Marriott's #LondonUnfiltered Challenge



I love London. If you've read this blog at all, I think that is pretty clear. When I was set a challenge by Marriott hotels to capture my favourite parts of this wonderful city that i call home for their London Unfiltered campaign, but only using a disposable camera, I jumped at the chance....

Introducing.....Trevor the 2014 Christmas Tree



The final 4 weeks of 2014 are very much in swing. The weather has finally turned frosty. The nights are resigned to Red wine drinking in the warm or snuggling in front of the TV. It is time to accept Christmas is nigh and that meant a trip to Colombia road flower market for a tree...

Summer 2014 Wedding Guest Outfit



Weddings. I love them. Admittedly so far planning my own wedding hasn't really got off the ground, who would have thought that a Hog Roast with glorified tent and band would set you back well over £10k? Not me! Why can't Monopoly Money be legal tender? Le Sigh...

TTN Reviews: Tesco Free Free Lasagne Sheets



There are certain things that I really have craved since day one of not eating Gluten. Many I have found a good Gluten Free alternative to (Pizza, Bread) but one thing I still had yet to eat again was a good old Lasagne. Until I found Tesco's Free From Lasagne Sheets...

Skin Care: Moisturisers & Primers




As i have mentioned, I am on a mission to control and tame my Acnegenic skin (a term I learnt from watching Lisa Eldridge who I feel has the same skin issues as I do) and avoid going back to Tetracycline tablets, which may work but leaves my body feeling less than happy....

Isn't it funny how the little things in life can shape the way you think/feel/act. I find it even funnier how little acts and moment’s enable me to learn more about myself and who I am.

Birchbox May & June 2014



I used to be a subscriber to a beauty box years ago but decided, after a number of rubbish boxes, to unsubscribe  but recently my love and interest in trying out beauty products that have the potential to improve my skin or enhance my features led me to subscribing to Birchbox.

TTN Visits: Voglia Di Pizza, Rome


Eating Gluten Free in Rome was not as easy as i expected. Okay, so I am known for romanticising everything but I did expect every shop to be able to offer me an abundance of Gluten free goodies seeing as Italians are renowned for their love of food. If you are a big pasta eater, and yet need to live Gluten free, then you will have no problem finding a bowl of gluten free Pasta to feast on. I haven't ever been a big Pasta eater so although grateful, was a little deflated. My real weakness is Pizza and boy was I happy to stumble upon little Voglia Di Pizza in San'Eustachio region of Rome..

Rome 2014

As I sit at my desk with a cup of tea, flicking through my photo's  taken during our City Break to Rome I feel thankful that I took so many because quite frankly it all felt like a dream. A hot, sunny, carb-filled Italian dream.

TTN Reviews: Purition™ Fuelled by Nature Protein



Being a regular runner these days (wahey), the one thing that doesn't change is the feeling of seriously needing food the minute I return from a run. Purition very kindly agreed to send me some sachets of their Gluten free  formula and I couldn't wait to get stuck in....

My Flavour of Spring with Maldon Salt



Maldon's 'Flavour of Spring' Competition has got me thinking about what my 'Flavour of Spring' actually is. I am the kind of person that will eat a salad when it snows if my taste buds are inclined to. The season of Spring conjures up images of Green in my mind. As the weather starts to get milder, the days longer and nature starting to bloom, Green seems a good association. When I think of green foods- I always think instantly of Avocados.

TTN Visits: The Edible Garden Show, Alexandra Palace

I don't cook much with Salt but when I do, the only Salt I use is Maldon Salt flakes because they are quite frankly the best. So when I was asked to be a Maldon Salt Ambassador and given tickets to attend this years Edible Garden Show at Alexandra Palace, how could I have said no?!

TTN Visits: Duck & Waffle, Heron Tower, City of London

Today, I had brunch in the Sky. After getting ourselves onto the waiting list for Brunch at Duck & Waffle about a month ago, we were given a slot for 2:30 today which brightened up our week considerably!

We decided to dress up a little, although the dress code is Smart Causal, I chose my newest purchases and instantly felt special (wearing heels and a Midi skirt has that affect on a sunny Saturday)....
