On Saturday I had the pleasure of visiting Fiz – one of the newest pop-ups in Soho. Taking residency in Lights of Soho until the 13th August, founders Barnaby Lewis, Max Bigland and Jordan Nadian bring a little taste of Barcelona to Brewer Street with London’s first sparkling wine bar. In recent years I have become quite a fan of Barcelona. Wondering the cobble streets from one tapas bar to the next is one of my favourite things to do while visiting. The hustle and bustle of the bars are so infectious, there is something so relaxed about their informal,… View Post

Besides being on my list of things to do before I am 30, I have wanted to go to Ibiza for a while now. Not only to dance through the night, although there was a fair bit of that, I also wanted to see what else the island had to offer and boy did it have a lot! There is so much more than the partying side to Ibiza. This beautiful Balearic Island has gorgeous shorelines, hilltop views and some stunning secret beaches. The kind that only locals know how to access or can only be reached by boat! I… View Post

Exactly 2 years ago today we moved into our very first flat together. It was one of the most exciting and rewarding days but also a lot of hardwork, so worth it to have our own little pad and get onto the property ladder though.

Following last year’s high in demand Coppa Club winter igloo’s the announcement of this year’s summer cabanas was a very well received one, but they had a lot to live up to! After last week’s heatwave sadly the sunny weather did hold out until Sunday but that didn’t take any of the shine away from Coppa Club brunch experience. With panoramic views of the river Thames, the city skyline and the wonder that is Tower Bridge, there’s no competing with the view. The outdoor cabanas themselves were so pretty, I’m talking botanical heaven, marble table tops and cute little sofas.… View Post

Does anyone else get the theme tune pop into their head’s when someone mentions Harry Potter…no, just me..? Ok, well a few month’s ago I visited Harry Potter Studios for the first time. The primary reason for visiting was a birthday present for Tom’s neice, but I’m not sure who was more excited, her or me! I mean, lets face it, growing up with Harry Potter was pretty cool. And I’m sure we all wanted school to be like Hogwarts when we were younger. Alas, it didn’t turn out that way but I do like to fantasise from time to… View Post
