Let The Vegans Par-Tea At London’s 8 Best Vegan Afternoon Teas

As a nation we love indulging in an afternoon tea. We get giddy with joy, perhaps even slightly high from a sugar rush and an intense caffeine hit, but imagining life without the finger-sized sandwiches, scrumptious cakes, clotted cream covered scones, and copious amounts of tea is unbearable. Well, luckily for us, this isn’t a reality, but what about your plant-based friends? Let’s face it, one of the things stopping us all from becoming vegans is the thought of never being able to indulge in one of London’s finest afternoon teas, but living in a city as food crazy as London, […]

Are You Headed To London’s Biggest Summer Party?

Is it just us or does the summer seem to be slipping away with the wind? And what the heck happened to the summery weather we’d grown to know and love so dearly?! The nights are already drawing in, winter is itching to make an early appearance, and we’re losing our mind over the fact all of the summer pop-ups are coming to an early end. But in an attempt to soak up the last of the summer, pop on your maxi dress, grab your heels, and why not head over to the mega summer garden party happening over at Battersea […]

Does Your Dog Want To Get Married On A Peckham Rooftop?

Everyone loves a wedding! The dress, the hymns, marquees and cake; there’s nothing more special than the solemn vows and the party afterwards, a deeply meaningful combination of the spiritual and plenty of spirits, the bringing together ancient families and oldest friends in a binding forever union. I mean, surely there’s nothing you’d want more for your dog? Yes, the city that’s got everything just struck again, and this time it’s offering your dog, your actual dog, the chance to get married on a rooftop (er, ‘wooftop’, surely?).

Did Ed Sheeran Just Open A Restaurant?

We’re just thinking out loud about something… namely Ed Sheeran’s new restaurant which apparently is a thing. Sneaky Ed has apparently bought a restaurant somewhere in London, rumoured to be Notting Hill, which is unsurprising seeing as Ed loves hills so much (Castle on the HILL and all that). But, aside from this thin on the ground info, we know little else! Ed has teased us with an Insta post, as celebs often do, and has shared a bottle of Ketchup on the gram. This could be because his restaurant will be about all things ketchup, given how much Ed […]

Are You Going To London’s First Ever Floating Jazz Festival?

Iced tea, gosh we flippin’ love it. It saves us from hangovers and Britain’s occasional heatwave, and it kinda reminds us of being on holiday. But we must admit, our heads were somewhat turned back in February as the UK’s first and only cold brew tea bags, made using real tea leaves were released and, as if by magic, all of our Lipton dreams came true. We’re not the only ones to have got ourselves in a tizzy either as, this weekend, Real Iced Tea by Lipton are throwing an epic jazz inspired floating festival called Jazz On The Water which, unsurprisingly, will be London’s […]
