One Day. Onboard The Silversea

In my 26 years of existence on this planet I've never found myself on a cruise ship. To be honest I'd always thought of them as holidays designed for people other than myself... You know as that saying goes - cruises are for overfeds, newly-weds and nearly deads.

Well I think we can now say I've been well and truly converted after a delightful little day on the majestic Silver Wind, one of Silversea's luxury ships.

One Day. The Magic of Elm Row

Even after two years in this incredible city, you'll often find me spending my days wandering around various neighborhoods. It's in my nature to explore. And wherever I am, from South Kensington to Richmond, I always manage to find such beautiful streets with charming homes and character-filled gardens.

One Day. The Secret Garden

"If you look the right way you can see that the whole world is a garden."

Throughout my childhood I held a fascination for The Secret Garden; it was a movie I watched again and again. There was something about the grand English estate, the walled garden and its hidden treasures that captured my imagination.

Plate Up. Refreshing Peach, Tomato & Mozzarella Salad

There are two types of people in this world. Cup people and cone people. Fridge chocolate people and room-temperature chocolate people. And those who like to mix sweet and savoury and those who don't.

This recipe is for those who love the combination. Fruit meet vegetable. Because like they say, opposites attract. This salad is fresh and zingy, bursting with flavour AND healthy.

Eat Me. Birthday-ing at Bob Bob Ricard, Soho

I love any excuse for a celebration so when a birthday rolls around I'm the first to get excited. Particularly when it's my own. I celebrated turning 26 last Wednesday and my friend Emma and I had only one place in mind for the dinner. Bob Bob Ricard. You may not know the name but I'm certain you've seen the "Press For Champagne" button. Ingenious invention if you ask me!
