The queues for this Parisian creperie stand say it all. Located on Hampstead High Street, alongside the King William IV pub, La Creperie de Hampstead has been a permanent fixture since 1980, and is always fashioning a queue. For over 30 years, La Creperie de Hampstead has been serving up traditional Parisian crepes, with all manner of sweet and savoury fillings from asparagus and cheese to jam, or chocolate, hazelnut and cream. With over 25 different flavour combinations on the menu, the choices are almost overwhelming. Although the queues can get pretty long on sunny days, it’s definitely worth the wait. Heading up to Hampstead on an overcast day, with the odd patchy drizzly shower, the queue time was only about 15 minutes! Definitely a winning situation. …

Escape the city. Let’s face it, sometimes we really want to, or even need to. Just to grab a moment of serenity. Just for yourself to breathe, take 5 and think about the here and now. Not let any of the work stress or city anxieties, the daily to-do list or bills, get through. Just to relax. The city can be a little too much sometimes. Always on the go, constantly something to do or see. Working days are known to be longer in the big smoke too, and with everything on top, it can get a little much – and that’s perfectly normal. Escaping at lunch for a break (when possible) isnt really always escaping either, with everyone available at the end of a…

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…

It might have been a Monday night but who can turn down plans when they have the word ‘Gin’ in them? Especially on the bluest day of the week (Well I think it is). I’ve suddenly become a lover of Gin over the last few months, Alex (the bf) just doesn’t understand my love for the stuff,  but we are in the middle of a “gin-naissance” so I’m sure most of you guys will appreciate why I now go for a classic G&T as my go to drink. A tasty and refreshing, light drink that won’t weigh me down or make me super bloated for the evening! Lucy and I heard about the Gin Social which is held at the Graphic Bar in Soho and just…

Recently, in a will to do something a little different I booked Alex and I tickets to Ripleys Believe It or Not. Neither of us had ever been to any of the locations, even though Alex has lived in London his WHOLE life apart from his university years, and so I thought it could be pretty fun. I needed something to look forward to on my weekend too with work being crazily busy, and a plan like this was just what I needed – I keep telling myself I can’t spend my whole life at the gym 😛 I booked online on the friday for evening tickets for the following day, these let you go along any time after 5pm and even include saturdays. The…
