Kiko Matthews: 100 togetHER…

You may have read Lucy’s previous blog on charities and noted the incredible challenge which Kiko Matthews is going to attempt in January 2018. In fact, we were so amazed at the enormity of it that we have decided to support her. In this blog, I will give you a bit of information about what the challenge is, the reason for her taking part in the challenge and what you can do to help, as well as giving a bit of background on Kiko herself. In 2009, Kiko Matthews was diagnosed with a very rare illness called Cushing’s disease. This not only caused a tumour on her pituitary gland but also created many other life- threatening problems such as diabetes and muscle wasting. She made a remarkable recovery, and eight years on wants to see how she can push her body to the limit. In January 2018, Kiko Matthews is going to attempt to row across the Atlantic unsupported. Not only does she want to do this, she wants to be the first woman to row the 3,000 miles solo. Her aim is to do it in 45 days, if completed in that time, it would be 11 days quicker than the current world record. She believes that aside from the inevitable physical endurance, which up to a point you can train for, the other challenge faced will be mental...

Our Night with Kiko…

OUR NIGHT WITH KIKO MATTHEWS   We have been talking about Kiko on our social media and blogs for quite a while now. So when Kiko asked if we wanted her to do a talk we absolutely leapt at the opportunity. If you have read our blogs on her before, you will know that we completely admire and respect what she is doing. Having heard her talk we are now in utter awe of her! Last night, we had such a great evening at the Marquis of Westminster with our candidates, clients and good friends. The prosecco was flowing and chips (sweet potato we’ll have you know) were being eaten. We were all there to listen to Kiko Matthews talk about her incredible solo transatlantic adventure in 2018. Our guests were all transfixed on the enormity of her row. The talk was factual, fascinating and hilarious! For those that don’t know, in January 2018, Kiko Matthews is aiming to row the Atlantic solo. She also wants to break the Women’s world record by 10 days, therefore completing the 3000 miles in 45 days. This would be no mean feat for anyone to achieve, but Kiko is doing it having overcome Cushing’s disease, as well as having the tumour raise it’s ugly head again, a few months ago, with just six months to go until the big row. In 2009, Kiko..

The Blue Bird Not only has the blossom carried colour to the streets, it has also brought floral wonders to the menus and cocktails at The Blue Bird. They will be introducing a Royal Garden Cocktail.  This delicious drink is full of rose-petal gin, maraschino, rhubarb liqueur, lemongrass cordial, fresh thyme, raspberries and topped with sparkling wine! So why not sit in the stone courtyard looking onto the King’s Road catwalk while sipping your delicious cocktail? The Ivy You can't miss a visit to The Ivy on the Kings Road. It’s walls completely hidden with cascading bright yellow and white flowers.  Gentle music floating through the windows makes it irresistible to walk by.  If you are looking for somewhere for lunch, drinks, afternoon tea or dinner The Ivy is defiantly one to consider. With inspiration taken from the Chelsea flower show, they have added two bespoke refreshing summer cocktails to tantalise your taste buds! To top it all off, their garden is squirrelled away at the back and something not to be..
