The Amalfi Post.

Ahhhhhhhhhh I’m sorry!   I got back from The Amalfi Coast almost a month ago and I still haven’t posted – I am a BAD blogger. To be honest, I’ve had probably the most manic and stressful month of my LIFE so I just haven’t been in the mindset to sit down and write. While…

A Long Weekend in BERLIN!

Hello all!   This post is embarrassingly late but fortunately I do have multiple excuses: firstly, my boyfriend actually wanted to make his debut on my blog and write this one himself, but, alas, it is weeks later and he still hasn’t got around to it – so Tom, you missed your chance! Secondly, job…

I’m Back With A Saturday in South Ken and Internship #4!

Hello all – it’s been a little while since I last posted, because everything has been busy busy BUSY. Two weeks ago today I handed in my dissertation, marking the end of my academic life and my time at university, and since I have finished another internship, been home to see my family, and last…

Easter Weekend in Durham

Last weekend I went with my boyfriend, and a couple of friends to a little airbnb cottage in Durham for Easter weekend. The boys had a wedding on Easter Monday, so me and my friend, as the wonderful girlfriends we are, decided to join them for the weekend. Our cottage was right in the middle…

An American in Paris and The Boat Race

Hello! It’s been a few weeks! Truth is, I haven’t been doing a lot other than uni work but now the sun’s out, spring has sprung and London is in full bloom and I’m happy and optimistic and UNI IS ALMOST OVER AND SUMMER IS ALMOST HERE!   Last weekend marked what I feel like…

Sketch, Mayfair.

This weekend we decided to treat ourselves…just, because. On Saturday we swapped bookshops for Portobello Road Market and brunch in Notting Hill; and on Sunday, after a day of running errands and submitting essays, we headed for dinner at sketch in Mayfair. I’ve been wanting to go to sketch pretty much since I moved to…

Sunday Strolls: The London Review Bookshop

Hello Hello!   This weekend I got back to London after a very relaxing week back at my parents house up North in the countryside, and it’s fairly safe to say I have returned to the big smoke feeling a lot more rejuvenated than I was a week ago – ah the country air! I had reading…

Fischer’s and Daunt Books.

Welcome to another Saturday meander around London with Tom and Billie… This time along Marylebone High Street. While I spent much of my youth (can I say that yet?) exploring a lot of West and Central London, nowadays as I live further east I rarely seem to make it out of my little corner of the…

An Evening at Duck and Waffle.

A couple of weeks ago it was one of the girls I live with’s 21st, so to celebrate in a typically overpriced fashion we went for dinner at Duck and Waffle. Which, if you haven’t heard of it, is the highest restaurant in London (above Sushi Samba on the 40th floor of 110 Bishopsgate). As expected, the…

A Little Saturday Find…

At the weekend, my boyfriend and I generally find ourselves aimlessly wandering around London – usually in search of a coffee shop, or a bookshop, or a mix of the two; and with refusal to ever go to a chain, (because when you live in a city as big and diverse as London, why would…

A Week in the Mountains – and Happy New Year!

It’s been four months since my last post, *hangs head in shame* and to be honest, I have a whole manner of excuses. I’ve lacked inspiration (i.e. not been on holiday – bar a weekend in Edinburgh which was beautiful and lovely but I didn’t take enough photos), had far too much uni work and…

The (Other?) City of Love – Verona.

My latest (and last – sigh) escape of the summer was to the beautiful city of Verona with my lovely boyfriend – it was also probably the holiday I’ve been most looking forward to. Tom and I had said all summer that we wanted to go away together, but didn’t until a few weeks ago…
