First of all, just a lil side note: I feel like I’m really struggling to keep on top of blogging and life at the moment, hence the lack of recent posts. A lot has been going on lately, I got a new job (woohoooo), I’m in the process of moving into London (double woohoo) and I’ve just got back from a trip to Copenhagen (blog posts pending). I’ve also recently…

It was a warm Sunday afternoon – you know the kind where you’re too hot with a jumper on, but too cold when you take it off? After spending the afternoon by Tower Hill watching the marathon and soaking up the atmosphere of London in the sun, Dom and I headed south of the river to Balham to visit The Honest Italian for some authentic Italian pizza and wine.

I recently bought myself a new camera, and I’ll be the first to admit I’m still a proper photography noob. So, I thought where better to experiment than Lights of Soho?

And last weekend all of my curry-related dreams came true, as I hopped on the tube to Liverpool Street after work and went for a Friday night curry with the bf at…

As you may or may not know from reading my post about 12 things to do in London, one of the places I wanted to visit was a little church garden between Tower Hill and Monument called St Dunstan-in-the-East. After the church was bombed during the Blitz in 1941 (didn’t realise this was gonna be a history lesson did ya?), all that’s left is the tower and steeple – the…

I think any girl who has watched First Dates, whether religiously or just from flicking through and laughing at the awkward-ness of it all has definitely dreamed (probably more than once) about going to the First Dates restaurant. Amirite? The food always looks so good, the restaurant looks swanky af with glistening wine glasses and cutlery, and you picture yourself there shoving strawberries and chocolate fondue in your partner’s face…

Back in summer when the days were hot and the nights were cool (actually pretty flippin’ chilly), I was told about this place called Last Days of Shoreditch. Now, I live in west London. In fact, I live right on the edge of west London so I was really hoping that travelling all the way to Shoreditch wasn’t going to be a waste of time. And within five minutes of…
