DREAMING OF PASTELS

I’ve taken photos of candy coloured houses for as long as I can remember. I remember thinking my friend’s pink flatshare in Chalk Farm from years ago was just a giant Fondant Fancy. This was made even better when I discovered she actually had a Fondant Fancy birthday cake ready for her birthday! See here

DOVER STREET MARKET

Carrying on from my last post, I was keen to visit the new location of Dover Street Market. Having moved from it’s namesake at Dover Street in Mayfair, the relocation to Haymarket, Piccadilly is more convenient and in a much larger space. Owned by Rei Kawakubo and her partner Adrian Joffe, it’s a high end

CURATING A DAY

I’m always in London but it’s always fun to visit the city with different friends. I planned a fun day out recently with one of my best friends and I loved that my friend, Carly described it as a day that I had curated and I suppose it was! Despite not being a blogger or Instagrammer, she

SPRING TIME

  I can’t believe these were taken a year ago and I never managed to get round to sharing all those extra photos from my trip to Kenilworth castle. The fact that this is a post compiled from archive photos from last year is a bit silly. I mean, this castle is such a magnificent ruin,

REFRESH AND RECHARGE

The glorious long weekend seems like forever ago now that it’s already Wednesday again. I had a great few days with plenty of good company and chocolate. It’s so nice having bank holidays book end the weekend and all too often I am kicking myself for not capitalising on the extra days and organising some

It’s time to talk about the Cushion compact! With the recent addition to the Lancome line up, MAC’s version as well as the upcoming L’Oreal’s Lumi Cushion I thought I should blog about the original Korean inspiration. I’ve been using them for a few years now and they are honestly one of my favourite ways of applying foundation. What is a

SAINT LAURENT SAC UNIVERSITÉ

Introducing my new bag! I have been a bit spendy lately and I purchased the Saint Laurent Sac Université in medium. It has been on my radar for a really long time and featured on my Instagram and Pinterest. Whenever I was near the Saint Laurent Selfridges store in London or Birmingham, I would always make a bee

I HAVE THIS THING WITH DOORS

Last weekend was pretty fun and on Saturday I spent it hanging out with Michelle. We last saw each other when I was in Hong Kong in December but now she is firmly back in the UK, yay! We spent Saturday, lunching, shopping and checking out the latest edition of The Bloggers Market. It was so

WINNIE EATS – BAO

Bao is one of my favourite eats in London. When Bao was first in the works, I kept a close eye on their Facebook page and I was excited when they finally opened. They certainly knew how to build anticipation! Bao certainly isn’t new and admittedly, I’ve been quite slow with blogging about this place
