One Week to Go! (till Christmas/potential disaster day that is..) If the last for words just made you have a little heart-attack because you’re supposed to have bought gifts, then don’t fret! Just try this one sweet, festive area and you’ll be fine! Last week, I was invited to go down to St Martins Courtyard in Covent Garden, London to be shown exactly how wonderful the area is at Christmas – you really can get something for everyone! I know that phrase is an over used cliche, but if you only have a few minutes on the clock, plus need a good old lunch or dinner while you’re out there, then it’s perfect I think. What a wonderful opportunity it was too – sometimes you need showing around your own home city! There are still so many places I don’t know very well!


St Martin’s Courtyard is mainly tucked away behind Jamie’s Italian or down a cute alleyway next to Cos and holds a perfect handful of beauty, fashion and lifestyle shops. I would ever normally think of stopping in Melvita and having a quick, organic hand-exfoliating treatment, nor having a ten minute massage in Relax. But now I’ve given it a try, it sounds like a blooming brilliant idea for a refresh stop in between trotting about with bags like a headless.. turkey?! Talking of trying new things, it was my first time in the subtly Indian resturant Dishoom too and I didn’t realise it’s the only one inย existence! We had lots of little dishes of nibbles that turned my mouth into a cavern hot enough to toast a pizza in. But aside from that, it was divine! How’s you’re xmas shopping going?

    >Dishoom is my absolute favourite! My best friend and I go there almost every week to eat garlic naan, house black daal and lamb bohti kebab!

    St Martins Courtyard is such a lovely little area of London as well, I love browsing the shops round there!
