The Scarlet Hotel: 2 Days Off Grid

Ah, two days Off Grid. And I know that I’m grossly misusing the term “off grid” here, but it sounds exciting and dramatic and you all know how I love a bit of over-dramatisation.

BUT never too late to start caring about SPF and taking care of your skin! Source link

It’s easy to forget, with the instant gratification and glamour…
