Sunday Up Market & Spitalfields

My lovely friend Pippa, who I’ve known since my days at Derby Uni only lives up the road in Reading so we often try to catch up, and this time she was coming to me for the day. The weather was beautiful so we decided to spend the day exploring Brick Lane’s Sunday Up Market in The Old Truman Brewery and Spitalfields Traders Market.

Black & White

In preparation for the Moonwalk next Saturday, this week has involved a lot of walking. I decided to snap away when I was out and about to combine walking training with my love of playing the tourist card whenever possible. These photos have been taken in Regents Park, St James’ Park, Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens and along my walk to work..enjoy!

Summer 2015 Bucket List

London – The First Six Months

I have now lived in our fab Capital for six months and I’m loving London just as much as when I first moved here. Although I am often out doing something or eating somewhere, I haven’t made the slightest dent in what London has to offer. I don’t think feeling bored is possible as there is always plenty to do, regardless of your budget or location.

Banksy in Leake Street

Hello, I’m now a Londoner!

I have successfully made the move to our wonderful Capital, started a fab new job and I’ve moved into a lovely teeny tiny flat in the South West. Considering I lived out of a backpack for 12 months with only 2 weeks worth of clothing; space..who needs it?

This month, with the help of my very talented artist of a Brother, James, I have discovered the wonders of Leake Street.  Minutes from Waterloo station, Leake Street is a place where many artists and art enthuisasts go to paint/graffiti/tag legally. The place is covered.
