This is my food, travel, and lifestyle blog.

Newly married, living in a new city (London, UK), and taking on a brand new chapter in life, this blog is my record book for things that I am learning and discovering along the way. Soon to be thirty and driven by the desire to live long (and prosper), I’m now raising the bar in the way I cook, eat, move, work, laugh, love, and do things.

If you find yourself on the same chapter of your life, you might find something useful here.

 Scroll down and enjoy!
