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 »

Tapas & Tate

Paula The LDN Diaries

The Tate Modern has just opened up a new building, I do love a visit to the Tate and so definitely had to go and check out the new area.  The new building is entitled the Switch House has a twisted pyramid like shape and has ten levels all the way up to the top, which will house a whole array of modern art. At the top there is a viewing platform which I was excited to go up, but before all that, it was time for food.

As it was lunch, Danny and I went for a stunning tapas brunch at Camino just right opposite the Tate Modern. It was a lovely sunny day so we took a table outside on the terrace and got ready to fill our bellies with lots of lovely tapas. Camino means  ‘path’ or ‘journey’ in Spanish and it refers to owner Richard Bigg’s first road trip across Spain in a tiny black Mini. Armed with a map and a camera, he fell in love with the country, so much so that he quit his uninspiring City job as a trader and decided to continue travelling. Read More »
