A Walking Tour Around The City Of London, Part 1

Barbican The Lex Chapter

My parents came to stay for Easter Friday and we made the most of the sunny weather exploring parts of London we don’t normally visit. Mum had a walking tour book and it was such a sunny day we thought let’s do this! We took the slightly unusual step in completing the walking tour backwards because we started from the… Read More

HM Summer Collection

Hm Summer Collection

I like to think I’m at an age where I can’t be lured to spend money simply off the back of an advertising campaign but H&M has totally convinced me that I need their entire Summer collection, damn it. The collection is just what I love for summer, tassels, loose and floaty with a slightly California Aztec sort of Isabel Marant vibe…. Read More

Manna Dew, Battersea High Street

Manna Dew  2

Manna Dew is a café that has opened on Battersea High Street and everything on the menu is suitable for those who have coeliac disease, woohoo! For those who don’t know coeliac disease means you can get really poorly if you eat gluten. Gluten free options have become trendy in the last few years and whilst it is great there’s an… Read More

Salted Caramel Chocolate Tarte.

Salted Caramel Choc Tarte 6

When it comes to baking I like to take short cuts wherever possible; I just haven’t got the patience or accuracy to make a star baker. That said, when wondering what to serve as dessert for a dinner party I felt serving a shop bought pudding was a cop-out so I compromised.I walked around the supermarket trying to think of some inspiration… Read More

I Believe I Can Fly

Hot Air Balloon Helicopter

I have always been fascinated by helicopters, I loved to wave to them when I was younger and put my head out the window when I heard the police or rescue helicopter hovering over my house. I also live in Battersea and see lots of helicopters landing in Battersea Heliport every day. When we went to Vegas we booked helicopter… Read More

Aside from meeting some gorgeous friends I didn’t really have a great experience at Uni. It was my first time away from home and there was so many students on my course I felt like I was barely staying afloat and not one tutor wanted to chuck me a life raft. As I studied English Lit and Drama the practicals… Read More

If you read my blog you know that my partner T LOVES cars, everything to do with them. Here in the UK we are lucky enough to live near Goodwood. Goodwood is a historic venue for Motorsports, they host a number of events throughout the year and we’ve attended both the Festival of Speed and the Revival. This was the… Read More

UniqloXLiberty

Liberty Uniqlo

Today I risked my life ( slightly dramatic ) to get my Mum a belated Mother’s Day present. Mum wanted something from the UniqloXLiberty collection so earlier I headed to the Oxford Street shop to have a look around the collection. The shop was busy, really busy and seemed to attract a range of Liberty fans. From smart, classically dresses… Read More

Snapshots of Wales

Penarth 1

As I mentioned in the previous blog my Nan passed away a few weeks ago and I’ve been spending a lot of time in Wales helping with preparations. Waiting for a memorial service is such a strange time, whilst obviously sad it’s makes you appreciate the good things you’ve experienced and are surrounded by in life. I’ve enjoyed some gorgeous days… Read More

A Weekend in the Woods

Screen Shot 2016-03-03 at 11.14.44

It is lovely to be back on this corner of the internet. I apologise about the break, I lost my bed buddy and beloved grandmother, Nan on 20th February. Her death was a big shock so I took a bit of time off to not worry about blogging / social media and concentrate on the stuff that matters in the real… Read More
