Peggy Porschen’s winter makeover

Us London locals normally avoid tourist hotspots like the plague, and yet here I am still regularly visiting Peggy Porschen, easily one of the most iconic and popular cafes in London (what?!). Truth be told, while Peggy Porschen’s cakes- probably the main item people go for when visiting- are a little too sweet for me, my secret favourite is their coconut milk lattes, which are easily one of the best in London!

King’s Road: A Morning Stroll in London

King’s Road has always been one of my favourites in London- it’s got the perfect balance of lively/homey- and with November and the season of Christmassy shop-fronts finally upon us, it’s now a better time than ever to go wandering around.

Granted- I do venture out to new restaurants, but always return home to my old favourites. Not this time! I…

Marylebone High Street: My Favourite Haunts

I spent the last couple of months abroad and so hadn’t been able to spend as much time as I would have liked with my brother Andrew, but now that I’m back in London, it’s great that we’ve returned to our usual adventuring! One of our favourite areas around London is Marylebone High Street- there’s just so much to see and do, shop and eat, discover and be reunited with- so it was wonderful for both of us to travel…
