Style Note: The Isabella Oliver Cape

Posted by London Darling

Yesterday was one of those cold and breezy days in London when you really need something warm and snug to wrap up in. And what better way to wrap up than in a cape. It's the perfect alternative to a winter coat. I received this beautiful one as a Christmas Gift from one of my favourite labels Isabella Oliver.

London Fashion Week Diary: BODYAMR

Posted by London Darling

The BODYAMR show was one that I was particularly looking forward to, and it was well worth the wait. The signature draping that I love still played a huge role in the collection as an abundance of luxe fabrics and beaded embellishment.

Beauty Buzz: Liz Earle Naturally Active Skincare

Posted by London Darling

I recently changed my beauty regime to include the Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser, the Instant Boost Skin Tonic and Skin Repair Moisturiser. It's been just six days, and already I've seen a noticeable difference in the clarity of my complexion and the texture of my skin.

Located in Kensington, Bar 190 is the perfect chill-out spot for cocktail lovers. The venue has long been a hidden treasure for discerning celebrities the world over, but recently with it's new wave of burlesque events and soirees, the London party scene has finally caught on. But wait - before you start imagining barely legal club hoppers and reality TV stars queuing at the door - this place is far more sophisticated.

Inside you'll find an intimate candlelit affair and plenty of fascinating people. Be sure to order from the lush drinks menu and prepare to share the bar with high profile guests, London connoisseurs and familiar faces from the world of film and fashion. I'm sure that you'll also appreciate the dark Tudor interior and the warm, inviting atmosphere.

Cinderella's Carriage - VIP area

The VIP area aptly named Cinderella's Carriage is breathtaking with its rich red and gold soft furnishings. For a minimum spend of £100, the entire area can be yours, complete with complimentary canapés - ideal for an intimate celebration. Bar 190 is a great venue to enjoy martini cocktails with friends or to get close and personal with your beau over a glass of bubbly.

I recently went along to the bar with one of my friends to sample their popular burlesque evenings. We caught up on the week's events over a passion fruit mojito and witnessed the sultry dance moves of Miss Polly Rae and her Hurly Burly Girlys. By the end of the evening we were refreshed, relaxed and arranging our next catch-up - same time, same place. No longer a hidden treasure just for the rich and famous, the bar is officially in my very selective list of London Hot Spots.
