On Change – I Need A New Name!

Hello, Hi! It’s been quite a while now hasn’t it? I suppose you could say my life has changed quite a lot in the last year or so and blogging has kind of sat on the back burner for a little while. Even while I was still trying to blog at times throughout this year, none of it has felt quite right and I’ve slowly come to accept that maybe I’m just not ‘From Europe and beyond’ anymore and that’sRead more

12 Reasons To Eat And Drink Your Way Around Hackney Wick

East London isn’t exactly a secret with how much its areas are becoming vibrant “must visit” places. Hackney Wick has all the makings of Shoreditch and Dalston in terms of how quickly its blossomed into a hub where people want to hang out, but has managed to remove the part where you’re left feeling like an utter dickhead for not being cool enough to hang out there from its makings. So for that reason and the fact that I feltRead more

Why Every Girl Needs An Online Tribe

Back in the days of dial up internet, Myspace and Msn, I remember my mum instilling the fear of God into me over not talking to strangers on the internet. Stay away from Habbo Hotel, she would warn me. Every now and then she would inspect my list of Msn pals and make sure that they were all people that I actually knew in real life and weren’t people I’d met on the good old inter-webs. While I am thankfulRead more

My Very Hungry Guide To Kings Cross

Growing up in Barnet always found my usual jaunts to be the likes of Camden, Leicester Square, Covent Garden etc. Kings Cross was always just a tube station that I’d see on the map, and never held any reason for me to go and spend any real time there. Fast forward to the last couple of years, and its actually become a real regular for me. Living in Welwyn Garden City, meeting up with my friends is usually here asRead more

This Is What A Day With Anxiety Feels Like

I’ll have a couple of hours of deep sleep and then wake up in a nightmare like state. What have I forgotten? Why did I say that thing I said at 10.12am to Barbara from accounts 3 weeks ago? I’m paralysed and stuck back to when I was living in hell all those years ago. Rich is next to me so my conscious knows that I’m safe, but it’s really quite hard to accept and believe it. I’m awake forRead more

How To Spend A Weekend In York

Oh, the grand old Duke of York, He had ten thousand men; He marched them up to the top of the hill, And he marched them down again. And when they were up, they were up, And when they were down, they were down, And when they were only half way up, They were neither up nor down! Remember when I was all about that being perpetually single life and wrote a post about it here? Well it feels like I blinked,Read more

DID you know that there are more Indian restaurants in London than there is in Mumbai?! So it comes as no surprise that finding your favourite Indian restaurant in London can feel like an absolute chore. Yes, Brick Lane is supposed to be the place to go, and don’t get me wrong, I’ve never had a bad experience in Brick Lane but nothing has ever stuck out to me as the absolute best Indian I’ve ever had either.

11 Times I Put My Arms Up In The Air For Absolutely No Reason

When I wasn’t sure whether I was singing ‘I’m a little teapot’ or if I wanted to try and fly. When I was greeting all 0 of my mates as our boat pulled up to shore. When I thought the higher my arms went up, the more likes I would get on Instagram. When I was either waving or just trying to be seen behind the water. When I thought I’d channel the Leaning Tower Of Pisa. When my palsRead more

Absolutely Smashing It In My New Weekend Job

I’ve been living for the weekend and holidays for quite a long time now. Working full time in the week has left me absolutely gagging for that sweet, fun weekend ahead! That was until my tax bill propped up around the corner and I realised I needed to SAVE SAVE SAVE. I decided to email a load of local venues saying something along the lines of “are you taking on any staff at present? I’m hoping to take on something casualRead more
