My Sole

I love my new soles. Oh I do adore a new pair of shoes but  I am normally drawn to those glamorous over priced, shockingly high, unbelievably painful party shoes that sit beautifully in my wardrobe and are rarely worn.

I have fallen deeply in love with a a pair of shoes called Martha. And they are glamorous but not over priced, shockingly flat as they’re pumps and unbelievably comfortable. But best of all they are  perfect for any party. There is a reason these are perfect shoes and thats because a great deal […]

Reflexions Reflexology

Tucked right underneath the building of 250 Kings Road there is a very humble looking beauty salon.
