Friday Favourites #54

Man, it's been a busy week! I spent a couple of days away for work (like you didn't already know! I haven't half harped on about it), caught up with the family, spent a few days in the office and now Luke has the weekend off, so we have a long family weekend planned. Yay!… Continue reading Friday Favourites #54

12 hours in London

I mentioned yesterday that after my day in Brighton last week I headed into London for a couple of meetings. With one meeting in Southwark at 10am and another in Clapham Common at 1.30pm, plus a flight from Gatwick at 8.25pm, we had some time to explore.

V&A Hollywood costume exhibition

When I say "I'm a film geek", I don't use the expression lightly. It's not like someone saying "hey, I'm such a film geek. I really can't wait for the new Twilight film".
