Friends, food and the great outdoors!


Hi there!

Hope you are well? Just a quick blog from me this week to say hello and hope you’ve had some sunshine wherever you are!

Asides from work my week has had a definite theme of food and friends.

On the weekend I went back to Maltby Street Food Market, and this time took my dear friends Maciej and Zuza. In the picture you can see us sipping coffee and nibbling on a south London speciality of St John’s doughnuts.


Talking of Maciej, he is also my personal trainer (yes, even trainers eat doughnuts!). You can also see us in this pic having a session in the outdoor gym near my flat.

My friend Emma prepared a lovely and healthy meal the other night. She has such a gift for presentation and makes the best wheat-free tuna pasta salad!


Another friend of mine and QVC colleague Justine Balmer, bought me tulips (my favourite flowers) as a housewarming pressie, and to round things off I had a non-surgical facelift from the healing hands of holistic therapist Joy Salem.

All in all a great week! How’s yours been? What’s been the highlight?

Still trialing my #Top3Beauty from last week, more next week!

Sending you big, big hugs,

    Hi craig! Sounds like you’ve had a lovely week. How cool to have one of those outside gyms near your flat! Nice to do a work out in the fresh air. I’ve had a busy week too. Lots of meals out with friends. Must try and visit that market next time I’m in London. Can’t wait for your next blog.
