Houghton Hall, Norfolk.
Raethro, Red, 1968 – Projection Piece.
A couple of weeks ago I visited the James Turrell’s Lightscape exhibit at Houghton Hall in Norfolk. It’s a bit of a way away from London, but if you happen to be in the area it displays some really cool light scenes and the grounds of Houghton Hall are beautiful and relaxing, total city escape.

I visited Bath for the first time recently. I’m a huge Hay fan and Bath is where their first UK store is situated so we went on a bit of a pilgrimage. Between rain showers we proceeded to shop, enjoy the architecture and made a coffee stop at Society Cafe. I rate their cappuccino. We also made a pit stop to see the Royal Crescent which was very impressive.
Sign me up to live in Bath.

Spent this morning with my sister enjoying the sunshine at Fields cafe on Clapham Common. Their ghetto omelette is killer, not to mention their slushies and Gen Mai cha soft serve with pickled cherries and rice – definitely photo worthy and weirdly delicious.

This weekend my friend Katie and I decided to do culture and visited the Serpentine Pavilion, this year designed by Selgascano. We played for a bit, marvelled at it’s shiny insides and took some polaroids of us looking baffled then headed off to Sticks & Sushi for some chow. It’s really cool and colourful and we expect its great lit up at night.

My sister and I managed to fit in a breakfast date last weekend at Tart London’s pop up in Queens Gate. Tart specialise in on-site cooking for fashion and film shoots and we were pretty pleased to snag a table before they close this weekend. We really enjoyed their food, especially the Indian scrambled eggs which were out of this world. We really hope they find a permanent spot so we can come a’brunchin.
Also really excited by possible book prospects – need that egg recipe.

I spent last week in Mykonos, Greece.
I’ve been to parts of Greece before, but this was definitely the most scenic place I’ve been yet with it’s classically Greek blue and white architecture enhanced by incredible sunscapes every evening at golden hour. We had the most relaxing time, mostly spent drinking a lot of prosecco and eating a lot of great Greek food. That and some scorching heat is really all I need on holiday.
We stayed at Cavo Tagoo, which played host to the most insane breakfast scenes, complete with an entire pastry and dessert table laid out every morning, which we went to bed eagerly thinking about every evening. We also ate at their Japanese restaurant Kiku on our last night, which definitely deserved a round of applause.
We were lucky enough to enjoy a selection of great meals whilst on Mykonos: one of the most memorable was lunch spent at Kiki’s taverna (without electricity), of which we had heard good things. It looked down over a pretty, secluded beach set in a little cove, and by the time we had finished our meal, a queue was forming.
Between various intervals spent eating, we tried to allocate some time to culture – must see’s include the island of Delos (an ancient archaeological site) and the beautiful whitewashed Church of Panagia Paraportiani (pictured above).
The only regret? I never did meet the infamous Mykonos pelican…
