I don’t know whether it’s the fact that the sun is coming back or the fact that in a week I will be on holiday (I CAN’T WAIT!!) but suddenly everywhere in London looks particularly pretty at the minute. With this in mind, I thought I’d do a roundup of some of my favourite prettiest places for a drink in London (because it doesn’t have to be all smog and Brexit-depression): Dalloway Terrace Dalloway Terrace, a newish restaurant to join… View Post

As I mentioned in my Country Wedding inspiration post, we love the idea of a relaxed, informal summer wedding and wanted our table settings to match. Instead of highly controlled bouquets we liked wreaths of eucalyptus entwined with candles, instead of a three course sit-down meal we liked family style dining on wooden platters and instead of silver service cutlery we liked mismatching crockery.

DryBy is one of the latest nail and blow-dry bars to join central London and has already earned a good reputation.

I have been twice now, the first… View Post

For a start, the rooftop space is beautiful; you can eat underneath a pergola entwined with flowers, vines and fairy lights or chill out on blue… View Post

Nestled at the back of the Bloomsbury Hotel in an area of London known for its literary history (Dalloway Terrace is named after Virginia Wolf’s Mrs Dalloway), the restaurant is a peaceful retreat away from the nearby bustle of Tottenham Court Road and Oxford Street. I popped along for a 9am work breakfast meeting mid last… View Post

How many times have you been to the hairdresser, felt super nervous in the chair and then hated your hair when you came out? That used to happen to me all the time, that is until I found the wonderful Colette at Charles Worthington. I have blogged about my experience last year at the House of Charles Worthington here, when they took me from my dark blonde/caramel ombre to a fabulous bright, light blonde without it feeling overly dry or… View Post
