Tom got me a gorgeous Vivienne Westwood necklace for Christmas today.

We were invited along to a test screening of James McAvoy's new film The Last Station tonight. It really wasn't very good and when we tried to escape early, so that we wouldn't have to go to the d...
Plan 9
I took Tom to Plan 9 today, a cool little cafe I discovered a couple of weeks back with my parents. The sandwiches are so good and they serve A&W root beer!

Cracking Crème Brûlée With A Spoon

In Paris
After an early start, we caught the Eurostar to Paris. It was so fast that I hardly even noticed when we were in the Channel Tunnel.


Little Venice
While my dad went off to explore the British Library today, my mum and I decided to walk down to Little Venice. My mum's a librarian and when she's on holiday she always likes to pop in to other l...

This evening I made a Devil Horn Fascinator so that I could get a head start on my Halloween crafting. I made a pair of clay devil horns, which I covered in red glitter and then attached them to a ...
Paper Dolls In Paper Dresses
We went down to Canary Wharf today. It was strangely eery there with the falling stock market and job cuts. I like walking between the big buildings, it makes me feel like I’m in The Borrowers.
I was recently interviewed for Lola’s Land. I’m going to be their new resident DIY diva, so keep an eye out for my projects on there! I've been implementing some more of the techniques from Gettin...
Warwick Avenue
We walked past Duffy at Maida Vale tube today... I wish it had been at Warrick Avenue so that we could have sang at her.
