Is Orange The New Black?

Is Orange The New Black?

Stepping into The New Black was like stepping into the future. As you spot the sleek black windows off Philpot Lane in Bank with its clean design you know you have arrived. Welcome to the world of digital coffee. I feel like my entire trip to London centred around coffee. I explored new coffee corners,…

A cup of Truth Coffee at the London Coffee Festival 2017

The London Coffee Festival saw a variety of coffee connoisseurs, enthusiasts, roasteries and caffeine junkies gather at the Truman Brewery in Brick Lane, London. It was a four-day event of coffee tastings, brewings, latte art, music and brewing; essentially everything to do with the coffee industry. This year we had our own proudly South African Truth Coffee steal the…

“Adventure in life is good; consistency in coffee even better,” – Justina Chen What could be better than being huddled in a room with coffee from all around the world? The strong smell of freshly ground coffee wafts through the air. It is a pleasant mix of dark aromas twisting through conversations and between coffee cups….

Brunch in Balham

Brunch in Balham

It was another gorgeous day in London. I woke up to a clear blue sky and white cherry blossoms draped in front of my window. I am settling into London life. I get up in the morning and do some blogging for work before I make my breakfast oats with flaked almonds and chopped banana…

A Day at the Boat Race: Oxford vs. Cambridge

A Day at the Boat Race: Oxford vs. Cambridge

I am slowly finding my morning routine. My Sunday started with Chewie taking me for an early morning run around Morden Hall Park. Although it was a clear day, the morning was cool and I layered up to brace against the chill. There is something so picturesque about Morden Hall Park in the sunlight. The…

Spring Time in London City

Spring Time in London City

I’ve sort of fallen in love with spring time in London. It’s quite enchanting really. In the few days that I’ve been here, I’ve seen the trees tickled by the change of seasons. The cherry tree leaning over from our neighbours garden has burst into flower, sprinkling my morning view with petite white flowers. The…

The Colours of the Camden Market

The Colours of the Camden Market

It was a simple trip via the Underground to get to the Camden Market. My brother and I have visited it on our last visit, but with limited time to spare. This time I hoped to get lost between the stores and the colours of the Camden Market. But which one? After doing a little research,…

The Best Hot Chocolate in London

The Best Hot Chocolate in London

I spotted the purple building on the corner of Broadwick and Wardour Street in Soho. I had read that the best hot chocolate was served at Paul A. Young, and here I was. I eyed the hot chocolate as I walked in the door. The dark liquid simmered as the chocolatier stirred it. Onlookers peered through…

I can smell spring. My cousin warned me the weather had turned. But seeing is believing. I will be spending the next three weeks in London, visiting my cousin and dog sitting. I hope to use this time to explore the little corners of this cultural hub. Hence, I have decided to make this visit…

Getting into Flight Mode

Getting into Flight Mode

I remember the first time I travelled abroad. It was all a mad panic. I visited Dubai in 2009 and I had no idea how to navigate an international airport. There were constant announcements blaring over the speakers, long queues and a series of misadventures to locate the nearest restroom. Now I navigate the airport…
