A WINNING SMILE AT SMILEPOD

I have been known to possess a bit of a cheesy grin. I can’t help it. I love smiling! (Hence my pesky laughter lines, but those will have to be addressed at a later date)… 

So this thirty minute session in Soho was right up my street. I popped in to Poland Street with coffee stains, and came out a new woman. Almost! Read all about it for Flush magazine here:

Or is it that January is going on forever….? Either way, I am delighted to be able to share my adventures in Thailand with you. Read my review on Bangkok and the dream hotel that is Renaissance Pattaya, which I wrote for Slink magazine, January 2018.

BACK TO WORK AT LFWM 

Christmas seems so long ago, and the year seems fresh and exciting- and that is one of the reasons I love LFWM in January.

A clean slate, and new inspiration for the coming year. Even if we can’t get hold of the fashion for at least six months. Oh and did I mention David Gandy? It’s one of the two times a year, you get to hang out!!!

RENAISSANCE DOWNTOWN HOTEL DUBAI. WHAT A LAUNCH PARTY!

After a loooooong over night stopover flight and a suitcase change, I transformed myself from a Canadian snow baby into a rock chick (albeit a very tired one) to hit the all singing, all dancing launch- with Gwen Stefani, of the stunning five star, Renaissance Downtown Hotel in Dubai. 

Thankfully day one involved nothing more than relaxing by the rooftop pool, and then I embraced the culture!

LOVE INTERNATIONAL IS RIGHT ON MY RADAR!

The summer is actually only six months away, and it’s time to start daydreaming of where you want to be. I’m a big fan of the overseas festival, and was a Garden Party lover (RIP). Read all about it’s replacement in the tiny and delightful town of Tisno, Croatia which I did for 55Factory here:

HAPPPPPPPY NEW YEAR!

Comments Off on HAPPPPPPPY NEW YEAR! 55Factory, health & beauty, my words, review, sara darling, spa

New year, new you right? 

That’s probably the thought in many a mind this morning, and what better way to start a shiny new year with getting rid of all your old baggage?? Well, you can start with the skin variety. I fell in love with the Custom Rituals at the Beauty and Melody Spa at the M by Montcalm in Shoreditch, and I am sure you will too. I definitely have Polynesia on my hit list this year, so I can try it in person!
