New Year’s Eve 2017

It was already decided that for New Year’s Eve, I wanted to do something special. I wasn’t really interested in going to a club, or a party. I wanted to do something exclusive and a bit more on the ‘grown up side’. Why? Simply because, I didn’t feel the need to be surrounded by drunken people who didn’t even realise the 10 second count down to midnight. Seriously though, how are you even out for New Years Eve and not even realising it is passed midnight?! After a few Google searches on the best things to do in London for New… View Post


For the first time in maybe, two years – I am writing a blog post, with no idea what the subject is, or quite frankly – where this blog post will go. I’ve lost my mojo for writing, and for some  reason, I can’t seem to get it back. The amount of posts that were in my drafts folder from restaurant reviews, to holidays to experiences – yet I discard them and they end up in my deleted folder. I find that since working in PR, I have become so obsessed with being a ‘top blogger’ and figuring out a… View Post

My First 3 Months

It is inevitable that I’ll be my own worst critic. Sorry, but I am rather disappointed at my pathetic lack of posts since working full time. Every week, I would tell myself “Norresa this week is the week! You are going to blog!” Then eventually life.. (Eastenders, and sleep) get in the way. So I’m left in this endless cycle of convincing myself to write a post, and then – not doing it. You know it was pretty bad if I had fellow bloggers Jasmine (Soeursdeluxe) and Juanita (Ldngirl) trying to motivate me too! So in yet again another attempt at… View Post

Knocked Down 13 Times Before Lucky Number 14

Hello, It feels incredibly weird yet liberating to be blogging again. My last blog post was in September 2015 and to be honest, judging by its content it wasn’t exactly the most interesting of reads. My blog went from weekly posts to basically… nothing. Zero. Zilch. Pretty pathetic eh? So much for a journalist wannabe. So of course, I am super happy to be writing again and cannot wait to see what will become of this blog. The main reason that my blogging life had become virtually non-existent is simply because I had been applying for jobs – not just any… View Post

Race for Life, Hyde Park 10km 2015

The day has finally fallen upon us, where I ran the 10km Race for Life in Hyde Park, London. After months of training and practicing, building up my stamina and ability to run a distance, it has all paid off! a big yay for hard work! I decided to run my race for life for my Auntie Cely, Auntie Marina and Grandma Seher. In what has been a miserable morning full of rain, has turned into a beautiful July summers day complete with an army of women in pink t-shirts, who took over Hyde Park from 9am as the run… View Post

Race for Life – Hyde Park 10KM.

“Cancer Research UK is the world’s leading charity dedicated to beating cancer through research.” – Cancer Research UK I’m running to show my support for Cancer Research UK because its about time we kicked cancer’s butt! On Sunday 19th July 2015, I will be running the Race for Life: Hyde Park 10km.  I joined Race for Life a few months ago, and have made slow progress… Running at the gym is a lot easier because its better on my asthma… hence 5km in 42mins (yeah okay, fine I’ll aim for 10km next. baby steps baby steps.) But I’ve also progressed to… View Post

Big Easy – Lobster Lovin’

I seafood, and I eat it. – Geddit? ha ha ha. American dining restaurant, Big Easy has two branches in London: Kings Road and Covent Garden. With its amazing food, live entertainment and back bar it is no wonder that it is one of the busiest places to dine. I have been lucky enough to have eaten at Big Easy Covent Garden twice now, but that does not include being turned away at the door on four other occasions – yeah it is THAT busy. Reservations are an actual MUST for Big Easy. Nonetheless it can not be as bad… View Post
