London isn’t short on pop-up’s but last weekend I went to one of my favourites yet. Naturally if you pair one of my favourite hotels and gins together it’s going to be a winner but this surpassed my expectations. Ham Yard Hotel and Sipsmith have teamed up once again to put on quite an experience. At first you may not think the words hot and gin go together but, don’t discount it! In the beautiful setting of the Ham Yard rooftop terrace, the team invite you to discover gin in a very different way. Surrounded by candles, patio heaters and… View Post

There is certainly mixed opinions about Valentine’s Day out there. Love it or hate it, it’s just around the corner.

Last weekend began with a 4am alarm on Friday morning. Why is it whenever you are getting up for something other than work it’s far easier, no matter what the time is!

Well the temperature has certainly dropped and I am becoming my usual hermit-like self (snuggled away in the warm until the sun comes out again). As much as I’d like to avoid the cold unfortunately it’s necessary to go outside from time to time. As always the cold weather can cause dry skin and that’s something I like to avoid also. This year I am loving the below products and I don’t know what I would do without them… Crabtree & Evelyn Lavender Hand Cream Your hands are one of the most exposed areas of skin and are often the… View Post

Statistically tomorrow will be the most depressing day of the year. Sad I know! For most working people, Monday is never a good day, but due to a combination of Christmas celebrations being over, money being stretched and the cold wet weather, tomorrow is named Blue Monday. To make things a little better, the good people at Bunga Bunga Battersea are offering us £1 pizza throughout the day when you purchase another item from the menu or buy a drink.
