The London Diaries: Barbican Conservatory

Hidden in the depths of an iconic Brutalist architectural structure in the centre of London is a jungle. The Barbican conservatory is the second largest conservatory in London, and is a veritable tropical oasis. It’s only open on Sunday afternoons, and some at that as it gets booked up in advance for weddings. The perfect […]

Travel Diaries: Canada Roadtrip – Banff

This is the last blog post in my Canadian Roadtrip series, and although it’s been over a month since we returned, I still miss the mountains, and my nostalgia has only been heightened by getting to look through all these beautiful photos all over again. From Jasper we set off along the famous Icefields Parkway […]

TRAVEL DIARIES: CANADA ROADTRIP – JASPER

Jasper, Jasper, where to begin? I think I had a million photos of this beautiful national park (mainly of Maligne Lake tbh), and I wish I could share each and every one of them with you all.

Taking inspiration from Luhrmann’s […]

The London Diaries: Horniman Museum and Gardens

If you’re anything like me and the thought of visiting London’s V&A, or the Natural History Museum on a Saturday afternoon fills you with fear, you might like to try the quieter and smaller Horniman Museum and Gardens, tucked away in SE London. The Horniman Museum and Gardens is a 5 minute walk from Forest Hill […]
