It was Tom's first day at work today so I decided to surprise him with dinner, champagne and Lego MiniFigures when he got home. I got to put our new kitchen to the test and baked a Rosemary Chocol...


The Dog House
I'm in my element in London at the moment because there are ghost signs everywhere. I even have my own department store down in Brixton. For lunch, we tucked into some black bagels from Waitrose.


Mum came through to Edinburgh today and we went out for lunch at her favourite place, Falko Konditormeister. We shared the Welsh Rarebit, so that we could save some room for cake. It was delicious...

One restaurant in Edinburgh that I can never get enough of is Bodega, a Mexican taqueria that fills it's tacos with super delicious and unique ingredients. It's a tiny restaurant on Leith Walk and...

The Anchoress
Burtons Biscuits smells amazing when we drive by and they're busy baking. There's a little portacabin around the back where you can buy bags of misshapen biscuits for £1. I couldn't spot anything...


Honeycomb & Co
A new lunch spot in Bruntsfield called Honeycomb & Co opened today, so we headed along to try it out. The window was filled with tempting looking cakes and there was a fridge full of amazing s...

We started our morning with breakfast at the Clerkenwell Grind. Tom had salmon and toast while I had an acai bowl and matcha latte. We then had a flat viewing at a converted school in Kennington....

Dalry Cemetery
We've lived next to Dalry Cemetery for over five years but never ventured in until today. I loved how overgrown it was with lots of ivy and sprawling trees. There were a row of mausoleums in the ...


We met up with Pamela this morning for a catch up and brunch at The Voyage Of Buck. I love their pancakes, but I'd ordered them last time so went for something different and tried the chia seed bo...


It was Phil's birthday today and Katie had made a reservation for all of us at Chaophraya but not told him that Tom & I would be joining them for dinner. Chaophraya is somewhere I've wanted to...


Kenny & Claire have added a extension onto their house with a new kitchen and invited us over for dinner so we could admire it. They cooked up an amazing meal, starting with filo tarts.


North Berwick
It was a gorgeous sunny day so we decided to put the roof down on Fig and drive along the coat to North Berwick. We went for lunch at the Lobster Shack, but weren't alone in that idea, as there wa...
