Living the Blondelife Dream

It’s going to be one of those posts again, a post full of pretty much everything I love to blog about. Like any good movie, it’s got a bit of everything you could want, except this being a lifestyle post. I certainly had a lot of fun on my latest excursion out in London where I ended up in the prestigious Savoy Hotel for afternoon tea with the best company I could ask for. This is how I was living the blondelife dream…

Being blonde certainly has its perks, and this is why I was invited to an exclusive afternoon tea and meeting with Joico, AJC PR and the one and only Denis De Souza. Myself and four other influencers were greeted by the teams and were there to hear all about Joico’s new Blonde Life collection. I had never been to The Savoy Hotel before, so I was blown away by the stunning salon de thé.

We each had the most exquisite table place set for us as well as a goodie bag filled with exciting treats, including some of the new Blonde Life range.

The best was yet to come, as soon the food arrived. You can guess what happened next…

Ten sandwiches, two scones and four desserts later, I was in a very happy place. All gluten free too, this was some of the best I’ve had. We then had the opportunity to chat with Denis himself about his LA salon ‘Mare’ and his Hollywood clientele. We talked about all different types of blonde hair, and how the new Blonde Life range expertly lifts and brightens for illuminating results.

Since the event, I have tried and tested the Blonde Life hair selection, and my sister even stole it to try out for herself! We are both blondes and couldn’t be happier with the products. It really does make a hell of a difference even though we are completely different shades of blonde.

Give Joico a follow and try out the products for yourself- they certainly have something for every shade- whether you’re living the blondelife dream or not!

SpaSeekers outing to K West Hotel and Spa

It’s been a very fun filled first couple of months in 2017. If you have been following my social media you have seen me out and about in London pretty much 3-4 days a week, which is a lot seeing as I’m now living elsewhere. Not going to lie it has been tough getting up at the same time as my husband (5.30am) to get into London and beat the morning traffic. But it isn’t without its rewards. So with that being said, I want to delve right into a fantastic adventure I had a few weeks back involving a SpaSeekers outing to K West Hotel and Spa.

A bit about the K West Hotel and Spa

The K West Hotel and Spa (nothing to do with Yeezy), located just five minutes from Sherpherds Bush station, has a very cool history. Before it was turned into a Hotel and Spa, it actually used to be the old BBC recording studio. The likes of David Bowie and Bob Marley have recorded there in the past and they have done such a fabulous job in refurbing the place into a modern yet edgy hotel which The A listers love.

Munchies at The Maynard Arms

This January has come and gone so fast don’t you think? We are already into month two of the year, and although there is a heavy load of stuff going on in the world (and social media) right now, it doesn’t mean we can’t have a little joy in the form of several courses of great food. The Maynard Arms has recently reopened its doors and I was invited along with a number of bloggers to see what they had to offer. So here is a little bit about my munchies at The Maynard Arms.

I went along with my good friend from Trousseau Diaries on a very cold evening, and due to strike action on this particular day we ended up being a little late. Nevertheless, the journey from Oxford Circus to Crouch End was relatively simple. We hopped on a bus at Finsbury Park and were dropped off outside the Maynard Arms Pub.

We met up with our host and other guests sat along a large wooden table and I quickly got my very own personal menu marking all the gluten free dishes – a very good selection!

Roast rainbow vegetable salad, lentils, goat’s cheese curd, tahini dressing

Ribeye steak, herb crusted bone marrow, mushroom tarragon duxelle, crispy potato cake

Flat iron chicken, broccoli spinach slaw, fries

These three dishes were so yummy. Goat’s cheese and spinach salad is one of my favourite combos out there and it led wonderfully into the juicy lemon chicken and perfectly cooked steak. Each dish had something very original about it, very ‘not your average’ pub dinner by any standard.

Lemon curd eton mess, roasted pistachio nuts

Oh my this dessert had all the spoons going in for the kill. Again, something you do not see as the usual eton mess is normally a mixture of red fruit, but it was amazing.

If you are looking for a truly sophisticated dining experience with a traditional, rustic space then munchies at The Maynard Arms is definitely in your future!
