Birthday Wishlist

Birthday Wishlist

You would have thought by now I’d have grown out of writing Christmas and Birthday wish lists. I haven’t, but instead of writing lists hoping other people will buy all the things for me, I compile a small but concise list of things that I might treat myself to instead. It is my birthday in...
The Pinterest Challenge: Raw Vegan Lasagne

The Pinterest Challenge: Raw Vegan Lasagne

I love Pinterest. I could easily spend hours pinning images of my dream home or planning my future wedding (it’s completely normal when you’re not engaged, I assure you). But aside from gazing longingly at the pictures, I very rarely do anything with the things that I pin. Until now. Rather than just looking at...
Cocktail making with Southern Comfort

Cocktail making with Southern Comfort

I was recently invited to a cocktail making class by the lovely chaps at Southern Comfort so, not one to turn down a great offer, I pitched up last Monday to learn something new. Held in The Arts Club, Soho, it was the perfect great venue for an intimate cocktail evening. As soon as we arrived...
Currently Coveting: Cos crossed leather sandals

Currently Coveting: Cos crossed leather sandals

I think I have found The One. Any by The One, I mean the only pair of sandals I will ever need again. I saw these beauties in Cos today whilst walking around Chelsea and I wanted them immediately.     The only reason I didn’t buy them there and then is because I know...
Cairngorm Coffee, Edinburgh

Cairngorm Coffee, Edinburgh

It's always nice to stumble upon somewhere that you immediately love. On a wet and windy day, our last day on our trip to Edinburgh, we came across a little place offering warm coffee and a place to keep dry. We didn't need any more than that to head inside and try it out. Focusing...
Currently Coveting: Vintage Drinks Trolley

Currently Coveting: Vintage Drinks Trolley

I’ve been wanting a drinks trolley for the longest time (even longer when you consider how long this post has been sitting in my drafts). Somewhere to hold the good stuff for guests and parties, as well as all the cute glasses and drinking paraphernalia I have collected over the years.  Source Source Source Source...
M is for Metal

M is for Metal

I love metal. And not the heavy, musical kind, but the glossy, industrial, luxe, shiny (I could go on) kind. If I could, I think I’d live in a metal house – although I think it’d be very hot in the summer and I’d probably get bored of it before the first sign of rust....
T is for Tiles

T is for Tiles

When you think of tiling you probably think of the generic white squares around your bath. Or perhaps, and even worse, the old-fashioned floral monstrosities in your Grandma’s kitchen  (although I wonder if these are so retro they’ve become cool again?). Either way, there’s so much more to tiling than protecting your walls from water....
Back to School

Back to School

I very rarely read Stylist (I don’t think I am their target market really). But this week, on a very cramped and sweaty tube I picked up a copy to pass the time as I headed home. Their travel section doesn’t usually interest me, I don’t have the expendable income of most of their readers, but...
7 Bone Burger Co, Southampton

7 Bone Burger Co, Southampton

Even though I spend a lot of time in Southampton, I’ve never actually written about it. Until now. A little before Christmas, my significant other and I headed to a new burger joint he’d recently heard about, 7 Bone. Now, we’ve been to a few burger joints in London (Meat Liquor and Honest Burger, if...
The thing about New Year's resolutions...

The thing about New Year’s resolutions…

…is that they are full of false hope. I think that if you need to wait until a New Year to make a change in your life or if you think you’re suddenly going to become a different person as the calendar turns to Jan 1st then your resolutions probably aren’t going to last very...
The IN Thing - Our Night IN

The IN Thing – Our Night IN

Winter is coming! Correction, Winter is here and London is feeling pretty nippy right now! I don’t know about the rest you but when the cold sets in I batten down the hatches and never want to leave. But… inevitably one of your mates thinks it’s a great idea to have a night out in...
