Behind the Scenes at the Museum

On Friday, we ventured along to the aforementioned ‘Late Night at the V&A’. The atmosphere after hours was exciting and it felt really naughty and special to be in the museum after dark! Having not been to a late night before, I have to say it was spectacularly confusing…we were given a schedule of events […] Read more…

Afternoon Delight

This is the culmination of my hunt for red velvet cupcakes (for now). A sunny day in South Kensington and a long overdue catch up with a friend led me to an opportune tea and cupcake combo at the Hummingbird Bakery. The counter was peppered with snowy, swirly, frosted cupcakes but i only had eyes […] Read more…

Faceted

At Fortnum and Mason over the weekend, I discovered Jane Carr’s beautifully designed scarves with these amazing geometric diamond and gem patterns on them. I can’t believe i’ve never noticed her work before…for me this was one of those products in life that you feel if you had designed it you would have done it […] Read more…

Cosy Day

Today was a drizzly day in Wanstead, my mum and her friend Carol came to visit for lunch. I live right on our high street so we scuttled to The Cuckfield across the road for lunch (which does the best roasts on weekends and has the sweetest garden open in the summer serving BBQ’ed food […] Read more…

Green House

I was out on Friday (which turned out to be a beautiful sunny day) in Angel looking around at some locations for a project i’m working on – and came across this beautiful house on Cross Street. I love its mix of Victorian style with pale Art Deco green accents. I made up a wonderful […] Read more…

I went to the Oxo Tower yesterday for a press event and walked over Blackfriars bridge, i dont think i’ve ever walked that way and the river was so close, it was beautiful, i really felt awed by the sight and really felt the history of our City. I looked like a tourist! Blackfriars always […] Read more…
