Two Things You Just Can’t Have Together

I'm not a gym snob but this is poor for a 5* resort!

Ryan is back again, with another blog all the way from the sunny Caribbean… There are certain things which go together perfectly; cheese and wine, fish and chips and Chas and Dave, for example. (Ask your parents if you’ve no idea on that last one!). Yet certain other things simply can’t co-exist. So upon learning […]

Why I’m The Weirdo In Waterstones

Yes, I admit it. I am the weirdo that lurks around Waterstones for hours. For me, shopping isn’t only about stroking the fabric of a dress, or trying on shoes (even though I am a Jimmy Choo addict) but actually about wandering round the packed shelves of my local Waterstones – and yes, I do […]
