London Attractions That Don’t Make The Postcards

If you’re taking a trip to London, chances are you have your sights set on a few attractions you’ve seen on postcards or in similar images of the city. Like a lot of major cities, London has a way of showing off its top sights and activities. For instance, you might want to walk by Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, or take a tour of Westminster Abbey. You might want to ride to the top of the London…

Big Moe’s Diner, Whitechapel

The other night I decided to treat my boyfriend by taking him to a restaurant we’ve been meaning to check out for a while, Big Moe’s Diner in Whitechapel. It’s just a short bus journey from where we live, right next to Aldgate East station. Oh boy, we were impressed. Big Moe’s is an amazing retro 50’s-style American diner, it’s absolutely gorgeous inside, with great food and wonderful milkshakes. I loved the decor, and of course the retro music –…

The London Beatles Store

Hi! Long time, no blog! I’ve been a bit MIA this past month due to final year exams, but they finished a few days ago so I’m freeeeee! (…except for working 5 days a week, and starting my Master’s degree in September…) Anyway, I’ve got lots of blog posts coming up in June, and hopefully some videos too. I’ve been busy with a few concerts (got Gorillaz coming up on June 8th too!), and I went to see the Addams…

New Hair, New Me, with Rush Hair Enfield

New Hair, New Me, with Rush Hair Enfield On the day before I started my new job last month (at the Tower of London!), I was invited down to try the new Rush Hair salon in Enfield. It had been around 3 years since I last had a haircut, because I’ve had a lot of bad experiences in the past with hairdressers who don’t know how to deal with curly hair, but as Rush Hair are very popular and well-respected…

Making a Terrarium at Grace & Thorn with Obby!

I made a terrarium last Tuesday! The super-cool craft workshop booking website Obby* asked if I wanted to try out a class of my choice to review, and after much deliberation, I picked out a ‘Terrarium Tuesday’ workshop at Grace & Thorn, a florist based in Hackney and Brick Lane. Obby have curated hundreds of awesome London classes, varying from cooking and mixology to arts and crafts, and even more uncommon workshops like Spoon Carving, Wax Sculpture, and an Experimental Chocolate Tasting Club. If you’re…

The DC Super Heroes ‘Art of the Brick’ Lego Exhibition!

Last week, my boyfriend and I were lucky enough to attend the launch of Nathan Sawaya’s DC Super Heroes ‘Art of the Brick’ Lego Exhibition on the London Southbank. It was absolutely AMAZING – I took a ton of photos, filmed a vlog, and got a little tipsy on the champagne, while we had a gander at the array of awesome lego sculptures. This is certainly not a small show – it’s actually the world’s largest lego exhibition inspired by…

Laser Hair Removal with New York Laser Clinic

Recently, I’ve been lucky enough to try out laser hair removal with the New York Laser Clinic! I went down to their Baker Street clinic two weeks ago for a consultation with a test patch, followed by the first treatment a few days later. I’ve only had the first treatment out of four, so I can’t say much about the lasting effects or regrowth yet – I’ll make sure to update after I’ve had all the treatments – but I…
