Living in London means I have some of the world's best shops right on my doorstep. However, sometimes traveling to another city can be more inspiring and introduce you to new designers and brands. It's a great way to make time to catch up with a close friend or even a treat for your Mum. Some hotels have started to notice a trend for these shopping minibreaks and now have offers catering to shopping needs. For example, The Westbury Hotel in Dublin has a package called The Fashionista's Fancy (359 euros per night/about £312 per room per night) which includes breakfast, 3 course dinner, complimentary glass of champagne and an in-room foot massage! How amazing does that sound? All you'll need to bring is some comfortable footwear and your plastic. Do you like to go on shopping weekends away?
