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.
I haven’t had much time to read recently and I miss grabbing a book and losing myself in words dressed up in ink and dancing between the pages. This summer three of my favourite authors had new novels out and I know, I just know, that a nice reading hibernation period is just around the […]
One of my favorite spots in London has to be Neal’s Yard in Covent Garden. Its a little secluded courtyard accessible by a narrow alley with only a barrel on top of the entrance to guide you in.
Its Wednesday, the long weekend is here at last! To celebrate this occasion I’m going to post about one of my
One of my friends and the reason why I became a blogger, ex-blogger Yara, thought it was interesting to post a list of my favorite iPhone applications especially since she took my recommednations with the Sleep Cycle app and loved it. As 2012 is about to finish up, I’m looking back and

Continuing from Part One of the post (post), when you are finally done with the outdoors Harry Potter set, you walk into the makeup room where you see masks used in
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 just returned home from a trip to the UK and in my bags were a multitude of new and old Cadbury’s chocolate bars. There are three new Cadbury’s Dairy Milk flavors and they are all very
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
When I was in London last month TV ads about the new biscuit moments by Kellogg’s kept popping up on TV so I looked around for it and I found it in
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 […]
When my husband dragged me to the cinema to watch Brave I had pursed my lips and decided that I would be having a bad time. But I had to
