This week, I was lucky enough to go to Soho Farmhouse with one of my oldest friends Miss. T. Luckier still, we were blessed with sunny weather and warm temperatures that made this country outpost of the Soho House chain even more idyllic than it already is. Set within rolling hills near Chipping Norton, on the outskirts of the village of Great Tew, Soho Farmhouse is about an hour and a half from London and a completely decadent slice of heaven.Read More
I love looking at the interiors section of any shop. All the better if the shop itself is dedicated to all things beautiful for home living. Over the years, with my moving house every other time the earth goes round the sun, I have learnt to holdback from buying a shop's entire range the moment I get a new abode's keys.

Brunch is my favourite meal of the week, without question.

But after a Sunday morning run, all can be a guilt free pleasure. Must remember that in future.Read More

For a great deal of my 20s, I lived in the area Battersea, London. It is great location – a stone’s throw from the Thames, lots of green spaces in Battersea Park, Clapham Common and Wandsworth Common with more restaurants and bars per person than any other London Borough. It is a suburb that is home to two main London types: yummy mummies and yuppies. They, in the main, live in a happy symbiotic relationship. One species frequents the public areas during the day, the other is much more nocturnal by nature!Read More
