Pay Day Treat, Glamour Beauty Edit.

So its Pay Day Finally!  Pay day is usually my official day of splurging online, but with the recent bathroom repairs at Jonas HQ I have been swapping buying body butter for buying bath tiles. Even with such unexpected home expenses a girl needs to treat herself and with the help of Latest in Beauty and Glamour below is a fantastic offer I thought I would share with you (that

French Connection Home – The wish List

They say home is where the heart is, and after just over a year in our new home the Jonas’s renovation project has finally begun.  While the budget is still up for review, the ‘wish lists’ are in full swing.  So for the first of my home posts I thought that I would share my favourite picks from the French Connection Home Collection: Velvet Tie Dye Cushion £45 Buy Here

Dine with Kyi, Burmese Street Kitchen

Looking for an authentic dining experience?  Why not try Dine with Kyi! A few weeks ago my friend Olivia invited me and Mr J to join her and a group of our friends to Dine with Kyi.  Whilst I have tried, tasted and made a few Street food items over the years Burmese Food was one I hadn’t discovered. Who is Kyi? Kyi or Thuzar kyi is a British Born

Bath Salts – a healthier and happier you?

 When you think of Salt, its usually the Salt and Pepper kind that gets sprinkled on your food. Have you thought about having Salt in the Bath?  I used to avoid baths as lets face it who has the time to soak in the bath for half an hour, only to come out like a shrivelled prune?  I certainly don’t!  But when my friend Nikki introduced me to the natural

Wedding Guest Outfit Dilemma

It’s that time of year folks! Where love is in the air and the wedding season is in full swing. If your near the same age as me then this is the time of year when all your friends are getting engaged or getting married.  Each of these occasions can be pretty stressful and pose many questions, to which I’m sure a lot of you can relate.  Am I over

Drawing Room

It’s that time of year where we all (yes Ladies and Gents) ask ourselves whether we should go for a big chop. For women its the short ‘boy cut’ dyed hair look, and men its the shaved look. For me the summer time is the only legitimate time that I can go really short and not have the fear of having a cold head or looking like a boy when

Happy 21st Birthday Oliver Bonas!

Oliver Bonas is by far one of my all time favourite stores, who knew that they have been around for 21 years! It’s quirky, fun, bright and individual. Their products don’t follow the typical high street trends, but ooze great style and design.  Whether its a birthday present, some luxurious (reasonably priced) hand wash or simply a treat for myself I always find the perfect gift.  So when I was

Sea of Sisters

The Sea Sisters by Lucy Clarke* It’s been a while since I read a really good book which I am quite ashamed to say.  Outside of a beach holiday there never seems to be enough Mrs J time as I have a tendency to never sit still! Different types of books serve different purposes and now I felt was the time for something more serious than some ‘chick lit’.  I

Herbal Tea Crazy!

So I’m a tea addict, but who isn’t really?  There is nothing like the taste of a good strong English tea, or a sweet milky Indian Chai tea to let the stress of the day ease away. My latest love for tea has been heightened by the mass variety of organic tea out there, all sourced from the highest quality organic ingredients.  Which for you tea lovers out there, that
