Colchester is the oldest recorded town in Britain. It was the capital of south-east England when the Romans invaded in AD 43. During the Middle Ages Colchester developed into an important weaving centre. I was interested to see a town with such an old history and decided to go and visit it.

I’ve put together 20 places with eye-catching and Instagram-worthy interior designs. I think…

July and beginning of August are for visiting Lavender fields and have some fun taking million of photos! One of the things I love about London is that almost every month something is blooming. A few years ago I went to one of the lavender fields nearby and spent an amazing time there. There is always a shop where you can not only buy lavender but also different products made…

A few weeks ago I was a guest at McQueens Flower School 20th Anniversary party/workshop in Bethnal Green. McQueens is a well-established brand not only selling beautiful flowers but also decorating London venues with gorgeous designs.   I remember a few years ago I was thinking about becoming a florist but I did nothing and gave up on that idea. I love flowers (who doesn’t?) so I was thrilled to be…
