The Book of Dust and a very photogenic mug. A very indulgent lunch dessert. Flying to Barcelona. The Sagrada Familia. February is the shortest month, so does seem to fly by, but this February really did seem to storm past me, hence why this post is definitely later than it should be! This was possibly… Continue reading A Month in Review: February
A view of the 02. Early morning pink skies above Canary Wharf. The most amazing sushi I’ve ever eaten at Mei Ume. A view of Westminster rooftops.

Eating a somewhat underwhelming meal on the first floor (good for… Continue reading Postcards from Paris
