Alex and I ventured South of the river – a rare occasion, but it never seems to disappoint – to check out the food & drink at the newly relaunched Aquum, on Clapham High Street. Aquum can be found halfway between Clapham Common and Clapham North, nestled on the High Street, close to several other bars and restaurants. It’s recently had a makeover, and has relaunched as a greek food destination and bar, which is open until 3.30am – they have a DJ too, making it place you got spend all evening and get a boogie on (or throw some shapes, depending on your dancing style). The interior is really contemporary and sleek – I loved the hanging decor! I started with a Fairy Tail Fizz…

Last week Alex and I had date night at Coin laundry on Exmouth Market – a lovely location with so many cute restaurants, bars and bistros I want to try, Coin Laundry obviously having been one. Coin Laundry is on the corner, at the end of Exmouth Market, and feels really spacious, yet welcoming inside. It’s pretty contemporary upstairs in the restaurant area, and the bar downstairs is really cool and cosy! We obviously picked a spot on the sofa as it was free. These pictures were kindly supplied by Coin Laundry as it was a little darker when we went, and I obviously wanted to show you how cool it was! One of the first things I spotted on the way to our cute…

On my way home one evening from work, I saw it. The poster advertising Rebel Wilson playing a part in Guys and Dolls at the Phoenix Theatre. And that was it – I had to go! It wasn’t long before I’d found one of my friends, another big Rebel fan, who also wanted to go and so we bought tickets quickly, as not to miss out! We almost got box seats (how amazing would that have been!), but these got snapped up, so we found two great seats in the first row of the Dress Circle, and they were only about £50 each – Not bad for a London theatre trip with a great view! Just before heading in to see the show! Arriving a…

Crazy golf and mini golf always remind me of holiday. I think apart from one time when visiting one of the besties in Bristol, it’s the only time I ever play it! Yet recently it appears to have become a new craze in London’s social scene, with several pop-ups and a permanent residency opening in the city, to offer us Londoners something different to do. Alex and I decided to try one of the new spots out for date night the other week. Myself, promising not to have a strop halfway round from pure frustration at putting the ball, booked us two tickets for Junkyard Golf which is currently housed in Truman Brewery on Brick Lane.In case you don’t know – Junkyard golf has three, nine-hole…

I used to LOVE trampolining when I was at school. In fact, it was the ONLY sport I looked forward to during high school. It’s not that I’m not a team player, it’s just until after I left for sixth form I hated sport altogether and this was the only one I was anywhere near good at. Plus no one had to rely on me having a decent aim, throwing in the right direction, kicking a ball hard enough or running fast enough haha.  Now trampolining has turned into a nationwide craze, with numerous trampoline parks having opened across the UK. Eager to indulge my inner 15year old, I recently booked Alex and I tickets for Oxygen Freejumping, the trampoline park in Acton, for a date…
