Flying Etiquette: How Not To Be An Absolute Dickhead!

The older I am getting, the less willing I am to accept people’s selfishness… ESPECIALLY on a flight. I always find travel can turn even Mother Theresa into Donald Trump in certain situations… but I implore you to cling onto that ounce of lovely human being with all your might when you are up in the air. Mate, we are all tired, we are all sweaty, we are all uncomfortable and we can all hear that baby crying, but IRead more

REVIEW: Dirty Bones, Kingly Court, Soho

It was a dark and somewhat chilly Autumnal evening when my nose led Rich and I to Dirty Bones. It was all by complete accident but what an extremely happy accident it turned out to be! I didn’t end up taking any photos as I was off blogger duty for the evening but it was too yummy not to come here to write about… so I’ve lifted the images throughout this blog post from Dirty Bones’ Facebook page so thatRead more

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

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
