A throwback to the discovery of the breath-taking palatial hotel.   The rumours of the long-awaited Sex and the City reboot is finally confirmed, I couldn't help but reminisce about a beautiful hotel that reminds me of the successful show. A very long time ago (2013), a dear friend and I had been in search of a short weekend break to a location we had never been before, so when we stumbled upon Taj Palace Hotel, Marrakech (now renamed Sahara Palace Hotel via Secret Escapes, the package deal was unbelievably too good to ignore.   The Abu Dhabi segment of the movie Sex and the City 2 released in 2010 was actually filmed...

Welcome to the '9 Favourite Things' section, each month I'm going to list my top 9 favourite products of the month, that I have tried, reviewed & liked. 1. Ami Whipped Shea Butter The Ami brand is a small business, black owned by a lady called Dami, who's backstory caught my attention and decided to purchase a few products from her natural range. The Bergamot whipped shea body butter is a dream on the skin and has become a firm favourite for me. When you apply the body butter, you can see as it literally melts into the skin, glides, absorbs and...

I love a bit of history, especially when it comes to a beautiful glamorous restaurant that has over 90 years of history and it’s still exudes the same class and style it had from the late 1920s. Quaglino's is an extremely beautiful restaurant hidden in St James, the heart of Mayfair in London. It’s ‘respectable’ underplayed doorway cannot prepare you for the wow factor you’re about to experience when you glide down the first set of stairs. You literally feel like you’re delving into the classic 1920s. The restaurant has so much history and if the walls could talk it’ll have a whole...

“ Stay home .. but if you must go out you can / You must not mix with other families but if you must you can meet up with one friend or 2 or 3 or 4 or 5 / Don’t go to work but go to work if you must. " We really don’t know where we are coming or going in these Covid-19 streets of UK, but staying indoors is the best way to keep you and your loved ones safe and keep the virus contained. Remember .. HANDS . FACE . SPACE .  One thing for sure, there are...

We've just completed week 1 of the UK mandatory lockdown. I’m sure I’m not alone when it comes to getting complacent about picking up the same fast food or ordering in your favourite takeaway meal, in which ‘favourite’ is now a loosely used word. So .. starting off my blog on restaurant reviews with a great gem I came across last month. If you want something different, a high quality BBQ style street food in the comfort of your own home with all the prep work & part cooking is done for you, I would suggest trying out By Charred delivery service ‘At Home...

Phewwwwww…! 2020….what a challenging year! Amongst other things, I really miss the excitement involved and the countdowns to going on trips. COVID-19 travel restrictions are being lifted gradually, for it to be ok to travel again….safely. As much as I love and miss travelling to different countries and experiencing the vast culture, I’m still not ready to jump on a plane as restrictions are being lifted. Safety over everything, and I want to ensure the ‘air’ is clear and I’m comfortable with the next chosen flight and destination in order to fully enjoy future travel experiences. In the meantime, I’m going...

Here lies a little throwback to an amazing time had by family & friends at Le Boo's 40th birthday organized and held by the amazing event planners of Heritage Awali Resort, Mauritius a couple of years ago. This resort is definitely in my top 5 resorts I would love to go back to stay, as flight restrictions are gradually being lifted due to Covid-19. At the time, our flights, airport transfer and accommodation were organised by travel agent Kuoni, but you can look for the best deals online either as a package or booking flights and accommodation separately. We were a party...
