Personal Styling + Home Styling
There is always something new to see and read on my blog, especially Instagram. As a multi-award-winning personal stylist in London and Surrey, I cover a wide range of things that interest me, focused mainly around the following: exploring interiors + art + architecture + style + fashion + travel + food + things that touch my imagination daily.
Where classic meets boutique.
We were lucky enough to stay at the Great Northern Hotel @gnhotel for Tom’s birthday. The rooms evoke the magic, charm and sophistication of the heyday of the railways, brought right up-to-date to delight today’s guests. Beautifully designed to emphasise space, comfort and the character of the building. It’s the original railway hotel site since 1854; this hotel in the heart of the vibrant King’s Cross area didn’t disappoint.
Last week I was invited to the beautiful Middle Eight Hotel in the heart of London’s Covent Garden. In the basement is a fabulous live music venue, @qt_coventgarden, with a bar and restaurant. Every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night, there are two shows by Leo Green @theleogreen and his talented band. Leo is an incredible Saxophone player. The atmosphere was electric; we all got up, danced, and enjoyed a drink and the delicious small plates.
I was invited to @ginzastjames in the heart of London’s Mayfair for a complimentary dinner for two from the 3Gatsu menu (see below). Ginza is a modern Japanese restaurant and bar. The delicious seasonal menu took you through a food lover’s journey to Japan and a complimentary cheeky cocktail. Ginza has been awarded the 2AA Rosette award for culinary excellence.
Beyond the streets of London pays homage to the colourful and monumental moments from the words of graffiti, street, art, hip-hop and punk rock and the artists who immortalised events. From painting trains to social activism, clothes, and soundtracks. The exhibition takes over the entirety of the iconic Saatchi Gallery, examining how this cultural narrative shift is the public’s perception of underground art and culture, leading to a global creative revolution.
My talented friend Taline @katalina.aromas makes all these beautiful scented handmade candles and room scents. She is inspired by nature and hopes lighting these lovely candles will fill your home with a beautiful scent and create beautiful memories. Available on Etsy, please DM her for more information on how to purchase.
I first had this delicious salad at book club made by fellow book clubber Rosie, and it was a recipe from Waitrose. I’ve adapted it to make it more flavoursome.
Cauliflower and chickpeas are roasted with fragrant garam masala to give this veg-packed salad a gently spiced warmth. I like to serve it with roast chicken, pizza or salmon.
