I absolutely love how my bedroom has turned out! Everything about it is perfect and so much better than I was expecting. The room was completely renovated; walls re-plastered, window frame painted and the floorboards underneath were white-washed. All of which is a far cry from the navy carpet and dark green walls before.

In decorating my room, I wanted to create a light and open space. Something feminine and chic. I love that typical Parisian style and the soft palette of neutral colours and textures. I wanted to include elements of this in my room so I added a couple of black accents (curtain rail, bedside table, photo frames) to contrast the light grey and to add chic feel. To magnify the light and airy feel, I opted for linen curtains. They don’t block out any light and are more of a design feature than anything practical. I love how they let the light shine through and create a glow in the room in the morning.

My favourite part is the area around my bed. It’s the perfect place to snuggle up in the evenings especially with the Christmas tree lights wrapped around the headboard. Above the headboard are a couple of Desenio prints. I am completely in love with them! The ones I have chosen are bold, elegant and feminine. All of which complement the ambience of the room.

There is something magical about the French Riviera. From the blueness of the sea, the natural beauty of the coastline and the atmosphere; it can't be experienced anywhere else. Nice is a gorgeous city and my holiday there was a dream. My bestie and I had so much fun travelling around.


The best way to explore a city is on foot. One the first day, we found ourselves doing exactly that; exploring the local area and scoping out a couple of bakeries for us to grab a cheeky pastry or two. With the sea covering one side of the city, it's hard to get lost and we left our map in our bags most of the time.  Check out the Russian Orthodox Church, Villa Masséna Musée and Place Masséna to make the most out of your visit.

Travel tip- Did you know you can download an offline version of Google Maps? It was life savour on our holiday especially as I struggled to get an internet connection.


One of my favourite activities from the holiday was renting a Velo Bleu (city bikes). It was cheaper than we thought and a really fun way to explore the coastline and city. We cycled along the Promenade des Anglais, which wraps around the whole coast of Nice, up around this hill and around the harbour on the other side. On top of the hill are some amazing views of the city below. We also spotted the #ILoveNice sign where, of course, we had to take a few pictures.


No holiday is a holiday without a trip to the beach. Throughout the day, we kept finding ourselves wandering down to the beach to listen to the waves. The beaches are pebbly but it's comfier than you'd think. There are a few private beaches along the coastline which are ideal if you're looking to completely unwind for the day. Or for a more casual affair, you can sit on the pebbles, sunbathe and soak up the sun. There are a couple of sandy beaches only a short train away in Cannes or Antibes.


On one of the days, we visited Cannes. It was about €10 each for a return. It was a pretty chill day as we walked around the harbour, Le Vieux Port, picking out which yachts we wanted to own and discussing our yacht lifestyle. 

We wandered over to the Palais des Festivals, famously known for the location of the Cannes Film festival. Next to the Palais is a little park which is a gorgeous oasis of tall palm trees and vibrant green grass. Along the pathway, you can find paving stones with celebrity handprints and signatures, sort of like Cannes’ own walk of fame. On the other side of the road is where you can find all the designer stores: Chanel, Gucci, Dior and Fendi etc. 

For the rest of the day, we chilled on the beach soaking up the relaxed atmosphere until it was time to go back.


On our last day, we sat on the beach to listen and watch the waves. We managed to catch a glimpse of the beautiful sun as it set over the horizon. It was a magical end to our wonderful trip. Nice is one of the most relaxing places I’ve been too and I can't wait to go back again.

One of my favourite things about London is that it is constantly changing. You can spend a whole lifetime discovering the city and you’ll still have never discovered it all. I’ve grown up in East London and I never really saw the best parts of it or at least I didn’t know about them.

A few years ago, I set out on this adventure that I would explore what London has to offer and that always took me to either central London or over west to my favourite borough of Kensington and Chelsea. But the way I see London now has changed.

I am lucky enough to write the blog for a luxury fashion brand based in East London -they're quite a big deal. The content I am writing is about places and people in East London, the very best of, uncovering secrets, kind of like a guide to the East End. And it’s made me fall back in love with the Eastside.



I’ve always known the East end is special. There’s a sense of community when you walk through each borough and that’s one of the things I love. 

The other day, I went down to Columbia Road Flower Market (for their next post) and I loved it. I had to wake up early on Sunday, around 7ish, absolute torture but I loved the already buzzing atmosphere that was there when I arrived. There was something special and unique about it. The sky was gently warming up and everyone was already wide awake. Not to mention that the market was lined with beautiful vibrant flowers.

The work I’m doing has led me to look at my hometown with new eyes. For some reason, I had it in my head that I was trying to escape east London. You never really heard much about what was going on and all the exciting things seemed to happen over West. And I suppose, my new work has led me to uncover everything that’s going on in the East. I do research, I stay up-to-date and it’s a pretty amazing place with lots of hidden secrets.

It’s definitely changed a lot from when I was younger, the hipster culture is growing and a lot of places have been gentrified but it’s definitely the place to be. After all, your night out is most likely to lead you into East London.

Check out what I've been working on over at Paradise Row Curates.

If you’ve kept up with the latest beauty news then you know that Korean beauty a.k.a K-Beauty has become a new market favourite. Their quirky but phenomenal products are revolutionising the market and I am in full support of it.

One of my favourite Korean beauty products is the Faith in Face, I Need Relaxing Care pearl cellulose sheet mask. As far as sheet masks go, this is the most hydrating mask I have ever tried. When you take the folded sheet out of the packet, it is dripping in serum. It took me by surprise the first time I used it as I juggled with it my hands. The serum was easily and quickly absorbed by my skin, leaving it with a much-needed burst of hydration. The pack recommends that you leave it one for 15-20 minutes. It's longer than most masks but sitting down and not doing much for that time with a cooling mask on your face is seriously one of the most relaxing activities.

K-beauty is impressing everyone and it's obvious as to why. Not only do they have quirky packaging but they're selling quality products and adding fun back into beauty. I've only had a snippet of k-beauty and I'm excited to try what's next.

I've only been able to find these masks in person in TK Maxx but I have found them available on Amazon. So if you want to check them out, click here.
