I'm not a selfie lover, mainly because I'm awful at taking them but, no matter what your opinions are, there's pretty much no getting away from selfies! An instantaneous form of "self-portraiture", selfies are now "an integral part of image-making in the twenty-first century". Selfies are art. Really, I hear you say? Don't worry, that's… Continue reading Selfie Love
Discovering new places – Shackfuyu, Soho
Shackfuyu is owned by Bone Daddies, the company responsible for Flesh & Buns - that was enough to sell the place to me! Contemporary Japanese inspired food at it's best in the heart of Soho, you should definitely give this place a shot. We went for the 'express menu' which was excellent value for money… Continue reading Discovering new places – Shackfuyu, Soho
Spring came early (plus Cutter & Squidge)!
Cutter & Squidge is a cute little cafe in Soho. Set up by two food obsessed sisters, creators of the 'Biskie', it's not to be missed! It's also good to see that the lovely cakes and biskies are (kind of) good for you i.e. the ingredients are mostly local and not overly sugary as some… Continue reading Spring came early (plus Cutter & Squidge)!

Notting Hill’s not so hidden gem – Farm Girl Cafe
Farm Girl is one of my favourite brunch places and that is saying something, particularly as London is full of amazing and unique spots for foodies!

Opa! Greek food at Suvlaki
Soho is my go to area for good restaurants. There are so many different options to choose from - Sri-Lankan, Italian, Indian, Japanese, Chinese, Mexican, Peruvian, you name it! I've been to a few Greek restaurants in the past but it's certainly not a cuisine that I know much about so, when I heard about… Continue reading Opa! Greek food at Suvlaki
Hop over to Hoppers for authentic Sri-Lankan food
Third time lucky. I finally did it. I got in to Hoppers! Rejoice. This restaurant is popular, so popular that if you don't get here by 5.45-6pm, there's probably no chance of you getting a table for at least another 3 hours. It's one of those restaurants that doesn't take reservations and only seats around… Continue reading Hop over to Hoppers for authentic Sri-Lankan food
Da Adolfo – magnifico!
If you do one thing when you're in Positano, make sure it's booking a table at Da Adolfo. The best Italian food I've had in Italy. Period. I'd heard a lot about this place whilst doing research on the Amalfi Coast. And boy did it live up to expectations. Don't you love it when that… Continue reading Da Adolfo – magnifico!
