I am ever so excited to finally unveil this beautiful collaboration video with Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG). Earlier in the year, we partnered up to film a Destination Guide to London (natch) which followed me through ‘a day in my life’.
This particular day of adventure consisted of meeting Jo Malone at her new fragrance store, Thomas Cubitt, Chelsea Physic Garden, Sipsmith, Biscuiteers, George Northwood, Mr Fogg’s, and Duck & Waffle.

I am no-ones definition of a party girl but the celebratory stars aligned last week to land me to my first-ever morning rave.
Not just any rave, either. This one – the final event in Lipton‘s Daybreaker campaign – took place in the secret Magic Roundabout bar in the centre of Old Street Station’s roundabout.
Above hoards of bustling Eastenders and city workers, Norman Jay MBE cranked out the playlist of all playlists while my fellow morning ravers and I glugged ice tea upon ice tea, chasing everything down with dirty breakfast treats from Burger Bear.
There is no greater pleasure than making a house a home. Though I have yet to buy my ‘forever home’, I really lucked out in my newest London abode: high ceilings, great light, and a neutral colour palette.
For the items I had collected over the years, it was a perfect canvas but a canvas larger than anticipated. Naturally, I went on a bit of a furniture binge.
One of the most exciting new additions was a gorgeous vintage-inspired sofa. The Moray – from DFS – is curvy, oatmeal-coloured, and acts as a perfect focal point for all the smaller gold and cream accents in the living room.
Though I had quite a few pieces from Made in my arsenal already, the discovery of their social network (Unboxed) increased my wishlist tenfold. A gorgeous sideboard later, the room was complete (I have since uploaded everything to Unboxed, obvs).

Norwich was not on the bucket list this year. Australia? Italy? Totes. The Eastern edge of England? Not so much.
As fate would have it, I befriended a lovely journalist from Norwich and – by the fierce power of words – found myself excited to explore the city.
Less than a month later, I hopped on a Greater Anglia from Liverpool Street to Norwich and First Class-ed my way towards medieval adventure (travel tip: First Class is almost empty on the weekends and therefore much cheaper!).
