Ever wondered what it’s like to live in Canary Wharf? There’s something so fascinating about London’s famous business district – suits and skyscrapers, but also modern art, museums, shopping and top-notch restaurants. Canary Wharf station is a swift nine-minute journey from Stratford or Waterloo on the Jubilee line. If the weather’s good, hop on the Clipper or take the DLR for a scenic route through London’s East.
There’s more than one way to make a casual outfit look chic. There’s the usual suspects: fancy shoes, designer handbag, red lipstick, that’ll take the ‘blah’ out of your look. The simplest way to make a statement is with a stylish shoe and although sneakers can sometimes come across too casual, this pair I’m wearing is anything but basic. A great alternative, and more affordable to Gucci. No wonder Instagram is overflowing with outfit shots featuring, you guessed it, these Russell & Bromley trainers.
Prevention is better than cure, and I’m sure you’ve heard that at least a handful of times before, but when it comes to our skin we want a product to do both. As a digital influencer I have access to plenty of potions and lotions, but it’s this skincare advice that my mother passed down that helped me stop wrinkles and dark spots caused by UV in their tracks.
As clouds give way to sunshine, it’s time to enjoy London at its brightest and best. Although considered to be outlandishly expensive, and sometimes with fair reasons – there are cocktails that cost the same as our weekly grocery shopping – a day out in London doesn’t have to involve spending a small fortune.
While those last-minute holiday plans looked tempting, this year I decided to put them on hold and enjoy the ultimate Easter break staycation at Jumeirah Carlton Tower instead. With an impossible-to-beat location in the heart of Knightsbridge, among the city’s finest luxury shopping, Jumeirah Carlton Tower is home to 216 rooms including 58 suites. Most have spectacular London views – from the London Eye to Big Ben and the Shard – the breathtaking views could be admired from both our bedroom and the sophisticated living area.
I’m getting very excited about Easter, because it means I can finally spend some quality time with my family. Secondly, the weather is warming up which means one thing: cocktails in the garden. And thirdly, well, chocolate – Easter is the perfect excuse for stuffing my face.
