I have recently returned from beautiful Paris following attendance and presentation at an international medical conference. I stayed at the Hotel Chavanel, a recently opened boutique hotel tucked away in the Madeleine district, 8th Arrondissement. It was only a stone’s throw away from the Galeries Lafayette with its roof top […]

Heath Ceramics LA – Edith Heath and Adam Silverman. BlogtourLA .
During Blog Tour LA, we were lucky to visit Heath Ceramics, kindly organised by Veronika Miller of Modenus after a tweet request. I have always yearned to visit this special place. I have summarised below a brief history of the company, which I found most interesting. Edith Heath, the Danish founder of Heath Ceramics, was […]
A visit to Kelly Wearstler’s LA office and shop – part of BlogtourLA with Modenus
The blogtour LA with Modenus has started and what an amazing start it was. I am in awe of Veronika Miller for organising such an amazing itinerary for us, considering she has just finished a blogtour in London. The highlight of day 1 was our visit to Kelly Wearstler’s office […]
West Elm and Ten Over Six – the vibrant colours of LA
I’ve arrived safe and sound in LA, for the Modenus Blog Tour due to commence this afternoon, for the next 5 days. Due to intense jet lag, I’ve been able to make good use of those awake hours by writing this post. I came a few days early in order […]
Shopping in Copenhagen
I thought I’d give you the final tour of some of the other places I visited in Copenhagen. First up, the renowned Royal Smushi cafe, a pre-requisite stopover for lunch or tea. The word Smushi has been derived from ‘Smorrebrod’ (the traditional Danish open faced sandwich) and ‘Sushi’. Served on […]
Where to stay in Copenhagen – an airbnb flat in the cool area of Island Brygge.
Hope everyone had a good weekend. The kids are due back to school tomorrow, so I have been busy ensuring all is ready for the first day of term. I thought I’d share with you where I stayed whilst in Copenhagen. As we wanted to live amongst the locals, we […]
Designer Zoo in Copenhagen, a cool design concept store
Whilst in Copenhagen, I came across Designer Zoo, a concept store for Danish craft and design. I have selected my favourites for this post. Some of the items are new finds, not seen in the mainstream shops of Copenhagen. The above colourful containers are by All That Clay, designed by […]
What to do in Copenhagen – Louisiana museum of modern art.
Last Thursday, we visited the Louisiana museum of modern art in Copenhagen. The train from Central station to Humlebaek was only 45 minutes. Founded by Knud Jensen, the name Louisiana came from the original owner, Alexander Brun’s three wives. They were all called Louise. Interesting coincidence, don’t you think? I actually […]
Jaegersborggade – a cool street in Copenhagen to explore.
Yesterday was a fun day out with the family in Copenhagen, but before I start to tell you all about it, I would like to acknowledge the lovely people who have told me about this and the many other places I have explored and dined in Copenhagen. They are Rikke […]
Danish Design Centre, Copenhagen
En route to the Tivoli gardens in Copenhagen yesterday, I came across the Danish Design Centre. Despite there being no exhibition showing, the centre itself was a rich resource of design. As I entered, the colourful Doo-Wop lights by Louis Poulsen caught my eye. It was interesting to find out […]
Architecture in Copenhagen
Just popping over to post some pictures whilst on holiday in Copenhagen. The mention of Copenhagen conjures up an image of history steep in design. This was certainly evident in the architecture as we strolled along the street. Love the old style facades of houses in varied colours, lining the […]
A day in the Wiltshire countryside
Yesterday was certainly a ‘full’ day. I started off with a fairly busy morning in the Emergency department. When I finished, I jumped into the car with the family, determined to make the most of a sunny day. We decided to head into the Wiltshire countryside for some fresh outdoor […]
