Testing the Treatment – Smooth You Dalston – Luxury Pedicure

As readers of Blush will know, I love a good treatment, and I have tried some greats. I’ve been to the outskirts of North London, swanked it up in Mayfair and been to the creme de la creme of neighbourhood classics in Chelsea and Hampstead. It’s been a while since I ventured east for a […]

Gwyneth Paltrow is famous for many things: Sliding doors (classic), that oscars speech (hilarious), Goop (admirable but depressing) and the much mocked ‘conscious uncoupling’ statement (embarrassing). But what I know and will always love her for is Margot. I watched the Royal Tennenbaums on a flight to visit my family in Hong Kong, upon landing […]
