Discovered some really idyllic houses near the Tate Modern the other day, just crouched behind some yuppie blocks. Hoptons Gardens Almshouses was built in 1752 and houses Southwark residents over 60, on low incomes, here’s a picture of it in 1952. That something like this still exists in such a central part of London is [...]
Have spent most of the weekend making GIFs for a Buzzfeed post on packing, you can see my last one here, nothing more fun than setting up a tripod and making some silly moving pictures.
Went to the launch of Bella Freud’s perfume range at Harvey Nichols, a trio of pleasing scents that all feel [...]
I don’t know whether it’s having family in London and not having to trek home or just being lazy, but I always leave my Christmas shopping to the last minute. Can you believe I haven’t bought a thing? Yep. But then I have made a colour-coded spreadsheet of the food we’re eating, so, priorities. After [...]
Woah, imagine you spend your day celebrating your mum’s birthday and forget to blog? I’d never do that. What I did do, though, is swim in a harbour with Fiona, avoided the crowds on a weekday visit to Frank’s Bar (see above), put up a shelf (go femi-DIY!) and made a really good sour prawn [...]
A sneak peek of a lovely afternoon spent with Antoni Burakowski of Antoni and Alison at their Farringdon shop.
This week I also did the Dunwich Dynamo -which I am still recovering from- rocked my Myriam Girard (who I interviewed last year) lingerie slip with some Vans this weekend. I also dragged my ass to some [...]
Fashion GIFs (and GIFs in general) are one of my big loves, who can resist a sexy combination of old-school internet LOLs and fashwan? Fashion is often all about slickness or aspiration and can take itself quite seriously, but GIFify some fashion shots and it immediately humanises and contextualises it which makes fashion much more [...]
You know when you get a concerned phone call from your mum about the lack of posts on your blog that it’s been a while. I’ve just come through the other side of a crazy three-week stint packed of shoots, in-house work, writing assignments and weekends chocka with family visits and most excitingly… weddings!
This Sunday Sundries is a day late, but it comes packed with pics, a recipe and a gif. What more could you want? Housing benefit for the under 25s? Yeah me too. Oh well.
Anyway, my BFF was celebrating her 30th bday jerk-style with a massive barbecue with all the Carribean trimmings including mac & cheese, [...]
How better to show you what I wear to cycle across town that through the medium of the ~gif? Check out these beautiful works of art. If I’m getting changed at my destination I usually cycle in something that’s about two steps away from pjs, I figure if you look like an idiot then cars [...]
I love reading a good Chrimbo Gift Guide, even when it gets to the ridiculous ‘gifts for your eco-friendly cousin’ heights. I haven’t gone quite that far, this is more of a list of things that have caught my eye recently as well as favourite products I want to share. I’m quite picky when it [...]
