Sister restaurant to the popular New York outpost, Bar Boulud London at Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park is the heart of Knightsbridge. The seasonal bistro menu includes an impressive selection of house-made terrines and pâtés, as well as a handful of signature sausages and burgers, adding an American touch to this French inflected bistro and wine bar. The interiors are inspired by a contemporary take on the craft of winemaking with a sleek open kitchen and vaulted ceilings, while the deep, red-leather banquettes and zinc-topped bar create a comfortable and welcoming surrounding for a truly unique London experience. The wine list focuses on Burgundy and the Rhône Valley, including many fine selections by the glass, as well as a wide array of draught and bottled beers. Two private dining rooms await those seeking a more intimate gathering. Having heard so much about this restaurant, I was very excited to give it…

The five-star InterContinental London Park Lane is situated between Mayfair and Knightsbridge overlooking the Royal Parks and iconic London landmarks. Set on the ground floor is the visually stunning Wellington Lounge, with a view of London’s Wellington Arch promised from every seat. As soon as you enter the hotel, you are welcomed with fresh flowers. Wellington Lounge is also the place to indulge in a new Afternoon Tea menu that cleverly evolves with the seasons and always brings to Park Lane the best products within the British Isles. Having heard their famous afternoon tea, I decided to give it a go <3. Below is the menu I tried and loved. Even though it was difficult to choose my favourite ones were “The Queen’s Hat” and “Hen egg and cress, carrot bread”. Can’t wait to go back! ROYAL TEA Pretty English Classics Speyside smoked salmon, cream cheese Scottish lobster and shrimp, Marie Rose…

Brunch is my favourite meal of the day, and no breakfast, lunch or dinner can dare to replace that. Give me some eggs, avocado, soya latte and an enjoyable company I am good for the next couple of hours. There’s plenty of places in london when it comes to avocado and eggs, however it is almost impossible to find a place with a nice relaxing interior and good quality service. Located in the heart of London’s West End, Sanderson, is a gem in London. The stunning hotel offers a retreat from the bustle of the city into a world of fantasy and well-being. The landmarked 1950s building has been transformed by Philippe Starck into a surreal Cocteau-like dream world, epitomising a new luxury that is smart, pared-down and tempered with a healthy dose of wit and irony. In addition to that, they have the prettiest inside garden, where I was lucky…

Located next to the famous Champs Elysees, Renaissance Paris Arc De Triomphe welcomes you. This stunning hotel is not only a place to rest and enjoy the spectacular view, but also a place to party the night away. As soon as you enter the hotel, you see the colourful bar, which tempts you to have a cocktail even before you check in. Once you enter the room, the beautiful, black modern decor takes your breath away, and you almost don’t want to leave. The luxurious, soft and silky linen sucks you in, and even working becomes fun. I was lucky enough to experience the view of Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomphe, while trying their tasty breakfast. Even though walking around city of lights, doing some shopping seemed tempting, I actually ended up not leaving my room and this view. Eating pain au chocolat, how more French can I get?

Located in the famous street Avenue Kleber, inside The Peninsula Hotel,  Le Lobby is the ultimate fine dining spot. Having heard some incredible reviews about this place, I went there to try their famous menu “Menu Du Marché”. The lobby looks like it’s jumped straight form the “Belle Epoque” era. Menu du Marché, literally meaning “Menu of the market” which offers an exciting array of fresh and local cuisine created by Head Chef Laurent Poitevin and his team using only the best ingredients. With salmon and hake being a personal favourite on mine I just had to try Le Lobby’s take on these two classics. Take at the photos below: Salmon with yogurt and chives, accompanied champagne, Bollinger Rosé Baked Hake, with beef ravioli base, accompanied white wine, Sancerre, Florés, Vincent Pinard Creme Brulé, accompanied desert wine, Ruster Auslese, 2009 Along with the soothing notes of this jazz trio, which was another reason why I…

A post for upcoming UK fashion/ lifestyle bloggers Hi guys, in this post I want to talk about how to become an influencer. When I first started I had no idea what to do or who to go, and google search didn’t seem to help either. I literally had to try every channel and every site, and go from there. I really wish there was a blog article or a YouTube video to show me the best way. After doing some research and my trial and error ways I have figured out some companies that are actually quite amazing for helping out fashion and lifestyle bloggers like myself. As I am based in the UK, this article will be relevant to UK bloggers most probably. The Blogger Programme This is a great website and definitely my favourite. Make sure you have signed up to it and check regularly. They upload…
