Yep, I have not written for a while … This is due to the utter monotony I have let myself get into – a monotony which is paradoxically on steroids, thanks to the illegal lockdown currently in place in the UK. This is not to say that I have not been practicing what I preach; ie always do something worthwhile each day – only that … Continue reading Live & Let Live 💓🙋♀️
As I am waiting for the Eurostar 9039 to depart towards Blighty, I am feeling very pleased about my little allegedly evil excursion back home (eye rolling is included in this paragraph).
Sure, I did not get to take my mum out to eat at her favourite buffet.
Sure, I did not have a classic steak-frites with my dad in the heart of Saint Michel.
Sure, I did not get to see my nephews go crazy at the local soft play area whilst me and my brother just destroy crêpes and coffee.
(Yeah,we like our food)
I saw all my family. We hugged, had a laugh, ate dodgy takeout and I even played the classic 90s games Worms with my bro. And I lost … Dammit!!Continue reading “A Blast in Paris 🇫🇷”
Holding on to the past is a thing of the present, because the present has no future … At that particular moment in time, I realised that for this bakery, this “2018 moment” was as good as it will ever get – at least for a while. And so I gave it a glow up, inspired by the very buttery goodie it received recognition for. … Continue reading The Butter Glow 💛
This reaaaaaally looks like the kind of place I would confidently walk in to have my nose scavenged harder than a goldmine for the paltry sum of €90, and a result as fluctuating as a yo-yo dieter’s weight. And yes, this is a legit “test center” in France; and most of them are scattered opposite pharmacies. Is it perhaps to sell them the cure after … Continue reading Spotted : Unsanitary Insanity in the City 💉😏
… politically incorrect person with ovaries? As I was strolling around Waterloo Bridge this weekend, the song “dude looks like a lady” from Aerosmith came up in my Spotify playlist. And I couldn’t help but reflect that in today’s ridiculously oversensitive society (but not when it comes to actual misogyny), this song would probably never have made it onto the airwaves… And what a shame … Continue reading Dude Looks Like A …😒
My evening walks have been taking me to the same places lately. A Groundhog Evening type of thing. However, I decided to switch it up a bit on Saturday and head over the Holborn / Aldwych area. It was rather nice and relaxing, and I enjoyed seeing more illuminated buildings. They don’t call me Thunderella for nothing … Continue reading Back to the Spotlight in the Future 📸
I did appreciate the irony of seeing this plastered in the outside world, right by a bunch of lovely humans socialising carefully in the heart of Soho [you know it can be done right? drinking from your own cup without slobbering germs and particles all over somebody else?] … The second thing that made me seriously roll my eyes, is that carefully crafted noose at … Continue reading Mood of the Day : Rage Against the Machine(s) 😡🤬
… aka London is lit, part 2. I really enjoyed my evening stroll tonight [and totes cremated my pasta bake calories yasss], but once again I got reminded of what was once, and what is today. Seeing all the Christmas decorations and window displays truly doesn’t hit the same when all stores are closed, and the streets are littered with nasty covid barriers (like this … Continue reading An Electric Night … 🌟⚡
Some say that the best things in life are free. Wish.com begs to differ and raises the 2020 stakes with “the best things in life come for free with expensive shipping”. And what did I do? Claim my goodies courtesy of the Chinese postal service, of course! I must say that Trump did miss a trick with the “Chinavirus”, my package arrived on time AND untampered; … Continue reading Is Wish Wishy-Washy? 🛍️
