Blush and Blow London

It is amazing to see more and more independent places opening up in Parsons Green such as cafes, fashion boutiques and most lately the new blow dry bar, Blush and Blow London owned by the lovely Bridget! Blush and Blow offers blow dries, hairstyling, manicures and make up services amongst other things. I would highly [...]

Rude Health Cafe

Much needed - a Californian style bright and airy cafe has opened just opposite Putney Bridge station where there was not much of an option for a coffee before this place opened! I love the vibe, the staff and coffee. I highly recommend it for brunch or a coffee. It is also a great place [...]

The interiors and the experience are very refreshing - the hotel has returned with it's timeless luxury and impeccable service. I had [...]

Ham Yard Hotel London

Very few words can really describe this amazing discovery I had with one of my friends one early week day morning when we decided to treat ourselves to a breakfast at a hotel. The Firmdale Group is renowned for it's style, luxury and service but little did we expect for the newly opened Ham Yard [...]
