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 …

There’s an episode of Sex and the City in which Carrie and Samantha decide to cross the USA by train for Carrie’s book signing in San Francisco. Before they leave they discuss at length how glamorous it will be, how indulgent and vintage inspired. They may even squeal a bit, I can’t remember. They arrive at Central Station in smart travel outfits, weighed down with hatboxes and matching Louis Vuitton …

What the hecky-peck is going on with the weather in the UK at the moment? The past few weeks have been face-meltingly hot. We can’t believe our luck. The grey skies and woolly jumpers are but a dim and drizzly memory – the distant ghost of summers past. We’re all rushing down to Ikea and spending our wages on brand spanking new, mirrored garden furniture (“look at it shine!”) and …

Oh Glastonbury. The iconic English music festival. The place to be in June where you can frolic in fields, listen to great music, see great fashion, party with friends (and strangers) and just generally have a fantastic knees-up in the old British countryside. You’ve probably been inundated with festival highlights and updates over the media waves as it is the place to be if you’re after a summer festival in …

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 …

As one of the few Travelettes that is permanently travelling (aka homeless with a suitcase) and the girl who wrote this post about being a world travelling digital nomad, it was somewhat of a shock to end up back in Britain for a few months for a few different reasons (not least, I’m an Auntie for the first time, yay!). It’s even stranger that my current base is a city …

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, …

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 …
