Dominique Ansel Bakery, London
After much anticipation, the legendary cronut by Dominique Ansel Bakery has finally made it to London. So the queues started last Friday on Elizabeth Street in Belgravia. After being far too inpatient to queue in New York, and being second time lucky in Tokyo, with Dominique Ansel virtually on our doorstep we had to stop by. The cronut of the season is apparently Salted Butterscotch and Cocoa Nib. I say apparently, as it seems we were far too late in the day to taste them ourselves. Arriving in the afternoon in the first week of doors opening, there was really no chance we would get our hands on one. We really should have known better. We were just lucky to make it through the doors and see the sign that 350+ had sold out already. It still doesn’t make sense why they just can’t make a few more if they know how popular they are, but it was the perfect excuse to try some of the other things on the menu. The DKA is a caramelised layered croissant like muffin with a sweet crunch on the first bite. It would make a delicious breakfast pastry. Forget dipping cookies in milk, […]
Tree Tops Sky Dining & Bar, Anantara, Lawana, Koh Samui- Thailand
With great memories from our first visit, Tree Tops Sky Dining & Bar, Anantara has to be our favourite restaurant in the world.
A Night at the Opera at TWID
Constantly in search of the next novel experience in London, we just found the first of its kind at TWID, in Battersea.”That’s What I do,” is a fun, dining experience that sees you immersed in live opera. Behind the facade of a converted pub, a peek through the curtains, and you are transported into what appears to be an almost, traditional theatre. There’s something rather exciting about going up the small set of stairs to the private opera boxes. There are interesting stone statues scattered around the restaurant, and clearly a lot of thought has gone into the décor, at first glance. By light of day, the décor is a bit rough around the edges, but as night falls it’s easier to look past the chipboard ceiling and appreciate the romantic booths, and the atmosphere that’s been created. The menu has a nice selection of small plates to choose from, that are ideal to share. They are actually far from small, and rather substantial dishes, and probably no more than five would suffice for two. There’s a call bell on the table, which is genius- if only every restaurant had this. It allows the experience to be private and intimate whilst maintaining attentive service. Sipping on a mojito is always the best way to start the evening. Following the a […]
How to Pick a Wedding Band that Works with Your Engagement Ring
Choosing a wedding band, that embodies who you are as a person can be challenging. You want to ensure you have the perfect stone, shape and design that is truly unique to you, especially if you are going to pair your wedding band with your engagement ring. So how do you go about matching them, you ask? Well, here’s a couple of ideas to help you purchase that perfect ring. Decide What You Want There are so many different varieties of wedding bands. First, you want to decide on the metal; gold, silver, platinum? Once you’ve chosen, take into consideration your personal style. I know you want your wedding band to stand out, but you’ll want to keep it within the style of how you dress on a day to day basis. Think how you would describe your style; vintage, bohemian, chic or maybe classic. It’s good to keep these ideas in mind when shopping for your wedding band. Consider Buying Your Engagement Ring and Wedding Band Together This may not work if you’ve already got your engagement ring on your finger, or if you prefer to have a surprise proposal, but knowing which bands pair with which rings can […]

Sunday Midnight Brunch at Cavalli Club Dubai
The Cavalli Club has to be one of the trendiest places on the Dubai night life scene. Tucked away at the back of The Fairmont, it’s all glitz and glam, as one would expect. There’s a red carpet entrance and velvet walls. With large crystal chandeliers suspended and plush leopard print seating it’s all very hip. The dress code is cocktail dresses and high heels and smart evening wear for the gents. Dubai is renowned for Sunday Brunch however if you are a sun worshipper this can prove difficult. So when we heard that Cavalli Club do a Sunday Midnight Brunch with cabaret this sounded perfect as it wouldn’t interfere in our sun time. It starts at around 8:30 and finishes around midnight. Tables are set beautifully with rather funky goblets and plates. The Sunday Midnight Brunch sees great little performances interspersed between the three courses and bottomless drinks. The impressive pyramid sharing starter arrived with lots of small spoons with a great variety of small bites. The options seemed endless, with capreese salads, to sushi, nachos, and calamari. Each mouthful was delicious and packed full of flavour. There was a choice of main courses but they seemed to lack lustre after the phenomenal starters. The saffron risotto, beef and gnocci were […]
The Hairy Pig Deli, Stockholm
We stumbled across The Hairy Pig Deli, Stockholm in the rustic Old City Gamla stan. It was quirky with hog’s head and cured meats and dried spices hanging from the wooden beams. With just a handful of tables it’s rather quaint. The appetising menu of sausages and spectacular hearty, sharing boards of delicious tapas was a feast for the eyes. Salt and vinegar potatoes, garlic bread, olives, spicy chickpea and spinach, mushroom, and interestingly a moose lasagne. As a delicacy in Sweden, we took our chances with the Moose Lasagne. It tasted like a red meat and was actually quite pleasant. A Gamla Stan gem, a stone throw from the Royal Palace, that makes for a memorable feast.
Caesars Palace, Las Vegas
Vegas is not for the faint hearted and no doubt some people may prefer to play in an online casino from the comfort of their home, this alternative has especially grown quickly during the last years and more and more people are choosing to gamble online. But for those of us who wants to taste the real thing, Vegas is really fabulously fun, with something for everyone, and there’s always a reason to go back. No matter how many times we visit Las Vegas, we leave feeling slightly awestruck. There’s something about the bright lights and buzz of the Vegas strip that always makes it an unforgettable experience. Caesars Palace is a maze of colonnades, shops, restaurants and casino. With ceilings painted with beautiful, blue skies, you can find yourself sitting by Rome’s Trevi Fountain, and losing track of time. Vegas is truly the city that never sleeps and it’s the ambient temperatures, with a feeling of being outside, that seems to do it. There’s something rather infectious about the ringing of the slot machines. As small crowds gather around the Roulette tables splashing the cash, one can’t help being drawn in and getting caught up in the excitement. Doubling our money […]
