欢迎,你好!Sweet Chili is where I want to talk about art, photography, fashion, family, food, culture, traveling and other significant little things in my life. Any use of the pictures in the blog is welcome, as long as I'm aware of it and there's a clear reference to my site. 如需使用博客中的图文,只要标明来源到这里,我都非常欢迎!

I use English because I'm lazy, and this is a blog based on my other account with Blogger, link: www.sweetchilifashion.com. 我会在一些地方添加中文翻译或者新内容,但主体还是会和英文版博客相同。

苏格拉Gleneagles酒店的周末小旅程:新年好大家!感谢谅解我一整个十二月都没有更新了。一月份承诺勤奋起来,把之前的苏格兰+日本旅程都补上:精彩的内容真的很多!

这边是11月底的一个小周末,去了苏格兰中部。虽然英国也就巴掌点大,可是从伦敦驱车7小时北上,满眼的风景就全变了。这次因为只有短短两天半,就没有雄心勃勃地安排什么行程。整个周末选择就呆在酒店里,报名了一系列的户外活动:越野,骑射,远足等等,其余的时间就用来享受spa,和泡在酒吧里品尝各种当地的威士忌!

虽然行程短,可是由于天气寒冷,活动种类又相对繁杂,其实要打包的行李衣物并不简单。既要能够抵御户外活动时的严寒,同时达到穿脱活动起来的灵活。晚上在酒吧和餐厅时,又要能有稍微休闲精致一些的搭配,其实装箱时还是很挑战的。多层叠穿,比起一件厚重的御寒大衣,相对更合适户外活动多的旅程。同时人本身也成了行走的衣柜,一身搭配里包含了各种组合风格的可能性。

Happy new year all! As keen as I am to start new adventures of 2018, I have just a few more exciting travel pieces of 2017 to share with you here. Starting with this one:

The last trip I took before visiting Japan, was all the way up north in Scotland for a few days away with friends. We decided to brave the journey with a 7-hour road trip each way. After a bitter, long trip on a grey Sunday, we couldn't be happier to finally arrive in the dark at the warm (a little grander version of)home-from-home in the midland Gleneagles.

What used to be a popular choice for golf lovers, the classic & traditional resort has gone under a trendy makeover by the Hoxton group earlier this year. The resort ground is beautiful and packed with a wide range activities including golf(of course), hiking, cycling, shooting, horse-riding, off-road driving, gun dog training, tennis and more. It was irresistible to sign up for a few of those, while injecting some relaxing sessions of spa in between.

As you'll surely want to take some time admiring all the breathtaking scenery of the beautiful Scotland, it's better the equip yourself with the right gear to stay outdoors for a long period of time. For a warm, weather proof outfit during the day, remember to wear a water repellent hat+outer layerwelliesa good snuggly scarf and lots of layers underneath rather than just one thick coat.

Anticipating to brave the cold and step in mud for the day, and possibly dining in a fine dining restaurant/a highbrow bar for the night, the suitcase had to multi-function to the max.

My wardrobe has only just gone through the challenge of a trip to Iceland earlier this year, I was confident for the coldness during the day. And for the evenings, I threw in a satin skirt and a camisole top into the luggage. Separates allowed more combinations to be made: dressy skirt with a jumper; or a camisole top with a pair of jeans would both pass for most smart-casual dress codes. And when the two are combined, it becomes appropriate for any Michelin starred restaurant(which, by the way, happened to be one there within the hotel).

After a long, activity-filled day in the cold, it's only right to retrieve to the bar by evening. The American Bar is exactly what we need: a extensive list of cocktails, wines and whiskies, plus  the most heavenly freshly-made truffles that melt when they touch your tongue. The only complaint from me is that this bar closes on Mondays(it should never close). interior

If you're considering a visit to Scotland at some point this year, I truthfully recommend staying here. *NOT AN AD
