Getting holiday ready // Beauty by Joanna

As all ladies know, when you’re heading off on holiday, there’s quite a lot of maintenance that has to be arranged before you jet off. And in case I haven’t spoken about it enough already, I’m off on a rather exciting trip tomorrow! Thankfully I had the amazing Beauty by Joanna on hand to help.

The Amazing Chocolate Workshop

I went home last week to escape the city and spend some well over due time with the family. After spending the morning helping siblings with home work, watching my sisters dance routine and playing football in the garden, my mum and I popped into Walton to do a quick spot of shopping. As we walked into The Heart shopping centre we spotted The Amazing Chocolate Workshop’s stall.

Riverside Walk Event

Growing up I think it’s safe to say I spent pretty much all of my teenage years in Kingston, be it shopping trips in my early teens, to very messy nights out at all the clubs while at uni and working all of my retail career there. I know it well and am very fond of it as an area. So when i was contacted about coming to an event down by the river, I simply couldn’t say no, even if i had landed from Amsterdam that very morning!

Anyone that remembers Kingston a couple of years back will know Riverside area, just over Kingston bridge, as being a bit of a no man’s land. A handful of nice restaurants towards the top and a couple of old man’s pubs near TKMaxx end. A complete waste of a beautiful spot if you ask me. However, it has now been given the most beautiful face lift!

Thaikhun Guildford

Thai food is probably my fave food, if not fave then 100% top 3, so you can image my excitement when I was invited to the launch of a new Thai restaurant last week out in Guildford.

Thaikhun, which is part of the Thai Leisure Group, currently has 6 different restaurants all over the country and have finally opened a 7th down south in Guildford! Based in the middle of Friary Street it couldn’t be in a better location if it tried, sandwiched between the high street and the Friary Centre it’s the perfect spot pre, post or mid shopping trip!

The Joys of Commuting 

As many of you are aware, I commute, like the majority of the of the population. It’s never a fun experience, simply a means to an end, however what I have noticed over the years is that there are very different types of commuters, some more irritating that others, some just plain weird and most that just don’t give a fuck! So I thought I would put together a little guide of the usual suspects for anyone who is about to start embarking on the commuting journey….

The Coronation Cup

A couple of weekends back, Ed and I were invited to the Polo. Having never been before, but having an old love of horses, from back in my pony club days, and loving any excuse to dress up, i was more than excited! Plus, it was out near my neck of the woods at The Guards Polo Club near Egham. Win, win, as far as i was concerned!

Birthday weekender – Foxhills!

In my very fragile state i clambered out of bed and packed my overnight bag, making sure i remembered my swim stuff, gym stuff and a fancy outfit for dinner! We jumped in the car and after making a quick pitstop for recovery snacks made the quick 15min drive over to the AMAZING Foxhills!

This place is just STUNNING!!!!! As you pull in through the huge gates you quickly get your first glimpse of the manor house between the tree lined drive way.
