We stopped by Voodoo Ray’s at Boxpark for lunch this week. You know when you fancy pizza? But not Pizza Express or Domino’s pizza, delicious, freshly made ‘this slice is as big as my head’ pizza. Naturally, Voodoo Ray’s was a good shout. What I love most about Voodoo Ray’s is that you can actually see the food you’re getting which makes it a lot easier to choose. I’m so indecisive when it comes to lunch and there’s lots about this menu to love and be indecisive about. They have a meal deal too which means you can get pizza, salad […]
I visited the Victoria Miro gallery in Islington on a rainy Wednesday lunchtime. I had heard about the Yayoi Kusama installation and having been too young to see her work the last time it was exhibited in London, I thought I’d check it out. After queuing for 10-15 mins, I went upstairs to find 3 polished bronze pumpkins. They are large, medium and small sizes. If there were pumpkins in Goldilocks and the Three Bears, this is what they should’ve looked like. Then I queued again for roughly 10 mins for the mirrored room. ‘All the Eternal Love I Have for […]
Chris and I ventured out to Arabica at Borough Market on Monday evening. Unfortunately, we missed the lunch service which meant the menu changed slightly and we weren’t able to try the Lahmacun or Falafel – two of my favourite foods! It’s an excuse to go back soon. Keeping it meaty, I tried the Chicken & Pistachio Shish with Cardamom, honey and green chilli. The Chicken was beautifully cooked and slid right off the skewer. I loved the pistachio and cardamom with the chicken, it had the right amount of chilli so it wasn’t too spicy and the honey mellowed it out […]
I had seen photos of Highgate Cemetery on Instagram about a year ago and wanted to go ever since. I have a strange fascination with cemeteries. I was 11 the first time we visited my Grandad’s grave; rather than being freaked out, I thought “Dying can’t be that bad if you end up somewhere like this”. My Grandad happens to be buried in one of the ‘Magnificent Seven‘ (Highgate is one of the seven), so maybe that’s why. The cemetery is split into the East and West. The East Cemetery is home to some famous figures including Karl Marx and […]
For my birthday, my best friend took me to the Sanderson London for the Mad Hatter’s Afternoon Tea. Two things I love, afternoon tea and eating in cool hotels. The Sanderson is on Berner’s Street, a short walk from Tottenham Court Road tube station. The outside of the hotel doesn’t give much away, then you step inside this suave 50’s style space. It’s understated but luxuriously beautiful. We were greeted by a lovely hostess who sat us immediately in the courtyard. The courtyard garden has a nice vibe, it’s not at all stuffy and it’s pretty comfy with cushions and blankets. […]
This week, I’m obsessed with The Chainsmokers and their single ‘Don’t Let Me Down’ featuring Daya. It’s one of those songs that I can listen to anywhere; when I’m getting ready in the morning, on the tube, at the gym. I love it. Have a listen, get yo groove on.
