#KYCU is going to be my anthem for this week. Love the lyrics. "I'm the Lordship of Liquid...!".

Such a wonderful idea. So simple but with the tech to back it up.

Kathy is a real tour de force. ActionGlobal is definitely doing some amazing work and is spreading its network far and wide based on traditional, PR values that are rooted in solid strategy. I had the pleasure of meeting up with Kathy and her impressive team in Cyprus last year and was blown away by the work these guys do. Whilst Action's been around for ages, I predict we'll be hearing a lot more about the group and network in the coming years,

I'm trying to drink more water in 2015 and cut back on the cans of Coke Zero! Have to say, been feeling a lot less groggy so far.

Go Shirin! Love this idea of Blackout although probably unworkable in a London PR agency. That said, Christmas period is a good example of Blackout...

One of the best restaurants in the region. This gem of a place is off the beaten track but well worth a visit. Run by an accomplished husband and wife team who have worked under Michelin starred chefs around the globe, La Grangée is an example of modern French food at its very best. Don't be fooled by the restaurant's minimilalist simplicity. The food here is exquisitely presented and prepared with pure love. We opted for the festive tasting menu which left us speechless. The dessert was a key highlight together with the scallop dish. The house aperitif was also out of this world. One of the charming features at this place is that everything is either home-grown or sourced locally. Definitely worth a visit!

Despite there being several chemists in the surrounding area, I always go to Newmans for a few reasons: 1. The quality of service - always, friendly and polite 2. The knowledge that the pharmacist has - she often offers better advice than my GP 3. They have fully embraced electronic prescriptions and online ordering which makes things so much easier

I have to say that this is one of Kingston's true gems. Forget all of the other restaurants and eateries along the Riverside Edge, Le Bun is where it's at. Firstly, the restaurant itself is quite cosy, with comfortable seating, quirky deco and romantic candles (for evening diners). The drinks are absolutely amazing. They're served in jam-jars which makes the whole experience slightly speak-easyish and fun. These guys know how to mix a mean margarita (with an orange liqueur twist) as well as a boozy Picante De La Case with good quality tequila. For me, I have to say the chilli beer was a real find (yes, a chilli inside a bottle of beer) and one worth heading to Le Bun for during Happy Hour where you get two drinks for the price of one. But let's not beat around the bush here. The true reason to visit Le Bun is for the incredible brioche burgers. If you're serious about your pulled meat, duck confit, beef patties... this is a place you NEED to check out. MY wife chose the Bourginionne which was a pulled beef sandwich smothered in delicious sauce and cheese. I had the Royale which was the most succulent beef patty (8 hours in the making) with goats cheese, and lots of additional garnishes that made it a burger fit for a king. Also, you must try the kale which is a really pleasant surprise as an accompaniment to your meal. I could go back just for a portion of kale if needed. The service is great and the mood is just right for hanging out with people you like in a place where they serve a good selection of authentic drinks with food worth getting your fingers mucky for! Le Bun, c'est cool!

Rianne is an amazing physiotherapist who definitely knows her stuff. From the moment I walked in, she was able to assess my posture and get to the real issue that was causing me back pain. The clinic itself is calm and peaceful and the environment really puts patients at ease. I also appreciated the way that Rianne gave me easy to follow tips and advice on how to incorporate daily exercise into my working week. I highly recommend Rianne and her team to anyone seeking good quality, professional physio services.

My wife and I signed up with many local estate agents when looking for a rental property in Surbiton last year and I have to say that Humphrey and Brand was the most professional of the lot. We ended up renting a lovely one bedroom flat from them and everything went as smooth as possible. The folks at Humphrey and Brand (in particular Amanda) are incredibly helpful and understand the needs of both tenants and landlords. I highly recommend the company.
