White Magic in Nepal

I am one very lucky woman. Freely admit it 🙂 I have just returned from my 2nd Big Adventure in the hills this year, with the one and only White Magic Adventure Travels. In June I did the Panpatia Col trek, where I was very below par, performance-wise, and it...

The Summer House, Bangkok

On a recent rainy Friday in Bangkok, I stopped by The Jam Factory to explore, to potter and to have lunch. As one does. The whole area is super – a former factory beautifully & thoughtfully renovated and turned into a mixed-use area. The architect responsible for the project has...

How is the ASICS Lite-Show long sleeved T?

Pre-review disclosure. I am an ASICS running influencer in India (where I live) and as such get to try out and wear their products. BUT – and this really is very important – ASICS has never once even so much as suggested I review their products. Not once. I am...

ASICS Tanren sports bra

Yesterday

“Yesterday” is a fun, happy, feel-good movie, and after the horrid week we’ve all had, this film came as a real tonic. (Our dog died unexpectedly, aged 6 – that’s why we had a lousy week.) Anyway, back to the film. Super fun. Great music – obviously! An absolutely stellar,...

White Magic Adventure Travel. Simply the best in the business

It’s all too easy to complain, isn’t it? We don’t like a restaurant/product/whatever and, quick as a flash, we complain, write a snarky Tripadvisor review, or simply badmouth the company. Good service, however, is a different ballgame altogether. Once the event is over, we always mean to write and say...

ROCKETMAN

Disclosure time. I am card carrying Elton fan. Loved him & his music for years. And I’ve always admired the way he got his life back on track, and has used his fame and fortune to help AIDS research. Plus he’s adopted 2 children. Plus he loves football. What’s not...

How cool is the ASICS Metarun singlet?

Before I start, a disclaimer. I am a running influencer for ASICS in Delhi, India where I live. Having said that, I also need to state for the record that ASICS has put me under NO obligation whatsoever to write about, or review their products. Not once have I been...

The River Art Hotel in Chiang Mai

Pre-review disclosure: we knew of the owners of this delightful hotel, via some official, work stuff in Bangkok. Knew of them, as opposed to know them. We’d never met, never even spoken on the phone. All we knew is that they ran a hotel in Chiang Mai. So when we...

The Nizam of Hyderabad’s jewels on display in New Delhi

Delhi readers, take note! If you haven’t already seen this astounding exhibition at the National Museum, you only have until May 5th to do so. Trust me, it is so fabulous that you will not regret it. I had seen the jewels when they were last exhibited at the Museum...
