Luxurious Sophistication at the Hotel Ambra Cortina; A Review

A Fashionable Stay at the Hotel Ambra Cortina; A Review

Gazing out of the window on my flight to Venice, I suddenly spotted a handful of snowy peaks rising through the cotton blanket below. A few minutes on, and the clouds melted to reveal a plain of structured curves, the Italian Alps… Last weekend I was kindly invited to stay at the Hotel Ambra Cortina, in the heart of the Dolomites mountain range. This luxury … Continue reading A Fashionable Stay at the Hotel Ambra Cortina; A Review

The Last Minute Christmas Gift Guide for Almost Everyone You Know

The Last Minute Christmas Gift Guide for Almost Everyone You Know

As a Londoner, if you don’t nip your Christmas shopping in the bud quick enough, it can be more painful than a bikini wax to beat aside the Oxford Street dawdlers and Winter Wonderland romancers during December. So that is why I dedicate one full evening, with a glass of Baileys in hand, to hunting down the best gifts for my fam.  Because I’m nice, and … Continue reading The Last Minute Christmas Gift Guide for Almost Everyone You Know

In a couple of weeks is my lovely Auntie Jodie’s 50th birthday – I know I know she doesn’t look a day over 35 – so my Mum … Continue reading A Sparkling Sunday Brunch at Skylon Restaurant; A Review

High Expectations at Sky Pod Bar; A Review

High Expectations at Sky Pod Bar; A Review

You know what I love more than cocktails? Cocktails with a view. So of course London’s Sky Garden at the top of the recognisable Walkie Talkie (20 Fenchurch) building has been higher on my bucket list than it is in the clouds.  The Sky Garden is contained within a large glass dome, with two bars surrounded by strips of lush green foliage and two restaurants floating … Continue reading High Expectations at Sky Pod Bar; A Review

Challenging Expectations; Behind This Wall, A Review

Challenging Expectations; Behind This Wall, A Review

Expect the unexpected they always say. Well my expectations were surely challenged during my latest bar review… A short ride away in Hackney, Allyn and I sought out a cool spot for a cocktail, away from the dribbling rain of a cold Tuesday evening. Following our map we were taken to a quiet street, our heads scanning the rows of closed shops and all night fast … Continue reading Challenging Expectations; Behind This Wall, A Review

Opera Undressed; A Night at the London Coliseum

Opera Undressed; A Night at the London Coliseum

Plays, musicals, ballet… I adore these classic forms of on stage art but I’ve never given much thought to seeing an opera, especially in London. I’d only once seen an opera in Verona and it was an experience like no other. Emotional, dramatic songs of Aida echoed out across the open Arena di Verona, stunning the audience and bringing a hastily wiped away tear to … Continue reading Opera Undressed; A Night at the London Coliseum

There are endless sights to see in Cornwall but with only a few days to explore the coastline, Dad and I decided to stick to the shores of the South West. As a child I would regularly have a Cornish adventure with my Dad, camping in the countryside and playing by the sea.

Fresh Seafood at The Shore, Penzance; Restaurant Review

Home to historical fishing villages and family run farms, its not surprising that Cornwall is quickly becoming one of the UK’s top foodie destinations. When I began searching for the best restaurants to visit I was slightly overwhelmed with the number of incredible sounding kitchens from Michelin-starred Chefs to local’s favourite Cornish pubs.
