Hotel Review: The Langham, Sydney.

If you've been reading here for a while you'll know I'm a huge fan of the Langham Hotel group. I've previously stayed at The Langham in London, and The Langham in NYC, and now the Langham in Sydney! Just like the other two hotels the Langham in Sydney is classy, elegant, and sophisticated, with bags of beautiful classic style and soft pink and cream furnishings and details everywhere you look.

Yauatcha City's Summer Tanqueray Tea Garden.

Being back in London means I get to spend my evenings wining and dining at my favourite restaurants and bars again. The restaurants within the Hakkasan group have long been favourites of mine, and so a couple of weeks ago I spent a wonderful evening testing out Yauatcha City's beautiful new Tanqueray Tea Garden and their Signature set menu!

My Secret Baby Loss Heartache + Life Lately.

For eight years I have kept this deep dark secret. Until recently only my close friends and family knew about what I'd been through, and there are a number of reasons why it has taken me so long to share my story. The main reason is that, until recently, I was ashamed. The other reason, is I was worried people would think I was oversharing and should be dealing with all this in private.

The problem is that taboo's will always stay taboo unless we talk about them openly and honestly. To break and end a taboo we need to share our experiences, and over the past few months I've realised that by not talking openly about my experience, I was part of the problem.

An Aussie Reunion at Scarlett Green, Soho.

Well well well. My first blog post since being back in London, that is actually about somewhere IN London. I've been back in the country since the end of May but have had a lot of family stuff going on (I'll explain in a post soon) so blogging has been quite sporadic and I've been trying to get my South Pacific posts written up. But alas, here we go! I'm home, and I am SO ready to throw myself back into London life and London blogging. And what better way to start than with a restaurant review of an Australian restaurant? Scarlett Green in Soho is the new venture of the people behind Daisy Green Collective; a collection of Australian restaurants dotted around the city, and it is fabulously Australian!

Exploring Samoa - The South Pacific's Best Kept Secret.

Despite just two days to see this beautiful South Pacific island, Samoa quickly became one of my favourite countries that I have ever been to. The scenery on the island was lush and tropical, and although we got lost multiple times, the locals were always willing to help direct us the right way. We set off in the morning from our hotel, the Sheraton Beach Resort, on the west side of Upolu island, and very quickly became infatuated with Samoa.

The Tropical Paradise of Sheraton Samoa Beach Resort.

When researching Samoa I found it a tricky place to find a decent hotel with all the mod-cons. It's still a relatively unheard of place to holiday, and aside from the many Australians and New Zealanders we bumped into around the island, we didn't really see too many other tourists from Europe - if any at all. After having such a great experience at the Sheraton Melbourne Hotel last year, I decided to give another Sheraton a try, and I am so glad I did! The Samoan resort is a tropical paradise, with a private lagoon beach, peaceful swimming pool, and the most incredible Samoan Oka! And, fire dancers.
