I'm a country girl at heart, but a magpie for the shiny, cultural and unusual things that this city offers. I moved here three years ago and have an ever-growing to-do list of things to do, see, drink and eat.
Meeting drunken randomers in bars doesn't appeal to me, so I enlist the power of the algorithm...let's see what happens!
Weekends, you'll find me out of the house, exploring London's nooks and crannies, latest exhibitions and leafiest parks, and having cocktails or brunch with friends. I love the epic nights out put on by The Last Tuesday Society, White Mischief, Rumpus and Secret Cinema. If there's electro swing, I'm in!
I've spent a summer as a Rocketry counsellor at a camp in America, helping kids make the most splendid rockets on earth.
I love to take my culture-vulture tendencies outside the UK and explore other lands. I've travelled to Peru and Bolivia, eaten guinea-pig and trekked the Inca Trail.
I love the outdoors. You'll find me hiking up a mountain a few times a year. In London, I'll do my best to escape to the parks, lidos and Hampstead ponds, and go exploring on my trusty, rusty bike. Want to try a bit of urbex — anyone game?
I'm happiest making things; be it a logo with the wacom tablet, a costume with my sewing machine, or a flowerbed from a pallet with the electric stapler (best tool ever), or a Sunday Roast.
Touching my nose with my tongue.
I don't really watch much TV. Not even Breaking Bad. Or Game of Thrones. But I've got a big list of films that I'm slowly getting through on my LoveFilm account.
Big fan of Moulin Rouge / 2001 A Space Odyssey / UP / Lost in Translation / The Island / Anything with Ewan McGregor in...
My favourite meal of the day is brunch. Ideally smoked salmon and poached eggs with great coffee. Usually find some time at the weekend to do some baking - trying to perfect my cupcakes!
Music-wise, I have quite varied tastes. At the moment it's Parov Stelar, Steve Jablonsky and the Buena Vista Social Club.
Family + friends
And the 6 things I COULD do without...
Instant mash potato
Snails in my garden
Is it tea o' clock yet?
When do I get to try an in-vitro burger?
Where's the next adventure?
