Last Thursday our managing director, Tracey and I were lucky enough to visit Macdonald Craxton Wood. Macdonald Spa Hotels is a client of Spa PR and we were delighted when the £2 million spa and wellness investment at this Cheshire spa hotel was announced. After an easy train journey from London to Chester we arrived at the hotel, had a speedy check in into our pretty double hotel rooms and raced off to the spa to test out all the gorgeous new f...

#fixgreggs: An ingenious way to turn a PR crisis into an opportunity

by Dalila Salgueiro 21. August 2014 12:41
John F. Kennedy once said: “When written in Chinese, the word ''crisis'' is composed of two characters -- one represents danger, and the other represents opportunity” and this is exactly what British Bakery Greggs did yesterday while turning a Google logo disaster into a positive PR opportunity. The incident which started when a slogan reading "providing s*** to scum for 70 years" appeared above the baker's Google profile was then handl... [More]

The Hidden Ingredients

by Sophie Lowe 13. August 2014 07:37
  Like many people, my go-to guilt-free meal will always be a salad. There is something self-affirmative when you order a salad, almost exclaiming ‘yes I look after myself!’ with a look of pride.

by Sophie Lowe 29. July 2014 11:17
This week I read that it takes us girls 3 days to prepare for a girls night out, with us applying on average, 14 different beauty products to our bodies. It is fascinating how we invest so precious time in our busy lives for THAT specific night out at the weekend. Whether it is to pamper, beautify or as a way of relaxation, us girls are experts in the profession of ‘getting ready’. I am heading to a party this weekend and according to this... [More]

#Healthy

by Dalila Salgueiro 23. July 2014 07:31
It is no secret that Instagram has revolutionised our world – it has made us become more vain (who could imagined this #selfie revolution a few years ago?), look more tanned (god bless the rise filter) and it has even allowed us to linger longer over a meal out, as recent studies have revealed that the average time spent by people having dinner has increased from 40 mins to almost 1hr 15mins, mainly because part of this time is used by customers ...

A breath of fresh air

by Tracey Stapleton 21. July 2014 04:47
It claims to be the 'ultimate wrinkle-smoothing facial to rejuvenate ageing skin' so being well into that age when you feel your skin needs a little bit more technology to make a difference, I popped along to the Elemis Day Spa in Mayfair to try out their 60 min  Triple-tec Anti-Wrinkle Facial.  Welcomed by my therapist, Jenny, she started with a visit to the Elemis Skin Lab to check the current situation of my skin. A quick photo re... [More]
