Three Ingredient Nutella Cookies

Ladies and gentlemen, I have the best recipe for you today. It can be ready in 20 minutes, it takes 3 ingredients and it’s basically idiot proof. I give you – three ingredient Nutella cookies. I’ll warn you in advance, you may hate me a bit as once you’ve made them once you’ll make them […]

Shoreditch Staycation

Sometimes you don’t need to go away to get away, sometimes a little staycation is just the ticket. A couple of weeks ago my friend Sophie and I did just that, taking ourselves off to Shoreditch for a weekend of R&R. We kicked things off with lunch at Som Saa, a cracking little Thai place […]

Windsurfing in Alaçati

When my mum was in her 20’s she was a windsurfing instructor in the south of France so I’ve always thought it’s fairly ridiculous that I’ve never really tried it. With this in mind and once we learnt that Alaçati was one of the best places in the world for windsurfing, we had to give […]

We’d known that in late October the weather wouldn’t be boiling and we wouldn’t be spending all our days lazing in the sun so after a quick coffee down by the water we hopped in the car and headed to Izmir, Turkey’s third largest city and home to a bustling market. What we hadn’t quite […]

Ephesus

One of the reasons we were drawn to Turkey was it’s history. Both self confessed classics geeks, we love a good ruin and handily, this region has one of the best. Just over an hour’s drive from Alaçati lie the ruins of Ephesus so after fuelling up with our usual breakfast feast we headed off. […]

Salty Seadogs

After our leisurely lunch in the sun we decided we were probably up for something a little more active so we headed for the water. We met Sara’s brother Rupert at their boat and hot footed it over to the Isle of Wight. Never one to miss out on the action, we obviously brought Mr […]

Limewood

I am of the opinion that country weekends are the best weekends. Throw in best friends and some bubbles? Well then you’re really on to a winner. As a teenager I was always desperate to get to London, fleeing the countryside at every opportunity for the bright lights of the big smoke. Things are a […]

Franzina Trattoria

If you’re living in London you’ve probably heard all about Padella, the hot young thing on the pasta scene. However, you may not have heard of Franzina Trattoria, which, in my opinion, is better. Tucked away inside an old shipping container on the top level of POP Brixton it would be easy to miss, but god, […]
