The best thing about heading off on holiday has to be finding the golden opportunities to shop. The first stop has to be World Duty Free at the airport and luckily I live only 15 minutes away from the one at Birmingham International Airport. I was invited to visit as part of the Jet Set Tour along with other bloggers. It was quite a surprise to go along for a look around World Duty Free as it has had quite a…

I love Indian food so an invite to Itihaas was always going to be greeted positively from me. The summer menu launch was a busy affair with lots of bloggers, and plenty of canapés and cocktails to kick the evening off. We were then treated to a sit down sampling of the stars of the new menu.

Now that I finally own this gorgeous Reina Floral Corsage Hairband* I wanted to style it with something equally as pretty, feminine and fun to wear. I immediately thought of this beautiful black and cream sheer dress, which is a…

There are some traditions that I hope last my lifetime. One of them is that Mr Ting and I always have one romantic getaway just the two of us every year around our wedding anniversary. This year our trip was to Vienna and we decided to head off a little earlier in August than planned to space out our trips this year. We booked to stay at Hotel Kugel right in the centre of Vienna, only a minute or two…
