I've moved!

I've finally taken the leap and moved my blog over to a SquareSpace hosting platform. It's much easier to use and looks a lot prettier too. Find me over at and follow along on Bloglovin' too.

10 Things That Have Made Me Happy This Week

All I've wanted to do this week is lie in a bikini by a pool / on a beach / by any water imaginable I don't really mind. Instead, I've been working on a 10 day event and living in a house in South London with a group of students, staying with Debrett's for a summer school programme - not quite the same?! The house is, however, beautiful. Used by the White Company for filming and photo shoots, everything is big, bright, white and airy. Its a great place to stay and if it wasn't for having to work while I'm here, would definitely feel like a holiday! There have been a few things keeping me happy this week - always the little things! - and my top ten are below...

Loving Breakfast

The breakfast I ate as a child now horrifies me: white bread, or worse still nothing at all. Not for want of trying on the part of my mother but I was definitely stubborn and I have no idea how I got through the day. Now, if I don't eat within about half an hour of waking up I am nothing but grumpy, can barely function and feel pretty rubbish.

10 Things I Learnt From Goodroots London

Goodroots London is an urban wellness and food festival, which was hosted for the first time this year at the amazing MC Motors venue in Dalston. Sarah and I headed down for the day on Saturday and were more than a little bit impressed with the set-up, speakers and food offering. Full post tomorrow but here are 10 things that I learnt from Goodroots London. Here's to next year!

On Sunday morning I met up with Gee at Dolphin Square in Pimlico for a trial of the gym. My current gym contract comes to an end this month so I am taking the opportunity to try out some new venues. We started with an Iyengar yoga class, before heading to the mats for a quick workout and ending with an amazing swim, steam and sauna. It was such a perfect way to start a Sunday morning and so worth getting up early for. 

We finished at the gym around 12pm - otherwise known as brunch time! After a quick google in the changing rooms, we decided to head to Gail's for some food. The sun was shining and it was a gorgeous walk across Pimlico, with its stunning Regency buildings and gorgeous townhouses in varying pastels.

The Alchemist

The Alchemist Bevis Marks is described as a 'glint of gold against the charcoal and black suits of the city' and is the perfect place for post-work tipples. Most of my friends work in and around the city and I've managed to visit twice in the last two weeks, and am sure that a third trip isn't far away! 
Located just a short stroll away from Liverpool Street Station, between Aldgate and Brick Lane, the location is one of five from the brand, with all of the other locations up North, including Manchester and Leeds. 

I love the concept for its sleek design, amazing and eccentric menu and knowledgable staff. The prices by no means match the style and service - cocktails are priced around the £8-mark. Its a little bit different to the 'usual' city offering, very relaxed in atmosphere despite being busy throughout the evening. The design work is stunning but it's the menu that truly makes the venue.
