Oakley Frogskins

The 90's are making a total comeback and so is the ultimate sunglass brand of that era. Ray ban and the Wayfarers did it a few years ago, now it is time for Oakley and their Frogskins. Whether you're skiing in the Alps or surfing the Pacific, it is the ultimate accessory! The A - List have already been spotted wearing them.  You can find Oakley at Shoreditch's brand new Boxpark at Unit 27.

Three Floor Fashion

Central Saint Martins graduate Han Chong and his label Three Floor is my latest fashion obsession. I first came across him a couple of months ago on a Vogue feature and completely fell in love with his collection. I got even more excited when I realised how reasonable his prices were. As cheeky as I am, I hate to share such great fashion finds with the rest of the world but this one I have to give it you ;). Make you sure you grab one of these frocks before he becomes really big and prices go sky rocket high from .

Somerset House Ice Rink

The most glamorous and picturesque ice rink in town where celebrities ice skate among children is back! With club nights featuring Joey Negro and The Ministry of Sound to ice dance lunch time workouts, a skate school for small and bigger kids and a Tiffany and Co "Tuck Shop" this is one festive activity not to be missed. After all, it's the most wonderful time of the year and we all need to embrace it!

Lily Vanilli

Having temporarily relocated to the hip East End, I decided that my mission should be to explore and discover as much as I could about this constantly evolving part of London. My latest obsession is Columbia Road on a Sunday! Especially during this festive season, when everything is so nicely decorated and the street smells of mulled wine and Christmas trees being sold at the flower market. Among the cutest little shops, I came across a courtyard with even more cute shops and an incredible bakery: Lily Vanilli. The place was packed with people enjoying hot drinks and marvellous cakes indoors as well as outdoors. Obviously I gave into the temptation and left with a selection of cupcakes, the most AMAZING triple choc brownie ever and a decadent chocolate and sour cherry cake. I also set my eyes on the fresh mince pies that had just come out of the oven but "luckily" enough I had no more cash on me. The only downside about this place is that it only opens on Sundays, as most of the shops on the street. However, you can pre order anything you want, customise your own cake and also have them cater your tea party.

Salt and Chocolate

Having an obsession with my nails, for many years I had been looking for a decent nail salon in London but, surprisingly enough, it was very hard to find. Then, right across my restaurant on Walton Street, Salt and Chocolate finally opened. Not only this is "decent", it is nail treatment in heaven. The girls are so friendly and kind and their skills and professionalism spot on. Moreover, Salt and Chocolate always hosts photography exhibitions on its walls including the works of Terry O'neill, Bob Carlos Clarke, Joseph Ford, Shlomi Nissim and Quin Murray. Also, Salt and Chocolate now stocks a fine selection of jewellery including Felder&Felder, Belle Sauvage, Jayce Wong, Susan Shi and Yuki Mitsuyasu. So chose one of the hottest new season OPI colours, seat back on the massaging armchair, one sip of champagne and enjoy that pedicure. That's what I call a treat! Art, jewellery, nail treatments-Love Salt and Chocolate!

Baity Kitchen

I know I haven't updated my blog for a while but I had a very good reason..The opening of my first eatery, along business partner and friend, chef Joudie Kalla. Baity Kitchen is our cosy deli restaurant situated on Walton Street, Chelsea. The concept behind it  was to serve high quality food inspired by our Greek and Palestinian backgrounds without any of your typical Chelsea frills. The atmosphere is always relaxed, our staff extra friendly and the food reminds you of mum's kitchen (Baity also means "home" in Arabic).Open seven days a week, our menu changes on a daily basis according to seasonal ingredients and the chefs' inspiration. Among favourites, you will find Sayadieh (yummy marinated cod with cumin rice and a yogurt-tahini dressing), Pastitsio (Greeks' answer to Lasagna), White truffle macaroni and cheese, Gemista (peppers, tomatoes and aubergines stuffed with rice in a rich tomato sauce), Mjadarra (puy lentil with basmati rice, caramelised onions, pomegranate and rocket) and the list goes on...Not to mention the signature choc chip scones, the brownies, the choc cookies and the lemon meringue tarts. I look forward to seeing you all there!

Mandarin Kitchen

The reason that God created non other than Mandarin Kitchen's lobster noodle. An all time classic, this place never disappoints me. Specialising in seafood, there is a great range of spectacular dishes to chose from, but obviously the lobster noodle is the jewel of the crown. Whether you go for garlic and spring onion, ginger and spring onion (highly recommend it), or black bean sauce and chillies...You are going to leave the restaurant craving for some more. Don't expect too much from the decor and be put off by the Queensway location. Mandarin Kitchen is every hip Londoner's seafood destination and with Tatler, Zagat and Taschen on their guards, who can deny it? Once you are done with your lobster, no matter how full you are, you also have to try the toffee bananas. Enjoy!
