The Kensington Hotel and Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty

















When we visited London last week we were lucky enough to stay in the amazing Kensington Hotel. It was pretty much luxury defined - the bathroom (that marble! *can't cope emoji*) had underfloor heating (a dream when you've just stepped out of the shower), there was a James Bond-style whisky cupboard and even a TV to watch whilst having a bath. Those fudgy treats in the first image above were also absolutely delicious - I couldn't even wait to take a photo before sampling them all.

Whilst staying, we were treated to a 'Fashion Forward Afternoon Tea' inspired by the V&A's Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibition which was such a cool idea, so pretty and taste-wise, defintely the best afternoon tea I've ever tried. We then headed to the V&A which was about a 10 minute walk away and had a guided tour of the exhibition, which was so interesting. I must confess I wasn't a massive fan of Alexander McQueen before - I liked bits and bobs but the exhibition definitely changed my mind and opened my eyes. Lee McQueen was such a creative, innovative person and his death was a huge loss to the fashion industry. Sadly photos weren't allowed at the exhibition but to be honest I doubt my amateur photos would have done it justice (check out Susie's post  to see some)! If you get a chance to see the exhibition I couldn't recommend it enough.

  1. Great photography. I've never had the pleasure of staying at the Kensington Hotel, but I've heard such amazing things about it and well yours pictures are pretty self-explanatory - G O R G E O U S. Is it sad for me to say I want to stay there just to experience the gorgeous heated and marble flooring? Oh well, because I do. Lucky you!!!
