The White Company……Takes Miami

Flying the flag for The White Company* in the USA….

….*& not to forget, The Little White Company too!

cool bananas, cool banana blog, the white company, the little white company

A few weeks ago, the whole Bananas’ gang had the pleasure of visiting the Electric Cinema in Notting hill for a private screening of Disney’s Frozen, & a sneaky preview of the new season collection from The Little White Company. It couldn’t have come at a better time: With our family Vay-Kay to Miami on the horizon & a stay with friends taking over their house planned, I was on the hunt for some present inspiration (I’ll refer to our hosts as the ‘B’ family)

All my friends & family will tell you, I have a slight unhealthy obsession with the white company products, & their scented candles are in my opinion the best out there for ‘scent throw’ (that’s the technical term for how well they smell when you burn ‘em) I’m a Seychelles gal, through & through.

Mrs. B, being my TWC nemesis, is on a whole other level of White Company love…..in each room of their home, you’ll find a reed diffuser & candle combo, & nearly every scent ever produced by TWC on proud display. It kinda goes without saying: their house smells divine! On our previous jaunts across the globe to them (The Cayman isles last year) A Candle has always been my gift of choice. The same applied this year, only I came up trumps presenting them with a new kid on the block……

Morning Sunshine!

SO…after much anticipation, hours of preparation, a mammoth packing session, a ridiculously long rush-hour-busy Heathrow taxi ride, 2 plane journeys and another short drive….we arrived at our friends place on the warm isle of Grand Cayman! All in all nearly a 24 hour trip, Phew!¬†That makes me feel exhausted just writing it down. I think it was pure adrenaline that got us through our marathon travels, for the 2nd time this year! My darling boy only sleep for 3 hours out of the whole trip, resulting in a countless number of walks around the plane cabin. In contrast my other darling boy (aka. the old chap), fell asleep at absolutely every opportunity! Our first night’s sleep was without any jet lag interference (oh, the difference a good night’s sleep makes!). And with this view greeting you as you stumble out of bed in the morning, every sleep deprived and travel exhausting moment is worth while………

What better 'welcome to Cayman' could you ask for? The fuzz in the pic is our insect screen.........
