If there’s one thing I’ve learnt this year, it’s the power of internet friends; bloggers. I have met some seriously amazing people via this little space on the internet who I used to stalk and talk to online, and I now meet in real life. People don’t really get it: ‘How did you all meet?’ ‘What do you mean you met on the internet?’ said the drag queen on Saturday night – more on this...

After reading about it for a couple of weeks now, at the weekend Lucy, Jack, Nadia & I decided that it was time to book in a visit to the British Museum of Food. A pop-up by experimental creatives Bompas & Parr, the BMoF is currently housed on a corner of Borough Market alongside the duo’s other project of the moment; Alcoholic Architecture. With no idea what to expect, we entered the museum with open...

Sorry to tease you with this as it happened back in May, but after a week of English-Summer weather, I needed to bring some sunshine to the blog! Jack, Lucy, Sophie(my sister) and I popped into the House of Peroni; a month-long celebration of the very best of Italian culture brought to London. A pop-up in the Old Truman Brewery on Brick Lane, it was the perfect space to escape the hustle and bustle of East...

The v word. A commercial ‘holiday’ created to fill the gap between Christmas and Easter or an excuse to eat your body weight in chocolate. Maybe you’re an anti-valentines single or loved up in a relationship. Personally I thought Valentines Day seemed kinda hard to escape this year – anyone else agree? Every shop was pushing something red, something heart-shaped or fifty shades of something. Even on Friday 13th, I arrived at work to find this heart on...

I’m quite ashamed to admit that until I went to University in 2010 I had never eaten a Mexican dish. I know, what a sheltered life I lived, but now Mexican is part of my weekly diet: burritos, fajitas, enchiladas, quesadillas, nachos, spicy rice – I love them all! So when I visited Kinetica Art Fair and Moniker Art Fair at the Old Truman Brewery last month I was excited to find DF Mexico, a pop-up...

Last Wednesday I received an email from Byron – I signed up to their newsletter for updates about new burgers etc. But this wasn’t about the latest menu addition – it was an invite to eat for free at the opening weekend of the new Byron on the Strand! Free Byron burgers? I’m there! So I booked a table for the Saturday and 2 minutes later it was sold out! (Hoarding design by Charlie Smith) The...

So, here’s a bit of a break from Burgers(sorrynotsorry) – Poppies of Spitalfields is British personified: Fish and Chips. I had heard a couple of people mention Poppies and when Nadia and I found ourselves on the streets of Shoreditch and hungry (not homeless!) we decided to head to Poppies. ‘Best Fish ‘n’ Chips discovered in London town’ – a big claim to make, so would Poppies live up to it? Well, they have been named...

So after the success of the first Food & Fonts post I was hungry for some more tasty typography (and food). After Pick Me Up, Alex, Emma, Jack and I had worked up an appetite and headed to Soho where we was drawn by the BBQ smell of Bodean’s: I’d never been before, but had read good things around the blogosphere and how can you resist anywhere with a neon sign and pig shaped door...

OSC, Reading? Let me explain… Oakford Social Club, Reading. As many of you will know, last week/weekend was Reading Festival 2010! I have been to Reading Festival for 3 consecutive years now, but this year I did wonder if I was at Glastonbury instead – the mud was pretty bad! Apparently I should have expected it to be muddy, ‘it’s all part of a festival’, but 2008 and 2009 were dry, sunny and lovely! Nevermind!...
