Clapham South Deep Level Shelters
There was snow in the air as we made our way to Clapham South to meet up with the Hidden London team for a tour of the deep level air raid shelter. There are eight deep-level air-raid shelters bui...


W Hotel
This weekend is Lumiere London, a light festival where dozens of areas of the city have been lit up with sculptures and installations. The first installation we spotted was at Trafalgar Square whi...


Essex Road
Tom's picked himself up another London Underground sign for the house, this time a 1930's sign from Essex Road which used to be on the underground until it was transferred to British Rail in the 70...


Le Shuttle
When we were in Bristol, years and years ago, Tom spotted this Le Shuttle train teapot in the window of a closed charity shop and Jenny tried to get it for him the next day but it had already sold.


We met up with Jenny & Rin for dinner in St Paul's this evening. Yo Sushi! have a big sale for January, so we feasted on as much sushi as we could eat. We tried some of the new espresso mochi...


I got Tom some Wonderground placemats and coasters from LORIS&LIVIA for Christmas. They're made from the flooring of the Piccadilly and Victoria line tube trains and I love the design.


Burnt Toast Cafe
We went for breakfast at the Burnt Toast Cafe in Brixton Village this morning. The cafe is tiny with just a few seats outside, but the queue was long, so we knew it would be good. There were toas...


The Brits Are Coming
Tom got tickets to The Brits Are Coming at the ITV Studio this evening. It's the show where they announce the nominees for The Brit Awards and there were performances from lots of people I didn't k...


Sir Crafty
I was interviewed about crafting and Cut Out + Keep for Sir Crafty and you can read the whole interview here.


Duvet Day
Bobbin and I were both in need of a duvet day today. Luckily the new Routemaster blanket which we'd picked up in the London Transport Museum sale had arrived and it's super cosy. It was also the ...


Embossing Hut
We took my new satchel to be embossed at The Cambridge Satchel Company shop in Covent Garden this evening. They've got an Embossing Hut downstairs in the store and you can see examples of all the ...


Sometimes it feels like we live in a tube station, especially when Tom gets massive underground signs in the mail. This morning, he got a Waterloo station sign from the Northern Line and it's huge.


Rail House Cafe
I love wandering around London on Sunday mornings. It's usually really quiet, so it's ideal for exploring and taking photos. We were at Westminster this morning and wandered up to Victoria, an are...


Lego Diner
It may have taken three days to build but we finally completed the Lego Diner. I think this is my favourite set so far, with it's adorable diner booths, jukebox and waitress on roller skates.


Another exciting gift Tom had put in my stocking was this gorgeous pot of Welsh Rarebit from Fortnum & Mason. We tried some for lunch today and it was delicious. I'm going to keep the pot when...


The weather was really stormy today, so I decided to hide away in the kitchen and bake some banana bread. Check out Walnut & Dark Chocolate Banana Bread on Cut Out + Keep


Ugly Dumpling
It's become a bit of a New Years tradition to treat myself to a new satchel and when I spotted this gorgeous teal bag in the Cambridge Satchel Company sale, I had to have it. This one has magnetic...


I'm really going to miss watching The Shard sparkling from our window at nighttime in the run up to Christmas. I woke up early enough to see it at sunrise this morning and it looked too pretty to ...


It's a new year, but Bobbin is as cute as every and woke up looking extra fluffy after our hogmanay celebrations with Katie & Phil last night. I decided to kick 2018 off with a splash and make...

New Year's Eve
We were hoping to head up to Edinburgh for Hogmanay this year but we left it a bit too late to book the train and it ended up being cheaper for people to come here, so Katie & Phil surprised us...


George Michael Memorial Garden
Tom and I decided to head up north on the Northern Line today and explore Highgate. There were so many pretty houses and the view over London was amazing. We stopped for a drink at The Flask, a p...


I think I finally managed to perfect the rose latte this morning with my new recipe. Check out Pink Rose Latte on Cut Out + Keep


Treasure Truck
The family heading home early this morning and we were sad to see them go. It was also our 15 year anniversary, so I surprised Tom with card, new Converse and some cute luggage locks for our suitca...


Mind The Gap
With almost everything done for Christmas, I finally had the chance to relax this morning, so sat back with some rose & cardamom hot chocolate that we'd picked up from Lovecrumbs in Edinburgh a...


Christmas Shopping On The Underground
Instead of sending Christmas cards, each year we write a Christmas song and make a Lego video starring our friends. This year, we're having Christmas on the London Underground!
