6 Ways to Prepare Your Bedroom for Autumn

Now that September is almost over and the weather is getting noticeably colder (and unfortunately rainier), it's time to accept that autumn has officially arrived. There's definitely a national divide between those who welcome all things autumnal with a lot of festive cheer, and those who dread the darker days and colder weather. Although I love summer, I definitely belong to the side who get excited to wrap up warm in the crisper weather and see the seasonal changes as one step closer to the most festive month of the year.

Review: Gallows Rope – Steiner Theatre

After a short run at the Bread and Roses Theatre earlier this month, Mamet Leigh’s play, which looks at solitude and society in 21st century London, took on another three performances at the Steiner Theatre this weekend.

Review: Sweeney Todd - Simply Theatre

Having seen their exceptional production of Rent this time last year, I was really looking forward to seeing how Simply Theatre took on Sweeney Todd. Though Rent had set my expectations high, Sweeney Todd couldn’t be much more different musically so there was no chance of a repeat performance.

Review: The Dhow House - Jean McNeil

This month from Legend Press I opted to read The Dhow House by Jean McNeil, a novel about an English doctor, Rebecca, who has been forced to take leave from her position at an East African field hospital. The majority of the book follows Rebecca’s time at an aunt’s house in Africa, as she gets to know her family and the luxurious life they lead, worlds away from Rebecca’s previous realities.

6 months, 6 London Landmarks

Although I had visited most London landmarks and attractions before moving here, since I only lived less than an hour away, there are still a surprising amount of infamous sites and interesting areas that I am yet to visit. And now that I’ve moved here I have no excuse, so I’m making it my mission to visit the following locations all within the next six months. That doesn’t sound like too much of a chore, does it?

Lisbon: What to See, Eat & Do

If you watched my vlog, or read High Street Haul: The Lisbon Edition, Sephora Haul or Lisbon Outfit Diary then you’ll probably already be sick of me squeezing as much content as I can out of a seven-day trip from back in June. After spending 3 months travelling last year and having endless places to write about, I just can’t let go of the travel section of my blog. Plus, I haven’t actually blogged about the city itself yet, so just bear with me whilst I mention Lisbon for the final time. I promise.

The Sunday Brunch Post, Episode XVI

It's Sunday Brunch time. Which means it's already been a month since we moved to London. Which means that time is going to have to slow right down. 

I mean, we're just three Sunday Brunches away from Christmas. I'm just going to pause for a minute while you let that sink in. Mmhmm.
