I know I’ve been banging on a lot about breakfast lately, but it really is the most important meal of the day. Besides, I’m a big fan of eating breakfast out in London. You get your big fancy meal at the beginning of the day, when you’ll burn it off best; it’s cheaper than dinner; and […]
It isn’t news to anyone who knows me that I am very, very impatient. I hate to wait, though of course it’s totally fine that everyone else has to wait for me when I’m late to shit. Which is all the time, because I am chronically unpunctual. (It’s a disease, officer.) When Time Out London […]

I bought my first ring from East London designer Kat&Bee last year, and it’s had a lot of wear. I can get quite severe dermatitis on my hands and it can flare up pretty gruesomely sometimes (think Orlando’s dad in the first Pirates of the Caribbean), so Kat&Bee’s lightweight designs are perfect for me.

We needed to steel ourselves for the tedious task of buying Mike a new suit. My flatmate James 2 had given us strict instructions, but Mike was completely clueless about what he wanted (because he is a man), and so was I (because I am not a man). We ended up at The Black Penny, the newish […]
It was 3:30am and the table was a battleground, strewn with barely tasted dishes and splattered with scarlet (not blood… we had just finished the ‘Red’ round the most of the sauces were coloured accordingly). We were – we had come to realise – pawns in the latest madcap experiment of gastrolunatics Bompas & Parr, […]

Carla had just got a new job, and we were in the mood to celebrate. By wonderful coincidence I had been invited that same weekend to road-test Chai Wu’s ‘Ladies Who Lunch’ menu, which although suitably celebratory also seemed a little alien, but only because I am a practising glutton whose natural ladylike demeanor does not […]
Watching a movie in London doesn’t have to involve sticky floors, overpriced Pick ‘n Mix and screaming child-infested auditoriums. Instead, support one of London’s unique independent cinemas; most are cheaper than the multiplexes (and you can spend your savings on the in-screen bar).
