High Tea at Harrods

New year, new you? Thought so.. Me neither! Why change, when things are already half fabulous?

That said, why stop having all the cake and all the fizz just because Christmas is over? My first post of the year is all about swooning over the Georgian Restaurant in Harrods– if you haven’t been, afternoon tea here is a must.

Unlimited fizz at Forge & Co.

A recent fad in London seems to be the unlimited prosecco brunch, and hey..  I am definitely not complaining!

Forge & Co. was the first one I came across on Shoreditch High Street, but getting a reservation there on Saturday seems nigh impossible..

Brockmans Barcelona Bonanza

Well, well.. where do I begin? I was lucky enough to be invited by Brockmans gin to enjoy ‘A Night Like No Other’ in glorious Barcelona on 18th November, and by George did they deliver!

It may have only been 24 wee hours, but to make it easier to digest, I have split the trip into bite size chunks to make for an easier read.. enjoy!



Lucky Dip Club- Biscuit Bonanza

Mid-September I decided to treat myself to some “Happy Mail”- a little something to look forward to from Mr Postman come October. I don’t know about you, but I love getting post, (probably because of my granny nature), and Lucky Dip Club enables you to get something that isn’t a bill, through the letterbox every month.

Spoiler alert! This post shows you what was inside the post box of treats!
