The Big Apple

Standing on top of the Empire State, looking out over Manhattan through the haze of early morning fog; waking up in New York City is exactly as good as I'd...

Birthdays in Barcelona

Upon finding out that we could fly to Barcelona (and back) at the end of April for £47 each I justified the other costs (accommodation, spending money, all the boring...

Boa Vista Beaches (With Bumble And Bumble)

| Beauty, Travel | 2 Comments

Summer is so close I can almost smell it. But that could be because I’ve just fallen off a plane from the Cape Verde islands, all tanned, relaxed and only slightly burnt. You know how it is; you get invited to book some last minute flights…

Another Weekend In Dubai

| Travel | No Comments

Yes. Yes, this post is just a pile of pictures – also known as The Lazy Girl’s Guide To Blogging. But to be perfectly frank even thinking about writing about this trip gives me a hangover so I’m going to keep it brief. I could…

Lunch in London

Fighting my way through the sweaty masses on the underground of our capital city on a hot August day to meet my sister for a whirlwind of lunch, cocktails, coffee, cake, shopping and selfies all crammed into a few hours; Not everyone’s idea of a…

Paris: Part Deux

| Beauty, Lifestyle, Travel | No Comments

Bonjour mes petits amis avec les yeux. Welcome back to Part Deux of the Paris posts. This has been a bit delayed for various reasons but also because I wanted to have actually used some of the products before writing about them. After all a…

Paris: Part Un

| Featured, Food, Travel | 3 Comments

At the beginning of this week I spent a few days in Paris to escape my birthday. Not that leaving the country has ever stopped me aging a year but it’s become something of a tradition to never graduate to a new year in the UK. Going…

One Night In Edinburgh

| Featured, Food, Travel | No Comments

Not technically ‘Jetset’, I know, but it’s my website, that’s my name above the door, and so I reckon I can afford a little bit of artistic licence. So in this case Edinburgh is as exotic as Dubai, the Maldives and Thailand. I was going…

Finding Perfection In The Maldives

| Featured, Lifestyle, Travel | No Comments

Turns out that the Maldives are insanely beautiful. I’ve just got back from the most picturesque 10 days ever, spent on a proper tropical desert island, and I’m currently struggling to cope with real life again. After wandering barefoot on the beach for over a…

Bon matin mes amis. Comment vas-tu? I’m doing very well, thanks for asking. It’s been a little while. You might be pleased/uninterested to learn that I’ve been continent-hopping again. Here’s the photographical evidence, for your viewing pleasure. You may or may not know that Singapore…

Queenslander Magic

G’day mate! Sorry, couldn’t resist. This post is about a true-blue Aussie cult product, of which there are few, that I’ve been requesting off my mother by the bucket load. Well, not quite. One tiny tube lasts forever so actually I’ve just asked for a…

Small World

| Lifestyle, Travel | No Comments

I have itchy feet again. I have flights booked but, it seems, they just can’t come round quick enough. I start to feel quite stagnant if stuck in one small place for too long. As though I’m missing out. And, to be perfectly truthful, I…

Dubai: Desert, Diamonds and Decadence

| Featured, Lifestyle, Style, Travel | No Comments

I returned yesterday, to the dreary and rainy UK, from hot and heady Dubai; A land not for the faint of heart, or empty of pocket. I’d been to visit my little sister who works for Emirates and lives over there when she’s not flitting…

Edinburgh Etiquette

| Food, Lifestyle, Travel | No Comments

So we just got back from spending Easter weekend in Edinburgh with my (sort of) mother-in-law, who is, by the way, a lovely woman. She likes cats, mid-day gin and appreciates good grammar. She also bred my wonderful other half. It’s easy to see why…

25 Is A Magic Number?

| Lifestyle, Travel | No Comments

I don’t feel old until I realise I’m seriously taking beauty tips from someone who’s looking forward to celebrating their 21st birthday next month. Christ. And I ain’t getting any younger. Days and moments like these I find myself experiencing a sort of panicky ‘life’s…

Manchester: A trip of good service and bad.

| Featured, Lifestyle, Style, Travel | No Comments

So I’ve just come back from a night in Manchester. I had some errands to run while down there, but primarily it was a way to see my sister as she had a 24 hour layover in Manchester, the first time she’d been in the…

Taking Time Out In Thailand

Phuket & Bangkok, Thailand, in pictures. Because sometimes a picture really is worth a thousand words.
