Makeover Monday: how to get free beauty treatments in London

If I was a character in the Iliad, I would definitely be one of the lotus- eaters. Lounging around, eating chocolates, being massaged at the same time… just enjoying life! Actually, according to my friends, that’s not too different from my life now 😛 All because I used to go for weekly beauty treatments. In London…. Read more »

Foodie Friday: A Birthday Tea

Spending your birthday alone. Although I’m all about independence, somehow the thought just seems a little sad. When I woke up on my 32nd birthday, I must confess to being a little down at the thought of a solo celebration even though I had 2 horse riding sessions lined up (Yay!). But luckily for me,… Read more »

Foodie Friday: Chelsea Eats

PJs: temperamental! This was a really random find. When you approach/hit/leave your 30s, it’s pretty much wedding season and I was accompanying a friend to a bridal fitting at Philippa Henley (or whatever it’s called- sorry not wedding dress shopping myself so the names tend to roll off me) and we were dying for a… Read more »

I’m in 2 minds about SK II. I used to give it a wide berth because, not only was it SO expensive, it had a chromium safety scandal in China a few years ago. For more information on this, visit http://www.bjreview.com.cn/business/txt/2006-12/20/content_51357.htm Hello?! TOTALLY unacceptable in any skincare brand, let alone such a premium one! However, I… Read more »

Foodie Friday: Margaux & L’eto, Chelsea

Sunday brunch with the girls. So Sex & The City, don’t you think? My London friends and I have a sort-of ritual. Every other Sunday (or so), someone would suggest Sunday brunch. Yum. Last week, we decided to visit a new haunt in South Kensington, on Old Brompton Road, a French place called Margaux. I was… Read more »

Top Tuesday: Best Spray Paint DIYs

I think spray paint is an amazing addition to the cupboard of any DIY-er/ crafter. It really gives a piece more oomph and makes it look more upmarket. And it’s so versatile! Unfortunately, it doesn’t make sense to get it if you only have 1 project to make so I thought a list of 3… Read more »

Foodie Friday: Rooftop dining, Aqua Nueva

Summer in London is a rare, rare thing. So when you actually do get clear skies and sunny weather, rooftop dining is a must and when I got an email about the £30 lunch/ dinner + cocktail promotion that Aqua Nueva was having, I immediately Whatsapped my London besties for a Girls Night Out. Just… Read more »
