Our Hippie (happy) weekend on the Isle of Wight

We had the most wonderful weekend at Vintage Vacations and I’m hoping these few photos will give a feel of how wonderful, free and relax our weekend was on the Isle of Wight and will also inspire you to spend a fabulous weekend there with friends and family….For us, the experience was AWESOME, incredibly chilled out and has given us lots of happy memories to take back to London!I loved how Helen leaves scones, cream and jam for her guests in each Airstream. I also really loved that you can buy local products (jams with delightful, old-fashioned labels, Apple juices, fresh loafs of bread, eggs and bacon) and leave the money in a Honesty box .I was totally seduced by the little ‘shop in a hut’ Helen put together to sell vintage knick-knack and clothes and the wonderful, creative comments and drawings previous guests left in each Airstream….This weekend was truly wonderful…..

I’ve just booked 7 tickets to go and see Sex And The City 2 next week with some friends… and I’m so tempted by this Halston Heritage white dress available from One Boutique…Sooo tempted…woman STEP AWAY FROM THE KEYBOARD!Update:Last night, after watching ‘The Good Wife‘ (don’t you love that show?!), I spent a bit more time on One Boutique checking out their Sale section and discovered these….a pair of gorgeous Penelope Chilvers Angel boots at £277.50 instead of £370 and since then I have been pondering about whether I should get them or not.Frankly if they were £100 cheaper, I would have gone for them without thinking about it twice but I bought myself 3 pairs of boots this year and it’s only June, I still only have two feet and the price…arrhhhhgh is killing me…..
