Ah Christmas is over for another year. I'll miss the magic of it all, although I won't miss all that excess food... well maybe just a little. 

I had 3 roast dinners, probably the equivalent of 2 tins of Roses and more mince pies, stolen and cheese boards to last me to summer. Needless to say my Christmas jumper is not just there to look pretty, but to hide my growing paunch. 

I won't feel guilty though, its been yummy AF, although maybe it's time to tone it down a teeny bit. My problem is though whenever I start eating healthy my social life goes out the window. Well no more! Here are the best healthy detox restaurants in London, so you can eat, be healthy and be social. Win.

The Cafe, Hotel Cafe Royal (28)

Just before Christmas, I have to admit, I wasn't feeling very Christmas-y. I know, I know, it's like the unwritten rule that you can't say that, but it's true. I just wasn't feeling it this year. I think it's down to the fact that we have had Christmas in the shops since October. It kind of looses momentum by December.

Anyway's, keen to try and feel in the mood, me and Ella decided to go for a final catch up of the year, along with some winter warming drinks.

Ever the fan of Hotel Cafe Royal, hearing that the Cafe had a new Supper menu, of course I had to check out out. In my head Supper mean's hot, warm, rich food. Just my cup of tea then.


Finally I feel like my life is finally coming back together again. These last few months have been a real trying time for me. I found myself needing to look for a new job, a new flat, instances of not being paid money that was owed to me and the battles that created and other stressful events. So all in all it's not been too fun.

However I think the last of all the upheaval has settled. I have a new job, a new flat. I have my money, and it's Christmas! Which is why I think it was a fitting time to celebrate.

You might have seen on my blog and various social media accounts, that I love Laurent-Perrier champagne. I was only introduced to it less than six months ago, but it has risen to the top of my list and I genuinely admire the brand. 

So when asked if I'd like to have a intimate private tasting with them at the Corinthia Hotel, well let's just say, I didn't complain.

As promised, here is part 2 of my first time skiing vlog. I went to Val D'Isere in France with Powder White's on their press trip and finally got to see what the fuss of skiing was all about.

Day 2 went a lot better, and I was starting to pick it up a lot better- well you can be the judge of that.

Last week I had just got back from my first time skiing. I went to Val D'Isere in France and well, I think I fell in love. If you go skiing, you will probably know what feeling I'm talking about. There is just something rather magical about it.

Skate at Somerset House 2015 (2)

I can't think of anything that gets me in the mood more for Christmas than Ice Skating. There's something about twirling around, beneath a huge Christmas tree, to the sound of classic festive tunes, that makes me smile and feel cheerful. I've been to many of the different ice rinks, but my favorite my a mile is Skate at Somerset House. 

Christmas shopping is my worst nightmare. No matter how much I know people, buying presents is truly stressful. I'll be honest, I haven't bought anything yet, so I've been spending a little too much time on the internet. However in my own search for presents I came across some cracking ideas, so I had to share with you, if you are struggling too.


Ah December has arrived. Finally I can allow myself to get excited about Christmas. I always say never before December, even though the shops try and feed me mince pies in September. Yes they force feed me mince pies against my will...

However now that it is December, I can start to finally think about parties and gifts and holiday cheer.

Who doesn't love getting dressed up over the holiday season, and letting your hair down; everyone is always in a fun, and in an excitable mood.

So I thought why not combine the two, gifts and parties? And give giveaway a little treat for you.

Grand Hotel Du Palais Royal Paris (19)

Paris is stealing my heart more and more. I know it's a cliche to say it's the most romantic city in the world, but looking out of the rooftops, early in the morning on a glorious day, truly is romantic. Call me old fashioned, but I love a happy soppy story.
