  • Sacro Cuore – Southern Italian pizza

    Phoebe Ferris-Rotman
    28 Jul 2015 | 2:29 am
    Image by Phoebe Ferris-Rotman This is my favourite pizza place in Northwest London. If you’re looking for thin and crispy then look elsewhere. Sacro Cuore is home of the Southern Italian doughy chewy crust pizza. To start, share a couple of starters. Try the burrata – a ball of buffalo mozzarella mixed with cream on a bed of rocket – and the flavoursome melanzane parmigiana. Then move on to pizza – the Tartufata is to die for. Thinly shaved mushrooms, parmesan shavings, fresh basil and truffle oil make this a must. Massive stylised light bulbs hang from ceiling around…
  • Granary Square – Kings Cross redeveloped

    Claire Creighton
    24 Jul 2015 | 8:00 am
    Image by Claire Creighton Over the last 10 years the Kings Cross area has undergone a huge transformation. From industrial wasteland to chic converted Victorian warehouse spaces and shiny brand new offices, the best thing about the renovation so far has got to be Granary Square. An unexpected respite from the busy Kings Cross and St Pancras train stations, this cobbled square is a lovely little spot – especially when the sun is out. With exactly 1,080 choreographed fountains this is a great alternative to a playground if you have little children, they’ll have a great time running…
  • Paradise by way of Kensal Green – Decadent pub!

    Claire Creighton
    24 Jul 2015 | 8:00 am
    Image by Lynda Whyte With its name taken from a GK Chesterton poem and the line itself actually meant to be referring to the nearby cemetery, you will find yourself pleasantly surprised by this beautiful pub. The décor is flawless and everything seems to glitter and shine from the chandeliers to the polished red chesterfield sofas, its definitely not a back street boozer and oozes vintage charm and glamour. The clientele pulls itself from the well-groomed fashionable West Londoners and is usually a crowd of 20-30-something professionals. I haven’t had the pleasure of exploring all of…

    Image by New Cross House Having lived my whole life in North London, I loved moving to the complete opposite side of town – New Cross. It gave me an excuse to finally find some South East London hot spots! With a largely art student crowd in the local bars and pubs due to the nearby Goldsmiths university, New Cross house sets itself apart as a more mature watering hole. The pub was renovated about 3 years ago and is lovely inside with everything you expect from a gastro style pub. High ceilings, comfy booths and tasteful décor. There is even a tatty old piano in the corner for a good…

Once in Greenwich you’re spoilt for choice, from the newly restored Cutty Sark which is the last remaining boat of its kind to the Observatory at the top of the hill you’ll find a welcome resting spot in the Trafalgar Tavern.

  • 14 Things Every Londoner Knows Not To Do, Even In An Emergency

    She Loves London
    9 Jul 2015 | 8:13 am
    There are things you know when you’ve lived in London for a bit. Not just the obvious stuff like standing on the right, walking as fast as humanly possible at all times, or forming orderly queues everywhere (unless you’re at a bus stop or waiting for the tube; in which case please form a restless, passive aggressive crowd instead). What I’m talking about are the unspoken things that you just don’t do – not because there’s signs or announcements or years of etiquette telling you not to – but because as a Londoner, you simply know this city better…

  • This is What Happens When You Get a Night Bus in London

    She Loves London
    19 Jun 2015 | 9:29 am
    Let’s talk about night buses. For the uninitiated, night buses are pretty much how everyone under 35 gets home after 12am. It’s well documented that people over that age don’t leave the house after dark, or if they do, and by some huge critical error they miss the last tube, they’ll pretty much only travel in a black limousine or Uber XL and that’s just how it is. The truth is they’re missing out, because night buses are a London institution. A world unto themselves, everyone’s got a night bus story because they have the potential to be either…

    5 May 2015 | 3:22 am
    It’s physically impossible to be alone in London. Not “alone” as in oh, I feel so ALONE – haha! no! You’ll always have that. I mean you’ll never find yourself lacking in a defined amount of space or time that is amazingly, gloriously, joyously, incredibly, brilliantly lacking in other human beings. Because in London, other human beings are everywhere. So instead you have to make do with finding little areas of the city where it feels like you’re alone, and then spend a vast amount of time imagining that happy day when London resembles the…

    It is officially “park weather”. Park Weather is when London pretends to be summer for like a day. Park Weather means you leave the house even though it’s your official day of rest, only to find yourself sporadically whipped by gusts of wind that leave you shivering on the grass, wrapped in your portable tartan picnic blanket, looking longingly at the part of sky where the sun used to be because your bedroom window lied and it’s still absolutely bloody freezing. You know, Stupid Park Weather. Classic “park weather” All it takes is one hint of…

    Furthering my Chelsea explorations, minus the Barbour jackets and Hunters wellies and insatiable need to kill foxes, our next stop takes us to the Saatchi Gallery. Or, more importantly because food and wine, Gallery Mess restaurant at, well, the gallery. Situated on the rah rah King’s Road, we stopped by on a drizzly Tuesday evening to sample the menu and see if it’s worth you lot paying a visit. The reviews we read online before were mixed – some saying the food needed improving, others lamenting the woeful service. Great. The Gallery Mess review There are few entrances to the…

    As I mentioned, my new haunt means I’m always looking for fab new places to try – whether that’s dinner, drinks or just a bit of a dance. And being in west London, there are plenty of those. Mainly because I’m usually found east or somewhere in the city and to me, west is unchartered territory. After a blazingly warm week, the last thing I wanted was to be stuck indoors with air-con blowing freezing air over me. Enter The Terrace, part of Jumeirah’s Lowndes Hotel, who invited us to give their grub a go. The Terrace at Jumeirah Lowndes Hotel Walking from Knightsbridge, we…

No, this is an extension of our Celebrity Cruise series, and also a round up of a really fun blogger event we were delighted to have been invited to.

    After our disappointing jaunt around Malta came a day at sea before we docked at Catania. Now, those who know me know my roots are firmly ground in Sicily. Some of my most precious, treasured memories are wrapped up in holidays we had as a family, spent on the west side of Sicily in Calamonaci, my nonna’s home village which was founded in the 13th century by Arabs, who created a farm house on its slopes. Today, it’s a simple village famed for its almond, olives, grapes and honey. We never really stopped on the East coast, except to drive through so I was super excited to be…

    While I was drinking £200 cocktails on Celebrity Cruise a few weeks back, I missed an afternoon held on National Women in Engineering Day by British Gas, designed to raise awareness of women in STEM-based careers. Having worked on building sites myself, I was gutted to have missed hearing from women working in traditionally male dominated environments, but I couldn’t help following along as it happened. A few comments talked about feminism’s role, and how women are still oppressed within these industries leading to fewer applications. I feel there’s something worth talking…
