I heart Camden Town

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 u[...]

Why We Love @MissUnderground

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 actua[...]

How to get the London look

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.

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.

Say hello to Portobello!

Hey, Christmas might be over but a little bit of self-gifting never hurt anyone, right?

Say hello to Portobello! This market is more of an amalgamation o[...]

London from the rooftops

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! I suppose I've never really felt connected to my capital city - maybe its because of my[...]
