Interning 9 to 5, What a Way to Make a Living

  So, in case the title wasn’t obvious enough, I’m interning at the moment, at a PR agency in London Bridge (not the actual bridge, the area around it). I’m actually really enjoying it, and as someone who considers remembering a password work, it is a big deal for me to say that I’m enjoying work….

London Design Festival 2014 | 100% Design

20th September Finishing up the London Design Festival I went to 100% Design at Earl’s Court Exhibition Centre. This was another case of trying to go somewhere where I could see loads of things at the same time. I read about 100% Design in the LDF guide and thought that it would probably be good to…

Mini Review | Ask Italian

19th September On Friday night, after a really long week of doing a lot of things – just getting back from France and running around the Design Festival – a break was seriously in order. So a table was booked at Ask Italian and I had a really good time. The atmosphere inside was actually…

London Design Festival 2014 | Trafalgar Square

19th Spetember “A Place Called Home” in Trafalgar Square, by Jasper Morrison, PATTERNITY, Studioilse and Raw Edges. Sponsored by Airbnb, four houses were created in Trafalgar Square, each artist or group having been asked to visualise a piece that they felt conveyed ‘home’. It was so interesting to see the different concepts that were put…

London Design Festival 2014 | V&A

19th September Guess who forgot about the London Design Festival until 3 days before it finished? After I got back from France and spent an entire day blogging, I realised that I had missed almost all of the London Design Festival, which kind of sucked. I went up on the Friday and Saturday, but the…

Emptying My Bag Out: France Edition

I found all of these littering the bottom of my handbag, and thought that I’d share some of the many cards from places we visited in France (clockwise from top left): 1. Le Dome – Restaurant we went to on our full day in Dijon for lunch. Pretty good – I had their mussles and frites,…

Dijon Part 3 | Getting Lost, Alesia and Grill & Cow

15th September Carrying on from yesterday’s post, we got into the car and headed out of Dijon for a little road trip. It turned out that just the drive itself was beautiful, we didn’t even need to go anywhere in particular. I took about 500 photo’s through the car window, and so little of them…

Dijon Part 2 | Churches, Flying Buttresses and Lunch

  15th September This was one very long post but I decided to break it up again into two because it was way too long. So you have more to read about France now, and abotu five million more pictures to look through – lucky you! The next morning we took a walk to a…

Dijon Part 1 | Route des Grands Crus, Owls and Pizza

14th September   I had to cut down the number of pictures for this post by more than half, and there’s still a lot, so I’m sort of of sorry in advance – but not really because Dijon was so beautiful that I had to share it all.      On the road to Dijon!…

Lyon Part 2 | Art, Food Markets and Fish

14th September I’ve divided my Sunday in France into two parts, Lyon Part 2 and Dijon Part 1, because there are just too many pictures and too many things to be said in one post. Lyon in the morning was even prettier than it had looked the night before. We checked out of the hotel…

Lyon Part 1| Bonjour Internet

13th September – Bonjour Internet, did I mention that I went to France? The Saturday that we went to France was not the best of days to be honest, to begin with anyway. We had to leave the apartment early because of a mix up with another booking, so we had a whole day ahead…

Selfridges, Cupcake Milkshakes, Hamleys and Empty Trains

12th September Another case of please forgive me for the fuzzy crap photos from my phone. I had never been to Selfridges before. Now that I have, the previous statement makes me wonder what the hell I have been doing in London for the last two months (yes, it has been two whole months now!). I’ve…

The Pebbles Project

10th September – (credit) I told you before that I got the opportunity to go to a Pebbles Project party. I have a little place in my heart for Pebbles, because while working at Brampton Wine Studio  this year we got involved in raising money f0r Pebbles at the Stellenbosch Wine Festival, but then continued to…

National History Museum, Beautiful South and Pebbles

Wednesday 10th September On Wednesday, in Earl’s Court, I took a walk up to the museums again. The V&A, Science Museum and the Natural History museum are all next to each other and I remember when I was little my dad, my sister and I used to take trips up to London to go to…

Emptying My Bag From London

7th -12th September Radio Silence over, I’m back with a ton of posts about everything that has happened since I last updated. I was in London with my dad for a week, and it was a busy one. I’ve already shared some of it, but I didn’t take too many pictures of most days because…

Borough Market, Jamie’s Italian and STOMP

After a meeting with my dad, we went into London again. I am still sick, yay, so after dosing myself up on more medicine from the highly unhelpful pharmacy people at Boots, we got onto a train and went to Borough Market. Onion Bhaji’s! It is such a cute market setting… Oh, there’s the Shard…

Graffiti and Street Art

I love Graffiti, and street art and grime and cities. For some reason if I’m out walking my eyes are drawn to the spiders web in a window, or the rust on a lamp post. London is chock-a-block with street art and stickers and graffiti. These a few of my favourite ones that I have…

Chicken, Chinatown and Cocktails

So, as I said before (here) I’m staying with my dad in London for the week. More specifically we’re staying in a little apartment in Earl’s Court and it’s super close to the tube station so on the Sunday that we arrived at the apartment we went into London for the day. Here’s another picture filled…

Grey Skies and Graffiti

5th September – Friday Another train, another trip up to London. I went up to London again last Friday, even though the skies were grey and uninspiring. I took the Tube to Blackfriars Station and walked across the Millennium Bridge to the Tate Modern. I’m still a bit ill from Reading Festival (I know, it’s kind…

Doctor Who and Red Wine

(source) My grandparents were at a wedding on Saturday and so I had the house to myself for the day. It was nice to spend some time just for me, and achieve absolutely nothing all day. Sometimes you need to take a Do Nothing Day and just paint your nails and watch rubbish TV in your…

Living Out Of Cases, Packing Up and Taking Off

Yes, I did quote a One Direction song in the title, and I have no shame so hate on haters. It feels like I just got back to my grandparents house, and now I’m leaving again. My dad is in London for a week on business and I’m going to stay with him for the…

Reading Festival 2014 |Part Three

21st – 24th August 2014 Sunday – The last day! I always hate the last day of things, because they always seem so far away until they creep up on you and find yourself right in the middle of it. Every minute that ticks by feels wasted unless you’re doing something. Walking home for a quick…

Reading Festival 2014 | Part Two

21st – 24th August 2014 Saturday – I’ve decided to do a post focussed on each day of the Festival, so this is Day Two, Saturday. This was the big one, the big headliner – the Arctic Monkeys. I was so excited for them the entire day, not helped by the fact that every second…

Reading Festival 2014 | Part One

21st – 24th August 2014 I am just going to apologise in advance for my own really quite honestly crap photos of Festival, because I did not want to take my camera with, so they’re all taken on a BlackBerry Curve from about 400 BC so apologies. I have supplemented them with photos from more…

Crackington Haven | Cornwall

17th – 20th August – Crackington Haven, Cornwall I know that I said it was in Devon in a previous post, but I had misunderstood the information, I went with my friend to her family gathering in Devon before going onto to Cornwall the next day. Just to clear that up. Crackington Haven turned out…

Back In The Land of The Internet

As so many blog posts all over the wide world of the web start, I apologise for not updating in about two weeks. I am so sorry. Now that’s out of the way, I can tell why I haven’t been able to update as reguarly as I like to. As you know, I was in…
