Perisecco

Hello everyone! Thanks so much for all your prayers and support. Reading your comments on my last post really cheered me up.  I am sorry for not being able to post this post. The Monday’s post is being published today. Today’s post is about a new sparkling drink brand called Perisecco. Recently I got the chance to try 2 varieties of Perisecco sparkling aperitivo. Perisecco which originates from the Northern Italian region of the Vento and comes in six flavours.

The flavours I tried are cucumber and iced melon. The cucumber aperitivo is a mixture of elderflower, cucumber and mint. The iced melon is a mixture of elderflower, mint and watermelon. My favourite  among the two is cucumber aperitivo. The combination of cucumber with elferflower and mint gives it a fresh and sweet flavour. This is an all year round drink in my opinion, whereas the iced melon aperitivo is a perfect drink for the summer with sweet fruity taste. This would be an ideal company for a summer picnic.

The alcohol content in both the drink is around 5.5%. Perisecco aperitvo can be bought in the U.K. from Tesco. I highly recommend checking their website out.

What is your favourite cocktail drink? I would love to know leave your comments in the comments section.

We have had some hot summer days this year while it’s been great I needed some place to cool down and what better than the Icebar in London. I was invited to Icebar London few weeks ago to experience the bar and enjoy some drinks. Icebar is located in Heddon Street Food Quarter just off Regent street, in addition to the extreme cold room experience there is a warm cocktail bar and restaurant.The inside of the Icebar is made of specially harvested crystal clear ice from the Torne River found in Northern Sweden.

We went on a Sunday afternoon and enjoyed a 40 minute session at the Icebar, we were given a cape and gloves to keep ourselves warm. It was an absolutely magical experience with beautiful ice sculptures. The bar truck, tables, chairs and even the glass in which drinks were served was made out of ice. We were given 2 cocktails each by the amazing staff at Icebar who really looked after us. I had the branch off which was made of Absolut Blue Vodka, Passoa, Passion Fruit Puree, Lychee Juice, Lemon Juice. My husband had the Mojito made of Havana Club Añejo 3 yo Rum, Soda Water, Lime Juice, Mint Infused Syrup, Sugar Syrup.

After the 40 minute session, we are enjoyed some nibbles and drinks at the warm bar outside. I would suggest all of you to check out Icebar it’s one of a kind experience I thoroughly enjoyed the experienced, it’s well worth the money. The standard ticket starts from £13.50 when booked in advance from Sunday to Thursday and also includes a spirit based drink with cape and gloves. Check out Icebar website more information.

They say Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, it’s so true. Even a small diamond can add sparkle and glitter to one’s life. I love diamonds and learnt so much about them at the Vashi Diamond Masterclass ( You can read my post about the masterclass here). I got the opportunity to style a Vashi Diamond jewellery,I selected the Channel Set Diamond Ring in 9k White Gold. I love elegant pieces and this piece is absolutely classy and elegant. I like to team up different  jewellery pieces together, so I teamed up the diamond ring with a sterling silver bead bracelet from Tiffany & Co.

The diamond ring features 15 round diamonds in a channel setting with a total carat weight of 0.15. The colour and clarity of  the diamonds are so nice and looks so pretty, perfect for my petite hands. Being short and having really small hands not all rings suit me well, but this one suit me quite well in my opinion.

My tip to all you ladies will be to select a ring according to your hand shape and if you are wearing a diamond ring in white gold, try to team it up with any other white gold or silver jewellery. I am wouldn’t suggest teaming up yellow and white metal together.So ladies, if you are looking for unique diamond jewellery at competitive price head over to Vashi website now.

Hope you enjoyed the post. Feel free to get in touch with me. I love hearing from you. Feel free to leave your comments.You can stay connected with me on BloglovinTwitter,Facebook and Instagram. Looking forward to connecting with you ladies.

Weekend in Pictures

Hello Everyone! How are you? Apologies for not being able to post yesterday, my website backend was experiencing some technical issues. Today’s blog post is about my weekend activity via pictures. Pictures say lot more than words in my opinion, in today’s world when we have so little time for everything I thought I will let the pictures do the talking instead of me today. Just to give you a brief gist I drove to the beautiful Cotswold (for my readers from other parts of the world, it’s in England ) on Saturday and I went to central London on Sunday. I would like to mention the last picture is of Ain’t Nothin But.. London’s Original Blues Bar. I am a huge blues music fan and absolutely recommend going there on a Saturday if you want to listen some great musicians playing. This bar is one of my favourite, I love to listen to live music more than recorded music at pubs or bars. Check out the blues bar website here.

Hope you enjoyed the post. Feel free to get in touch with me. I love hearing from you. Feel free to leave your comments.You can stay connected with me on BloglovinTwitter,Facebook and Instagram. Looking forward to connecting with you ladies.

Grabble Relaunch Party: Hoxton Hotel


Grabble Launch Party

Hello my beautiful readers. On May 29th, I was invited to Grabble Relaunch party at Hoxton Hotel in East London. For those of you who don’t what Grabble is, let me explain a bit about their company. Grabble is an online fashion platform which allows you to curate items from the web (in their words grab )and save it one centralised place. The unique thing about them that I love is, once you have saved any item from the web, the platform also notifies you when the price of the item has dropped. I love the platform and recommend you check them out.

Grabble Relaunch Party

I love their venue selection for the event. The Hoxton Hotel is quirky and cool yet stylish, I am going to definitely book their event space for any events I host in future. The event was fun with lots of nibbles and drinks flowing in and the DJ played good tunes to entertain the guest. There were guest singers and magician as well. I met two lovely bloggers at the event and got a chance to network with like-minded people. I also met the famous latex girl Pandemonia who is talk of the town at the moment in the fashion world.

We also received lovely goodies in our goody bags. I am going to try out these products and let you all know my review.  Out of these products I have already tried the dried mango from Urban Fruit which I have been eating since a year. I am currently trying the liquid skin drink from  Skinade this week, hopefully I will see some difference in my skin.

Tiffany & Co Bracelet: My Favourite Jewellery Item

 

Tiffany Bead Bracelet

 

Tiffany Bead Bracelet

 

Tiffany Bead Bracelet

 

Hello! Hope you are having a great day. Today’s blog post is about my favourite jewellery item, it’s my Tiffany & Co bracelet. I received this bracelet as a present on my hen party from my cousin. This is the best present I have received so far. I absolutely love the Tiffany & Co. bracelet and wear it most times with my chunky watch. I love delicate jewellery and no one can do it better than Tiffany & Co. This my first blue box although it’s not a diamond ring but may be one day. I am giving my Mr. a subtle hint 😛 that I would like to own more items like the Tiffany & Co bracelet.

This bracelet is part of the Return to Tiffany range and is inspired by a design which dates back to 1969. It’s a 7 inch long sterling silver bead bracelet with a mini heart tag. The beads are four millimetre long and are absolutely beautiful. When I think of Tiffany & Co. words like elegance, class and sophistication come to my mind and it reminds me of my role model Audrey Hepburn. I loved the movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s, it’s one my favourite movies. I am sure loads of you ladies love the movie, it’s such great mix of romance and elegance; loved the way Tiffany’s was shown who would respect every customer irrespective of their budget.

When I was in San Francisco, I went to their store in Union Square and the store was absolutely marvellous. I fell in love as soon as I entered and wanted to buy almost everything. Coming back to my bracelet you can wear this bracelet on it’s own or you could also pair it with a nice watch. When I am wearing a girly dress I often just wear the bracelet on it’ own however  when I am wearing a jeans and blazer, I pair it with my chunky watch.

For UK readers,the bracelet is priced at £130 and can be bought online from their website. For US readers, the bracelet is priced at $150 and can be also bought from their US website.

My Instagram Snapshot

My Instagram Snapshot

Hello everyone! Today’s post is a snapshot of my Instagram photos. I am quite new to Instagram and not yet addicted to it but I try to post photos I like when ever I can. Photos can speak more than words to me. Here is a quick snapshot of my Instagram timeline and the most liked photos.

The car in the snapshot was captured in Spitalfields market in East London. It’s a quite interesting way to showcase fashion. Also next it to it is a cute cupcake van. I loved the way the cupcake van has been created and decorated. I love bright colours and it instantly caught my attention. If you are visiting Spitalfields market the van is just next to the Benefit Store. If you love vintage stuff and like to check out new designers, I recommend visiting Spitalfields market on Saturday. The style market takes places on Saturdays showcasing new designers. I haven’t yet checked it out but will visit soon and update you all.

Another interesting photo on that I posted on Instagram was the Sweet Virtues Truffle. Sweet Virtues is a new upcoming food brand creating handmade super food truffles. The truffles are dairy free and absolutely delicious. They haven’t launched yet in full swing but I recommend trying them out when they launch. I came across Bobo’s Juicery at the Little Shop of Beauty event. They make cold pressed organic juices and smoothies. I was never fan of drinking vegetable smoothies even after knowing they are packed with nutrients but when I tried their A Bit of Ruff(age) juice a mix of fruit and vegetables I am now a convert. The juice is absolutely delicious and packed with nutrients and vitamins. They deliver to most post codes in London and you can order the juices online. Each juice is priced £5 which is a bit expensive but it is totally worth it.

I am trying to live a healthy life and have been looking for restaurants and cafe serving food sourced from organic ingredients. One of my favourite place for lunch time meal is Le Pain Quotidien. One of the pics in the Instagram snapshot is the Toasted Smoked Chicken & Mozzarella Tartine from Le Pain Quotidien, it’s delicious. Do check them out ladies if you haven’t yet.
