London HOT-SPOTS: Kensington Roof Gardens!

As promised previously, I am back with a post on a new London Hotspot and this time it is Kensington's Roof Gardens! [More: The Roof Gardens and ViewLondon/roof-gardens]
My beautiful ladies at the Roof Gardens, Kensington.
The Roof Gardens in Kensington (London) is an interesting concept by the Virgin group and it shows.......as at times you do get the feeling of being in a hotel rather than a club on the 6th floor overlooking the views of London. But I must admit that I do like the relaxed feel of a garden in the air amongst the glittering lights of London and the busy swishing from cabs to the red double deckers....though the only thing that keeps me from lingering in the rooftop garden is the chilly winter wind. The crowd it draws in tends to be the relaxed suited professionals and the sparkly pretty ones with sky scraping high heels.....so it is usually a case of dressing to impress. The decor is clean and sharp with a spritz of glamour.....white walls, white tiles, shiny wooden floors, black grand piano and a long beaded white curtain separating the seating area. Though I do think it is one of those venues that depend largely on the event of the night and the music.....my experience of Roof Gardens on nights when it is filled to a good capacity but not overcrowded is much more fun! The photos of my beautiful girlies were taken on the post-valentines party when the club was just so crowded we could barely get near the small dance floor without getting stepped on by other party goers! I must admit I am biased when it comes to the dance floor, as some of you may already know that I do love to dance, and so if there was something that could change I would suggest that the dance floor in the main area of the club is expanded. But it is not the end of the world, as there is another area decorated in the fashion of an indoor garden with a bigger dance area and usually tends to be less crowded. There is also the convenience of an outdoor barbecue, so that you can grab a bite to eat if you are hungry whilst lounging in the garden by the outdoor heaters. The staff are courteous and swift to the dot....it is really an impressively well planed concept and I am yet to hear  the tumble of broken glasses or the splash of spilling wine. All in all, the Roof Gardens (Kensington, London) is an interesting club that deserves a high 4 ♥♥♥♥ out of 5 lovely hearts, especially on a less crowded night where conversation and dancing can become the highlights of the evening!

I hope you have been inspired to explore and try out a new London Hotspot! Also apologies on the delay in replying to all your lovely comments as I have lost my voice over the busy weekend and have been recovering from a horrid cold....so feeling rather dream-like and a little detached. Have an utterly fabulous week my darlings!


Until the next time,
May xx

Qipao Love: Part 5 ~ How-To choose and wear a Qipao (Cheongsam) that will love your frame!

A little warning is probably in order my darlings...as this will be a rather comprehensive How-To Qipao post! I will try to incorporate my own knowledge as well as what I researched through time, to create a rough but helpful guide for ladies who might want to attempt wearing the Qipao! Why do I say attempt? In today's fast paced life the Qipao has become a rather occasional dress even for a faithful admirer like me and I can understand why it might not be the most popular attire in the world, but I also know that many ladies who admire the Qipao might resist the idea of wearing it because of different barriers. Being a lover of the Qipao myself...trust me I know the fearful qualms and muffin top resistance to wearing a Qipao all too well.....whether it is a matter of figure, budget, impression, style, occasion, look or finding the excuse to wear a Qipao, I hope to be able to offer some help towards a solution and ask that you forgive me if I am too long winded. The Qipao really i…

Qipao Love: Part 1~ From Qi Pao to Cheongsam.....an evolution of a dress about women!

Welcome my lovely darlings to the new address www.WalkingInMay.com as the blogspot to custom domain transition is now officially completed! Worry not, if you are still using the walkinginmay.blogspot.co.uk address it should automatically divert to the blog and there is also a new e-mail address if you should like to drop me a line to say hello or ask any questions; may@walkinginmay.com! What better way to celebrate this transition than to start on one of my favourite topics.....with Part One of my "Qipao Love (All about Qipao)" series of posts!

Throughout my blog over the two years, I have mentioned the Chinese Qipao dress (also known as Cheongsam in Cantonese) quite a few times, especially during the run-up to Chinese New Year. Having a self confessed love of the Qipao, as some of you darlings who have been following may know, I can usually be spotted wearing the Qipao throughout the 15 days of Chinese New Year festivities and have been adding one or two new Qipao dresses t…

How-To: Build a 1920s inspired Great Gatsby look!

With my birthday coming up in a little more than two weeks, and having decided on a vintage themed party, it is time to put my vintage thinking headband on! Last year I had fun dressing up as a 1940s inspired Pin Up girl, and this year I have decided to go a little further back in time.....yes my darlings....we will be roaring in a 1920s glitzy Great Gatsby affair!

The 1920s has been a favourite decade of mine for quite some time.....admittedly the decadence of the glittering heavily beaded long gowns, the extravagantly flirty ostrich feathers and the shiny Art Deco gem-stoned pieces might have something to do with it! It was true that the roaring 20s was a rebirth period for many because of the survival of WW1, so living every new day as free, happy and extravagant as possible became the ideal dream. With more women embracing liberation by replacing restrictive corsets with loose flowing dresses that revealed more flesh than ever before, a period embracing individuality, creativity, …
