Last month, the wonderful team from Curvy Kate swept me off to the swanky Chelsea Harbour Hotel in London in order to get a sneak peak of their first ever Autumn/Winter bikini range.
We spent the morning in the Blue Harbour Spa with its sauna, steam room and what I imagine to be usually peaceful serenity pool (when it's not full of bloggers and CK girls pretending to be mermaids and leaving bum prints on the wall...) We were then given an incredible hand massage - I hold a LOT of tension in my forearms allegedly, it's all the activities I do. I honestly left feeling like I could quite happily be a rich person for a day or two without feeling too bad about it.
After some extreme splashing, ducking and heavy petting, we were fed and watered on the stunning terrace, overlooking the harbour and a plethora of probably really inexpensive yachts...
Seriously, the Chelsea Harbour hotel is A-MAZING. I have NEVER been anywhere so smart (Not even the Hull Campamile is at this level). The decor is breathtaking, the staff are wonderful and the service is utterly flawless. We even had a tour of one of the penthouse apartments which had to be seen to be believed.
|FOOD. There was also big food made small in the form of mini burgers which I didn't photo because I was dagnamn eating it.|
On the day, I wore the Plain Sailing underwired, padded plunge bikini top and Plain Sailing Fold brief which I utterly adore - Keep your eyes open for a full review very shortly! There was such a range of gorgeous body shapes on the day and the range truly has something for everyone. My girl Kate looked PHENOMENAL in the tankini and skirted brief and the ever decadent Nancy killed it in glamorous monochrome. Seriously, there were so many babes there looking breathtaking - If you don't believe me, take a look on the CK instagram.

Thank you so much to Curvy Kate, Figleaves, Chelsea Harbour Hotel and the Blue Harbour Spa for an incredible day. If you ever need someone to jump into your pool in exchange for tiny burgers again, I'm your woman.
