Geffrye museum – Shoreditch

The Geffrye museum, situated on Kingsland road in East London, explores the home and home life from 1600 to the present day. It reminds me of a historic Ikea only you cant enter the rooms an try out the furniture. The museum is set in beautiful 18th-century Grade I-listed almshouses of the Ironmongers' Company and … Continue reading Geffrye museum – Shoreditch

The chocolate museum – Brixton

I am not sure I know anybody that isn't a fan of chocolate, I know that I absolutely love it! I have often wondered how anybody managed to discover such a great tasting product so when I realised that there was a chocolate museum just down the road I had to go and visit. Hidden away … Continue reading The chocolate museum – Brixton

The rookery at Streatham common

Situated between Streatham and Norwood, Streatham common is a mass of green space that is hard to miss. I have lived in and around the area for over 20 years and so have spent a lot of time on the common.

Bodean’s – Covent garden

Bodean's is described as London's original BBQ smokehouse and was the brainchild of Andre Blais. Back in 2002 his dream was to bring the taste, the style and the soul of his beloved Kanvas city barbeque to the UK. There are currently 8 branches across London. I am a fan of Bodean's food, it is really … Continue reading Bodean’s – Covent garden

Silent disco at London sea life

I wouldn't have thought of the London aquarium as a setting to host a disco but it actually worked really well. You may have seen my post on the silent disco at the shard and I also recently visited the aquarium to see the new ocean invaders so this was a lovely opportunity to combine the two experiences … Continue reading Silent disco at London sea life

Rum kitchen with the cake app

The cake app is like the Uber for restaurants, book a table, turn up, order, eat and pay using your mobile phone...simple! (sorry no cake involved, unless you order it for desert) When I was offered the chance to review the cake app I couldn't really say no, I seem to have become accustomed to … Continue reading Rum kitchen with the cake app

A very sweet gallery

A wise man (his name was Samual Johnson) once said 'A man that is tired of London is tired of life' and I wholeheartedly agree with him. For those that are constantly craving new adventures, seek to eat cutting edge cuisines or even want a quiet oasis surrounded by trees then London is the place for you! What I love about … Continue reading A very sweet gallery

Jubilee market – Covent garden

With the summer season upon us it is a great time to shop outdoors at the many markets that London has to offer.
