Gods Own Junkyard
We took Pamela for brunch at Palm Vaults up at Hackney Downs this morning. It was so hard to pick with so much tasty stuff on the menu, but I picked a lavender latte and Pamela had a pretty pale b...


Clown Museum
Pamela came down to visit for the weekend, so we headed out to explore East London, starting in Hoxton. We went for lunch at Arepa and Co, a Venezuelan restaurant on the canal at Haggerton.



Wild West KitNip Box
Bobbin's been signed up for a four month subscription to KitNip Box and her first box arrived this morning. She couldn't wait to get stuck in, and after lots of chewing and clawing at the box, we ...


Japan Centre
We headed into town after work today and grabbed dinner at the newly relocated Japan Centre. The new shop has a cafe, so you can eat in, and lots of the dishes had been reduced, so we picked up a ...


Beatrice Blue
Beatrice Blue illustrated this kick ass Crafterella for Superhero Sunday this week.


I was hoping to have a Burns Supper for my friends tonight but we're still too sick, so I celebrated by 3D printing a little Greyfriars Bobby instead. I've glued it to one of the jars in the bathr...


Tom ordered a custom Coolicon lampshade to go above our little table upstairs. I love the teal colour and it's got a vintage tube map printed on the inside, giving you something to look at when yo...


W Hotel
This weekend is Lumiere London, a light festival where dozens of areas of the city have been lit up with sculptures and installations. The first installation we spotted was at Trafalgar Square whi...


I got Tom some Wonderground placemats and coasters from LORIS&LIVIA for Christmas. They're made from the flooring of the Piccadilly and Victoria line tube trains and I love the design.


The Brits Are Coming
Tom got tickets to The Brits Are Coming at the ITV Studio this evening. It's the show where they announce the nominees for The Brit Awards and there were performances from lots of people I didn't k...


Duvet Day
Bobbin and I were both in need of a duvet day today. Luckily the new Routemaster blanket which we'd picked up in the London Transport Museum sale had arrived and it's super cosy. It was also the ...


Sometimes it feels like we live in a tube station, especially when Tom gets massive underground signs in the mail. This morning, he got a Waterloo station sign from the Northern Line and it's huge.


Rail House Cafe
I love wandering around London on Sunday mornings. It's usually really quiet, so it's ideal for exploring and taking photos. We were at Westminster this morning and wandered up to Victoria, an are...


Lego Diner
It may have taken three days to build but we finally completed the Lego Diner. I think this is my favourite set so far, with it's adorable diner booths, jukebox and waitress on roller skates.


Another exciting gift Tom had put in my stocking was this gorgeous pot of Welsh Rarebit from Fortnum & Mason. We tried some for lunch today and it was delicious. I'm going to keep the pot when...


The weather was really stormy today, so I decided to hide away in the kitchen and bake some banana bread. Check out Walnut & Dark Chocolate Banana Bread on Cut Out + Keep

George Michael Memorial Garden
Tom and I decided to head up north on the Northern Line today and explore Highgate. There were so many pretty houses and the view over London was amazing. We stopped for a drink at The Flask, a p...


Paddington Bear Afternoon Tea
It was Christmas Eve and it looked like we were the only people left in Kennington when we spotted Figgy all by himself in the carpark. Luckily we didn't have anywhere to go as I'd planned a Paddi...


John Lewis Roof Garden
Mum, Dad & Nana arrived in London today, as they'll be spending Christmas with us. Nana's been saying for a long time how much she'd love to see London again, so we were excited to take her on...


Christmas Party
Tonight was our Christmas Party for our friends, so I spent the day crafting and cooking in preparation. I started by making Christmas crackers, filled with bad jokes, Chocolate bitcoins and crack...


Hair By Fairy
Whoever got Tom as their Secret Santa at FreeAgent knows him so well, because he got a tea towel covered in cats in the mail this morning. I treated myself to a much needed haircut at Hairy By Fai...


Pines & Needles
The wreaths we made at the workshops yesterday look so pretty on our door. I dried some orange slices to add a little colour to my wreath and they smell amazing. Check out Dried Orange Slices on ...


West India Quay Festive Workshops
I had an awful headache when I woke up this morning but we had a full day of crafting ahead of us, so we jumped on the DLR and headed down to Canary Wharf, stopping off at Starbucks for some festiv...


Tom booked a table at the Draft House Chancery this evening for a mini ex-colleague work party with Faheem, Ola and Art. They do the tasty veggie burger like our local but also serve halloumi frie...


Ace Cafe
We were heading up to North London today, so had to drive Figgy right through the middle of Central London. It was actually fun seeing all the sights from the Fig and Tom didn't even find the driv...
