Beauty is in the eye of the beholder

The concept of beauty changes a lot over time. What is considered beautiful or on-trend is continually shifting. Sometimes we want skinny eyebrows, which all the models have and then unexpectedly we have to grow them all back because now the new trend is huge, bushy, eyebrows thanks to likes of Cara Delevingne. Last year we saw a beauty contradiction: while loads of women adopted new, painstakingly intricate makeup routines of an expert level, Alicia Keys sparked a ‘no makeup’ movement when she stopped wearing anything on her face at award shows and red carpets. With so many changes, it’s hard for us to keep up. In the last few years, the beauty industry has seen an influx of lotions and potions, all promising to protect the skin against environmental factors.  In addition, we have seen interest grow from women who want to know exactly what is in their products and looking for greener and cleaner choices. With so many […]

Find your perfect wedding venue

Choosing your wedding venue is one of the most important decisions you will make when planning your wedding.  You will always remember where you were when you said “yes”, surrounded by your family and friends. Also, venues are not cheap, so you want to make sure you make the correct decision. Here are few things to consider … The theme and style of your wedding First of all, you should think about the style and theme of your wedding as the venue will set the tone of the ambiance on your special day. Would you like to get married in an exotic destination or in your hometown?

FIVE STAR LUXURY WITH CHRISTMAS AT THE RITZ

Christmas is the most special time of the year at the hotel. The main attraction at Christmas is our showstopper tree, which takes pride of place in the hotel lobby.   Our special tree takes a whole seven hours to decorate and even scaffolding is needed to fix all of the ornaments and lights in place, as it is a staggering 25ft tall. The journey of our Christmas tree starts earlier in the year when our florist Paul Thomas travels to the Highlands to handpick our tree from a choice of three which are all especially grown for us. Paul also starts planning and selecting our Christmas decorations months in advance and travels to Paris to handpick a selection of unique ornaments. Our Christmas decorations have always been traditional to match the interiors of the stunning building, they sparkle and drip in gold and velvet. There are over 10,000 decorations which are green, gold and red and over 6,500 lights make […]

The Best Theatre Shows in London

The Ritz is in a great location to visit London’s West End and to take in one of the award-winning shows, musicals or cutting-edge plays on offer.   The theatre is a magical place to escape and enter a new world.  Our concierge team will be more than happy to book you tickets in advance as we believe no trip to London is complete without experiencing the theatre! We have selected a few of the top shows being performed now to help you make a decision. ALADDIN This Disney classic is being shown at the Prince Edward Theatre.  The musical extravaganza has bright costumes with multi-coloured sequins and gems that sparkle, a lavish Middle Eastern set showcasing the magical flying carpet scene and classic songs such as “Arabian Nights” and the romantic favourite “A Whole New World” as well as new songs especially written for this production. Aladdin is great quality entertainment for all the family. © Disney THE CURIOUS INCIDENT […]

MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN PERU AND THE UK WITH SPRINGBOARD CHARITY

From 11th-23rd March 2016 myself and 37 keen trekkers all from the UK hospitality industry visited one of the most isolated regions of Peru to partake in the Springboard UK charity trek and community project.  The Ritz London sent two members of staff, Ben Heke from the security team and myself from the marketing team.  Ben and I spent the previous four months fundraising with the target of £3,200 each to go towards the work Springboard does in the UK.  My fundraising activities included baking, knitting, auctions, cycle rides, coffee mornings and even a pub quiz. ARRIVAL IN PERU After a long and tiring twenty six hour journey, we arrived at Cusco city, nestled between the Andes Mountains and at an altitude of 3,400m it was once the capital of the Inca Empire.  When we arrived at the hotel we organised and divided the clothes and toy donations for the three schools we were going to visit and got ready […]

THE RITZ LONDON’S PARTNERSHIP WITH CLEANCONSCIENCE

DID YOU KNOW? Every day hotels worldwide discard millions of bars of soap. Every year 1.7 million children die worldwide from disease and infection. Half a million of these children could still be alive if they simply had soap to wash their hands. The plastic used for hotel toiletries is manufactured from expensive recyclable Polyethylene terephthalate or High-density polyethylene. Unfortunately, empty or half-full bottles cannot currently be recycled and end up in landfill or incinerated. The facts above are what pushed Gwen Powell to establish the not-for-profit CleanConscience in July 2015, having successfully founded an on-site food waste recycling company in 2009, kompost ltd. WHY DID YOU SET UP CLEANCONSCIENCE? “It was a challenge by a client of kompost ltd, my other start-up, that brought to my attention the scale of the soap and toiletry ‘waste’ in the world, and that here in the UK there was no infrastructure in place to enable hotels to take part in a recycling […]
