BUTLER AND WILSON

On my various travels, I always look for unique and special shops, something a little bit different.

So when I was in London a week ago I stumbled into this shop as I was walking around little back streets of London.

I was absolutely blown away with their collection and the interior of their shop.

Butler & Wilson have come a long way since they began selling jewellery on the markets of the King’s Road in 1969.

If you are in London please make sure you visit the shop!

Alternatively, you can order online take a look at their website here.

I bought an amazing unique jacket and Elephant neck piece, panda ring and another necklace- all really unique and absolutely stunning.

WILD WALL CHALLENGE 2012

By | CHARITY, TRAVEL | No Comments
china

My first challenge ever for charity was Walking the Great wall of China and raising money for kids.

Wild Wall Challenge 2012
Beijing, China
18 – 26 May, 2012
Trekking

This was G4G’s 38th challenge.
Up to 25 people joined us for 6 days of hiking along the most spectacular sections of the Great Wall of China.
Passing through farmland, valleys, mountains, ancient tombs and quiet villages, the route involved gently undulating sections, but also some steep and rocky terrain, requiring scrambling to reach the most impressive parts of the wild wall. We stayed in small local hotels, as well as home-stays.

I must say, there are no words to express the gratitude, happiness and sense of accomplishment I felt after a wonderful and meaningful challenge. Well, worth the cause, and definitely a challenge within the challenge!

Walking on the wall of China and claiming nearly 30,000 stairs a day was super challenging, and I must say my knee after the challenge was numb for almost a month.

Visiting the lovely children at the end of the challenge made every gasp for breath and every sore muscle SO much worth it! I am just very glad to know that the realization of what we went through, experienced and wonderfully lived came to life and reality when I held those children in my arms! Very overwhelming! An experience like no other!

Funds raised by the Wild Wall Challenge 2012 was used to complete an aqua therapy pool for the Bethel Foundation, a Beijing charity that provides foster care, education and training for visually impaired children in China.

The pool will provide Aqua Therapy for 60 visually impaired children living at the Love Is Blind Village plus swimming lessons for another 200 orphans from 4 orphanages in the vicinity.
Blind children often find it hard to understand how to move their bodies, making it difficult to learn to move or plan their movements. These children often kick their legs or hit themselves in an attempt to get the feedback they are missing.

Here are some of the photos of the unforgettable experience!
Challenge yourself, experience the wild, risk your life and give back to those who really need your help.

We as a group raised over 120,000 USD for the kids on Beijing.

SQUEEZING IN THAT LAST DAY OF SHOPPING

By | TRAVEL
SHOPPING
SHOPPING

Just a quick update, lazy day shopping in Beirut in one of my favourite animal T-shirts. I found one of my favourite shops AISHTY so, obviously had to buy myself something. All in all, a very good day shopping.

In the evening we went to an amazing bar called Pacifico, it was a garden bar so I went with a nice summery outfit.
To finish the night off, there was a firework display, it was beautiful.

SHOPPING AND JAZZ CLUBS

By | TRAVEL
JAZZ

Quick update from Beirut, lunch, shopping and then to a fantastic Jazz club.

Started off the day with a special lunch, one of the best meals ever, Lebanese food is always really good, I love it.
Finished lunch with some Turkish coffee.

After lunch I went out for a little bit of shopping and to buy my host some flowers for being so amazing. It was lovely just walking around Beirut, it’s such a beautiful city.

I took a few photo of my outfit for you all, pretty simple, a white crop top and my Ellery trousers. The perfect outfit for chilling in the city.

As the sunset, we got ready for the evening, decided we would head to a Jazz club which I was really looking forward to. The view out of the window is just stunning, I could sit and look all day. Mafusa also seems to be enjoying the view.

We ended up in a lovely little Jazz bar called the Blue Note Cafe. They host a selection of local and international jazz celebrities and musicians every week.

It was a lovely night and of course to finish it off CosmoPolly was on stage.

BEIRUT HERE I COME

BEIRUT

Hello from Beirut, I’m on another CosmoPolly adventure. I have so many lovely memories from Beirut, I’ve been coming here for the past 25 years but my last trip was 2011, so I’ve definitely left it too long. After being invited to visit a friend I packed my bags and was ready to go.

After unpacking I chose to wear my white outfit for the coming night. Before I move on to what we got up to, I just want to share the fabulous wardrobe I was given to use. Amazing, it’s my dream walk-in wardrobe.

Once we were ready, we headed to MusicHall Beirut to grab a few drinks, have a good catch up and watch the show. It was amazing, if you are ever in Beirut I would recommend this.

Overall a lovely first evening in Beirut,

Till next time,

Cosmo

MY BULGARIA, MY STORY

By | TRAVEL | No Comments

So I have finally reached the end of my holiday in Bulgaria. I have had a fantastic time and hope you have enjoyed sharing my experiences with me. Before I leave I wanted to share with a few of my favourite things about Bulgaria.

So come in and take a look around.

Everywhere you look there is history which I find so interesting, especially because it’s my country’s history.

Everywhere you look there is something beautiful, a country you can easily fall in love with.

Hello, it’s my Bulgaria. I hope you have enjoyed seeing and learning about my home country. If you get the chance I cannot express how much I would advise visiting Bulgaria.

Miss you Bulgaria,

Cosmo

Today’s post is all about our trip to the beautiful ski resort, Borovets situated in the Rila mountain which is about an hours drive from Sofia. Obviously, there was no snow as we are in the middle of summer but there was a range of activities on offer.

We started off the day with a beautiful walk around the mountain and in the woods. The contrast from the winter was amazing, it really was hard to believe that just last winter the floor would have been a blanket of crisp white snow.

SKI RESORT SUMMER

For lunch we chose Bulgare, a restaurant at the Borovets Ski Resort. Its was very nice, they serve a mix of traditional and European food and the service was excellent.

SKI RESORT SUMMER

Later that afternoon we decided to try the horseback trekking. It was an amazing experience trekking through the mountains the scenery was stunning and there was so much wildlife, it was extremely peaceful and a great way to spend the day.

NESEBAR ANOTHER DAY ANOTHER BEAUTIFUL TOWN

By | TRAVEL | No Comments
NESEBAR

Another day, another beautiful ancient town, Nesebar. After visiting the stunning town of Sozopol we were inspired to visit another. We chose to visit Nessebar which was about an hour drive from Sozopol.

NESEBAR

NESEBAR

Nesebar is an ancient town and one of the major seaside resorts on the Bulgarian Black Sea Coast, located in Burgas Province. Often referred to as the “Pearl of the Black Sea”, Nesebar is a rich city-museum defined by more than three millennia of ever-changing history. Walking around this beautiful little town was mesmerising, you almost felt as if you had been transported back in time.

NESEBAR

Overall, it was a lovely day spent with family.

Ps. Find out about my outfit here in my outfit of the day post.
