Out & About @ Choo Cafe, Harrods

If you’re a regular visitor to SashaShantel.com, you will know that I recently share a press release sharing the news that the High Fashion brand Jimmy Choo, had launched a Cafe; for a limited time only at Harrod’s Knightsbridge. My initial impressions were good because the images of the pink aesthetic and pretty cake looked quite inviting.

Jimmy Choo Opens Choo Cafe Pop-Up in Harrods

This non-coffee drinker sure does enjoy heading to cool cafe spots with super pretty aesthetic so I can take even more pretty content for my Instagram! and yes that is exactly what I will be doing at the Choo Cafe which has recently opened in Harrods for a limited time only. The decor is perfect for my fellow content creators and lovers of coffee and cake and I have scheduled a trip to head down there in the next few weeks.

You Are What You Eat: 5 Ways To Glow Up From The Inside Out

We’ve all heard the old adage, “You are what you eat.” in relation to the food we eat and in maintaining our bodies optimal health and for warding off disease. Well babes, the exact same phytochemicals, vitamins, nutrients and minerals your body needs to function at its best are equally essential for clear skin, bright smiles, strong nails and clear, sparkling eyes.

#TheFoodieFiles | The Cow @ Stratford Westfield

It’s been a while since I was gifted the opportunity to review a restaurant but the foodie in me knew that when the time came, I wouldn’t be dissatisfied and I can honestly say that the food at The Cow, situated two minutes from Stratford Tube station, was in fact excellent; from the starter, right through to the main course and dessert, the food tasted great and was without some of the best pub food I’ve ever sampled.

Celebrating another year – Afternoon Tea at Ambassadors Bloomsbury Hotel

was going to name this post “Levelling Up” as this is what always comes to mind when I go to afternoon tea. I love the feeling it brings and it reminds me of why I keep pushing and working on this blog and my other ventures. What it would be like to go to afternoon tea whenever I wanted and to review various swanky hotels and seeing what they have to offer. I am blessed with the fact that I ran my own online magazine for 8 years which afforded me the luxury of reviewing ALOT of different afternoon tea venues. Yet, that was then and this is now and I really want to take sashashantel.com to next level and to review more venues like these.

Embracing a new way of eating with Green Chef

I love food and those of you who follow me over on the Foodie Files know that eating is one of my favourite pastimes. However, when it comes to cooking the food, I have been known to be pretty lazy in that department 🙂 However, during lockdown, I made a conscious effort to get into the kitchen and learn how to cook and I must say I have become quite a seasoned chef.

The Best Thai Experience at Cats Cafe Des Artistes

Last week I took a week off work and I really needed it to be a good week. My last annual leave break was plagued with period pains and migraines and after what has been a stressful few months, I had high hopes for the week. You’ll be happy to hear guys that my week was AMAZING. I worked on my brands and got more clear on my direction, I spent time working from my unit at Peckham Levels for three days and I also was able to take time out to catch up with some of my life long friends. Friday night saw me catch up with the talented director and producer Jason Nwansi. We had made plans to dine at Cats Cafe Des Artistes before heading to a party after.
