Switching Off at Wriggly Tins

Wriggly Tins-41

Sometimes there just isn't the time to jet off half way around the world, but you still need to get away from it all. With that in mind, and with a need for a serious digital detox, Andy and I excitedly booked a weekend at Wriggly Tins in the South Downs. And honestly, it was the best weekend we've had in a longggg time. ... read more

Dinner That’s Pretty as a Picture at Picture Marylebone

Picture Marylebone-20

Date nights have somewhat fallen by the wayside recently, with both Andy and I being busy at work and me trying to be healthier before a very exciting beach holiday in Thailand in January. But when I heard that a new Picture Restaurant had opened in Marylebone, I jumped at the chance of a quiet night away from work and a date night with Andy. ... read more

A Gluten-Free Evening at M RAW Victoria

M Victoria-1

With a few friends who follow gluten-free diets, it's often that I'm asked for a gluten-free foodie recommendation. To be honest, I sometimes struggle to recommend somewhere. And then M RAW at Victoria opened. Whilst M itself has been open for a while, the RAW menu is band new and very exciting, and so I skipped out of the office one evening to meet fellow foodies, including Angie, for a gluten-free feast. ... read more

Tea Time Treats at Le Meurice, Paris

Le Meurice Tea-26

You can take the girl out of England, but you can't take the English out of this girl... When we were in Paris I couldn't resist a Tea Time at Le Meurice experience. Not only for the tea and perfect cakes, but to see another of the Dorchester Collection hotels.  ... read more

Handbags and Fudge Cakes at Thomas at Burberry

Thomas'-1

Sometimes a little "treat yourself" moment is in order. A little moment to enjoy whatever it is you love. For me, when I get to choose, it's some time with friends or family at a great restaurant, shopping or traveling. After my first month of work I thought a little me time was in order, so mum and I headed to Burberry's flagship store on Regent Street for some retail therapy and lunch at Thomas'.  ... read more

Literary Nights at Pavillon des Lettres

Pavillon des Lettres-1

I've always loved a small hotel that has enough character to fill even the grandest and biggest of hotels. There's something about the charm of a hotel like this that feels so special and inviting. Le Pavillon des Lettres is exactly like that. With just 26 rooms, each named after a letter and and an author instead of a number, this hotel has enough personality for any Parisian trip. ... read more

Postcards from Montmartre

Montmartre-44

Montmartre is one of my favourite areas in Paris to spend a morning wandering around. I love the beautiful buildings, the simple food and the gorgeous cobbled streets. ... read more

New York Meets Paris at Renoma Cafe Gallery, Paris

Cafe Renoma-2

There's one major advantage to always staying in the same area of Paris... You always know the restaurants that you want to go back to! When mum and I are in Paris, staying in the 8th arrondissement, usually the Golden Triangle, a visit to an old friend is a must. And Renoma Cafe Gallery is just that old friend. When we were staying at Hotel de la Tremoille, our old friend was just a stones throw away, and it's rude not to see your friends when you're so close, right? ... read more
