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 »

We were seated right near the entrance of London’s first all day Brasserie. Aside from it being Continue Reading »

Wahaca rocks the faux fajitas!

Wahaca Review Charlotte Street London

If you’re an American living in London, chances are you are going loco for good Mexican food. It’s no secret that London’s Mexican culinary scene isn’t bustin’ anyone’s piñatas. And if you’re a gringo who previously lived in California, Texas or Florida (like me!), you REALLY know your burritos from your enchiladas. Verdad?! So, when my friend invited me to Wahaca on 19-23 Charlotte Street W1T 1RL for her Feliz Cumpleanos drink, I was skeptical. Continue Reading »
