Hello Tili. It’s oh so nice to meet you.

The beauty world were the first, I believe, to enter the world of subscription boxes. The excitement of receiving an surprise package through the letterbox each month containing a teeny tiny lipstick or mini face cream was almost too much to bear. However there’s now a subscription box for EVERYTHING. Chocolate, books, tea, flowers… In fact, if there isn’t a subscription box associated with a brand it almost makes you a bit suspicious….

Hunting for balls in Soho
(And other stories)

Balls-Bros-Soho

Balls: Balls Bros | Sunnies: Chanel

I often find myself running around Soho for various meetings and whatnot, and I’m lucky that I have a few dear pals who work in the area, who can skip out of their offices and come and meet me on their lunch breaks…

I am therefore always on the hunt for new spots for lunch in Soho, and love hearing about new cafes that have popped up (and always sad to hear when one has popped down).

Lunch & salted caramel doughnuts
at the National Café

National Cafe

Whenever you find yourself standing in the middle of Trafalgar Square, HUNGRY, don’t panic. At first glance you can’t see any places to head to for lunch, apart from a few fast food chains… but what you may not know, is hidden in the magnificent National Gallery (that massive building on the square), is The National Café, which serves up scrumptious British and modern European dishes, from brekky through to dinner…

DIY with a side of cashmere

Trilogy-fashion

A couple of weeks ago a new Trilogy jumper came into my life, and I haven’t taken it off since. I’ve worn it A LOT.

It’s because I love it. And when you love something, you should let it know. It’s your duty.

The Emerald St Literary Festival
10th June, 2017

Emerald-Street-Literary-Festival-3

I first discovered Emerald Street a few years ago, and pretty much fell in love instantly.

It was a proper girl crush. With a website. Which was weird. But not weird at all. Because Emerald Street is like having a bestie by your side. A chum in crime and the best kind of girlfriend, who’ll tell it to you like it is. Like it actually is. “No, that dress doesn’t actually do anything for you, you should stop wearing it” kind of friend.

The ease of travel

Trainline

On Tuesday, I introduced you to Lintenair – a wonderful way to travel.

City centre terminals, no baggage weight limits and no ticket collection queues necessary… You may have thought it too good to be true, but I can now reveal, that it absolutely isn’t.

Summer’s Coming…

Maple & Kings

There was a moment today, where I felt warm. Outside. There was a proper shift in the weather and I felt the sun on my face for more than just a couple of accidental minutes.

There was still a considerable breeze and it definitely wasn’t warm in the shade, but the fact remains that the sun said a proper hello and it looks as though it’s not going away any time soon. Hip pip.

A stroll, some sunshine and
lunch at Goode & Wright, Portobello

Goode and Wright

Today I found myself back on Portobello Road, where I haven’t been for a few weeks… I’d missed it. I do think that the sun always seems to shine down on the Bello, no matter what the weather. It could be snowing in Walthamstow and I’m pretty confident that it would be blue skies and carnivals in W11.

Travel has never been easier…

Travel with lintenair

A few days ago I started to plan a little trip. The trip was going to be full of fun, exploring, food & fashion. I was going to wander streets I’d never wandered, discover little cobbled streets with cafes, and generally have a very lovely time.

But then I felt a cloud appear above me as I started to think of The Big Faff. The epic journey, either on the tube or by taxi, to get to my terminal, the long queues to pick up my tickets, more long queues while I wait to board, the limits on my baggage, the emptying my water bottle only to buy another just before I board…
