The Only Banker's Diet That Works

Bacon Butty

So it’s a new year. We gained the usual seven pounds over Christmas, we indulged in one too many mince pies, three too many roast potatoes, not to mention I don’t how many gallons of red wine, cheese board selections, and that final box of Quality Streets that we just didn’t need. 

The End of the Noughties

So it’s the end of a decade. The UK’s in a recession, but what a ten years it’s been. We’ve witnessed the unity of Brangelina, the introduction of the Blackberry, a global economic meltdown, and the rise of fashion queen Kate Moss (although she was here long before that).

The Truth About Trophy Wives

Trophy - Roy Mattappallil

Of course I can appreciate natural beauty, and yes, I applaud immaculate personal grooming, but I always wondered why some women were referred to as 'trophy wives'. But now it’s oh so clear, because they do actually deserve a medal.

X-Factor Has the X-Factor

Cheryl Cole on The X-Factor

Why, oh why, do we need to go out this weekend when we have this TV delight on at home? This is entertainment if ever there was. If the bars and the restaurants are empty on Saturday night - love it or loathe it - this is why. The X-Factor.

Can a City Girl Become a Country Girl?

North Yorkshire Moors 2 - Jamie Brelsford

Take the shops and the bars away, the people and the Tube, and what have you got? The countryside. So last month, when I found out I was going on a staycation to the depths of the British countryside in one of Devon’s hidden 'gems', I welcomed an escape from the City and was looking forward to the slow pace of life and a bit of pub grub.

Surely everyone who works in the City has a wish list. I’m not talking a bucket list like Jack Nicholson. (I’m leaving you anytime soon.) A wish list is what keeps the City types going through the early mornings and the late nights when the rest of the world is sleeping or having fun.

Hangover Hell

Wine Bottle - Marcelo Gerpe

The problem with going out and having a good time is that sometimes you have too good a time. And the only thing worse than going to work is going to work hung-over.

A Chinese Oasis

Hakkasan London

I work in the City and I know we are a Capital in the midst of a Credit Crunch. They are two words beginning to haunt me in my sleep. But we all have to go out sometimes.

HOT LIST

The Truth About Dating Traders

The fixation with dating a trader, I believe, is disillusioning to the countless girls obsessed with bagging one, and causes me to wonder: how much do the predators really know about their prey?

City Uniform

The days of school are long gone, but uniforms are still very much the standard in the City. I ran out of the Tube and stopped around the corner. I pulled out my compact for a final inspection: grey pinstripe suit, white blouse, silver studs and as minimal make-up as I could bear to wear in public.
