Roux at the Landau
After closing its doors to make way for a lofty renovation, Roux at the Landau reopened in April 2018 under the guidance of Chef Nicolas Pasquier. It now boasts one of London’s most spectacular dining rooms, centred around a vast counter displaying the charcuterie and shellfish offerings of the day – perfect for impressing a foodie. You can expect simple, but exquisitely elegant modern European fare, with provenance of ingredients taking the forefront.

Chinese New Year, sometimes called Spring Festival, is steeped in over 4000 years of history. The event begins on the first day of the Lunar Calendar, lasting until the 15th day of the first month, meaning this year it will kick off on February 5th, with festivities continuing up until the 19th.
My dear friends, I have always shared with you my favourite ways to stay healthy and maintain that beautiful skin and body. Having set routines and the right diet is so important when it comes to wellness and preventing or even reversing that process of aging, therefore it is my great pleasure to invite the people that I admire, who are behind some of the brands and lifestyle concepts which I implement in my daily routine.
It is my pleasure to welcome you all to my event on the 11 Dec 2018 at 32 Beauchamp Place, Knightsbridge.
Did you know that from the age of 20 your skin begins the rather frightening process of I.L.W or ‘insensible loss in water’? No? Well neither did we! With every day older we get, we lose a little more hydration in our skin, leading to loss in firmness, facial contours and that dreaded sagging of the skin. Water is precisely what gives youthful skin its plump and velvety appearance, so if there’s a way to retain that oh-so-vital substance then you’re going to be sure we want to know how.

Who doesn’t like a good party? As an adult there’s nothing better than letting your hair down with friends – and for the little ones, it’s even more exciting! They get geared up up for all the activities, be it games, dress-up, birthday cake-eating and of course plenty of other treats and sweets. To see their faces light up with awe and excitement is an amazing feeling for us adults, but because we know the importance of each birthday party for each child, it can be one of the most stressful events to organise. Plus, we know our kids have no filter, so if they don’t like something we’ll be the first to know!
Our culture today is obsessed with these unrealistically positive expectations: be happier, get healthier, be the best, better than the rest. We’re constantly being told we should be smarter, faster, richer, sexier, more popular, more productive, more envied and more admired.

Emotional intelligence isn’t always something we are born with but instead something that we learn and develop within ourselves throughout our lifetimes. Reaching certain academic heights and having a high IQ are certainly ways to exercise your intellect, however, emotional intelligence is the ability to convey the knowledge you have and employ it in a meaningful way. I see it as the practice and management of one’s own personality as well as their ability to understand others.

If I were to ask, “do genes influence you and your children’s personalities?” you may be quick to think that’s a stupid question. How often do we say, “Oh, he is just like his daddy or mummy!” jokingly implying that genes are to blame. We all have our theories about why we are as we are, or why our kids act out in the way they do, however a lot of recent evidence seems to suggest that genes may not have such a pivotal role to play. And this conclusion doesn’t come from a lack of trying: the UK and US has spent billions of dollars on genetic research.
I’ve checked my latest Instagram statistics and it seems I have a very decent following of men.
I write a lot about female empowerment, fashion, travel, as well as my own experiences that have helped me overcome certain hurdles and become the person I am today. But I’m the first to admit that there are certain things I couldn’t have done without the presence of strong men in my life – starting with a very important man, my father. There is also my husband, and my boss of nearly eight years when I was working in banking (he knows who he is!) and all the other men who are my friends who I have encountered through work and my hobbies. So this is dedicated to men.
Somebody once told me that life isn’t all that complicated, and finding happiness can actually be achieved by simply asking oneself the right questions. Most of the time, we humans – myself included – worry about insignificant things, many of which we have no control over. If we really understand the source of these anxieties, they can almost become absurd.
