Patches & Pins

Clothing with patches high street

One of the biggest trends for this Spring/Summer is embellishment of patches and pins on denim and leather, as seen on the Marc Jacobs runway. The trend has developed into the high-street with numerous retailers like Zara, Stradivarius and Topshop offering all different ways to wear them. Alternatively if you are feeling creative, why not grab a denim jacket or jeans and a few patches and get creative to make your own.

This is definitely one of the hottest trends of the season and so I’ve picked out my favourite pieces you can get now on the high-street. Read More »

The Meat Co, Westfield London

Wagyu steak at The Meat Co

The Meat Co was originally founded in South Africa in 2000 and made its way over to London back in 2008, where it took up residence at the first ever Westfield London and was also known as The Meat & Wine Co.

Danny and I figured it was about time for an update and decided to take a visit to see what The Meat Co had to offer us eight years later. The steakhouse is spread over two floors, downstairs is a bar area and upstairs the dining area which also hosts private dining rooms. You can’t help but notice the walls lined with wine – glass panelling covering wine bottles upon wine bottles.

We were shown to our table which was nice and roomy and had plenty of space to relax and enjoy what was going to be a meat feast of sorts. The menu is really quite large, so do take your time over it. We went to choose drinks first and this also had lots of exciting cocktails and wine to choose from. As always we went for a glass of white and red. I chose the Sauvignon Blanc and Danny the Estate Malbec. These were both large glasses and when they arrived they definitely were that. Read More »

Cargo Cosmetics

Cargo Cosmetics Review

Cargo Cosmetics is a must-have beauty brand from the US and with celebrity make-up artist Mario Dedivanovic as a fan, it’s obvious to see why.

I got my hands on a few pieces to try out including the liquid foundation which comes in a squeezy tube, so you can get every last drop out – genius no? and their blush and bronzer from the Swimmables range – a water-resistant range. Read More »

Trying Out A Qi Energy Treatment

Qi Wellness Treatment

I had never heard of a Qi energy treatment until an email dropped in my inbox a couple of weeks ago from the Qi Wellness Centre in Central London. I was intrigued by what I had read and so decided to give one of their energy treatments a try.

Everyone has Qi energy, it flows through all living things and helps to support our organs, cells and the overall functioning of our body. Due to the somewhat busy and hectic lifestyles we have today, it can drain us of this energy. Computer and mobile phone use can definitely be a factor of this drained energy. Even with a well based diet and exercise we can often just feel physically tired, because we have depleted our use of the Qi energy.

As soon I entered the Qi Wellness Centre I instantly felt calm, I’m not sure whether it was the thought that my energy was going to be healed or just the candles and aroma burning that instantly gave me the calming effect. I had a glass of water and filled out a form with general details about my health, whilst I had a short wait for Emilie, who is a Principal Practitioner and was going to be healing my energy.

‘Hair We Should Have’ With Jamie Stevens

Jamie Stevens Salon

Jamie Stevens is a renowned multi award-winning hairdresser and has worked on top TV shows such as X-Factor and This Morning, as well as a list of celebrity clients. Danny and I were invited down to his salon in South London to get ‘the hair we should have’. Having our hair cut together is something we have never done before and now that we have, I kind of liked it.

I was going to have Jamie cutting my hair which I was really excited about, whilst Danny was in the capable hands of one of Jamie’s top stylists, Jonathan. I’m pretty fussy about getting my hair cut and I don’t really do that many hair cut/colour reviews because of it, but I felt like a bit of a change so decided to let myself be transformed.

So here is how we got on…. Read More »
