A visit to The Spirit of Christmas Fair
Christmas came early this year... Our little miracle is almost 12 weeks old and wiggling in my womb as we speak! Frenchie and I could not be more excited - and I am already completely in love with my little princess! So what better way to celebrate this beautiful new chapter in our lives, than to go out and enjoy London in preparation for Christmas?… (6 comments)

Luxury shopping with Afternoon Tea at Fortnum & Mason
There is a place in London, that is very special to me! I simply can not pass by this department store without entering - (and coming out hours later with loads of signature turquoise bags in my hands). This place is a must-see for visitors in London - and literarily left me speechless the first time Frenchie took me here. Welcome to Fortnum & Mason!… (15 comments)

The secret summer garden at Oxford Street!
I love shopping! Especially in London, where you can get more or less everything you want! But sometimes shopping can be a bit exhausting - and you get to a point, where you just want to escape all the hustle and bustle! It was only recently that I found out, that this escape actually exist, and even better - it is placed in the middle of Oxford Street! Believe or not, it is on the roof of John Lewis … (8 comments)

This is a bit of an unusual post for me to write, because I always try to show the positive sides of London - and you guys know, that I SIMPLY LOVE MY CITY, but for some reason I felt the need to share my ambivalent shopping adventures in Old Bond Street with you. … (4 comments)

Everything looks better in colour – which is why, you should go to Notting Hill!
Notting Hill... I never knew about this wonderful place, until I saw the romantic film with Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts! I assume most tourists go for Trafalgar Square, Regent Street and Piccadilly Circus when visiting - but there is so much more to London! So my mission today is to make newcomers aware of this beautiful little part of my beloved city, that is so vivid and colourful that it shines even on a rainy Sunday. … (4 comments)

Bonjour, Bordeaux!
This weekend Frenchie and I went to Bordeaux! In spite of having a massive cold, I was really excited to go. I'm quite a Francophile! I mean... what's not to love? The food is amazing, the wine is out of this world, the language is the most beautiful in the world - and the men are... (well, Im living with one, so you know what I mean!) … (6 comments)

There is no place like Carnaby Street
Discovering London can be quite a challenge, if you only have a few days to spend in this marvellous city. It is so rich in history, that it can be difficult to know, where to begin for a newcomer! There is however a very special place, that always makes my guests from abroad very excited - and this place is Carnaby Street… (4 comments)
