100 Happy Days #73 – 80


Day 73

Got excited when this email came through to me from Rebel Kitchen to say ive won their twitter competition! As you know I only just meet up with these ladies at Selfridges to chat about their product a few days ago and I was surprised to say the least when they told me I had won their competition considering I never really win anything! On this occasion I think my selfish side may come out to play because I already know how delicious the chocolate flavour is and I just can’t bring myself to sharing any of them right now.  Sorry 🙂




Day 74

Stuck at home and feeling under the weather so the best way to cheer my sorry self up was to make one of my favourite smoothies.

Combining banana, raspberries, blueberries, a teaspoon of chia seed, honey and a dash of skim milk (or you can use yoghurt) and pop it all in the blender and Voila – you have yourself an amazingly tasty smoothie in a matter of minutes.  Now I wont go as far as saying that I was cured but it did take my mind off the nasty wee headache I had that just decided to not sod off and leave me in peace.

Day 75

Fabulous way to break up the week and spend some time at the spectacular Berkeley hotel. If you haven’t read my latest post on Koffman’s and you love a bit of traditional homely cooked French cuisine then this is a must to read! Thanks again to the wonderful ladies whose company and hospitality was first class as always.

Day 76

What a gorgeous day the weather put on show for us. Portman Square on Baker Street are currently running ‘Summer in the Square’ in July which is such a brilliant idea on these balmy hot sunny days in London. Even better was the huge screen they had for all to see the Wimbledon match over the four days. I was lucky enough to score a funky yellow deck chair to perch on while tucking into my usual salad. I do try as much as I can to take a lunch break and clear my mind for an hour by taking a walk around the nearby parks or spending money that I know I shouldn’t be spending on Oxford Street.

I did get very comfortable in those chairs and the thought of having to return to my desk again seemed like such a drag. I wonder what excuse I can come up with to say I wont be coming back in for the afternoon?


Nope, I have nothing

Day 77

Trialling out my hot ruby-red nail polish for Henley on Saturday with a bit of ring bling. I’ve stopped wearing a lot of nail varnish unless im spoiling myself with a gel set. I find they last up to 4 weeks and are far better than dealing with unattractive chips all over my nails.  In saying that if anyone can give me advise on brands that wont do this then I am open to trying them. I don’t tend to wear a lot of jewellery either; apart from my watch which I feel naked without. I have a tendency to fiddle with rings by taking them off and leaving in oddest places that I can’t remember for the life of me (a mistake that has happened far to many times!) I’m still trying to work out what im going to do if I ever get married. I don’t think superglueing the ring to my finger is such a great idea. 




Day 78

I just adore this photo taken of all the girls today at Henley Royal Regatta.  Everyone looking very classy and sophisticated (wouldn’t have it any other way) and each with their own individual style. If you haven’t probably noticed by now I just love getting dressed up for any occasion, fancy dress being at the top of the list. Don’t you just think there is nothing better than getting ready with your girlfriends before a night out, sipping on bubbles, make up and clothes sprawled out all over the room and always rushing to finish those last-minute touches before running out the door. 

If you want to read more on the girly day out check out my post and some fabulous photos to go with it. 



Day 79

An absolute classic quote from the late John Lennon. Made me smile so I had to share.  The guy is such a legend. So on that note I wont elaborate anymore, he has said it all quite perfectly. 



Day 80

Monday evening saw me visiting another lavish hotel around W1.  A prestigious boutique hotel by the Doyle group, the Marylebone lane hotel situated at 108 Marylebone consists of 230 rooms including impressive gym facilities, heated pool, conference rooms, The Pantry restaurant, The Juicery and the drawing-room which is what you see in the picture below with numerous bottles of sparkling wine.  The sales manager had kindly offered a tasting of some English sparkling wine called Nyetimber and mountains of food to go with it.  I was not expecting anything quite like this to start my week off but saying no because a pitiful excuse of a detox wasn’t quite going to quite cut it. 

The rose was undoubtably the best and the food..as always, never disappointing from this hotel. I will admit that I was a little piggy and had two servings of each of the cakes but im telling you they were that good and I wasn’t the only one following suit!
