The Bletchley


After The Bunyadi (aka the naked restaurant) and Breaking Bad-inspired ABQ, I complete the holy trinity of London cocktail bars with a visit to The Bletchley. Decorated like a WWII bunker, The Bletchley pays tribute to Bletchley Park, home of war-time codebreakers. This immersive experience will test your wits by having you solve puzzles and secret codes to earn your next drink.

Invest in Yourself

Investing in yourself

Why do people treat themselves to a new outfit, a makeover, or just a nice dinner out? A boost of confidence? A reward for all their hard work? Whatever the reason is, investing in yourself to feel better is perfectly okay... and encouraged!

Best Boxing Day Sale Finds

Boxing Day sales

This was my first time spending Christmas in London and I wanted to be part of all British Christmas traditions: roast turkey, home-made stuffing and of course, Boxing Day shopping! I ventured into Westfield Stratford in the early morning of the 26th with no clear plan in mind, but I am quite pleased with the things I was able to find. Read on for some of my favorites.

From color scheme to lighting and comfort features, there are many points to consider to create an atmosphere for relaxation.

Alternative Nights Out

We're only half-way through December and I've already had enough of Christmas parties revolving around excessive eating and drinking. In fact, I'm typing this from my bed while I nurse a hangover from our office party. The thing is, I don't want to turn down any invitation because seeing friends and family is my favorite part of the holiday season. So read on for some of my favorite nights out that don't revolve (entirely) around alcohol.

Never Too Late to Take a Gap Year

Gap year travel

Gap years are stereotypically reserved for those trying to “find themselves” in between life-stages as they work, play and party in sun-drenched climes. While that may be the stereotype, the reality is that you’re never the wrong age to hit the pause button on your routine, hop on a plane and take yourself to the other side of the world for some much-needed perspective. 

Finding a Great Property Investment Opportunity

It's official - I'm at that age when all my friends are starting to settle down and my social media feeds are full of baby pictures. While I am not quite ready to start a family myself, I have definitely considered other huge investments, such as buying property. Finding a place that suits you can be difficult, especially if you want to use it as an investment opportunity. Fortunately, these two criteria can often work together and it is possible to find a place that you can do up and live in.

Travel Ideas for the Broke Millennial

Travel on a Budget

As I'm preparing for my next trip (NY in just over a week's time!), I keep thinking about how it's important to take little breaks now and then to rest and recharge your batteries. But what happens when that little break that you need seems a little bit too expensive? Below are some of my favorite travel ideas for when times are tight, but you have that unmistakable 'itchy feet' feeling.

Diving Into The London Life

London Travel

London has so much to offer! I have lived in London for over 2 years now and I still haven't seen half of the city. Whether you’re looking for one of the best shopping experiences, some of the best nightlife, or just an all round great cultural experience, London has it all. Whether you’re here for a short stay or a long one, here are a few ways for you to go around like a true Londoner. 

Top Sites for Freebie Hunters


The best thing about being an experienced bargain hunter is that you not only get access to freebies before they hit the market, but you also save real money in the process. While we all love free stuff, looking in the wrong places can see you waste a lot of time trawling through waste. Most freebie websites list the same products, so pick your target carefully.

Read on for some top tips on making the most of your short vacay.

Gym Memberships vs Working Out At Home

Fitness at Home

If you're anything like me, you promised yourself to increase your fitness routine and get in shape this year. The issue I face is that gym memberships can cost a lot of money, and it's difficult getting into a routine. In the hope of setting the record straight, I will discuss all the pros and cons of working out at the gym versus getting fit at home. Hopefully, this will help you find something that works for you.

Why You Should Be Spending More Than You Think On Wardrobe Investment Pieces

Investment Pieces

Statement pieces - we all covet them, whether it's a Chanel Jumbo 2.55 classic bag, a pair of red-soled Louboutins or that Burberry trench you saw in the pages of Vogue. What often stops us is the initial cost of these pieces. So if I told you that you should be spending more money on these types of items, you might be shocked. But before you make your final decision, hear me out by reading the post below. 

Upping my Decor Game with Dandelion Interiors


I'm a sucker for pretty Intagram-worthy decor, but I am also terrible at styling my flat. And while I know I'm not going to completely transform my bedroom by moving a few thing around and adding a few extra details, it's amazing how much these details can actually change the mood of the entire room. And what better way to set the mood than by playing around with lighting?

Holiday at Home This Summer

We all love going on holiday overseas. There are so many amazing countries out there to see, but it’s going to be expensive. This year I have already had a big trip to Brazil during Carnival, so a lavish summer holiday might be out of reach. 

Kitchen Wishlist

Kitchen Wishlist

Working full-time and studying part-time means that I had to give up a lot of things, including cooking most of my meals at home. I keep thinking about what it would take to re-kindle my passion for cooking and I've narrowed it down to two things: a young, single personal chef, or a kitchen makeover. Since the first one seems a little far-reached, I started building a kitchen wishlist that I am certain I would get if money was no issue. 

Smiling Fearlessly

I’ve been self-conscious of my teeth for as long as I can remember: from the time I desperately needed braces (exhibit A below) to their now slightly-coffee-stained complexion. However, paying to get them whitened professionally in London is not a realistic option for me as any half-decent dentist will charge me the same as my monthly rent. I have therefore turned to home-based treatments that won’t weigh down on my wallet.

Premium Skincare

More and more often I discover that, when it comes to skincare, you really get what you pay for. And having sensitive skin, it pays out to invest in slightly more expensive specialized products, rather than going for the brand on offer at your local drugstore.
