29.01.2016- What I Wore Today #247

I don't know about you, but for me there's something about the start of a new year which brings with it a fresh sense of energy- particularly in the style stakes. Over the last couple of weeks, I've gradually been getting around to giving my wardrobe a long overdue clear out, as well as…

27.01.2016- Beauty Buys: Yardley English Rose Eau de Toilette

Regular readers will no doubt know that I'm a huge fan of perfume, and am always on the (scented!) trail of fresh fragrances to add to my collection. Over the festive season, I was lucky enough to unwrap a new discovery in the shape of Yardley London's English Rose Eau de Toilette- a very …

25.01.2016- Literary Lookbook: War and Peace

There's no denying that Sunday evenings can be a little bit bleak, particularly in the midst of a dark and chilly January. Thank goodness then, for the arrival of War and Peace on our television screens- providing some much needed, beautifully shot escapism at the end of the weekend (as well a…

24.01.2016- Conversation Corner: Female Force On Film

It's not often that I get a chance to go to the cinema, so when I do get the opportunity to spend some quality time with a bucket of popcorn, it has to be for something pretty special. Don't get me wrong, I'm a film fanatic, but usually tend to catch things on DVD/Netflix/Amazon Instant…

22.01.2016- Point and Shoot: Photo Editing on the Go

A picture says a thousand words so the old saying goes- and whilst the part of me which loves to ramble on can't help but dispute that a little bit- it seems to be an adage which is proving true, particularly in the age of Instagram. Whilst you'll usually find me sharing pictures of what I&…

20.01.2016- On the Menu: Peyton and Byrne

Regular readers will be well aware of the fact that there are few things I enjoy more than a slice of cake- and as such I'm always on the lookout for new foodie favourites to try out. A few weeks ago I had the perfect opportunity to pay a long overdue visit to Peyton and Byrne- a lunch date wi…

18.01.2016- What I Wore Today #246

Although it's taken a rather bitter turn outside, towards the end of last year I think we were all pleasantly surprised by how warm and sunny the weather was. On the last Sunday before Christmas (and the day of a much-anticipated afternoon tea reunion at Sketch!), I left the house without wear…

15.01.2016- Fitness: A Running Commentary

In 2012, I made something of a personal pact with myself to start the year by taking on a new challenge. It was an Olympic year- and, more than that, it was the year that London- a sprawling city right on my doorstep- would host the games. A once in a lifetime opportunity to experience something p…

13.01.2016- Beauty Buys: New Year Nails

If you're already longing for the return of any sort of festive feeling, then fear not- I think I've stumbled upon the solution in the shape of some lovely new year nail shades. Worry not- there's no wall to wall glitter here- but instead a selection of excellently created colours, per…

11.01.2016- On the Menu: Dishoom

After the wall to wall turkey-tastic tastes of the last few weeks, I'm sure I'm not the only one who has found myself longing to tuck into something a little bit different. Thank heaven then, for start of the year diary dates, and the promise of indulging at a dining destination which has b…

08.01.2016- What I Wore Today #245

I'm not usually one for making resolutions when the New Year rolls around, predominately because I have absolutely no self control and the prospect of depriving myself of anything in January feels like the worst kind of punishment ever. Over the last few years, I've instead been concentrat…

06.01.2016- Literary Lookbook: And Then There Were None

If you're anything like me, over the festive season you'll have been well and truly glued to the telly- and one of the brilliant bonuses about this time of the year is that there are plenty of gems to get invested in, whether that be going back to the future with Sherlock or delving in to …

04.01.2016- My Month in Pictures: December

In the words of Soul II Soul- back to life, back to reality! Although the sudden dip in temperature means it's more tempting than ever to carry on with a spot of post-Christmas hibernation, it's time to get back into the swing of things- and I'm already very excited about 2016, as I to…

01.01.2016- On the Menu: Afternoon Tea at Sketch

For me, one of the greatest indulgences in life is afternoon tea. Although I never need an excuse to put the kettle on, there's something really special about taking a trip out to enjoy finger sandwiches, scones, cakes and all of the trimmings. From the Afternoon Tea Bus Tour to exploring the m…
