Eating: The Water House Project
Friends, relatives and my previous school dinner ladies can attest to one particular fact about me: I do not like fish. From cowering away from the prawn cocktails served at family meals to gagging while walking past a fish mongers, I thought my dreams to be a high-class fish-eater were dead and buried. That was until I went for a meal at the canal-side restaurant, The Water House Project. Filled with an addictive ambience and orchestra-style playlists, I felt instantly at ease within the high ceilings and full-length windows encompassing the restaurant. And while there were predominantly fish-only dishes on the menu — I found myself clearing every single course. Pairing carefully sautéed scallops and perfectly prepared tuna with a vast array of selected wines, the dining experience was like none I had ever had — and I can finally cross “make myself love fish” off my bucket list with ease.

Using: Nursem Caring Body Wash and Cream
For all my fellow eczema sufferers out there who have searched long and hard for the perfect scented creams that don’t cause a flare up: look no further. Having recently been introduced to Nursem’s new caring range, I have finally bid my lifeless Sanex bottles adieu — and haven’t looked back since. Incorporating sweet and tangy lime scents with musky cedar wood and sweet pomegranate, the body wash and cream have left my skin feeling cleaner, more moisturised and better protected — and yes, I’ve already got my entire family hooked too.

Going: Cazoo Derby Ladies Day
Okay, I’m technically breaking the rules on this one, as I am yet to actually attend it — but I cannot contain my excitement for this week’s Cazoo Derby Ladies Day. With my mum and my favourite pair of heels coming along with me, we will be enjoying a day of fashion, drinking, eating and, of course, racing right in the heart of Epsom. And, with this year’s event hosted by drag superstar Cherry Valentine, it feels all the more special. Catching up with Cherry, she explained, “I am so excited to be a judge at The Cazoo Derby Style Awards this year. The Derby is known for its fabulous fashion and, with drag being the ultimate form of self-expression, I want to encourage this year’s attendees to show up as their most fabulous selves. I can’t wait to see the outfits on the day.” And, if you cared to join me this Friday, tickets are still up for grabs here.

Eating: Atis
Atis opened a new salad bar in Notting Hill on Pembridge Road. Being so closed to our office and seeing the videos on Tiktok I thought I must go try it out, a nice change from my usual boring sandwich for lunch. With so many delicious looking options it was hard to choose. I ended up going for the Seiz’a Caesar, a great twist on the traditional recipe.

Buying: Artingstall’s x Gourmet Luxe Hamper
With Fathers Day round the corner I am always stuck on what to get my dad. What do you get for the man who has everything and is not into the stereotypical ‘dad gifts’? When I came across the Luxury fathers day gift hamper on Gourmet Luxe I thought it was perfect. The only thing better than getting my dad a gift he will enjoy is getting him one that he can enjoy with his favourite person – me!

Listening: Redhanded Podcast
Can I just say… I am obsessed with the Redhanded podcast. Since discovering the show recently I have been listening to it everyday since. I am a true crime lover, I love watching thrillers and documentaries that are based on real life and since I cannot watch these whilst I am at work it’s even better that I can listen to these ladies with there calming voices talking me through the ins and outs of some of the most horrific crime stories whilst I work away packing orders.
