Heads up – this isn’t my usual blog post but I have to make an exception as I really want to share this with you. I have no idea who said this originally but I couldn’t agree with it more (if you do know who wrote/said this, please do let me know). I suppose this … Continue Reading

Kings Cross St Pancras is one of London’s most iconic buildings. I still remember vividly the first time I saw it – I was transfixed and stared at it in awe for ageeees! Well till we drove past it anyway. 🙂 Back then, I remember the whole neighbourhood being slightly grimy yet this in now way … Continue Reading

I’m a sucker for converted open spaces – I’ve said time and time how much I love the juxtaposition of the old and new in these living spaces (yes, these are not just ‘apartments’ to me, they’re so much more than that) and judging from your comments on here, Instagram, Twitter and Facebook, you’re fans of … Continue Reading

I’m too excited to sit still – I’ve almost fallen off my chair in excitement and no, this is not one of those times where I’ve had way too many cups of coffee! I’m very pleased to announce that *cue dramatic pause* THE DEPARTURE LOUNGE IS NOW OPEN!!! Confused? What is The Departure Lounge? I … Continue Reading

I’m a sucker for beaches – I love the smell, the relaxing sounds of the crashing waves, the sunshine, relaxing with drinks on them… Darn! Got that silly Piña colada song stuck in my head now! “If you like Piña Coladas…” The thought of beaches and this weekend got me thinking about what comes naturally with them … Continue Reading

This is one of the easiest party decorations you’ll find out there (and one of the cheapest too). Best part is that it adds such a cool effect to your party and can be installed in pretty much any room at the party! Cue – the Dance-floor Disco Balloons! All you need are the following: … Continue Reading

Simple and very quick to do! All you need are: 1.) Old tin(s) 2.) A nail (or something similar to punch holes in the tin – and a hammer of course) 3.) Tea Lights (real or fake) First things first, remove the lid on the tin – we do need a way to get our … Continue Reading

I found some fantastic shelves and racks that I just couldn’t wait to share! How amazing are these? They also have the potential to change your living area so much! I think my favourite thing about them is how unusual they are  – the patterns are borne of regular everyday patterns but used in a … Continue Reading

Yes – the Ellen DeGeneres! Turns out she loved redecorating homes and then selling them off. Anyway, there was a feature this week on her and it’s the first time I even knew she was a property mogul of some sort. Figured I might as well pass on this info – along with photos of a … Continue Reading

This is a great idea which takes barely any effort at all! All you need is a ladder (make sure it’s a solid one and not a weak/shaky one) and some wood planks. If you’re really ‘particular’ about it (I would be) – get a hammer and some nails and fix the wood planks onto … Continue Reading

I mentioned in a previous post how London is not short of sleek spaces and the ladies over at Design Box London have definitely further strengthened my argument. I found myself perusing their Facebook page the other day and I kinda got lost in all the beautiful properties they have on there – is it … Continue Reading

A quick weekend lifehack! Or rather – a set of 3 different weekend lifehacks. 🙂 I recently found myself going through some old items at home (how did I end up with so much stuff I don’t even remember buying?!?!) and I started to wonder if there were ways to use them differently instead of … Continue Reading

I love two types of living spaces – (1) Clean and shiny minimalist spaces  or (2) Old rustic buildings. Typically, you never really find a good mix of both (if you have any hints or tips on where to find said mixes in London – please do let me know). My ideal is to get … Continue Reading
