5 Tips for Fighting the Frizz this Winter

Winter in the UK is approaching, fast. My hair more than anything suffers at this time of year. Cold temperatures, never ending rain, blustery winds and central heating mean my hair can be just a nightmare to tame. However, over the last year or so, I've found a few ways to manage the frizz (at any time of year) that I'd love to share with you.

FODMAP Free Breakfast: Buckwheat Pancakes

If you're following a FODMAP free diet at the moment, like me, you'll know that it's really difficult to find tasty yet tummy friendly recipes that are quick and easy to make. I don't know about you but I find this no more true than at breakfast time!

REVIEW: Faith in Nature Shampoo & Conditioner

I love finding out about natural beauty products and have recently been doing some research into natural and organic skin care and want to try some different things out. Which is why I was so interested when I heard about Faith in Nature.

Juice Cleanse Recipes

It's most people's summer holiday's right now so, if you're anything like me, there's been a lot of drinking cider in the sun, eating buckets of ice cream, barbecued meats and partying away until the early hours. This, of course, puts a lot of stresses and strain on our skin, hair, digestive systems, minds and health in general.

REVIEW: Chicken Shop Tooting

Tooting is my home town and we're not often the location of a new restaurant that has a lot of 'cool' buzz around it. Chicken Shop seemed to pop up as if over night and when I went down there to check out what all the hype was about, I was ultimately surprised!

4 Festival Hair Styles

Before I go to a festival I love perusing the web to find some inspiration for festival hair-dos so that 3 days without a shower won't be a problem for my locks!

REVIEW: Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde Mascara

My favourite high street mascara of all time is the Maybelline Great Lash mascara in "Blackest Black". Seeing as I've been using this non-stop for a while now I keen to try out the new Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde Mascara.

A few Friday's ago we scrambled out of work and de-camped to East London in the promise of bonfires, street food and alcohol.

Weekend Wishlist

As London has recently turned into an uncharacteristically sun-drenched city I have predictably found myself browsing for summer essentials that I don't really need but would liven up my wardrobe & make me wistful for the next beach break.

How to Make Healthy Granola

Clean & Lean Healthy Homemade Granola
As the weather gets better here in old blightly I want something a little more fresh than porridge to eat in the morning. Last Summer I went on holiday to Spain with my friend Susannah & every morning we had lovely granola with natural yoghurt & fruit, it was just the perfect breakfast for a Summer morning. However, the varieties of granola that you buy in the shop often have hidden ingredients & sugar so this weekend I decided to make my own healthy granola. I'm also normally in a massive rush in the morning so I need something that's quick. This healthy, clean and lean granola is delicious & so quick & easy to make...!

Festival Fashion: The Kimono

With official start of the festival season Glastonbury less than 3 weeks away it's time for us ladies to start planning our festival wardrobes! In my opinion the Summer's hottest trend this year is the Kimono. Let's face it, the way the weather is going in the UK at the moment I doubt we'll all be whipping out our bikini tops and shorts for a while yet so the Kimono is the perfect antidote. You can cover up in style whilst still maintaining the Summer vibe. Style with high waisted shorts, crop top & sandals (or wellies) for the perfect festival outfit!

Situated just opposite Kensington Palace Gardens on the bustling High Street, One Kensington is an elegant oasis away from the throngs of shoppers and tourists.

Lovely Evening at Bar 366 St John's Hill

Two Loves London were very kindly invited to Bar366 on St John's Hill, Clapham, London for an evening food & drinks. We were warmly welcomed by the lovely staff and were sat on an informal sofa and low table by a big open window, which was perfect on a beautiful early summer's evening. I went with my boyfriend Patrick last Friday after work.

Wet dog days

On our last day in the Lake District we took the dogs on a long, beautiful, hilly walk and had an amazing pub lunch outside in the drizzle. The perfect antidote to congested London living. I am missing the clean air and windy walks immensely.

If you haven't noticed already, white is BIG for this summer. The colour fits perfectly along with the boho trend that's made a come back and it's a lot easier to wear than you probably think. Here are some lovely white pieces that I've picked out to share with you:

If you follow us on Instagram you'll already be familiar with my love for Brickwood. It is without a doubt my favourite coffee shop/ brunch spot in Clapham. My go-to place for catching up with friends over a yummy plate of eggs & avocado (the best brunch combo) or grabbing a coffee on the way to work. I thought Brickwood deserved a whole blogpost as a brilliant brunch destination in London, so here is a little compilation of photos comprising many visits to the Antipodean-style cafe situated right on the common.

Top Tips for Starting a Fitness Plan in The New Year

Probably the most popular New Years resolution EVER is some variation on getting healthier/ losing weight and toning up. We all rush out the first week of January and fill our fridges up with everything lean & green, resolving that this year will be the one we get the 'dream body' and stick to a gym routine for good.
