Cleaning the house isn’t fun. It often feels like it’s never ending and we just can’t wait for it to be finished. However, this infographic from HappyCleans looks at how you can turn it into a workout so you can kill two birds with the one stone.

Finally, when the nighttime temperatures started hitting below double figures, I realised I could do with more layers on me. My winter clothes tend to be black but my autumns are brown. So here I am with one of my favourite outfits going for a Sunday walk. 👜 🕶 Continue reading “My autumnal style “
Pyjama or not pyjama? Perhaps not during summer but winter is coming… Even if it promises up to 31 degrees in London next week 🙂 but soon it’s time to cosy up in something comfy! When The Reach London contacted me about their Kickstarter campaign asking for support in launching a new luxury pyjama collection, I must say I was very keen to collaborate with them.
