New Forest Adventures...

For Ben's birthday a couple of weekends ago, we took a trip to the New Forest (Ben had signed up for a 64 mile bike ride so we decided to make a weekend of it). We stayed in a quaint B&B just outside of Brockenhurst and spent a sunny Saturday wandering around the forest. The New Forest is beautiful and the perfect place for a quick getaway from London.

Soho Eats - Street Food Union

Working in Soho there’s always plenty of incredible places to grab some foo, but Thursdays and Fridays are by far the best lunch days because of Street Food Union. A stones throw from my office, this international food market pops up at the end of the week and is the perfect one stop shop for a quick delicious meal!

On Rupert Street, Street Food Union is an independent market set up by three food traders keen to champion the best up and coming talent on the street food scene. With dishes ranging from juicy burgers to aromatic curries, you’ll find it hard to choose – I’d recommend the Argentinian Steak Sandwich or the Korean Pulled Pork Flatbread! Next time you’re in the Soho area on Thursday, Friday or Saturday between 11am and 3.30pm, make sure to stop by!

Carsten Höller - Decision...

Last weekend Ben and I visited Carsten Höller's 'Decision' exhibition at The Southbank Centre. Starting with a pitch black tunnel, this immersive experience was different from the very moment we set foot into the Hayward Gallery. 

Sprawled out over several floors, visitors were given the opportunity to explore ideas of perception and decision making. From entering virtual worlds to deciding whether or not to touch an ever increasing pile of tablets, the experience was left down to us to make our way round and decide what to do. The best parts of the exhibition were definitely the goggles that flipped the world upside down and the slide to exit the gallery!
