Visit the Piano Works! *

Image
I love drinking, I love live music and I love food. When The Piano Works in Farringdon got in touch with me and invited me to their venue for brunch, watching a live band and with bottomless alcohol, I could hardly say no!
I didn’t really have any idea what to expect. I had never been to a venue like this before- part club, part restaurant, with two live pianists in the centre of the room, with other musicians such as a trumpeter and a drummer joining in on occasion. The best thing is, all of the songs that are performed are by request of the guests! On each table there are some napkins and pens where you can write your name, a song and a special shout out if you have a message you want to share. If you’re feeling very generous, you can write an amount to tip the musicians, to get your song played sooner! Waiters come around to collect the napkins from your table and take them up to the musicians, who then learn the songs on the spot before performing them! It doesn’t have to just be p…

Click For Therapy *

Therapy is not something I have considered for myself, ever. I like to think that I'm a pretty strong individual. I don't suffer from depression or anxiety, or any other mental health issues as far as I'm aware. I've not always had a happy time in life but for the last two years I have been happier than I have ever been! I am surrounded by lovely people, have a good career, and am relatively successful. There's no way I could need therapy of any kind, for any reason.

Or...maybe there was.

It was first brought to my attention by two of my best friends that perhaps I needed to "speak to someone" about some issues I had been through when one day I had a completely random melt down during a BBQ, when I had previously been having the best day with them! It came out of the blue and I couldn't understand it, and of course when they suggested a therapist I said no straight away. Me? Need help? Need to talk to someone about my feelings? I don't think so!

National Pink Gin Day 2017!*

Have you heard of Pink Gin Day?

Probably not! That would be because August 3rd 2017 is the first everPink Gin Day, an event that will be celebrated across the globe! The day has been created by Martin Edgerton Gill, founder of Edgerton Pink Gin, and will be celebrated all over the world by a number of bars and pubs who will be serving pink gin at a discounted price for all to enjoy!

I didn't even realise pink gin existed until I was fortunate enough to be invited to the Pink Gin Day press event on the 25th July with Alex. I don't particularly like gin but it was a party in an absolutely gorgeous venue (The Rose Lounge at the Sofital Hotel!), it was pink themed and you had to wear pink, so I was happy to attend- and I am so glad that I did!



The event was truly lovely. I got to meet the Martin Edgerton Gill himself, which was a bit of an honor to be honest! He was wearing a pink shirt, and was so sweet, kissing myself and Alex on the cheek, complimenting our outfits and chattin…

Natural beauty with Clinique! *

Not too long ago I worked on an exciting collaboration with Clinique all about their new skin care campaign. I was able to offer you guys the chance to get yourself  a free Clinique product and to tell you all about the fabulous free gift you could get if you spent a certain amount of money on Clinique products at Boots. Well, I'm back with another brilliant Clinique offer for you, and to tell you all about their latest campaign, how to create the No Makeup makeup look, an exciting collaboration with designer Jonathan Adler and how you can claim more freebies- thanks to me!

After receiving a fab skin care treatment for my last collaboration with Clinique, this time around I was fortunate enough to receive a makeover! I'm pretty rubbish at doing my own makeup- I can't do a cut crease or contour to save my life, I usually just slap on some sparkly eye stuff, make my face as glowy as I can and then think I'm good to go. However, Clinique advisor Beth took me into her safe…
