Self-Drive Boating with Go Boat London


Hey Guys,

I was recently able to add a new key skill to my CV - “sailor”. Okay maybe thats a bit of an exaggeration, but the sentiment remains the same. Coincidentally, my email from Go Boat arrived just a day after I had watched the film Adrift (and cried) luckily for me, my experience was nothing like the movie Adrift...

I was kindly invited, along with 7 of my friends, to test drive a Go Boat, at their newest branch opening - Kingston upon Thames! I am not one to turn down an adventure, so I of course arranged a trip right away.

An Instagram Guide to: Portsmouth


Hey Guys,

This year has been whisking me away to the British south coast time and time again! From a recent press trip to Southampton, to my family holiday in Littlehampton and now, a trip to Portsmouth! I was kindly offered the chance to discover Portsmouth as part of a press trip to the Mary Rose Museum. I of course took the opportunity to also create lots of lovely Instagram content and put together this blog post for all you snappy, insta-lovers, who would also like to find some seriously cool backgrounds! Make sure to give me a follow on Instagram (www.instagram.com/eboniivoryblog) and let me know if you find any of these locations yourself by tagging me! Enjoy!

Exploring The Mary Rose Museum, Portsmouth


Hey Guys,

Now, I am the first to jump at the opportunity for a bit of an adventure, to learn something new and for a bit of exploring. So when the chance came up to visit a new city and create content around an exciting exhibition, I couldn't wait!
I was kindly invited to Portsmouth to explore the wonderful Mary Rose Museum. Set within Portsmouth's Historic DockyardI had a great time learning all about this fantastic ship. From Henry VIII to all of the crew members (even the ship's dog) up until it's sinking and eventual excavation!

Keep reading to explore the hidden treasures along with me. Make sure you stay to the end, where I will be sharing a super special 25% off entry code with you!

Royal Afternoon Tea in the Clouds with Spinnaker Tower, Portsmouth


Hey Guys,

As you may have noticed from the sudden influx in Portsmouth content on my blog; I went to Portsmouth! It was during this visit that myself and my blogger pal Hebe were kindly invited by the team at Emirates Spinnaker Tower to sample the delightful Royal High Tea to celebrate Queen Victoria's 200th birthday! It was a wonderful experience. I am no stranger to Afternoon Tea, it is one of my favourite things to do here in the UK. I have a whole section dedicated to Afternoon Tea here on EBONI + IVORY should you wish to delve deeper into my obsession!

Afternoon Tea at Cobbles Tea Room, Rye


Hi Guys,

Today's post is a little bit of a throwback to last summer, which saw me and my friends travelling across the south of England, visiting the most 'Instagrammable' locations. There were many fantastic places that we were able to see, including this beautifully quaint tea room, down a cobbled street of Rye, Kent.

Secret 'Instagrammable' Rooftop in Florence


Hey Guys,

Today marks about a year since my last big batch of travelling. After an amazing trip to Italy and then North America, I truly miss getting out and about in the world (I have been plotting and scheming my next adventure though!)
Whilst in Florence, I decided to make it my mission to find the location that had taken my breath away on Instagram time and time again. Various big fashion bloggers had done some of their best posing and pouting on a rooftop in front of the gorgeous Duomo. I found it near impossible to locate the exact rooftop. Google searches had left me high and dry and I was close to accepting that perhaps this blogger bucket list item would be left unticked...

My Curly Hair Care


Hey Guys,

I recently visited Just Cuts in Wandsworth for their salon opening. I thought it would be wise to disclose that they kindly sponsored some social posts from me, however, this post in not sponsored and all views are my own. 

Hello Spring!


Hello Spring!

I thought I would do a blog post to commemorate the start of this new season! With the clocks going forward over the past weekend, many people were upset at losing an hour of sleep. For me, that one hour sacrifice came with the knowledge that I would be gaining longer evenings and better lighting in my apartment, so I am here for it! 
I most definitely felt the affects of the winter on my mental health and well-being for the first time ever. I'm not sure if that is because I am more aware and connected with my mental health or if it's because I had truly never been affected before. Either way, it is a good thing to take note of in order for me to be more prepared for next year. However, for now, I am just looking ahead to sunnier days, a bit of travelling, more fashion content and longer days...

Celebrating 3 Years of EBONI + IVORY!


It feels like only yesterday that I was writing my “Celebrating 2 Years of EBONI + IVORY” blog post, fresh from an Italian adventure, looking forward to another year in this business we call blogging. Well, here we are again. I made it through another year! *confetti canon* 
From my first press trip abroad, to working on a huge project with Kia, travelling across North America and rekindling an old romance, 2018 will certainly be a hard one to top! I have loved sharing my past year of adventures online, so here are is a roundup of my favs:
