Where To Get A Last Minute Blow Dry This LFW

Living in London, you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to blow dry’s but they’re not always as good as you’d expect. Despite their W1…

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…

Luxury Valentine’s Gifts At The Top Of Everyone’s Wishlist

Ahh, it’s almost Valentine’s Day. A time to treat your partner and another chance to tell your loved one exactly how much they mean to you. In the past, I’ve always gone a bit OTT with Valentine’s Day. But as you get older and budgets increase, there’s a tendency to now buy less and buy great. For Dan and I, our anniversary also falls around the same time so it’s an extra special occasion for…

Wardrobe Classics | Stripes

& Why Dupes Are Often Worth The Investment Like many, I first spotted the Johanna Ortiz Anastasia top on Beyonce. Teamed with a loud skirt, she certainly made an impression as she surprised guests at a Christmas party. While her outfit was incredible for a performance, it’s probably not so practical for running around London. Additionally, at £684 it’s not exactly purse friendly. Well, unless you want to wear it at every possible moment to get a good…

How I Recreated A Spa In My Own Home

& Enjoyed A Truly Peaceful Time From the aroma’s to the sensations, from the relaxation to the after thoughts. I’m obsessed with spa’s.

Why January Is Crucial To This Year’s Success

As I write this I’m wearing my fiancés jumper and my PJ bottoms. A gift from my Nan last Christmas. It’s 11am – a bit too early to put the heating on yet. Daniel pays for the gas so I feel a twinge of guilt blasting the heating from morning until evening. Even more so when I head out for the day and leave it on. I’ll give it a few more minutes. Working from home…

Wardrobe Classics | Embroidery

& Why I’m Loving This Trend Right Now My Current Wardrobe Fans of the blog and followers of my Instagram will know that my wardrobe is really rather basic. I’m talking mostly monochrome building blocks like crisp white shirts, powder blue dresses, black cigarette pants and the occasional breton stripe. But one trend you’ll very rarely see me trying out is embroidery. Yup, I own just one embroidered peasant blouse. I don’t own any of…
