London Rooftop Bars – Savage Garden

I love London summer, not only for the scorching temperatures it brings but also because the entire town zooms away on holiday. I tend not to go away; why would I when I have the perfect sunny temperatures in my own home town? There is no need to escape; what it also allows me to…

Luxury Dining on board the Bustronome

Last week I had the pleasure of dining on board the Bustronome, a new and unique experience in London. An offshoot of the successful Bustronome Paris, the concept combines London sight seeking with luxury food and wine pairing, on top of a bus. In London this is being brought in collaboration with the popular (and…

Hotel Review : Continental Hotel Budapest

Isn’t it great when a decision you make on a whim turns out to be one of the best decisions ever? Our choice of Continental Hotel Budapest was exactly like that. To cut a long story short, a last minute change of plans meant that we ended up booking this place without our usual in…

London Restaurant Reviews : Céleste

It was that time of the month again! I am talking about my monthly catch up with my bestie M. She had picked Céleste, part of The Lanesborough, for our April rendezvous point. We booked their Set Menu at £39 which included three courses, a glass of champagne each, coffee and canapés through Bookatable. For…

London Restaurant Reviews : Darcie and May Green

The Daisy Green Collection are a prominent fixture on the London Brunch scene. Their collection of classic Aussie-style, breezy cafes serving fresh and healthy food has given us more reasons why we needn’t bother to get that frying pan out every Saturday morning to cook breakfast. My first experience of the Daisy Green Collection happened…

A Stylish Afternoon Tea at Flemings Mayfair Hotel

It was a wintry 2018 weekend in London when we had the famous visit from the Beast from the East that covered the land in snow. My bestie M and I exchanged several texts trying to decide whether to stay in bed or brave the icy weather for our Afternoon Tea reservation. After much deliberation, we decided…

48 Hours of Eating & Drinking in Lisbon

It is safe to say that Lisbon is a place for foodies. If you like your food, this city has a lot to offer. We barely scratched the surface of this gastronomic capital during our whistle-stop stay recently. But what we saw, we liked, we ate, we drank and we conquered! Here’s the lowdown of…

Birthday Meal : The Hand & Flowers

Contrary to popular belief, birthdays are never really my favourite day of the year. Like New Year’s Eve, there are a lot of expectations from this day and I almost always end up feeling disappointed, underwhelmed (and older) by the time the day ends. This year, thanks to my new found passion for food blogging,…

Tasting menu with Laurent Perrier & Les 110 de Taillevent

My last week started on a spectacularly gastronomic note when I won a competition to a special one-off Taste of London Tasting Evening in collaboration with Laurent Perrier. The venue was the stunning Les 110 de Taillevent, a French restaurant in Marylebone. I joined a group of other competition winners for a glamorous evening of…

Afternoon Tea – Galvin at The Athenaeum

I hardly venture out for Afternoon Tea as I am not a big eater. All those delicious cakes and scones are wasted on me as I peck away slowly through the tiers, pretty much stuffed after the first course. Luckily my husband is a cake fiend and he will happily polish off what I can’t…

My insights on Focus/17

September is a busy time, not just for fashion but for designers as well. In the interior design world, we have Focus, 100% Design, Design Junction and London Design Fair all vying for our attention within the space of one week. Focus/17 is one of the foremost interior design events that takes place at the…

Crawling through London Rooftop Bars – 2017

Summer is well and truly over. But this week promises to be warm again with temperatures north of 20 degrees (I’ll take what I can get!). So there is still some time to hit the rooftop bars in London before autumn makes itself stubbornly at home! August was miserable in terms of summer weather (except…
