What I love about Spring is that it not only brings sunshine/blossom and lots more smiley people, but it also encourages us to get outside and experience London life at its I am very excited to read about Kensington Palace's new interactive exhibition. In association with WILDWORKS, featuring Vivienne Westwood, William Tempest, Stephen Jones, Boudicca, Aminaka Wilmont and Echo Morgan... this temporary visual delight invites you for a small fee (£12.50) to experience a magical, mystery tour of the palace with fashion, music and performance to set the scene for a real royal treat.. :D

Being a foodie and coffee lover! I'll be bringing you my favourite trendy coffee shops along the way...
and just when I thought I knew most cafes in NW London...Here s one that I discovered today...
Get cosy with your fellow tea drinking neighbour... and visit GINGER & WHITE.. quaint and quirky..bursting at the seams with home made cakes and best of British faves like fish fingers, pastrami/mustard n pickle sandwich, bacon roll with spicy tomato ketchup and sweet treats a plenty...
get down to Perrins Court, Hampstead, London NW3 and visit this very British coffee shop : )

JERUSALEM lives up to its hype!

Not much will get me out of bed on a Saturday... but there are exceptions! one being getting in line at 8 in the morning for tickets to see Jez Butterworths new sell out smasher of a play at The Apollo.. Jerusalem...
It was touch and go whether the early morning effort would actually result in a ticket but low and behold, 10am.. Front row seat.. I am a happy camper!
Were the hours spent q-ing worth it? 100%! tearful/shaky and amazed... Mark Rylance's performance was hypnotic and reduced me to tears of laughter and sorrow... he is a genius, together with his ensemble cast including Mackenzie Crook (The Office) and Tom Brooke (the Boat that Rocked) who were simply superb this original and powerful masterpiece left me speechless.. (which if you knew me is very rare!) 4 standing ovations later.. I was out on the streets of Shafesbury Ave and some how back at the stage door... Call me a groupie or even a super geek.. maybe! but sometimes one just can't resist! Evidence attached! ; )
