USA Road Trip | Palm Springs

A couple of hours drive from Los Angeles, and with the roads becoming (a little) smaller and the back drop changing from city to desert, the mercury slowly rising, the heat becoming drier and with mountains in view, we arrived in Palm Springs, the oasis in the desert!

A Secret Night at the Clarendon Cocktail Cellar, London.

Last Friday night we headed in to London to meet some friends for a surprise celebration  evening.  I always think it adds to the excitement to a night out when you are sending a million text messages in 1/2 hour….”Where are you guys?…  Train was delayed…  Can you stall them for a bit, Victoria tube […]
