This week, we thought we would highlight some of our favourite independent coffee shops in London (and one delicious afternoon tea – in case you get fed up of coffee). Independent coffee shops have sprung up everywhere recently, but who’s complaining? When you need to get some work done, nothing beats an oatmilk latte, the […]


As this issue is all about the Love, we thought we would share a few of our guilty pleasures as well as the usual this week shenanigans… So this week I will be: Indulging in Mr F’s love of fried chicken at the excellent Chick ‘n Sours on Kingsland Road. Sticky disco wings, a delicious kung pao […]


This week I will be: Discovering the beautifully tailored dresses and separates from The Fold, a wonderful British clothing brand founded by the inspiring Polly McMaster after her MBA. This women’s workwear brand specialises in elegant collections for the professional woman as seen on Kate Middleton and Sam Cam. The Fold website even profiles the unique stories […]


This week I will be… Requesting a Kotatsu for Christmas. Now that the cold is truly settling in, there has been a flurry of media attention given to this Japanese invention which consists of a giant duvet complete with its own coffeetable and toasty heating device. You will never need to leave the house ever again! […]


This week I will be: playing Dumb Ways to Die. This game is absolutely hilarious and was borne out of an Australian public service announcement campaign launched by Metro Trains in Melbourne in 2012 to promote rail safety. The game features some really cute but accident-prone characters that you have to help survive imminent death […]


This week I will be: visiting Cutter & Squidge‘s new permanent (yes, permanent!) store at 20 Brewer Street in Soho. Not only does the new store offer more space and seating in Emily and Annabel’s inimitable relaxed and welcoming style, it also allows full visibility of the incredible biskie and cake selection which you can […]

This week I will be: feasting on some beautifully crafted Japanese tapas at Kirazu on Rupert Street, Soho. This blink-and-you’ll-miss-it hole in the wall restaurant has a lovely homely feel to it. Trendy in its simplicity, it more than lives up to its motto of using ‘traditional techniques to deliver healthy Japanese tapas’. Chef Yuya Kikuchi […]


This week I will be: Taking part in the Comment Awards judging day and helping to whittle down the shortlist. It was no easy feat with such a great quality of commentary and number of nominations (made even more intimidating by the fact that I managed to get all nominations printed on one sided A3 […]


This week I will be: trying desperately to find the Blue Top Ice Cream sandwich van. With a collaboration over summer with Gordon Ramsay’s Bread Street Kitchen and Time Out making ice cream sandwiches one of the things of the summer – how can we not. I understand they also take private bookings – wonder if […]


This week I will be: trying really hard to do as many classes as possible on my new ClassPass before heading off on holiday! As the people at ClassPass know – variety is the spice of life. For £79 per month, you get access to 100s of classes being run all over London without the […]
