Don’t be fooled, this is no prank. Dunkin’ Donuts have officially opened their first store in the U.K. since leaving 20 years ago well at least to the London area to my knowledge. I can remember finding this out, as if it were yesterday… “Harrow-on-the-hill” “I’m sorry what?” “We have to go to Harrow-on-the-hill, that’s where they opened Dunkin’ Donuts!’” Honestly, I live in west London, well more south-west London and the mere thought of commuting all the way to Harrow-on-the-hill is well… daunting. BUT, mention the words ‘Dunkin’ and ‘Donuts’ and suddenly i’m reminiscent of my holidays in L.A.… View Post
All good things come to those who wait.. Okay, what I mean is if you walk further down Edgware road, you will eventually reach a black building, with the words Dar Marrakesh on top. Sitting at the corner of a smaller road, Dar Marrakesh doesn’t look like your typical shisha lounge, in fact it looks more like a pub.

So since when did Westfield London update its restaurants on the Southern Terrace? Either I’m totally late to this news, or I’m just oblivious to any restaurant thats not Nandos or Byron. Having just come back from Los Angeles, I wasn’t exactly comfortable with spending ridiculous amounts of money. It’s much easier for me to say no to that top in Zara, or those pair of heels from Office. But food? Hell no. My weakness, and I’m always down for trying something new. Walking in Wesfields with my girls, we we’re unsure of what to have for dinner. There are… View Post
A moist, soft and fluffy red velvet cupcake with a gold star on top…three stacked oreos topped onto a chocolate sponge cupcake…a chocolate chip cupcake with a cookie on top. All with icing just sweet enough you can eat more than one…maybe eight? At what started out as a small treat for her daughter, had soon turned into a cupcake frenzy, with friends and friends of friends all wanting to order these special delights. Baked and decorated by local Islington resident, Quyen Duong, 31, she had no idea she would be changing her career after spending 15 years working in… View Post
