Eating in Richmond

It’s #thursdayfriday & nearly the weekend! Tonight I’ll be featuring 5 fave restaurants in Richmond area. Which will win the #gtopspot?

  1. Thai Pin, St Margarets – The best Thai in the area and tonight’s take-away! Authentic and good value.

Warm Welcome

Evening! I recently visited a friend who’s just moved house, but was so disorganised, I didn’t have much time to buy her a pressie. Fortunately, working in the city, there are a few nice places to pick up gifts last-minute, so I didn’t turn up empty-handed.

So… I thought I’d dedicate today’s inaugural #tuesdaytreats to housewarming gifts. Next time, I’ll be much better prepared! My pick of 5 fabulous housewarming gifts to follow… but which will steal the ‘G Top Spot’ accolade today? I hope these inspire you!
