The idea behind Tinggly is that you can buy a gift for loved ones without really having to decide what the gift is. This makes it particularly handy when it comes to … Continue Reading

… and I’m not typically a burger person but more on that later. But before we get started, I’m gonna recommend that you honker down with a nice cuppa tea (or perhaps even a margarita) as this is a rather photo heavy post. 😉 One of my favourite parts of living in Central London is being … Continue Reading

1.) Trying to justify the ridiculously high price you paid for that cocktail. (“It was just £17, which is really good when you think about it…” No… it isn’t. 🙂 ) 2.) Throwing all the rules of decency out of the window when a free seat opens up on a crowded train 3.) Thinking that … Continue Reading
