Westfield Stratford City isn’t new per-say, Europe’s largest shopping mall was opened in September 2011, but I’ve never had the chance to actually make the trip before. When I finally did taking the Jubilee line, I realised it is indeed very huge, complete with a Holiday Inn hotel next door.

Last year I was walking in Carnaby Street during Xmas day when I saw the “Lomography Gallery Store” which intrigued me and I wrote about the lomographic effect being a growing trend (post). I didn’t have the chance to actually visit the store again until last month when
Some might argue that Monmouth Coffee sells the best coffee in London but I believe that’s hard to establish given that people’s tastes differ all the time. What I’m sure of is that you cannot walk through the
I’ve always had a thing for greeting cards and stationary stores. One of my sheer joys when going abroad is spending an hour or so in stationary stores, looking at different quirky greeting cards and gift wrapping supplies. I always stock up when
I’ve been away from my beloved blog so long I feel like I’m about to dust cobwebs off the wordpress panel. I am putting together this post now while watching Halloween III and with the rain pounding on the window. The mood couldn’t have been any creepier I suppose so
If you are going to be in London before the 30th of September then you are in for a treat, for Selfridges department store had transformed its roof into the “Daylesford Organic Cafe & Golf”. A perfect place to hideout
Whenever I’m abroad specifically in London I try to purchase a few magnets bearing the signs of my favorite streets. I hang them everywhere, my fridge, my work cubicle cupboards, my home office. What I enjoy most is the little reality break they provide for me. I’d be immersed in my work and suddenly I’d […]
That’s why the blog was neglected, I was in my favorite city in the world for two weeks. I thought I’d share some of my favorite summer 2012 London trip pictures during which the

Gelupo, a newly opened gelateria in London, is hailed as the place that hosts the best gelato in town. Gelato, best, and London meant that I must try it for myself and
On instagram I have posted a picture of a new type of m&ms I had gotten: Raspberry and Dark Chocolate m&ms! A lot have asked about it. It came from one of my favorite London shops: Cyber Candy.

There is a brand new mall in London called One New Change! It is more of a small shopping arcade than a mall and not as big as Westfield. But it is worth visiting for three things…
I know that most Kuwaitis adore Amaya and consider it the best Indian restaurant ever. However I am not a big fan of the are plus their dress code is smart casual. So after a long day of shopping or walking around what is better than stopping at one of Amaya’s sister restaurants from the […]
Tucked away in the alleys of seven dials in Covent Garden sits a tiny yet highly rated gelateria. If you explore the area of Seven Dials you will find a Crocs store on Short Gardens street. If you stand by the sign below, look to your right and
