The Things You Do For Love – Part 1 – Camping

So here’s a funny story. Remember me saying I’d finished things with my man-friend a few weeks ago and how heartbroken I was? Yeah, we’re back together. I know, I know … they’re exes for a reason, but please don’t judge. Like with most things, it’s actually really...

How to Talk to Your Teen #ad

As I mentioned in yesterday’s blog post, Dexter has just turned 13. An official teenager. But I would say that it’s felt like he’s been a teenager for a lot longer. (A lot, LOT longer.) I think these days, children mature a lot quicker, and I suppose, as a lone...

Launch of Korean Chicken Restaurant – Wing Wing, London

It’s not every night you’re invited to eat as many Korean chicken wings as you can, but that’s exactly how I spent last night. Oh, and did I mention the bottomless beer too? Yeah, suffice to say it’s unlikely I’ll be weighing in this weekend.   Wing Wing is a...

Love Photography? Check Out Million Eyez

I’ve just got back from Croatia as you know and I took some time today to download all of the photos and videos I’ve taken. Wow. There are A LOT! And as I skimmed through them before I write a series of Croatia blog posts I realised that actually, the quality of my...
