The Ritz, London - hotel review 

Evening Standard
First opened in 1906 by Swiss hotelier César Ritz, today The Ritz remains one of the most iconic hotels in the world and with good reason. Lavish and decoratively mesmerising, footmen will usher you into a world of no-decadence-spared luxury. Steeped in history but still a golden grid-entry for the jet-set and fash pack's Instagrams, the hotel is as relevant today as it was when it first swung open its doors all those years ago. Where is it? Situated in historic Piccadilly, the hotel is a 10-minute walk to Bond Street and Oxford Circus and within a stone's throw of the Royal Academy and Green Park. Style The bathroom (Leading Hotels of the World) As decadent as you would hope, The Ritz is the embodiment of a proper world-class hotel. Enter the lobby via the revolving doors and your foot will instantly rise on the impossibly plush carpet. Through the chandelier-lit Long Gallery, which is adorned with vast bouquets of fragrant roses, you'll head up to your room via a hand painted lift. Read more The Berkeley Hotel review: The creme-de-la-glam of Knightsbridge Recently renovated, The Ritz has (thankfully) avoided the temptation to go modern and has stayed true to its heritage. The famed Palm Court, clad in a glowing light of sherbet lemon and pink, remains an art-deco heaven. In the rooms, you'll find floral wallpapers, heavy-silk cornflower blue curtains, dusty pink marble bathrooms with embossed 'The Ritz' taps and vast velvet Chesterfield headboards. Facilities The Ritz has all the amenities you would expect from one of the Leading Hotels of the World. There's a spa, fitness centre and a kids club but perhaps the most ritzy place is the Casino. Located on the bottom floor, The Ritz Club is a gilded den of opulence. Made up of connected chambers, guests of the hotel are welcome to play on the various slot machines or try their luck on the card tables. It's certainly worth getting a strong cocktail at the private bar if gambling's not your thing. The people watching potential is something else. Food & Drink The Ritz Restaurant (Leading Hotels of the World) You cannot stay at The Ritz and not experience the afternoon tea. It's legendary for a reason. Penguin-suited butlers will pour you a glass of champagne as you browse the twenty-plus blends of fresh teas to choose from. Tiers of fascinator cakes, bouncy warm scones and perfectly sliced triangle sandwiches will shortly appear in front of you, replenished as soon as you've taken your last bite. Read more The Connaught Hotel, Mayfair London - review For breakfast, you'll head to the dining room which could rival some of Europe's finest houses. Marble columns line the walls, the cornices are gilded and the room is adorned with frescoes. The breakfast spread is as elaborate as its setting. A grand table in the centre of the dining room is stacked with various tiers groaning under the weight of handcrafted pastries, Scottish smoked salmon and lemon wedges, Bircher muesli of all varieties and scores of Continental platters. Whenever you do, go hungry. Which room? A Suite Bedroom (Leading Hotels of the World) If spending over one thousand pounds a night to stay in the Piccadilly Suite is out of your budget, then opting for the Deluxe King room is a perfect alternative. The rooms are still lavish with their own seating area and large marble bathrooms and the decor is suitably powdery with a colour scheme of blues, yellows, pinks and peaches. Make sure to ask for the highest available floor to really take advantage of the hotel's spectacular views of the city. Best for A one-off night of pure decadence. Whether you go with a partner or a friend, go with something to celebrate. This is the occasion to really go all out. Details Rooms start from £320 per night excluding breakfast. The Deluxe King rooms at The Ritz start from £501 per night. The Ritz is a member of the Leading Hotels of the World. Find out more here.... read more

The Chedi, Oman - hotel review 

Evening Standard
One of the Leading Hotels of the World, it's no wonder people reply with a instant "lucky you", when they find out you're staying at The Chedi. Built in 2003 as Muscat's first 5* hotel, 15 years later it's retained its reputation of unparalleled luxury and continues to draw international crowds. A design hotel at its heart, it's architecture and grounds are just one of the many reason to check in to this beach-front haven. Where is it? The Chedi (Leading Hotels of the World) A 15 minute drive from Muscat airport and 20 minutes north of Old Muscat, The Chedi couldn't be more conveniently located for travellers. Sat just back from a busy main road, at first you may assume you've come to the wrong place when drawing up but keep going and you'll enter a long drive, shouldered by pristine lawns, that winds down to the property, far away from the hustle and bustle. Style Blending minimalism with Arabic influence, the hotel is made up of low-rise, Omani-style white, square houses, that spread out across the hotel's 21-acres. Read more 10 reasons why you should visit Oman When you arrive, you'll enter the lobby which opens out to a huge dome-shaped room and carry on to outside. The gardens are sublime with date palms clustered throughout and flower beds filled with endemic flora and fauna from across the Emirates. Sporadic water ponds punctuate the lawns and gently arched hallways lead you through the winding paths of the open space. Inside the room's interiors are a blend of linen white and dark mahogany with subtle wooden features taking centre stage. If you have a sea-facing view, you'll be able to look out across the Gulf of Oman towards the majestic Hajar Mountains each morning. Facilities The famous 103 metre pool (Leading Hotels of the World) The Chedi isn't lacking anything when it comes to facilities. It has a tennis court, a gym (the most stylish I've ever seen), a 13-suite Asian-style spa, a private beach, and three swimming pools - one of which is the longest in the region. 103 meters, the pool stretches out towards the sea and is lined by palm trees and day beds. The pool staff will bring you mini-fridges filled with alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages so you can soak up the sun while enjoying a little mid-afternoon tipple. Food & Drink The restaurant's courtyard (Leading Hotels of the World) The Chedi only has one main restaurant but saves itself from becoming routine by the sheer size of its menu. You can order dishes that hail from all corners of the globe, from Oman to Thailand, Britain to India. The all-important hotel breakfast is impressive. A buffet-style set-up, you can opt for a super healthy option such as fresh fruit, juices and made-to-order egg white omelettes or go all out and indulge in pastries, granola, pancakes and Eggs Florentine. Admittedly the food isn't cheap but when comparing to other top-tier hotel restaurants in the city, it's no exception. Which room? We stayed in one of the beachfront suites and if you're holidaying for a special occasion, this is worth saving up for. Read more Six Senses Zighy Bay, Oman - hotel review Totally private, each suite comes with a spacious living room, large master bedroom, bathroom complete with a sunk-in terrazzo bathtub and double sink (always a winner) as well as a private terrace so you can relax completely alone if that takes your fancy. When you book a suite, you receive Club Benefits which means you have a completely free-of-charge minibar and enjoy complimentary access to the lounge. This is where paying extra really comes in. The lounge host a complimentary afternoon tea each day with handmade macaroons, paper-thin sliced cucumber sandwiches and cakes. At night, you can sit in the courtyard, under the stars as fruit bats fly in between the palm trees, and enjoy the complimentary cocktail and canapes evening. In a country where it's not unusual for a glass of house wine to be upwards of £18, this is always welcome. Extra Curriculum Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque (Alamy Stock Photo) Heading out from the hotel to explore Muscat and the surrounding areas is a no-brainer but hiring a guide is absolutely the best way to do it. Old Muscat Tourism is the leading tour operator in Oman and one of the best guiding experiences I've ever had. They can create tailor-made itineraries whether you want an afternoon or a couple of weeks exploring. Read more Oman on four wheels: a road trip around the Sultanate Started by Khalid Al Rawahi , who previously worked alongside the Sultan, his knowledge of the country's history as well as its recent development is astonishing. From The Chedi, they can arrange for you to go swimming with turtles and spinner dolphins, visit the Grand Mosque, visit the famous Souks (traditional markets), drive out to the desert and explore both the Old and New city. The guide will pick you up from the hotel and organise all transfers and tickets. Best for Anyone looking for a proper break. There really is no other way to describe The Chedi than complete heaven. If you're looking for that "get away from it all" feeling, staying here will give you just that. How to get there BA flies from London Heathrow to Muscat (flight time is 7 hours and 15 minutes). Prices start from £322. Find out more at ba.com. Details Rooms start from £203 per night including breakfast. The suites start from £520 per night.

Unfold is the app you need to make your Instagram Stories pop 

Evening Standard
After launching just under two years ago, Instagram Stories is one of the most popular features on the photo-sharing app. Last November, it was revealed that Stories now has 300 million daily active users. With all those Stories around, you want to ensure that your version stands out in the crowd. Enter Unfold. The app launched in January this year is focused on curating your Instagram Story, with a range of slick designs you can include to make your video, boomerang or image look professional. Read more Instagram unveils new app IGTV for longer videos Unfold recently topped three million downloads in only six months and was even featured at Apple's recent WWDC keynote. Headed up by Alfonso Cobo (CEO) and Andy McCune (COO) who are 25 and 23 respectively, we spoke to the duo to find out where Unfold came from and what's next for the popular app. L-R: Andy McCune, COO, and Alfie Cobo, CEO, of Unfold (Unfold) The inspiration for Unfold came from Cobo during his time at university. He was supposed to be attending a career fair and tried to find an app that would help him create a quick portfolio to showcase his design and photography for potential employers. Read more 30 London Instagram accounts you need to follow now "Usually there's an app for everything. But I couldn't find anything in the App Store," he tells the Standard. So, he decided to make his own, which became Portafolio. Then, as Instagram Stories began picking up traction, Cobo decided to pivot to offering something for the app's growing user base. "People don't want to showcase their work in a private portfolio, they want to showcase it to the world. They want to tell the stories behind their work and they want it to be seen," he says. McCune became involved with Unfold after him met Cobo through Instagram incidentally, after bonding over Stories. As a result, the whole business has grown from their love of social media, but also the desire to offer something more to the community. Unfold has easy-to-use templates to make your images pop on Stories (Unfold) "We built Unfold for people like us who wanted to tell stories in a thoughtful and curated way, and we felt like we needed a more design-focused tool to support that," they say. Unfold isn't just for Instagram. You can use the platform to curate Stories across other social networks, such as Facebook and Snapchat. But, it is Instagram Stories where the duo are seeing the tools used the most. So far, Unfold counts influencers such as Zoella amongst its fans, as well as brands including Vogue and Revolve which are using the app. Cobo and McCune say they think this comes down to the inherent human desire to be creative. Read more 30 London Instagram accounts you need to follow now "Social media is this constant battle to stand out from the crowd. Unfold allows people to create and express themselves in way that's simple and intuitive and we think that is the reason people have responded so well." The app only launched in January but is already profitable. Unfold makes money through its premium collections, available to purchase on the app, though the duo say they are exploring ways to work more with brands as a way to diversify and grow Unfold their revenue. Alongside this, they are working on growing and improving the app every day. "We're learning every day how users craft and share their stories," they say. "They want their voice to be heard and to connect with people from their community, and we're building and growing accordingly." Unfold is available to download on iOS and Android... read more

Sarah Hyland hospitalized, shares photo of swollen face 

US Weekly
Sarah Hyland doesn't hold back when it comes to updating fans on her ongoing health battles. Celebrity Health Scares The 27-year-old Modern Family star revealed in a Thursday, June 21, Instagram Story that she was forced to put her work on hold for a health scare. "Sometimes a selfie is more than just a good angle or feelin cute. This time for #NationalSelfieDay, I've decided to share my truth. As painful as it is," the actress captioned a photo of her swollen face. "So here is my face that was torn from work against my will. But I'm very grateful it was. Health should always come first." In a second Story, Hyland confirmed that she was hospitalized on Monday, June 18, and added that her beloved dog, Boo, knew something was wrong. Stars Who Have Bared Their Souls About Their Struggles "Can't wait to come back to my precious angel princess. She's perfect and knows exactly what I need at all times," she wrote alongside a video of the pup giving her kisses."This was taken this past Sunday. Day before hospitalization. She was literally telling me to get treatment." The actress had been working on the comedy film The Wedding Year when she became ill, an insider tells Us Weekly. Though Hyland didn't disclose what she is currently suffering from, she has previously been open about the life-saving kidney transplant she underwent in 2012 and her battle with a medical condition that caused her to lose muscle mass. Celebs Fight Back on Twitter! The Candie's creative director hit back at commenters in May 2017 after being accused of promoting anorexia , revealing her thin frame is due to ongoing health issues. "My circumstances have put me in a place where I'm not in control of what my body looks like. I am working hard to maintain my weight by eating as much protein as possible and continue to be STRONG and healthy," she wrote on Twitter. "There's no need to worry! I've been down before and I'll probably be down again in my lifetime but I'm steadfast and solid and will conquer my obstacles." She continued, "It's never fun to look in the mirror and see your hard work at the gym fade away or have your legs be the size of one's arms," In a 2015 interview with Seventeen Magazine, the Geek Charming alum revealed that she was "born with so many health issues."... read more
