The Brogue With a Twist

If your guy loves a classic shoe, the Rothko brogues from Base London come with a tweedy twist in the form of a cool inlay. In sizes 6 to 12 they’re available in 5 inlaid styles and 7 colourways without the inlay. It’s the pièce de résistance from the Base London Artist range and will look great with winter wool suit for some super dapper styling.

Price £74.99

The Caterham 7 310R

Craig introduces us to the stunning Caterham 7 310 sports car

As cars go, the Caterham stands out from the crowd, breaks the mould and offers a totally different driving experience. For today’s post I want to share my experience of the Caterham 7 310R. An epic ride for those that want something totally different from the standard saloon.

Based directly on the original Lotus 7, this car takes you back in time. Compact, lightweight and crazy fast, this nippy little racer will take you from 0-60 in a tarmac blistering 4.9 seconds. Quoted by Caterham themselves as a ‘happy accident’ the 310R comes with an upgraded 1.6-litre Ford Sigma engine and an extra 20bhp.

The stunning Belmond Reid’s Palace Hotel, set in a stunning cliff edge

With some of the most stunning views across Madeira, the Belmond Reid’s Palace Hotel nestles gently on the edge of a beautiful cliff top in all its luxurious pink glory. Noted as one of the most famous Hotels in the world, frequented by none other than Sir Winston Churchill himself, it was an honour to have three wonderful nights here. Welcome to the Belmond Reid’s Palace Hotel

Belmond Reid’s Palace spans a large area of the cliff edge in Madeira

While a little ‘normal’ and unassuming from the roadside, the second you step beyond its doors you are transported to a different era. One of decadence and indulgence, of class, elegance and taste. This Hotel was not built to be enjoyed from the road, but from the sea, where you are afforded the magical spectacle of its perfect cliff top position.

With 158 beautifully styled and decorated rooms, 4 restaurants (1 with a Michelin star), 3 pools, a spa, a sauna, and its own tennis courts, it is the perfect escape. Take afternoon tea on the picturesque terrace, enjoy perfect poached eggs and a bucks fizz for breakfast while overlooking the Atlantic ocean, or explore Funchal with the Hotel as your base. The choices are yours.
