Homeslice – London Food Edition

When I was looking up restaurants to eat in and out of Covent Garden, Homeslice appeared several times across different mediums. I spent quite some time drooling over the endless photos I found on Instagram; read through countless reviews and knew I would have fomo if I didn’t stop here during my time in London. Before I go off on a tangent about how amazing their pizzas are, I want to mention that we visited 2 of the 4 Homeslice locations. Quality and service is consistent throughout both locations however, the shop in Covent Garden – inside Neal’s Yard to be specific is a must visit. When we walked through the small alley way to…

London Travel Diary – Meeting Big Ben

Within our short 4 day trip to visit London, we actually made 2 separate treks to see Big Ben. Our first visit was at the end of river cruise that took us from Tower Bridge all the way to Westminister Bridge / Big Ben (more on that in a separate post). Our second visit consisted of us waking up bright and early (5am to be exact) to arrive right at sunrise to catch some good shots of the Tower & Westminister Bridge. No visit would be complete without a visit to these infamous tourist spots. The weather that particular morning was especially chilly & crisp – just the way I like! Here are some of…

Breakfast at Duck & Waffles – London Food Edition

I spent the last 15 days falling in love with different parts of Europe and it has been one of the best trips for me so far. Before this trip, I’ve never stepped foot on European soil so this vacation was definitely an eye opener for me in many ways. Our first of many stops was London and I instantly developed an attachment to the rhythm of the city . It’s the hustle and bustle of the London that makes me feel like I’m at home. One of the best views of the City of London was found during our breakfast at Duck & Waffles. Steps away from Liverpool station, Duck and Waffles is situated…

Saturday mornings at Souk Tabule

Can’t believe summer is officially over! Makes me a little sad that the patio weather will soon disappear before us – I remember making it my summer goal to hit up a new brunch spot every weekend. I surely brunched quite a lot but have been incredibly back logged with everything happening here and there but nonetheless, its definitely but a busy and fulfilling summer. A few weeks ago, my friends and I visited Souk Tabule for brunch out in the Canary District. The atmosphere in this eatery is quite relaxing. I can see myself grabbing a latte and tucking away in a corner to do some work with my laptop. My favourite part of…
