Top 3 Ways to See and Enjoy Lake Louise

Top 3 Ways to See and Enjoy Lake Louise

When people ask me about the most beautiful part of my travels, I always tell them about my time in Banff. Standing in front of Lake Louise, among the Rocky Mountains… I’ve never been so overwhelmed by natural beauty.  The famous lake is a sight to behold, in fact it made me quite speechless. I quite literally had to drag myself away from my spot on … Continue reading Top 3 Ways to See and Enjoy Lake Louise

Fresh New Flavours of Jersey at Ormer Mayfair; Soft Launch

Fresh New Flavours of Jersey at Ormer Mayfair; Soft Launch

A first glimpse at London’s hottest new openings, half price food and top rate service… is there anything better than a restaurant soft launch? Not in my opinion. Even better is when the launch is for the latest venture of two time Michelin starred chef Shaun Rankin. As a part of a £15 million refurbishment, the Flemings Mayfair Hotel has managed to convince this Jersey based restaurateur … Continue reading Fresh New Flavours of Jersey at Ormer Mayfair; Soft Launch

Below are pictures from our day trips to Barmouth, a classic seaside town, and Beddgelert, a famous Welsh village named after a the … Continue reading Returning to North Wales; A Photo Diary – Barmouth & Beddgelert

Returning to North Wales; A Photo Diary – Harlech

Over the August Bank Holiday I returned to the Snowdonia region of North Wales to spend some quality time with Allyn and his family, whilst enjoying the incredible sea views from a beachfront cottage.

Decoding the Emoji Menu at The Little Yellow Door

A short walk from Notting Hill Gate station is a little yellow door, a bright narrow pane hidden between a boutique clothes shop and a tacky tourist store. Number 68, Notting Hill Gate (what a superb coincidentally rhyming address) is home to a few friendly flatmates who have transformed their flat share into a now permanent pop-up restaurant and bar. Taking the foodie scene by storm, … Continue reading Decoding the Emoji Menu at The Little Yellow Door

A Designer Stay at the Hilton, Bournemouth; A Review

A Designer Stay at the Hilton, Bournemouth; A Review

Last month I was invited to an event at one of Bournemouth’s latest hotels. The £60 million Hilton, that now takes a place on Bournemouth’s seafront skyline, has been receiving rave reviews since its opening last December. Despite its regular outdoor appearance, its innovative interiors have caused a stir due to its slightly secretive designer. The look and feel of the Hilton is fashionably modern, … Continue reading A Designer Stay at the Hilton, Bournemouth; A Review
