Weekend Reading #17 – Travel Hack

I had a pretty calm week this week. Well, I couldn’t be more relaxed when I have a 3 month old baby, but I’m also renovating my house and expanding my blog to include my entire team of bloggers.

My £6 million Notting Hill townhouse {Vicky flip flops}

While I was at Blogtacular, Vicky came along as my +1. We both live outside of London so we stayed for one night before a conference.

What I didn’t expect was her four-storey townhouse just off Portobello Road. It was amazing. Just look at the pictures and you’ll see what I mean.
