It’s been a great start to summer 2017, we’ve just enjoyed a whole week of constant sunshine and high temperatures. It was the perfect occasion to go on a little cake date with a good friend of mine. I first came across Peggy Porschen Cakes on Instagram, through different influencers whose photos of pink roses and lush cakes didn’t leave me indifferent. A must-see and must-go spot for bloggers and photography lovers, the place has so much charm everyone stops to take pictures.  Continue reading

What you can expect from me in 2017

Processed with VSCO with a5 preset

New year, new content. New year, new drive. New year, new habits. New motivation. New workflow, new deadlines. This is more or less what you can expect from me in 2017 – and I’ll try my best to stay committed to this. A lot of people have told me that I’m onto something, with this blog. And I’ve started to realise this. The problem is, I’ve not been as dedicated to it as I would have liked to be, over the past year. It’s completely my fault and I plan to change this.

Some time last year I came across a photo of the real Selika Lazevski (pictured above – left) and was left completely mesmerized. Selika was a black  écuyère, a dressage rider who rode in French circuses and hippodromes in the 19th century.

So I’m sure you can imagine how thrilled I was to find out that a film about her life was currently in production, directed by Sybil Mair and starring the very talented actress Karidja Toure, who will be playing the lead role of Selika. This is a story I cannot wait to see unfold on my screen.  Continue reading

Brunch at Christopher’s, Covent Garden ~ An honest review

2016-10-20-05.16.59-1.jpg.jpg

A few days ago, I arranged to meet up with Debra for a quick bite. I had been looking forward to this for a long time. Yes to new friendships, yes to fellow bloggers/vloggers who understand your need to film or photograph every single part of your dining experience. And quite frankly, yes to simply beautiful, kind and funny souls like Debra. I’m always grateful for the people God places on my path.

But back to this restaurant review… Continue reading

Tried and tested ~ Arbonne skin care

I’m currently preparing for our family holiday (6 more sleeps!) but before I go, I really wanted to tell you about an event I attended not too long ago. It was hosted by the lovely Catherine, one of Arbonne’s independent consultants, in a beautiful location near my house.

Arbonne is a brand I had never heard of before, but I’m glad I attended the workshop. It was an afternoon of discovery, skin care and cosmetics chit chat, meeting new people and of course a great occasion to find out more about the brand and all its products – and they do sell quite a few things
