Life lately...

 It's been a while since I've done one of these, but seeing as life has been quite busy recently and I've not had the chance to blog much, I thought now would be the perfect time for a catch up post:

 Tea and cakes with an old uni friend/ Admiring the new Sleek make up palettes/ Visiting Prague 

 Traditional Czech food/ Trying out some local beer/ Inspirational quotes from the John Lennon peace wall

 Nice and sunny back in the UK/ Pretty flowers at a local park/ Lamb koftas and cocktails for dinner

Millennium hotel, Mayfair, Cocktails, Mojito

Last time I attended a cocktail making class, I had so much fun that when the opportunity came up again, I jumped at the chance. This time, the class took place at Millennium hotel, a 336 bed luxury hotel just behind the American embassy in Mayfair.

After a quick tour of the hotel's 4* suites and impressive views, we got to work making cocktails and sampling the barmen's own creations. In recent months, Mojito's have become of one of my favourite drinks, and it was so much fun learning how to make it myself. If you ever get the chance to, then I'd definitely recommend signing up for a cocktail making class or popping in and sampling one of their many delicious cocktails.

Despite what my Instagram photos might suggest, I really do try and be healthy 80% off the time. Recently I had the pleasure of meeting Lily Simpson, founder of Harvey Nichol's newest food counter - Detox kitchen deli. As the name would suggest, everything is freshly prepared on the day and packed full of nutritious vegetables. Considering I usually go for a lunchtime BLT, the food was surprisngly tasty (they have a small selection of lean meats) and I'm now addicted to their guilt free beetrot brownies!


Finally, towards the end of May, we had the chance to spend a week in Prague. Rather annoyingly, it rained pretty much the whole time we were there, but Prague really is a beautiful city, and being 2 keen photographers, we had so much fun exploring and clicking away with our cameras. Look out for a photo diary very soon :)

What have you been up to recently? Have you ever been to Prague?


  1. That deli counter sounds great! As for Prague - I went a few years back and really enjoyed myself. I loved the local delicacy of breaded melted cheese with tartare sauce. They seemed to have it EVERYWHERE!

    1. Ooh that sounds rather yummy! We were so impressed with the food there, definitely one of the highlights of our trip x

  2. I loved all your pictures! Thanks for sharing :) Brings back great memories!

  3. Lovely photos! The food all looks amazing
