10 British Foods I Miss (And You Should Try)

•••
I haven't lived in the UK for more than a few months since 2011. That's a bit of a long time. While there are many things I don't miss - the way rain is drawn to that country like a magnet, the dire TV options on a Saturday night (bring back Blind Date and The Generation Game, I say!), and how last orders still seems to come before 11.30pm in most pubs - I d[...]

A Travelettes Guide to Knightsbridge

•••
The borough of London that is Knightsbridge is so insanely beautiful, rich and boutique that I felt it had to be a Travelettes Posh Guide, rather than the usual Travelettes Guide. The amount of unique boutiques, incredibly designed shop windows, delectable foods and houses that will have you yearning to be a millionaire is what gives Knightsbridge the nickna[...]

7 reasons to love Brighton

•••
The clocks have gone back, the days are getting darker and random celebrities are coming out of the woodwork to power up the Christmas lights across the nation. Yep, it’s official: Winter is coming. So when my girlfriends and I decided on a little, British seaside town for a much needed weekend away, we were aware it might be a tiny bit out of season. But th[...]

The Most Haunted Places in London

•••
The clocks have gone back an hour over here in Great Britain, just in time for creepy ole’ Halloween to creep in and help us celebrate our new-found dark evenings. This time of year guarantees to be spooky as autumn ushers in the darkness and the monsters come out to play - it sure is a fun time to be alive! (Sorry zombies.) Have you got your costume sort[...]

The photos of London that inspired a book

•••
I published my second book, London Eyes, this month and some of you are already reading it. It's hard to explain how that feels. The best description I can come up with is that it's like somebody going through a drawer full of your best underwear. While it feels very personal and invasive, you're also quite proud of your fine silk undies so you don't ac[...]

Bestival Festival: Glitter, Fancy Dress & Hugs

•••
Walking into Bestival, a four-day music festival on the Isle of Wight, for the first time felt reminiscent of walking into my very first big-girl sleepover. I remember the sheer excitement of having a whole night of lax parental supervision that would be filled with eating too much ice-cream, playing truth or dare and talking to that cute boy. It was this[...]

Laters London: A break-up letter

•••
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 wil[...]

Bath: fashion & history in South West England

•••
The southwest of England is famed for its rolling countryside, sunny beaches and deep history…. But you would never suspect the southwest to contain a city that is not only stuffed full of history, but also paramount to the fashion scene of England! In this corner of the UK, you can spy the mysterious Stonehenge; explore the stunning Cotswolds; catch great l[...]

Liberty: The Shopping Emporium of London

•••
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 worldl[...]

The Travelettes Guide to Liverpool

•••
"But... why?" was the most common reaction to us announcing that we were going to Liverpool for the weekend. Why? The honest answer is: because the plane tickets were the cheapest we could find for the long weekend. Before booking them, we only had a vague image of the most populated city of Northern England — and it was one that involved constant drizzle, a[...]
