How To Dine Romantically

With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, it’s about time to start thinking about restaurants to head with your love. Or even your mate. Remember that episode on Sex and The City when Carrie and Miranda head out together? Love that one. Given the popularity of top London restaurants, you’ll need to get in there pretty snappy with your reservation to avoid disappointment. You know how much I love eating out and whilst I may have reigned…

11 Of The Best London Wine Bars 2017

I’ve lived in London coming up to nearly nine years now and despite some amazing restaurants on offer, sometimes nothing quite beats a good wine bar. Especially those with a cheese board on offer. My poison is red wine but funnily enough, I only actually had my first sip of red wine and enjoyed it in my last year of Uni in Bristol. Then that’s all I’d drink given the choice. White wine I only…

Celebrations & Champagne Etiquette With Moët

Goodbye 2016 & Why I’m Taking A Blogging Break It’s almost the end of 2016 and whilst it’s been an amazing year, I’m going to take a well deserved break. I can’t wait to dip my toe in the sea, climb through a forest without a handbag and best of all, not be glued to my phone! Whilst I’ll still be snapping the occasional picture on my Instagram, there’ll be a few scheduled blog posts…

‘Tis The Season For Life’s Little Luxuries

& Here’s How To Make My Favourites Ah Winter. If you’re anything like me, it’s a time for hibernation. Curling up on the sofa with all my grey blankets and my feet snug inside my Ugg slippers. Heck, perhaps even a good film on TV (or The Affair, anyone watching?). Obviously there will be a glass of red in one hand (after my detox obviously). It’s a time for making that extra special effort, putting Deliveroo…

The Social Kitchen Supper Club

& Why You Need To Go You’ve probably heard of The Social Kitchen before. I wrote about it previously (see here) and expressed my enormous admiration for Dani Tucker, the daughter of the late Shally Tucker to whom the cookbook is dedicated. I’m completely envious of Dani’s eye and her attention to detail, the fruits of which are clear to see in her supper clubs. Not only is the delightful decor like something out of…

Why ‘Taste’ Needs To Be On Your Bucket List

& Yes, This One Was The Best One Yet I’m a fan of caviar but love a good burger. Also, my mouth waters at the smell of a cooking cheese empanada and equally get impatient waiting for a good sliver of raw salmon. In addition to previous jobs I’ve also had good dates meaning I’ve eaten at some of the most insane restaurants in the world. Admittedly, I’m a food lover. Whilst I’m relatively new…

7 Of The Best Autumn Roof-Top Bars & Terraces

London   Hurrah for bars that throw open their doors and amend their insane roof tops for the colder seasons! That obviously deserves a “yay” and a twirl. Now aside from NYC, London has some of the coolest, most chic roof tops bars I’ve ever seen. Many of them are open top but even those that do have a cover (don’t sigh just yet), have the best views, menus and mixologists. Now this year, I have noticed…

Celebrating Global Champagne Day With Dom Pérignon

Meeting Richard Geoffroy & Enjoying An Exquisite Champagne Brunch at Claridges Global Champagne Day Last Friday was Global Champagne Day.

Transformation Dom Pérignon P2 1998 Vintage. First of all, before being treated to a delightfully intimate brunch hosted by Chef…

A Foodies Guide To Dating In London

I’m engaged to someone who doesn’t get over-excited at the prospect of dining out. My love doesn’t have Whatsapp conversations about food for the entire day. Nor does he care for a new restaurant opening in town. Me on the other hand, I live for it. I can’t imagine my life without restaurant fun, food heaven and immense wine. Ok, I know I sound completely pretentious but I just really bloody love good food. Lucky for me…

Getting Back To Nature | A Country Escape

I enjoy good food. Love great wine. I live in the city but am from the country so I crave the green scenery once in a while. I’m pretty easy to please. Unfortunately it’s often rare to find a place that combines everything I adore without fault and one that offers a relaxing experience for a break away. After a heavy five days partying in Las Vegas (post coming soon), feeling enormously jet lagged Daniel and…

The Quintessential Luxury St James Stay

Next to one of London’s most prestigious Royal Parks (Green Park), is The Stafford Hotel. Established in 1912, it’s a stately, five-star picture-perfect venue. Complete with a palatial restaurant and plenty of tradition, the hotel also offers a beautifully relaxed cobbled courtyard for guests to enjoy a spot of lunch. What’s really special is the American Bar that offers some superb cocktails.  If luxury is what you’re after, you’ll struggle to exceed the quality of The Stafford. The…

London, Chocolate & A TV Programme

DISCLAIMER: Look Away If Dieting Writing this post was tricky I didn’t know where to start. Did I want to launch into details about my wedding cake preparation? Did I want to talk about London and its bucket-list attractions? Or did I want to talk about my one true love. The sweetest and most satisfying thing in the world, chocolate. Choccywoccydoodah falls into each of those categories. If you’ve never heard of Choccywoccydoodah you’re missing out. Situated on…

A Spot of Afternoon Tea, Sloane Square Style

I moved from south to north London when I met Daniel. Before moving in together, we would take it in turns to commute from Clapham right the way up to Edgware on the northern line. What a mission. When we decided to buy our first home, he insisted we must move north. After hearing his reasoning (and understanding for the first time about the north/south divide), we moved. I miss south London terribly so whenever an opportunity…
