London Bridge

In the past fortnight, I’ve cried for hundreds of strangers who have lost children and loved ones, including in a despicable attack at a funeral. Last night, things were closer to home. This time meant checking that friends were OK. It meant a sleepless night waiting for my boyfriend, working for the emergency services, to … Continue reading London Bridge

Sail Loft, Greenwich

I had been to the Sail Loft once before, because Greenwich is far and away the nicest part of London and, right on the river, this was a lovely place to go for a drink on a summer evening. Consequently, I was so excited to be invited along to Fuller’s Secret Supper, a showcase of … Continue reading Sail Loft, Greenwich

A little gem: Gem Bar, Soho

Recently my friend and I attended the relaunch of Gem Bar in Soho. Just off Beak Street, five minutes from Oxford Circus, it’s perfectly placed for a post-shopping drink. Before the event we were asked our favourite spirit and whether we preferred sweet or sour drinks, so we could have a bespoke cocktail waiting for … Continue reading A little gem: Gem Bar, Soho

Caribbean food and cocktails at Sugar Dumplin, Kingston

One of the things I love about being a blogger is having the opportunity to try places I might never have visited for myself. I have started eating a greater variety of food since moving to London (yesterday marked two years since moving – post on this soon!) but I had never been to a Caribbean … Continue reading Caribbean food and cocktails at Sugar Dumplin, Kingston

Photo diary: a weekend in London

TGI Friday: I thanked God it was my Friday on Thursday evening, with cocktails, Cajun chicken pasta and cookie dough cheesecake. Friday, Breakfast Club: we both opted for the All American breakfast at the Breakfast … Continue reading Photo diary: a weekend in London

Brasilian Barbecue at Cabana Brixton

I wrote about the recent blogger event at Cabana Islington; after that, it was time to try the restaurant in Brixton. Provided you turn the correct way when you come out of the station (which I didn’t - look out for the New Look and it’s down the next side street) the restaurant is only a … Continue reading Brasilian Barbecue at Cabana Brixton

Cabana Islington and the best sparkling wine in the southern hemisphere

I was recently invited to a blogger/press night for Cabana in Islington. Cabana is a Brazilian barbecue restaurant, with branches across London and England more generally – in fact, I’ll be writing about my night at the Brixton branch soon. The evening was based around a wine tasting with representatives from Brazilian wine group Miolo. The wine tasting … Continue reading Cabana Islington and the best sparkling wine in the southern hemisphere
