The topic of sustainable living is a very current one, especially if, like me, you live in a crowded city like London. I have always been fascinated by the concept of minimal living and keen to find out how it is possible to maximise our living space without impact on the urban footprint. Partnering with MINI has given me the opportunity to explore the topic more, as it was participating to the London Design Festival with its MINI LIVING URBAN CABIN.Read More
My first memory of London is of when I was a little girl watching "Mary Poppins", the scene when Mary Poppins is descending from the sky with her umbrella is the one that stuck with me most: Big Ben, the river Thames and those rooftops made me dream of London from a young age. However, I wouldn't get to visit London until the summer before my last year at High School, when I begged my parents to send me to UK for a few weeks to improve my English, to my disappointment when we booked the trip it was recommended I wouldn't go to London, but a different cities for a better chance to immerse myself in the culture and avoid being surrounded by Italians. So I spent three amazing weeks in Canterbury.Read More
I live and work in West London, so when I venture to central London I usually feel like a tourist in my own city and, at the same time, I am reminded of how much I love London and why I love this city so much. At the beginning of April, I spent the perfect Sunday just doing that and was also lucky enough to have great weather.
The day of exploring started at the National Café at the National Gallery, because no day can't start without a belly full of carbs. The National Café had just reopened (on 6 March 2017) after being closed for just under two months and it is now part of Peyton and Byrne's restaurants- which include The Wallace Restaurant.
In February I decided to write a post talking about my latest discoveries in terms of restaurants in London with the intention of making it a monthly occurrence, if possible. In London, there is always a new restaurant opening or restaurants opening after being closed for refurbishment, plus there are many restaurants that have been there for a while and I never had a chance of visiting- as a matter of fact I have a very long list of restaurant/ brunch places I must try at some point.
I am going to start with the perfect dinner at The Game Bird at The Stafford London, I was invited with a group of instagrammers/ bloggers, to taste the new menu following its recent re-opening following a refurbishment.. You will not stumble across this place, unless you were looking for it, and it feels like stepping back in time and I would not be surprised if that street had been used as a filming location for a period drama.Read More
London has a great choice for food, me and my friends always say we could easily eat out every meal in a different restaurant and we would still have not covered all London restaurants in a year. I often get asked for recommendations on where to eat out and I even though I already have a list of favourite places, I have decided to try write a post every month with my favourite recent discoveries.Read More
