A visit to see the Big Buddha on Lantau Island is an absolute must on every Hong Kong itinerary. Although I set off on a solo journey, I met a fellow a traveler along the way, who joined me on an excursion that involved three pints and three lanterns at the picturesque Tai O Fishing Village.
Malta is a place I knew almost nothing about before going. I had no idea about the big connection between Malta and Hollywood, or that the waters are among the bluest I’ll ever see. I visited for 3 perfect nights at the end of April but left wishing I had stayed for more!
As it’s nearly summer (finally!) I wanted to share some of the key pieces I’ve bought for the season. I’ve limited my summer haul to just a few essentials, in an effort to be a more conscious consumer, following the slow fashion and slow lifestyle ethos. Check it out!

For the average non-Japanese, ordering sake involves just one simple question: hot or cold? Sake is one of my favourite alcoholic drinks, and has been for several years now, so why do I know so little about it? After my recent visit to Yashin Ocean House to review their incredible new menu, I was invited to come and join their Sake Brewer’s Club to see if I could find some answers to my question.
This post is a follow-up to 30 Things to Do Before Turning 30, which looked back at the life goals and things I achieved before hitting the big 3-0. Now it’s time to look forward and consider the things I still haven’t done… While I ticked off a lot of things in my 20s, there is still so much I want to do. And that’s fantastic! How boring would it be to have done and seen it all before my first grey hair?
Last Friday I attended the UK Blog Awards 2018 at the Marriott Grosvenor Square as a Lifestyle Finalist. The event was an incredible opportunity to meet like-minded bloggers and industry peers, and celebrate our achievements with lots of prosecco! Wearing a stunning maxi dress by Forever New and hair by Blow Ltd, here are some photos of my red carpet look and thoughts on the event.
Opera houses are struggling to attract millennials through their doors. But why? Many millennials still believe three myths to be true about the opera: that it is boring, old-fashioned and expensive. While it’s true that some operas can be all of those things, it can also be thrilling, modern and cheap!
Yashin Ocean House – famous for their no soy concept – introduced a new menu at the start of 2018. Key changes include new meat dishes, the introduction of a California roll, and unusual flavour combinations, even by their standards. Despite the quirks and contradictions, combining traditional Japanese methods with more European ingredients, Yashin stand out as one of the best Japanese sushi restaurants in London.
