Tomorrow is International Women’s Day and I will be taking part in the WOW Festival, celebrating women of the world. Recently TV shows like Girls (haven’t seen it, can’t comment!) have highlighted the cultural imbalance in feminism so it’s nice to see an event that takes a holistic approach to equality and freedom for women.

Today I trotted (well, cycled) over the bridge, taking a break from the Fashion Week goings on at Somerset House to make a visit to the Tate Modern and their Roy Lichtenstein exhibition preview. The Lichtenstein show is the Tate’s first since 1968 and worth a visit purely for the historical value of his work. [...]
Cycle lanes are iced over, the main roads are full of slush and it’s freezing! You don’t have to let a bit of snow put you off cycling though, as long as you’re careful you can carry on cycling in deepest winter.
The best tip is to keep to main roads, some of the suburban [...]
Does anyone else get tapas fear? That subconscious small plates worry that you won’t fill your belly, it’s a really concern for a total pig like me.
I had my food radar on red alert at Tramontana Brindisa, the latest tapas kitchen from the Borough-based Spanish food importer. I was quickly calmed by some super-strong [...]
Gail’s Kitchen opens to the public tomorrow, it’s a new venture from Gail’s Bakery, the people who bring you the posh baked goods, and I was lucky enough to be invited to a preview evening at Myhotel in Bloomsbury.

Some images from a recent shoot I did with Charlie Clift on Blackheath for Living South mag, I love the light in the first one. Charlie’s great fun to work with because he always gets good vibes going. If you look closely you can see I used some real grody 90s vintage peasant skirts in [...]
‘Where are you? Btw we’ve been upgraded to a SUITE’. One Aldwych recently offered me the chance to stay in their hotel, I’m fairly familiar with the place as it’s just opposite Somerset House so perfect for Fashion Week meetings/industry types-spotting. I invited my sister along as a late birthday treat and from her text [...]

Ice Cream Van Illustrated until Friday

This blog has been really food heavy of late, think I’m just taking advantage of the natural August fashion lull before The Weeks start and it’s all fashion fashion fashion.
The latest food buzz, round my way at least, has been the Begging Bowl restaurant which opened recently on Bellend(en) Road in the fancier part of [...]
Green and Blue is my local café, where I often go to eke out a coffee for a few hours and make the most of their wifi. So it was such a joy to be invited to one of their bloggers evenings without laptop and deadlines in tow.
Owner Kate is a real inspiration to [...]
