World Cup BenePub!

Has the whole world gone World Cup Mad?  Yes, and if your not already immersed in Sweepstakes and themed Football parties then with only two weeks left, it’s time to get involved!  Me and my friend Sarah decided to do just that, but in our own pink fluffy world better know as the BenePub!

The Roof

So this weekend for date night me and Mr J decided to try out something a bit alternative to your typical show – The Roof (a recommendation from my best friend who when questioned on the show was giving nothing away!) Image taken from nationaltheatre.org.uk The Roof is Frauke Requardt and Davis Rosenberg’s third production, following the success of their other shows such as Electric Hotel and Motor Show.  Being

Mrs J’s Garden Bucket List!

With BBQ season fully in swing the Jonas’s focus has shifted to the garden (or the jungle as I like to refer to it). When we moved to our new home just over a year ago, our little garden was a mini jungle. With overgrown bamboo a pond in the form of a sunken bath and loads weeds, this was a zone that I was truly staying away from.  Mr

Duchamp Spring Summer 2015 Menswear Collection!

Fancy yourself as bit of a David Gandy? Then look no further Men as Duchamp needs to be the one and only place that you shop this year. With the wedding season fully in swing every man needs a new suit, and not just if you are the Groom in question. On the afternoon of Monday the 16th of June Duchamp previewed their Spring Summer 2015 Menwear Collection in conjunction

Steam and Rye

Got the Sunday blues? Dreading Monday morning? Then do what I did and make Monday’s the new Thursday and meet with an old friend for a long overdue catch up and a few cocktails or a glass of wine. When my friend Sophie suggested meeting on a Monday night I was picturing a cafe Nero in the city and a cup of green tea, not a bar on a Monday

Camping – Sorry Glamping!

 So this weekend see’s the start of the Jonas’s making the most of the beautiful English countryside and the weather. We are Camping, sorry Glamping underneath the stars.  Being a born and bred Londoner I do have the tendency to break out in a slight sweat/panic about the lack of hot water and electricity. How will I keep up with Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram? (much to Mr J’s amusement!)  Having

Liz Earle Cleanser and Birchbox

Last month I received my Harpers Bazaar Birchbox as pictured below. I have decided that I’m not going to talk about them all as lets face it I’m a bit late in the world of reviews to talk about the box that I received in May.  So I’m just going to focus on my favourite product from the May box the Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser. Liz Earle is a beauty

Lipsy London Loves Michelle Keegan

Last night I lucky enough to be invited to the press day for Lipsy’s collaboration with Michelle Keegan.  Lipsy have successfully had a few celebrity collaborations and this is another one that I’m sure will add to their success.  Being in my early 30’s I was curious what the collection would be like as Lipsy is known for its fun, glamorous designs for any size.  As no one wants to

It started with a bottle of White Musk

 I have been shopping at the body shop for over 20 years now and I am happy to know that the core values of their business has not changed.  The Body Shop reminds me of my childhood and weekend trips to the local town center with my friend Linzi.  Even though we couldn’t afford much we managed to leave with a few bath oil balls and a wish list for
