The Longer You Leave It…


…the more difficult it is to come back to blogging. I only meant to take a few weeks off over Christmas and New Year, but last year got to me just a little bit too much. It was in many ways the best and worst year of my life. Yes, there was Brexit and Trump but looking at the year on a personal and professional …

5 Things I Learnt When My Beauty Blog Was Hacked By Terrorists


Hello dear readers, it’s been a while! The reason I’ve been absent from my blog is mainly that I’ve not been able to login to the back end of the site due to a serious hacking we experienced last year by a terrorist group. Regular readers may remember some graphic and unpleasant video footage that took over my websites last year. Well, at the time …

The Launch of Equazen


Earlier in the year I was invited me along to learn more about Equazen – at the launch of the brand in the UK. We all know that we should be eating, ideally, a couple of portions of fish a week, one of which should be oily fish. I for one aim for at least that, although I was put off for a while from …


Learning How To Make Candles in London


Last month, I was invited along to Lumiere de Londres studio to partake in a candle making workshop with a lovely lady named Sakeena Edo. In the workshop, we completed three projects in a relatively short amount of time – an aromatherapy candle, a massage candle and wax melts. The latter I hadn’t heard of prior to the event but Sakeena advised that a previous …


The Shard and Afternoon Tea in London


It’s just a couple of days till Mr BB’s birthday as I write this, but this trip was Mr BB’s birthday present from my parents last year – a trip up The Shard followed by Afternoon Tea at The Novotel South. We had a lovely day back in January, it was pretty cold so we both wrapped up warm and set off on our little …


Biteable Beauty Bites Back!


My dear readers, forgive me for I have sinned! I left you hanging for almost 3 months! If you looked at my Instagram prior to last Monday, you’d be led to assume that I completed my Fierce Grace 30 Day Hot Yoga Challenge, celebrated with a bottle of organic Prosecco from Earth Foods and then disappear down the rabbit hole! Admittedly, Twitter has been somewhat more …


Christmas at Kew – Kew Gardens 2014


It seems fitting that on the day after we (finally!) took our Christmas tree down I share this post about our trip to Christmas at Kew Gardens, if only so I can feel the Christmas magic for just a day longer! I love how glittery, sparkly and shiny the season is, so when my parents asked if we would like to go and see the …


Make at Home Food & Drink – Chai Tea


We recently had some friends over for dinner, and one of them very kindly gifted us some Masala Chai Tea from Tea2You in Borough Market. I can see from their website that their blend consists of black tea, cardamom, cinnamon and cloves, and this is somewhat similar to the recipe I make chai tea with at home. Which as I think it’s so delicious I …
