Model Crush: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

Confession time….I have a little model crush. I keep spotting Rosie Huntington-Whiteley at red carpet events recently and I just can’t stop gushing about how amazing she looks! Last week at the Elle Style Awards in London, Rosie was crowned Model of the Year and it is not hard to see why. Twenty seven-year-old Rosie, has a hugely successful international career spanning more than ten years, during which she has graced international catwalks and campaigns for brands including Burberry, Prada, Givenchy and Balmain, plus also looked stunning in Marks & Spencers campaigns with (dreamy) Ryan Reynolds.

Little H in Parsons Green

You might remember me loving Hally’s in Parsons Green (review here),  so when I found out late last year that the husband and wife team behind Hally’s were opening a little sister cafe just across the road, I couldn’t wait to check it out. Little H opened their doors in January and it’s a slightly more deli style / pop-in eatery but with the same emphasis on “Californian-inspired food” ranging from breakfast, brunch and freshly made salads served alongside their fresh juices and smoothies.

On Valentines Day I met up at Little H with my friend & fellow blogger Tania (www.joyfelicityjane.com) to catch up with her following her one year adventure in Australia so we could talk life, love, travel, photography, blogging and food; all of our favourite topics basically!

Petersham Nurseries’ Flourless Orange & Almond Cake

One Sunday afternoon at the end of summer, I spent in the sunshine enjoying tea and cakes at the lovely Petersham Nurseries near Richmond. If you haven’t been to the Petersham Nurseries before, then I definitely recommend a visit. It’s a top rated international garden centre, an oasis away from the bustle of London, and somewhere to find antiques and gifts or just a place to sit, wonder and enjoy delicious food or homemade cakes in their teahouse.

Playing small

Playing small

That time of the week again! It can be tempting sometimes to play small, to just settle and take it easy. It would definitely make things a bit easier sometimes because going after what you really want demands time, effort and possible gain along the way. But it’s also there where you will grow and live fully! Love this quote for that reason…

Oscars 2015 Best & Worst Dressed

Did you catch some of the 2015 Academy Award show on Sunday night? British actor Eddie Redmayne won best actor (for his brilliant portrayal of Stephen Hawking) at this year’s Oscars, while Julianne Moore is named best actress and Birdman best picture. Now I love movies so I always find it very interesting to see who wins what, but what I really love to do most is reviewing all the red carpet gowns to pick my best & worst dressed of the night. Have to say I was a little underwhelmed this year and wasn’t blown away by that many people. But here is a quick breakdown of my best and worst dressed of the 2015 Oscars.
