Afternoon Tea At The Den, St. Martins Lane Hotel

Afternoon Tea The Den St Martins Lane Hotel London

Walking into the St. Martins Lane Hotel you are hit with colour, stand out art and over sized chess pieces that wouldn’t look out-of-place in an art gallery. The hotel is known for it’s afternoon teas including the popular Asia de Cuba at Cafecito and now the most recent addition, afternoon tea at The Den. Being Afternoon Tea week, we couldn’t resist trying it out.

The Den is as you enter the hotel on your right and is a small opening which reveals a classic British lounge, a mid-sized getaway that represents the perfect retreat within a nice hotel in the centre of London. We were shown to our table at the back of the well designed dining room. Our table was actually a backgammon table with two drawers at both seats surrounded by oak and large windows.  Read More »

Summer Holiday Beauty Checklist

Holiday Beauty Checklist

Are you off holiday this month? If so take a read through my beauty checklist, a few things I like to do to get ready for holiday.

Don’t Forget Your Feet

So 7-10 days before holiday (I am that organised) I like to make sure my feet are looking their best. We don’t always get full use of sandals here in the UK so I want my feet to be beach ready. A great idea is to use Starskin’s amazing exfoliating magic socks. You pop these exfoliating socks on for 60 minutes and they will remove calluses, reduce cracked heels and give you baby soft feet in 7-10 days. I definitely recommend doing this quite a bit before holiday if you have time as your feet will start to peel, so ideal to do it when you won’t always be in sandals. If you don’t quite fancy that then try the Starskin nourishing and cooling socks which will intensely nourish and soften your feet. These are done in 20 mins and you will have instantly soft feet.

Sunday Brunch At Pharmacy 2

Pharmacy 2

I’m going to be brutally honest, when I first saw Pharmacy 2 the latest restaurant from Damien Hirst and Mark Hix, the interior pretty much put me off ever eating there and I never thought I would. That was until I attended the recent Jeff Koon’s exhibition at Newport Street Gallery, where I stumbled upon said restaurant and their Sunday brunch menu.

Walking inside is like an art gallery in itself and you start to understand it all a little more when you see it for your own eyes. Pharmacy 2, funnily enough the concept is just that, a pharmacy. The back walls are lined with prescription drugs and things you wouldn’t find unfamiliar in your local Boots. The rest is covered in wallpaper which lists each type of pill and medicine, with a cabinet as you walk in with each of them. As well as the seats covered in bright and fun pill designs, I’ll take the Valium seat. Read More »
