Looking through my phone photo’s I was just reminiscing one of the most enjoyable weekends we spent on our sister island every year with family, in a hotel which keeps getting better every year. It’s absolute heaven on earth.
This year was thankfully no different. The Kempinski San Lawrenz is in our sister island Gozo and it is a haven of pure genuine décor, food and service. The Maltese cream lime stone which it is built with makes it feel fresh and clean, the array of typical vintage wood furniture gives it a warm feel, the chandeliers, restaurants are sophisticated, rooms are large scented with floral perfume, crisp bedding and i could go on and on! So I’m going to save you from further details, cause i could go on! You Know… (did I tell you it is set in a valley with their own organic produce!)
Days where spent doing things in slow motion. Eating lovely food, swimming in their gorgeous pool, sunbathing with multiple amounts of sun screen, reading , having afternoon siestas and eat a bit more. After we spent the day soaking the sun I made sure that I gave my self time to be a proper girl girl that spends a good hour or so getting ready.
Oh photos how many memories you bring…I think I am going to try enter the screen into the pictures, does that work?
The view from the deck chair I named “lover” for obvious reason.
Don’t judge me but after some pool time, and after I had a shower ;yes I did sit in the balcony with a cup of tea, Hersey’s, paprika sticks and watched a couple of YouTube namely Viviannadoesmakeup! (My friends call me a nerd, I think I get why now…)
Before dinner the nerd turns into a Cinderella and is ready to show her face to the world. One of my favourite cocktails is a “Kinnito” this is a base of Mojito but adding a Maltese soft drink called “kinnie” (this is a blend of orange and aromatic herbs)! Fabulosooooo
As I said I enjoyed the sun very much ,spent some quality time with my hubby and I also made time to experiment with make up and hair. Made sure that my dinner outfits where very feminine and light. The blue lace and silk dress is a beloved purchase from Asos which has been a staple for summer chilly evenings. The wine is another beloved of mine. FACT!
