Brighton is a colorful, quirky seaside resort town just an hour train ride away from London. On a recent day trip, I made it my goal to consume as many desserts in Brighton as possible. With all the desserts I ate, I could have buzzed back to London on sugar power alone… but alas, the […]
The UK is currently celebrating Sugar Awareness Week, whereas I celebrate sugar on a daily basis. Unfortunately, this awareness week has put freakshakes in the crosshairs with a call to ban these delicious creations with “grotesque levels of sugar and calories.” I choose to describe them as containing an immense amount of happiness… but po-tay-to, […]
With the increasing amount of millennials on the move, it’s no surprise that hotels are rushing to meet the demand of a generation who wants the world (but also wants a bargain).

In the heart of the London, near St James’s Park, Buckingham Palace and Westminster Abbey, there’s a gorgeous, historic 4-star hotel bringing a bit of buzz to the city. St. Ermin’s was converted into a hotel in 1899, but previous lives saw this property as a chapel in the 15th century and a mansion in […]
I’ve taken cooking classes all around the world. I learned to make Thai food in Thailand, French food in France, and Italian food in Italy. It only makes sense that I’d learn to make vegan food and cocktails in London. I was invited to a vegan sushi and cocktail class at The Avenue Cookery School, […]
