"But which port are you at?" This is never the ideal way to start a weekend, especially when the boat leaves in ten minutes. My phone had died, but I had managed to borrow one from a gorgeously friendly Turkish girl called Nila who I had accosted. "I've lost my boyfriend", I tried to explain. "Don't... Read more »

Lime Wood

Posted by & filed under Europe.

Approaching through the countryside, you are struck by nature in all its beauty with the ancient trees, open spaces, unenclosed pastures, heathland and roaming animals, all of which add to the magic and wonder of the New Forest.  Not far from Lyndhurst (which in old English meaning 'wooded hill growing with lime-trees') you find the discreet...

Hotel Terravina

Posted by & filed under Europe.

Walking through the brightly coloured orange door of Terravina, you realise straight away that you have entered into a dazzlingly out of the ordinary, boutique hotel, quirky and very much showing the individual taste of the owners, Nina and Gerald.  In the entrance there is an impressive feature staircase, that wraps around a beautiful glass chandelier with wellington...

Sultry, feminine curves and a dash of naughty, erotic even. That's what comes to mind when you see the unique beautiful lingerie from Belle Et BonBon, with delicate hand finished laces, velvet trims, ribbons, luxurious satin and embellishments, it's perfectly luxurious.

Bart’s

Posted by & filed under Bars & Clubs.

Tucked away inside the Chelsea Cloisters, a luxury apartment complex with gleaming white walls and glossy marble floors, Bart’s is truly a hidden gem that is a surprising juxtaposition to the building within which it's nestled. Having arrived in London that morning, fresh off the red eye from New York, I knew there was only one... Read more »

Barefaced Beauty

Posted by & filed under Products.

It might just be my personal experience, but I am definitely a fan of mineral makeup. Not only do I choose to use it for the benefits of its content, but I just think it feels better than all these liquid products that can look like a colored mask if you have the wrong shade! Bare Faced... Read more »
