Grace Belgravia

This week  has been one of those mad weeks with loads on, but everything being positive and moving in the right direction.

Early in the week it was a 5am start to set up a networking event at Grace Belgravia.  Grace is a new ladies only club just behind Knightsbridge, between Waitrose and Mosimanns.

It is probably the most beautiful and livable interior design I have ever seen.  I've probably mentioned before about how I get quite bored in those Zen like spas and that all the emptiness makes me feel distinctly uncomfortable, my mind goes to depressing places and I start to feel well, just empty.

Grace is different to that, it is precise and ordered, but very busy, there is lots to see and discover and many details that occupy your mind and keep you centred in the present without feeling lost.

Full membership is quite pricey (around £3,000 a year) for that you get full use of the spa and all of the classes, but there is an evening membership which is only £250, it is offered fairly quietly, but I am tempted to join as I loved the crowd there.  Unlike most uber-luxury places, it's not full of women hunting for a rich man.  Quite the reverse, since it's ladies only, it's a place for women who like the company of women (not sure how to put that without some kind of double entendre).  Simply, if you are a girl's girl you will love it.  Everyone is relaxed and chatty, it is the friendliest I have ever found a group of London ladies to be.  There's just no distrust/female competitive behaviour, if that's your bag you wouldn't even consider joining.  I thought it would be all local Knightsbridge ladies who lunch, but it was mainly business women, who use the club as a second office, and what a beautiful second office...

I wore my Jaeger trousers and Alberta Ferretti top from the Music Rooms, (just realised I looked like I was in my beautician's uniform)

I was admiring how pretty the roses were, when they came to change them as they were looking a bit old!
My friend looking stunning in a Preen dress she tried.

We finished the day with a couple of glasses of wine and some of the delicious food made on site, it was a lovely day, and I met some great people.


  1. he he! You looked great (did you do many manicures).? :)

  2. i would have been quite happy to, in order to get to go there each day. I chatted loads to the staff, they all loved working there, and were encouraged to come up with new ideas for recipes or drinks that they then experimented with in the kitchen. They were making home made almond milk in the bar in the afternoon.

  3. Sounds fantastic, must investigate! Love your friend's dress and you looked very stylish too. Xx

    1. definitely worth a call if you are shopping for the day in town, i am sure they are very relaxed about people popping in to look around.

  4. now that would be a place I would like to go even work like to say..... looks stunning. x

  5. What a pretty club! Nice not to have all of those sweaty men about having a beer after tennis !

  6. I feel the same way about those zen like spaces.

    1. If you would like to email me

    2. will do, looking forward to meeting up on your trip!

  7. Lordy, I love your outfit, I think for the first time in my life I would like a pair of trousers, I loved you in the all white ensemble a few weeks back too. Thanks for the peek, that's so interesting, I was wondering what it would be like, it did scare me a little.

    1. when some one first explained it to me, i thought the concept sounded a bit odd, but the execution and the people it has attracted are perfect.

  8. Sounds like you had a great day and what an amazing space. Loving that Preen dress x

    1. so flattering on her, but a bit low at the front, the problem is it will probably 75% off in the sale, so why would you buy now?!

  10. Problem: HP Printer not connecting to my laptop.

    I had an issue while connecting my 2 year old HP printer to my brother's laptop that I had borrowed for starting my own business. I used a quick google search to fix the problem but that did not help me.

    I then decided to get professional help to solve my problem. After having received many quotations from various companies, i decided to go ahead with Online Tech Repair (

    Reasons I chose them over the others:
    1) They were extremely friendly and patient with me during my initial discussions and responded promptly to my request.
    2) Their prices were extremely reasonable.
    3) They were ready and willing to walk me through the entire process step by step and were on call with me till i got it fixed.

    How did they do it
    1) They first asked me to state my problem clearly and asked me a few questions. This was done to detect any physical connectivity issues with the printer.
    2) After having answered this, they confirmed that the printer and the laptop were functioning correctly.
    3) They then, asked me if they could access my laptop remotely to troubleshoot the problem and fix it. I agreed.
    4) One of the tech support executives accessed my laptop and started troubleshooting.
    5) I sat back and watched as the tech support executive was navigating my laptop to spot the issue. The issue was fixed.
    6) I was told that it was due to an older version of the driver that had been installed.

    My Experience
    I loved the entire friendly conversation that took place with them. They understood my needs clearly and acted upon the solution immediately. Being a technical noob, i sometimes find it difficult to communicate with tech support teams. It was a very different experience with the guys at Online Tech Repairs. You can check out their website or call them on 1-914-613-3786.
    Would definitely recommend this service to anyone who needs help fixing their computers.
    Thanks a ton guys. Great Job....!!


I would love to hear from you and quite happy for some lively debate so feel free to say what you think! ....
