A Blissful Easter Break

06 April 2010

We're guessing a large number of you did like us and headed out of London and for the hills this weekend.  After all, what better way to spend a few days than having a few generous feeds with the family away from the hustle and bustle of the city? For one Grazia Beauty girl this meant a complicated grapple with public transport to get down to Somerset - home of Glastonbury, pear cider and of course every beauty girl's fave: Babington House Hotel & Spa.  Inevitably, there followed much R&R, roaring fires, country walks and smooches with the family dog... Bliss.

Babington old-timers will also be aware that no trip to the hotel is complete without a stroll down the uber trendy Catherine Hill in nearby Frome where, tucked away, you'll discover a veritable bevy of the coolest vintage and craft shops outside of London. 

Here, nuzzling in Make and Mend on Saturday we discovered a host of fabulous vintage beauty goodies we couldn't help but share with you this morning. Just wonderful!
