London

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 …

I have become a woman obsessed. All I need these days is my camera, my two legs, my favourite city in the world – London – and enough time before the sun goes down. I then seek out my target; the doors of London. That’s right, after a year away my time back in London hasn’t been spent visiting friends and family who’ve forgotten what I look like, it’s been …

Hey, Christmas might be over but a little bit of self-gifting never hurt anyone, right? Street markets may be a dime a dozen in a city as bustling and diverse as London but only a delicious few have the kind of far-reaching reputation that can hustle in hungry shoppers from all over the world.

Being a Brit living abroad one of the first questions I get asked is “are you from London?”. My face usually forms some unattractive snarl and I state very clearly that NO I am NOT from London and in fact I’ve only ever visited once for a day to get an emergency passport!

“Abandoning Little People on the Streets since 2006” is the project’s slogan, which is pretty mysterious and intriguing… but when you begin exploring this little blog, The Little People Project, the adorable art and photography that take the miniature figures around the world is captivating and you can soon lose a good couple of hours trawling through the archives at all the small and fantastic scenes!

Slinkachu’s work involves taking teeny …

Despite its grey skies, moody commuters and expensive drink prices, love does blossom in London. In fact it’s a wonderful place to fall in love. Believe me, I did it. A couple of times. But falling in love is just an added bonus really as one of London’s best features is that it’s a fun place to date seeing as it’s jam-packed with pubs, museums, galleries and restaurants.
However, here are …

As you probably have heard, the UK is well known for its dish fish and chips and there are hundred of restaurants, pubs and corner shops offering this. Finding the perfect fish and chips turned out to be quite a challenge, but after a while I luckily found my favourite place, a restaurant called ‘Poppies‘ situated in the East End, just around the corner from Brick Lane – a …

What do you associate with ship containers? Probably you think about storing, shipping and transporting goods, right? I had the same thought UNTIL I heard about the Boxpark Project – the first pop-up mall in the world, which is constructed by ship containers. Yes,  walk-in containers with fancy lifestyle brands, cosy café’s and snack bars, all sized ‘down’ to a small box. But it isn’t just a simple mall …

Italians are known for their fabulous shoes, French women for their elegance, and who can forget about the fantastic royal wedding dress of English princess Kate earlier this year? Different countries as well as time periods are associated with different styles and fashions. I can spend way too much time looking at my favorite streetstyle blogs from around the world or admiring the costumes of the actors in old movies, …
