Sunsense Daily Face

So the summer may be over, but this doesn't stop the sun shining (occasionally!) and we still need daily defence from sun damage. 

Most recently I tried out SUNSENSE Daily Face for everyday use on the face and neck.  This light, soft cream has an oil free base and is tinted for a sheer matt finish. Not only is it super super light, but the fact that you get a bit of tint in it, makes it the perfect base. 

It works as a great primer too! For stockists check out -

Suda Thai

Hidden behind Long Acre in Covent Garden lies St Martin's Court Yard, a modern development of new restaurants and snazzy shops.Brand new to this area is Suda Thai ( a modern take on the traditional thai. Greeted by friendly staff and modern decor the restaurant ticked all the boxes on first impressions. 

On each table were these quaint hand made reindeer, not sure on the relevance but they were a nice touch, plus you could purchase them.

For starter I had prawn and fishcake 'lolipops' with Thai sweet chilli sauce - the taste didn't exactly blow my mind but did the trick for a starter. 

For main however I had red curry with seabass - the creamy sauce complimented the light fish perfectly and was a delicious main. Definitely worth another visit!

Service - 9

On a very wet day last week I got to have lunch with the wonderful

We went to a quaint CafĂ© called Lantana on Charlotte Street.

With scrambled eggs to die for and fresh smoked salmon, the portions were HUGE and just what we needed to start our days. 

With reasonable prices and a buzzing atmosphere, Lantana is a great spot for brunch - drink the latte's with caution, they are highly addictive... 

Here's Laura with her excessively large piece of bread, plus my breakfast!

Palmers Cocoa Butter

So I got sent this lovely set of Palmer Cocoa Butter Night Renewal Cream and Line Smoothing Eye Cream.


The texture of the night cream is light and airy, so refreshing unlike most night cream which tend to be thick and gloopy. As for the eye cream, it has worked wonders! My under eye bags are dimishing by the minute. 10 out of 10!

Night Renewal Cream £6.95 / 75g

Line Smoothing Eye Cream £6.95 / 15g

Candle shopping is possibly one of my favourite things to do - pop down to Selfridges and get lost in the aroma of the candle section. My all time favourite candle brand is NEOM -

With a range of luxury organic candles, hand and body creams - the scents are to die for!

My fave is the Relax Home candle - only problem is it's price point at £39 for a candle. Not so ideal! Looks like my Christmas list will be being added to again this year!

Primark Tottenham Court Road

So Tottenham Court Road is the home of a new Primark - uh oh for me as it's two minutes from my work. 

A 3 floor megastore with literally everything you could possibly need for under a tenner - this budget fashion doesn't seem to budging. And I'm not complaining!

On the day of opening I was ready and raring to go and got myself this leather pleated skirt for £11 and an amazing statement necklace for £6.

La Bodega Negra

Last night I managed to finally try out the much hyped mexican restaurant - La Bodega Negra.

Unfortunately we couldn't get a booking for the restaurant, which you famously enter via a sex shop. 

But we settled for the Cafe which offers a similar menu - I went for Qaesedillas with chorizo and potato - a strong choice. The cocktails also quite literally blew my mind, my head is suffering today. Mojito's with considerable levels of rum. Great atmosphere and good service. Plus the soundtrack made me very happy, Destiny's Child mixed with Usher, perfection. Overall a good 8 out of 10.

New York Fashion Week

So London Fashion Week starts today - but what was everyone's favourite look from NYFW?

The stand out show for me was Marc Jacobs - a mixture of psychadelia and a bit of 60s thrown in for good measure. Oh so Jackie O!

Johnny Depp and Jewels

I can't get enough jewels in my life, and these amazing new bespoke jewellery pieces from British jewellery designer Stephen Einhorn have caught my eye.

Recently commissioned for Tim Burton's Dark Shadows film, the exquisite, handcrafted jewellery designs included a bespoke ring for Johnny Depp's Barnabas Collins character, a bespoke fish keyring and key pendant necklace for Eva Green's Angelique Bouchard character!

I'm one step closer to Johnny with this ring.

Olympic Fever...

It has taken over!

And fashion hasn't been left out - Milli Millu (gorgeous luxury bag brand) have developed the 'Londoner' bag.

The bag has individual pockets for 'my phone'and 'my laptop', and is in a rich phonebox red. It may be £395 but it's worth every penny - a definite staple even when the Olympics have departed!

Check out my other blog on the designer's recently opened a studio-store in Belgravia - very chic!

Tommy Guns

So I just had possibly the best haircut of my life. I'm one of those people, I avoid the hairdresser like the plague. That awkward chat about your weekend and what you do for a living, I hate it. Plus I hate having my long hair trimmed, I want it to long an lustrous ala Kim Kardashian (this will NEVER happen). However I decided enough was enough and I was lucky enough to get to try out the new Tommy Guns inside the Superdry store. The salon was like a mini oasis, cool and chilled out. 

Kim cut my hair and we had a great time, a little gossip and just a really nice experience. 

The Salon itself has amazing original features and you felt like you were transported back in time. 

Originally a barber shop designed & built by Percy Westwood and Joseph Emberton, opened in 1929 within the Austin Reed store and lovingly restored by Tommy Guns, the salon’s original features have been blended with modern twists to create an iconic salon cemented in British heritage. Travertine marble floors, walls of cream vitrolite and original 1930s barber chairs in gleaming chrome sit alongside the original barber shop cabinetry, under deco neon lights that serpentine across the ceiling.

Here's the results - I'm going back!
