“Art does not exist only to entertain, but also to challenge one to think, to provoke, even to disturb, in a constant search for the truth”


The Remedy Wine Bar, London

REM*E*DY.
noun. cure – medicine – drug – medicament – medication
verb. cure – heal – repair – redress – correct – mend – rectify.

The Remedy is a neighbourhood wine bar and restaurant located in Fitzrovia, close to Fitzroy Square. (This neighbourhood used to bring on anxiety because the Institute of Masters of Wine is located there). It has always been relatively quiet in the day and I imagined filled with locals in the evenings.

Two friends (David Clawson and Renato Catgiu) that met whilst working at Terroirs (also a restaurant and wine bar in London) are behind this brick-lined cosy hideaway. It’s a place to stop in for a drink and a meal before heading out into the night. The small restaurant was brimming and happy but thankfully not cramped on what may have been one of the hottest days of the year.

Sunken Cities: Egypt’s Lost Worlds at The British Museum


Needless to say, there are not enough hours in the day for me. I’ve been for a 10 kilometre run, imbibed my green monster alkaline smoothie with my new Nutribullet, packed my suitcase for New York and it’s not even 11:00AM…And of course I am already late!!  I am dashing as usual. This time instead of meeting a hot date, I am on my way to a fabulous antiquities exhibition at the British Museum, Sunken cities: Egypt’s lost Worlds (currently on from 19 May – 27 November 2016).

An exceptional Tuesday evening with Sir John Soane


I am running South on Lincoln’s Inn Fields—a rather dexterous endeavour—considering the 9cm Gucci stacked heels I stupidly selected to wear this morning…. unbeknownst to the mad dash I would be making now. This is of course complicated by the James Perse bodycon dress I am wearing which was clearly not designed for sprinting down the streets of London!

Hay-on-Wye Literary Festival


In recent years I seem to have swapped music festivals for literary festivals. But then I was never particularly good at music festivals. The baby-wipe showers, abstaining from food and drink in an effort to avoid the toilets and getting suctioned into mud baths always marred the experience for me.

Cherry Blossom in Tokyo


I like to believe that I am a feminist and usually don’t agree with the gender stereotype of “pink and blue” – but when it comes to Cherry Blossom in Tokyo I couldn’t agree more! – These beautiful shades of pink blossom are so breathtaking, these lusting views, make you wish your whole bedroom and wardrobe could be covered with these pink shades!
