Harper's Bazaar beauty box

My favourite magazine turns 150 this year and to celebrate has launched a MEGA beauty box in association with Latest in Beauty featuring a selection of iconic, award-winning products, chosen by the Harper's Bazaar experts and never been seen before in a box.  You can pick up 17 cult favourites for a snip of the price - the Bazaar Award Winners box is worth £409 and costs only £100.  Payday treat?  I think so...  Click here to see what's inside.

RPR Haircare

I'm pretty low maintenance with my hair - it's long, thick, wavy and does not do as it's told.  I wash it twice a week, blowdry it and occasionally make the effort to curl it, but most of the time I'm sporting unruly waves because life gets in the way.  I'm long overdue a cut and finally getting a few inches chopped off this week so it looks and feels healthier.  And I want to keep it that way - step in RPR haircare...

The Luna Cinema

Last week my boyfriend and I spent a dreamy evening in the grounds of Westminster Abbey at an open air screening of the romantic black and white classic Casablanca under the stars.

We were guests of Not on the High Street, as they've partnered with The Luna Cinema to surprise people across the nation with thoughtful gifts and experiences, including surprises at the screenings.  We cosied up on their big blue sofa with a hamper of goodies and a glass of fizz as the sun set and the film started.  I saw Moulin Rouge at the Regent's Park Open Air Theatre (one of my favourite places in London) a few years ago, and this iconic venue was just as special.  There are pop-up screenings at unique locations up and down the country all summer long until October 2017 - check out if there's one near you!

Enoteca Pomaio

A couple of weeks ago I headed east to try Shoreditch's latest foodie addition, the casual Italian restaurant and organic wine bar Enoteca Pomaio on Brick Lane, run by two young brothers and winemakers from Tuscany.

Lima, Peru

Lima is full of contradictions: preserved colonial buildings sit next to glass skyscrapers and run-down high rises.  Busy roads, traffic jams and packed buses run alongside the wild Pacific coast, surfers, craggy cliffs, and joggers along the ocean promenade.  And, as it's the oft-cited gastronomic capital of the world, there are as many heavenly tasting menus at incredible restaurants (3 of the current World’s 50 Best Restaurants are in Lima) as there are cheap fast food joints and street food stalls.  We loved our time in the Peruvian capital with its buzzy, fast-paced vibe, rich South American culture mixing native Quechua, Hispanic and global influences, and inexpensive world-class cuisine - this is what we got up to in 36 hours...

Last month I headed to my favourite building in London, the 18th century, Grade I-listed Royal Opera House to see Puccini's final opera: the dark, lively Turandot.  Romanian director Andrei Serban made his Royal Opera debut in 1984 with this production, and this is the 16th time it's returned to the Covent Garden stage.
