Libratone Zipp Speakers
Wifi, Bluetooth, Portable, Amaze

display:none

I am not a techy-whizz, make no mistake. I am often bamboozled by all things internetty, cabley, wifi-y… so when I first heard about Libratone wireless speakers, I have to admit, I was a little dubious that I’d even be able to get them to work.

How wrong I was. These speakers are so easy to set up and use and they have changed my musical life. They really truly absolutely have. They’re amazing, and I’m going to do my very non-techy best to explain why.

Floating away at Thai Square Spa

There is something so wonderful about waking up in the morning and knowing you are going to be spending it in a spa… but there is something even more special about knowing that the spa you are going to be disappearing into, is the magical Thai Square Spa in the heart of this busy, whizzy, spectacular city.

EatFirst knocks my brunching socks off

Eat First

When you’ve just moved into a new home and you’re surrounded by boxes and you don’t know where your pants are, let alone your saucepans, and you’re about to go on holiday so there is really no point in unpacking…. the LAST thing in the world you feel like doing is cooking. Not just because you can’t find a frying pan, but because it’s just one thing too far to think about… especially as you can’t find your pants.

Blooming Lovely

Fact of the day – more perfume is sold at Heathrow than any other location in the UK.

Isn’t that amazing? I had no idea – there are so many beauty halls and perfume stores around this fair land, it was such a surprise to learn that Heathrow was the ultimate scent destination… but, the more I think about it, the more it makes sense.

Bank holiday adventures
with Radley London

Poppy Loves Radley Bank holidays are like gold dust. They pop out of the calendar and glimmer with promise, turning a long week into a short spell and extending the weekend as if it were made of elastic. And even though it’s just by one day, these additional 24 hours can make you feel as though you’ve had a proper holiday. Continue Reading…

Working lunch

 

Ryvita lunch packs

Today I have been running around the house (I keep writing ‘flat’, then having to delete it!) doing a mixture of blogging stuff, laundry stuff, shopping stuff (beans, milk etc – nothing exciting) and staring vacantly into space as I try to work out how I should tackle my post-holiday heaving inbox of 1273 emails. Unread. *Sob*

On days like this I can forget to eat. And then 4pm comes around, my blood sugar is ridiculously low and I end up destroying a packet of Jaffacakes without even blinking.

Oh, hi there…

Milos

Supper on Milos

These past couple of weeks, I have been recharging, rebooting, sleeping and (mostly) eating on two of the most gorgeous Greek islands I have ever had the good fortune to visit – Milos and Sifnos.

I have a camera full of photos to share with you, but for now, this is a hello – I’m home!

We got back in the wee hours of yesterday morning and today is my first day back at my desk, coffee in hand and an inbox bursting at the seams…

My #OrganicUnboxed Challenge

ORGANIC UNBOXED

Oh hello September! This one of my favourite months – it’s the beginning of Autumn, the leaves change colour and I can’t help but be catapulted back in my mind to the first day of school and being reminded to bring in a can of sweetcorn for the Harvest Festival.

September is now widely known as Organic September, which is something very close to my heart. I was rather late to the party, when it came to thinking about what I was ACTUALLY putting into my body… but once I’d jumped on board the bandwagon, there was absolutely no stopping me and my enthusiasm for eating good, real, not-messed-about-with food.
