New London Architecture: NLA Exhibits

I walked past the NLA one day and decided to check out their exhibits.  There was a really great exhibit about the different borough that surround a giant model of the city. This was my Borough… loved living there. I miss it now… sad face… […]

Wandering from Old Street to Barbican – London, England

I took the train into London yesterday. Coming up into the sunshine out of Euston I went and spent some time with the Treasures of the British Library. Leaving to go meet a friend for lunch I headed back to Euston and as I got on […]

Chotto Matte – Japanese Peruvian Fusion in London

Chotto Matte – Japanese Peruvian Fusion in London

Japanese and Peruvian fusion you say? I was going over the menu online and my mouth started to water as I read words like sweet potato, avocado, peruvian corn, tuna sashimi, seabass, yellow chilli and grapefruit citrus salad… the combinations … oh my. They’re putting […]

Regent’s Park – Queen Mary’s Garden – Southeast

Regent’s Park – Queen Mary’s Garden – Southeast

Queen Mary’s Garden is my favorite part of Regent’s Park. It was created in 1932 and named after Queen Mary (obviously) who was married to King George V. There are around 12,000 roses in the garden and since they’re suppose to bloom in June I’m saving that […]

Thames River Tour – Millennium Bridge to Greenwich

Thames River Tour – Millennium Bridge to Greenwich

This is the follow up to Thames River Tour – Westminster to Millennium Bridge… the rest of the pictures. The thing I took away from the tour is what the acronym WHARF stands for…ware-house at river front. I still think it’s a cool piece of information. […]

I got a Groupon for the Red Rover River Tour and my Honey and I cashed it in. We chose an inconvenient day to wait in line for it… it was long. So after waiting in line for about 30 minutes, being constantly bumped by […]

Creative Stitch + Hobby Crafters Expo

Creative Stitch + Hobby Crafters Expo

I should have written about this weeks ago… when I actually went. It was out at the Excel London. I’ll say I had never been to a craft expo before and had no idea what to expect. I am overwhelmed right off the bat when […]
