Are you visiting London for the first time? You’re going to have a wonderful time, but to help make sure it’s perfect, here’s some advice to help you plan your accommodation, transport and just how to get around the city, so you don’t have to lose time trying to work this out once you get here! Accommodation Wherever I travel, […]

Any other animal lovers like me?! Try something new and completely different in London, in the form of ‘Wild Life Drawing’! A great idea that has come about this year are these fun art classes with a live muse – of the furry (or sometimes scaled) variety. The art classes have been set up to raise awareness about conservation and […]

Another month has passed and the cinemas have seen some great films coming to their screens. I’ve been to see a variety of offerings – from period films, to comedy, to action and the stand out films for me were ‘Ghostbusters’ and ‘BFG’! But find out what else is on offer and what might tickle your fancy below… Now You […]

Secret Cinema have hit the headlines several times over the past few years for their impressive show-stopper events and last weekend I was lucky enough to go to the Dirty Dancing one in East London – so I can report back what it’s all about (well not what it’s all about as then it won’t be secret!). Having been founded […]

So, a month’s passed since my first ‘Marathon Diaries‘ blog and I’ve been very busy on my fitness journey! Doing a marathon is very different to doing a half marathon and my biggest challenge is that I need to get my body in a stronger place before I starting hitting it with miles of running again. So, here are the changes […]

So, apparently summer has begun and in-between the rain showers, we’ve seen enough sunshine to manage to get a sunburn (?!) but if you’re in London this summer, what should you be ticking off the list? Not been to the theatre in too long? Why not try something a little different with ‘Kinky Boots‘? The witty, colourful and loud musical is great fun […]

So, if you’re anything like me, you love nothing more than a trip to the cinema for a nice evening out. It’s the chance to watch a film without the interruption of phones and general life and, at my local, Genesis in Whitechapel, they even have a swanky screen with footstools, sofas, an in-cinema bar and blankets! So, before you […]

I was so so excited yesterday to find out that I had been given a Gold London Marathon 2017 place with Cats Protection! After watching the run for the first time in April this year, I was overwhelmed with the atmosphere, the amount of charity awareness that happens on this day and just how important this achievement is for those […]

The sun is out, it’s starting to feel like it’s almost summer and what better way to enjoy it than with a refreshing G&T in hand? Aside from a visit to the ‘Gin Palace’ in Dublin (I wholly recommend it!) and a tour of the East London Liquor Company, I’ve never really broadened my gin horizons, so when I heard […]

As a huge Harry Potter buff – like many of you guys – I have watched the films ten times over, visited the studios, even attended a ‘Harry Potter walking tour’ of London – I am potty about anything Potter (see what I did there?!). So when I saw on Twitter that a new exhibition was opening (right around the […]
