Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Afternoon Tea

I was brought up on a healthy diet of Roald Dahl stories, and even as an adult I still revisit the quirky and bizarre fantasy world created by him for a quick read. Aside from The BFG, Charlie and the…

Hot Weather on Hampstead Heath

One thing I really love about living in London is how I can walk with no idea of where I’m going, and somehow find myself somewhere amazing. Last weekend I set off in the crazy hot weather with a general…

Blue and Yellow

It’s pretty rare that I go out out. I’m not stranger to the pub on a Friday, but generally I stay the hell away from central London on a weekend for fear of ordering a drink that’s double my annual…

Fashion: Gold and Stripes

I bought this metallic gold jumper from H&M last year, and wore it to my first ever London Fashion Week show. Following on from wearing my gold skirt at Amanda Palmer the other night, I brought the jumper out of…
