Shop: Necklace Making at The Turpentine, Brixton

Last week I was kindly invited down by StreetHub to visit a gorgeous little place called The Turpentine for a jewellery making workshop. Based on Coldharbour Lane in Brixton, it’s a short walk from the tube station, the bustling high street and the fabulous Brixton Market. Having done a little jewellery making in my teenage years, mainly with metal wire and beads from our local Hobbycraft, I was excited but not..

Hi all! Following some technical difficulties, ready to share is a fabulous trip which the OH and I went on to the coast to enjoy the sea air and recommended antique shops earlier this year.

Trendwatch: Serengeti Style

Hello Shopaholics, I was absolutely enamoured with this photo shoot in The Evening Standard Magazine and simply had to share! It’s my dream to go on Safari as I’m a bit of a nature buff (and look at these safari chic outfits!) but the closest I’ve got is The Lion Park (see my South Africa blog post here). When stumbling across these photos on my tube journey home, I felt like I had.. Read More

After spoiling my loved ones I feel like it’s time to spoil myself – so I’ve had a bit of.. Read More

Restaurant: Tozi, Victoria

Like anyone else out there, I’m a sucker for a good Italian restaurant. Ashamedly on my tight London budget (where food comes fourth to clothes, make up and the now mortgage!) I tend to visit Pizza Express or Zizzi using the lovely VoucherCodes app to find 2 for 1 bargains! However this weekend,  I visited a real Italian in the form of Tozi Restaurant in Victoria for friend and fellow.. Read More

Salon: Ministry of Waxing, Islington

Hello fellow Shopaholics, I was lucky enough to be invited down to the launch of the snazzy new Ministry of Waxing salon in Islington. My prior experience has been at their stunning Covent Garden salon, where I have an eyelash package with their sister brand BrowHaus (also a must visit). It must be the most outrageous salon I’ve ever encountered… inspired by the likes of Doctor Who with a Laser.. Read More

Shop: Twinings (and a Parliamentary Afternoon Tea)

For those of you that know me well, you don’t want to see me on a morning when I haven’t had a cuppa. My favourite tea has to be the one and only Twinings English Breakfast, and whilst I was partaking in Open House London a couple of weeks ago, I stumbled upon THE Twinings Shop! Cue ridiculous amounts of excitement and photo taking…. So much so that I forgot to take a.. Read More
