Sushi Samba Sushi Samba

London has been experiencing a heatwave lately and I am loving it! One of the best places to escape the city and cool off in the clouds is Sushisamba. It is located on the 40th floor of Heron Tower just by Liverpool Street tube station.  The only way to reach the restaurant is through a glass elevator that ascends along the exterior wall of the building.  (It made me audibly yelp the first time I rode in it so hold on if you are faint of heart).  You must make a reservation if dining in the restaurant as it is quite the hot spot. The food itself is a combination of Japanese, Brazilian and Peruvian cuisines most of which is all served as small plates so best for sharing with your table. I highly recommend if you are unable to get a table to just go for a drink as you can linger at their outdoor bar and have some of the best views of London.  Also if you can’t make it out to an amusement park you could just get your thrills by taking a few rides up and down in their elevator….. Cheers!

Garsington Opera

Posted in There's {a} Way

OperaHello! This past weekend I also attended the opera in the countryside which was a fabulously formal affair.  I had found this vintage dress some time back and was just waiting for the right occasion to wear it. I opted to keep accessories in the same colour scheme (the dress was drama enough) and topped the look off with a rich red lip for a pop of elegant colour.  For some of my top picks for recreating the look be sure to scroll through the gallery of items below. This is the time to find some great deals as sales are in final markdown phase!  Cheers!OperaOpera

Everyone talks about making a grand entrance.... I am a firm believer in making just as grand an exit!

Henley Royal Regatta

Posted in There's {a} Way


Hello! Just a few quick snaps from this past weekend’s adventure at the historic Henley Royal Regatta.  I find it is easiest when you are unsure of what to wear to a certain event to model your outfit after a theme.  Mine of course was inspired by boats from head to toe!  It wouldn’t be an outfit for me without layering on the jewels. In this case I couldn’t decide on one, so I wore them all.  Hope you had a grand weekend! Cheers!
