From bikes to tea sets: a Christmas gift guide

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 [...]

Recipe: Beetroot Gravadlax and Potato Blinis

Gravadlax is one of the few Christmas-appropriate dishes that feels really treaty and momentous but isn’t disgustingly fatty or bloaty.

Stuck for music? [...]

To get you in the right [...]

The Christmas Haul pt2

The second part of my childlike present excitement, I guess being vocal about the things you like and having the memory of a goldfish makes for really great surprises.

I got a vest top proclaiming my love for the Eerie Indiana star Omri Katz, if you’ve seen his latest work you’ll know that he’s more creepy [...]

I’m alive, I promise!

Wow, it’s really been so long I’ve forgotten the max pixel width of my images, pure blogger lulz. Anyway, onto to the neeeews. River Island totally know how to throw a party. Their press days are lively enough, so when they actually held a party tonight (in aid of their Ts of Trust tee shirt [...]
