As some of you may have noticed, the National Portrait Gallery opened a new show last week, showcasing the best of Vogue magazine: Vogue 100 – A Century of Style ((11 February – 22 May 2016). I haven’t had a chance to see the exhibition yet but I had a chance of seeing a preview of the merchandise and designers that are going to be available in the exclusive exhibition shop.
London – St Barts Pathology MuseumDecember 28, 2015
A few weeks back I finally managed to visit a place I had been meaning to visit for a long time: St Barts Pathology Museum. I am a fan of old-style Victorian museums, especially if they are medical or scientific. If they have old specimens or taxidermy then I’ll be all over it – I think it’s the closet goth in me… constantly struggling to get out!
If you want to have a look inside, do it at your own peril – although I didn’t get a lot of detail photos (I wasn’t allowed), this is a museum that is filled with human body parts.
Party Season Kickoff with Debenhams #founditDecember 18, 2015
I’m still catching up with my blogging – this happened a few weeks ago already, but it was such a nice event that I can’t keep it out of the blog. Debenhams, as always, put together a great evening full of beauty, bloggers and a cool place!
We were invited to head down to Mahiki – a cool tiki bar over at Dover Street, in Central London – for treatments, drinks and some festive cheer. Scroll to the bottom of the post if you want to go straight to the nice products I got to try.
#gamesonthebgo Murder Mystery eveningDecember 15, 2015
The other week I was invited to another fun event organised by Joe Blogs – a Murder Mystery night, with BGO (a gaming and entertainment company). I was very curious as I had never done anything like that before and I do spend a lot of time watching true crime shows as well as detective shows.
Unfortunately, things didn’t go so well for me as I got lost on the way to the venue, The Somers Town Coffee House in Euston and ended up arriving later than I was supposed to, not to mention a bit stressed. Thanks Google Maps! For that reason, I wasn’t a great help to my teammates in helping to figure out who the killer was, through solving a series of puzzles and exercising the art of deduction. In the end, we almost got it but if the poisoned bottles really had poison in them, we really would’ve died a horrible death.
London – Sushinoen, a Japanese dining experienceDecember 14, 2015
A couple of weeks ago I was invited to partake in an authentic Japanese meal, organised by the peeps over at NuffNang UK. As I am a huge fan of Japanese cuisine and I knew some of my blogger buddies were coming, I obviously had to say yes. The restaurant in question was Sushinoen, a place I had never been to before, in the Whitechapel area, in London. I’m glad it’s now under my radar, as the food was amazing,
I got there and met up with my fellow blogger guests, some of which I already knew, others I didn’t but was very happy to meet. I’m adding a list of all the bloggers that were present at the bottom of this post, so you can see their take on the meal if you like. Different people, different photos, opinions, etc, amirite? Plus, always nice to explore new blogs, if you don’t know them.
Read on, for some deliciousness!
