me pure headspace and after two months of trialling them, its about time I let them hit my blog. ON use a swiss technology to make their shoes one of the highest performing on the market, with the soles made to feel like I’m running on clouds. This technology takes the tension away from my knees which was a winner for me. I find that outdoor running can be tough after a couple of miles so the cushioned sole is perfect. Each of the parts of the sole is separated so they move individually depending…

Why I’m Skipping London Fashion Week This Season.

London Fashion Week is always the main event to most bloggers calendars. We head down to Brewer Street with our cameras and handfuls of invites, catching up with old friends and snapping our outfits while browsing the latest trends. Its probably the best time to network with other fashion bloggers and get yourself educated on the trends for future blog content, but this season it just wasn’t for me.  London Fashion Week is always the main event to most bloggers calendars.
