Watch House Coffee

A weekend would not be complete without a Watch House coffee date. To say we are big fans is an understatement to which our rapid turnover of loyalty cards would attest. Having been spoiled for choice in Australia with outstanding coffee this local gem definitely hits the spot for an artisan caffeine fix. The small…

Oh I do like to be beside the seaside

There is something about the sunshine that draws British crowds to the beach in their droves. We don’t get days like last week very often, but when it is 34 degrees and you are stuck in a central London office – you can bet that everyone around you is dreaming of their weekend at the…

Restaurant Story

This is a Michelin Star ‘Story’ that I have been wanting to enjoy ever since I moved to Bermondsey. It gets booked up ages in advance – so when we tried to book an anniversary treat in March we ended up with a Tuesday evening treat in June! But goodness me was it worth the wait. Story…

Sew Over It

If you have seen me at all in May you will know that all my chat has been about my Tuesday nights spent at Sew Over It. If you haven’t heard of them you should check out their Instagram as it is a thing of beauty: https://www.instagram.com/sewoveritlondon/ Founded by Lisa Comfort they have two London locations (Clapham…

‘Not On The High Street’ Open Door

Online shopping is my fave. Browsing without the effort of actually leaving my sofa (and often seeing the full range available that may not be held in store). Not on the High Street is definitely a go to for personalised presents or just something a bit different for that friend who has everything. It hosts…

A Wee Video

I absolutely love pictures. I love capturing moments, especially when I am travelling, and I love pouring over them when I get home again. Video was something I hadn’t really considered before but we set off to Australia armed with my sister’s GoPro (thanks Meg!) ready to have a go. The camera model didn’t let…

Brunching in Australia

Australia is known for its postcard worthy beaches, laid back ‘surfer’ attitude and very scary animals. Or maybe that is just me? However, it should be known as the land of breakfast dreams come true. Seriously. The coffee is some of the best you will ever taste and the delicious breakfasts look like they have jumped right…

Paper Anniversary

It is our first anniversary on Monday. A whole year of being married. Marriage is actually brilliant, I can’t say it enough. This pleasure/achievement is traditionally marked by a paper gift. We are both lovers of a good notebook but I think between us we could fill a bookshelf with the yet unused notebooks of…
