Tandoor Chop House

Tucked down an unassuming street near Charing Cross station lies Tandoor Chop HouseDark, cosy and inviting, it’s a great place for an evening with the girls now that autumn’s drawing in and the nights of drinks on a terrace are coming to an end. Plus it’s Indian food, which is always a win in my […]

Savelletri

After a few days gallivanting around it was time for a slight change of pace. A little bit of time to lie around and do nothing other than waffle at each other and drink cocktails.  We checked into Masseria San Martino, where I promptly jumped into the pool whilst H busied himself sorting out our […]

La Peschiera

From the first second I stepped out of the car I fell in love with La Peschiera. Seriously though, when it looks like that, how could I not? A hotel and restaurant just outside of Monopoli, it’s truly breathtaking. The restaurant is built on a platform out over the water and is pretty much my […]

Grotto Palazzese and Alberobello

I almost didn’t include Grotto Palazzese as honestly, the food left a lot to be desired. The worst we had in Puglia and the most expensive by a country mile. There are few worst food crimes than taking great ingredients and over complicating them until you’re not quite sure what’s just happened on your plate. […]

Olive Oil Farm

Seeing as we were in Puglia, home to endless olive groves, we decided it was time to pay one a proper visit. We stopped in Masseria Brancati, just outside of Ostuni for a tour and a tasting and were lucky enough to have the place pretty much to ourselves.  When even the car park has stunners […]

Ostuni

We were starving when we arrived so stopped for a quick lunch, and a bottle of wine of course, we were on holiday after all.  Before darting off to explore the ancient city. It was my […]

Lecce

After a brief 2 year hiatus I thought it was about time I hopped back into this whole blogging malarkey. Partly because I missed it and partly because I think places like Puglia need to be shared. I say this now although I’m sure in a few years, when everyone has discovered the delights of […]

Lemon and Rosemary Sugar Scrub

When I told my best friend I’d just made this, her response (as I creepily knew it would be) was “aren’t you going to smell like a roast chicken?” Well, no, you’re not. Whilst they may be popular, and common, additions to a roasting tray, they also smell pretty darn good on you. I don’t […]

Le Chalet at Selfridges

Sometimes all you want is a little slice of the Alps in London, right? Or perhaps the idea has never crossed your mind. Either way, you should go have a little peek inside Le Chalet. Tucked away high up above the hustle and bustle of Oxford Street is a little oasis on the roof of […]

Purple Power Juice

I first started juicing last year after a very indulgent week when I felt like I needed a bit of a cleanse but then the unexpected happened, I got a bit hooked. I went for the highly recommended Jason Vale 3 Day Detox and its something I still do every now and again if I’m […]
