Decorating the Dream Flat

Decorating the Dream Flat

Searching for a dream flat in the city shouldn’t be this difficult. All I desire is a pretty one bedroom apartment complete with balcony or a little outdoor space for post-work mojitos. In the meantime, I’ve taken a well-deserved break from flat hunting to browse our homeware collection for a few interior design ideas. I...

LOST IN PIXELS: FINDING YOUR DREAM CAMERA

Buying a camera is an investment – it’s not a flip decision made at lunchtime in between choosing a sandwich, a birthday card or even a pair of shoes. It takes time, money and (worse still) technical know-how, in order to  get the right one. 3 things that many of us don’t have. Thankfully for...
How to get the perfect tourist snap (in time for the Royal Wedding)

How to get the perfect tourist snap (in time for the Royal Wedding)

With only one week to go until the Royal Wedding, I enlisted the help of Jessops camera specialist, Nicky King, to help me brush up on my photography skills – so that come April 29th I could return from Wills’ and Kate’s big day with more than a touch of sunburn and an’ I Love...
Royal Wedding fever

Royal Wedding fever

I told myself  that I wouldn’t get caught up in all the Royal Wedding hullabaloo… and yet here I am thinking about how I’m going to spend the day… do I go to Hyde Park, or hold a street party? What will Kate wear? Will she get to have flowers in her hair or will she...

6 Things we learned from the Ideal Homes Show

6 Things we learned from the Ideal Homes Show

On Friday, I made like a roving reporter and hit the UK’s biggest consumer event, the Ideal Home Show. Armed only with a camera, a bottle of water and my trusty iphone (essential for timely tweets!) – I battled the crowds to discover what’s hot and what’s not in the world of home interiors. Here’s...

The Great Pancake Debate…

The Great Pancake Debate…

American or British? Savoury or sweet? Classic lemon & sugar or indulgent chocolate? The pancake debate was raging in my kitchen last night as the other half and I ate ourselves into a sugary, pancake-fuelled stupor. And, dear blog readers, it was all in the name of research – so we can bring you a...
Barista quality coffee in only 25 seconds – hallelujah!

Barista quality coffee in only 25 seconds – hallelujah!

It’s Friday, we’re all feeling a little bit tired and fuzzy and we could really do with a  steaming hot, pulse-racingly amazing espresso. One with a smooth texture, nutty taste and enough caffeine to take us from bleary-eyed drones, to intellectual eagles of the office…So we’re not asking for much then… Luckily, the arrival of...
