A gift guide for the traveller in your life

I don't know about you but I find it really difficult finding the perfect gift for my friends and family. I am not really fussy with what I receive myself but when I buy presents I want them to be thoughtful and suit the recipient (I mean there is only so many Lynx body spray … Continue reading A gift guide for the traveller in your life

Photography project – #vantagepoint

There is something quite magical about the fairground carousel, the old Victorian style gives them an eloquence that other rides just don't have. I wouldn't really associate Paris with the carousel but while I was there recently I saw loads of them and they are so pretty that you just cant help taking photos of … Continue reading Photography project – #vantagepoint

A very sweet gallery

A wise man (his name was Samual Johnson) once said 'A man that is tired of London is tired of life' and I wholeheartedly agree with him. For those that are constantly craving new adventures, seek to eat cutting edge cuisines or even want a quiet oasis surrounded by trees then London is the place for you! What I love about … Continue reading A very sweet gallery

She had already arranged to go out with her friends at the weekend and we were going to have a family meal or takeaway at home on the day. Birthdays have always been a … Continue reading Exhibit – Balham

It’s My Thing is a campaign that celebrates real kids doing what they’re passionate about and champions their self-expression and individuality. We are quite lucky that children are offered all sorts of activities through school and … Continue reading Castle climbing with fruit shoot hydro

Paris – exploring La Defense

I imagine Paris is a city similar to London in the sense that it has well known sights and attractions, particularly in the centre, but also has lesser known areas that are also filled with interesting things to see. As soon as we stepped off the metro at La Defense our first thought was that it must be the Canary … Continue reading Paris – exploring La Defense
