A Faux Lunch between Foes at Pho Restaurant?

Pho Restaurant Sunny in London

What do you do when an ancient rival contacts you about meeting for lunch? Well, Sunny friends, I said ‘yes’. My foe lunch date at Pho Restaurant was absolutely Pho-nom-e-nal! Pho Restaurant’s Head of Marketing is a Florida girl just like me. But, I learned through our email exchanges that she’s a University of Florida graduate. That’s a huge problem for this Florida State University girl, pho shizzle! I was skeptical about an invitation from my school’s biggest Continue Reading »

The best sunny London day experience…

Welcome to The View from the Shard! Whether you’re a born Londoner or visitor, taking in this Continue Reading »

How to find the best places to eat in London!

Places to Eat in London Eating London Food Tour

Finding great places to eat in London can be a bit overwhelming, especially for an expat. It isn’t  because British food is not as exquisite as other cuisines. In fact, I think it’s just the opposite! London not only offers an exceptional array of international food options because of its diverse populations, but also offers really wonderful native food. It’s just a matter of knowing where to go! This is why I highly recommend the Eating Continue Reading »

Ride the Emirates Cable Car in London’s Sunny Skies!

Riding the Emirates Cable Car London

Mr. Sunny and I enjoyed riding the Emirates Cable Car experience so much over the summer, that we decided to do it again! The first time we went, we had our own cable car, but the weather wasn’t ideal. Yep. It was actually quite yucky. So, when I received notification mid-morning recently that my press pass was ready at the View from the Shard, I decided taking another ride on Emirates cable car would be a great ‘pre-game’ activity in Continue Reading »

A London Blogger’s Weekend in Hawaii, Mexico and…

London Bloggers Kona Kai

At the close of yet another sunny weekend,  I wanted to give you a little peek at a London blogger’s life. My Friday night started with an Internations event at Kona Kai. It took me 90 minutes to get to Fulham because I live in North London. Although the whole place was reserved for this expat organisation, I struggled to meet people. The venue and drinks, however, were fantastic. A bartender even gave me two free ones. It Continue Reading »

Why you need a Snowflake on a Sunny London Day!

Snowflake Sunny London

What’s better than a delicious, creamy gelato on a  sunny London day? Each time I’ve been through Soho on my food adventures (see my reviews of Burger and Lobster, Bubbledogs, Wahaca and Wagamama), I’ve been teased with this store front on Wardour Street… I would always pause, drool through the window like a puppy, and wonder what was in ‘luxury’ gelato. One day I popped in just to have a quick glance to tease myself further. Not only did the gelato look Continue Reading »

The Mr. Sunny in London Pub Crawl- “Avoiding Selfridges”

Mr Sunny London Pub Crawl

It’s no secret that Mr. Sunny designs every London Pub Crawl I write. He takes great pride in the research, and… he does a damn fine job. He just asks to be paid in beer. Our most recent pub crawl was completely impromptu. We had a dinner reservation in the St. Christopher’s area and were early. We popped in to the Lamb and Flag on James Street for our standard small vino and Stella. Mr. Sunny grabbed our liquid sunshine from Continue Reading »

La Brasserie London- Chic Cocktails in Chelsea

La Brasserie London Chelsea Afternoon Tea

When a neighborhood Super Blogger like Kings Road Rocks invites you to join her at a Chelsea hotspot like La Brasserie London, you have rocks in your brains if you decline. Therefore, I eagerly arrived at La Brasserie London at 4pm on Saturday to meet with both Mina from Kings Road Rocks and Angie from Silver Spoon London. We were seated right near the entrance of London’s first all day Brasserie. Aside from it being Continue Reading »
