ThatIsBeyond… Why Wednesday is my favourite day!

There are many reasons why Wednesdays are the tops! One being that it’s the middle of the working week so every day after that, the end is officially in sight! Another is that I avoid the hordes of drunken idiots (no judgement – on occasion I am one too!) who make my late night commute […]

ThatIsbeyond… I never win anything! (Ham Yard Hotel prize breaks my losing streak)

I am a serial loser. Raffles, the Grand National, The lottery – I lose them all. BUT my losing streak was brought to a 33 year halt when mirculously I finally won something. The “something” in question was a 1950’s fancy dress party and the prize was so good that I kept it for over […]

ThatIsBeyond… What’s a family day in the park without an ice lolly? #fruitfull

Weekends are about family. (well at least for us, they are!) We facetime Toby's Grandparents and catch up on all of the family gossip, we visit his cousins at the local park, and of course our little family sit down for a lovely meal together and catch each other up on our coming weeks. Whilst […]

ThatIsBeyond… A festive night with #christmasatkew

Sometimes an impromptu magical evening is required to lift the Christmas spirits!

ThatIsBeyond… avoiding the holiday fashion Faux-Pas.

       Having flown off… to Corfu for some winter sun, it has become apparent that we Brits can lose our way easily, when it comes to holiday fashion. It’s simple mistakes, and on the most part they are needless! I should preface this post by saying that in my younger years I was so self-conscious […]

ThatIsBeyond… Look up and see the #shoppingevent!

Amongst Londoners, it is quite common to forget to look up from the pavement! Eyes focused on our mobile phones, the hustle and bustle of the daily rat race and our inner satnav counting down the paces from the tube to our place of work, we rarely take the time to look up and really […]


I am so excited to be heading into good old London Town this weekend and joining the crowds that will be visiting the SEVEN DIALS AND ST MARTIN’S COURTYARD SPRING SHOPPING EVENT (Saturday 9 May 2015, 12-5pm) Placed smack bang in the centre of town, London shopping destinations Seven Dials and St Martin’s Courtyard, nestled between Soho and Covent Garden, are set […]


I hate queues. In fact hate isn’t a strong enough word… I detest them. The very nature of queues is that there is something that you want at the end of it, and you can’t get it until everyone else in front of you has faffed around with their small change, not spent the twenty […]
