Today is mental health awareness day. I look back at a tough period of time and I would like to use this post to remind everyone to be kind, as you never know what battle the person in front of you is fighting. It costs nothing. The beach in Santa Monica – beautiful for most but for me, it represents my downfall in 2018. Standing here a year later and being able to face my failures both personally and professionally has been an intense but therapeutic experience . In 2018 I felt everything in my life, personally and professionally was…

I recently went for a few days to beautiful Cyprus. I can only admire Grand Resort Limassol for the great service from landing to take off, they looked after me so well. After a not very pleasant British Airways flight, due to their new decision to reduce leg space in economy but still charge premium prices, I was a bit cranky on landing. However, my driver was waiting for me, right outside the gate. Whisked me away in 2 minutes, and I was at the back of an air-conditioned Mercedes, with a large bottle of ice cold water and some…

Cannes, ah the beautiful, magical town nestled in the South France. The epitome of classic luxury. Needless to say, I got extremely excited getting to visit last month, and also getting to stay in no other but Hotel Barriere le Majestic Cannes. Hotel Barriere le Majestic Cannes invented luxury it seems, and I had the most fabulous experience during my stay. I got picked up from Nice Airport and driven straight to Cannes, to only be whisked away to my enormous room, overlooking the pool and the Mediterranean . I genuinely felt like a princess. The room Hotel Barriere le…

If you have asked me what do I know about Rosé Champagne prior to last week, I probably would have said I know it’s rose in colour. However, I attended a fabulous masterclass of Rosé champagne pairing and tasting and I learnt oh so much. I have never been a person who understands wine (like the people who can taste, swirl and comment smartly on what they are drinking), I just drink what they give me and say mmm. If someone asked me to about champagne, it gets even worse. Not anymore. Following this fabulous lunch and masterclass with the…

Jersey is  part of the Channel islands, located between England and France and is just 30 minutes away on a plane from Gatwick. It is the perfect place to do a quick getaway when the hustle and bustle gets much, enjoying endless beaches, Michelin star food and beautiful sights. I had the pleasure of visiting back in March. The island is relatively small, and you can drive everywhere. St Helier (island centre area) is about 20 minutes drive from the airport. We stayed at The Club hotel, which is a centrally located, five star property which boasts a spa which…

There is so much rumbling about #ad on Instagram, that it got me thinking. When is an ad, truly an ‘ad’? There is the obvious, old school thought – if you are getting paid to promote something, then it is advertisement. I feel the world is slightly different than that though. Although the ASA is really trying hard to put guidelines around ads on instagram, I still feel there is a trick missing. What about the ads? I do ads, I do free stuff, I also do my own content. However, there is one thing I do not do -…

I am writing this post for the industry, not that one more piece of content will change the world but it makes me feel better for sharing. I am writing this post for all the content creators out there as well – do not sell yourselves short and appreciate your own work. Instagram and blogging have become  full time jobs/small business ventures for many. However, it seems that the marketing and PR industries still see it as a free form of advertising, or a meal for 2 worth of ads. I believe everything in life has a price (except all…

I was invited to review Roslin beach hotel. I recently got to visit Southend on Sea and the beautiful Roslin Beach hotel. I have never been this side of the coast and I was so pleasantly surprised by how cute it is. The hotel is located right in the middle of the beautiful promenade of Southend on Sea, opening up to stunning sunrise and sunset views for its guests. Roslin Beach hotel has been recently refurbished and the rooms have taken inspiration from the sea in their color scheme and details. Check in It was so flawless and personal.…
