Top London Cinemas

Bonjour bonjour. After much cheese noshing, vino drinking and cheek-kissing I am back in sunny England. I’d forgotten just how beautiful Brittany is – so beautiful in fact that I even managed to turn a blind eye to the wood effect wallpaper in one of the hotel bedrooms (it also came with bobbly brown wool […] Read more…

We Make London

Notecards above by Cecily Vessey There’s something about a mini-break that brings out the psycho in me. I wish I could be one of those spontaneous types who just books a flight and then finds accommodation/ bars/restaurants as they go. However, even the very thought of this brings on a sweat. Holidays for me involve […] Read more…

I’ve never had so much […] Read more…

Getting Started

When I was young I was always drawing, cutting, pasting and creating something.
