How exciting… it’s around a month until my BIG FOUR ZERO, yes – 40 years old and I can’t wait! The countdown is on! This year I really wanted to do something memorable and special, but include my partner, friends and Ted. I’m heading to Ibiza in September with some of my besties but a favourite few can’t make it, so I’m doing something closer to home for my actual birthday. I first visited this place back at the end of May and it was an instant hit, I wondered why it had taken me 39 years to discover the special place that is the Isle of Wight!
Exotic like far away shores it might not be, but it has a special pull factor, little powers of its own that are unique, addictive and difficult to explain. So for my 40th birthday I’m heading back to the place I fell in love with a few months back, but this time we’re going en masse! We’ve rented an old barn nestled in a beautiful orchard and thankfully away from close civilisation just in case it gets slightly rowdy (whilst I don’t intend to disturb the peaceful surroundings, a loud chorus of happy birthday is allowed).
If you’ve never been, it’s a magical place that’s bustling with nature, sweeping green hillsides and spectacular sandy beaches that are lapped by crystal clear coastal waters – nature at its best if you will. So I’d love nothing more than to have a surf in the IOW on my birthday which has now just become slightly more exciting because I recently heard the beach I’m going to has just been named fourth in Britain’s top spots for spotting sharks!The Isle of Wight is also the home of award-winning skincare range Liz Earle, all naturally inspired from the island and designed to transform the appearance of the skin. With over half of the island designated an area of outstanding natural beauty, from the stunning landscape and varied flora and fauna, to the healthy outlook on life, the island is a constant source of inspiration to all.
