Cafe Culture

It's no secret that I love a good cafe. Somewhere that knows how to do a good brunch - smashed avocado and eggs, or bacon & pancakes, the smell of coffee wafting by as you relax in the sunshine, banishing your hangover from memory.. 

Lately I've stumbled across so many great looking places, it's hard to keep track of them to remember to go back and try them out! The latest two have been Timberyard and Trade-Made, both in east London - and both excellent. Definitely worth checking out!

London Living: Contrast

I love the stark contrast between London neighbourhoods Shoreditch (aka hipster-ville) and The City, London's financial district. The often decrepit bricks & mortar vs shiny new glass & steel - a tension that is almost poetic.

Burgundy

Burgundy is my new favourite colour. Preparing to be obsessed this fall... :)

Edinburgh

Edinburgh is such a pretty place - so green and lush, and with spectacular views from Calton Hill.

With its hidden narrow passages, cobbled alleys, and huge castle overlooking the city, it feels just like a magical, medieval movie set come to life :)

The Food Files: National Burger Day

Wednesday was National Burger Day - and what a day it was. For those (like me) who go ga-ga for a delectable burger, Burger Fest is the best day ever. Held at a pop-up in the Battersea Power Station - an amazing venue - it was a beautiful night of trying delicious burgers from some of London's top burger joints, enjoying good music, and a cheeky pint or two of some stellar lagar. A great way to spend hump day! 

Here are some photos taken using my iPhone's new fish-eye lens (a tad obsessed... :P ) - and you can watch the video from last year featuring a (cringy) appearance from yours truly, here.  If you're in London and haven't been yet, make sure to keep an eye out for tickets next time around - they sell out fast!

The Fringe

Last weekend I shot up to Edinburgh to catch the end of the incredible Fringe Festival, and to make the most of the UK's last bank holiday weekend for the year. 

For any theatre/music/comedy/cabaret lovers, the Fringe is such a must do - there are hundreds of shows on every day and the city is completely abuzz with endless activity and energy! From the street performers and free gigs on temporary stages propped up around every corner, to the huge, grand theaters and music halls dotted around the city, there's so much to choose from it's almost impossible to work out where to spend your time!

I was so impressed by the performances I saw, it's made me greedy for more already! Looking to book more shows in London soon... :)
