There are plenty of pretty breakfast spots in London and one of the most recent to join the group is the beautiful Dalloway Terrace. 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?

I love using brushes to apply my makeup as I feel that they give a fuller, more airbrushed finish. I have amassed a whole range of brushes and blenders but if I had to narrow it down, my favourite everyday beauty brushes would be these (from left-right): Tarte: The Buffer Airbrush Finish Bamboo Brush: a brush made from sustainably harvested bamboo might sound like the last thing you want to drag across your face but this brush is SO soft… View Post

Rooted London’s mantra is ‘Listen to your Body, Feed Your Soul’. Not only do they specialise in healthy food catering, coaching and yoga classes but they also understand that life is about balance, listening to your body and a long-term positive outlook, not just about jumping on the latest fad. (This is a gorgeous porridge from 26 Grains, my favourite place for porridge!) Founder Pandora visited the bareMinerals office last week to have a chat with us on what foods… View Post
