One of the best things about autumn in London is the London Restaurant Festival.

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 […]

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. While Googling their site […]
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).

“Hurry up and get dressed,” said my flatmate, James 1. “We need to leave.” “I am dressed,” I said sulkily. And it was true, because if you can’t wear your ugliest hoodie and voluminous elephant-print trousers to an outdoor movie screening, then, well, when can you wear them? (Except of course inside, with all the […]
“We actually had an email come through last week,” drawled the drag queen, who was sporting an enormous blonde curly wig and a full beard, “asking if we really had naked boys reading.” There was laughter. “Of course we fucking don’t!” she shouted into the (well dressed, immaculately groomed) crowd. And thank goodness for that, […]

A few weeks ago I rode my bicycle down the towpath from Angel to the East London Liquor Co in Bow Wharf for a #ZomatoMeetup. It was a beautiful golden afternoon and the canal was not its usual swampy self but a sparkling green ribbon winding its way to Victoria Park and beyond. London’s towpaths are […]
The mouse stunk. It was lying on a sheet of newspaper, and I was going to stuff it. If all went well, it would be posed in a whimsical position with a miniature top hat, but right now it was just a piece of rotting meat. Imagine leaving a raw chicken breast out for a […]

It was much higher at the top of the platform than it had looked from the ground. The golden afternoon had seeped away and there was a bit of a wind picking up. In the distance, a phalanx of purple-grey clouds looked like they meant business. I’d just climbed up a very, very high ladder […]

My legs hurt. They burn with the realisation that no matter how many miles you notch up jogging around the local park, you’re still going to ache like a bitch when made to sprint an indeterminate length of time from a standing start, which is what Mike, James 1 and I spent Sunday afternoon doing […]
