Twin Peaks Party
February 24th is Twin Peaks Day so we threw our own Twin Peaks party to celebrate. We'd recreated the Red Lodge on our dining table, complete with a Laura Palmer shrine, chevron table cloth painte...


Betty Blythe
Tom surprised me with this gorgeous marquee arrow necklace from Tatty Devine this morning. Lulu invited us to Betty Blythe's 10th birthday party in Earls Court this evening. Lulu had just opened ...


Cafe Van Gogh
We discovered the super pretty flower garden in Kennington Park today. We decided to try out our local vegan restaurant, Cafe Van Gogh for lunch today. The cafe is in a pretty brick building conn...


WC Wine and Charcuterie
Tom and I had a date night down in Clapham Common this evening, starting with dinner at Radio Alice. I was feeling a little sleepy, so I ordered the 'No Sleep Till Brooklyn' espresso martini which...


The Hardy Tree
There was a garden open day in Highgate this morning, so we took Mum up to see it while we waited at The Flask. We then headed down to Camden where we got a little lost on the hunt for the new Tem...


House of Minalima
We dropped Mum off at the National Portrait Gallery this morning and took Dad to explore Soho. It's Chinese New Year so Chinatown was filled with lanterns and dancing dragons. We started off at S...


Mum & Dad are visiting for the weekend, so while Tom was still at work, we popped out for lunch. We ended up at our local Buddhist centre, Jamyang which has a really pretty courtyard garden an...


Garlic & Shots
We haven't been to The Crobar in years and years and years, so we popped in for a drink after work today. I was so glad that they still serve root beer, so I could order my antiseptic marzipan coc...


Valentine's Day
It was Valentine's today and Tom & Bobbin surprised me with roses, chocolates and macarons in bed. I made pink rose and white chocolate pancakes for breakfast. Check out Pink Rose & White Cho...


Leake Street Tunnel
Duncan was staying at our place for the night, so Tom took a half day and we met up for a drink at The Tankard. Tom pointed out the old site of the London Necropolis railway station as we made our...


Radio Alice
I've noticed Doughnut Time popping up all over London, and drawn in by the pretty neon signs, was tempted to try one out. It was so hard to choose with options like the Notorious P-I-G topped with...


Goose Island Tap Room
Duncan was in London this evening, so we met up with him down in Balham. We ended up at the Goose Island Tap House, which felt like it was a long way from Chicago. As well as craft beer and root ...


Light-Up Tube Map
We've been on the hunt for a cool neon sign to put on the wall above our stairs for a while, when I came up with the idea of making a light-up tube map to go with all of Tom's London Underground si...


Cha Cha Roll
For this week's Date Night, we tried out Cha Cha Roll in Soho. Cha Cha Rolls are big fat sushi rolls, similar to Sushirittos, but in even more interesting flavours. I had the Green Wasabi Prawn w...


Abandoned Euston Tour
As one of Tom's Christmas presents, I'd booked a Hidden London tour of the disused tunnels underneath Euston station. We met outside the old red-brick station on Melton Street where we were given ...


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.


Dead Dolls House
We picked up some super cute unicorn cookies when we were in the Selfridges food court last night. They cut their prices just before closing which is a good thing to know when you're nearby.


Word On The Water
Even though we still had the flu, our cabin fever had kicked in, so we headed up to Kings Cross for a walk. We stopped off at VX to have some vegan junk food for lunch. All the food sounded amazi...


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...


Fiesta Siesta
Not wanting to let my flu get in the way of my crafting, I've been playing around with my 3D printer and made a sugar skull pot for my hair bobbles and decorated it with my 3D scribbler pen. It ma...


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...
