Vietnam: a sleepy slice of heaven….

My first ever visit to Vietnam in March was to a small, quaint town called Hoi An. A lesser known travel option compared to the big cities of Ho Chi Minh and Hanoi, we chose it because we wanted somewhere child-friendly with 5 days of doing very little except eating, swimming and taking long walks….

Phuket Stragglers Weekend!

We spent last¬†weekend in Phuket and my body’s still ACHING! It was a real jolt to the system. I went with my husband, son, helper and a big group of friends. I think we were 13 adults and ¬†5 kids/babies all together! My husband’s part of a group called Stragglers and these guys don’t mess…

The Hair Lounge Review

As the end of my London trip is fast approaching, I decided to treat myself to a long overdue treatment, trim and blowdry. There are quite a few salons in the city specialising in Afro hair, but I’d read good reviews about The Hair Lounge, owned by Charlotte Mensah, 2014 Afro Hairdresser of the Year….

Tioman Islands – Malaysia

BGIS in Mumbai! Part Deux

So here are my Mumbai purchases (minus a blouse that’s always in the wash when I’m ready to take pics! Sorry!) First up clothes. Finally – linen! No more polyester! I got a really pretty tea strainer (cos I take my tea seriously) and some lavender satchets to keep clothes fresh from Good Earth. Now…

BGIS in Mumbai! Part 1

I got back last week from 4 brilliant, hectic days in Mumbai. I went with my new hubby (blush) for my best friend Divya’s wedding. It was a bittersweet time. I was really happy for her but its truly the end of an era that began in UCL 11 years ago and is now OVER….sad….
