Let’s welcome Chelsea In Bloom of the season 2024!
The annual street flower show Chelsea In Bloom, which takes place between the 20th and 26th of May alongside the Chelsea Flower Show of the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS), returns to Chelsea once again.

This year, creativity has flown over to a new installation theme: the Floral Feasts.

The majority of the Chelsea in Bloom festival displays are spread through Sloane Square, Sloane Street, Pavilion Road, Duke of York Square, and King’s Road. I’ve collected the most impressive displays of the restaurants and shops participating in the event—have a glimpse of them below.

🔹There are a few of the most popular sites where the characters are incorporated into the Floral feast displays. See the Lady and the Tramp stand, Winnie the Pooh with friends, and a Giant Hungry Caterpillar!

🔹Hackett, Sticks’N’Sushi and The Ivy Chelsea Garden always steal the show. At the same time, The Lloyds bank has placed a gorgeous black horse, the bank’s symbol, chewing a carrot along a market stall.

🔹Take note of jewellery brands Astrid & Miyu with their Dolce display, the Nereides with the Strawberry display, Granado with a head wearing a Brazilian headpiece decorated with fruits, and English market by Varley.

🔹British tea traditions and picnics were among the most popular as well. Think of the tea and sweets feast behind the Royal Ascot by LK Bennett, the Tea Party by RIXO, and the scones with clotted cream and jam from Penhaligons.

🔹You might also like Lollies by Moyses Stevens and Candy Floss on the Pavilion Road, as well as Skincare products bursting with flowers, Beauty Banquet by The SpaceNK.

🎉🎉🎉The winners are announced on May 21st, while the People’s Champion Award winner is announced on May 24th.

My article with more info goes life at tonight.

Tonight my blog about our trip to Bali goes live at, don’t forget to check it out!
📍St Regis, Bali #purpurpurpur_hotels

Everyone thinks about villas with a pool when visiting Bali, so we chose the St Regis as a site for our refuge.🌺🌺🌺

This is the epitome of a luxury resort you can even think of: well cared for territory, a few restaurants, interior highlighting the Balinese heritage, daily traditional music and frangipani flowers.🌿🌿

We stayed in fantastic private Gardenia Villa, which had a bedroom and a large bathroom, all decorated in Balinese style. Fresh fruit deliveries were a cherry on top (pun intended) and George received a wide arrange of kids gifts from the hotel.

Just take a moment to appreciate the beautiful details of the villa in St Regis: isn’t it just perfect?

Our villa is just a few minutes away from the beach and the Indian Ocean.🐠🪼🦀

Tap to save the main attractions of Ayutthaya, the ancient capital of Siam!

1.Wat Yai Chai Mongkhon with a large stupa and reclining Buddha (the temple is in use) Get your wish granted throwing a coin into a well here!

2. Wat Ratchaburana has the most beautiful and well preserved corn-shaped prang (it’s a famous architectural element of Ayutthaya style)

3.The temple Wat Mahathat: find here the stone Buddha head entangled by tree roots 

4. Wat Phra Si Sanphet, the most important temple of Ayutthaya back in time: it has three large stupas containing the ashes of Ayutthaya kings

5. Wat Mongkhon Bophit (the large Buddha statue is under reconstruction now) 

6. Wat Chaiwatthanaram - the most cinematic temple where many movies were shot 

7.Elephant Kraal of Ayutthaya -  you can still find elephants here in Ayutthaya: you can ride them here and feed them as well. We’re personally against riding elephants so we just observed those wonderful animals.

8. Lak Mueang, a modern white monument dedicated to City Pillars
