Stay at home, pretty bees, fly not hence!

I think it’s safe to say I am a little obsessed with bees. I love so many things about them, not least that they make honey. (Sidenote: honey, is my go-to cure-all-ails natural medicine. When the faintest hint of a cold starts to creep up, you can find me in the kitchen, hidden behind a … Continue reading Stay at home, pretty bees, fly not hence!

Travel// A trip to Bosnia, Montenegro and Croatia

We took a trip to the most beautiful places. Bosnia, Montenegro and Croatia. Starting in Mostar we wandered across the Stari Most, tried our first cevapi, and stayed in Muslibegovic House, a former Ottoman family home. We drove across to Sarajevo, visited the abandoned bobsled track from the winter Olympics held there and drank Bosnian … Continue reading Travel// A trip to Bosnia, Montenegro and Croatia

Lies estate agents tell

Generosities of the truth, from London estate agents… “Garden” A garden in central London is quite frankly irreconcilable with the rest of the country, and indeed PLANET’S, definition of a garden. A garden should be a pretty area filled with flowers and plants, a bird table and a shed, where you can invite friends round … Continue reading Lies estate agents tell

Being a Grown Up

When you’re little you think that being a ‘Grown Up’ and being ‘Little’ are two separate categories. Two completely distinct concepts. First you’re a child, then BAM you turn into a Grown Up, like a caterpillar turning into a butterfly – something that’s completely different. But actually you find yourself at quite an adult-sounding age … Continue reading Being a Grown Up

Diagnosis: Drama queen

This morning I woke up with a pain in my tooth. After poking the tooth a number of times to try and work out what the problem was, the pain got notably worse and the gums around the tooth started to swell up. An hour, and a considerable amount of tooth poking later, the pain … Continue reading Diagnosis: Drama queen

Ten things worse than Covent Garden Souper Green skinny soup

When I first tried a mouthful of this revolting green sludge I thought to myself “Well knock me down with a feather, this is the god-damn worst thing I have ever tasted. In fact, it’s probably one of the worst things that has ever happened to me.” However, after I’d finished the soup, washed it … Continue reading Ten things worse than Covent Garden Souper Green skinny soup

Things I love – Rockett St George

It’s just the best shop. It’s so cool, I wish I had enough money to completely furnish my flat with their furniture and accessories. The style is all vintage and industrial and grey (which is my favourite colour), and they sell things like wallpaper, rugs, desks,  and candle holders in the shape of duck feet. … Continue reading Things I love – Rockett St George

Mysteries I’d like to solve in 2014

1. Who is eating those little sachets of Silica Gel you get when you buy a new bag? I mean somebody must be doing it, because the only thing written on the sachet is DO NOT EAT in capital letters. There are loads of things that you shouldn’t eat, like pens, and tulips but none … Continue reading Mysteries I’d like to solve in 2014
