I love honey. But I mean I really love honey. I love the ooze and the sticky and amazing goldeness of it…. and I love it spread thickly over hot buttered toast, while it drips off the sides and down my chin. But mostly, I love the story of honey. I love that bees MAKE..
I am not a knitter. I have never really knitted, apart from when I tried to make some kind of terrifyingly awful knitted Christmas decorations at primary school… which were really (really) bad. I don’t have the greatest track record when it comes to persevering with new skills or techniques – whether it’s a new..
Toot toot! Pancake day is on its way and when it comes to crepes and pancakes in London, I am proud to say that I am extremely well informed… it comes from years of experience and dedicated research… which is very hard work and I’m sure you all feel very sorry for me. This is a..

Here are eleven of my favourite hotspots to cool down. I’ll bring the ice cream. See you there xx The Men’s and Ladies’ Ponds..
Summer in London means the endless search for cool (as in temperature) shady and outdoor pretty spots to sip cocktails with friends on hazy weekends or for a cheeky tipple after work. There are gorgeous little terraces that pop up all over the city and one of my favourites this year is The Churchill Bar..
Oh hello. I’m home. Crete was wonderful. A completely stop-everything-do-nothing-eat-taramasalata-all-day-long holiday, with no work, no phones beeping and no laptop or camera in sight, (which is why all these pics are snapped on my phone). Taking these few days to stop and reset with my partner in crime and all things HAPPY, was exactly what..
