As with many London boroughs the lines are often pretty blurred when it comes to where on starts and the other ends. This time around though, we’re having a plug at Southwark, or that inconspicuous bit by Waterloo, as it might be more commonly known. However, this part of London does in fact...

The city of lights, the city of love, a museum town, in all and any of its guises, Paris is instantly recognisable by its Hausmann architecture, iconic landmarks and historic monuments punctuated with modern structures. It’s a city people fall in love in and with thanks to its streets championing food, fashion and art. With spring in the air and an invitation from Small Luxury Hotels of the World to discover three of their hotels, I turned to the quote that inspired a thousand Instagram posts and said ‘yes, Paris is always a good idea.’ Arriving in the most civilised […]

It all began when I was younger, circa eight years old, and my parents ordered me my first one from our local shop, lemon chicken and egg fried rice being the order of the day. Little did I know that I’d be eagerly ordering lemon chicken for years to come – you know how it is, when you’re having Chinese you peruse the menu for all of two minutes but you always, yes always, venture back to your trusty favourite. That was until I got older and with it, I like to […]
