Cheval Blanc is on Moseley High Street only a few minutes by car from where I live in central Birmingham. Though of course I suggest taking a taxi as drinking and driving is a huge no-no. Always drink responsibly. The bar stands out due to its beautifully bright decor on the outside and the interior is as stylish as I’d hoped for. I love the painted mural of a white horse on the exposed brickwork and the use of bright colours.…

The interest in snail secretions in western skincare only seems to have come about in the past few years so…

I’ve admired Chi Chi Clothing dresses for quite some time and when I spotted that their petite range was expanded I was keen to take a closer look. I find as a petite woman it can be difficult to find dresses for special occasions that fit properly without the need to dash to a seamstress for alterations. And although my seamstress does a good job, sometimes I resent the additional expense after investing in a lovely dress to then have to pay…
