London

Leaving London and getting on yet another long haul flight with all my belongings (a grand total of two suitcases, ehem) feels a bit like ending a long, exhausting and beautiful relationship. Ever wondered how you can feel that way about a city? Read my break-up letter to Europe’s most gorgeous pearl. (I dropped a few cool location tips for you which will hopefully stop both of us from bursting …

Ladies, I have serious business to discuss with you. An issue so important I’m sure many of you have spent hours and days thinking and worrying about it, I am talking about: our hair. Should we wear it long? Short? Curly? Blonde? Pink? Go with fashion or stick to the same do we’ve had since we were teenagers? The question is not to be taken lightly as hair changes people. …

When it comes to large, established department stores, Harrods seems to always be the tourist fixation when visiting London… but think of Liberty when you want to get less mainstream and more eclectic. Sure, both of these places are incredulously expensive but sometimes, when a girl has to window shop, she might as well do it at the most exclusive and worldly superstore of Britain’s most fabulous city!

Nestled comfortably somewhere between …

They say the best things in life are free. And I can confirm that they generally are. Take, for instance, hugs, big killer whales called Willy and my advice, dear Travelettes. But what about in London? Can there really be such a thing as a free lunch in the city economics brainiacs have named and shamed as one of the most expensive cities in Europe? Well, actually, yes there is. …

It’s no big shocker to proclaim that London is amongst the world’s coolest cities. It’s vibrant, always happening and, apart from some hangups involving expensive rent, a pretty great place to live. I can confirm that first hand, as London was once my home and every time I go back to visit I am reminded of why people like it as much as they do. London is a highly diverse …

There is always something happening in Camden. One of my hands down, favorite locations to shop, wander and people-watch; the centre of the alternative fashion scene is a wonderland of fascinating sights, smells and sounds. Hop on the underground’s northern line to step through the looking glass into one of London’s most diverse shopping locations and pick up a little bit of that Camden cool…

Shops:
Just strolling along the main high …

You never forget your first time. Your first time on the London Underground.
Rude at rush hour, rowdy at night, reliably grumpy in the morning, using “The Tube” to navigate your way across London as either a resident or a visitor is a rite of passage.
It’s one of the things I love to miss now that I no longer live in London. Of course, when I actually lived in London, I …

North, south, east and west… No Dorothy, we’re not in Kansas anymore, we’re in London, the city that currently holds the accolade Style Capital of the World; and that gingham smock just ain’t going to cut it. It’s often struck me how our nation’s capital seems to be split into four distinct districts, all with their own fabulous shopping, identity and style. Yet with so much on offer, it can …

After having lived  in London for three years I have learnt a lot about the city and the difference between visiting a place as opposed to actually living there for the long haul. When I first arrived in the British capitol I was full of expectations, some of which turned out the way I planned, others not so much. And then a whole lot more stuff in between I never …

Don’t be tempted to think that you’ve seen it all when it comes to capital cities like London. I’ve only ever spent short stays there, but each time I fall a little bit more in love with this city of Cockneys, cabbies, bagels, drizzle and best friends. Whether it’s cocktails or culture you’re after, here’s a top 5 that will guarantee a memorable time spent in London town.

For New Years, …
