Lush Halloween 2017 + Giveaway


As someone who is always sad for the end of the Summer season (I mean do British Summers even count?), one brand I can always rely on to entice me to make the most of the darker Autumn nights, enjoy long baths and join in the excitement for Halloween is Lush.

Las Iguanas MK Press Night


Why wait for Friday when it comes to a fiesta? On Wednesday, my party-animal friend Vesna and I found ourselves Havana-good-time at the press night for the newly refurbished Las Iguanas. As if we needed an excuse to party!

Theatre Review: The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time



"It was 7 minutes after midnight. The dog was lying on the grass in the middle of the lawn in front of Mrs Shears’ house. Its eyes were closed. It looked as if it was running on its side, the way dogs run when they think they are chasing a cat in a dream. But the dog was not running or asleep. The dog was dead."

Food Review: Calcutta Brasserie



Take Me to Church

It's been a long, long time since I attended church on a Sunday. In all honesty, it probably goes back as far as childhood years, curiously attending Sunday school. My parents aren't religious but I always wanted to know what it was like to go. This week I left my usual Sunday routine, including my staple roast dinner and went to church.

ZSL Whipsnade Zoo: New Elephant Care Centre


Whipsnade Zoo has always had a special place in my heart. I grew up in nearby Leighton Buzzard and spending those endless summer days at Whipsnade watching the sea lion show, eating ice-cream and trying to muster up the courage to venture down the big slide in the play area brings back fond memories of my childhood.

Karen Millen: The White Shirt Project


I was invited to my local Karen Millen store at intu Milton Keynes for the launch of their new Capsule Collection.
