Instagram walking route – City of London

Instagram has got to be one of my favourite social media platforms. I love it.  I love the visual aspect of going to a new place and just throwing yourself into every landmark or that yummy street food you just have to share.

London is a huge city and when I first arrived I didn’t know where to start. To take the burden out of it, I’ve put together a sample Instagram walking route to guide you through London based on location. Continue reading

Oyster luge with Bowmore

Bowmore & oysters with Mussel Men – London Cocktail week

Written by: Russell (@russellofearth)

What’s an Oyster Luge?

Have you ever experienced an Oyster Luge? Actually, have you ever heard of an Oyster Luge? No? Ok, I’ll give you a clue then. It’s not a Winter Olympic event or even a new flaming shot at the hipster bar around the corner it’s something so much better than that.

There is, however, a condition (or a pre-requisite perhaps) before you can find out about an Oyster Luge, you must love whisky and you must love oysters. Continue reading

Review: Miss Behave’s Game Show

Never before have I attended a game show quite like this.  The hostess with the mostess is Miss Behave.  That’s her there, in the turban, the 4 inch stilettos and the gold sequined onesie. She commands the audience with a snappy quick wit and a “don’t ask, don’t get” policy.  I quickly realise, this is going to be fun…  Continue reading

Wonderush & #SayNoToFOMO

#SayNoToFOMO with Wonderush

Wonderush is a new take on a not-so-new subscription based concept.  Unlike being locked into a gym membership and running on a treadmill like a hamster on a wheel; Wonderush gives you the opportunity to vary your activity and your location.

Wonderush offers activities like zumba, Krav Maga, fashion photography, calligraphy and everything in between across several hundred locations across London. I was invited alongside a mix of bloggers to a sample day with just a smattering of some activities on offer in a #SayNoToFomo day.

Teeing up in Greenwich

Last week I was invited to join a bunch of bloggers to N1 Golf in North Greenwich for Monarch.

It’s been five long years since I picked up a golf club.  My brothers and I would often go out for a round or two.  Well, they mostly played and being the baby sister, I was often tasked with being the caddy or putting the ball onto the tee.   I suppose over the years I learnt a thing or two!  Continue reading

Similar to previous years pop up bars, masterclasses, events and tours are all on the agenda for the year’s week of hedonism.  Continue reading

Review: The Etienne Sisters – Stratford East Theatre Royal

Ché Walker’s latest production The Etienne Sisters takes to the stage at Stratford East Theatre Royal after experiencing much success with Klook’s Last Stand.

The Etienne Sisters is almost an emotional coming of age story. Three girls battle to find their feet and establish what it means to be a family.   Two sisters Tree (Toussaint-White) and Ree Etienne (Saayeng) mourn the death of their mother, only to find their experience is worsened by the arrival of their long-time estranged half-sister, Bo (Ava-Brown).
