However hard you work or whatever problems you are facing in your life
Its important to take time for yourself.
Even if its only for 10 mins.
Time to stop, be thankful, positive and remove any negative thoughts.

In York city staying at #hotelduvin @Hdv_York

In York for a flying visit.

I was there for my lifestyle, style, image, self-confidence, best first impressions ‘Style your life’ consulting business.

I stayed at the Hotel du Vin which was perfectly situated close the York city wall, making it very easy to explore the beautiful city.

Here below are some of my favourite views of the City and of the stylish and comfy Hotel.

Fulham & Chelsea Lifestyle & #property #styling expert @ jewellery & champagne launch

As a lifestyle and property styling expert working around Chelsea and Fulham, I love going to see new properties around central London. Last night I was invited to the amazing headquarters in West Eaton Place of the Royal Demeure Hotel group was the venue for the launch of Niquesa jewellery with the added bonus of delicious Virginie Taittinger champagne. Amongst the celebrity guests I chatted to were Santa Sebag-Montefiore and the actor Patrick Ryecart who was one of the most amusing men I have met for a long time. A great evening!

#DavidBowie and #TheBookofMormon what a fantastic day today!

Couldn’t miss the press preview of the David Bowie retrospective at the V&A or the last minute matinee tickets we had obtained for the Book of Mormon today- even though I had been in bed with flu for last 3 days. So I emerged from the sick-bed leaving germs behind and excitement overtaking the flu-exhaustion.

The Bowie exhibition was just amazing- it assailed all senses. Reactive headphones to each exhibit allowed you to hear, see and completely experience Bowie from teenage career beginning to his tours, films, art and all aspects of his life. Bowie was my complete pin-up idol and I saw all his live concerts when I was in my 20’s so this was like living my past life for 2 hours again. I could have spent half a day there as there was so much to see, finishing with a room of giant video screens playing his last concert- it was nearly the same experience as being at the actual concert.
Just an amazing visual and all consuming sensory experience.

and then when I thought the day couldn’t get any better we laughed our way through the Book of Mormon.
It was sooooo camp and so funny that there was no mascara left on my lashes by the time it had ended-all cried off from laughing so much. Words cannot describe it except for camp, irreverent and brilliant…

I cannot recommend both experiences enough!. Rush to buy your tickets. You won’t be sorry.
I could go all over again. The best-est day !

At the PREMORIA Italian furniture design co, Pimlico Road

Promemoria is a luxury Italian furniture design company who creates bespoke designs-individual pieces or even whole house interiors.

The evening launched Promemoria's super-luxe bespoke kitchen cabinetry collection Angelina in the newly expanded showroom on Pimlico Road. Designed by founder, Romeo Sozzi, Angelina is named after his mother and is inspired by her passion for cooking and entertaining.

This is not the kitchen for those who want to simply “shoosh up” /transform inexpensive kitchens with an expensive worktop and new handles- but a kitchen for those who want to make sure they have the best of the best!. Lined leather drawers, beautiful dark wood, attention to detail. This is the kitchen for the client with a house full of staff and probably a few other homes around the world. We are talking seriously high end here.

During the evening, there were delicious canapes and an auction raising money for KIDs, the disabled childrens charity, whose president is The Hon. Rosa Monckton. There were lots of fantastic auction prizes including one from Ed Baines, the celebrity chef, a seafood platter dinner for 12, served in your home, which was bought by the MP David Mellor.
