Last Tuesday I was lucky enough to get invited down to Giraffe World Kitchen in Spitalfields, which has recently been revamped. I’ve not been to Giraffe before, so I was excited to try out their menu, especially the desserts! As you can see from my pictures, it’s a lovely and vibrant place, with a totally friendly vibe! The music was good, and the staff were wonderful. Cocktails I’m a big cocktail fan, so I enjoyed trying out a few from…

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 –…

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…

Positive Changes I’m Making Hi! I had my first final year exam yesterday, and it went pretty well, so hopefully all the studying has paid off. I had a wander around the V&A Museum afterwards with my Grandad and his brother, which was a nice stress-free way to spend the afternoon. If you’ve not been, it’s definitely worth a visit – the Renaissance sculptures and the fashion exhibition are wonderful. I’m back to work tomorrow, with two more exams to…

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…

My Instagram was Hacked. I’ve had a month away from blogging for various reasons (tl;dr: i’ve been really busy), and this was not the blog post I’d had planned for my return. I’ve got a blog post all written up and ready about what I’ve been up to this month and my new hair thanks to Rush Hair Enfield, but that’ll have to wait until tomorrow, because this is pretty damn important. My Instagram was hacked. I don’t know how,…

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…

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…

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…
