Bristol Street Art
“Igfest is a festival like no other. Where other festivals have mud, crippling ticket prices and questionable hygiene, we have robots, zombies, ninja death cows, sweetshop bank heists, biblical sized water fights and powdered paint. Lots of powdered paint! We’re back for the fifth time September 5th-8th, bigger, ballsier and more bonkers than ever before. The infamous zombie chase game, 2.8...
Lakeside Cabin in Sweden
When my friend Chris invited me to go to Sweden with him for a weekend of board games I asked myself, why not? So I booked the plane and soon found myself walking through the woods of Ryggen, Sweden (about 3 hours northwest of Stockholm) to a beautiful lakeside cabin. We were lucky enough to come the weekend of the annual crayfish party. A crayfish party is a traditional summertime eating and...
Every Friday night during July and June, the London Zoo opens its doors for a night of music, talks, drinks and of course animals! The zoo itself was fairly small, but has over 750 different species spread out around Victoria Park. It was a great night out and I didn’t need to shove squirmy kids out of the way to see all the cute animals!
Sushi, Sake and Anime!

Whitecross Street Party For The 'Non-Conformists'
Met up with Ami, Shanti and Vivi for a day of eating in Brick Lane
Camp Fire 1.0
I first heard about Fire Hazard through Londonist when they listed Eggs of the Alien Queen as an event for Easter Weekend. Since then, I’ve met most of my closest friends through Fire Hazard. When the idea of a camp weekend with FH came about during a pub session, I knew I had to be involved and make it happen. We scouted some locations and finally settled on The Willow Tree Centre in...
Evening Photo Walk
What can I say about my first UK festival? It was brilliant! I think Latitude was a perfect choice as it is one of the smaller festivals that has elements of comedy, art, theater, cabaret, poetry, dance and literature on top of a great musical line-up.
“The Sunday roast is a traditional British main meal served on Sundays (usually in the early afternoon for lunch), consisting of roasted meat, roast potato or mashed potato, with accompaniments such as Yorkshire pudding, stuffing, vegetables and gravy. There are (at least) two opinions on the origins of the Sunday Roast. One holds that, during the industrial revolution, Yorkshire families...
St Nikolai & St Michaelis Church - Hamburg
Hamburg is Much Greener Than I Imagined
It’s been AGES since my last update. Sorry :( Look out for an incoming photo-purge of epic proportions over the next few days…. Anywho, this is Stadtpark/Blankenese - Hamburg:
Pieces in Hamburg
Compared to what I’ve seen in London so far, Hamburg had a TON more graffiti throughout the city. Granted, Hamburg doesn’t have the gazillion cameras everywhere. There were also a bunch of lazy tags strewn onto buildings, electrical boxes, and light poles. But definitely some great pieces to be seen.
Had the chance to visit Hamburg, Germany last week for work. WEEEEEEEEEEE PICTURES This is the Binnenalster, a big lake in the middle of the city center, surrounded by the Rathouse (Town hall), hotels and shops. Swans! with the Rathouse in the back :3 Duckies Canals run throughout the city. Hamburg has more bridges inside its city limits than any other city in the world and more...
Shoreditch Street Art
Spent a weekend walking around Shoreditch looking for street art. Definitely found some. Plan on going on a banksy walk at some point in time… Interesting storefronts right outside the Shoredtich Station
Country Walk in Lewes, Sussex
This drizzly Saturday I joined my flatmate and some friends on a 10 mile hike through the countryside. It was overcast the whole day, but the fields were green and the air was crisp. Definitely a nice change of scenery from the busy London streets.
My sister ended her European holiday in London. She treated me to my first London musical, The Jersey Boys and a few dinners :)
After visiting the Tower of London I walked across Tower Bridge over to Borough Market, one of the larget food markets in London. Unfortunately it was about 10 minutes before closing so I didn’t get to see as much as I’d like. However I was able to snag a delicious lamb sandwich from one of the vendors :)
Tower of London & Tower Bridge
Been a bit shit about updating. Went to Tower of London and Tower bridge last weekend. “The castle was used as a prison since at least 1100, although that was not its primary purpose. A grand palace early in its history, it served as a royal residence. The Tower has served variously as an armoury, a treasury, a menagerie, the home of the Royal Mint, a public records office, and the home...
My London Flat
Before: After: Still a work in progress, but I have all the basics set up now. Muji Acrylic Box ♥
Easygoing Easter Weekend
Wanted to go see Teen Daze at The Lexington, but apparently they had issues getting into the country… Guess I’ll have to find another gig…
London Is As Walkable As New York
Playing Tourist on Good Friday
Met up with Ami and played tourists around the city (finally)
London - Days 2-5
I have 8 days to find a flat in a strange, enormous city. No big deal. Yes, I went straight to work on Monday after my arrival and I’m jet lagged like hell. I can do this. Monday: 1 viewing Tuesday: 3 viewings Wednesday: 2 viewings Finally, I get a message from one of the places I viewed and they picked me! Thank baby Jesus! And they were my top choice :3 One other flat wants to know...
London - Day 1
My last few days in California were great. Dinners with amazing friends, supportive family and the best boyfriend. I couldn’t thank everyone enough. ♥ Tastiest chicken thigh, liver, heart, wing, breast. Bacon wrapped mochi and Crap croquette. Most amazing beef.
I haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on my list.– Susan Sontag
