Fair luxury presents @ Goldsmiths’ centre

The Goldsmiths' centre in Farringdon is described as a unique community for design, creativity and craftsmanship. It is a leading charity for professional training and plays host to events, exhibitions, workshops and studio space. I visited after hearing about the Fair luxury responsibly sourced jewellery selling exhibition. As I walked through the entrance I was … Continue reading Fair luxury presents @ Goldsmiths’ centre

Courtauld gallery @ Somerset house

The Courtauld gallery is situated at the entrance to Somerset house and I have actually walked past it a couple of times without realising the masterpieces that hang within it. The collection of paintings range from early renaissance into the twentieth century and features legendary artists such as Van Gogh, Monet and Gauguin. The collection … Continue reading Courtauld gallery @ Somerset house

Imperial war museum

The Imperial war museum in London has been housed in the previous Bethlem hospital since 1936 but has in recent years undergone a £40 million revamp. The museum records the civil and military war effort and sacrifice of Britain and its Empire since 1914 and has some spectacular displays on show. As you enter the … Continue reading Imperial war museum

Photography project – Kensington Palace

I recently attended Kensington palace to photograph some beautiful florals at an event that was taking place there. While waiting for the displays to be set up I thought I would take a look around and photograph the amazingly ornate rooms as I have never visited the palace before. The rooms were really spectacular and … Continue reading Photography project – Kensington Palace

Photography project – The garden edition

I have come across quite a few garden blog posts recently and they all seem to be full of bountiful blooms, immaculate lawns and ornate décor. Then I look out of my window and just see a mess of overgrown bushes, withered flowers and a dilapidated shed. A few years ago I decided to give my shed a … Continue reading Photography project – The garden edition

Photography project – #vantagepoint

There is something quite magical about the fairground carousel, the old Victorian style gives them an eloquence that other rides just don't have. I wouldn't really associate Paris with the carousel but while I was there recently I saw loads of them and they are so pretty that you just cant help taking photos of … Continue reading Photography project – #vantagepoint

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. When I was younger I spent loads of time at markets, from food shopping with my mum at Hoxton market to clothes shopping with my friends down Petticoat lane, but I have … Continue reading Jubilee market – Covent garden

Paris – exploring La Defense

I imagine Paris is a city similar to London in the sense that it has well known sights and attractions, particularly in the centre, but also has lesser known areas that are also filled with interesting things to see. As soon as we stepped off the metro at La Defense our first thought was that it must be the Canary … Continue reading Paris – exploring La Defense

Art of the brick – Lego superheroes

I often look at amazing Lego structures and think I could probably make something similar but then I get to work and all that comes out of it is a staircase, one that doesn't even stand up! So when I see art, such as these DC superheroes that were created by the likes of Nathan … Continue reading Art of the brick – Lego superheroes
